One notes that the concept of sharia is also extraterrestrial. Zizek,
PTSD in his Absolute Recoil, p.354-5 for Cuaron's Gravity (2013):

'Consequently, what we should avoid at all costs is any precipitous
"psychoanalytic" reading that would reduce this adventure in external
space to some kind of projection of the protagonist's inner
turmoil....Ryan lost her four-year-old child in a playground
accident....This is not to suggest that the social background of the
loner's confrontation with absolute loss is unimportant; the point is
rather that, instead of reading it as an expression of some social
turmoil, we should read (the hero's absolute isolation itself as a
social fact [italics]).'
(Zizek, AR p.354)

Whilst the Lancet report states, 'The USA has the highest child and
maternal mortality, homicide rate, and body-mass index of any
high-income country.' In chrons, doublets and paroxysms, how does the
curare-resin work, and the enunciations that maintain it? Guattari
offers insight for such things as may be applicable to religious belief
and the chronic determinability images invoked in PTSD:

'What a paradox this infinite contiguity is, constantly feeding on an
equally infinite separability beyond contingency, at the heart of a
milieu of infinitesimal implosion! Because -- and I repeat -- it is
effectively a matter of an essentially proliferating contiguity in the
making, which continuously secretes a virtual and unlocalizable
separability....An infinite multiplicity if series d-(infinity sign)
corresponds to each trans-serial trait. Thus each signalectic element
finds itself doubled by a multitude of 'freeze-frames', which which have
the capacity to blur this image. In other words, the d-(infinity sign)
'points of view' stop being purely observational --as was the case with
modular determination: they intervene so as to transform the texture of
(Guattari SC, p. 158)

A paroxysm of the 5 Nov doublet already mentioned is Edmund Burke:

'Ostensibly, the Reflections was was a letter addressed to M. Victor
Dupont, a French correspondent of Burke's; in reality, it was an answer
to a sermon in praise of the principles of the French Revolution
delivered to the members of the Revolution Society in London on 4
November, 1789, by the Reverend Dr. Richard Price, a Dissenter. The
Revolution Society was an organization formed by Dissenters for the
purpose of honoring the Glorious Revolution of 1688 Its membership was
still chiefly composed of Non-conformists but included some Anglicans
from both Houses of Parliament.'
(Mahoney HD, Burke: Reflections on the French Revolution p. xix)
