Vectors of the soul I: a
In my paper
I explored how
the abuse of a child, by a narcissistic parent (or other
significant attachment figure) effects the relationship
of an abused (grown) individual with God. This
three-parts theatre investigates the mechanics of
narcissistic abuse in the Church and its consequences
for a soul.
A new born
human being : red - a real Self to be formed ; black - a potential for "flipside"
or fake self
beauty & secure attachment -
development of real Self
pain & abuse - shrinkage of real Self & growing "flipside"
'fake self overthrew real Self.
Last scene: an
abused person has practically no means of relating
to the other, God, or human, in a normal way. His real
Self is overtaken by a phantom, his flipside.
