Hate and anger, to name the more rampant examples from the pit lately. Yes, it is that easy. Don't take my word for it though.


[...]
So how you think is really hugely influenced by how you feel. In fact these two things affect each other. Thinking affects feeling and feeling affects thinking. It goes back and forward in a loop. But the dominant factor really is feeling. So for a whole bunch of neuroscientific reasons we haven’t got time to explain. Actually if you want to change what people do, you’ve got to change their thinking. If you want to change their thinking, you actually have to change how they feel. This is a much more significant impact on that than the other way around.
[...]
So under pressure the frontal lobe shuts down in the simplest of tasks. Subtract three from that number. Can’t do it, that is happening to all of you when you’re under pressure. Your brain is built this way, so one of the things you need to learn to do is to get control of that physiological level and switch from a chaotic signal to what’s called coherent. So the thing that underpins brain function is the ability to generate a coherent signal. So there’s variance, but it’s stable variance as opposed to wildly fluctuant variance. And that is the source of your brilliance.

Dr. Alan Watkins: Being Brilliant Every Single Day (Part 1) at TEDxPortsmouth (Transcript)


"They" want to keep us down, you know. At least now you know how they do it and why it's so fcking successful, right?

Be brilliant (again)!

Thanks.

And what do Trump and the media do every day? "Trigger" people's frontal lobe into shutting down so that they act and think on emotion instead of logic.

Anyone else besides me recognizing the enormous psyop being played on us?

Is there a thread you don't bring Trump into the discussion. Is this the extent of your comprehension of the OPs thread?

No wonder ATS has gone donwhill.

Sounds like the title of my next book!

Recognize? Lol, no, you flatter yourself 😑

The difference here, Trump calls it how it is, The Media? The twist and slander because they literally hate Trump, like you and all others of the ilk.

Sure, look at my post history and you'll see plenty of them. What forum is this set in? The political mudpit. Guess what is discussed here or alluded to 99% of the time?

You don't think Trump twists things to suit his agenda as well? How great it must be to be so blindly devoted to someone to think they are infallible and immune to influence and corruption.

Thank god the media bashes him constantly, otherwise you'd have no reason yo believe he's an outsider. Sounds like their manipulation is working.

Dun... Dun... Dun...

I didn't expect that to be the first reply though, kudos to you!

To be perfectly clear here, I don't think the class-warfare picks political sides at this point in the Game of Corruption. We can see a lot of that going on with "the left" or #Resist as well.

Remember, remember; awareness above factions, comrades!

Thank you PO. Much of the video is well known already to some however I really liked that bit about the heart rate and how the slightest stress can create that self induced lobotomy.

As this is in the mud pit I will go as far as to say that there are a few members here who are always going on about Trump's hidden plan, about the ''real'' agenda he is working that is beyond all of our comprehension. I think this is what that is, creating those lobotomies in people who are attempting to make sense of his words and actions. Then again there are those who seem to thrive on the confusion he creates. Go figure.

An example came to mind about being brilliant every day and that is the case of Steph Curry, basketball star par excellence for the Warriors. On average is is one of the best ever but there are days when he is over the top absolutely unbelievable. So unbelievable that you can see it in his face that even he is dumbfounded by his brilliance. Then there are the days when nothing works for him at all, though those days are rare.

And Trump is the only President, who uses his PsyOps specialists for all the bad publicity he doesn't get in Q bits. Sure. And I'm his Diogenius in the flesh.



 


Thank you all for the replies!

The State of Flow is a tricky thing, innit?

Petty much everyone with a secret to hide profits from his Tweets, this whole circus is usually emotionalized enough to run Newsflashs all day long for clicks, ad-quota and profits. Another solid circlejerk for lobotomy right there, chaos beyond factions in a Brave New Corporate Fustercluck.

I can certainly appreciate the concept of not letting emotions cloud your judgement. But, to be honest, I do it all the time.

I have a very old dog for whom I spend a lot of money on vet bills. Friends tell me I should just have her put to sleep. It might be the best financial decision for me, but I just can't do that. We've had many happy years together and if I can spend some money to give her a few more happy months, I will. A decision based on emotion, not logic.

Right now, I have an opportunity to make a little extra money from a job by charging company B for using excess material from company A to make something for company B. Trying not to give too many details here, but neither company would know the difference. I probably would have thrown the extra material away. But whatever I charge company B for the material, I'm giving to company A, with an explanation. Stupid? Maybe, but that's just me.

I guess my point is, we are not machines, we are human. If you want perfect logic every time, use a computer. But I think there is a lot to be said for that part of humanity that says, "It may not make sense, but I have a gut feeling about this." That is the one thing that makes us better than the machines we have created thus far. It may only work out one time in a thousand, but that one time can be worth a million failures. So we progress into being something greater than what we are.

Yes, we can be manipulated through our emotions, but I believe they are also the source of our greatest strength.

Yes, seeing the Hate Trump people and their illogical, emotional drive can be annoying. But you have to admire their unwavering drive and dedication to their cause. I personally feel that the greatest enemy to humanity today is the debt slavery imposed by the international bankers and their fiat currency system. But I'll be damned if I could find the time to post every other day about how much I hate the Federal Reserve Bank. Just imagine if the media and ATS would talk about the Federal Reserve as much as they talk about Trump.

There's a second part to this presentation I forgot to post. The whole 45mins:



Don't get me wrong here. Nobody said that emotions are generally a bad thing, it's just energy in motion. We should be aware of our feeligs in the "basements" in order to take control of our thought process in the loft, that's all.
Compassion is one of those coherent feelings your brain thrives with, to pick up on your example. Detachment (or apathy) would be it's negative pole if you will, leaving you with the kinda chaos in your head to start the lobotomy with again.

That's the whole ordeal in a nutshell. The process of awareness and transformation, that will help you maintain that "State of Flow" you'd need in order to be brilliant.

I, for one, appreciated and enjoyed the post. It brought back a lot of the "stuff" we picked up on in the military.

Stay calm, focus, always think three steps ahead and go there.

Even though there has not been a lot of places where I have fully applied these things since, I am able to always maintain a calmness when things go south in my daily life.

Again; thanks.
