even the very pyramids.” The 18th century saw the spread of canal building, which led to the discovery of strata correlated over great distances, and James Hutton’s recognition that unconformities between successive layers implied that deposition had been interrupted by enormously long periods of tilt and erosion.By 1788 Hutton had formulated a theory of cyclic deposition and uplift, with the earth indefinitely old, showing “no vestige of a beginning—no prospect of an end.” Hutton considered the present to be the key to the past, with geologic processes driven by the same forces as those we can see at work today.When dealing with malignant narcissists, psychopaths, sociopaths, borderlines, drama queens, stalkers and other emotional vampires, it’s commonly advised that no response is the best response to unwanted attention.This is often true and No Contact (the avoidance of all communication) should be used whenever possible.Senile cataract is an age-related, vision-impairing disease characterized by gradual progressive thickening of the lens of the eye.It is the world’s leading cause of treatable blindness.They turned on the pity ploy and the charm, and because we didn’t understand that this is what a psychopath does, we fell for their promises to change. For them, it’s easy and fun to lure us back by appealing to our emotions. In fact, when you leave a psychopath, he becomes determined to punish you even more severely for thinking you could be autonomous.

Losing control or power over a person is not just a narcissistic injury for them; they feel profoundly empty when their partner leaves them even if they had intended to kill their partner. It differs from No Contact in that you don’t overtly try to avoid contact with these emotional vampires.

When the patient complains of glare, visual acuity should be tested in a brightly lit room.
Contrast sensitivity may also be checked, especially if the history points to a possible problem.
