Are toddlers being abducted by child traffickers at children’s toy stores in Los Angeles? Could subconscious misinterpretation of the words ‘Bye Bye Baby’ goad the abductors on to this endeavor?

COMMENT: I have to say that this famous painting by Rembrandt is explicit to a fault. Don’t you agree? First, the lack of proportion in the child emphasizes the painter’s concern. And then, the child is holding a clutch of cherries, whose symbolic meaning is very clear.
This is the only painting I found on the topic “The Rape of Ganymede” where the abducted child was as young as the children apparently now being abducted, raped, and murdered within as little as a week, or at best perhaps a month, by the child trafficking trade in Los Angeles. That is because the client of the sex trafficker cannot chance the child’s parents finding out what has gone on. Or at least, so intuition tells me.
So I decided it might be good to feature the painting despite my concern about the graphic nature of this depiction. To Rembrandt’s credit, the toddler looks very upset; his features are in contrast to most of the art on this topic. Most of the art shows a look on the abducted child’s face that seems to derive from the feelings of the abductor, rather than the feelings of the kidnapped child. –Alice B. Clagett

I was just now thinking about an odd experience I had some while ago at a children’s toy store. I recall I had a feeling that toddler-napping was going on at BuyBuy Baby in my area of Los Angeles back then …

I realized that a possible subconscious mix-up of the words ‘buy’ and ‘bye’ would be a good addition to my Compendium on physical misinterpretation of metaphors by the subconscious mind. That is because very clearly, a person who makes their living as a child trafficker might, in their subconscious mind, make the mistake of mixing up the phrase ‘BuyBuy’ with the phrase ‘ByeBye.’
In addition there is the fact that BuyBuy Baby is toy store for babies.
This is further complicated by the sexual innuendo in the Four Seasons song “Bye Bye Baby (Baby Goodbye)” …

So in the subconscious mind of the child trafficker … which already has an unusually dark and unfortunate bias … might leap to these mixed up assumptions, taking it from the top …
- Ambiguous Name of the Store: I can grab toddlers there … I can tell them to say “ByeBye” to their parents … then tell my clients to “BuyBuy” these ‘products’.
- Ambiguity of the word ‘toy’: This is a ‘baby toy store’ … I will sell these ‘products’ as ‘toys’.
- Four Seasons Song: I will sell these ‘toy baby’ products as sex toys.
There we have the makings of quite a disaster for the toddlers, the parents, and in the long rung for the child trafficker as well, if he or she would only realize the riskiness of this type of endeavor, both in this lifetime and in the hereafter. Do you not feel it to be so?
I have added the metaphor here, in case you would like to take a look …

I feel my idea of physical misinterpretation of metaphors by the subconscious mind … which is, insofar as I know, my own original idea devolving from my dream interpretation work some years ago … is right fascinating. I hope you like it.
This ‘wrap-up’ on the vocabulary of the subconscious mind … another original idea of mine, as nearly as I can tell … is another favorite of mine. Maybe you will like it too …

COMMENT: Here in Los Angeles there is much blase chatter to the effect that prepubertal children do not mind being abducted for sex trafficking. The look of terror on the face of the child in the painting tells a different story. –Alice B. Clagett
