Wade, in cases where we need to go in someone's head ( serial killers)
it is relevant to the obsever what happened in the brain of the performer !
Profilers need in a sense to ' anticipate ' in the memetic processes of the
murderer. Psychologists do it all the time !
They base their next step on what is consciously or unconsciously ' said '
They interpretate what is said and Not- said.
