Fwd: Giving Quantum Healers a bad name: Clinicide
- A cautionary tale for anthroposophical medicine, perhaps? --- Tom

First look at the official website of Serbian holistic doctor and
Quantum Healer, Dr. Dragan Dabic with many photographs of him at work
healing and teaching:
"Healing from Within: The Ever Increasing Need for Alternative
Viewpoints in the Modern World."
"Dr. Dragan "David" Dabic was born some six decades ago in a small
Serbian village of Kovaci, near Kraljevo. As a young boy he liked to
explore nearby forests and mountains, spending a lot of time on
Kopaonik mountain where he tended to pick the omnipresent, natural and
potent medicinal herbs that grew at those green pastures."
Here is his business website, "Human Quantum Energy: David Well-Being
Program," 99% in the Serbian language, but since their alphabet is
Latin, you can decipher the big medical and holistic buzz words. Plus
there are photos of all the crystal gadgets and bioenergy sources of

When saving lives morphs into torture and killing
By Robert Kaplan
Sydney Morning Herald
The arrest of the psychiatrist Radovan Karadzic raises a profound
question: was Karadzic merely a doctor who ran a genocide, or did his
profession as a doctor play a significant part in his genocidal role?
The evidence points incontrovertibly to the latter: Karadzic practised
as a psychiatrist at Kosovo Hospital until he became the president of
the Republika Srpska in 1992, taking some of his nurses and doctors
with him; he used his training to plan terror tactics for ethnic
cleansing; he never renounced his profession.
As a genocidal murderer, Karadzic is an extreme but not uncommon
example of clinicide, the phenomenon of doctors who kill. Clinicide
includes serial killing, treatment killing and political killing.
Doctors murder more than any other professional group; they kill their
partners, relatives, patients or victims in service of the state or an
ideology. It is likely that the power over life or death attracts them
to the profession in the first place. Dr Jean-Paul Marat, the
bloodthirsty political serial killer behind the French Revolution, was
a dermatological and ophthalmic specialist. He was followed by Turkish
doctors who organised the Armenian genocide, Nazi doctors who ran
death camps and Japanese doctors who carried out biological warfare.
Since 1945, the role of doctors in terrorism, torture, genocide and
abuse of prisoners is a growth industry.
From communist Eastern Europe to rightist regimes in South America,
the list is extensive; each new phase of insurrection, state
repression or clash with opposing forces invariably produces doctors
engaged in serious human rights abuses. Examples include Papa Doc
Duvalier of Haiti, Dr Hastings Banda of Malawi, Dr Wouter Basson of
South Africa and, cult-status notwithstanding, Dr Che Guevara.
Karadzic's trajectory shows uncanny resonances with that of Hitler.
Both came from a rural background to spend their early youth in
multi-ethnic cosmopolitan surroundings, Hitler in Vienna, Karadzic in
Sarajevo. Like Hitler, Karadzic suffered from psychosomatic illness.
During his early years in Vienna, Hitler mixed with people of all
backgrounds, including Jews, his murderous racism coming to the fore
only in 1919. Hitler regarded himself as an artist. While able to
qualify as a psychiatrist, Karadzic had a similar grandiose and
romantic vision of himself, despite evidence that he was never more
than an indifferent poet.
If nothing else, Karadzic shows that clinicide, from the killing
fields of Srebrenica to the growing epidemic of geriatric murder in
nursing homes, can no longer be ignored.
Robert Kaplan is a forensic psychiatrist at the Graduate School of
Medicine, Wollongong University. His book "Medical Murder: An Analysis
Of The Disturbing Phenomenon Of Doctors Who Kill" is due for
publication in February.

In this [second] kind of initiation the disciple's soul was drawn out of his inner being, whereby he could participate in the events of the cosmos and raise himself to the soul-spiritual essence permeating the universe. His experience differed markedly from ordinary contemplation of nature because he felt he lived within the very soul of the universe. In not a bad but a good sense, he was beside himself. He was, though one hesitates to use this word because it has taken on an unpleasant connotation, in ecstasy. Upon achieving this union with the cosmos he could say to himself that through living in the universe and through experiencing its most intimate soul-spiritual forces, he had come to realize that everywhere the final goal of the cosmos is the creation of man. Did man not exist, the whole creation could not fulfill its end, because he was the meaning of the cosmos.
Carol, it is not possible to remove the Etheric Body from the physical body without death occurring immediately. Therefore, for this reason alone the second type of ancient mystery stream concerns the Astral Body. Consider all that the lecture: The Work of the Angels in Man's Astral Body gives as a point of further reference for what now takes place in the state of dreamless sleep. Dream sleep involves the etheric body and its close union with the physical body.
During sleeping we interact with the spiritual worlds when the astral-ego organization leaves the etheric-physical organization and engages its spiritual communion in the astral and higher devachanic realms. The ego, as such in our present development, is a silent witness to the work of the astral body in receiving the impressions of the angelic hierarchies, which are then carried down into the etheric body. Dreaming is an etheric activity conducted in middle devachan by the astral body, in which our past lives are traveled through and mixed in with the recent physical body experiences of the present life. Chaos is the general order of the dream experience, which is countered by the objectively ordered pictures of the waking conscious (relative) experience. Waking up from a dream is felt entirely in the etheric body as a present-moment experience of consciousness. As soon as the outer world is detected this consciousness sinks down into the subconscious and the dream is forgotten in favor of relative waking consciousness.
Practice can allow one to develop the ability to remain within the present-moment consciousness when first awakening as a meditative exercise. Spiritual science cultivates this desire to remain within the fold of the waking dream experience wherein many truths of independently investigated subjects are intuited and further inspired into imaginative content.
But as soon as the eyes and ears turn to the sense world, a buffer is created between the environment and the previously felt inner domain, and that which had just been on the surface sinks down into the famed "subconsciousness" of Freud.
