REMOVING THE PACKING and Protective Materials: "Everything alive, including a brain, finds itself in a big dilemma: It must be sufficiently open to take in everything it needs for the growth and maintenance of its inner order, but at the same time, it must be sufficiently closed to prevent external disturbances from penetrating into its inner world and threatening the stability of the inner order that has been built up there.

Scientists who have been studying bullying behavior for more than a century categorize different types of bullying.  According to religious author, Frank Peretti, there are two basic reasons why anyone bullies, and most often they have a long-term, deep troubling need that has not been met. The other is that they think it is acceptable behavior, or “cool” to pick on someone.

Common bullying methods are physical, verbal, indirect, social alienating, and cyber. “Physical bullying” includes any physical contact that would hurt or injure a person.

Taking something that belongs to someone else and destroying it is physical bullying.  The second is “verbal bullying,” for instance name-calling, making offensive remarks, or joking about a person's religion, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or the way they look.

 Very prevalent is the type labeled “indirect bullying” which includes spreading rumors or stories about someone, telling others about something that was told to you in private, and excluding others from groups. “Social alienation” is when a bully excludes someone from a group on purpose.  Cyber-bullying is done by sending messages, pictures, or information using electronic media.
