Orthodox Addiction

The following quote describes orthodox Addiction:

“A maladaptive pattern of substance use, leading to clinically significant impairment ment or distress, as manifest by three (or more) of the following, occurring at any time in the same 12-month period:

(1) tolerance, as defined by either of the following: (a) a need for markedly increased amounts of the substance to achieve intoxication or the desired effect (b) markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of the substance

(2) withdrawal, as manifested by either of the following: (a) the characteristic withdrawal syndrome for the substance (refer to Criteria A and B of the criteria sets for Withdrawal from the specific Substances) (b) the same (or a closely related) substance is taken to relieve or avoid withdrawal symptoms

(3) the substance is often taken in larger amounts or over a longer period than was intended

(4) there is a persistent desire or unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control substance use

(5) a great deal of time is spent in activities necessary to obtain the substance (e.g., visiting multiple doctors or driving long distances), use the substance (e.g., chain-smoking), or recover from its effects.

(6) important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced because of substance use

(7) the substance use is continued despite knowledge of having a persistent or recurrent physical or psychological problem that is likely to have been caused or exacerbated by the substance (e.g., current cocaine use despite recognition of cocaine-induced depression, or continued drinking despite recognition that an ulcer was made worse by alcohol consumption).”

When the disease of Addiction as described above is extended across behaviours, then the term stuck-addiction©️ becomes clearer.

Number 5 shows the illness of stuck-money and the unhappiness of millions of people doing a job they hate.

Number 6 shows the collapse of family, of social cohesion, of the high street caused by a digitally driven era-change that is amplifying the effects of a collective vulnerability to becoming addicted to alcohol, food, sex, the internet, money, gambling, work, fundamental radicalised religions that accuse, hate, divide and seek to monopolise Love for their own ends.

Number 7 describes the Einstein definition of insanity that is to keep doing the same thing expecting a different result.

This insanity now infects the Corporate and Political Offices of Governance across Earth.

Einstein also said that the mindset that creates a problem is not the mindset that can solve the that problem. A higher input is required.

New conversations are required, a new coming together of Opposites to catalyse the middle ground of new solutions.

Orthodox Addiction is a Primary Disease. Stuck-addiction©️ is the paradox that can release the space for new conversations to begin to happen, conversations that will in turn release innovations for Human beings that are beyond their wildest dreams.


From up in a room in the roof of a converted cow shed, like a member of the resistance in enemy occupied Europe in 1942, the tablet opens and it starts to transmit.

People who are tuned in to this broadcast frequency have been given this frequency by their HQ. What does HQ stand for? It stands for Highest Quotient.

I am one of the most intelligent people on the planet today with an IQ of 164. This is simply a fact. From this fact derives my determination to find out just what is actually occurring in my life as against what the system tells me is happening. By the word system, I mean my own inner nervous system as well as the outer system of cultural command and control.

My life from the age of my puberty has been lived in an inner battleground. Love has been my only shield and guide. My inner condition, my yin/yang being married, is now clear to me. My outer conditions I now see are embroiled in commotions that I can recognise from my inner experiences that have been resolved for me but are now being played out in the plurality.

So, my seeming choice is either to leave my outer world to itself and sit smugly in my inner cohesion, or to find a way to join in with the resistance movements that are being attacked by the old era that doesn’t accept that it has already gone.

The smoke and mirrors of control are seemingly all prevailing in the outer world. They are however only seemingly so, just as the inner conditions in my life eventually have had to give way to a direct experience of a Singular consummation, so too the outer environs of my being are universally connected. So, I have no choice, other than to turn seeming into seemly.

This connectivity is exposed by quantum physics and by the mystic’s verse, there is only One.

A glance at my blogs show that my work is indeed seemly, courteous, caring as to the positions of my seeming opposition even though their position is untenable within the pandemic of stuck-addiction©. So, this work is really only a transmission to those with the receivers to hear it. Like all true Sufi calls, it is a lullaby to those who are to stay asleep and a rallying call to those awakening.

The success of your inner venture is assured, fear not. The adherents of the old ways have already died, they just don’t realise it yet in their sleep. The adherents of the new ways have not quite seen themselves yet as more folks wake up.

How can I know this?

I simply look inside to see how the environs are becoming and are to become.

Of us and for us


It is of no practical use getting lost in conspiracy, piracy or any other view of rulers and their ruled. It is more probable that the major players on the world stage today are stuck in a mix of national, party and geopolitical financial drivers that renders their actions opaque to anybody’s crystal clear cultural analysis. What is needed is diagnosis.

Oil and gas production and their reserve levels have driven the history of the world throughout all of the last one hundred and twenty years.

We, the people, must look to ourselves first if we wish to understand our ruling elites. We are not to be trusted if the oil runs out. We would riot and kill each other, we would not stand in docile queues like starving Africans; hence our rulers are frightened.

Added to this fear of us, they are frightened for us.
The experiences of the last century have buckled the nation’s leaders’ consciences. Twenty million Russians killed in the Second World War, twenty million Russians killed by Stalin. Six million Jews killed by the Germans after a rearmament funded by mysterious backers. Hundreds of thousands, into many millions, killed on all sides in all the global wars. Millions of Chinese killed in their internal revolutions. Then the Cold War, proxy war, civil war, phoney war, terrorist war …. national leaders frightened for us yet unable to let us or each other into their secret knowledge of events and intentions. All of this, plus trying to contend with those anti-social forces who have always seen their only worth in criminally organised contraband, counterfeit, fraud, prostitution, illicit substances, violence, feeding and worshipping vice whilst craving their place in the pretence of virtue and public personas.

Clans, clubs, sects, secret societies, religions, prophecies, all claiming truth and members stretching back into the mists of time that gives them exclusive rights to vet and predict spiritual phenomena.

There is One unto whom all hearts are open and no secrets are hid.

Like a thief in the night, reality overturns the status quo.

Private suppliers of capital, of money, of credit and of insurance now straddle the global stage. Nation states are reduced to running their economies like franchised outlets of an overarching Monetary Brand that is underpinned by the IMF and the Central Banking System.

The political disconnect that now infects up to sixty percent of the first world electorate threatens the plans of even the most hardened global profiteer.

The word “constitution” links the individual, the corporate and the national body.

If the ruling function of the corporate and the political worlds are to have a chance of daring to get through the first two steps of being eventually 12 stepped back to sanity, then the electorates are going to have to help them, to encourage them.

Those folks in the disconnected sixty percent need to do the one thing that they don’t want to do – that is to reconnect

Like the anomaly in the Matrix who ran at the enemy and entered inside the morphing body to get free, so the Constitutional process has to be fully re-entered into, to move out of the collected personal logjams that account for the collective logjam.

Occupy movements and the Anonymous organisation simply harden the duality. Joining all the main parties or giving the membership subs as a donation if expelled under partisan rules, breaks through into a unified field.

Then the adoption of the sickness diagnosis as a portal of mutual international cooperation by the presently insane global political classes will free their national constitutions to focus on establishing new forms of finance, policing, utility provision and defence that are fit for a twenty first century purpose.

The present febrile atmosphere surrounding celebrity sex scandals does not help with the global diagnosis of stuck-addiction. For the many scores of victims involved in the sordid breakdown of trust and sex instinct boundaries, the effects of abuse are now national and international news.

For the many millions of people in Europe who are living under draconian financial measures as a direct result of abuse by bankers and financiers, abuse that is destroying psyches, marriages, families and dreams, their day in court to face their abusers is denied to them. Only Iceland managed to navigate through the window of healing offered by the last financial crash, led by their President, they sacked the government, rewrote the Constitution and sent the criminal bankers to prison.

The spectrum of stuck-addiction© for an individual ranges across the three instincts of security, social and sex. The addictions that materialise though different in impact and criminal potentiality are actually not in a hierarchy of “niceness”, they are all the same. Any money addict, any sex addict, any food addict, any gambling addict, any power/controlling addict etc etc although materially different in legality and apparent intensity, are in fact all linked by and in a common and singular diagnostic profile.

We, the people, have the power in a democracy, not just once every four or five years, but at every moment. If we don’t engage, the husbanding potential of political leadership will always breach it’s promise, broken and burnt by power. The silent majority may have to regularly demonstrate during any era change by simply turning out peacefully as happened during the silent march of over a million to mark the passing of the living cracked symbol that was Princess Diana. That core of silent connected sanity is present in all cultures ready to stand and witness. Now is the time to witness, to simply silently stand. Let’s say once a week on a Sunday at 1100 hours in front of your local government buildings. Stand for fifteen minutes then disperse. No agenda, no violence, just be. Either go, or imagine that you’re there, actually makes no difference, just be. The hysteria of current events and phoney narratives must dissipate if our global culture is to avoid another common meltdown.

There is a way of seeing ourselves differently that empowers our leaders to admit that they need our help to secure our common survival.

Heal your own inner animosity mindfully and diligently, then the animosity of other folks can be reflected lovingly back to source.

Radical treatment for the UK Constitution

Fear is the thread that connects the stuck-addiction© that infects the global body politic.

The displaced, dislocated partisan system that has come to dominate the policy landscape of the first world culture is no longer fit for purpose. Individual men and women who are whipped against their conscience after an attempt at honest debate is descriptive of an insane system that has brought the very fabric of our species to the point of destruction.

Is there a way forward?


Today, despite the party rules and given I do not want to be an activist or stand for election, I have joined all three main governing parties of the UK Parliament. It was not easy overcoming my mental programming. The action came from my heart not my head. What I am sharing with you is my inner debrief, my new found freedom and re-engagement with the Constitution of my land.

If five million people were to do likewise, even if only temporarily, there would be a freeing of Parliament from the insidious funding sickness of the merely affiliated, the super-rich, the international corporate sponsorship of the national party apparatus, and the frenzy of the lobby system.

This is what I have found arising in my inner world:

* A sudden and surprising sense of union and freedom – I am not divided and ruled
* A sense of reconnection with a party political system that has been redeployed
* A sense that the politicians are now arguing for me not against me to find the best way forward
* A sense that local politicians can now convince me of their policies for my local needs and that I can vote for the best local person without hypocrisy because I own the process
* A sense that I have become in myself the change that I want to see in the world
* A sense that I am licensing politicians like I license the BBC, to serve people with sane political programmes that attract them enough that they want to engage with them.

The leaders are frightened, that’s why they’re so prone to telling lies, they need our help. Their fear is toxic and they are so separated from their atrophied consciences that they do not see that they operate in a sickness that twists them around what they think that they have and might lose, mangled with what they think that they want and might be prevented from getting. All the while the Parliament takes a collective oath to a Theocracy that is only served in the instrument of a personal conscience that is fed with prayer and intuition – hence the broken mess that their words are in. They are not to blame, they need our help.

I know that there will be many more beneficial inner consequences.

The outer changes after the inner changes.

All this for 26p per day and if the parties expel me, I shall simply find the way to donate the equivalent annual fee to them all in subsequent donations anyway, to stay free.


PS. Since the writing of this entry, I have let two of my memberships lapse and retain my Labour Party membership. I still feel free as a consequence of the above experiment and still feel also that if people change themselves in their inner constitution first, then outer politics will eventually follow. AJ Dettman 3/11/2015.

PPS. I no longer hold a membership in any political party. I am a Union member who has opted out of the political levy. AJ Dettman September 2016.

PPPS. I resigned from the GMB recently. AJ Dettman 18/12/18

PPPPS Seems that by the May 23 2019 EU Elections, Conservative Lord Heseltine has embraced his version of my work by pledging to vote for the Liberal Democrats in the UK elections. AJ Dettman 22/05/19

PPPPPS By 18/11/20 in the midst of a global pandemic, much of the political apparatus of the G20 has been exposed as failing, hobbled by partisan paralysis, conscienceless and therefore rudderless. All of my correlations regarding the ill person and the ill system are now playing out at volume ten across the world stage. Where do we go from here? God knows ….

Peer Evaluation

There is a practice in many intellectual disciplines of necessary Peer Evaluation of new theory and development in the particular fields of classical and scientific investigation and experimentation.

This practice strengthens confidence in the building of efficacy and trust in knowledge as a growing body in whatever field is being approached.

Spiritual insight is more difficult to formulate by it’s recipient for such Peer Evaluation, especially when the insight is in response to pressing societal and cultural imbalances.

I am fortunate that Life has put me into a taxi for the last five years. Taxi drivers and hairdressers know how the World works, they listen to people across the full spectrum of a culture day in and day out.

My given spiritual insights have been polished, tested, knocked about into being congruent and coherent, vetted by the most demanding focus group known to Man, The General Public.

When these two Generals meet, General Faith (invisible) and General Public (visible), then they start to organise themselves into a Campaign Plan.
The Generals have been meeting in my taxi for the last five years.

As my diagnosis of the current global situation
has been tested on my passengers, I have been open to being challenged, to having my views altered, even destroyed.

I have met with nothing but concurrence.

This allows me to trust myself in the service of the two Generals and to now submit myself to their Campaign Plan.
This plan starts to involve my message being carried to a wider audience than can be safely squeezed into my taxi at any one time.

Through blogs, social media and local friends my expression is gaining a momentum. However, the global 12 Step Fellowships are here to stay and thankfully, need no help from me whatsoever.

When any status quo is challenged, it always replies with, “well, what would you do then?”, in order to justify itself.

When real change happens, it always writes itself anew when the right people, the right materials and the right time are concurrent.

If you are reading this, you are the right people.
Your life is prepared with the right materials.
Now is the right time.
