Brain and Organ Level: The corresponding brain relays are the control centers of the rectum surface mucosa (left temporal lobe) and the bronchial mucosa (right temporal lobe), located diagonally opposite each other in the cerebral cortex.

Once the second conflict occurs, the person is in constellation and manic-depressive (compare with primary mania and primary depression). Whether the manic or depressed mood is dominant is determined by which of the two conflicts is stronger. The constellation can be permanent or recurring due to tracks or conflict relapses.

The Mytho Constellation presents as compulsive talking. People in this constellation have a persistent urge to talk. They carry on endless monologues and are hard to interrupt. They speak rapidly and loudly, particularly when the mania-related conflict is pronounced or when they set on a track provoked, for instance, by a certain subject associated with one of the two conflicts (or both). From a biological point of view, the excessive talking serves the purpose to talk the opponent down.

This brain scan of a left-handed female illustrates a Mytho Constellation (view the GNM diagram) with the impact of the corresponding conflicts in the control center of the rectum surface mucosa (left temporal lobe) and the bronchial mucosa (right temporal lobe). The scare-fright conflict, related to the bronchial mucosa, shows as partly resolved.
In psychiatry, a rapid and pressured speech is termed logorrhea. It is assumed that this behavior is controlled from the Broca’s area, or speech center, embedded in the laryngeal muscles relay on the left side of the cerebral cortex. Dr. Hamer's brain scan studies show, however, that the uncontrollable talkativeness originates in a schizophrenic constellation that involves the control center of the bronchial mucosa (rather than the larynx relay) located on the right cortical hemisphere. Furthermore, the Broca’s area controls the ability to speak and to pronounce words (see stuttering) and not the speed or flow of talking. NOTE: When the excessive talking is accompanied by motor hyperactivity, this indicates an additional Motor Cortex Constellation caused by “feeling stuck”.

The “talkaholic” doesn’t necessarily need an audience. Hence, the constellation might manifest itself as self-talk or mumbling monotonously to oneself. With a strong constellation, the self-talk is limited to the repetition of particular words or phrases, including loud bursts of swear words with a concurrent Aggressive Constellation. Endless inner monologues are characteristic for the depressed mood or when the depression-related conflict is reactivated through setting on a track. The encounter with a conflict track triggers an instant outpour of internal speeches directed toward the person(s) associated with the territorial anger conflict or identity conflict. The mytho-depressive is also inclined to express his thoughts and sorrows in long, excessive diary entries rather than out loud.
Mythomaniacs are overflowing with ideas, especially in the areas of their interest, whether it is a trade, a business, a research project, or a work of art. They are able to improvise with ease about any subject. Just as “appetite comes with eating”, for mythomaniacs the ideas come with talking. Here we find the raconteur, the master of inventing imaginative stories, the prolific writer who publishes one book after the other, often within the same genre (horror stories, vampire stories, detective novels, science fiction), the articulate public speaker (moderator, scholar, politician, preacher), and those folks who are always ready to deliver a punch line (comedians, entertainers). When a mythomaniac tells a story, he talks not only to others, he also entertains himself! Elaborate “letters to the editor” or endlessly long emails are also typical for this constellation. Generally, the preferred subjects of a mythomaniac point to the original conflict (territorial fear conflict, scare-fright conflict, identity conflict, territorial anger conflict). Pushing that button opens a verbal floodgate.

Professor offers new Views of the Muse

The Harvard Gazette, January 29, 2004

Harvard Medical School neurology instructor Alice Flaherty found that “if the temporal lobe activity holds sway, an aspiring scribe may turn out 600 logorrheic pages. If the temporal lobes are restrained by frontal lobe changes, the result might be pinched and timid”. This is in line with what Dr. Hamer has already discovered in the early 1990s. Except, based on GNM, a writer’s block is not related to changes in the frontal lobe, as suggested, but rather occurs when the mania-related conflict on the left cortical hemisphere is temporarily resolved (with hemorrhoids during the healing phase). Setting purposely on the manic track will break the writer’s block and reactivate the creativity.                                            

What is known as hypergraphia is a compulsion displayed by extensively detailed writing. The individual expression of hypergraphia is determined by the degree of the related conflicts and their exact content. With a highly intense constellation, a person might continuously repeat one and the same word.

Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), the author of children books, including Alice in Wonderland (note his maturity stop!) is said to have had hypergraphia. In his lifetime, he wrote over 98,000 letters varying in format. Some were written backward or in rebus (using pictures to represent a word or phrases).  
A person in a Mytho Constellation has a tendency towards verbal exaggeration or even lying. A strong constellation creates the compulsive or pathological liar. With a concurrent Megalomania Constellation, the lies are designed to gain admiration or earn pity from others. With an Aggressive Constellation (see additional conflicts) the lies have a malicious intent. Someone in an Aggressive-Mytho Constellation might be driven to produce elaborate, offensive internet postings or hate posts on social media. Bloggers, gossip journalists, or character assassins that get pleasure out of harming people through defamation and slander are in these constellations.
