Delusional Disorder Discussion

Shaun Burns Visit 2 - March 12, 2021

my notes below video

My concern is that part of what is going on here (with this diagnosis) is an effort to discredit the things I'm saying (by making me seem like an unreliable narrator).

1:40 Here my goal is to make sure that Dr Burns and I have a common understanding of what his professional ethical obligations are with regards to being truthful with me, the patient (and client).

What I'm referring to is a document called the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, specifically, under general principles, Principle B: Fidelity and Responsibility and Principle C: Integrity.

Under section B, the ethics code states "Psychologists uphold professional standards of conduct, clarify their professional roles and obligations, accept appropriate responsibility for their behavior, and seek to manage conflicts of interest that could lead to exploitation or harm." Under section C the ethics code states "Psychologists seek to promote accuracy, honesty, and truthfulness in the science, teaching, and practice of psychology. In these activities psychologists do not steal, cheat or engage in fraud, subterfuge, or intentional misrepresentation of fact. Psychologists strive to keep their promises and to avoid unwise or unclear commitments. In situations in which deception may be ethically justifiable to maximize benefits and minimize harm, psychologists have a serious obligation to consider the need for, the possible consequences of, and their responsibility to correct any resulting mistrust or other harmful effects that arise from the use of such techniques."

Dr Burns characterizes the intent of Section C as "aspirational." I've heard this word applied to the Bill of Rights in the past, as well. It seems like a way to water down law and ethics, to refer to these principals as "aspirational" - almost as if it's not mandatory.

3:14 Dr Burns specifically states "I don't have any reason to be deceitful." Based on what I know about my situation, and the relationship to the medical field, I believe this is a lie.

8:43 addressing the covert, wirelessly operated, medical body area network and my actual concerns about it which are less immediately about being tracked and much more about being harmed with radiation or directed energy weapons

11:28 "I want to defend my assertions with evidence because that's how they're stronger" - I mean that if and when someone can show me how something I'm saying can't be true, I would adjust my ideas according to the new evidence. That's how a dialectic or evidence and logic based discussion can make a theory stronger. Generally what I experience is something very different - either there is no dialectic or discussion or examination of evidence, just an expert opinion given based on "is this likely" - or other types of deflecting behaviors such as insisting on looking at every single piece of evidence in isolation, or arguing that the evidence I am presenting is not valid evidence.

14:40 This is also an important point, with regards to medical treatment, because if these doctors really had no contact with me, or my situation, then it might be reasonable to think that my specific complaints don't merit immediate or special concern. However, if I am correct that these doctors do know who I am, and that they do know I've had a special role, and if they do know that my claims are going to be of concern to certain powerful people, then they would take my complaints far more seriously and evaluate the risks I'm facing quite a bit differently.

17:00 making the point that Freemasonry is not only deceptive about its full purpose and history, but that it is exceedingly difficult to find any kind of realistic history or critical studies around Freemasonry. It appears to me that Freemasons have enjoyed an exceptionally protected status in the United States with regards to scrutiny of their actions and intent - that it is so protected that no academically rigorous criticism of Freemasonry is even printed.

18:36 I don't mention this here but the trafficking and assassination system around my family is alluded to in city and state seals which usually invoke images of death (a sickle, a weapon, a hole) and harvest (grain, fruit, fish). I believe our situation is linked to the idea of the Seal of Solomon and to finance and that's why it's often represented with a pentagram or hexagram. But it is also linked to medicine, thus the use of caduceus which is itself linked to both finance and medicine.

19:15 "People are being harmed, I'm being harmed, my family is being harmed - I've been saying this for years - and it's getting worse"

Delusional disorder as a diagnosis is used to discredit my valid claims of unlawful abuse and exploitation.

20:35 I think that Dr Burns here is again not being honest in terms of his saying "this is way above my pay grade" because in the previous visit he said at one point "I'll give you the benefit of the doubt" and then at the end of the visit he indicated he needed to consult with someone before deciding what he thought about the accuracy of the diagnosis.

21:37 Dr Burns says "I think a similar example is if someone says they've been abducted by aliens - I can't disprove that" - an alien abduction however would challenge normal understanding of the laws of physics (where did the aliens come from and how did they physically get here?) - I'm not making this kind of claim.
