Nitricums can be enthusiastic party people. They want to be someone; to be the best and in Hydrogen there is a sense of joy and unity.
How do the positive life-asserting traits of Hydrogen and Nitrogen turn to Rancour in the Ammoniacums?
When the gases, Hydrogen and Nitrogen combine their primevil freedom is lost.
They jangle together in a burning liquid!
The negative aspects of each prevail, for H2 loss of unity, looking for something to hold on too ...
For N2 its hypochondria - a fear of loosing it all.
The result is anger, from both frustrated idealism (H2) and enjoyment (N2).
The Ammonicum molecule itself can combine with various anions. The rubrics of Ammonium Carb and Ammonium Mur are very similar which makes differentiation very difficult without the knife edge dissection possible with Dr. Scholtens group analysis. Lets start by comparing the rubrics.
- Dwells on what people are saying and complaints from listening to others talking (Kent).
- Dwell on what others did to displease her. Lies awake from the excitement caused.
- Ailments from anger and disappointed love.
- Abusive. Morose. Estranged. Hatred. Violent. Loathing life. Amoral.
- Fear, life-long. Suicidal.
- Aversion to opp sex.
- Sensitive to impressions.
- Escapes from family.
- Abusive. Morose. Estranged. Hatred. Revenge. Malice. Envy.
- Ailments from grief, abuse or humiliation.
- Sensitive to certain persons
- Aversion to family
- Grief cannot cry
The similarity is striking. Using group analysis we can begin to differentiate. The salt gives direction to the Ammonum complaints. With Am-c it is directed towards the father and in Am-m it is towards the mother. Mother can also imply nuturing - or the lack of it. So the resentment can be about lack of protection and nurturing. They feel unloved and insecure.
In Am-c they can turn against the father and then extend this to life in general. Resentment extends to every little injustice in life - the lads who pick fights with everyone and everything.
In the Nitricums, Hydrogen and Nitrogen are exhausted and used up by Oxygen.
The main Oxygen themes are selfishness, loss of self-worth and a sense of abuse - we begin to feel sorry for ourselves, and become a helpless victim of circumstances.
Consider Nit-ac (Hydrogen + Nitrogen + Oxygen) vs. Phos-ac (Hydrogen + Phos + Oxygen) ...
- Ailments bad news (grief, shock, death of loved one), discords, domination.
- Aversion to certain persons. Complaining. Cursing at home.
- Intolerant of contradiction. Anger. Cynical. Cruelty. Litigious.
- Loss of emotions. Brooding. Despair - rage. Death - desires.
- Anxiety from thinking about things.
- Artistic. Amorous. Benevolence. Cheerful.
- Ailments from death of loved ones. Grief, disappointed love, loss of friends. Rudeness.
- Brooding. Indifference. Dwells. Envy. Suspicious. Despair. Anger - trifles. Violent.
- Hatred - persons who have offended.
- Amorous. Laughing. Vivacious. Weeping. Sentimental. Sensitive.
At a glance we can see the influence of "oxidation" - worthlessness and the sense of being abused - on the social axis of the Phos element. Note also the Nitricum themes - esp. the stewing anger - common to both. In Nit-ac all enjoyment has been crushed; life is worthless.
Nit-ac - loss of enthusiasm.
In Nit-ac the themes of Oxygen are imposed upon N2 and H2.
HN03! That's a lot of spent Oxygen.
The substance (Nitric acid) becomes exhausted, bitter and corrosive...
... But they can't give up and keep fighting for the kind of life they enjoy...
Phos Ac - loss of communication - isolation.
The livliness and extroversion of Phos gradually becomes exhausted (or oxidised?).
In Phos-ac they can loose contact with their family and friends.
They might drop out of their course and let it all go to hell.
The result is apathy and isolation.
