“What would Charlie do?” – el Loco Gringo

 

Introducing the metaphorical Charlie Chimp. He is on the cusp of becoming human, living in a world full of new and dangerous things. Having recently abandoned his arboreal existence, he now wanders the savannas of Africa with his mate Polly Protohuman. The behavior patterns he learned in the jungle no longer are effective on the open savanna. “A-hah! He says, I’ll evolve an ANN that can control algorithms. That way I’ll be able to deal with these new threats in a timely manner”.

It is necessary to consider the anthropological origins of our behavior to understand why we behave as we do. After all, it is one thing to chuck rocks across a stream at a rival clan, it is quite another to chuck ICBMs across an ocean at a rival clan. Just as Charlie no longer lives in the jungle, we no longer live in the paleolithic. But we act as if we do. Heres a link to download naked ape. Still a good book.

So what happened? Our intrepid band of chimps has been time warped into the present, bringing their survival skills with them. It is no longer the paleolithic but it’s the same society. The alpha male has morphed into an ideology. The band has morphed into a hyper-tribe and the cohesion of the band has been lost. He no longer has a band to be loyal to. As he has evolved to live in a band of less than 150, the hyper-tribe is an abstraction. The lion has morphed into corporations to prey on him. He has evolved to be a slave. One thing that has not changed though, the hyper males that have taken over this system still get most of the poon-tang and bananas. As long as the hyper-males can keep the chimps fighting among themselves, this will continue.

From the beginning of life to the paleolithic, there was only one way for an organism to experience the universe. That was in the frequency domain. In the frequency domain there is no color, there is no time, there is no sound. There is only vibrations and there is only now. These vibrations are rotational in nature with a beat of 8 and are negentropic. Howsoever, the hominid line developed/evolved/had created (whatever) a separate mind, (left hemisphere) separated from but interconnected and synergistic with the original mind. HUMANS HAVE TWO COGNITIVE MINDS. One operating in the frequency domain (right), the second using a reduced set of the frequency domain which we call the time domain (left). This reduced set gave humans an evolutionary edge over animals, But we have lost the ability to experience the world in the frequency domain, making it difficult to understand. Thus we are left with a quantification of an interpretation of a perception. No wonder, we’re measuring shadows with a rubber ruler. In other words, it ain’t real.

The concept of “two cognitative minds” seems to turn some people off, so I’ll try another analogy. How ’bout a dual core computer. One chip is programmed with a boolean network, the other with a binary network. Each performs different logical operations on the same input. The perception is interpreted with two logic trees and compared. This comparison yields an answer. Thus what appeared to be a convoluted logic tree turns out to be two chips, using two logic patterns performing very simple calculations, (to the individual chip) to yield a synergistic answer that seems akin to magic from the outside. (Yeah, I know two sentient computer chips sounds suspiciously like two cognitive minds. Can’t be helped. the further one gets from reality, the less reality there is.) The difficulty lies in being able to wrap your head around the dual nature of the mind(s). Once that is accepted, it really is just that simple.

Vindicated

Yoga has been vindicated. Baptists recently announced that Yoga is a forbidden activity. The baptists have joined a growing list of christrian churches banning yoga. It is not a proper path for worshiping god as it seeks the spirituality within. Not suprising. I recall the joke about why baptists don’t have sex standing up, someone might think they’re dancing. Yoga is has long been banned in islamic countries. Also not suprising, they’re against everything especially anyone who questions their tenet that Islam is the “religion of peace” If you don’t believe it, they’ll kill you. Islam hasn’t had a reformation so is full scale idiocy, not the half idiocy we have in christianity.

In singapore, the people see no problem in practicing yoga and christianity. Nor do I. But if I were forced to choose, i’d pick yoga.

Typical Thinking

Posted in Society with tags , , , , on September 7, 2010 by ellocogringo

Typical

Archetype in Greek and meant “original”

Stereotype in Greek meant “firm model”.

Archetype is an open-ended template ONTO which we build stories. It is a starting point.

So an archetypical thinker is one who’s imprinting allows for new concepts, he can think for himself. The imprinting provides a foundation for developing new and innovative concepts. He is centered. Makes a good genius.

Stereotype is a closed-ended template INTO which we reduce stories. It is a finishing point.

So a sterotypical thinker is one who’s imprinting limits new concepts, he cannot think for himself. The imprinting imposes a limit past which he cannot go. He is an idiot. Cookie cutter. Makes a good slave.

No matter how you slice and dice this, it still comes out to an 80/20 mix between idiot/centered. Whereas a centered can strike out in new directions and is individualistic, the idiot moves “en masse”, a choreographed dance of dumb.

Naomi Wolf

Posted in Society with tags , , , , on September 4, 2010 by ellocogringo

MrTed> to me the problem is at the level of the western culture, and ‘the founding fathers’ were within that culture, they were ‘colonizers’ too

Here, Mr Ted and I part company. To me the problem is at the level of mankind. The human psyche is screwed. I have bounced around the world a lot. The view of Naomi Wolf is superficial. It’s true, but moot. It appears to me that we no longer live in the paleolithic but we behave as if we do. Allowing for the technology difference all of the 10 steps are evident in chimpanzee society.

Technology is the usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems or methods of organization.

It was not Bush who was corrupted, but the office of the president, and he’s not even the boss. Positions, an arbitrary term to describe offices to be filled by assholes, are asshole magnets. Get rid of the holder of that position, and there will be 100 assholes to take his place. It is not the position, but that there is a position. The position IS the hair whorl, not the occupant.

Charlie Chimp was a hominid roaming the savannah in the paleolithic. The society was simple, an alpha male would beat the other males about the head and shoulders to enforce subservience. If he got to be too much of a jerk they’d kill him and let someone else take over. Worked pretty well actually. Then the alpha male morphed into an ideology and the band morphed into a hyper-tribe. But we still behave as if we lived in the paleolithic. The savannah is swarming with rival bands and there is constant conflict. The grubs under the rocks are getting harder to find and the fruit isn’t as plentiful as it used to be. Other bands are shitting upstream making us sick. Instead of throwing rocks across the stream at a rival band, we face the prospect of throwing nukes across the ocean. ChimpWar AntWar

Laurie Santos looks for the roots of human irrationality by watching the way our primate relatives make decisions. A clever series of experiments in “monkeynomics” shows that some of the silly choices we make, monkeys make too

So what happened? Our intrepid band of chimps has been time warped into the present, bringing their survival skills with them. It is no longer the paleolithic but it’s the same society. The cohesion of the band has been lost. He no longer has a band to be loyal to. As he has evolved to live in a band of less than 150, the hyper-tribe is an abstraction. The lion has morphed into corporations to prey on him. He has evolved to be a slave. One thing that has not changed though, the hyper males that have taken over this system still get most of the poon-tang and bananas. As long as the hyper-males can keep the chimps fighting among themselves, this will continue.

Not just the colonizers, Mr Ted, but primates and possibly any social animal. There is nothing mystical about the amerind worldview. I don’t recall a homo lakota classification in anthropology. People mix cause and effect. Arabs and Bedouin are mortal enemies. The Arabs have the oil, so the arabs get the guns and are genociding bedouin. If the Bedouin had the oil, they would get the guns and would be genociding the arabs. And they are both aboriginal societies.

And before Mr Kirby gets his fur up, following standard primate policies, the arabs raped the women, killed the men and enslaved the children with the exception that sometimes the country was too large and they ruled the existing civilizations through the existing structure. Basically, North Africa is the Bedouin homeland.

Naomi’s ten step program. I think step 10 is upon us. The “problem” is that we are primates. Zeitgeist has it right on this.

1 Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy

2 Create a gulag

3 Develop a thug caste

4 Set up an internal surveillance system

5 Harass citizens’ groups

6 Engage in arbitrary detention and release

7 Target key individuals

8 Control the press

9 Dissent equals treason

10 Suspend the rule of law

Memories

Recovered memories

You will not like the images or the reality of what I am saying. Well, reality ain’t nice. You must recognize what the goal of this tribunal is. They don’t really care one way or the other whether she is possessed, a satanist or even a psychologist. Their goal is to frighten the peasants into submission. Privately, they probably think that the idea of possession is silly.

My, aren’t those charming fellows? We tend to forget what assholes people can be. And there is a new inquisition. A 21st Century inquisition. I’m going to explore this from a couple of angles. first focusing on the victim then on the inquisitor.

Ironically psyche is the root word for psychology, which seems to be dedicated to destroying the psyche, shooting the heretic up with smarticide. (at least they don’t shove a pole up your butt, that’s progress of a sort I suppose.) Psychology is the Inquisition of western civilization. In the case of education it is to ensure a compliant work force so as to enrich the capitalists. The church enforced love and harmony by burning heretics at the stake, or in the case of heathens, shoving said stake up the heart of their bottom. Smarticide is the modern day equivalent of the stake. It kills off your smarts.

Then there is the genius, schizophrenia, Bipolar, manic depressive which also gets the smarticide treatment. But then, I’m crazy, don’t you know?

And then there are the modern day inquisitors, using the court system to wield said metaphorical stake. The witch trials which started wit McMartin in LA and spread across the US in a “hysteria”. It wasn’t hysteria, follow the inquisitors, wherever the inquisitors went, that’s where the witches were. 3500 “ritual satanic child abuse” victims with 10,000 secondary victims in the past decade, and it’s still going on.

Consider Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, a fundamentalist christian who sees his god given mission in life as ridding the world of infidels. After scandals hit his large and lucrative firm, Prince ordered a curious rebranding that changed its name to Xe.X is an archaic form of abbreviation for Christ and/or Christian that was derived from the cross and the Greek Alphabet. X or Chi is the Greek letter that is the initial of “Christos” – X – which at the same time served as a symbol for the cross. Sometimes written Chi-Rho, (Xp) In the food chain Erik Prince outranks the president.

Or consider Janet Reno, who developed the “Miami Method” developing tactics to obtain a conviction without evidence or testimony. This method was further developed by AHEC at Wake Medical Center in Raleigh, NC, introducing the use of psycho-tropic drugs to interrogate children. The head of AHEC was a fundamentalist christian who staffed the 35 ahec centers with like minded persons who firmly believed that satan is alive and well, and active in NC day care centers. Her belief was that day care centers were the front for satanists needing children to melt down into baby candles. Oddly 35 cases of satanic ritual abuse were filed simultaneously in NC. Although Little Rascals got the most media attention, the most egresious case was in Asheville where a man was convicted of ritual satanic abuse. He had a castle inside his single wide trailer, with a moat surrounding it, filled with alligators and sharks. He took the children to the dungeon where he flew them into outer space to melt them down into baby candles. As a defense attorney pointed out “if this kind of stuff were going on, the landscape would be littered with dead babies”.

In the Little Rascals day-care-abuse case in North Carolina, one mother told reporters that it took 10 months before her child was able to “reveal” the molestation. No one at the time considered the idea that the child might have been remarkably courageous to persist in telling the truth for so long.” Carol Tavris 1

The methods used to obtain fraudulent convictions were seminared by Believe The Children, based out of Richmond, VA Obtained here > ReligiousTolerance

Ofra Bikel, at the time a vacationing journalist in NC, stumbled across the Little Rascals case and blew it wide open with her documentary “innocence lost” which got her the John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism.

Coordinating all of this was Mike Easley, who ordered that a conviction be obtained no matter what it took. Nancy Lamb, the prosecutator took it to heart and was doing the judge.

With this background in place I’ll get back to recovered memories. There is a critical period in a child’s life when he/she accepts whatever is told him/her as TRUTH.

Recovered memories? No, manufactured memories.

Within Without

Posted in Society with tags , , , , on August 28, 2010 by ellocogringo

InOut

When in Germany I ran into a type of statue which seemed to be in every small hamlet. It was of a man and woman back to back with swords drawn. Naked, of course. As I recall I only saw them in small towns. The were inscribed with within without in German. (interhalb außerhalb) I was told that they symbolized the western ideal of marriage, not christian, western. The wife’s role was to defend the family from the evil within, the husbands role was to defend the family from the evil without. I haven’t been able to find an image on the internet, which seems odd, they were as common as “Jesus Saves” signs in North Carolina.

The church had ordered they all be destroyed but they missed the smaller, out of the way hamlets. To those of you who think this is all ancient history, I would remind you that the last castrati died in 1912.

The image at top shows a couple in the swastika position, not in reference to nazi’s but the sanscrit symbol for luck.

Valedictorian

Spread far and wide

Down PDF below

*******************

Erica Goldson Valedictorian of Coxsackie-Athens High School. August, 2010

Here I stand

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, “If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years . .” The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast — How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?” Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contest that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him.But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared.

John Taylor Gatto, a retired school teacher and activist critical of compulsory schooling, asserts, “We could encourage the best qualities of youthfulness – curiosity, adventure, resilience, the capacity for surprising insight simply by being more flexible about time, texts, and tests, by introducing kids into truly competent adults, and by giving each student what autonomy he or she needs in order to take a risk every now and then. But we don’t do that.” Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not “to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States.”

To illustrate this idea, doesn’t it perturb you to learn about the idea of “critical thinking.” Is there really such a thing as “uncritically thinking?” To think is to process information in order to form an opinion. But if we are not critical when processing this information, are we really thinking? Or are we mindlessly accepting other opinions as truth?

This was happening to me, and if it wasn’t for the rare occurrence of an avant-garde tenth grade English teacher, Donna Bryan, who allowed me to open my mind and ask questions before accepting textbook doctrine, I would have been doomed. I am now enlightened, but my mind still feels disabled. I must retrain myself and constantly remember how insane this ostensibly sane place really is.

And now here I am in a world guided by fear, a world suppressing the uniqueness that lies inside each of us, a world where we can either acquiesce to the inhuman nonsense of corporatism and materialism or insist on change. We are not enlivened by an educational system that clandestinely sets us up for jobs that could be automated, for work that need not be done, for enslavement without fervency for meaningful achievement. We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us.

We are more than robotic bookshelves, conditioned to blurt out facts we were taught in school. We are all very special, every human on this planet is so special, so aren’t we all deserving of something better, of using our minds for innovation, rather than memorization, for creativity, rather than futile activity, for rumination rather than stagnation? We are not here to get a degree, to then get a job, so we can consume industry-approved placation after placation. There is more, and more still.

The saddest part is that the majority of students don’t have the opportunity to reflect as I did. The majority of students are put through the same brainwashing techniques in order to create a complacent labor force working in the interests of large corporations and secretive government, and worst of all, they are completely unaware of it. I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

For those of you out there that must continue to sit in desks and yield to the authoritarian ideologies of instructors, do not be disheartened. You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, “You have to learn this for the test” is not good enough for you.Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades.

For those of you that work within the system that I am condemning, I do not mean to insult; I intend to motivate. You have the power to change the incompetencies of this system. I know that you did not become a teacher or administrator to see your students bored. You cannot accept the authority of the governing bodies that tell you what to teach, how to teach it, and that you will be punished if you do not comply. Our potential is at stake.

For those of you that are now leaving this establishment, I say, do not forget what went on in these classrooms. Do not abandon those that come after you. We are the new future and we are not going to let tradition stand. We will break down the walls of corruption to let a garden of knowledge grow throughout America. Once educated properly, we will have the power to do anything, and best of all, we will only use that power for good, for we will be cultivated and wise. We will not accept anything at face value. We will ask questions, and we will demand truth.

So, here I stand. I am not standing here as valedictorian by myself. I was molded by my environment, by all of my peers who are sitting here watching me. I couldn’t have accomplished this without all of you. It was all of you who truly made me the person I am today. It was all of you who were my competition, yet my backbone. In that way, we are all valedictorians.

I am now supposed to say farewell to this institution, those who maintain it, and those who stand with me and behind me, but I hope this farewell is more of a “see you later” when we are all working together to rear a pedagogic movement. But first, let’s go get those pieces of paper that tell us that we’re smart enough to do so!

Flobots

here is a war going on for your minds

 

Media mavens mount surgical strikes from trapper
keeper collages and online magazine racks
Cover girl cutouts throw up pop-up ads
infecting victims with silicone shrapnel

Worldwide passenger pigeons deploy paratroopers
Now it’s raining pornography
Lovers take shelter
Post-production debutantes pursue you in Nascar chariots

They construct ransom letters from biblical passages and
bleed mascara into the holy water supplies

There’s a war going on for your mind

Industry insiders slang test tube babies to corporate crack heads
They flash logos and blast ghettos
Their embroidered neckties say “Stop Stitching”
Conscious rappers and whistle blowers get stitches made
of acupuncture needles and marionette strings

There is a war going on for your mind

Professional wrestlers and vice presidents want
you to believe them
The desert sky is their blue screen
They superimpose explosions
They shout at you
“Pay no attention to the men behind the barbed curtain
Nor the craters beneath the draped flags
Those hoods are there for your protection
And meteors these days are the size of corpses”

We are the insurgents

There is a war going on for your mind

Sheeple

Are you people really that stupid? Do you really think that voting democrat or republican makes a difference? Just get “them” out of power and “we” will go to conservative or liberal heaven? Can’t you realize you are livestock? Can’t you see that periodically you get sheared and go back to the pasture naked? You are being harvested. The RD money pump takes another stroke and and you go back to the pasture naked to grow more wool. Can’t you see what the money grubbing scum are doing to the planet? Do you really think you can tweak what exists and everything will be OK? Do you really think that “leaving it in gods hands” will work”? Well it won’t. We are going over the cliff and you can’t even see it. The system isn’t the problem. You are!

The Lotus Eaters

Lotus

“An idiot by any other name, would be as dumb” – eLG

**************************

Mythology In Greek mythology, the lotus-eaters (Greek λωτοφάγοι, lōtophagoi), also referred to as the lotophagi or lotophaguses (singular lotophagus, pronounced /ləˈtɒfəɡəs/) or lotophages (singular lotophage, pronounced /ˈloʊtəfeɪdʒ/), were a race of people from an island near North Africa dominated by lotus plants. The lotus fruits and flowers were the primary food of the island and were narcotic and addictive, causing the people to sleep in peaceful apathy.

The lotus eaters by Alfred Tennyson

The mariners are put into an altered state when they eat the lotos. During this time, they are isolated from the world:[4]

The mariners explain that they want to leave reality and their worldly cares:[4]

The mariners demonstrate that they realize what actions they are committing and the potential results that will follow, but they believe that

Although the mariners are isolated from the world, they are connected in that they act in unison. This relationship continues until the very end

Yup, he’s talking about idiot’s alright. Particularly this line “they are connected in that they act in unison”. This, as far as I can see, is about 80% of the population. So eating lotus pedals is the same as the modern “Drinking the Kool-Aid” becoming a firm believer in something: accepting an argument or philosophy wholeheartedly or blindly. The term originated with the Jonestown Massacre,

For disambiguation I include the following from wikipedia

An idiot, dolt, or dullard is a mentally deficient person, or someone who acts in a self-defeating or significantly counterproductive way. More humorous synonyms of the term include addlehead, blockhead, bonehead, deadhead, dimwit, dodo, dope, dummy, dunderhead, nincompoop, ninny, nitwit, numbskull, stupidhead, thickhead, and twit, among many others. Archaically the word mome has also been used. The synonymous terms moron, imbecile, and cretin have all gained specialized meanings in modern times. An idiot is said to be idiotic, and to suffer from idiocy. A dunce is an idiot who is specifically incapable of learning. An idiot differs from a fool (who is unwise) and an ignoramus (who is uneducated/ an ignorant), neither of which refer to someone with low intelligence.

I would like to add to this list, terms I have heard to describe idiots; stupidos, parrots, zombies, golems, 2d, hollow, second-handers, superficialists, normals, hipostatized or in more general terms ideologists. I prefer the traditional word idiot, however, We are, after all, striving to be professionals, and not pejorative.

Stupidity

Posted in Society with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2010 by ellocogringo

Stupid

Alas, I feel it’s too late. A collapse seems inevitable. I think that the best that can be hoped for is to have a cadre of non-idiots in place to lead man back from the abyss. Either that or cross your fingers and hope for a 100th monkey phenomenon. Of course, there is the internet, which is new. “Nodes of sanity” are beginning to appear (your site being one) TED is totally awesome. EVOS, Whole Brain, timelessness forever, Non-duality center. But they are so depressingly few.

I feel that the bigger problem is stupidity. If your “standing wave” concept gains traction, that’s nice, I guess. But it doesn’t matter if there’s no one around to appreciate it. And if people weren’t stupid, they could figure it out for themselves. It’s simple enough.

I have little interest in math or physics per se. to my way of thinking math is an artificial quantification of an interpretation of a perception. If the math and reality agree, that’s nice. But the math doesn’t prove the physics, the physics proves the math. (people think backwards)

I have spent my life trying to figure out why people are dumb and am probably the only person in the world who understands how the mind works.

Technology has enabled stupid people to do stupid things for stupid reasons that have led to a situation where civilization itself is very fragile. “Stupid is as stupid does” – Forrest Gump. There are so many ways for this to occur that I don’t know where to begin.

<Are you going to help?>

Sure, if I can. Haven’t been very successful though. I went into reclusion 15 years ago so I wouldn’t have to deal with idiots on more than a superficial level. My brother turned me in for a psych evaluation because he found my mind to be a “whirlwind of delusions” (stuff like matter is an illusion and the universe is composed of vibrations) I had to leave NC to avoid it. But it followed me to Birmingham. (if I refuse “treatment” I loose my medical coverage) I arrive here and sign into the VA. So here I am, a 70 year old guy with HOCM, statin poisoning and an aeorotic aneurism on a walker, and the triage nurse says “ we’ll set you up for the psychological screening, a neurologist, psychologist, psychiatrist, then run a battery of psychological tests.” (no cardiologist, no lipid specialist etc.) So I go see the neurologist who set me up for a bunch of tests. Then the psychologist., the enigmatic DrB. She wasn’t an idiot. You have no idea what a joy it is to be able to transfer a concept from my mind to another, effortlessly, and be challenged on it, on valid grounds. She canceled the remainder of the tests and we began collaborating on how to get the information out. So far we’ve got 3 papers outlined, a speaking invitation, I’m writing a book and have started a website. I don’t think that’s bad for 3 months.

Oops! I slipped a decimal point, it turns out there are 210,000 people in the US capable of understanding your concept, if they are interested. That only leaves about 300 million idiots. There, now don’t you feel better? It’s not nearly as bad as you thought.

What to do? Dunno.

Inscrutible

Inscrutable; difficult or impossible to
comprehend, fathom or interpret

Yet another misinterpreted study. This is only an example of how a flawed answer is derived from a “belief ” rather than a fact. The false belief is that FACS (Facial Action Coding System) applies to humans instead of only occidentals. Using FACS the study concluded that orientals looked at the eyes to determine facial expression. WRONG. The orientals were looking at the eyes because they could not recognize the culturally imposed expressions of the occidentals, so went to the eyes, which are more physiological. (Eye movements are the same) IE orientals think that occidentals are inscrutable.
They are just as expressive as occidentals, just different. Even when speaking English, they can be difficult to understand. Singlish uses a Hokkien sentence structure, in which some words are understood. For instance the words in the following exchange which are in () are understood but not spoken.
“(give me) S$5 (for this item)”
“Cannot (give you S$5), lah lah means roughly “back at you”
“Cannot, lah!” seems weird to an American, unless you understand that redundant words are omitted.
See Coxford Singlish Dictionary below.

I ran across the results of a study that concluded that brassieres cause cancer. That seemed odd, so I continued reading. They observed that orientals had a much lower breast cancer rate than blacks or occidentals. They had concluded that the reason was that orientals could not afford brassieres. The conclusion was that brassieres prevented the breasts from swinging impeding the ebb and flow of “natural juces”. What a crock of shit.

Orientals, unlike Africans and occidentals are flat chested unless actually nursing. IE they ain’t got no titties to get cancer in. Big boobs, are in fact an affectation, they serve no useful purpose unless in use, except for attracting men. As an aside, This is quite a problem in Singapore, where the population is westernized and there is a huge number of breast augmentation procedures, else they all wear falsies. This causes a lot of anxiety. More here

Chinese porn is weird in that they don’t actually show anything. The picture on the left is considered highly erotic. And Japanese get off on Anime porn. Weird. That’s not actually the porn, I’m not going to put that crap up here. If you’re interested do a search on hentai.

Another weirdness is that orientals have a different color spectrum. (the colors in a rainbow are different) and an occidentals spectrum is blue deficient. (the whitening agent in soap powder is actually blue dye) What an occidental sees as white, an oriental sees as blue. Orientals see only 3 colors in a rainbow, occidentals see six. I haven’t found anything on this.

Need to make sure our “facts” are not beliefs. Be sure to check out that second link (psurg). The left (before) is normal for an oriental. The right (after) is African style boobie implants. Yup, they even have different types. (both the occidental/african and implants) check the links if you’re curious.

The year of the mama grizzly

Posted in Society with tags , , , , , , , on June 10, 2010 by ellocogringo

 

Grizzly

We are witnessing the emergence of the were-mom, as across the land soccer moms are turning into mama grizzlies. There is nothing so ferocious as a grizzly defending her cubs. The unconsidered dynamic is that females have primacy and society is going to go wherever they want it to go. Males are being reduced to the natural order of things, providers of genetic diversity via sperm, fighting among themselves for the privilege of the occasional coupling. If a cataclysm were to occur and the population reduced to 100 males and one female man would go extinct. If the proportion were reversed we would have a viable population within a couple of generations. The foundation of society is shifting under our feet, marriage boycott, tea party, gay rights long entrenched encumbents falling before the onslaught.

“There is something happenin’ out there — on college campuses, at Tea Party and 9/12 meetings, in school board and city council races, inside and outside the political arena. Everywhere I go, right-thinking moms who had never been involved in politics before have come up to me to let me know that their increasing concern for their kids’ future — their safety, their education, their debt — has driven them to get involved. ” – Michelle Malkin

Sarah Palin is the formost of these mama grizzlies, described by the media as a pit bull with lipstick. They wish it were that innocuous. Palin

Consider another recent development, the emergence of the cougar, the successful female executive cruising the bars for boy toys. Don’t you feel the earth move? Type zero

Polyandry

Spin

Maternal inheritance, epigenetics and the evolution of polyandry

This puts a whole new spin on what is happening in society. What does this mean for civilization? This civilization is developing into serial polyandry. See “The man who isn’t there”

Speaking of spin, did you know that the sperm has a rotary joint? Weird, Huh?

Jeanne A. Zeh1 and David W. Zeh

Polyandry (Greek: poly- many, andros– man) refers to a form of sexual union, in which a woman is married to two or more husbands at the same time. The form of polyandry in which a woman is married to two or more brothers is known as “fraternal polyandry”, and it is believed by many anthropologists to be the most frequently encountered form.

http://www.springerlink.com/content/1h52m8587323640k/

Abstract Growing evidence indicates that females actively engage in polyandry either to avoid genetic incompatibility or to bias paternity in favor of genetically superior males. Despite empirical support for the intrinsic male quality hypothesis, the maintenance of variation in male fitness remains a conundrum for traditional “good genes” models of sexual selection. Here, we discuss two mechanisms of non-Mendelian inheritance, maternal inheritance of mitochondria and epigenetic regulation of gene expression, which may explain the persistence of variation in male fitness traits important in post-copulatory sexual selection. The inability of males to transmit mitochondria precludes any direct evolutionary response to selection on mitochondrial mutations that reduce or enhance

male fitness. Consequently, mitochondrial-based variation in sperm traits is likely to persist, even in the face of intense sperm competition. Indeed, mitochondrial nucleotide substitutions, deletions and insertions are now known to be a primary cause of low sperm count and poor sperm motility in humans. Paradoxically, in the field of sexual selection, female-limited response to selection has been largely overlooked. Similarly, the contribution of epigenetics (e.g., DNA methylation, histone modifications and non-coding RNAs) to heritable variation in male fitness has received little attention from evolutionary theorists. Unlike DNA sequence based variation, epigenetic variation can be strongly influenced by environmental and stochastic effects experienced during the lifetime of an individual. Remarkably, in some cases, acquired epigenetic changes can be stably transmitted to offspring. A recent study indicates that sperm exhibit particularly high levels of epigenetic variation both within and between individuals. We suggest that such epigenetic variation may have important implications for post-copulatory sexual selection and may account for recent findings linking sperm competitive ability to offspring fitness.

Plato

Plato

DrB-17

Plato’s Cave

“Plato imagines a group of people who have lived chained in a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall by things passing in front of a fire behind them, and begin to ascribe forms to these shadows. According to Plato, the shadows are as close as the prisoners get to seeing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall are not constitutive of reality at all, as he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners.” – Wikipedia

Impressive dude, specially when you consider that his p-truth was that the elements were earth, wind, fire and water. How many p-truths have there been since then? 118 as of last count, and I’m sure there will be more. The present periodic table is not TRUTH, it is only the most recent p-truth. (best answer to date) Throughout history every TRUTH has proven to be an n-truth, and always will be I suspect.

As to the cave; in reality that is all we can see, the shadows on the wall. Like radio waves, there is something there but we can’t see it. Yet the radio works. Like vectors (vibrations) in the 4th dimension. There is SOMETHING there but we can’t see it. Yet the universe exists.

The Scientific Method precludes us ever finding out.

I’m not putting down reductionist thinking. I’m putting down the “Scientific Method”, (using reductionist thinking to seek truth) reductionist thinking is not appropriate for creativity. You’ve got to go outside the box to find new “truths”. I use reductionist thinking almost exclusively. DNA control, for instance. Then here come epigenitics, OK, reset my algorithm and move on. Only if i am interested in something do I switch. Like trying to figure out why other people are dumb. Or what can be done to help my grandson (genetic problem) I am not interested what conventional truth is in these cases. Conventional wisdom says nothing can be done. I must go outside the box. And anytime I go outside the box I find BS triumphant. Most scientists are idiots. I have pointed out to you the only ones I have found that were not. And I’ve been looking for 6 months. Disappointing. Basically I think that people operate at three levels; scientist, engineer, technician. At the scientist level you have people like da Vinci, Einstein, Heisenburg, Hawkings, Plato, etc. At the engineer level are the people capable of understanding the scientist who can translate his concepts into action. At the techinician level are the people who can understand the problems involved and impliment effective action. These three groups comprise, at most, 10% of the population, the rest being idiots and assholes. BUT THIS IS A CHOICE. Anyone can operate at whichever level they wish. An asshole chooses his own material goal over his emotional well being, The idiot doesn’t care.

Cucold

Towards a Type Zero Civilization

 

Cucold – The females of certain varieties of cuckoo lay their eggs in other bird’s nests, freeing themselves from the need to nurture the eggs to hatching

Civilization can be classified by the synergy between man and woman. In a type 1 civilization (Mid-east) there is no synergy between man and woman and so cannot be properly classified as a valid civilization. The woman has no worth – Value =1 Purdah In a type 2 civilization (Western) the womans worth is added to the man’s – Value = 2. In a type 3 civilization(Oriental), this synergy is recognized with a added worth value of one Value = 3 In a type 4 civilization both men and women are recognized as having complimentary synergy. This has not existed since the paleolithic. I am unaware of any such. Value = 4 We appear to be going into a type 0 civilization, IE neither man nor woman has worth. This is NO civilization.

The Fifth Horseman

The bible skipped one. The fifth horseman is cukoldry. Strictly speaking, a cuckold is a married man with an adulterous wife, but current usage sometimes extends the term informally to include cuckqueans (women with adulterous husbands) – wikipedia I want to extend that term to include the state. We are entering a society of serial polygamy in which the state encourages and enforces a non-synergy between man and woman. Rather than build toward synergy, it destroys it. Why is this important? Because it’s why men marry. If a man cannot be certain he is not raising someone elses child, he is a cuckold. There is no point in marriage, or even pairing up with a single woman. It will be a Mad Max world.

Marriage Boycott

Stephen Baskerville, Ph.D., political science teacher at Howard University, gives his take on the growing marriage boycott by men.

Doctor Baskerville states, “men themselves express a weightier explanation of why they fear marriage: For many men, starting a family is a one-way ticket to jail, and even worse.” How sad and how true. He also states, “Portraying marriage as a man’s ball-and-chain used to be a joke. Now, it is a political problem.” I would add that it is also a societal problem that is accompanied by a dangerous rate of population collapse.

Women are married to the state. They obtain their defense, their income, and other privileges from the state. Men are subjects of the state and, therefore, subjects of women because women are married to the state and are one in the same. Men are, therefore, subjugated by both the state and women and rebel against the same by refusing to be further subjugated by the state and women by refusing to marry women who, in fact, are already married to the state. It makes both ethical and practical sense, therefore,for males not to get married. The same factors, however, will clearly destroy the state as social cohesion, the “social contract”, in the form of marriage, is requisite for the state to exist. Women’s marriage to the state and women’s and the state’s subjection of men will, therefore, destroy the state. Simple logic!

Like the complete walkout that has been talked about for several years, just a complete and utter ‘walk-away’, not just a silly “marriage boycott”, but walk away from the jobs, the armed forces, every social, public, paid, unpaid, job that men do`” This is another side, a push for gay rights. Prop 8

My, this is disturbing. Where is this trend heading?

Synergy

Synergy

Consider the caveman family. Charlie Chimp, mate Polly Protohuman and offspring Pebbles. Charlie arises when he hears a sound outside the cave. He grabs his spear and rushes to the mouth of the cave. This is as it should be, an immediate response to an imminent danger. The male viewpoint is dominant, as it should be in the Neolithic. Charlie’s mind races as he contemplates what evil menace lurks outside. Could it be a lion, a dragon, a cave bear, a demon, a pack of wolves. Or maybe that most dreaded beast of all the Stanford Psychologist. Or maybe its a Harvard Psychologist with a sub in philosophy. His mind races to overload in considering the terrible monsters which may lurk outside, or in which combination, or maybe all of them. This will later be called reductionist thinking, the scientific method. He starts with the solution (spear) and works his way back to the problem (danger). A devious, tortuous byzantine labyrinth of illogic.

Polly calls from the back of the cave “Chill out, big boy, pebbles just went outside to take a leak” This is also as it should be, targeted insight into a specific problem. (Charlie had to remove tab A from slot B to grab his spear, she’s still horny) to effect a solution, (get Charlie back under the bearskin). To Polly, it is simple.

Charlie starts with the answer and works his way back to the question.

Polly starts with the question and works her way forward to the answer.

Together they have resolved the problem in the safest and most efficient manner and they can get back to the business at hand, the only business which has any importance in the greater scheme of things. Making Pebbles II.

But we no longer live in the neolithic.

This male viewpoint has dominated science throughout history. While perfectly appropriate for the hard sciences, Math, Geometry, Physics, Cosmology, Football, it is totally inadequate for the soft sciences. Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology, etc. The soft sciences are not sciences, they are more akin to art and not amenable to reductionist reasoning.

“Women, who can understand them?” No male, they’re not supposed to.

“Men just aren’t sensitive” They are not supposed to be.
