English: Thea; Tea.
DD: Bromium, Fluor.
The basic tension is between controlled behaviour and instinctual outbursts of the subconscious. They fear the human mind, what people can do when they get out of control, in a rage. This can happen when they have experienced such violence from people they knew were normally gentle, for instance a father who becomes violent after drinking alcohol. They do not understand that violence and consequently start thinking they might do something similar. It is not that they want to do such a thing, or even have any reason to think they might do it in the future. It is not grounded. They start to imagine the worst one can do, killing innocent children and even worse one’s own children or grandchildren. That is the symptom that is known for Thea.
Their solution is to try to control the mind with their thinking. They become rational, clear in their mind, alert for intrusions from the subconsciousness but it does not help as they do not have a clue where and when it might happen, how it works. They have misunderstood the logic of the subconscious yet.
