traumatised by media

so i got traumatised watching this film when i was 12


seriously fucked me up

"warning it could interfere with the development of children
and their attitude toward death"

"When she finally went home that day in 1985, Forget went
straight to her room. “It was as if someone dropped a dark
cloud over me,” she recalls."
(i can relate to that, i remember that when i finished the
film, it felt like the world had lost it's color. something
that stayed with me for years)

can't wait until i get my first ptsd from a vr experience,

what once has been seen cant be unseen.
had my share of gruesome pictures and clips, when a friend
talked about faces of death and we started looking it up in
the internet. those did leave a mark. i deeply regretted my
curiosity. however i guess its hardly comparable to the
trauma of real experiences, right?

footage of war may serve important purposes though.
with all the glorification, heroism and superhero,
comicalized violence, you may learn to stay away from war,
the army and violent conflict in general.
or it could make you get up your ass and try to help end
conflicts over ressources we import for example.

it mayfurther put things in perspective in numerous ways.
for example the way we perceive and treat refugees.

what im trying to say is,
if we only see people represented by numbers
the only numbers we care about is 0.89 for a chocolate bar.

sorry to hear it took a toll on you,
seriously not trying to play it down or ignore it.

hey! no problem at at :) just wanted to start a
conversation. im fine. but i think about it sometimes. and
yes, you are right, a real war situation ist something
totally different.

my dad once told me that they had to watch war footage at
the army and he had to go out and puke. he never told me
what they had to watch but i guess it was footage from what
the germans did to jews in second world war

i met this lady once who was working for magic leap. she
couldn't talk about things that were happening in the
basement there but she said, that with that VR/AR/MR
technology its much likely that people will get ptsd from VR
experiences of war for example. when i told that to a
psychologist he said that smell is very important. smell
will hammer that experience in your head. like the smell of
burned meat after an explosion.

then i found this

right of all senses smell is supposedly sticking in your
memory the longest. its so deep within you dont even know
what hits you when that smell reoccurs.

as to vr and smell-o-vision, i want games and tv to be
not sure where to draw the line in terms of gore.
gore shouldnt be entertaining at all. but then i just
recently watched all of stranger things and enjoyed it quite
a lot (except that season 3 seemed like an over the top
action comedy).
so heres to a little bigotism.

wonder what your dad was shown in the army. when i was in
primary school, me and my neighbours kids spent 3 weeks in a
socialist summer camp in the gdr? (ddr) and we visited the
ruins of a concentration camp. we were shown a movie of
piled carcasses, starved jews and the mountains of shoes and
more. it was terrible. this kind of footage has been shown a
lot in germany and i think it is important to do so, so
people who didnt live at the time know what that shit is
like. not neccessarily to primers though.

i also still remember a gory scene from the movie hamburger
hill, one of the earliest anti war movies i have seen. a
message can be delivered without showing the real thing.
