2019 January 24 - 2020 August 30


Dogen writes, "There is nothing, not a single moment nor a single dharma, that is not part of life.  There is nothing, not a single matter nor a single state of mind, that is not part of life."

-- Shobogenzo, by Dogen, translated by Nishijima, the essay Zenki (“All Functions”).  Dogen (1200-1253) was a Japanese Zen Master and the founder of Japanese Soto Zen.

The Introduction PDF To Mvo-p And The MVO: 2019 Thesis

If you want to dive in or are looking for another really nice pdf to review, the framework and noumena and sets of things in one concise place, start with my paper...

Introduction To Mvo-p And My MVO: 2019 Thesis.

Review this and return here, and read the html following.

Otherwise, set it aside, and continue as follows.  This pdf is also listed below, after the following html introduction to the theme, which has its own type of presentation.

My Theme Here -- Introduction

MVO stands for 'mental view and orientation'.  I've now deepened this to include what had originally been a key concept, and now is the overall framework and context, mvo-p, to point to what I'll term mvo-p psychiatry.  This type of mvo-p psychiatry would be dimension, vocabulary, logic, reason, realism, description, the participant, and explanation.  It would be the very thing that many of us bring to the table in our day to day lives.  It is my thesis that this sort of thing that I describe here should apply not only to the everyday, but to the psych unit setting, with ripple effects to the field of psychiatry itself.

Mvo-p psychiatry would be multi-disciplinary.  It would be a redefined framework for what is currently present: the present psych unit psychiatry theory/praxis is an inverted world, so narrow in its focus and scope, that tries to broaden its scale to include all of society where it has no firm basis.  Even where it does bring something to the table -- meds, as the rule -- when these are in fact apropos and appropriate, even when they are useful, they are set in an inadequate framework.

But I feel that psych unit mvo-p psychiatry -- and mvo-p psychiatry writ large -- could offer a significant contribution and play a key role in society.

I'm looking to transform the psych unit into a place of factoring-out, mediation, explanation, orientation and re-orientation, and resource -- and it could offer so much to society. It would incorporate philosophy, spirituality, religion, psychology, narrative, speculation on how we think and why, and act, mediation, the dialogic, and the everyday. It would incorporate excellent classes and one-on-one, including diagram-and-description by, with, and for the individual. The individual would be participant, and the merit of the various parties -- including the individual -- would be acknowledged and discussed. The real world would be 'on the table', as would reason and standpoint. No diagnosis and treatment would be rendered 'a-priori decisis', and meds would tend not to be used, but if used, be used within an 'all of the above' framework and praxis. Rights and a sense of and working-with the body-breath-mind-world-space, including mind and truth, would be paramount.

Mvo-psychiatry would involve philosophy; spirituality; psychology; narrative; speculation on how we think and why, and act; the social-relational; mediation; the dialogic; diagrams and description by, for, and with the individual; narrative; open dialogues; the everyday; the selective use of the medicinal; the resources and quotes and bibliographies so indicated; and organizational, agency, and state resources.  All per individual, with the individual (finally) recognized as a dimension entity, set with others in an arising space, and with description, standpoint, reason, and merit 'on the table'.

It would include consideration of the various states: mental states, emotive states, intentional states, and physical states; the basic factors: thought space, energy states, perception, speech and action, and patterns of speech and action; the resilience factors: joy, centeredness, dilemma or no dilemma, questions, perspectives, challenges, and helpfuls and usefuls; the domains of life: the mental, the existential, the social, the societal, the experiential, and the physical; and, within each of the domains of life, the grades of dilemma and no dilemma: crisis dilemma, significant dilemma, part dilemma, no dilemma, and no-dilemma.

Each of these things may apply to one degree or another in each of our lives: and the individual in a psych unit setting should be considered in such a dimension way also.  This would offer deeper insight into both the grades of dilemma or no dilemma, relevant factors, actualities, and realities -- and treatment and consideration of these -- and would offer just outcomes.  This is an 'all of the above' approach, directly speaking to the framework, material, and theory/praxis, in the psych unit.

Psych units currently do solve some problems.  I saw one interview with a man who said that he had been suicidal, was committed to a psych unit, and found the answers that satisfied him, and resolved his dilemma.  This is significant!  I feel that in other cases, the individual is not accurately or by any means completely or with dimension represented -- as an individual, with 'all of the above', including standpoint and explanation.  These types of situations would yield to better, dimension, in my view more realistic, theory/praxis, resulting in deeper insight and more just outcomes -- and an ability to resolve dilemma or no-dilemma in the various domains of life that I've indicated: the mental, the existential, the social (and the social-relational), the societal, the experiential, and the physical.

I feel that psych unit psychiatry should and needs to take up such a redefined framework -- and that many psych unit psychiatrists would take delight in this, as they might see what is from their standpoint proven by reason, the experiential, and the evidence-based.  This will take time, and I think study of my Thesis here might prove to be invaluable to the psych unit psychiatrist, the psych team, the corporations that run psych units, the individual, the family, friends, the state, and society.  That's the mvo-p approach.

My papers do point to the following as being relevant, in the psych unit, and sometimes in various ways in some types of life states: philosophy; spirituality and religion; psychology; speculation on how we think and why, and act; narrative; the social-relational; open dialogues and the dialogic; description and diagrams by, with, and for the individual; excellent classes with discussion; 1 on 1; the everyday; a dimension profile of the individual (indicated in my papers); a total-picture, contextual, and relevance-based description of the situation, from various standpoints; the selective use of the medicinal; and pointers to resources, both in print (from the above), and including state, agency, and organizational resources.

Accurate, complete, profile, and standpoint representation of the individual is key, in considering all of this.  So are the standpoints of various other roles in any given situation.  These wake-state in a relational manner, and this should be kept in mind, by the psych team and by all parties.

Again, this type of 'all of the above' mvo-p psychiatry would be dimension, vocabulary, logic, reason, realism, description, the participant, and explanation.  It would -- and this is part of my thesis -- in addition to deeper insight and just outcomes in the psych unit, lead to a redefined, more broad, and multi-disciplinary role in society -- to great benefit.  See some of my papers.

One of the fundamental problems in psychiatry (and this is exemplified in the psych unit) is that it sets aside and omits ‘all of the above’ -- and then replaces it with an interpretation, for each individual, only in terms of a diagnosis of absolute deficiency pointing to (so the theory goes) permanent neurobiogenetic malfunction.  But it sets aside all of ‘all of the above’.  A second fundamental problem is that it reifies a median of behavior, itself an abstract thing, as the reality, seeing deviation from the median as psychiatrically deficient; whereas the data are naturally variant (human thought, feeling, and experience -- the domains of life -- are vast and varied).  A median can be useful, but it is only an abstract singular way to interpret data, or to be a statistical referent, with some meaning.  But it is not the actual thought, feeling, and experience, and does not reflect the variance or distribution, and to set it forth as the actual ideal state with variance as deficient rather than explanatory is a key mistake.  A third fundamental problem is that it considers neither mind nor truth; and these should be set in the context of the domains of life.  These should be recognized in the individual, and various degrees and types of inquiry and perspective noted, and perhaps initiated.  We have access to these, our very selves, and this should be respected.  Then things can be taken up on merit.  A fourth fundamental problem is that it does not recognize the value of language, and of dialogue between the psychiatrist and the individual; and it pre-empts this with its diagnosis of absolute deficiency and its neurobiogenetic theory, ‘a-priori decisis’.

So what psychiatry, and especially psych unit psychiatry, needs to do is to replace its current disorders paradigm with an mvo-p paradigm and an ‘all of the above’ framework; and this framework includes the selective use of meds -- but with the actual world and human experience as the framework.  If that were what was encountered in a psych unit, or the psychiatrist’s office, or with the psych team and dialogue with family, friends, and colleagues, then the psych unit would be a different place.  Not a place of ‘to isolate’ and ‘to pin on alleged failure’ and ‘penalty’ and ‘a-priori decisis’, but a place of dimension, vocabulary, logic, reason, realism, description, the participant, and explanation.  Where reason and merit of the individual and others and merit of this or that are on the table.  Significantly, the domains of life (the mental, the existential, the social, the societal, the experiential, the physical) would be considered, and the grades of dilemma (crisis, significant, part, no, and no-) would be factored out for each of the domains of life.  And the rest of 'all of the above' -- thru to body-breath-mind-world-space.  This would lead I suspect to deeper paths for treatment, equable approaches, and just outcomes.  There are problems.  There are joys.  There is merit.  There are various degrees and types of orientation, disorientation, and re-orientation.  These should, along with the many things, be acknowledged and more profoundly dealt with.

This page lists a few sets of papers that I've written recently.  The individual in society may want to take note.  The individual in the psych system may be able to bring his or her own perspective to the table, and should subject these papers to scrutiny, reason, and the experiential: what holds true.  The psych unit psychiatrist or psych team may also glean insight, about ways that a redefined framework for psych unit psychiatry could offer so much -- and where current challenges lie.

The totality of the papers is important.

My papers are a geometry of reasoning points and meaning; they are etched logic and dimension; they are k-lines and trans-frames; they reflect the observational-experiential; they are a result of my influences, and of my Zen Buddhist practice; they are the result of doing not-doing (wei-wu-wei); and they are the result of the non-intentional.

With anyone, these papers should be assessed on their merits, and placed within the context of individual and societal experience.

This work is primarily for the field, psych unit psychiatry.  A redefined framework would yield a field that is so dynamic, fluid, and structured -- and dimension.  Thus, I feel it is worth study and serious attention by the psych unit psychiatrist and medical corporations that run psych units.  It's also of significant potential value to the State -- and how it structures the idea 'psych unit mvo-p psychiatry'.

This is work that is from my observational/experiential/theoretical -- and applied in my own life.  It results from a background of physics (undergrad major), object-oriented programming and ideas (primarily with Objective-C using the OpenStep APIs, and the book "Object Lessons" by Tom Love), the work of Edward Tufte (including "Envisioning Information", "The Visual Display Of Quantitative Evidence", and "Beautiful Evidence"), the work of Marvin Minsky ("The Society Of Mind" and "The Emotion Machine"), and a practice of Zen Buddhism (primarily Rinzai, with some reference to Dogen, and significant reference to Nagarjuna; see references below), and embedded in this my experience in the psych unit system as a patient (and the psych team, including the psych unit psychiatrist, really should treat their patients as individuals and clients; and informed consumers).  I have been through multiple psych unit commitments -- and this has led to direct experience and etched observation, set in a Zen Buddhist context, with significant other influences, and has been a key.  It, along with my Zen practice and my other influences, has led to my standpoint.

I am not a professional in the field of psychology or psychiatry: I am making recommendations for those professions, that psychiatry shift to what I call an mvo-p standpoint, and that psychology become aware of it -- I am making these recommendations from the standpoint of someone with the above background (the previous paragraph), and experiential-observational and potential insight, expressed in various ways.  If there is anything of merit, then I encourage and welcome others such as the individual, the family, society, and the state to consider this material.  It should always be gauged on merit, actuality, and just what we might consider this real world.

Participation And Dialogue

I'd like to get a dialogue going in society -- including the everyday yet significant individual, the philosophical, the religious, students, physicists, corporate offices, foundations, government and civic leaders, and those already in the mental well-being space -- about the theory/praxis of psych unit psychiatry and psychiatry writ large -- and a discussion about orientation and meaning.  Contact me if you consider the material here and are interested in participating, to start such a dialogue.

Realism, Dedication, And Compassion

It is such a delight to work on and contribute this material.  It is done out of realism, dedication, and compassion.

This second set is more for the individual and interested psych team, family, friends, colleagues, and so forth.  It is meant to be material to work with, in several ways, and touches on or would simply augment so much that is available, in other resources: philosophy; spirituality; psychology; speculation on how we think and why, and act, etc, that one could look into.  It's done in the spirit of inquiry.

The Fourth Set

This fourth set is some models of or questions about psychosis.  I think the domain is more tractable than psych unit psychiatrists give it: and they don't ever discuss say Minsky's 'mental representations of the external world, and relevant mental events' (from his book "The Emotion Machine, p. 49).  What are these, how do we represent or talk about them, and how do they interconnect?  Are there grades to various types of thought, and thought-mental-physical-world?  Etc.  This section is for the layperson and for the psych professional.

The following is a background note with respect to my digital computing technology resume.  It provides an example of my type of activity and action and study -- and activation of various influences and the practice of Zen.  I hope that it reflects my spirit -- and the type of standpoint I've tried to bring to the papers and resources here.
