Ask yourself this question. Who are you? Of course the answer is ‘it depends.’ Psychologically, socially, mentally, we have a multi-dimensional persona. Our characters, habits, trials and tribulations of life defines us. based on Gestalt, All the sum of its parts, all the whole is us.

Let’s take for example. Here’s a few descriptions:

‘I am a man.’ ‘I believe cause and effect.’ ‘I am trustworthy, honest and reliable.’ ‘People likes me.’ ‘I have a group of good friends and they enjoy my company.’

Someone comes along and totally destroys that. Ok, fine, here’s another one.

‘There are 24 hours in a day.’ ‘I live in a democratic country, where law and order works.’ ‘anyone above the age of 65 years old is a senior person, really old.’ ‘Students are students because they wear uniforms.’ ‘yes, is yes and no is a no.’

Someone comes along and wipe that clean. Think of some more concepts that defines you, things that you believe in, have faith over, read before, holds true to… ‘delete’ all of that

Get the mental destruction? Similar to a psychological nuclear detonation. Can you imagine who will be capable of doing such a thing to you, to all your mental faculties and constructs? Your frame of mind, the persona, what you stand for, what you believe in… all threatened with a nuclear annihilation. All blown away. It shakes the very ground you walked on, leaves you feeling dizzy, unable to define the dizziness. you know you are dizzy but you cannot describe dizzy. Even the concept of dizzy eludes you.

Who would do such a cruel thing to have happen to you. it is worse than terrorism. At the least, ‘terrorism’ leaves you ‘terrorized’. What I am talking here is what you think you know about ‘terrorized’ are also wipe out. You whole being, the past, present and future. ALL GONE.

Can you stop that person from doing such atrocities to you? Better still can you prevent that from happening? Prevent this person from so skillfully sneak into your psyche and plant this destruction, all under your nose? Better yet, with you watching all the time.

What will you be left with? If your brain gets ‘nuked’ like this, where do you start reconstruction? What will be left behind after this random acts of Armageddon? Can you feel that despair, helplessness, terror, the inability to stop it from happening? you know it’ll happen, and yet you’re helpless in stopping this perpetrator, in fact, you are so helpless, you cannot even disapprove it! you cannot say ‘No! this is not right!’ The gleaming look in the perpetrator’s eye tells you that it can be done, you’ll have the grandstand view of the entire destruction.

Who is this powerful, frightening person you can never, ever fight against, even with your best ability?

This person is you. Get introduced to the scariest person in YOUR world.
