Sometimes I think to myself if it’s a good idea to study gangstalking trying to dissect it and understanding it. If I’m not missing a point itself and going into wrong direction? If it’s a weapon designed to kill/injure just like knife would and someone injures you with a knife in dark alley is it good idea to start studying metal types used in blade manufacturing, knife types, wound types, sharpening stones, knife armor, defense, etc. I guess first thing to do would be to get help with a wound and avoid that dark alley next time, but what if you know that it’s inescapable and traditional request for help will be used to deny existence of the knife and at the same time twist knife, jerk it around and pour salt on the wound? You will be attacked again and again. So with stalking its all relevant to the amount of suffering it causes. If it didn’t cause any damage you probably would just brush it off and go on with your life without making any adjustments.
A tactic is a conceptual action implemented as one or more specific tasks.
A weapon is a tool or instrument used in order to inflict damage or harm to enemies or other living beings, structures, or systems.
War is an organized, armed, and, often, a prolonged conflict that is carried on between states, nations, or other parties typified by extreme aggression, social disruption, and usually high mortality.
From these 3 definitions I’d say organized stalking is type of war on individual by using different tactics and weapons. This war is not kinetic in a sense that there are no visible weapons. War where success is measured not by amount of blood spilled, but by behavioral changes of the target towards the goal (whatever that might be). I’m not going to touch directed energy weapons here as I really do not know much about them and I’d equate them to invisible bullets and knives.
So if it’s a war declared on you where you don’t even know about it and no way to find about it. No rules, no conventions, any place, any time, completely out of the world tactics. It’s like a game that you’re forced to play and have to figure out the rules. Problem is – there are no rules. Initial rules are based on animal/human behavioral research to target instinctive responses to threat and as time goes modified according to your responses to those attacks. So in a sense you’re in charge of making the rules of the game. I know it’s double speak, but it appears to be like this. The danger of it is illusion of control. As your responses are simply yes or no answers on how to proceed further until soft and vulnerable spot is found to be exploited further.
If we review coping strategies the game tries to enforce us all negative coping strategies, so you’re left with no means to remove embedded invisible knives, stop bleeding and start healing. Most of information on the web is about describing the tactics and methods using sensational and fear mongering language, that helps only so much that at least gives some context. If you look at positive coping strategy of anticipation – it might look somewhat similar to sensitization, but they are very different. As with anticipation you accept coercion as reality and ready to deal with it when it hits you, thus minimizing time spent worrying about individual stressors themselves. Sensitization is about constant worrying about being ready and never being ready to face it. Social support strategy is only partial option as the story is usually quite unbelievable and disturbing where average person is preconditioned to write it off towards mental illness. So it’s important to pick and choose people who have capacity to accept at least part of the story. Meaning-focused coping could be quite dangerous since methods of stress inductions are usually unrelated towards perceived problem and are used only to create negative internal associations with you and yourself by attacking anything that you do at vulnerable times. So first impression could be made “if I avoid doing this or that” it might stop. It never stops and you keep limiting your activities and social interactions until you find yourself confined in your home like a prison. But understanding attack, method and the goal of attack helps to put everything in perspective, unmask true purpose and raise above it.
Being a pacifist by nature its hard to come up with any winning solution to this problem without at first focusing on spiritual and psychological healing, coping, defense and resilience. The only third party support that could be equated and possibly beneficial is institutions that deals with treatment of cult survivors and abusive groups. If we think of abusive community as a cult that tries to coerce and put undue influence on targeted individual you will find a lot of parallels. So first step is to reestablish and repair ties with community at large at the same time exposing rotten elements within it. Is it possible?
Things to consider Richards Heuer (The Psychology of Intelligence Analysis):
- We commonly solve problems by first forming a conclusion, and then using available evidence to support it. “[We tend to] favor a particular outcome or solution early on in the analytic process…long before we can objectively analyze the evidence and reach a conclusion.” (This is the cognitive bias known as confirmation bias.)
- We tend to perceive what we expect to perceive We tend to value information that is consistent with our views, and reject or overlook information that is not
- We can easily become wedded to a pre-existing plan, person’s reputation, etc., which precludes us from continuing to think critically about that plan, person, etc.
