Welcome to Psychologized
irst of all, I would like to
welcome you to our new e-magazine. Everyone in this magazine is a volunteer and I would like also to thank them for their help and their support. The most important thing is that these people are very creative and very positive. I feel really lucky for having them in my team.
But who am I? I can be everyone . Maybe I am your neighbour ... maybe your brother... maybe I am your friend... maybe I am your thoughts printed on this article.
It is not my idiosyncracy to be sarcastic or ironic, but my diagnosis would be that the magic of Psychology is on things that we don't know. Our gnomon has to be a metron between the strategic that we use to find our philanthropic scopes.
In an epoch characterized by war, money, antagonism , anxiety and polymorphous realities, our way of thinking needs to be more orthologic sentimental. But all these, should not metamorphose us into agoraphobic or hyper-consumer personalities, that just consume feelings or relations like they are snacks. Maybe... this is why many dramatic movies of zombies producted this epoch. But this is not science fiction. On this era, the zombies already exist. Its like a pandemic. I can see them everywhere... They do not have feelings, they are just in rush... They need to rush to finish school, rush to finish university, rush to find a job, rush to buy a car, rush to buy a house, rush to buy a wife... Athletes, academics, politicians, actors , proffesors, students, retirees...everyone among the pandemic called "pleasure". There are not feelings of happiness , or feelings of love, everything happens for the "pleasure".
It reminds me the reverse theory of Epicurus , about "Pleasure as absence of suffering". This Greek philosopher who lived about 2400 years before (341 b.C.), believed that pleasure is the most important thing in life. But, in his didactic theory , if a person wants to feel the pleasure, needs to reduce his desires and not consume more and more like everyone on this era.
I apologize for having tyranized you with my Hellenic phraseology. In my epilogue I have just a rhetoric question for you:
" Imagine all the goals of your life. All goals that you achieved. All goals that you want to achieve. It doesn't matter if you succeded or not, it doesn't matter if you felt the pleasure when you succeded. Now, just think about all the stressful hours that you spent to achieve these goals. This is your life. I bet that you already spent 80% of your stressfull life, for 20% pleasure. But.. if these goals, these feelings of pleasure, were feelings of trully happiness, why you forget to be happy? Maybe because these goals that you press yourself to achieve, do not deserve it. Maybe you have to think better what makes you happy... Maybe you have to understand that you are already happy, do not let pleasures command your life. Maybe one day I will see you arround and I will be happy to see a human being with feelings... these zombies are so boring!" -
