How Addictions, Narcissism, Dissociation, Paranoia & Delusions occur.
Trauma- Peter Levine, author of “Waking the Tiger-Healing Trauma” When referring to the difference in how animals and humans react to trauma, Levine states:
“The involuntary and instinctual portions of the human brain and nervous system are virtually identical to those of other mammals and even reptiles…… Nature has developed the immobility response fore two good reasons. One, it serves as a last-ditch survival strategy. Secondly, in freezing, the animal and human enters an altered state and feels no pain. Most modern cultures tend to judge this instinctive surrender as weakness which has caused a deep human fear of immobility. We avoid it because it is a state very similar to death. When confronted with a life-threatening situation, our rational brains become confused and override our instinctive impulses.”
