Time to Slaughter the Greedy God Whom Hast Stripped Us Of Our Common Language

I wonder if in other disciplines/fields of study, there is as much confusion, disagreement and misunderstanding when it comes to the semantics regarding both those engaging in the practices of the field, and what it is they do.  When it comes to the field of psi or “non local perception” (a word that most of the world has never heard of, including the majority of those who actively practice or inadvertently utilize this skill), part of the difficulty in coming up with a cohesive and agreed upon vocabulary is that the existing words are so emotionally charged with connotations that the ego (particularly the male ego or those who want approval from it) just can’t bear to be associated with it.

So they develop new smart guy sounding words, like “non local perception” and then confuse the hell out of mostly everyone else by insisting that what they are doing is not what the definition of the word says they are doing – namely utilizing and developing their “psychic” abilities. This reminds me of Sigmund Freud, who is quoted in Carl Jung’s autobiography, “Memories, Dreams, Reflections” as insisting, after a demonstration by Jung that there is such a thing as recognitions and telekinesis, that even if his entire sexual theory was wrong, it needed to be upheld as a “bulwark against the unknown tides of occultism”.

Also reminds me of Hans Christian Anderson’s story “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, but in reverse: Instead of the emperor thinking he is wearing clothing when he is not, he is thinking he is not being psychic when he is, and everyone else can see it except for him and those who want to be in his favor.

Once a “natural
