yet, emotions aren’t facts..

they don’t exist beyond our experience of reality - they are a function of our existence ..

there exists only #OR - objective reality ..
#love doesn’t exist beyond the function of survival of human offspring - - when the male stays with his children, he fends off potential male predators from killing them;
#empathy doesn’t exist beyond human kind, it is still very rare in the middle phase of human evolution;
the newest empathic neurotype believe that human predators such as Trump, Bolsonaro, Hitler etc are ‘evil’, yet predatory instincts evolved first in human species, driving predatory species like the Neanderthal for hundreds of millions of years — modern predators are a legacy..

1/2) An ancient “magician”: Before Spartacus another slave led a huge revolt; the charismatic Syrian slave Eunus gathered tens of thousands of followers to his uprising, attracted to the 'prophet' by his magical powers; most notably breathing fire as he spoke to the gods!.. Image
2/2) Unfortunately, Eunus' amazing hotline to the gods wasn't as magical as it seemed. Later writers outed his trick: igniting a perforated and sulphur-filled nutshell hidden in his mouth, which then emitted fire and sparks as he spoke! Eunus' slave revolt was defeated in 132 BC. Image
The career of the amazing Eunus is described by Diodorus Siculus (The Library, 35.2) as well as by Florus (The History of Rome) and Livy (Epitome 2.7) #magic #magiccircle #mentalism #religion #psychology @DerrenBrown #roman #history

Was reading upon #Biases & learnt a lot. Thought of sharing a few pointers .
Simply put Bias is a disproportionate weight in favour of or against any idea/thing in all aspects of life.
Few types of Biases ( out of the many) with not so random images. :)
The #DunningKruger effect now is fairly well known , wherein people with limited knowledge overestimate their competence, whilst the actually knowledgeable question themselves often .
"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge".
A very interesting bias wherein we credit our successes to purely ourselves, but when things go awry we cite luck & external forces .
Rings any bells?
Basically a defence mechanism to protect our self esteem & eventually from personal responsibility.

Put #socialdilemma on your must-watch list. Most sane folks already know much of what is going on with SM, but that movie is a neat summary of everything that has gone wrong with SM. Technology has evolved faster than human consciousness and it has made beasts of billions.
Psychologically,the phenomenon is a no-brainer for anyone who understands the basic mechanism of learning & conditioning. How reward mechanisms arnd vanity & the need to say something,anything, work. How othering works. How habituation & the need for larger dose 4 next high works

Here. I drew the frozen rope to drive the point home. No predicting here. Just something to visualize and step back and look around. Price action should always confirm the secondary indicators that have been flashing euphoria for quite some time now. Image
Also recall, that if using the 1999-2000 analog, we had several corrections along the way from 1357 to 5132 on the . Bear this in mind. Intermediate corrections (if we get one) are healthy in a roaring bull market. Image

"It is crucial that those who can restrain him act now or be prepared to do so. Not only our democracy as so many have said, but our lives may depend on it."

Superb study showing that #gifted kids who accelerate (e.g., through advanced classes or grade skipping) experience no negative long-term effects on their psychological well-being.

This aligns with my two studies showing that grade skippers earn more money as adults (though neither study can show a casual relationship). #psychology #gifted #education #edutwitter……

Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!
3/ns The worst case scenario for us is therefore the one in which after loosing previous escalations, #CCP China escalates to a full fledged war/attack on India, by shifting US-facing troops and highest quality equipment towards India. This has proved paralyzing for past Govts!🤔

don’t even get me started on singular #psychology -
it is a breeding ground of biblically inspired empty signifiers, evil scapegoating, self flagellation, medieval punishment dressed in meaningless meta - language that seeks divinity in homo sapiens, while ignoring evolution..
singular #philosophy- same: desperately, desperately seeking divinity in homo sapiens that j u s t isn’t there..

except the despised, ignored, cancelled Nietzsche
singular #science - while desperately holding onto imaginary divinity of homo sapiens ignores actual problems:

HIV - unsolved
Covid-19 - unsolved
cancer - unsolved
Alzheimer’s- unsolved
depression - unsolved
autism - unsolved
Down syndrome- unsolved
LGBTQ - unsolved

Who is a psychologist? Why do we need one? I'm not crazy, why should I visit a psychologist? I would rather talk to a friend instead of talking to a psychologist. Approaching a psychologist puts my honour at risk, and also my family's.
Several questions of such kind always occur in our mind, when it is suggested to us to visit a psychologist. We need to understand why it is important to talk to a psychologist when in need. We need to understand the importance of being aware, and taking care of our mental health
And before that, it is important to understand what a psychologist is and how he or she can help us when in need.

Born as 3rd daughter in a culture where birth of a daughter is resented by many, my parents had to deal with 'eerie' solutions from society to get rid of the "burden" that I was about to become. But, my visionary parent-warriors had their armours on! 😇

2006! #Psychologists "predicted" #anxiety & "catastrophizing" would "predict the presence & intensity of persistent #headache, as well as other non-pain physical symptoms of headache." HA+nonpain=#migraine. If headache has non-pain symptoms, it's #migraine…
✔️ FACT "Researchers believe that #migraine is the result of fundamental neurological abnormalities caused by genetic mutations at work in the brain." New models help scientists study "the biological cascade, genetic components & mechanisms of migraine."…
Participants in the 2006 study got 1 #anxiety or #castrophizing point per #migraine symptom: light/sound sensitivity; nausea; visual disturbance; speech difficulty; 1-sided weakness, numbness, tingling.

✔️ These are all standard migraine symptoms (& just the START of the fun).

Today's Learning: Spotlight Effect - We believe others are paying more attention to our appearance and behavior than they really are. In reality, its not so. We also tend to believe that our emotions are more obvious than they are (Illusion of transparency).
Today's Learning: Do not be over optimistic about future events (Unrealistic Optimism). Practice Defensive pessimism, the adaptive value of anticipating problems and prepared to face them. As a Chinese proverb says "Be prepared for danger while staying in peace." #psychology
Today's learning: Immune Neglect: The human tendency to underestimate the speed and strength of the psychological immune system,which enables emotional recovery and resilience after bad things happen. We are amazingly resilient in most circumstances.#psychology #Myers

The predicament I’m in: I’m definitely what MH professionals would call “depressed,” “anxious” and pretty much fit the diagnosis known as “PTSD.” But... the most traumatizing thing that has ever happened to me, I can’t talk about with a MH “professional...” 1/ #psychtwitter
8. Whenever I asked them if the meds could cause some of this, they always said no way! So I believed them. They would say things like “you’ll have to take them for the rest of your life,” “you’ll never have kids,” “you’ll never heal” or “finish school.”
10. You can watch part of the story of what happened here: basically I developed #akathisia & SEVERE #benzo withdrawal. I could barely speak for 4 months, had seizure like episodes, constant intrusive suicidal thoughts for 22 months, & so much more.

"Our times have demonstrated what it means when the gates of the psychic underworld are thrown open. Things whose enormity nobody could have imagined in the idyllic innocence of the first decade of our century have happened & have turned the world upside down." ~C.G. Jung, CW 18
"Ever since, the world has remained in a state of schizophrenia. … No wonder the Western world feels uneasy, for it does not know how much it plays into the hands of the uproarious underworld and what it has lost through the destruction of its numinosities." ~C.G. Jung, CW 18
"It has lost its moral and spiritual values to a very dangerous degree. Its moral and spiritual tradition has collapsed, and has left a worldwide disorientation and dissociation." ~C.G. Jung, CW 18, par. 581
