Did you know that…..
some prisoners during World War II interrogations were able to remain very alert and to outsmart their captors with shrewd answers ?
They fostered a state of cold detachment to achieve this mastery of their fears.
Many of them had experiences of having no body, no sensations, no feeling, etc., during that detachment state.
That cold state had a defensive function.
