Neurolinguistic Programming or NLP has its roots in the unorthodox therapy of Milton Erickson. Erickson -- a man profoundly aware of the paradoxes of self-perception as it crosses linguistic, behavioural, and emotional vectors -- founded a therapy that is now used to subliminally train the traditional economic and new cybermercantile classes. You can work harder, earn more money, be 'on' all the time, by training your unconscious in late-capitalist motivational therapy. To the adjective-compliment 'well-adjusted,' we might posit the question, 'to what?' This is the zany modern body, durable, resilient, and most importantly, elastic. Whatever new conditions are thrown at the 'well-adjusted' worker, he/she is expected to stretch, compensate, mimic, adapt, and then slide comfortably back to a normal psychological state, having exhausted much of his/her energy on stabilising the complex psychosocial feedback loop. The modern late capitalist emblem/logo/™ is the rubber band, a two way dildo, a gimp suit.
Well-balanced psychologisme meets theology à la fitness first was once presented to me on the side of a passing bus in banner form: BE YOURSELF ONLY BETTER. This, I might add, happens to be a profoundly succinct treatise on contemporary society, if I'm right in thinking that the two catch words of the post/modern age are Authenticity and Self-Improvement; why the self-help section of the bookstore is one of the best and certainly most interesting indicators of the state of the general soul.
Rubber bands are so organic.
