Community Regarding Frontal or Temporal Lobe Brain Injury

Hello all,

There wasn't a community geared toward being supportive of those affected by frontal or temporal lobe brain injury, so I recently created one.

Here is a synopsis of the community:
WHO is this community for? People affected by frontal or temporal lobe traumatic brain injury (tbi) in one or more of the following ways: has a frontal or temporal tbi, interact with someone who has that, relevant medical professionals, students, and those simply interested in making a positive difference in the lives of those affected by that.
WHAT are this community's goals? Bringing individuals together to communicate with each other, discuss relevant topics, and share resources, support, and inspiration.

The community is located at http://community.livejournal.com/front_tmprl_tbi . I look forward to seeing you there. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note.

Kind regards,
trustpects

Manifesto "Dyudrok" (The new psycho-reality)

(New Experimental Art)

1. In connection with the so-called global crisis art movement "POP-REVOLUTION"
(with the partial assistance of ART-REVOLUTION) and the artist Artyom Suslov
as well as several other free artists decided to create and implement the concept of
promotion of new art "Dyudrok."

The essence of this art is to re-establish the own way of avant-garde and surrealism.
Dyudrok included any avant-garde and modern art with blurred boundaries of genres and
unlimited fantasy of the author.

At the moment, the world economic system as well as world political system infringe
on the majority of rights, freedoms, opportunities and even hopes of man.
In this regard, decreasing the creative capacity of most people because
it decreases the level and scope of vision as well as the hope of translating its
into reality. At the time of the current crisis, a simple man forgets about high ideals,
he dreams at a low level. Dyudrok must to protect people from objective reality.
We believe - the objective reality that is at this level of crisis can and should move to
second place. We have the right to push it into second place if we give to the man a
new reality, which will carry the title of "objective". what is now "objective" will take
second place, or just disappear for a man.

Accordingly, we believe that everyone, regardless of his religious beliefs, his status in
the society, and regardless of the sanctions, which in future could be taken against the
"Dyudrok" has the right to go to the new reality at any time, partially or completely .

2. In our view, any human rights organization and any commission or authority that
to deal with human rights have the obligation to protect the right of every adult
in the transition, partial or complete, in a different reality.

3. If the man who entirely gone in a different reality according with the laws of this reality
can no longer be capable - this is his personal decision as the new reality does not contradict
the existing laws and not causing harm to anyone. Neither does the campaign leading cause harm.
No one is obliged to support the individual's life in old reality when he left a letter of
advice (note) with the signatures of witnesses.

4. The departure of a reality, as well as assistance in this, not an injury to humans,
because the only thing involved in this process - the human imagination.
But imagination does not belong to the bodi, as well as the experiments of the imagination
is not harmful for the rights of mental functions.
Accordingly, there is no room for any regulations on the intentional infliction of harm or death to
humans. Also note that imagination is fully subject to his master.

5. Relatives and friends of man who passed away in a different reality have the right to challenge the
decision through the courts or through the human rights organizations and and demand to return
him to the reality in which they are located. In doing so, c. 5 is partly contrary to the core - 1 item,
and further debate on this soil can be resolved only in the mutual agreement of the parties.

6. As Dyudrok is not limited with anything and depends only on the human imagination,
it does not conflict with any law and religious customs.

7. For the same reason (not limited and opportunity
giving own properties) Dyudrok and concept its development
and its veneration is not any organization or religion
nor the political movement. Because Dyudrok do not have its own symbols and beliefs.

The author of the Manifesto is Artyom Suslov.

Florida's legal system is a joke!!! Only this joke isn't funny...

Things have been especially awful the past few weeks...

I finally took Brenna to a counselor for her night terrors and panic attacks a few weeks ago, to see if we could get help finding ways to cope. Everytime I asked her father to please give me her medicaid number to take her somewhere for this, he would argue that she wasn't experiencing these things at his house so he saw no problem. I finally decided to just pay out of pocket and sought help. During her initial 2 hour session, she disclosed that her father had never stopped sexually abusing her all these years, since the investigation when she was 3. She told the counselor about the abuse and also that she thought he was now doing it to her little sister. She asked the counselor to please help her and said she wanted her dad to go to jail.

An agent with DCF came out and did an interview with her a few days later. She again reported the abuse, though from the info he gathered, it sounded like the last time he sexually abused her was in 2nd grade (about 12 months ago) so they can't consider it a current threat, but do believe there is a possible transference of victims to the 4 year old sister. He said unfortunately these sexual abuse crimes with children are the easiest crimes for these men to get away with. It literally takes DNA to put them away and get the children out of harm. DCF then had to hand the case over to Seminole County (just like last time).

I had to bring her to be interviewed by another counselor where a Seminole County criminal investigator and cpt investigator, along with a specialized counselor watched behind a mirror. She made a third disclosure, so they opened a criminal and also a cpt investigation. They told me to go ahead and keep her even though it was her father's custodial time with her. They said they were going to ask him to come down for an interview along with his other two kids. He of course denied all of Brenna's disclosures and they got no disclosures from the other two children in the house, so the criminal case was quickly dismissed over to the state attorney, as they said it is now just her word against his.

They gave me a list of specialized counselors telling me I should start taking her to someone on the list, instead of the lady she had just started seeing. They also said I needed to make Brenna available for phone calls from her dad at any time he wished to talk to her. I was cooperative. I explained to Brenna that her father would be calling for her soon. She was very afraid of his anger now that he would know she had told on him. I assured her that he would be in his best behavior with everyone watching him so closely right now, so he was sure to be very nice to her. When he called she slipped back into her sweet, high-pitched little girl voice. (Which was later described to me as one of her defenses.) In the meantime, not knowing how things were going to go with scheduling and me working Monday-Fridays, I was proactive and enrolled her in a gymnastics, tumbling, cheer camp that she was really excited about, paying for a full week up front.

I made an appointment for that following Monday evening to start with her new counselor off the list. A woman with 23 years experience dealing with child sexual abuse victims. Brenna made some very descriptive disclosures to her. That counselor said she suffers from severe post-traumatic stress disorder from the years of abuse, which is why she is experiencing panic attacks, bed wetting and problems concentrating in school. She said she has no doubt from what Brenna told her that her father is abusing her and the other children are in danger over there. She described other forms of abuse including screaming things like "You're crazy!" directly in her face as loudly as possible to psychologically break her down into thinking the abuse didn't happen and to disuade her from telling on him. Also using scare tactics and then bribery to make her feel like an active participant of the abuse, making it less likely that she would tell with embedded fear and guilt for accepting his gifts.

I reported her session disclosures the very next morning to the cpt investigator. But she didn't seem terribly interested in it due to the fact that the cpt team already had their meeting before an advisory board scheduled regarding the case, and she would give me updates later. I expressed urgency that she call the new counselor for her testimony right away. She was very dismissive and ultimately went before the board later that afternoon without having heard it at all.

The cpt officer then tells me I need to bring Brenna to the sherrif's office for another interview. There she doesn't conduct an interview, but instead tells me that Brenna is to go back to her father! I broke down in tears immediately and demanded to know why and what was to happen next. Any time I questioned their decision to throw her back into the abuse, the investigator would throw his rights as her father in my face. Apparently as a child, she has no rights herself!!! The investogator would act like anything Brenna had told me (or that I myself had experienced living with the psycho) about the awful nightmare of a situation over there was b.s.! Then to top it off she asked me to give up my scheduled visitation that week because this perp missed his time with her while they were conducting the investigation on him!!!! I didn't respond with an answer, but the investigator acted like it was a done deal and I really didn't have much of a say in it anyways. She then went to get Brenna to bring her in, so I could let her know what was going on. She told me to collect myself so my daughter wouldn't get upset seeing me so emotional! Well excuse the crap out of me for having a difficult time with all of this!!!!!!!! I spent the next 15 minutes struggling to get a reign on my tears. Brenna finally came in, saw my face and knew that she was going back. She teared up and came over to get a hug from me. The officer acted like she was looking out for Brenna by giving her her phone number to call if she needed anything at all while she was at her dad's for the next week and a half. I explained that she has no access to a phone because he has the only cell phone in his possession at all times. I pointed this out earlier, saying Brenna had told me on several occasions that she has no way to call 911 in an emergency without going through her father. The investigator sneered at me saying she had several times during the investigation been able to talk to the girlfriend with no problems. I explained that not once in the 5 years that that woman has been with him had she EVER been allowed to answer the phone! That he was only making things appear a certain way for the sake of the investigation. He did the same thing last time. He knows exactly what to say and how to respond to everything to not be convicted. It's not brain surgery to figure out what he's doing now! The investigator finally agreed to ask Brenna's father to allow her to bring the cell phone I brought her for our house with her over there.

By the next day he had promptly pulled her out of camp saying she had no reason to go because he is home all day with her. I couldn't get him to answer any of my calls after that, nor was she able to answer her cell phone after the first time he walked in the room in the morning and she was on it with me. It was turned off after that for the rest of her visitation or left behind when they went places.

I confronted the cpt officer about all of this on the phone the next day and said that I never agreed to give up my time with Brenna. She threw it back in my face that I didn't respond, so they had already allowed for it and I had to honor it. I explained that considering the emotional state I was in at the time that was hardly fair. She did her sneering voice at me again asking what was so important that I had planned for us that weekend. I said I wanted to continue with our normal activities of going to Farmer's Market and Science Center and also thought it would be good to start going back to the Unitarian Church we used to go to. She laughed out loud and mockingly asked me when was the last time we went to church. I told her it had been several years, but I felt that during this difficult time it was good to seek more positive community support and that the children used to enjoy the religious education classes there. She said that was ridiculous. If we had waited 3 years then it could wait one more week. I expressed that in the light of current events it was especially in her best interest to spend at least some time with me this weekend so she didn't feel completely trapped after sticking her neck out to tell many people about the abuse only to end up being sent back into the environment. I also expressed concerns about his obligations to keep her in counseling. She said that he had already agreed to cooperate by taking her that Monday. That right there was my only relief in all of this.
In response to me telling her that he had pulled Brenna out of camp, even though camp was something that the investigator herself had asked me if I was going to look into two weeks prior when they had me keeping her, she now defended his right to pull her out of it (despite me paying for a full week). She said that since he had missed his time with her the family probably just wanted to spend extra time with Brenna now and that was understandable. Then she threw in a jab at me, asking just exactly what kind of camp was this anyways. I told her that I had called her right after enrolling her and told her where it was, what it was and how excited Brenna was about it, and at that time she had said that was very good for her. I became sick of the jabs at me when pleading for my daughter's rights in all of this and finally yelled at her that I couldn't believe they were now penalizing me and my daughter for this man having been investigated by them for being a deviant pervert! She demanded for me to calm down. I told her to please excuse me for having emotions, being a worried sick mother knowing my daughter is back in the hands of a pervert. I said that this was certainly not easy on anyone, and to that she agreed with, sounding sarcastic.

So I have to resume our regular custody schedule. They're not necessarily closing the door on the case, but it sure doesn’t do much for Brenna's well-being! From what the counselor told me this past Monday, she is currently seeing 7 girls who have fathers doing the same things to them, but the father’s are given full access to these kids because of the way the system is set-up! It is truly one of the easiest crimes to get away with here! She said half the time with how severe these cases are, they almost pray for these kids to catch an STD from their dads for the legal system to finally have enough evidence to put these perps away and get the abuse to come to an end for the children to begin healing! The case isn't necessarily being closed but WTF! She's being forced back into a really harmful environment for the sake of this perp's rights!!!! I'm so disgusted with the system here! It blows me away!

Anyways... I hardly ate anything last week nor slept. I was a hsyterical balling mess, not really much for communicating with anyone... And now I'm just plain irate about all of it! It needs to change! These children need to have rights to a healthy life! There is so little attention brought to this issue and only other moms going through it have any idea of just how strongly Florida's legal system is protecting these perps paternal rights over the children's. This has to STOP!!! It shouldn't take such extremes as an std, severe mauling or death to get these children protection! A father's custodial rights should not have precedence over these children's lives and emotional well-being!


If anyone knows any other moms in Seminole County or Florida in general experincing this kind of legal blockade keeping their children in a dangerous environment, please, please ask them to get in touch with me...

Subjectivity and Profundity

Objectivity without a predicate nor a coefficient is what I mean by 'pure objectivity.' It is hard to imagine objectivity without the one imagining it, but that is precisely what objectivity is, independent of the subject. Such a conception of objectivity is, self-referentially, a conception still, but the concept's abstraction gives it the power to transcend finite concepts, just as the concept of the infinite does. In this same way, the infinite as a concept transcends its own status as a concept, since it is defined as that which overflows definition. Therefore, though pure objectivity (superjectivity or surjectivity) cannot be pinned down (yet pure subjectivity is the epitome of pinning down since I have defined it as the Infinitesimal), it yet can be known by the concept "Profundity," the source of all meaning and value, or the absolute value of value, or the absolute of value, or the value of the absolute.

So of course Profundity is a concept, and as such a form, but the syntactical object, the literal word is definitely distinct in what it signifies, which is its meaning, the only meaning which can truly be a consense, the only meaning which can be absolutely agreed upon, the meaning of meaning. The semantic object of the term is the infinite of significance. An object derived from objectivity is a contexturalized content, and so a latency of profundity, but a value still, since it is a content. But a content (particularized) is not polycontenturality, which, drawing on Gotthard Gunther's polycontexturality-as-subjectivity thesis, is Profundity.

Thats what I mean by transcendental objectivity. Objectivity in parentheses is the profane and omnipresent object of experience to which those who call themselves materialist-objectivists are attached, and they are the so-called empiricists, but their affiliations do not degrade transcendence itself. Transcendence is inherent to integration, and thus to integers, which even empiricists count on. Empiricists are overly-analytical, and to this extent, they do not appreciate the totality which is one and whole, since they analyze it, in whatever terms, at least in terms of their own consciousness. This is why and how their consciousness lacks essential novelty, and ultimate profundity.

Pure Subjectivity, in my view which I believe is correct based on my experience so far, is the transcendental oneness of the Infinitesimal, the dimensionless point which traces all distinctions, and from the literature I'm into I've identified it with the term 'first distinction' from Spencer-Brown and the post-disciplinary field of cybernetics and semiotics which took to it, but its meaning can be easily inferred, for instance, by comparison to the popular term 'first dimension.' I call it the Infinitesimal since this is how it appears in relation to its background of the Absolute Infinite. It is the entity which traces all distinct forms which appear in every regard, it is the one.

The Infinitesimal: There Can Be Only One, but who else believes that?

Does anyone know of anyone else's view of the infinitesimal, unity over infinity in fractional form, which is the unicity of one-ness (any unit) which condenses to singularity (without a multiplicity of singularity, acknowledging the paradox, ignoring the plurality)?

I mean to quote the Highlander "There can be only one" [such entity]. I mean, how could there be another in the same frame of reference? They would condense to being the same one. Newton, Leibniz and Abraham Robinson adopted the definition of infinitesimal[s] as non-zero, but less than 'any known number,' suggestive of the "unknowable" aspect of this number, but its not so much unknowable as not graphically representable. Every point has some dimension, its expression is its extension. So the real dimensionless point (usually considered ideal, in contrast to real) is not visible, but it is because it is the viewer, the point of perspectivity, of the observer. If viewed, it could only be sight in itself, of itself.

The definition "non-zero, but smaller than any known number" opens the discussion for a plurality, and reason would have a multiplicity of such entities as they represent the infinitesimal distinctions all forms of and in our world, which compose it. I contrast this view with the singularity of the infinitesimal, that there can be only one real or true infinitesimal. The only other person (in this case, a mathematician and philosopher) I've found to hold this view is Lorenzo Pena of Spain, editor of the electronic journal Sorities. Is there anyone else?

I don't think multiplicity or plurality doesn't exist, of course it does, but there is no discontinuity of parts, it is contained in the continuum ("the real number line" R in mathematics), the four-dimensional space-time matter-energy continuum in our experiential case. The contents of the continuum plus the continuum compose the totality which we are given, the present. That totality is the unicity of one-ness, the singularity, the Infinitesimal. Other continuums (there must be infinitely many) also condense to the Infinitesimal this way, it is the alpha and omega in common. I identify it with the First Distinction of Spencer-Brown, which cybernetics has taken to. And I set the First Distinction in contrast with the First Dimension, that linearity of the number line (expression of the continuum), the first dimension being the first expression of the first distinction which is ever-present. The First Distinction is the cybernetic Proemial Relation between pure subjectivity and pure objectivity, and every distinction (and keys, key distinctions) are only instances of it. The transcendental distinction (also called difference) is the Spirit which animates us (as the point of perspectivity, the supreme being seeing itself being, that 'negativity within God'), the point at which the pen (-ultimate) strikes the paper (or 'page of assertion,' 'unmarked space') in the book. The abstract pen-point of punctuation is the programmer of all programs, the allegorical writer, the author, one-self, the Spirit as negativity in God, and I've found it to be with mathematical precision "The Infinitesimal."

So my question is, who else demands one true infinitesimal? Or am I to take credit for this radical conception of 'unity over infinity'? Please stop me from that, I don't want to be so alone in this expression. But I've searched a lot, and haven't found much confirmation.
