some lessons for life

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

7. Never lick a steak knife.

8. You will never find anybody who can give you a compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

9. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

10. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

11 A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice person.  (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

12. Your friends love you anyway.

13. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

14. Thought for the day: Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes, and it's up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into someone you can have dinner with.

I am still waiting for

I am still waiting for somebody to figure out why I keep on talking about "society" and psychopaths, whereas everybody else only talks about the psychopaths.

What context does a psychopath operate (survive and prosper) in?

Is a psychopath a predator?

What was the reason for society to be formed, in the first times, one of the main reasons? Could one reason have protection from predators, and assembly of concentrated force of numbers to withstand predation better?

Since the formation, and complexification of tribe into larger society, what has happened to the danger eg posed to little ones or the innocent of any age, the weak or slow in mind or body, after  the removal of wild lions, leopards and poisonous creatures lurking outside the village and occasionally venturing within?

What has society done, or, what has happened within the tribe?

Every niche that was originally kept outside, now exists within. And the human brain and body, being a plastic (adaptable) creature has developed strains and variations to exist and thrive within every niche available.

Is a strain a subspecie? How much variation is required to split a species into sub species? And if the difference is more behavioural, and less morphological, what then?

Society is now the wider environment. The tribe needs to split into smaller, closer units to withstand predation. Society requires us to adhere to wider society using laws, states, institutions, religions, and all of these oppose the smaller family or clan societal unit as an autonomous regime. That is revealing.

One of the features of nonlearity, chaos as some call it, is that as complexity increases, bifurcation into smaller fractals occurs. This is a universal feature of nonlinearity in all things.

Above all, psychopaths fear identification. The cure for this is a smaller sea for the shark to swim in, among smaller fish. The smaller unit in society is the memesis of corruption, and predation, which is why the leaders of society resist local power rising. They have no protection of their anomynity when displaced into smaller groups, and psychopaths form larger groups, gangs, armies, monarchies, empires.

These larger groups depend, as Mr Fix reminds constantly, upon authority, it's perception, and acceptance. Which authority, and it's umbrella of attractions overcome and replaces individual responsibility, intelligence, strength and agility. All those things that back in proto history were exactly what saved an individual from the predator.

The fractal exists both in proportions (of society), and in complexity, and over time - for all of the existence of humanity.

The cure, is smaller units for society, which are unfortunately more vulnerable to succumb on occasions when greater external force brought to bear. We need small units, which an cluster together when required, and disperse again when the immediate need subsides. But the organizers of the larger units, well they have a different perception of what is good and best. They adapt to their greater position, in society, and like that position. As long as they can choose to wield force nothing will change.

So psychopathy will disappear spontaneously after the ability of leaders to wield force is removed once a threat has subsided.

Look at the history of external threats, national states of emergency for verification of this. The key step forwards, is when small societal units figure out how to remove ideological states of emergency from perception and rule. It has always been so. With no advantage from power (that can no longer be retained after it's reason to exist has disappeared), and with shrinking societal units the mind and body of the psychopath must adapt to alternative niches.

the psychopath

is no more a predator than society.

The exploitation of a resource drives the evolutionary dynamic.

All that happens is meant to be. The dance of life goes on.

Perceived or real threats

Perceived or real threats shift the sweet spot rightwards and up the red curve. Perceived safety and lack of dire need allow society to slide downwards along the blue curve. The gap between the curves id the freedom and rights of individuality suppressed by authority wielded by psychopathic types.

This structure exists in financial markets also.

White

White,  Just Lots of White.  Almost looks like a wordpress template

Lots of Hondurans.  Splashing in Rivers. Big, scary pictures too.  I almost feel like my hometown is going to be flooded with Hondurans soon.    How many millions of immigrants crossed the border without any news coverage?   Suddenly, every few months we have a caravan of dark skin people crossing the borders all being followed by camera's, an opportunity to talk about immigration once again.  I think this is one of those times you're supposed to ask yourself why are we seeing this story now?  

LOTS of money.   1 billion dollars and counting MEGA Lottery.   I almost feel like this is a sign from the God's.  It's also a hidden tax, that people will willingly hand over to the state.  Including my four dollars.  You know, a dollar and a dream..  Probably some record and some big cycle up here.  I hear everybody talking about what they are going to do if they win the lottery.   That goes in to.  

Well, it seems all these changes are well timed as my life direction/north node is being blasted by Pluto and the universes is saying time to change. And it looks like the same forces in different variations are pushing change in the world.  I'm sort of in awe of what's going on above and it's power to create change.   Here too. 

It might be time to start thinking about gold again.  Something feels right about now.

if you win the lottery (biggest in U.S. history)

The current Mega Millions jackpot is predicted to be the largest lottery prize in US history.

1.6 billion.

The least you could do is get some colours for Turd and shout us all a beer.

Well hell, paint my butt red and call me a baboon

Go ahead, I dare you. At least we'd have some red.  Maybe I'll get an avatar of a probosis monkey and change my blog handle to Durante.

My name is out for anyone to read.  Do not come by mi casa selling Watchtower, Fuller Brushes or Encyclopedias   We're all full up here and I might want to discuss religion. Besides which, the Mormon Church is 4 blocks up the road and they got  HeyZeus covered.

So, this is the new site. Hmmmmm.  Might take some getting used to.  Is there an edit button in case we need to scrub stupid stuff or speling errors?   I need walk around the joint and get a feel for what is going on.  Has the new car smell but not the new car feel

Uh, I found the edit button

Hey Green Lantern   Good to see you back from your accidental foray into  "No Man's Land"    Safe and sound.  Be sure to check for ticks and bed bugs.  Meet any white walkers in the north kingdom?

Lotteries   California got that addiction once they figgered out how to get rid of the mob and allow casino gambling.  Gummints cannot stand gambling unless they're running the scam. Fleece the sheep and have them love the experience.  Who needs meth when you got lotteries

When Schwartzenbeggar was elected governor of CA way back in early 2000's  he said he didn't want slots in CA.  The tribes had a powwow with Ahnold at their hogan and told him how the bison eats the cabbage.  Plus a few million into his campaign.  Whah-lah, Tonto got his casinos.  And CA gets the vig from every machine. This from a man who doinked his maid, produced a son who looked like a latino terminator and his wife Maria couldn't figure that one out.  Until she did.  What a pack of effing morons.

Why not take over the numbers racquet?   Give 3% to educating the ignorant little twerps in jail schools. Keep half for the  rake and toke.  Give the rest to some bone head who's only claim to fame is they spent $1 for a ticket.  Then take half of the winnings back in taxes. 

 Meh. 

Anyone know if they have a lottery outlet in Reno? I feel lucky---and sschtupid today.

Well, from this post it is clear that we have different viewpoints. You approach this primarily relating to the nature of society while I consider psychopaths to be biologically defective, irrespective of the society they inhabit. BTW: Criminal psychopaths do not fear recognition nor in my book do any psychopaths since they do not know fear, it's an emotion!

EDIT: Reply to #107, well there's a glitch.

Material reductionism and psychopathy....

I believe it is  of the greatest misdiagnosis to consider a psychopath to be biologically defective.

This works from the false premise that our thoughts and emotions originate within our own body, when it can be demonstrated that our bodies are just reacting to our thoughts and emotions, which originated in spirit.

Science teaches us that our thoughts and emotions originate in our brain. This is a completely false premise.

The brain is simply an interdimensional transceiver that connects the human body to its spiritual essence or source.

The science shows that a psychopath is quite biologically normal. What is different, is that mechanisms that would normally be utilized in both the experience and expression of fear and empathy, are simply not utilized by their spirit.

It is often said that we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

A psychopath is an entirely different kind of spiritual being, utilizing the exact same kind of meat body that we all interact in our world with, but is incapable of experiencing or expressing the thoughts and emotions associated with fear or empathy.

If the thoughts and emotions associated with empathy are a very human characteristic,

Then it would be fair to say that a psychopath is not human.  At least not at its source.

Biologically, there is no difference between a psychopath and a  human,

But energetically speaking, which is the source of who we are, there is a very profound difference.

You will never be able to find the difference by comparing the physical structures, but you can find the difference by measuring electrical activity at specific points in the brain and body.

Modern medicine could make this differentiation if it wanted to, through use of a MRI, or one of those silly skullcaps with all the wires hooked to it determining electrical activity.

A shaman or a clairvoyant can make such determination by mere observation. 

These areas are never explored, because it would expose psychopathy, in a system owned and operated by psychopaths.

And once again,

Putting these creatures in charge, or putting anyone in charge  over others for that matter is a really stupid idea.

That's the one humanity has to get over.

We also have to abandon the notion that such a solution is too idealistic, because until the only solution becomes something that can actually be implemented, humanity is doomed to be a slave race wholly owned by  a race of beings that are not human.

And society will never advance beyond the owners and the owned. This is permanent and perpetual human enslavement guaranteed.

Fuck authority, rule yourself. angel

I did like what Argentus Maximus had to say about the size of government, in relation to this topic, but it isn't so much useful in identifying psychopaths with a smaller hierarchical structure, the key difference, is actually holding them accountable for their crimes against humans.

These massive hierarchical constructs that we live under, are specifically designed so that no one is ever actually held accountable for anything.

On a much smaller, and more local scale, it is still fairly easy to hold a lying sack of shit accountable for his crimes.

This is the real reason for the push for global governance, rule with impunity, without any accountability.

A psychopaths dream. cheeky

Tonight's playlist

Wise Cosmos The “Philosophy of Freedom”, also titled in other translations as “Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path” and “The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity”, is Rudolf Steiner’s foundational philosophical work. Part One explores the basis for freedom in human thinking, gives an account of the relationship between knowledge and perception, and explores the reliability of thinking as a means to knowledge. Part Two analyzes the conditions necessary for freedom of action and develops a moral philosophy Steiner describes as "ethical individualism". Lecture by Brian Gray, former Director of the Foundation Program in Anthroposophy at Rudolf Steiner College, Fair Oaks, CA.

Psychopath, natural law,

Psychopath, natural law, consciousness.... We all seem to be carrying around different definitions and understanding of these things and find it difficult to understand what the other guy means when he uses these concepts.  Many times, we're just not talking about the same thing.  

We now have multiple definitions of psychopathy some with complete "occult" influences, their social role, their biological factors etc... And I gave some more depth psychological archetypical factors. 

I haven't seen an argument that actually addresses AM's delineation of the dynamic.  I don't have one to make because it seems pretty good to me.  

Society clearly accepts the narratives authorities give it and some without question.   The SAudi Arabian story is ridiculous.  Complete lack of effort by Saudi and US Trump government to come up with a good narrative.   I feel we're living in a time of backward evolution although I know that's not the case.  They are using the Hondurian story to herd us-BIG TIME.  Watching that story on a tv in a public place, I downloaded a tv remote for my cell phone and turned it to a spanish soap opera.  My body twitches and gets nausea at how fear waves are spread through the tv.   But it takes and it takes big time.  There is no talking people out of overt propoganda and the continual pumping up of people who are stoned on power.   

What is there like a 1/2 dozen of us or less who actually question the Trump narratives?   He's brilliant at tweaking the narrative but these are overt forms for in your face propaganda.   Is this about China in Honduras throwing tons of money?

What if this Khashoggi murder is something else

what if the killing of a WAPO journalist was not MBS trying to silence a critic. What if it was not some rogue element in the upper tier of SA's intelligence apparatus deciding to bring the king the head of Thomas A'Becket.

What if it was a direct attack on WAPO and it's owner Jeff Bezos, done by MBS at the behest of one of trump's lieutenants.  Trump and MBS got very chummy right after POTUS was sworn in   All touchy with the glowing globe and all.  The Petrodollar must remain king.  A reporter's death serves two purposes.  Put the fear in Bezos and get right of some one with inside knowledge of 9-11.

 Bezos and WAPO have been on Trump since mid 2016, ramping up with the PROPORNOT fake news 200 that was designed to discredit the alternative news media, of which some of us are part.  WAPO has been a thorn in Trump's side for nearly 2 years. 

Now WAPO is kind of friendly towards Trump and is radio silent on the killing of one of their own. One story is that Bezos has a newly formed $500 million information web sharing business agreement with MBS and SA and does not want to criticize his partners. 

Maybe, but what's $500 million to someone worth $150 billion and $50 billion in DOD web services?  SA contracts are a rounding error. 

I think Bezos sees the message.  "We can get to your boy so easily it was ridiculous"  15 operators to beat down one chubby reporter?  Really? That's the best excuse?  And a couple of mid level generals cashiered for being part of that scam.  Hells bells, generals are little more than glorified coffee servers to MBS and Trump.  When they say jump the general says  "How high, Sir!"

What if the killing was done by even the Mossad or some of its operators and made to look like SA? Israel and SA are tight right now so that's not likely but Mossad would have been read in on this.

  Jared seemed non-plussed by the whole thing.  Trump's being pretty diplomatic about it even thought the left is frothing at the mouth that Trump's screws this up.  Maybe they can make the case that he's got a Saudi collusion to go along with the Russian one

Trump's got $100 billion in SA miliary contracts that will not be touched.   Whoever conspired to commit murder might be moot right now even after the alleged  arrests of 15-18 of the co-conspirators.  

A bigger question might be.  For whom else might this murder be a warning?  Twitter, Facebook, Google et al. They are not playing cricket with conservative groups.  The $50 billion net worth baby boys running these tech info giants might need a big box of Depends right now.  

This is just a guess or or two but Trump said he's getting comfortable with being president.  In my mind that's code for getting comfortable having inconvenient people killed and using murder as a message service   Obama wasn't 6 month's in office when he started droning people, even admitting he kind of liked the fact that he could kill people indiscriminately.  I told a friend he'd developed a taste for blood and that person agreed.  He also had the credentials to know that statement was accurate.

Trump's no different, only it might be taking him a little longer to get comfortable with that program.  He might have been talking to Madeline Albright and read a bit about Hillary from her dossiers.  There are few people most cold bloodedly ruthless than those two women, either of whom could see the deaths of 500,000 people as  a bit of statistical collateral damage if it furthered their  career promotions and US interests

Kind of an inverse to the old saying   You provide the pictures, I'll provide the war

"You provide the dead reporter, I'll provide the story"

Now would that be a Hu-Man spirit that is defective or would it be a demonic that has taken residence? Also how is it "demonstrated that our bodies are just reacting to our thoughts and emotions, which originated in spirit" rather than just being an assertion?
