Etemad Art Gallery Dec 2012 Nikzad Arabshahi Chlordiazepoxide 02
مجموعهای از بیماریهای عصبی را شامل میشود كه هنوز به حدی شدت نیافته كه فرد را سزاوار مداخلههای عمیق و شدید رواندرمانی كند. سراسیمگی و اضطراب در انواع گونههای نهان و آشكار آن یكی از مهمترین و رایجترین عاملهای رواننژندی هستند.
چگونگی فرهنگ و شیوهی روابط انسانی در جامعههای معاصر ناگزیر میزان تولید «اضطراب» در همهی افراد جامعه را افزون میكند، از این رو میتوان گفت رواننژندی مسئلهای عمومی است كه شیب شیوع آن در منحنی زمانی رو به فزونی است. اما در تقابل با این وضعیت، نوع بشر همواره در جستجوی آرامش است و دور از انتظار نیست كه انسان معاصر با چنین احوالاتی برای انكار و اجتناب از اضطرابهای درونی خود به انواع راهكارهای تسكینی همچون مصرف داروهای آرامشبخش (كلردیازپوكساید) برای رسیدن به نوعی آرامش آغشته با غفلت و بیخیالی دست زند.
Neurosis includes a collection of mental disorders that have not yet reached the level that require the patient to start seeking serious and intensive help and treatment of psychologists. Confusion and stress in their different shapes and forms, hidden and apparent, are among the most important and common factors that cause neurosis.
Culture and the way human relations are treated in the contemporary societies inevitably increase the level of stress generation in every single person of that society. Thus, neurosis could be considered a public problem and the slope of its curve is rising with the passage of time. But to combat this situation, humankind has always been searching for peace and tranquility. It is not unexpected then that contemporary human beings in such situations, to avoid or even deny their internal stress, grasp in temporary solutions like taking tranquilizer drugs such as Chlordiazepoxide so they can reach a kind of peace mixed with oblivion and carelessness.

Overview and History
Tehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.
Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.
But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.
In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.
The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.
The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."
Mehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.
Tehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.
The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.
Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.
People and Culture
More than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.
Things to do, Recommendations
Take the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.
If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.
Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.
Tehran is also full of museums such as:
the Contemporary Art Museum
the Abghine Musuem (glass works)
the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museum
the museum of carpets (!!!)
Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniatures
and most stunning of all,
the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.
