Link between mental health and ….bad health

The types of “health” are related, really? Shook over here.

If only there were a physical connection we could see like some kind of fleshy vehicle of testable units, a body of some description. No, we’re floating blobs of consciousness in a cloud of feels, aren’t we?

Mutation (genetic) load is true, at least somewhat but who dares to directly study it? Instead we are left with related variables.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3048500/

The lifespan of people with severe mental illness (SMI) is shorter compared to the general population. This excess mortality is mainly due to physical illness. We report prevalence rates of different physical illnesses as well as important individual lifestyle choices, side effects of psychotropic treatment and disparities in health care access, utilization and provision that contribute to these poor physical health outcomes.”

Detailed.

“Nutritional and metabolic diseases, cardiovascular diseases, viral diseases, respiratory tract diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, sexual dysfunction, pregnancy complications, stomatognathic diseases, and possibly obesity-related cancers are, compared to the general population, more prevalent among people with SMI.”

People with mental problems can’t take care of themselves, really?

Not to be harsh but, is this news?
I searched, not one mention of fitness.

Ability to reproduce (here it would be impotence for age in the male) and carry (childbearing without issue for age, the female) is a significant component of it (organism fitness, for the nerds at home).

https://www.age-of-the-sage.org/quotations/darwin_survival_fittest.html

“struggle for existence”, he repeated in description
the vindicated theme for this post

“Besides modifiable lifestyle factors and side effects of psychotropic medications, access to and quality of health care remains to be improved for individuals with SMI.”

#sigh

Enough of that for now.

And they’re exponentially more expensive.
https://www.healthcatalyst.com/understanding-risk-stratification-comorbidities/
I dislike this fact but…. the information is out there. We can’t help by lying.

There isn’t just one thing causing the “mental” disease and another separate thing causing the “bodily” disease.
It’s all genetic! At least, moderately genetic.
And remember I said exponential risk of suck?

“Charlson Comorbidity Measure: The Charlson model predicts the risk of one-year mortality for patients with a range of comorbid illnesses. Based on administrative data, the model uses the presence/absence of 17 comorbidity definitions and assigns patients a score from one to 20, with 20 being the more complex patients with multiple comorbid conditions. It is effective for predicting future poor outcomes. This method is explained in further detail below”

You cannot fight math. You will lose.

#struggle4life

poor outcomes = death, more or less

This is tough to read like the IQ link. I wouldn’t blame you skipping all this. You cannot unsee it.

“One thing all of these models have in common is that they are based, in some degree, on comorbidity. Understanding comorbid conditions is a critical aspect of population health management because comorbidities are known to significantly increase risk and cost. In fact, a study from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reports that care for patients with comorbid chronic conditions costs up to seven times as much as care for those with only one chronic condition.”

Twice the condition can be seven times the cost. I’ll leave you to think about that.
Is this systemic injustice?
No!
The body is complex, various conditions interact with one another. Not killing the patient by accident due to Condition B to treat Condition A needs time and more research and more money!

https://www.rwjf.org/en/library/research/2011/02/mental-disorders-and-medical-comorbidity.html

“Expenditures and gaps in health care delivery are not evenly distributed across the population, however. To improve health care quality and reduce costs, policy-makers must focus on particular subgroups who are at greatest risk. Persons with mental health and medical comorbidities represent just such a population.”
“The pathways causing comorbidity of mental and medical disorders are complex and bidirectional.

What I said.

Medical disorders may lead to mental disorders, mental conditions may place a person at risk for certain medical disorders, and mental and medical disorders may share risk factors

Yup.

It’s all healthcare, people!

ALL OF IT.

For instance, low IQ can also ’cause’ someone to more likely get heart disease.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-heart-intelligence/low-intelligence-among-top-heart-health-risks-study-idUSTRE61903L20100210

Here’s a clunker of a line.

“When mental and medical conditions co-occur, the combination is associated with elevated symptom burden, functional impairment, decreased length and quality of life, and increased health care costs.”

This upsets me. Just world is a fallacy.

Bear in mind the IQ/depression link in the last post:

“At the same time, major depression is a risk factor for developing chronic conditions, such as cardiovascular disease.”

If the economy is making people of a certain IQ band effectively useless, they’re going to be depressed.
Especially if “their” jobs owed by their home country are outsourced to visa people.

“Exposure to adverse childhood experiences such as trauma, abuse, and chronic stress are all associated with both mental and medical disorders, and responsible for much of the high rates of comorbidity, burden of illness, and premature death associated with chronic illness.”

It’s sad. It’s sad to read about. That is a harrowing existence.

But stress shouldn’t be lumped in with trauma and abuse.

“Many of the most common treatments for diseases may actually worsen the comorbid condition.”

You tell me where the solution is because I don’t see it.

A society of hospital patients (don’t forget aging demographics).

Over to Oz.
http://www.health.gov.au/internet/publications/publishing.nsf/Content/mental-pubs-m-mhaust2-toc~mental-pubs-m-mhaust2-hig~mental-pubs-m-mhaust2-hig-men
Mental disorders were more common among people with chronic physical conditions (28.0%) when compared to people who did not have a chronic physical condition (17.6%).
The data is usually out there. Tough to find but present.

Another!
https://pubs.niaaa.nih.gov/publications/arh40/109-117.pdf

This article briefly reviews the associations
among alcohol dependence, major depressive disorder, and
posttraumatic stress disorder. Dysregulation of the brain’s and
body’s stress system (i.e., the limbic–hypothalamic–
pituitary–adrenal axis) might serve as a common mechanistic
link to explain some of the relationships among these
frequently comorbid conditions. Finally, the article examines
the role of sex differences in stress circuitry. These differences
may explain why men and women differ in their risk for
developing comorbid alcoholism and stress ­related disorders.”

Addictions play into it too, because of course they do.

And you can’t really blame sexism for an individual’s brain circuitry.

Let’s look at one more substance and how it alters development (i.e. when children/teens/young adults use it).

An interaction of marijuana and low IQ they won’t study so here’s something odd.
https://www.gwern.net/docs/genetics/correlation/2017-aas.pdf
“Psychotic patients who used cannabis frequently before illness onset have higher genetic predisposition to schizophrenia than those who did not”
“Our study supports an association between high SZ-PGRS and frequent cannabis use before illness onset
in psychosis continuum disorders.”

Before someone points to this classic arse-covering exercise,
https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/01/twins-study-finds-no-evidence-marijuana-lowers-iq-teens
I linked because you wanted info on school shooters and pot use is a major factor.
Naturally the drug use wouldn’t change IQ because the IQ is the causative factor in having a childhood addiction problem.
However the study compares ongoing users to abstaining, not ongoing addicts to a twin who never did the stuff, there is no control group, making this link pointless so don’t try to send me it. I’ve seen it.

When the brain is developing, there is a permanent loss of functioning.
https://www.forbes.com/sites/travisbradberry/2015/02/10/new-study-shows-smoking-pot-permanently-lowers-iq/

And abnormal function. Like with any drug to any developing organ.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/10/161005160733.htm

For the ‘self-medication’ lie:
“The use of marijuana did not correct the brain function deficits of depression, and in some regions made them worse.”

“Of additional interest, those participants who used marijuana from a young age had highly abnormal brain function in areas related to visuo-spatial processing, memory, self-referential activity and reward processing.”
No, they cannot perceive themselves accurately.

This whole drug study in children (<25) thing is like breaking someone’s kneecaps with a baseball bat and wondering why they can’t sprint. You wouldn’t give them alcohol and tobacco, why give them anything else that’s an addictive drug and think it’s fine? Why not nice and “natural” opioids next?

[ I googled this as a joke and fuck you, America.
nytimes.com/2018/05/09/magazine/children-of-the-opioid-epidemic.html
axialhealthcare.com/opioid-use-safety-children/
druggy parent trash pushing it on the kids? That’s low. ]

Why not the ankles too? Why not?

I firmly believe some of these kids have the misfortune that their parents are their worst enemy in life.

Anyway.

“The study found that early marijuana use was also associated with lower IQ scores.”

Associated. Which first? The lower IQ or child drug abuse?

“With past research suggesting a genetic role between marijuana use and depression, Dr. Osuch and her collaborators at Western University’s Robarts Research Institute also conducted genetic testing on participants. They discovered that a certain genetic variation of the gene that produces Brain Derived Neurotropic Factor (BDNF) was found in greater proportion in youth who used marijuana from an early age. BDNF is involved in brain development and memory, among other processes.

Could be a race-based finding, unclear.

“This is a novel finding that suggests this genetic variation may predispose youth to early marijuana use,” said Dr. Osuch.”

So how many of you heard about it in the MSM?

Funny how they trust none of the political news but all the scientism rationalizing living like a CA Democrat member.

It doesn’t have to be good universally for you to do it, like smoking tobacco, just admit it can be bad for society and move on. Denial of biology makes it more annoying and a full ban more likely. Shaming normal people for being “squares” is what all druggies do including alcoholics.

Why link that here?

What would drug use increase, in the organism? Mutation rate. The genetic load (whatever it was) becomes heavier. So to do that before reproducing, knowing the adverse effects, the child/ren will be worse off as well. So much for “doing no harm” and “victimless crime”. Eventually parents will be sued by their children for bad lifestyle habits that damaged their personal genome (and their children’s genome etc). It’s coming.

I warned you, cannot unsee it.

Low IQ a mental health risk

https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/press-releases/lower-childhood-iq-associated-with-higher-risk-of-adult-mental-disorders/

Read it and fucking weep.

If you understand it, you’ll want to.

Researchers have hypothesized that people with lower IQs may have a higher risk of adult mental disorders,

less ability to thrive in the world leads to depression, really?

but few studies have looked at the relationship between low childhood IQ and psychiatric disorders later in life. In a new, long-term study covering more than three decades, researchers at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH)

sorry is three decades by Harvard not good enough for some of you?

while you’re playing the Devil’s fiddle of appeal to authority?

“Well, this wasn’t in the Guardian” YEAH.

No prizes for guessing why.

found that children with lower IQs showed an increased risk of developing psychiatric disorders as adults, including schizophrenia, depression and generalized anxiety disorder.

but not limited to

Lower IQ was also associated with psychiatric disorders that were more persistent and an increased risk of having two or more diagnoses at age 32.

Wow the asylum special? Next post about that, regular hospitals are fast becoming the new asylum.

Because “stigma” is a great excuse to endanger regular populations.

The study will be published online December 1, 2008 and in the January print issue of The American Journal of Psychiatry.

The study participants were members of the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study, a cohort of children born in 1972-1973 in Dunedin, New Zealand. At the initial assessment at age 3, the study had 1,037 children. The participants were also interviewed and tested on their overall health and behavior at ages 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 18, 21, 26 and at age 32, when 96% of the original cohort participated. IQs were assessed at ages 7, 9 and 11. Psychiatric disorders were assessed at ages 18 through 32 in interviews by clinicians who had no knowledge of the subjects’ IQ or psychiatric history.

blind

The authors used IQ as a marker of a concept called cognitive reserve, which refers to variation between people in their brain’s resilience to neuropathological damage.

Darwin just called it fitness but okay. Ignore evolution.

Or it could be the inverse genetic measure genetic load, where less is best.

The results showed that lower childhood IQ predicted an increased risk of a variety of adult mental disorders.

Imagine my shock.

“Lower childhood IQ predicted increased risk of schizophrenia, depression, and generalized anxiety disorder. Individuals with lower childhood IQ also had more persistent depression and anxiety and were more likely to be diagnosed with two or more disorders in adulthood,” said lead author Karestan Koenen, assistant professor of society, human development, and health at HSPH.

Next post will focus on comorbids.

It’s ironically depressing reading.

No association was found between lower childhood IQ and substance dependence disorders, simple phobia, panic disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Sounds dodgy but okay.

The mechanism through which lower childhood IQ might lead to increased risk of adult anxiety disorders is not known,

that is a lie

the world doesn’t need low IQ labor anymore, especially in the First World

but the authors suggest some possible explanations.

Step 1. give them more money?

They write that lower childhood IQ might reveal a difference in brain health that makes an individual more vulnerable to certain mental disorders. Another possible mechanism is stress–individuals with lower childhood IQs are less equipped to deal with complex challenges of modern daily life, which may make them more vulnerable to developing mental disorders.

I won’t even.

The findings may be helpful in treating individuals with mental health disorders.

Hang on, if it’s implicitly caused by low IQ, it cannot be fixed.

Ever.

It’s their parents’ fault (median IQ of the genetic parents, all else equal).

Why blame the kid?

“Lower childhood IQ was associated with greater severity of mental disorders including persistence over time and having two or more diagnoses at age 32,” said Koenen.

32 is young, they haven’t even hit middle-age yet when conditions skyrocket.

Deep breath.

“Since individuals with persistent and multiple mental disorders are more likely to seek services, cognitive ability may be an important factor for clinicians to consider in treatment planning.

REALLY.

This is why IQ denialism is toxic. It isn’t everything but hey, it’s something!

When you’re planning about people, plural, it’s important!

For example, individuals with lower cognitive ability may find it harder to follow instructions and comply with treatment regimens.

How low are we talking?

By taking clients’ cognitive ability into account, clinicians may improve treatment outcome,” she said.

The results may also be helpful in prevention planning. “Educators and pediatricians should be aware that children with lower cognitive ability may be at greater risk of developing psychiatric disorders. Early detection and intervention aimed at ameliorating mental health problems in these children may prevent these problems from carrying over into adulthood,” said Koenen.

No no no, no no no and…. no.

I’m ragequitting this post and writing the next, I tried.

Atheists are the runts

You couldn’t tell by bone structure? The men are almost pigeon-chested with women’s shoulders an Austen character would be proud of.

http://www.unz.com/article/are-atheists-genetic-mutants-a-product-of-recent-evolution/

New mutations crop up all the time and the genes don’t survive.

It’s kinda like the SJW claim that sexes don’t exist because hermaphrodites do.

Er, mutants exist. They are aberrations. Ironically, they’re seeking meaning like Jesus in toast.

But they would also have had mutant genes affecting the mind.

Really?

Really?

This is because the brain, home to 84% of the genome, is extraordinarily sensitive to mutation, so mental and physical mutation robustly correlate. If these children had grown up, they might have had autism, schizophrenia, depression… but they had poor immune systems, so they never had the chance.

Why would nature waste resources better spent on the children likeliest to breed?

This is literally Darwin.

Among these, the authors argue, was a very specific kind of religiosity which developed in all complex societies: the collective worship of gods concerned with morality.

It’s no coincidence many atheists are psychopathically broken enough to reject the concept of objective morality, moral absolutes (unless it applies to their opponent, to weaken them). In a small tribe, they’d have been kicked out by the elders at the first sign of criminality and deception to starve. The anti-weasel reflex is still present in us, it makes us get off a bus early when an unstable person gets on or avoid the creepily attentive boy who offers to buy us a drink to spike.

Your instincts keep you alive better than a lazy police force.
Antisocial people hate instincts because it thwarts their lies.

Ask yourself, why did men in all great societies have to leave the home, live alone,  prove themselves and follow the law to be worthy of respect? We coddle teenagers and hence we have a society of weak men. They complain about this yet never volunteer to do what needs to be done, a sign of their weakness, it begins with the moral.

If you’re so different from women, ya gotta act like it.

Sitting around complaining among the women is what the gay guys do. Not attractive. How many mistake this vanity for intellect?

Mixed schools were a sign of the mistake. When little girls exercise like little boys, their brains are masculinized. How many pro-Patriarchy guys would prefer a male-only school? Vanishingly few. They’re full of shit. They want all the imagined rewards with none of the effort. But sex-exclusive schools get better grades, with less distraction, as do religion-specific and race-specific ones.

Without morality, there is no reputation. Without reputation, there is no honour and no culture.

Hypocrites who refuse to lead by example because *valley girl voice* It’s HAAAARD.

This very specific kind of religiousness was selected for and, indeed, it correlates with positive and negative ethnocentrism even today.

Genophilia is evolutionally fit, no shit.

The authors demonstrate that this kind of religiousness has clearly been selected for in itself. It is about 40% genetic according to twin studies, it is associated with strongly elevated fertility, it can be traced to activity in specific regions of the brain, and it is associated with elevated health: all the key markers that something has been selected for.

Ask an atheist if he has asthma. That one condition.

They’re lazy moral Marxists. “I can take what I want because I can find an excuse”. It’s a child’s mindset begging their parents for a toy or to “let them get away” with eating a cookie before dinner. They feel the world (and any God) owes them personally, entitlement is the mindset of weakness.

They earn nothing. They get nothing. That is just.

Their failure is a sign the system works. It’s like the “incels” who refuse to develop an adult personality but demand AA for orgasms. Redistribution of hotties and thotties. They’re just fucking marxists. Literally.
“Rejection should be illegal” people. Utterly brittle personalities, sheltered.

There is no right to another person’s body, and this coming from self-proclaimed libertarians? How many hands do they have? Take matters into your own hands.

They think women don’t suffer (aren’t fully human) or that suffering is rare, new and some personal outrage. You can’t argue with reality.
Who wants to sleep with a kid in a grown man’s body?

And it is from here that the authors make the leap that has made SJW blood boil. Drawing on research by Michael Woodley of Menie and his team (see here and here)they argue that conditions of Darwinian selection have now massively weakened, leading to a huge rise in people with damaging mutations. This is evidenced in increasing rates of autism, schizophrenia, homosexuality, sex-dysmorphia, left-handedness, asymmetrical bodies and much else. These are all indicators of mutant genes.

dysgenic, the word you need to use

Pollutants in food, water, air, clothing, medications (neurotoxic) and unprecedented interactions with foreign microbiomes throwing the native ones off cause a hefty amount too. Then there are easily remedied things like non-Indians eating a diet they didn’t evolve for and wondering why gastro issues are through the roof.

I think the antacid people own stock in curry suppliers. White people are dumb.

Peasant food is not good for you. Foreign peasant food is worst for you.

Malthus shall prevail.

All except the handedness is true. Natural variations exist in eye colour, hair, nails, handedness. It doesn’t mean as much as psychologists claim it does, it’s just easy and cheap to study. They’re lazy. You have a dominant foot too but nobody gives a shit.

It’s fucking palmistry.

Most people are slightly ambi.

Mutants are not necessarily dysgenic though, advantageous ones are simply a lot rarer and normally come from better bloodline stock with reduced genetic load (in fact, that might be the deciding factor in whether a trait presents as useful or thanatos).

Look at the HBD studies about SES (class) over multiple generations. Social mobility is a false condition of fiat debt spirals, it will correct too. Champagne socialists will be the elderly people in manual labouring jobs.

Little mentioned but autism is a “low empathy” condition. Like psychopathy. They cannot cooperate properly and lack the emotional intelligence to be leaders. The idea some super-academic smartypants in the white house would solve all problems is symbolic of their deficits. They can’t run their own life in an orderly way.

Low empathy = antisocial, in practice.

They deny this from egocentrism but it’s pathognomonic of the pathological medical condition.

They deny it’s any of the last three things too. It’s part of the condition.

Why deny they lack empathy? They’re shrewd enough to know it’s socially undesirable but if you ask around the idea, they’ll freely admit they hate all people, raging bigots. They’re full of self-pity, self-loathing, refusal to change (like a sociopath) or learn from moral errors and highly reactive to others but in an angry closed-off way.

They think reactivity (over sensitive) and lashing out at people (intermittent explosive) is empathy.

Utterly incapable of humility. That requires the self-awareness of social intelligence but they don’t really see other people. They are not perceptive on the human level. They even crowd out other mental illnesses for more air time.

Super competent and smart, they claim…. until you hold them to that standard.
It’s like how the ADHD guys claim to be slow but also geniuses (logically exclusive). Their own subjective experience of their mind when it sputters like an old car biases them with feeling. They claim they don’t have feelings because they’re constantly over-run with them. Overwhelmed. It’s like Victorian hysteria in men.

A nerve study would be interesting.

They’ll abandon their parents on their deathbed once they hear their name’s on the will, totally callous. Instead of admitting they’re selfish, they’ll go Ayn Rand and claim (intellectualization is their favourite defensiveness) they aren’t bad people (just do bad things, repeatedly, by choice??!!) but society, unwilling to coddle, is dragging them down.

Antisocial people feel the need to destroy and punish all the good of society and spare the bad. It does vary.

In some instances, heartless. Look up stories of women who’ve been married to Asperger’s men, they sound almost exactly like sociopaths. For example, denial of the condition to gaslight then blaming the condition at other times.

So Dutton and his team argue that, this being the case, deviation from this very specific form of religiousness—the collective worship of moral gods in which almost everyone engaged in 1800—should be associated with these markers of mutation.

oh look, a real psychologist and none of the JP fans like him

maybe he should tell them to wash their hands

In other words, both atheists and those interested in spirituality with no moral gods (such as the paranormal) should be disproportionately mutants.

There has never been a pilot country of atheists. They refuse to found so much as a village. When a group doesn’t want to live among itself, it implicitly admits it is damaged.

They can’t play the Poor Me card if they aren’t surrounded by normal empaths who’ll assume the best.

And this is precisely what they show. Poor physical and mental health are both significantly genetic and imply high mutational load. Dutton and his team demonstrate that this specific form of religiousness, when controlling for key factors such as SES, predicts much better objective mental and physical health, recovery from illness, and longevity than atheism.

Longevity?

Can someone film Aubrey when told this?

That’s literally the best Darwinian metric.

I wonder if he could study atheist researchers of the psychology of religion. Would they rig the test? Yes, they’d try. Aren’t atheist researchers of religion a little biased? Nobody brings this up.

It’s generally believed that religiousness makes you healthier because it makes you worry less and elevates your mood,

look at the Wiccans, it’s a connection to the natural world (disconnection from the fake world of urban, neon and shiny atheist crap)

but they turn this view on its head, showing that religious worshippers are more likely to carry gene forms associated with being low in anxiety. Schizophrenia, they show, is associated with extreme and anti-social religiosity, rather than collective worship. Similarly, belief in the paranormal is predicted by schizophrenia, and this is a marker of genetic mutation.

Aliens, bigfoot, Slenderman. Atheists believe in lots of things, diffuse. Next they’ll break out the healing crystals.

Next, they test autism, another widely accepted marker of mutation, as evidenced by the fact that it’s more common among the children of older men, whose fathers are prone to mutant sperm. Autism predicts atheism.

Old men babies are damaged. Huh. If only I had a tag on paternal age.

Genetic disease leads to genetic suicide?

Of course, rather than blaming men for marrying and breeding to late, I’m sure they’ll blame wider society like men didn’t make a series of choices over years that materially harmed their children.

The problem people have with atheistkult isn’t that they don’t believe. It’s that they’re obsessive about how EVIL (but evil doesn’t exist?) this meme is and wish to harm and destroy and crush people who are “dumb” enough to fall for it and be happy and healthy.

Yeah, we aren’t falling for it.

You choose what to believe, you choose to look for it or not. They shut their eyes and cry “why don’t I see?”

Mala fides. If they were women in the olden days, they’d have been killed as witches. It’s amazing given how many claim to be super competent, how their life fails to play this out. We have mewling men who can’t take care of themselves but attempt to guilt trip the rest of us into respecting them and playing into the delusion.

throw on a dress and legally, we’d have to

Calhoun’s mutant men

https://charltonteaching.blogspot.co.uk/2016/12/mouse-utopia-and-dysfunction-and.html

I find it funny the manosphere has managed to completely misinterpret this. I waited a while to see if they’d self-correct. Judging by this post, you can tell it’s spiraled down into:

“If men got everything they wanted, the world would be perfect.”

You are wrong.

To summarise – when four breeding pairs of mice were allowed to reproduce under ideal ‘utopian’ conditions, the colony entirely ceased to breed after three years, and then went extinct. 

Men are destructive and their most destructive impulse, sex, run amok, will tear down society in the quest for satisfaction (that never, ahem, comes).

Why? Genetic load.

Michael A Woodley suggests that what was going on was much more likely to be mutation accumulation; with deleterious (but non-fatal) genes incrementally accumulating with each generation and generating a wide range of increasingly maladaptive behavioural pathologies; this process rapidly overwhelming and destroying the population before any beneficial mutations could emerge to ‘save; the colony from extinction.

World Wars 1 and 2 didn’t help the overall profile of a nation.
Sure, send the fit ones off the die, let the sickly ones stay home safe and fuck. Sounds fair.

Where did all the good men go?

No Man’s Land.

So the bizarre behaviours seen especially in Phase D – such as the male ‘beautiful ones’ who appeared to be healthy

steroids
ab implants
ass implants
Botox

the makeup of fake tan

bulging useless muscles entirely for show, in a coward afraid to break his nose
Fake masculinity in general. This bravado that a caveman would sneer at.

and spent all their time self-grooming, but were actually inert, unresponsive, unintelligent and uninterested in reproduction – were plausibly maladaptive outcomes of a population sinking under the weight of mutations.

I have never met an adult male that fits this description in modernity. /s

Vain? Immature? Dull? Sterile? Dopey? Effete?

What clearer signal is there to the world that your genetics suck than deciding not to inflict them on the next generation? They don’t even have the excuse of a specific disease they’re like nah, just me. Or maybe the r-selected have a deadened paternal instinct and view the duty as a millstone, Peter Pan style.

Can you imagine if they had to explain this to all of their ancestors?

“Yeah, I just… can’t be bothered.” At least those ones don’t confuse marriage for slavery.

There’s narcissism in believing you are the apex of your genetic line. There is also stupidity, since they all survived things you never could.

Thus mutation selection balance is in operation among wild mice, with very high mortality rates continually weeding-out the high rate of spontaneously-occurring new mutations (especially among males)

Natural Selection before….

– with typically only a small and relatively mutation-free proportion of the (large numbers of) offspring surviving to reproduce;

Sexual Selection. Darwin works! [The opposite of this situation would be India. Lots of men, lots of arranged marriages, lots of misery.]

and a minority of the most active and healthy (mutation free) males siring the bulk of each generation.

“In a Patriarchy, I’d be guaranteed a wife” noooo, you wouldn’t

Pictured: all women on the inside upon hearing this whiny entitled horse-shit.
It’s like the male equivalent of when an SJW pulls out the “I deserve” list and the guy is the billionaire from Fifty Shades, it’s like “OH, THAT’s why they’re single.” You might think that’s an extreme example until you ask these guys what they believe they can realistically get. They have no idea what women even value, we’re like aliens to them. In women, this entitlement gets bullied out of us as teens when we learn our level, men never do this – to their own detriment, leaving many men to falsely conclude they are valuable, “Just the Way they Are.”

Result? They never learn better (no wise elders with a strong pimp hand) and they die alone. Like those stupid rats.

Devaluing what a woman provides is #1 error, who wants to breed with that? Imagine investing in a business with a Communist who doesn’t believe in profits and even wishes to give away yours for you. You’d run for the hills too. You can’t work with that!

Allow me to explain logically: “In a Patriarchy, I’d be guaranteed a wife!”

When people had more standards? MORE standards than the ones you currently fail?

No.

And if you were, you’d be guaranteed a wife of your level. Are you sure? You can currently get your level, you just don’t want it. Patriarchies have intact, open hierarchies so you would only be entitled your true level. Bravado won’t save you this time.

in every generation, there will always be losers
for biological reasons discussed herein, the majority are male

In a Darwinian sense, men are intended to compete and die or win and wife up.
Trivers proved Dads win, Cads lose. Don’t expect the genetic suicides to believe you though. Maths interrupts their mirror time at the gym. Instead they’ll stomp their feet and insist you can’t fire them, they quit!

These guys aren’t even free of STDs, let alone terrible mutations (which STDs can cause in the germline). Have you ever paused to consider the anatomy of the term fuckboy? Or the politer, older, Boomer term, playboy?

Play – Immature

Boy – Unfit for breeding

However, in Mouse Utopia, there is no predation and all the other causes of mortality (eg. Starvation, violence from other mice) are reduced to a minimum – so the frequent mutations just accumulate, generation upon generation – randomly producing all sorts of pathological (maladaptive) behaviours

Rumination?

There is very dark rumination in that type, revenge fantasy, explicit painful porn scenarios, random escapism with drugs and drink. They pattern like a male borderline. They weren’t before but they begin to act like it.

This includes murder of their own children and its mother. Noticed those types of crime are on the rise?
And if women’s instincts are functional to reject them as suitors, rape or murder spree. The need to die with a thrill. War provided many good functions for society but cleaning out the gene pool is among the noblest.

Craven men would never believe in a Good Death like the ancients. We live in a West of honourless men. This is the cause of most of its problems. Being children in their minds, they are both immortal and too mortified by the idea of not getting what they want it paralyzes them short-term, long-term enrages. Mantrum, a senseless rage ill-directed to a weaker still target (women, children, animals) and classically punished for it. The decadent fury of the Little Emperor. It’s like hysteria but real. Women aren’t the sex with emotional regulation issues, on the whole.

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=mantrum

A long, boring drawn out expression of rage the human male expresses when he notices that life and the world didn’t give him what he deserves, such as the perfect career, car, life, etc. Sometimes starts as young as 25, generally crops up when the late 30s are reached – either expressed in annoying (to women) outbursts of rage and self-pity or (equally annoying to women) a red convertible.

You can spot them with the same priorities of a fifteen year old, old enough to father one.

If you cringed at that, “you’re just jealous!” Yes, exactly like a fifteen year old.

Back to rats

Phase C = Baby Boomers made.

Phase D of population stagnation phase lasted a further 360 days = 2.4 mouse generations”

Phase D was enacted with the official Sexual Revolution, I think.
In fact, fornication took off in the 1920s, as fertility rates started to shudder. Quelle surprise.

Mid-Gen Y fertility peak, early Gen Z. AKA Now. = D or E.

This is accurate.

Millennials cannot afford children.

https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/london-life/is-this-why-millennials-arent-having-babies-a3288601.html

Their tax money pays for children though.

Again, totally fair.

“Therefore, Terminal Phase E the last conception (and de facto inevitable extinction) was 816 days after breeding commenced = 5.4 mouse generations.”

From the 20s? When clubs and partying took off.

That’s without outgroup pressure, economic factors, stress and STDs impacting fertility…

2 generations from here, at best. All things considered.

That’s a neat 250-odd years after the Industrial Revolution, 250 being the cycle of the average Empire: growth to collapse.

Then Malthus’ trap kicks in if it hasn’t already (1 gen, tops, imho, triggered by this economy). Quantity belies low quality so Children per Woman is the wrong metric and Children per Couple or per Citizen might be better (albeit more dire and traditional).

Men have pretty much decided (?) they can get away with never marrying (wrongly) so I’d reckon Phase E now is possible since No ring, no baby!

https://disenchantedscholar.wordpress.com/2018/03/29/no-ring-no-baby/

Let’s apply it to now and think.

In the late phases of the mouse utopia experiment the birth rate dwindled to zero – but there was a plateau phase when the population numbers remained approximately static because the fewer mice were being born but more mice were living to an extreme old age – a lifespan of four years and longer, which is considerably older than mice would expect to live in the wild.

Yet these mice were grossly abnormal, indeed pathological, in their behaviour. – in particular suffering what might be termed psychiatric abnormalities that impaired social interaction (and reproduction) including a strange narcissism in some male mice (the ‘beautiful ones’) which looked like superb physical specimens but did not mate.

dying population, China is worst off

Never before has China had a population density like this, Japan is nothing to that. Japan is stabilizing somewhat given its available landmass. In times before, they’d have had a war or famine a decade ago. What goes up…

At the moment the young are on strike until the old die and they’re freed from cultural expectations to be happy little leech hosts for Nanny and Pops, who retired fifty years ago.

India is second but has more space and farming.

What are they doing?

http://www.scmp.com/news/china/economy/article/2116388/chinas-pension-fund-has-us317-billion-its-sleeve-and-now-its

Funding pensions.

Really, fifty years.

Japan doesn’t get it. A society prioritizes funds from the taxpayer to the elderly OR to the young, to plan families. Do you see any societies that survived with huge pensions? Clue: Greece and Rome had these before collapse.

http://www.businessinsider.com/martin-armstrong-what-destroyed-rome-2011-5?IR=T

The Decline & Fall of Rome was driven by the UNFUNDED guarantee of PENSIONS and like social security today, there was nothing actually put aside. It was always assumed that the state would be able to fund its promises.

During the Republican days, 25 denarii paid 52 percent of the cost of his family’s annual needs for grain. By the 3rd century AD, it would take 6,000 denarii to create the same standard of living. Inflation was the RESULT, not the SOURCE, which was the fiscal mismanagement of Rome.

Rome’s decision to continue to grow the size of pensions without funding them eventually resulted in rapid inflation and devaluation of its silver currency, and he argues that it the guaranteed government pensions were designed to entice people into the military.

You tell me, are the Chinese smarter than the Romans?

The modern Greeks don’t get this!

https://www.reuters.com/article/eurozone-greece-pensions/a-greek-paradox-many-elderly-are-broke-despite-costly-pensions-idUSL5N0Z12PS20150616

Why should the rest of Europe work so you can sit around?

To the lenders, the pension system is still too generous compared with what the country can afford. Greece spent 17.5 percent of its economic output on pension payments, more than any other EU country, according to the latest available Eurostat figures from 2012.

With existing cuts, this figure has since fallen to 16 percent.

Fucking Communists. There is no legal right to a pension, it’s at the state’s discretion.

However, one person familiar with the talks said wages and pensions together still eat up 80 percent of primary state spending, before debt servicing costs. “The remaining 20 percent is already cut to the bone, indeed too far,” he said. “Civil servants have no pencils to write with,

you are paying tits and wine money, you deserve to crash
They had ALL THAT TIME to save, unlike the young. Yay, a 0.02% savings rate!

buildings in need of maintenance are crumbling.

good?

this is what happens when you spend on Communism

stuff breaks

nobody wants to pay for the stuff

It’s not possible to make public finances sustainable without working on wages and pensions.”

Despite years of reforms, many Greeks can still retire early, especially workers in the public sector and professions classified as hazardous such as the army.

I see a pattern.

Most of these people deserve to burn. You don’t reap what you don’t sow.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/japan-pension-funds-investment-chief-nurtures-nations-nest-egg-1436514755

You take on all the risk you like. The young won’t be paying for it.

“If stock prices fall, pension payouts would further decline. I’m afraid many might commit suicide if all their pension is gone,”

That’s low. Imagine being so lazy that killing yourself seems like a better idea than working.

Emotional abuse + Mugging. Why are they bailing out the generations who failed? Well, it comes at the expense of growth and the prosperity of the young. You starve your children to make your elderly fat and entitled.

Well that’s one way to get the proper wealth transfer. The old have one job, make sure the next generations are better off. History won’t be kind.

Human genetic load dragging us down

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4788123/
The long-term consequence of such effects is an expected genetic deterioration in the baseline human condition, potentially measurable on the timescale of a few generations in westernized societies, and because the brain is a particularly large mutational target, this is of particular concern.” The word is dysgenic for $200.
“Ultimately, the price will have to be covered by further investment in various forms of medical intervention.”


Good luck with dropping global IQ, if anyone dared measure such a thing. Sum IQ/global population is the equation.

Who will pay for this global NHS? Our NHS is already running down with a slight immigrant pressure.

It is slight compared to The World.

As JF has mentioned, “clusters” as seen in racial categorization, pertain to findings of genetic distance.

http://journals.plos.org/plosgenetics/article/file?id=10.1371/journal.pgen.0010070&type=printable

Examination of the relationship between genetic and geographic distance supports a view in which the clusters arise not as an artifact of the sampling scheme, but from small discontinuous jumps in genetic distance for most population pairs on opposite sides of geographic barriers, in comparison with genetic distance for pairs on the same side.

Older fathers’ children have lower evolutionary fitness across four centuries and in four populations

Is that a large enough sample for the manosphere? They don’t like the answer so obviously not.

As if I don’t post topics strategically… tut tut.
https://disenchantedscholar.wordpress.com/2018/01/17/old-men-dead-babies/

“Higher paternal age at offspring conception increases de novo genetic mutations. Based on evolutionary genetic theory we predicted older fathers’ children, all else equal, would be less likely to survive and reproduce, i.e. have lower fitness.”
The sins of the father…
Old dads, no grandkids?
“showed negative paternal age effects on infant survival and offspring reproductive success.”
Sexual selection goes for young men, with better hormone profiles and less obesity.*
Darwin says aged paternal societies are bad for it. Nobody needs your dusty DNA. That’s a sign of corruption – keeping the young men down, not breeding. *another direct link to children again
“Effects survived tests for key competing explanations, including maternal age and parental loss,”
Again, you cannot blame the women.

“We can use our findings to aid in predicting the effect increasingly older parents in today’s society will have on their children’s survival and reproductive success. To the extent that we succeeded in isolating a mutation-driven effect of paternal age, our results can be understood to show that de novo mutations reduce offspring fitness across populations and time periods.”

As close as science gets to settled.

Old fathers are a sign of a dying society. Right up there with strippers and crossdressers. You passed the time period where you were viable with decadence but managed to breed anyway, that society’s social norms are seriously damaged. Applies to women too but paternal age is a bigger factor so I have to spotlight. In a Patriarchy, you would expect fathers are held to the highest standards possible. Their total authority relies on the moral authority consequent of that fact.

Microcephalin and racial brain size

The skulls thing was popular so here.
*gestures wildly*

http://evoandproud.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/the-riddle-of-microcephalin.html

So what is going on? Perhaps the derived Microcephalin allele helps us on a mental task that IQ tests fail to measure. Or perhaps it boosts intelligence in some indirect way that shows up in differences between populations but not in differences between individuals.

What would the term for that be?

The second explanation is the one favored in a recent study byWoodley et al. (2014). The authors found a high correlation (r = 0.79) between the incidence of this allele and a population’s estimated mean IQ, using a sample of 59 populations from throughout the world.

They also found a correlation with a lower incidence of infectious diseases, as measured by DALY (disability adjusted life years). They go on to argue that this allele may improve the body’s immune response to viral infections, thus enabling humans to survive in larger communities, which in turn would have selected for increased intelligence:

Hello, Mutation Load!

Come on down!

And since the brain has been proven part of the immune system since, the theory holds.
The Ice Age hypothesis in A Troublesome Inheritance appears to hold weight, the notion of tribal bonding. Altruism is only pathological if its exertion harms your genetic kin, your ingroup.

There are plenty of HBD blogs, people. Read!

Symmetrical faces belong to the healthiest owners

Do facial averageness and symmetry signal health?
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11182573

calling a direct link to mutation load, also explains why better-looking people age slower and the high IQ, high attractiveness correlation

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26858521
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17238049

“There is a shared concept of what constitutes an “ideal” face. Anthropometric methods are preferable to cephalometric methods in determining the “ideal” face’s dimensions, since anthropometric methods are valid, three-dimensional, non-invasive, suitable for a great variety of purposes, and easy to implement
“distinguishing features make it extraordinarily beautiful. Such features make a female face appear both child like and mature as well as expressive.”

maybe it’s called the male gaze because it’s more objective? lucky for men

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25999883

“the results indicated that both beauty and cuteness were detectable in peripheral vision, but not in the same manner.”

https://brocku.ca/brock-news/2016/06/race-and-age-influence-judgment-of-facial-attractiveness-brock-research/

““This is the first study where we provide direct and strong evidence suggesting that our face recognition models are less refined for these unfamiliar face categories,” she says.”

my theory for yellow fever guys getting short-changed in SMV is correct
but they see us clearly

“Caucasian participants agreed more on the Caucasian faces they found attractive than on the Asian faces they rated as being attractive. Interestingly, Asian participants agreed equally on the attractiveness of both the Asian and Caucasian photos they rated.”

they’re getting screwed but not in the way they think

Trying to go back to the scholarly-type posts, for a little while.

a small breather from all the nonsense clogging the net tubes

book links, academic papers to trigger idiots, that sort of thing

like, at this point-
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12834020

“The last decade has witnessed an upsurge of interest in the research on facial attractiveness. The development of computer graphics has allowed to objectively investigate the conserved features of attractive faces. Averageness, symmetry and sex-specific traits have been associated with attractiveness.”

you’d have to be an idiot

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21650092
“I know you are beautiful even without looking at you: discrimination of facial beauty in peripheral vision.”
