The audio of each segment will…

Hi, This is a short B-Side that includes a few thoughts on the mechanics of negations. Outline: We all want to be accepted.

Hi, Today's episode of InForm:Podcast is all about negations, which are a parapraxis where a person says something, but the "negative image" of what they are saying is in fact the (repressed?) truth.

On today's episode of Inform: Podcast I recap the ideas that... Repression causes neurosis, not the other way around.

This week I continue to talk about being generative and being productive. The argument this episode makes is that if we overdo "bing productive" then we use up our stored up Generative capacity, and eventually we will be forced to rest and allow the Generative energy to get stored up again. Till next time: Make glorious mistakes!…
