Seeking Help [was something else]

But there's no point trying to discuss "the science" as you say that's 
all sewn up by your theory. What I'm saying is that say there are bits 
of truth in what you are saying, say that there are even some important 
truths in what you have to say - it's possible that this is vitiated by 
the balance of what you say. I'm saying that there may be a bigger 
picture that you are not seeing, and that that unbalanced bigger picture 
is what people are recoiling from, and which is leading you astray.

It is notoriously difficult to get the balance right as one takes on 
more and more. Look at most of the research papers which are published - 
they are highly specialised and tightly written. Even the review 
articles are - and even when they are written with a theoretical 
integration at the end of them, they are judged on the extent to which 
they succeed in accurately reviewing the evidence *and* taking the field 
forward in terms of at least suggesting further empirical work which 
will advance the field.

You are not doing that - and as a consequence, you are not helping 
yourself achieve what you want to achieve. If you don't have a go at 
implementing something like what I have suggested, you'll just make 
yourself very ill, and you've already said that it's taking a heavy 

Look at my first post *again* and take the advice positively - work on 
what you have done, pare it down, see what's there.

Kind regards
