Withdrawal of the individual: autism
Autism is a very appropriate word for Helium. They don’t feel like entering this world. They prefer to stay in themselves to experience their own being. They are not interested in finding out about values and meaning in life. They don’t feel any affinity with those matters, they simply live. They have gone through the process of incarnation, they accept they are here and they don’t doubt that fact. But they don’t want to be involved in the why and wherefores of their existence.
Their behaviour makes is very difficult to understand for other people. You can’t get a grip on them, as if they are slipping away through your fingers each time you try and establish contact. This can be seen in autistic children. they won’t let you come near. You can do what you like with them, they simply won’t react. They remain locked up inside themselves, unapproachable and distant.
They react in a typically psychotic manner. Their sense of reality has not been developed and they don’t know who they are. But the psychosis is not externalised, they don’t interact with the outside world. It is as if they only act from within themselves.
Dementia Hospitalisation syndrome
This withdrawal may also take place at a later age. This may turn into something that looks like dementia. The chronic hospitalisation syndrome is a pattern that is linked to this. It can be seen particularly in psychiatric patients who, through continuous use of anti psychotic and anti-depressive medicines, may eventually become complete ‘zombies’, or ‘vegetables’, they have no conscious life of their own anymore.
Unborn Rest: foetus
This is also the stage of the foetus who doesn’t have to do anything. he floats around in the amniotic fluid, nice and warm. He can let his urine and stools go without any worries or efforts, no effort to eat, drink or breathe either.
Delusions: being a king or an eagle.
Mood: light, fast, lovely, heavenly, unity, calm, stable, content, peaceful, warm, no effort, nice, universal happiness, happy, contemplative, gloomy.
Contact: <- company; -> being alone on top of a mountain.
Vertigo, lightheaded, as if floating.
Lying down or crawling bodily along the floor. They like to keep their body in touch with the earth, or they climb up tables and chairs like a snake.
High pitched voice, like Donald Duck.
