For those that don’t know, trepanation is the process of having a hole drilled in your head (“this reminds me of that time you tried to drill a hole in your head” “That would’ve worked if you hadn’t stopped me…”).
Trepanation, by a single act, restores the brainbloodvolume (“BBV”) to the level of childhood, the level at which the ego was originally installed. This benefits everyone, but most importantly the psychotic, whose de-conditioned ego can regain its original strength supported by a childhood-level cushion of blood. The word communication centers are re-floated in blood, and there is therefore less strain on the ego/constriction mechanism, which no longer needs to be permanently deployed in order to maintain self-control. Both the degree and extent of repression can therefore be reduced. The lifting of this burden is often felt as increased energy. The ego, now with more free time, can be used for the purposes of concentration, i.e. the channeling of blood into the capillaries of the brain required to be in action. This is a benefit to everyone, no matter however well adapted they may be, to their stasis of repression.
