Brand Killer Robots 'Electronic Self' has many parallels with Salvador Dali's Surrealist technique paranoiac-critical method.
Brand killer robots likens Dali's paranoiac-critical method to a psyhological moribund known as electronic self affliction which is a psychological state of electronic entrenchment that can only be described as living a life full of perpetual near life and near death experiences.
Brand Killer Robots uses the state of electronic self affliction to perceive pathological threats to the world organization.
Paranoiac-critical method is the ability of the brain to perceive links between things which rationally are not linked. Dalí described the paranoiac-critical method as a "spontaneous method of irrational knowledge based on the critical and systematic objectivity of the associations and interpretations of delirious phenomena."
Dali said "I believe that the moment is at hand when by a paranoiac and active advances of the mind it is possible (simultaneously with automatism and other passive states) to systematize confusion and thus help to discredit completely the world of reality.
Dali sought to create in his art a specific documentation of Freudian theories which he applied to his own inner world. He started a painting with the first image that came to mind and went on from one association to the next, multiplying images of persecution and megalomania, like a true paranoiac.
He defined his paranoiac critical method of irrational knowledge based upon the interpretative critical association of delirious phenomena.
Using Dali's methods and our understanding of electronic self affliction it is possible to perceive threats to the world and/or commercial organization, working on limited behavioral data - sometimes years in advance. Our results enable security leaders to see the full scope of the vulnerability matrix and to rationalize counter-measures and contingencies to mitigate the risk of them occurring - or at the very least - limiting their impact. Scenarios are developed and presented in visual format so that security managers can begin to work on counter-measures.
Our Research in the field of security intelligence is concentrated on identifying areas of pathological activity contributing to vulnerabilities (such as false flags) in matrix systems including:
Malignant Narcissism, Self-Hatred, Self-Ambushing, Internet Regression, Passive-Aggressiveness, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder , Megalomania, Agoraphobia, Major Depressive Disorder, Arrogance, Cowardice, Intolerance, Neurosis (Neurotic), Mania, Procrastination, Alienation (No Id), Irrationality, Repression, Abused (Victim), Dreamer, Distracted, Illusionist, Detached, Fantasist, Cavalier, Beastliness, Social Anxiety Disorder, Structurialism, Virtual, Perfectionism, Strategic Eye, Panentheist outlook and General Whackomania!
Malignant narcissism is considered a cross breed of narcissistic personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, and paranoid traits. The malignant narcissist differs from narcissistic personality disorder in that the malignant narcissist derives higher levels of psychological gratification from accomplishments over time (thus worsening the disorder). Because the malignant narcissist becomes more involved in this psychological gratification, they are apt to develop the antisocial, the paranoid, and the schizoid personality disorders. The term malignant is added to the term narcissist to indicate that individuals with this disorder tend to worsen in their impulse controls and desires over time. Sexual Promiscuity is often associated with this disorder, but is not always the case.
Self-hatred, self-loathing, also sometimes autophobia refers to an extreme dislike of oneself, or being angry at oneself.

Passive-aggressive behavior refers to passive, sometimes obstructionist resistance to following authoritative instructions in interpersonal or occupational situations. It can manifest itself as resentment, stubbornness, procrastination, sullenness, or repeated failure to accomplish requested tasks for which one is assumed, often explicitly, to be responsible. It is a defense mechanism and more often than not only partly conscious. For example, people who are passive-aggressive might take so long to get ready for a party they do not wish to attend that the party is nearly over by the time they arrive.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a psychiatric anxiety disorder most commonly characterized by a subject's obsessive, distressing, intrusive thoughts and related compulsions (tasks or "rituals") which attempt to neutralize the obsessions.
Mental disorder producing delusions of grandeur. Passion for grandiose schemes.
Agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder, often precipitated by the fear of having a panic attack in a setting from which there is no easy means of escape. As a result, sufferers of agoraphobia may avoid public and/or unfamiliar places. In severe cases, the sufferer may become confined to their home, experiencing difficulty traveling from this "safe place."
Major Depressive Disorder
Major depressive disorder, also known as major depression, unipolar depression, clinical depression, or simply depression, is a psychiatric disorder characterized by a pervasive low mood, loss of interest in a person's usual activities and diminished ability to experience pleasure
