15. Settings

<p>Most of the items on the Settings page are doorways to other screens, where you make the actual changes. When you’re finished inspecting or changing the preference settings, you can return to the main Settings screen by tapping the Settings button in the upper-left corner—or just pressing the Home button.</p><p>In this book, you can read about the iPhone’s preference settings in the appropriate spots—wherever they’re relevant. But so you’ll also have it all in one place, here’s an item-by-item walkthrough of the Settings application.</p><p>Airplane Mode</p><p>As you’re probably aware, you’re not allowed to use mobiles on aeroplanes.</p><p>According to legend (if not science), a mobile’s radio can interfere with a plane’s navigation equipment.</p><p>But the iPhone does a lot more than make calls. Are you supposed to deprive yourself of all the music, videos, movies, and email that you could be using in flight, just because mobiles are forbidden?</p><p>Nope. Just turn on Airplane mode by tapping the Off button at the top of the Settings list (so the orange On button appears). Now it’s safe (and permitted) to use the iPhone in flight—at least after takeoff, when you hear the announcement about “approved electronics”—because the mobile and</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362691-iphone-uk-the-missing-manual-the-missing-manual">See more</a>

14. Trauma

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p>The night is darkening round me<br>The wild winds coldly blow<br>But a tyrant spell has bound me<br>And I cannot cannot go<br>The giant trees are bending<br>Their bare boughs weighed with snow<br>And the storm is fast descending<br>And yet I cannot go<br>Clouds beyond clouds above me<br>Wastes beyond wastes below<br>But nothing drear can move me<br>I will not cannot go</p><p>Emily Bronte (1996)</p><p>So far we have spoken of the <i>liquifiers </i>in the gelatinous substance, without any reference to the outer environment. Is there any reason for the presence of the liquifiers? My observation is that the <i>liquifiers </i>are always intensely active in people who have suffered severe traumata. Because the <i>liquifiers </i>are experienced outwardly as greed, envy, and jealousy, people are frequently unsympathetic to those who have suffered traumas in childhood. Their experience of the person is someone who is being hostile and resentful towards them. The extent to which people react to this hostility depends on the extent to which they are themselves under the sway of a “narcissistic constellation”. As we saw in Chapter 9, these people continue to be punished by society throughout their lives. The punitive god is embodied in the society of people surrounding the traumatized individual. It is well known, for instance, that many criminals have had severely traumatized childhoods. A retributive theory of justice demands that revenge be taken against the criminal; a utilitarian theory of justice requires that society be protected against the dangers of criminal attack without demanding retribution. The latter theory and, indeed, policy of justice is in tune with our understanding of the origins of criniinality.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/296538-a-pattern-of-madness">See more</a>

CHAPTER FOUR: The legacy of Wilfred Bion

Slice ePub May 24, 2014
<p>“Meaning is revealed by the pattern formed and the light thus trapped-not by the structure, the carved work itself”</p><p>(Bion, 1991, Book I)</p><p>Over the past forty years, Bion's work has influenced a number of thinkers-practitioners and non-practitioners alike-who are concerned with art and creativity. Since this book was first compiled, Bion studies have flourished, and there are now available a wealth of books and articles in English and other languages. For example: Symington &amp; Symington (1996); Sandler (2005); Bleandonu (1994). Jacobus (2005) is one of the few who have explored the connection between Bion's ideas and philosophical aesthetics. This chapter will look at Bion's development of Freud's and Klein's metapsychology and the impact of his ideas on current aesthetic debate, largely developed through the work of Donald Meltzer and his step-daughter, Meg Harris Williams.</p><p>The evolution of Bion's work begins with his early papers on schizophrenia in the 1950s, which were the basis of the elaboration of a more sophisticated “theory of thinking”, developed in 1962. His earlier writings (pre-1970) attempt to place psychoanalysis on a more “scientific” footing, using various analogies mainly taken from mathematics, geometry, biology, physics, and chemistry. These methods of exposition, however, largely fell short of Bion's expectations, and in his pursuit of a new universe of discourse we see him gradually shifting away from the scientific to the more aesthetic and mystical (religious) vertices, drawing upon an impressive array of philosophers, poets, and mystics, including Sophocles, Plato, Meister Eckhart, Kant, Shakespeare, Milton, and Keats.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/232188-psychoanalytic-aesthetics-an-introduction-to-the-british-school">See more</a>
