“Karen Hylen, the primary therapist at Summit Malibu Treatment Center in California, said that, while people have historically resorted to cannibalism for survival or religious reasons, modern interpretations of cannibalism focus on questions of addiction or mental illness.
"People who have engaged in this act report feelings of euphoria or get a 'high' by performing the action to completion," she told The Huffington Post. "These individuals have psychopathic tendencies and are generally not psychotic. They know exactly what they are doing."
Hylen said cannibalism often begins as a fantasy, which the person plays out in his or her head. But when that person gets a taste for real, "the pleasure center of the brain becomes activated and large amounts of dopamine are released –- similar to what happens when someone ingests a drug like cocaine."”-(Credit: HuffPost )
I think you all know what my thoughts on the “impending zombie invasion” are after reading my blog the other day. I don’t think it’s real. I think people are insane for believing it. And I cannot stand people who entertain the thought of an actual zombie invasion. I can’t stand it. With that being said, I’m going to go ahead and entertain the thought of an actual zombie invasion. Let’s for a minute just say that people aren’t crazy. Let’s just say that zombies are taking over the world. What this doctor is saying is that being a zombie isn’t a disease. It isn’t a science experiment gone bad. It isn’t a plague. It’s an addiction? We have spent so much time trying to figure out ways to overcome the zombie invasion. We have spent so much time figuring out how to survive. We have spent so much time trying to figure out how to KILL zombies! We’ve made survival guides. We’ve watched movies. We’ve prepped bomb shelters for survival. What for? We don’t them! All this time we have wasted! Turns out our only line of defense against zombies is rehab! They just need help. We have been going about this all wrong. It’s time to convert all the bomb shelters into hospitals! It’s time to stage interventions! We need fleets of therapists lining the streets! They need our help. They can’t help it. They have to do it. Being and zombie is an addiction and we have to save them from themselves! It’s not too late! It’s never too late! It can be cured! We can save the world! Come on people! We still got a shot!
