What’s grating in your head?

down on it?

You’re lying


Did you have any images from the past again?


What did she tell about the hairdresser’s?


You lay down?


don’t you want to see?


Do look at it Dik. Look at it. Look at it.

A mountain.


What are you seeing?


Try to look at it. Don’t walk away.

What are you seeing?

You’re seeing dead people?

dead people, dead horses.



They’ve been hanged. They’ve been hanged.

Leafless trees.


7 June 1987, 10 June 1987.

The 7th Pentothal session of Dik de Boef.

Starting at 10.30. Anaesthetist, Dr. van Dijk. 600 mg

Pentothal, left arm.

Present are professor B., doctor Kwakernaak and is nurse

Joop coming too?

He’s still sleeping peacefully,

we’ll wait for a while.



What did you dream?

About Africa? Tell about it.

An endless road?

And what were you telling?

An omnipresent narrator?

Were you walking there on your own?






Where do you feel the anger?

Where is it?

Still in your chest, right?


That’s not the case. If you wish someone to be dead then

It is that primitive anger,


you could never release that anger.

You’re afraid


you’ll kill someone.

what you fear.

There’s a power to kill in you

Are there people you could kill?

that’s already a kind of killing that person.


How furious? You must dare to feel that rage.


No, that you could destroy the other person.

No, it’s what we saw in Germany.

Hitler Jugend.

What was

ANGER! Do you know the result of an upbringing such as

Because they’re not kind to you, not giving you warmth.

Children were always beaten there. They had to be sturdy

and bear it bravely. And what was the result of that?

Destroying Everything

That’s why it’s so

the result of that upbringing?

important that you can feel that anger, here in this safe

environment. That you dare to imagine… who you could kill.

You were furious. YOU WERE FURIOUS.




You could hang them all?

So, you do know HOW ANGRY YOU ARE!

My god, my god.

How angry? SHOUT IT OUT!



You’re suppressing that anger again.

Why? You’re embarrassed.

You’re embarrassed by it.


any problem.


I’m not saying you should kill them, I’m saying you

Because it is in you, that anger! It is within you,

should dare to realize you would like to do it. That’s

burdening you for years. And when you dare to feel this,

another thing.

you will move forward.

Dare to express it for once.

It would

relieve you!


It really doesn’t have to be so difficult. But it

seemingly is very difficult.


Where are you?

I’m wetting your lips.

What’s going on in your mind?


What did you think

Would you like to give a Pentothal? Dik?

when you got the injection?


this text has been edited together from thirty hours

of audio recordings of psychoanalytic sessions that

were conducted between 1986 and 1991 by Dutch

psychiatrist Professor Jan bastiaans and his team.

During these sessions, the patient was put into a

somnolent state through the administration of sodium

Pentothal, a rapid-onset general anaesthetic more

commonly referred to as a truth serum. While under

the influence of this medication, the patient’s memories

were triggered and guided by doctors through a lengthy

process of psychoanalysis and psychodrama.
