From Prometheus Rising by Robert Anton Wilson
The second, emotional-territorial circuit creates a two-dimensional social
space in conjunction with first-circuit advance-retreat.
||Area of Hostile Strength
'I'm ok, you're not ok'
'I give the orders here!'
|Area of Friendly Strength
(The Good Parent)
'I'm ok, you're ok'
'It's safe out here.'
|Area of Hostile Weakness
'I'm not ok, you're not ok'
'Mommy take me home'
|Area of Friendly Weakness
(The Dependent Neurotic)
'I'm not ok, you're ok'
'Please tell me what to do'
Notice that Hostile Strength (the tyrant) is inclined toward paranoid
withdrawal; he must govern, but he is also afraid. Note also that the
Dependent Neurotic is not in retreat at all; he or she advances upon you,
demanding fulfillment of emotional 'needs' (imprints).
