    The vast majority of chronic and persistent pain is not the physical expression of our devastating emotional suffering/turmoil (somatization)......... BUT a sophisticated strategie driven by our brain in order to save us of such devastating emotional suffering.

    Do you agree ?

    This is what I've been contemplating as well. Here's the kicker....If in fact the second statement is correct, it begs a certain question. See, implicit in that statement is the unavoidable truth, that pain has to be expressed one way or the other (mental or physical).
    Apparently, since the pain is physical for most of us, our brains have determined that to be preferable to what it believes would cause deep mental pain, and so it takes the measures to lock them safely away in our unconscious minds.
    See, this is why we need to develop The System to set us free! Blood Moon is helping brainstorm it as well, so I am feeling a bit more confident now!
