Reactions to stupidity

How do you react to stupidity? Do you get sad? Angry? Disgusted? Humorous? Giddy? Because g is generally interchangeable with IQ, we can use low intelligence as a stand-in for weakness. So your reaction to stupidity generally signals whether you’re nurturing, predatory, etc. Reference:

There are three possible reactions to in-group weakness: sadness, anger, fear, and disgust. Sadness comes from the perception that a person’s weakness decreases group strength, and the belief that you’re powerless to change this (feeling “smaller” than the problem). Anger comes from the same perception, and the belief that you (being “bigger” than the problem) ought to modify their behavior with positive punishment. (If you don’t know how to fix the problem though, this desire to fix it will result in frustration = anger * sadness.) Disgust is the same perception and the belief that such weakness is an existential threat, resulting in emotional out-grouping (reduction of the problem’s size via distance) and an attitude demanding “distance or fire”. Fear obviously indicates a feeling that someone else’s weakness will put you in danger.

If stupidity makes you happy, this means you regard the weak person as out-group competition, so that their downfall is your success. Righteous fury is the predatory desire to profit by punishing competition. Contempt indicates a desire to cull the in-group via out-grouping. Heartbreak (“disappointment” would have been a better word) indicates a failure to correctly anticipate stupidity, combined with feelings of powerlessness. Outrage (characteristic of SJWs) is the same, except coupled with the desire to punish instead of powerlessness. This makes an amount of sense, because the “surprise” comes from a failure to be moral within their pseudo-religious framework, ergo “stupid”. I think the most insidious emotional reaction is horror, which is the recognition that Idiocracy is real life. I suspect that part of the social dysfunction that afflicts many extraordinarily smart people is the constant feeling that they’re living in a horror movie.

So to summarize some of this free association:

Fear <- Perception that stupidity will cause danger
Sadness <- Perception of stupidity and personal powerlessness
Anger <- Perception of stupidity and personal responsibility
Disgust <- Perception of stupidity as insidious, existential danger
Happiness <- Perception of weakness as opportunity
(Surprise <- Failure to correctly anticipate behavior, as usual)
(Worship <- Doesn't occur, unless weakness is redefined as strength as in "diversity is our strength")

The Heroine’s Journey in Mulan

The Heroine’s Journey shall be defined as a girl’s quest to be the first to invade a male space, and thereby secure a much higher value husband than her SMV would normally allow.

The movie begins by showing us that Mulan is a selfless, sweet-natured Good Girl (AKA awkward nerdy girl with glasses and low self-consciousness, in modern sensibilities). But for one reason or another (beyond her control, obviously), the simple life of staying home and wifing up just isn’t sympatico. What is her call to action? The man in her life, her niceguy father, just isn’t up to the task of being a man. Female entryism is a Freudian phenomenon so we can’t avoid talking about the weird, uncomfortable phenomena of sexual transference and the incest taboo.

Distressed that her tribe’s men are insufficient and unattractive, Mulan’s penis envy is released from its incest taboo and manifests as a desire to invade (where the natural state is for men to invade, and women to invite). Thus, she castrates her father by taking his sword and assuming his aspect, as I predicted in the composite countryman and racial infidelity: “The patriarchal image is expected to react with a dominance display, therefore boosting his attractiveness, and if he fails to do this she will castrate and enslave him.”

This makes sense from an r/k perspective because women in places with low paternal investment have to fend for themselves. As we discovered yesterday in the notorious T-shirt thread at VP, when men are unable or unwilling to kill for their women and children this produces a fundamental insecurity that modifies their phenotypal expression (SSMV, in male terms). You may benefit from reading all of my comments in that thread.

In this next scene, please note the symbolism of the mother retreating and the father dousing the candle (fire = libido).

In the process of trying to become the man her father couldn’t be, Mulan meets the four masculine archetypes…


…the Lover, Magician, Warrior…


…and of course, the King.


Hijinks ensue.

Be a man

Mulan falls in love with the King, naturally, because that’s literally her job as a woman. Once the masculine role has been fulfilled by REAL MEN she can return to the safety of her feminine role and start looking around to bag the highest-value male. This highlights a sociosexual tension for leaders of men. On the one hand, allowing women into any male group destroys its strength through intra-group sexual competition, and the purpose of male groups is strength. On the other hand, a leader of men must be possessed of unusual masculine libido, which means that at its core the point of being a leader is to be sexually successful.

The Western synthesis of this paradox has traditionally been monogamy, where the group’s Alpha parcels out the feminine spoils won through group strength, but how many priests, pastors, generals, etc. have you actually seen to do this? Probably zero. More likely they were inviting more women into leadership roles and castigating the next generation of men as weak and creepy (another Freudian phenomenon released by R-selection: seeing sons as sexual competitors, and thus castrating them).

When the unbeatable foes appear, Mulan defeats them by directing the masculine libido in a way that causes a cascade effect of released potential energy. (This imagery recalls the “waterfall” question on the Maykorner test.)

In short, “let’s you and him fight”. Because as I said in the clown post, “the essence of all libido is misdirection”.


Please note the sexual symbolism here in this gif.

In all of this, Mulan is accompanied by a small serpent, which represents the female libido, who plays the functional role of her “conscience”.


As always, I’m left wondering how much of this the creators were consciously aware of. What I’ve begun to realize, from observing the various conspiracies being unveiled in PizzaGate, WeinsteinGate, etc., is that the answer is probably “all of it”.

In any case, we must take note that the feminine imperative contains a clear dichotomy: she must either castrate every man she meets, or submit to him. This is why, as Vox says, “The death knell is the female preachers. I don’t know why, exactly, but once a church reaches that point, you can rest assured that it isn’t coming back.” It’s the sexual nature of women to castrate any man in her care, for the crime of being weak enough to be under her. This goes for composites as well, like corporations, churches, et al. The nature of woman is to destroy male spaces until she finds one that’s too strong (high-value) for her to destroy it, then bag the highest-value man she can get. They can’t control this desire to destroy, they can only be contained.

Field report

Now’s I have enough money to support myself, I’m starting to look for an IRL waifu for to engage in 3-D degeneracy and pop out some niglets. To this end, I tapped my massive GENIUS and manosphere background to set myself the following curriculum:

Weekly: Chateau Heartiste boildown podcast (I’m a big believer in reviewing fundamentals)
1. The Rational Male (book)
2. Mystery Method
3. The Style Guide
4. Day Bang
5. Married Man Sex Life (book)

Because I’m looking for a conscientious, introverted Christian girl, my focus will be on indirect approaches, day game, and environments where such girls may be found such as:

1. Churches
2. Libraries
3. Hardware/specialty stores
4. Family network
5. Accounting classes and departments

My frame couldn’t be tighter because, to be perfectly frank, I’m more interested in finding a free secretary than sex. Genius comes with serious mindfulness issues.

This evening I went to the grocery store, and realized I could start doing some indirect approaches. What I discovered is that, between my complete lack of approach anxiety (i.e. lack of social anxiety) and my unusually high creative drive, I’m very good at generating situational openers. Here are the three I used:

1. Excuse me, I have to buy my little sister something for secret Santa this year, what should I get?
2. What’s your favorite six-dollar wine? I’d go as high as six fifty if necessary. (This was successful with a young 7. I didn’t find her recommendation, so if I’d seen her again I would have accused her of “lying” about its existence to re-engage her and her friend.)
3. Is that color natural? I absolutely must know. (Directed to a fellow ginger.)

All of these have the distinct advantage of being questions about things I genuinely wanted to know. Though this isn’t necessary, I expect it gives the interaction a more genuine flavor than a canned opener, which will be more successful for me because I’m very bad at acting. However if I’m in a tight spot I’ll probably reuse #1, because there’s a large range of possible follow-up questions to use as a hook and the girl’s answer projects a lot about her. These questions also have the advantage of being playful subjects—so if a girl is already attracted or generally in a playful mood, this gives her plausible deniability to have some fun talking to me.

Something else I learned is why it’s so natural for a high-status man to do the false time constraint gambit and then turn around and hook. In the latter example above the ginger girl was an HB3, whereas I’m objectively a 5 but more like a 6 or 7 to feminine, introverted women on account of my novelty-generating mind and high testosterone. (It also helps if the girl is lighter-skinned than me, which this ginger gal was—this doesn’t happen often!) Anyway, I wasn’t interested and she clearly was, because when I started toward the door she followed me (on a plausibly sidelong path) and, when I re-engaged her, she undid her hair and started tossing it. If I’d known what to do in that situation I’d have gone for a number close but I’m only just starting chapter 4 of Mystery Method.

Here’s the thing: I didn’t turn around and re-engage because I wanted this girl’s number. I did it because I felt bad for getting her hopes up and leaving her in the lurch, and I wanted to drop a compliment to make the letdown a little brighter. That patronizing instinct is why it works.

Anyway, I bet I’m going to end up being very good at this. Need to figure out the whole morality of premarital sex thing ahead of time because it’s going to come up sooner rather than later and I’d rather make the decision with my big head.

Wood hanging – for those of you who worry

My brother and I made this.


It’s four feet by three feet and looks even better in person.

I’ve been wrestling with the question of whether to virtue signal more as a way of expressing that this blog isn’t the only thing I do. I decided in favor of virtue signalling more. You have to get out in the world and make something of your talents, and I’m doing that every day. If my example shames you into getting your life together, then it’s my responsibility to show off a bit.

Can’t say I’ll remember to do it every day or even catch up on my e-mail but action is the measure of conviction and conviction is the measure of belief. My actions will catch up to this new belief…eventually. I am only a turtle, after all.

Interests -> Energy -> Value -> Relationships -> Momentum -> Framing -> Focus -> Mastery/Flow -> Happiness -> Success

Alt-Right cosmology and the Ocarina of Time

Everything you need to know about what low-church Alt-Rightists believe is contained in the video game Zelda: Ocarina of Time. To spare myself a bit of time, I’ll be explaining them both in one breath. It pains me somewhat to ruin Ocarina of Time because I know a lot of aspies really like it.

The basic story is about Link’s Hero’s Journey to defeat the dragon and save the princess. Pretty standard for a masculine coming-of-age tale in the Western tradition. The psychoanalytic symbolism is spot-on too: when the child obtains the three childish spiritual stones (chakras), this is the rite of passage to enter the Temple of Time to become a full-grown man with a larger sword (penis/chi/vitalism) and greater responsibility to subdue a dark, imposing world. As backstory we have a world created by the three goddesses of Wisdom (superego), Strength (id/libido), and Courage (Ego).

This is the part that will probably ruin it for a lot of you. The chakras are not arrayed as you might expect, in the New Age style of counting seven from sacrum to crown. Instead, the three childish spiritual stones and six adult temple medallions are laid out as a Star of David centered on a phoenix, suggesting Masonic Kabbalism.

Chamber of Sages

After our dolicocephalic Nordic noble self-actualizes into the Hero of Time and brings light unto the world, he goes to the dark tower and defeats the source of all chaos: a Khazarian racial avatar named Ganondorf.

“The contract is really just a formality, goy, no need to read it.” *vigorous hand-rubbing intensifies*


“I don’t enjoy haggling, you should just set a price and I’ll decide to pay it or not.” *vigorous javelin-throwing montage intensifies*

This goes back to the Manichean anthropology of John deNugent, whose racial genesis Mongol Thal Warrior was kind enough to summarize in a series of direct quotes on Altrugenics.

DeNugent’s anthropology is significantly different from us, but I believe it’s very necessary if we Edenists can learn from him and integrate the systems together. According to DeNugent, both the Cro Magnids (a mixture of square-faced Faelids, Mediterranids / Atlantids and Alpinids) and the Nordids came from space, and then intermix here. Neanderthals, meanwhile, where their bitter adversaries then and now, but DeNugent believes the modern descendants of Neanderthals were Jews and Semitic-influenced people of the Middle East and North Africa.

DeNugent (over)appreciation thread: the most interesting man on the Net / Altworld

In prehistoric times, criminals were often expelled from the clan, sent off to fend for themselves, and then, if lucky, were able to find and join up with other criminals. This is how the Habiru, the proto-Hebrews (the early Jews) were formed, from a horde of roaming bad guys. A vicious alien, Yahweh, then selected this group to be his people and instrument.

John deNugent
UPDATED What race were the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans? Cro-Magnons and Nordics — the two waves from the galaxy that made us

Primacy of the Yahweh Question confirmed for Indoaryan paganism.

Egypt was formed by dissidents who left Atlantis in fear and disgust after it became corrupted by a group called the Sons of Baal, who were the Jews in an earlier incarnation. Atlantis became increasingly wicked, the openly satanic, orgiastic, greedy and oppressive — very similar to the history of the United States.

Atlantis began tampering with nature and mining in such as blindly greedy way that the crust of the earth itself was damaged. It thus began to flood on its outer edges for generations before its final collapse, and more and more people left it, particularly after the failure of a conservative group called the Sons of the Law of One to retake power.

Luzifer vs. Ahriman, restated as Stan Gooch’s polarities.

Gooch polarities

Mayan and Aztec temples depicted the evil Grey aliens as gods; the Short Greys are brilliant, soulless, heartless flesh machines who serve the tall, long-nosed Greys, and terrorize humans at their wish and command

Going back to Egypt, alien, transdimensional, and amoral beings became its gods, and two different groups of them fought vicious battles with each other, just as in Sumerian, Greek and Viking sagas.

The upper class of Egypt (rulers and priests) was nordic, and thus the neanderthalic semites (first Jews, then Arab muslims) had to try to destroy them at the behest of their true masters.

Basically he takes the same position as Stan Gooch’s Jewish identitarian Edenism movement, which shares significant aspects with neanderthal theory. The paleo diet is inspired by the “blood type diet”, which proposes that angelic master race O-negative blood types ought to eat meat and veggies rather than carbs, which are for rhesus-positive agricultural peasant monkeys. As usual, there’s an element of truth in this, which is why the lies go down so easy. But deNugent turns it around to say that Cro Magnon and Nordic Swiderians (aka melon-headed Hyperboreans) carry the Logos in their blood whereas neanderthal rodeo clowns are the real ITZ.

Just assume, for a moment, that “white” = indoaryan cro magnons and “Jew” = neanderthals, and you will find this moral framework maps precisely to the cultural polarities emphasized by Andrew Anglin, The Right Stuff, etc., and it explains why their concept of sin = degeneracy (chaos/disorder) and Evil = Jews (darkbringers), understood as the embodiment of Jung’s Shadow (which embodiment appears to be mostly correct).

Naturally, the Zelda universe goes beyond low-church Indoaryanism to account for the Illuminati, a shadowy race of sheikah (wisemen) which serves and protects the royal family.


The Star of David thing makes more sense in light of these stand-ins for Rosicrucians.

Last note is that the Hylians are descended from the goddess Hylia (of whom Zelda is an avatar). This corresponds to the Lillin being descended from Lillith in Evangelion.

Aside from the solipsism of Jungian paganism, I dismiss this belief system as childish because it has nothing to say about sacrifice, much less self-sacrifice. On the other hand, it’s still quite superior to the Enlightenment, which is half the point of it.

Abstract insightfulness

More Aeolitalk. One of these days I ought to update that page.

I’ve decided to redefine abstract intuition as “knowing something without knowing how or why you know it, at a level of intellectual abstraction where this knowing can’t be plausibly explained by pure instinct”.

I believe the following example from the old VP thread The Excluded may be described as abstract intuition.

One of the stranger experiences of this IQ range is that I often know with certainty that a novel mathematical fact is true, but then I have to spend 2 to 4 weeks developing a rigorous proof that tells me how I knew it was true. (To be precise, I did know how I knew, but not in anything remotely resembling human math-paper communication.) Intuition is a strange beast.

Berkeley Math Professor, IQ 150

As it says in the definition, it’s not plausible that a person of IQ 150 would have developed this ability if he were raised by wolves (contra Ramanujan, who might as well have been raised by wolves but likely had an IQ in the 170-180 range). So there’s a component of nurture, indicating the development of complex instincts (i.e. intuitions) must be developed.

Abstract insightfulness is the tendency to immediate generation of new mental models (generally nonverbal) from less abstract ones to explain the immediate situation, as enabled by overpowered capabilities in conceptual formation, pattern recognition, factor analysis, and sensory processing. In contrast with my sort of insights, which I’d describe as the low end of temporal lobe epilepsy, I suspect abstract insights have a subjective experience comparable to rapid-fire gestalt shifts. Think of walking in a room, noticing everyone is wearing sandals, noticing that in your experience nothing ever got done in rooms of people wearing sandals, noticing that this is inherent to the design of sandals and the decision to wear sandals…etc etc etc.

This description is inspired by a couple of the examples (which I’ve bolded) of seemingly magic powers in this link that Trebizond dropped:

Furthermore, where the moderately gifted person has a “skill collection”, the profoundly gifted individual has what might as well be magic powers…Profoundly gifted individuals have been known to do things like reinventing the steam engine at age six. Some of them can walk into a room and in an instant infer what kind of presentation is going to be given, and what kind of organization is going to give it. They have been known to make penetrating observations of connections between vastly different disciplines. Some have written a book in a week. Others remember everything they have read. Verbatim. Another still has invented a crude physics and using it to solve problems before she was old enough to talk. It’s entirely plausible for a profoundly gifted individual to think for a few hours about a philosophical school he’s just read about, and have a better grasp of the assumptions and implications surrounding that school than scholars who have studied the discipline for years. Many accomplishments are less extreme than that. Some are more extreme. I said that they might as well be magic powers because they are no more believable to many people than levitation or fairies granting wishes. Moderately gifted achievements are envied. Profoundly gifted achievements are disbelieved, and one social lesson the profoundly gifted learn is that there are certain accomplishments that you don’t talk about… which feels the way most people would feel if people were shocked and offended when they tried to say, “I can read,” or for that matter, “I can breathe.”

These people do not think of themselves as having magic powers. Their impressive abilities are no more breathtaking or astonishing to them than our impressive abilities of walking through an unfamiliar room or understanding a children’s book are to us—and if you don’t believe that walking through an unfamiliar room or understanding a children’s book is an astonishing mental feat, just spend a year in artificial intelligence.

C.J.S. Hayward
The Mindstorm

The primary difference between abstract insightfulness and abstract intuition is that I think profoundly gifted people are stacking new conceptual models on each other so quickly and continually that they’d never be able to verbalize them quickly enough for their conscious minds to keep up. I expect you’d find unusually high adult neurogenesis in these individuals. This would produce a sort of autistic personality entirely different from autism spectrum disorder, where a person’s difficulty in communication is caused by the logistical impossibility of explicitly deconstructing the network of nonverbal conceptual models that produced a conclusion.

“How did you build that steam engine, Suzie?”
(Confused) “…Because that’s how you make it go.”

If my thoughts are correct or nearly so (nevermind how well they’re expressed), then I think I can explain the Alumnus’ dissatisfaction with IMSA.

It’s a commonplace that the gifted can have a rough time of school. What IMSA does is place the profoundly gifted in the position of fixed pace classes designed for people significantly less intelligent than them.

It’s easier to criticize than it is to give a positive alternative; let me give a positive alternative.

First of all, profoundly gifted students can pick things up much more rapidly even than most IMSA students. Something like a factor of four speedup can happen again and again. Many of these students would tear through textbooks if you let them…

They will discover things for themselves. But if you look at learning styles, the profoundly gifted are some of the most able to understand a crystallized abstraction, and the most likely to work ahead in their textbooks.

IMSA may have a dozen or so profoundly gifted individuals at any one time…

Furthermore, as well as standing in need of conceptual education, profoundly gifted students could benefit from personal development to help them meet the rest of the world. I don’t know whether it would be correct to say that average education should be about knowledge, gifted education should be about how to think, and profoundly gifted education should be about personal development. I think the idea is worth considering. And I would try to develop some things that aren’t needed in average education and less needed in moderately gifted education, such as how to bridge the gap and meet the rest of the world.


What I’m getting here is that gifted education is about fostering an addiction to noticing (the first half of genius), where profoundly gifted kids are already noticing at such a high level that it can produce pathological social development. For example, Trebizond’s pullquote suggests they need to be given resources to train them out of the gnostic fallacy which tends to develop when your unconscious mental processes are so powerful that they can get you whatever you want and out of any jam…as if you had magic powers.

(And as always, there’s the looming possibility that I’m wrong and this is all made up in my head.)
