    to me it just makes sense that people will break under torture after long enough. that doesn't necessarily mean they'll give the interrogator the information sought. but yes, torture will probably eventually drive any person mad. this isn't to say recovery of some sort isn't possible.

    i imagine that if the person has been "thoroughly broken" as the torturers see it and still won't give the wanted information, and no experimentation or further violation retrieves that information, then they'll probably just kill the person. what good are they then? (if you do give up the information, your fate may not be any better, depending on what sort of scenario this is.)

    i'll try to refrain from going on and on about how torture is wrong and probably not the best way to gain information from someone. i mean, what if you really don't have what they want? then it can become a game of trying to say what you think they want you to say. and they, being torturers (who probably are sick in the head) may be unable to grasp this.

    but the point is that we exist in a universe of entropy. we can't maintain a perfect state (like our peak mental health) forever. torture accelerates decline. (i'll leave thoughts of spiritual enlightenment out of this.)

    well, i suppose as long as one lives and breathes, they can siphon their little remaining energy and will into the patterns of thought needed to transcend the situation. and maybe it's not even that much that is needed. maybe you can keep your little piece of yourself, and as little as it is, it can be enough. and maybe you can keep it for as long as you have, assuming they don't cut up your brain and completely destroy you. it's so terrible to think about.

    i haven't read that book, but it's on my list, if it's the one i'm thinking of.

    what about madness? or does that quickly destabilize into the second solution?

    The psychological barriers you create in your mind stay with you after the ordeal.
    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.
