Social exclusion and addiction
The central mechanism in addiction is a need for low frequency energy sources and a lack of opportunity to obtain external low frequency energy from either social or intimate contact with other people or activities which act as a stimulus to the left hemisphere of the brain enabling it to reduce the frequency levels in the energy it is receiving from the right hemisphere. Both need to be directly relative to someone's individual pathway of emotional and cognitive development and be positive, pleasant and reaffirming.
Both are necessary to maintain energy levels of a sufficiently low frequency to be within the individual frequency range for the individual. In times of stress or even increased stress or distress people need an external source of low frequency energy and they often reach out for low frequency energy sources which are delivered by artificial means - food, alcohol, nicotine and drugs.
Obtaining low frequency energy sources from such things as food, alcohol and drugs is generally guaranteed as they all provide energy in some way which is in some way ingested by the body through digestion, inhalation and injection. This introduces low frequency energy sources into the body which gives feelings of relief, pleasure or by numbing sensations and desensitizing the perception of stress.
People can also become addicted to various activities which can either alter perception or change the way the brain functions.
Generally an addiction occurs when someone relies on artificial means of lowering the frequency levels in the energy they use as a primary means of achieving this result.
Social exclusion and mental illness
The process of social exclusion can also create and develop mental illness due to the left hemisphere of the brain being able to process energy and reduce its frequency to one which is compatible with the individual frequency of the person affected. This alters the relationship between the two cerebral hemispheres of the brain which can often be a common factor in mental illness.
Furthermore social exclusion can slow or even reverse the natural recovery process of mental illness and lead to complications in recovery. Often whether or not someone is able to recover completely from the process of social exclusion is determined by how much a mental illness has been able to develop in the stressful circumstances of the social exclusion process. There is a point where both processes have progressed far enough that a complete recovery is not possible and the person will remain affected to some degree for the rest of their lives.
The relationship between social exclusion and mental illness is not a straightforward or simple cause and effect process and this should not be interpreted as such here. In some cases a mental illness and social exclusion can also work against one another and if anything the discovery of Stella Baker and the work undertaken by Qultura should not be seen as any sort of solution but a sign that further research is necessary before we begin to properly understand the relationship between social exclusion and mental illness.
However through her work in developing Qultura Stella Baker has discovered that creative activities and social interaction have a beneficial and positive effect not just on the recovery from social exclusion but also mental illness but can also in some cases accelerate it. By how much depends on the individual and how much such strategies are compatible both with the individual pathway of emotional and cognitive development and also the individual frequency of energy which is relative to that person.
The physical effects of social exclusion
The inability of the left hemisphere of the brain to effectively process incoming energy down to a lower frequency means that the body is forced to function on energy which is of a higher frequency than the individual frequency range specific to that person. This can disrupt or even disable the processes of dealing with stress within the body itself. This can in turn trigger genetic predispositions to serious illnesses such as heart disease, strokes, cancer and other fatal diseases which results eventually in premature death.
