- TECHNICALLY SPEAKING..
(22 Jan 2020). One one side there is the study of the mind (psychology), which is based on DSM, acronym that means "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual", needed for any psychological diagnosis, which has legal and therefore also social, economic, and forensic value (but not a scientific value, and this is obvious if one considers that the border between normal and abnormal is chosen in a totally arbitrary way); and on the other side, indeed, there is the study of self-determination and self-accomplishment (hypnology), which is based on the concept that each person is unique and different from all the others, and therefore it's easy to understand why here the DSM is extremely unsuitable, and so, in order to provocatively underline the disinterest of hypnology towards the DSM we could say that the acronym DSM at best could mean, technically speaking, "Dictionary of Soul Masturbations".
