There's a sucker born every minute.
     -- P.T. Barnum

    According to David W. Maurer, writing in 'The Big Con' (1940),[3] there was a similar saying amongst con men: "There's a mark born every minute, and one to trim 'em and one to knock 'em". Here 'trim' means to rip off, and 'knock' means to persuade away from a scam. The meaning is that there is no shortage of new victims, nor of con men, nor of honest men.

Yes - I am still around: In fact doing somewhat better since 6 weeks on megadoses sublingual B12, which is pleasant, for a change, not because I am cured, since I am not, but to have something which sofar has helped me feel less miserable for over 6 weeks continuously. I wrote about it a month ago, and will do so again - but not now.

Now is the time to sing the genius that is Dr. Esther Crawley, the paediatric English genius who got no less ₤ 120.000 from the Linbury Trust and ₤ 44.000 from the Ashden Trust, all to investigate ethically, morally, scientifically and as a genius whether children ill with ME should be taught that they are merely doing ME (ding ME, Phil Parker wants the world to say), because they have the dysfunctional belief that they are in pain and are ill - which cannot be so, Phil Parker and dr. Esther Crawley, the famous paediatrician, who is the truest of true geniuses both insist: These children merely d ME - in Phil's very own immortal terms - and merely thought themselves ill. (See P.S. for ding ME.)

How do I know this must be so?

Since I have over 32 years of dysfunctional beliefs, in which I did all the studies necessary to end with the best possible M.A. in psychology, I must be very careful, in what I say about psychological subjects. And while it is also - gasp! - true that I do have a very high IQ, one must be very careful in what one attributes or lets others attribute to oneself, especially when dealing with - gasp! - true genius, of the Esther Crawley quality, unadulterated, pure, honest, true:

Hypatia was a genius; madame Curie was a genius; Emmy Noether was a genius; and dr. Esther Crawley is a genius too. Really! "Would I lie-ie-ie-ie to you?" .......

Would I lie to you?
Would I lie to you honey?
Now would I say something that
wasn't true?
I'm asking you sugar
Would I lie-ie-ie-ie to you?

As little as Phil Parker would lie to anyone - I tell you forsooth, yea verily - for He says so on His own site, under His own name, under His own picture, if writing in the third person about Himself, because He is such a humble, honest man - which also forces me to put the key part of his vision bold red:


His core principal [sic] is that people are geniuses with amazing skills, qualities and talents, and he hopes he can help as many people as possible to find that out about themselves. You can get Phil's latest thoughts, self-help tools and videos for free from his podcast, blog, twitter and Facebook sites.

[sic]: Personally, I know how to spell, but I suppose this is a new genius spelling of the genius among geniuses, Phil Parker. (See P.S.)

See?! Clearly, Phil Parker must be a genius, or else he wouldn't say so.

That's how I know dr. Esther Crawley also is a genius, which is why she is going to investigate honestly and scientifically - truly! honestly! - whether children should be taught to tell the world that they feel better if they feel ill, for this, so dr. Esther Crawley holds -  and she is a genius paediatrician - is how one cures ill children: Make them tell the world that they only thought themselves ill, while having everybody on. And dr.Esther Crawley is a genius.

You know this because Phil Parker, the Stalin of the Phil Parker Group - "Our core principle is that people are geniuses (..)" - who like Stalin must be a genius among geniuses, told you and me and the world: People are geniuses. Thus, Phil Parker must be a genius among geniuses. Therefore dr. Benor - the Creator of Whee - is a genius. Therefore Ms. Jacquie Footman BA(Hons) PGCE EFTCert-I, MNCP MAAMET EFT & NLP Practitioner AAMET EFT Trainer EMDR, WHEE, EmoTrance and Reiki is a major genius (if you didn't know this already from the length, weight, and genius-quality of her titles). And clearly dr. Esther Crawley must be a paediatrician genius, oxonbridge-educated, Parker-validated.

Happily - aren't we all equivalent? You, Aristotle, Shakespeare, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Dr. Crawley, Phil Parker, Joseph Goebbels, Simon Wessely ... geniuses all - there are in our fine English democracy more geniuses: There is, for example, Mrs. Joan Kirkbride, the Head of Operations of the British National Research Ethics Service: She is a genius, as are all the members of the Ethics Committee, who think it is most ethical to render the children unto Phil and Esther, to find out experimentally whether medical experiments on children...

...make sense: OF COURSE they do: Dr. Esther Crawley, genius AND The British National Research Ethics Service - Head of Operations: Ms. Joan Kirkbride, genius- say so.

"Would they lie-ie-ie-ie to you?"

Let's experiment on children! In their own interest! Really! LP only costs 800 pounds a throw! The worst that can happen is that it'll make you ill for decades: Don't be a wimp, don't d ME  - try LP: A mere 800 pounds + VAT to teach your children to behave properly and healthily!

P.S. What about the genius among geniuses - his "core principal"! - very own thought of superlative genius of the word and concept of "ding ME etc"?

Here is Phil Parker, genius among geniuses, in his very own words:

When listening to people talking about the problems in their lives you can often hear what I call passive statements.

I am stressed by the state of the economy is a good example of this; its passive because theres not much they can do about their stress until the economy improves or time passes. So in effect they seem to be left powerless by circumstances that are beyond their control, and there is a sense of being stuck with the problem.

There just didnt seem to be an easy way of doing this using existing words, so I decided to create a new word to describe this change.

Let me give an example;

To change I am stressed from a passive to an active, we need to use the new word


The word ding comes from the new verb d (d, des, dd).

So I am stressed


I am ding stress

See?! By a mere simple addition to the English language me, Orwell's Winston, and Phil's trainees are put in our places: Wimpy ders, who just don't want to admit that, in the best traditions of prof Wessely of King's College, London, whoever thinks he has ME only hs it as he ds it himself (or herself, of course).

Now while it is true that professor Wessely arrived there before Phil Parker, it is also true that Phil Parker might have thought it all up himself, as a genius. Great minds think alike, don'tcha know?!

Thus also we can see that the children in the above picture were clearly "ding stress",

"because theres not much they can do about their stress"

as they were systematically burned by dr. Mengele - colleague of dr. Crawley - without having any say in it, as they were all very well aware.

But still they were - stupidly, one assumes, with Phil - "ding stress", living in times that were not yet quite ripe for the arisal of professor Wessely, dr. Crawley, and the genius among geniuses Phil Parker (DO Dip E Hyp P NLP MBIH Certified Master Practitioner of NLP: no less: too much of a genius for a university education, it seems).

Finally... readers: One must always realize that, faced with supreme genius, many want to deny it, pooh pooh it, neglect it, or persecute it: Socrates was poisoned; Bruno was burned; and Galileo was threatened with torture.

And there are even people who don't take Phil Parker, Simon Wessely and Esther Crawley serious, proof positive as that must be that they are ding the wrong thing. But in the interest of completeneness and balance, here is

  • Phil Parker Lightning ProcessTM  in the Skeptic's Dictionary, and

  • Why Bogus Therapies Often Seem to Work by Barry L. Beyerstein, Ph.D.

  • Children should not be used as guinea pigs: (Lightning Process Pilot study)  by  Professor Robin Gill, Church Times

However... you should keep in mind reading the above three links that their authors, like yours truly, cannot possibly be geniuses, in the sense that Phil Parker, Dr. Esther Crawley, Simon Wessely MD BSc, and Mrs. Joan Kirkbride are clearly geniuses all.

Don't be too harsh on these benighted ders who have - as yet: there's hope for all, as long as there's life - not had their dysfunctional beliefs cleansed by the Lightning Process or the approximately equivalent  NICE Process (of professors Wessely, White and Sharpe), and who may be wondering whether it is not crapulant fraudulence, in their benightedness:

And as for me + ME: PLEASE DR. CRAWLEY.... PLEASE don't just d things: Convince the world and convince the British medical world, as you convinced the ethical geniuses headed by your fellow genius mrs. Kirkbride that Britain has a new Isaac Newton, and his name is Phil Parker!

You owe it to the world, you owe it to Phil and you owe it to evidence based medicine: miracles do (not just: d) exist, and Phil Parker's Process manufactures them in just three days, by the thousands, and cures almost any disease.

Would I lie to you?
Would I lie to you honey?
Now would I say something that
wasn't true?
I'm asking you sugar
Would I lie-ie-ie-ie to you?

Has it not seen? The Sea, in storm or calm,

Have its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!
