Video: James Fallon, psychopathy and the dead amygdala

Is this an old drum? Yes, it’s made of human skin. Deal with it.

We’re going into virgin ground, it’s going to be creepy. You’re used to it with me, with me, the questions get asked and nobody can say I’m braindead, at least. We’re trying, here.

Cut to 14 minutes in if you already know who this is.
Limbic system generally, deep cortex, and the amygdala structure referenced first.

This is intentional. From a lecturer, order matters.

Reader, pretending to care:


“It’s not something you can get used to”
louder for the naive psychopath worshipers at the back.
You cannot train it, it’s dead.
“It’s, it’s – The first part that develops, the cortex, in an infant”
“Before puberty: They’re full of emotion, or full of- morality.”

You might note similarities in the way he expresses himself, and the way I express myself.
Academese, mon amis.

He means there is only id and superego, devil and angel, “the orbital cortex is intimately connected to the amygdala…”
“In a psychopath, there is NO SENSE OF MORAL REASONING.”
So you can’t be moral and use psychopathic techniques.
It’s physically, biologically impossible.
You don’t get to claim to be a cool-headed psycho, but also a really nice, prosocial guy with a strong moral compass.
They have NO principles, that IS their principle.
Everything is totally, 100% selfish.
There are “impulsive” people with weak orbital cortex (DS: need training) that shut off “but they know what they’re doing is wrong.” Hedonists, this is very important. That is why they hide it, the personal and professional splinter, that dissociate compartmentalization. It also preserves the ego, as well as public persona.
In psychopaths, ‘morality’ doesn’t connect as something to countenance, it literally isn’t anywhere in their head.
They can predict other people probably care, but this is if you ask, if you plant the seed and make them think, referring to the hypotheticals of the interactions they’ve had with neurotypicals.
“A kid is really moral, oftentimes, hypermoral.”
I can see where he’s going but fear of punishment, a little different.
Naturally, he can’t see the difference.
Children have a strong sense (moral absolutism) because they are so weak and helpless. They see it clearly, good/evil and don’t rationalize excuses to be a shitty person like adults often do to ‘save face’, in part because no one would listen anyway. They’re not allowed excuses, only to obey the rules.
Where it’s “turned off” is epigenetic switching.
A psychopath has no instinct for what’s right. A latent psychopath still doesn’t, but they’re less inclined to act out, the
so-called successful sociopath. They can comply with the right authorities.

“Ethics is the rules of the game, psychopaths really know the rules of the game. They understand what you think and can therefore, play off it, but there’s no INNER sense of morality.

Empty, hollow, dead inside (that part of humanity).

Culture brainwashes you out of what natures instructs.

We know now Plato was correct, more than anybody, where you’re born with an innate sense of morality, you don’t have to tell a kid ‘don’t steal, don’t kill…’ they know it, we know now that you don’t have to be taught languages, you’re ready, your BRAIN is ready when you’re born.”

Fetal psychology?
Could this be the answer?
Could this be a form of birth defect when maladaptive to its Darwinian environment? In the extreme cases?

The same thing with beauty, there’s an innate sense of beauty so-“

I love how that’s the next thing he immediately latches onto.
I wanna see those studies, God-damn… imagine it…. but what would psychopathic art be? An instinct for corruption, decay and ugliness? It’s the deepest heart of emotion, so it must be the flipside.
Beauty must be limbic too, right? It’s gratifying to see my own thoughts align with other intelligent people.
“We accept instincts in animals but we’re not above that. No, we’re not. That’s innately there.”
The correct term is biological determinism.
The evolutionary stages of the fetus in the uterus is also BD.
SJWs are all about opposing any form of it, that’s insane. Completely disconnected from the biological realities, since all of biology, to be philosophical and technically accurate, all of biology is deterministic. It all grows in a precise pattern like chemical crystals, there’s a process and structure – you can’t have a diamond that isn’t related to graphite. Deterministic. Rare word outside of ivory towers, like reductionistic; related in practice. We can reduce a human to cells, human cells are deterministic of the human species, we grow from those stem cells.

See?
Back to instinct.
“Unless that area doesn’t develop, and it’s NOT THERE. It’s a kind of a blind spot. For morality, in psychopaths, it’s NOT There.”

Brain damage? I suppose most variations must be… depending on the rest of the structure, naturally.

“But the ethics they can learn and they use it against you.”
The antisocial rely on everyone else being prosocial. Predators rely on nice docile prey, even intraspecies predators, well, especially those.
In game theory, if you never punish, even the supposed Good players take advantage of you.
In a fake game where the stakes are ego.
Golden Rule involves reward AND punishment, at the same intensity. If your understanding of the Golden Rule isn’t 2+2=4, action and consequence, then you have understood it wrong.

I’m going to stop at the 20m mark, please read the book and watch the rest yourself, I wanted to show – since I haven’t for a while, that there is sound academic backing for some of the things I’m saying.

They sound off because I’m not lying – school was.

Dr Fallon has also done TED among other things, he gets around.
He shows it’s possible for someone with that brain to be a productive member of society.
Great guy.
You can find interesting write-ups.

RETURN TO FREUD.

YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.

Come to the Dark Side, the cookies are choc-chip.

We have biological correlates now, you can’t resist us.

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/scientist-related-killers-learns-psychopaths-brain/story?id=21029246
“Conscience and a sense of morality and impulse control lie in the limbic system and in the orbital cortex in the brain, according to Fallon.
“They connect and inhibit each other not unlike the super-ego controlling the id,” he said. “It’s the interface between the intellectual mind and the emotions attending to them.”
Fallon’s brain scans show low activity in both regions of the brain.
“No behavior is really evil or bad — it’s all contextual,” he said.

[what moral relativism was initially, Darwin]

“There is a time for sex and a time for killing, when someone attacks the family. But it’s done in context. The orbital cortex adjudicates the idea of morality and interacts with the amygdala’s drive to eat, drink and screw. There would be mayhem if it didn’t exist.” [which label do I cite? degeneracy, moral decay, dysgenics, dyscivics et cetera et cetera]
As a neuroscientist, Fallon said he always believed humans were ruled solely by their genes and not their environment in the nature versus nurture debate.
“I never took it seriously,” he said. “I was the poster boy for genes causing everything. But I had to eat crow and say I was wrong.” [he wasn’t though, it’s still natural and not manmade in CAUSE]
His personal story was the subject of a TED talk that went viral on YouTube in 2007 and he even had a guest role on the television show, “Criminal Minds.” Fallon was contacted by literary agents last year to write a book about his experience.
He blames abuse in the first three years of life, combined with biological features that turn off serotonin in the brain, leading to psychopathic violence.”

Loudspeaker: Epigenetics is still genetic.

The clue, is in, the name!
If political left-wingedness has a defective, atrophied, shrunken amygdala (lower volume, to put it clinically), that puts them closer on the Spectrum of Development to a psychopath, I find it funny he’s a moral relativist who stresses his own safety, moments after discussing revenge.
They think you don’t notice their slips. You’re not allowed to question their authority, think Cartman.
Serotonin, again, implicated, again…
I’m tired of being right. So, so tired…
Why are so many lefties needing to be on SSRIs? In good times, historically novel?
What happens when the meds aren’t made?

Here’s the emotional reaction of a neurotypical to violence, in colour.


Literal coldness in the psychopathic. Cold, hard reasoning. Calm in a crisis, calm enough to coolly kill you.
No emotion.

In the ABC article;
“I don’t have special emotional bonds with those who are close to me –– I treat everyone the same,” he said. “I am involved in a lot of charities and good works, and my intentions are good for the world. [he lives here] But I don’t have the sense of romance or love I am supposed to have for my wife. It’s not there.” [broken pair bonding, faulty attachment mechanisms]

I’d love to see Dr. Fallon and Anonymous Conservative interviewed by Stefan Molyneux.

A girl can dream.

I’m gonna throw out a theory here, while I’m here.

K-types have well-developed orbital cortex pathways.
In the future, there will be no leader, moral or otherwise, who doesn’t need to provide this proof of moral agency.
Otherwise, no one will trust them not to screw the ingroup.

Think of the scope of this information, it changes everything.
It needs to become public, it will eventually.

I wonder if there’s a hyper-K version with mild psychopathy (to protect one’s own) and strong conservatism in the amygdala?
Can we genetically engineer for this? Where can I sign that petition?

Video: not an argument

People miss how beautiful that expression is. However, in specific cases, they should be able to break it down precisely why or they themselves have no reply, no argument, simply an assertion.
You have no requirement to answer a non-question, it’s a habit of socializing that we speak upon the completion of a sentence, it doesn’t require that sentence have merit. The Burden of Proof rests on the initial speaker, still.

Yet it can’t be used to outright deny or dismiss without having a specific reason why.


Meanwhile, the only way to effectively deal with r-types, ignore them, however loudly they scream.

See Best Post.


You only protect your own, but they have made it clear they are against you. Don’t lift a finger.
They say strength is bad until they want you to use it on their behalf.

Hey, if they’re so strong without their weapons, if their arguments have the same calibre as a bullet, go right on ahead and let them stand independently, you oppressive shitlord, and die that way if necessary. It’s what they would’ve wanted.

If evil imports evil, what is there to save?

Yourself, is the answer to that question.

Self-interest is rational. Pathological altruism is insanity.
You help those who would help you, the other side of the golden rule. Darwin’s rules. Sacrifice for people who would sacrifice you is patriotism dialed up to the incredible level of a cartoon character.

I swear most of Molly’s job is talking down the autistic from their pedestal of self-righteous stupidity.
If anyone deserves the Rasputin treatment, it’s a terrorist. Thankfully, your taxes go to pay people with guns already. The Parliament attacker guy? Shot, if memory serves, by a white guy with glasses. In a country that stupidly restricted guns. Even we don’t need you, Gun Bro. If the State can’t do the basic thing of shooting the bad guys for us…

I’ve never, ever heard of a liberal defending a conservative from any attack, ever.
Anyone?
They are not like you. They do not like you. Partially because you would defend them, implicitly stating they’re too weak to do it themselves. If you respect them as adults, leave them be. Let them live (and die) free. You are not their precious State, you have no duty to them, you are not getting paid, that is not your job ~z-snap~. You can’t play hero to two villains. They have engineered this setup on purpose. By importing violent left-wingers, they get the distraction to sneak off (reward of cowardice: survival) and the claim to victory (reward of victory). They literally do not lose.

If they don’t value their own safety, why should you?
America is too diverse to be united. You have the Diverse States of America.

He’s wrong about signalling (thinking) as a sign of tribe. Anyone can signal, its value is nil. How many of those diverse callers would help him, if he needed it? The odds are against, aren’t they? There are plenty of r-types signalling K as the idea spreads to new groups and creeps into mainstream awareness. The other day I heard a random cafe-owner say, “I want to protect this country, I’m like a wolf.” R-types invade by signalling. It’s a social invasion, they’re the fifth column, the barbarians sacking Rome from the inside, a swarm of locusts crying out as they hit you. History has taught us the hard way that ideological unity comes from genetic homogeneity.
The culture war is one of ideas. The weapon is a meme. A tiny little piece of information, a snippet of truth.

Signallers are, more often than not, liars.

They signal whatever ‘virtue’ is powerful, hoping for scraps from that table.

They are the begging dogs of society, asking you to hunt for them. It’s like every time Roosh calls for “someone! do something!” and his little internet boyfriends scurry to rescue the damsel and White Knights whatever he asks for. What are you, his wife? At least “think of the children!” defends the helpless. Adults have no business defending other adults. They rise and fall on their own merit, raised or dashed on their own petard.
K-society says: They do it themselves or it doesn’t get done.
R-society? It’s very espionage, ultra deceptive.
They offer you friendship while holding a knife in their other hand. They extend an olive branch first because it’s less effort, not because they like you or believe in the healing power of metaphor. There is a bargain they author, that you never asked for, and if you don’t like it, the carrot, they’ll ‘offer’ the stick. This is called a con. Con artists rely on confidence and trust. Virtue signallers rely on confidence and trust…

They want control over you, that is their power, to wiggle you like a little puppet.

In a victim culture, they are the biggest victims. In a K-shift, they are magically K-leaning.
Occam says: It’s all a lie.

I warned you, years ago. I knew these interlopers would pop up like fleas.
They don’t mind you dancing the right-wing jig as long as it’s to their exact tune.

Guess which is which.

If your friends are your enemies, you’ll never succeed. How to test?

A k-type invented the expression: actions speak louder than words. Until I see you sacrifice for this tribe, it owes nothing to you. If all you have are words, speak to the birds.

Just because someone is smoke-signalling your tribe doesn’t mean they’re on your side. Indeed, this makes it less likely, a friend doesn’t feel the need to keep reminding you they’re not a foe, not a threat, like they’re anticipating something…

DO NOT TRUST A DODGY SIGNAL.

The incongruence should ping to you. What’s in it for you?

In the super-complex theories of strategy, this is called A Trap. It’s a primitive form of distraction by claiming Ally while wearing the coat of your enemy to cuckold him for whatever reason before attacking when factors are on your side and you can turn your coat back and show your true colours. This is the problem with games like chess, where the colours never change sides because they were bribed or got bored. You never get betrayed in chess because the enemy never falters and it’s all very polite and open, two equal lines fairly opposing one another with Queensberry rules. That was 2nd generation warfare, we’re on four. Then again, maybe it’s a commentary on the reality that a leopard can’t change its spots. Who knows? I certainly don’t.

http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/226350.html
“Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.”
They don’t fully quote it for some strange reason. The Bible is actually very witty.

Ask – why do they want your trust? Why aren’t they doing literally anything else? What’s their game? 

It’s a great way to buy time when you know you’d lose in a fair fight.

aka cheating

If this was the 15th century, a ship running up your flag is probably pirates.

And they won’t kill you with rum.

Newsflash: BAD GUYS LIE. THEY LIE OR THEY WON’T FOOL YOU LONG ENOUGH TO WIN.

Back to terrorism. All the way back, centuries and centuries and centuries, like the ideas.

Self-proclaimed liberals have a lot in common with the mythological ‘moderate Muslim’; that is to say, they will claim to be loving and giving until they have power and numbers to be the opposite of those things.

The ‘American Indian’ only gave with the expectation of receiving more in future.

A liberal is a dictator waiting to happen. Biding their time until everyone else has disarmed and made nice.
They know exactly what they are doing. That is what guys like these do not get. Everyone else is slowly waking up. We make memes.

comment
“So if I’m understanding Stefan’s argument correctly it is: “While you certainly have the right to defend yourself, you have zero obligation to defend anyone else against a threat.” Is that the argument you are taking issue with? If so, what is your counterargument? If there is an obligation to defend others where does it come from?”
They want all conservatives to rush to protect them, like the police. While we are occupied, they survive and screw over the next batch of rueful idiots. The type who, at the Gates of Saint Peter, would claim the moral victory is more important.
The self-styled ‘liberals’ scoff at loyalty to children, nuclear family and country… until it comes to discussions of noblesse oblige (without class???), pensions, the social contract and human rights (without property rights). Then it’s all about universalism, collectivism and helping those who can’t/won’t help themselves. They are morally relative, liberal with logic ….wrong, in bad faith (100% deliberate). What they say is usually ‘not an argument’ because it comes from a hypocrite (no-proof), a deceiver (valid use, not ad hominem) and they argue it from bad faith, really pushing something else entirely under the radar.

They are loyal to their own body, especially the neck. They don’t want to save the pandas, they want to save their own skin.

In common speech here, they’re ‘trying it on’ i.e. they know they’re lying to get what they want and disappear when their half comes due, but they’re hoping you don’t know that.

All their virtue signals are overt pleas to get, without giving. 

Argument and clause. Devil and detail. Plan and plot.

Essentially it’s;
>HELP THE OUTGROUP! THE INDIVIDUAL IS NOTHING TO THE GROUP! SACRIFICE AT ALL COSTS!
>…STOP DEFINING THE INGROUP! THAT MODEL IS REDUNDANT AND EVIL!
and that, my friends, is why we mock them.
See: Why mockery?

It is also why you shouldn’t trust ambassadors. 300 was right.

That diverse cast of people calling into Molyneux are attempting to appease him while he gains power (they smell a whiff and cannot yet crush him) and then to advise him to his destruction once he has gained it (and after they have gained his trust). That is what high-IQ r-types DO. The toxic friends of the world. The fairweather traitors and degenerate preachers.

Clinically, they have many names. Sociopath tops the list.

Question a normal person: #crickets

Question a sociopath: you are (lie), (lie) and (lie), evil person! Appease me! Account for your sin!

They’ve found a scapegoat to slaughter.

Sociopaths especially detest those who describe their tactics to the masses for protection.

You can’t defame the truth, though, can you?

The Golden Rule is for suckers

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/ambigamy/201208/how-the-golden-rule-makes-us-dumb

In conflict, the Golden Rule is mute, so we abandon it, and then give ourselves or our opponents a hard time for not living up to its supposedly gold standard.

moot*

The Golden Rule is intended to appeal to your opponent’s better nature and a sense of equality.
It relies on the premise they have a ‘better nature’, a sporting competitive zeal.
This is why it fails.
Most countries in the world failed to invent or follow Queensberry rules. It’s an Anglo convention.

At best the Golden Rule is a paradox: “We should all compromise so no one has to compromise.” As such it’s perhaps a useful way to frame a moral dilemma but it’s neither golden nor a rule.  Dilemmas masquerading as principles are a big part of the problem with how humans handle conflict. The supposed rules deceive us into thinking there’s a problem-solving formula when there isn’t. They distract us from wondering about exactly the dilemmas that need our careful attention.

Instead? I suggest you adopt girl’s best friend:

Video: The Death of Europe | Gene Wars

The abs of Satan metaphor will haunt me.

Clearly, it does violate the Non-Aggression Principle. 
Humans need two things to live: land and resources on that land.
Humans have a right to their homeland.
To violate these properties by invasion is a clear violation.

I’m surprised he doesn’t know about the UN definition of genocide.
Mostly, it isn’t murder. It’s slower, subtler and far more insidious.

The Golden Rule doesn’t work when most of the world follows Might is Right. Followers who advocate that should never be allowed in a leadership position.

http://www.un.org/en/preventgenocide/adviser/pdf/osapg_analysis_framework.pdf

Under 6. Genocidal Acts;

Acts that could be obvious “elements” of the crime of genocide as defined in Article 6 of the Rome Statute, 4 such as killings, abduction and disappearances, torture, rape and sexual violence; ‘ethnic cleansing’ or pogroms;5 • Less obvious methods of destruction, such as the deliberate deprivation of resources needed for the group’s physical survival and which are available to the rest of the population, such as clean water, food and medical services;6 • Creation of circumstances that could lead to a slow death, such as lack of proper housing, clothing and hygiene or excessive work or physical exertion; • Programs intended to prevent procreation, including involuntary sterilization, forced abortion, prohibition of marriage and long-term separation of men and women; • Forcible transfer of children, imposed by direct force or through fear of violence, duress, detention, psychological oppression or other methods of coercion; • Death threats or ill treatment that causes disfigurement or injury; forced or coerced use of drugs or other treatment that damages health

The 1948 definition is THE definition, one page crystal-clear;

http://www.teachgenocide.org/files/UN%20Definition%20of%20Genocide.pdf

General Assembly Resolution 260A (III) Article 2

In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;

Unnecessary war
Prison (genetic death)
Violent crime
Abortion

(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;

Anti-white propaganda
Censorship laws to prevent speaking out

(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

Take the land of another group
Plunder the resources so there is less for them
This is called Multiculturalism.

(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;

“Sex Education”
Taxpayer funded contraception to minors

(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group

Social Services.

So when you hear the phrase “white genocide”, don’t laugh – remember how this applies only to Europe (homeland of white people) right now.
