OBSESSION AS FOLIE À DEUX
Might obsession or possession be considered an instance of folie à deux, in a psychological context? That is to say, might the obsessed person have subconsciously agreed to be ‘obsessed’ by the shadow of the personality of another person? Are there long-standing friendships in which this is the case?
BULLYING EXPRESSED AS RAPE FACILITATED BY FOLIE À DEUX PARTNER
An instance might be where one man has a tendency to bullying, yet was taught as a child not to do so. Still, he has the samskara of bullying, not yet cleared from his Soul wounding, but unknown to himself in adulthood.
I hypothesize that the subconscious mind of such a man might lead him to develop a friendship with a man who has a similar samskara, and less inhibition toward acting out. Then the first man might put his friend in a position of acting out the bullying, which would be gratifying to both men … the one, at first hand, and the second, through putting himself in the place of the man who achieves the act in the physical realm. In other words, the first man enjoys the act of rape ‘by proxy’ through the second man, who ‘stands in’ for him.
Here is an instance I heard of on the astral plane in recent years: One man might like to rape women, but knows it is wrong. He forms a friendship with another man, who flat out likes to rape women. The first man charms and woos women, and seduces them. These women fall head over heels for him, and give him a key to their abode.
The first man makes a copy of the key for his friend, who then slips in at night, blindfolds the wooed women, and rapes them.
The women can tell that the manner of sexual intercourse is very different from that of their lover. But they are confused, because the two men resemble each other in body weight, muscle mass, height, and hairdo. Because they were blindfolded, they do not know what happened.
These actions may occur in a mutual fugue state, and not be remembered by either man; if brought to their attention, they may or may not remember the events that occurred or why they occurred.
SUBCONSCIOUS INVOLVEMENT IN REPETITIVE ACTING OUT: REPRESSED MEMORIES – FUGUE STATE
This lack of understanding of repetitive events, failure to remember them, and inability to change them, I posit would have to do with the subconscious repression of the first man, due to early childhood parental caveats; the springing forth of the repressed emotion, and its expression through obsession or ‘egging on’ of the second man, being the catalyst of the repetitive ‘acting out’; and then the boxing up of the emotion back into the subconscious mind of the first man, after the proxy act takes place.
The second man might remember the actions, but not feel that they were wrong or reprehensible, because his upbringing was different from that of the first man.

SUBSTITUTION OF NAMES AND OBJECTS IN DAYDREAMS BECAUSE OF FEAR OF SOCIAL CENSURE
Or this might be a recurrent daydream shared by the two men, played out using different women that they know, and maybe not substituting the names of other women in the daydream, so as to conceal their ‘mark’ or ‘target’ woman.
It is also possible that such a recurrent daydream might migrate to the shared thought of sex between the two men, but using the name of a woman as their fantasy sex object so as to avoid social censure on the astral plane.
Cultural homophobic concerns regarding such migration from shared male daydream of a female sex object, to mutual male astral sexual stimulation are, I feel, to some extent expressed in this artwork …
ADULTS ONLY (PG-13 – NUDITY): Image: “Around the Dragon’s Broken Neck Hangs the Medal of Saint Lazarus” by various artists (Hospital Productions) … https://i.scdn.co/image/a34ab903fe77a65c8ebbd5f54306900fc3867baa … DESCRIPTION: This is a photograph of a man standing by an oil barrel, and holding in his right hand a big tin can. In front of him is a person with a scantily clothed woman’s body and a man’s bowed head. To me, it seems as if the first man is about to pour something from the can onto be back of the person in front of him.
In fact, I feel this type of male shared daydream, whether by two men or by many, putatively targeting a lone woman, may be the basis for male athletic camaraderie and for men who socialize together in an all-men’s club or in cultures and religions worldwide where men and women socialize in separate groups.
FOLIE À DEUX REGARDING SAMSKARA OF SOCIALLY FROWNED UPON EXPRESSION OF SEX DRIVE
Another manner of expressing this form of folie à deux might take place where one man is taught as a child to act with propriety. Yet he has a samskara of acting out in ways socially frowned upon, such as through sex work or pornographic movie acting.
This man does not engage in these behaviors, but still has the Soul wounding that, in another lifetime perhaps, expressed itself in these activities. Subconsciously he longs to express himself in this way.
The first man forms a friendship with a second man who has no inhibitions regarding these behaviors. The first man then eggs the second on to sex work, and facilitates this by providing a shared workspace for the activity. In that way he enjoys the sex work activity ‘by proxy’.
Or, the first man gets a job as a porn star, but at the last minute, for the closeup of the act of sex, the second man stands in and his genitalia are photographed in the act of intercourse. One might feel that the first man had acted in a way that contravenes societal expectations, but he might argue that the physical act was that of someone else, and not his own.
Shared Identity in Folie à Deux
That the second man ‘stands in’ for the act of sex can, I feel, lead to a subconscious misunderstanding between the two men. They may begin to answer the phone and transact business and personal relationships as if each were the other. They may not, in their subconscious minds, make the distinction ‘I’ versus ‘other’.
This misunderstanding may be abetted by similarity of physical appearance. In short, each may confuse himself with his friend. They may even feel they are the same person. This hypothetical instance might, I feel, be yet another expression of folie à deux.
FOLIE À COTERIE REGARDING CON ARTIST GROUP OR CYBERCRIME CLUB
In a similar way, a con artist group of people, or a cybercrime club, might be considered folie à coterie, as confidence games are, I feel, a form of bullying or one-upmanship.
BULLYING AND SADOMASOCHISM
In a psychological context, I feel these two forms of folie relate to the sexual dysfunction termed ‘sadomasochism’.
Alternatively, they might be thought of as daydreams expressing male bonding.
