The Longest Night: Four o' Clock

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 1, 2014, 4:12 AM



The ticking clock heralds the passing of time. 

Endless, monotonous minutes creep through the hallways of the mind and the labyrinth of the soul where men are left to face himself and his irresistible compulsions. These unspoken forces drive our deepest desires and fuel our most profound fears. We are powerless in front of them, just as we are powerless in the face of the march of time. 

Do you hear it?
They call for you in the midnight hour, whispering in your mind’s ears the most secret of secrets. 

Do you see it?
They appear to you from the corner of your eye, beckoning you to follow them down the rabbit hole.

The clock chimes. It’s time to listen up and follow suit. Will you come seek us in the darkened rooms filled with echoes of the past? Will you dance with us under the garish mercury moon? Will take our hands and join us through the Longest Night?

Welcome to the “Longest Night” Challenges where we explore men’s deepest fears and desires until he comes face to face with his most irrational and terrible fate. 

Sleeping Snake  Four O’clock: Ophidiophobia Run Away 

About 1/3 of humans are said to be ophidiophobic, that is to say, millions of people around the world are afraid of snakes. Ophidiophobia is thought to be a specific phobia that has a strong evolutionary and cultural component, making it a “learned fear” for many sufferers. However, as our interaction with the environment changed over the years, this learned response has metamorphosed into an irrational fear. Sufferers may range from simply do not like snakes or go into a panic and react violently towards even the thought or picture depictions of snakes. 
Notable Example: In the fictional world, the adventurer Indiana Jones was noted to be an ophidiophobe. For someone who has stared into the face of death on multiple occasions, Dr. Jones can always be heard to complain: “Snakes. Why is it always snakes?”

Print...bag....la   Three O'Clock: Kleptomania:bandit:  
   First described in 1816, this is one of the first “impulse control” disorders recognized by the modern medical field and the public. The person suffering from kleptomania has an irresistible compulsion to steal, but not for the financial or material gains. This usually results in criminal prosecution in spite of the fact that the stolen goods are usually kept as trophies or discarded by the affected individual. If the affected individual does not steal, he suffers from urges and intrusive thoughts, much like someone going through drug or alcohol withdrawal.

Notable example: Lizzie Andrew Borden, the notable “axe murderess” of Fall River, Massachusetts, was a known kleptomaniac. She was charged with shoplifting multiple times after she was acquitted from her murder charges in the late 1890’s.

:iconscarsbybullying: is holding a Write 50 Reason's Why You Love Yourself Challenge
Deadline: ??
More info: fav.me/d4i9ku9
* Quote:
"I challenge you to write 50 reasons why you love yourself. Number the entries and start them all with, "I love myself because..." The reasons can be about anything, but you should think about 50 reasons you love yourself after being bullied. Sometimes after such experiences, it's hard to think of why you love yourself, and that's why this challenge was created. It'll boost your self-esteem and make you realize what a beautiful person you really are."

Psychosis

Psychosis (from the Greek ψυχή "psyche", for mind/soul, and -ωσις "-osis", for abnormal condition) means abnormal condition of the mind, and is a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a "loss of contact with reality". People suffering from psychosis are described as psychotic. Psychosis is given to the more severe forms of psychiatric disorder, during which hallucinations and delusions and impaired insight may occur. [1]. Some professionals say that the term psychosis is not sufficient as some illnesses grouped under the term "psychosis" have nothing in common (Gelder, Mayou & Geddes 2005)

Hi! I have a little problem submitting in a while. When I try to submit normally I don't receive the message back which tells me that my works will be checked to be approved, and if I try to include it in the groups during the submission (since I'm admin I can do it) it says there is an error. It's strange.
