On snake melons

Every Edenic phrenologist’s favorite bogeyman.

SnakeMelon

Snake melons occupy many of the highest positions in the social pyramid, according to my overwatch theory. I haven’t described these positions yet because I’m not quite comfortable with my grasp of the dynamics.

Snake melons are characterized by their unusually verbal-tilted IQs, which seems to average between one and two standard deviations higher than their nonverbal IQs. They have excellent memory recall, are highly attentive to immediate sensory stimuli, and are generally quite perceptive of social dynamics and have an intuitive sense for large-scale societal movements. This gives rise to connoisseurship (wine, food, and entertainment) and a predictable range of academic interests: history, poetry, cultural commentary with stilted prose, breeding and lineage (both human and animal), and of course finance and politics.

Of all the melon types, their crania tend to be the smallest and least impressive. This is in keeping with my observation that brain size primarily predicts gray matter growth, and the general dysgenic trend in this social class. However, the consistently recurring outliers in this respect are bar-none the most dangerous specimens of humanity.

bankid

Their psychological makeup is (IMO) the purest extant expression of the original archaic melonhead suite. Within their preferred fields of banking and politics, they typically dominate the highest tiers and ruthlessly promote each other at the expense of all other types, according to the logic of the melon filtering process. Their sense of who is “family” and who isn’t is uncanny and instinctual—I wouldn’t be surprised if they do it by smell.

Within “the family” they are congenial, and energized by competing in good faith for fun, prestige, and honor. Toward the vast majority of humanity they are domineering and psychopathic, seeing them as animals to be bred for purpose, paid with compliments (and sometimes even rice!), and trained to obedience with whips. I mean that part about seeing them as animals quite literally by the way, unless you actually witness the way they treat “the help” you won’t really understand it.

They do not appreciate visual art except for the historical and iconographic aspects, which may be discussed aloud to garner prestige. Therefore, their taste in clothing and decoration is determined primarily by expense (where more expensive is better), and somehow manages to be both plain and garish, and usually ill-fitting. That which cannot be described in verbal terms simply does not matter—to understand this, imagine they will later write up a report to someone else who is interested in evaluating the other person’s social class.


(Spot the snake: which facial composite was constructed from heads of state? From high-level bankers? From SJWs?)

Their conversational style is perfectly described by the link above, concerned with reality management. They do not believe other people should possess knowledge, which is a form of power—most types must be taught this, but while snake melons respect integrity (in the sense of honoring informal back-room agreements) they instinctually consider openness a bizarre form of retardation. Thus, written contracts and agreements are just part of the game, and subject to change. Their interest with ritualized traditions is a sort of sport they play amongst themselves, because conforming assiduously to such displays inevitably produces minuscule nonconformities of personality that are noted, interpreted, and remembered by highly perceptive observers.

Their weakness is in their extreme reliance on instinct, their insularity, and thus their inability to adapt. Despite their ability to perceive and react to any social trends that follow hard-coded forms, they usually lack the bigmelon industrial processing for symbols and iconography, the thal-back’s ability to distill patterns into essence, the big-eye melon’s incredible empathy, and the owl melon’s peculiar talent for sensing karma and destiny. Thus, they are most powerful during peacetime, prosperity, and stability, and relatively powerless to overcome adversity or survive privation and upheaval. You’ve never seen an emotional outburst until you’ve seen a snake melon lose a job, let alone go without servants or meat.

The most extreme example I know of comes from Italy (naturally). Dante Alighieri:

Though it’s difficult to precisely nail down the snake melon phrenology, there are some things we can say for sure which Dante typifies in the extreme. They have largish hooked noses, angular faces with high cheekbones and pointed chins, smallish heads, slight builds (short, and generally ectomorphic although they are often fat and fleshy), heavy lidding of the eyes (where the flesh below the eyes is bunched), and a generally snake-like appearance that is hard to miss.

The hooked nose predicts extremely predatory behavior, beyond what you’d normally expect from neurotypicals. These are people whose driving motivation in any exchange is personal profit at your expense, and thus they ought to be avoided whenever possible. The pointed chin is associated with the constant scheming of an insatiable villain. Ectomorphism indicates a person whose evolutionary strategy does not include physical work or combat effectiveness. Lidded eyes are another predatory indicator. Positive canthal tilt is fairly common but not characteristic.

Though snake melons are capable of writing policy in grisly detail, they are usually content to delegate this to technocrats and simply disapprove of individual parts that don’t conform to the intended spirit. So long as a couple of poignant details get through, it doesn’t really matter what the rest of a 1,000-page policy says anyway. The rest serves as obfuscatory blather, and certainly isn’t worth missing a cocktail party over just to do it oneself.

Vox Day is an intermediate form between the snake melon and the big-eye melon.

Theodore-Beale

He has the snake’s predatory hooked nose and lidded eyes, the empathic wide-spaced and large eyes (and concommitant sadism), the verbally tilted IQ of a snake, and (oddly) the introversion of deep sockets. NB: the extreme verbal tilt (i.e. well-known visuospatial retardation), combined with a full-battery IQ score of 151, suggests a much higher verbal IQ than he lets on.

    That’s good. One of my old school chums is a Snake melon, as far as I can tell. He doesn’t like to push social boundaries like I do; he is a more apt leader than rebel.

    I was smarter, so did almost all the work in any group projects. One thing that pissed me off about him is how he’d give out answers to questions and the fruit of my labour to other groups for social prestige. He would betray you if it meant a boost in status, and didn’t seem to “get” why that’s messed up.

    Despite that, we are natural allies. My best friends are all MTs though, and my girlfriend is very Thal.

    • Cool blog. Will you be Edenblogging?

      • atonthemelon says:

        Probably not my department, but who knows? Although melon types could use a little character rehabilitation!

        • atonthemelon says:

          Just to clarify: the blog linked to my username is not an Edenist blog, and has nothing to do with Edenism, at least for now. Some people were confused.

          Also, trigger warning for Thals (esp. TTs): it is anti-porn and sexual deviancy.

          • Aeoli Pera says:

            I think most of us are anti-degeneracy, or at least the Christians are. Overcoming dysfunction is hard though.

          • minwu says:

            “Also, trigger warning for Thals (esp. TTs): it is anti-porn and sexual deviancy”
            Why do you view TTs as pro-porn sexual deviants? TTs have the hightest rate of asexuals and asexual wannabes (monasticism is TT).

            Are you against fornication or just against masturbation? If the former, why do you use the “get more girls” as incentive? Anyway, you ignore the demonic/metaphysical element in sexual sin: http://www.greatbiblestudy.com/moral_frailty_demons.php Also, the way you use the picture of Christ in “An Inquiry Into NoFap” may be blasphemous.

            • Aeoli Pera says:

              >Why do you view TTs as pro-porn sexual deviants?

              Probably because shitlibs lean more thal than the general white population. Also see here:

              Try to keep your tone neutral in cross-type communication. I know it’s hard, I screw it up all the time.

            • aton says:

              Maybe TTs go one way or the other: either full-on monastic or homosexual deviant. I’m probably oversimplifying based on the small sample group that comprises my experience.

              “Are you against fornication or just against masturbation?”

              In theory, I’m against both. However, sex is better than masturbation. It’s more social, it isn’t likely to be as deviant, it happens with less frequency. I’m not a black-and-white thinker: if “get more girls” incentivizes self-control, so be it. There are at least several steps between the basement-dwelling pornling and the celibate saint.

              As for the metaphysical elements, I am not ignoring it. I believe it. I just don’t mention it. There’s only so much woo a person can handle at one time.

              Not trying to be intentionally blasphemous. I think it’s fine.

              Low SMV is as low SMV does. Thals are heavily left-shifted in SMV due to social oblivion.

              >However, sex is better than masturbation.

              Dude, you have no idea what it means to be on the bottom. It’s not a question of masturbation or sex, it’s masturbation or murder-suicide.

            • Heaviside says:

              Normalfags can’t comprehend that it was easier for the Rodge to murder six people up close and personal than to get a girlfriend, and he was loaded.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          >Probably not my department, but who knows? Although melon types could use a little character rehabilitation!

          Well-behaved melons rarely make history.

          Previous PR attempts include Through the Eyes of the Owl and Eden’s Thaw. Both authors seem to have deleted their blogs.

          • atonthemelon says:

            I was in contact with the author of Eden’s Thaw a couple years ago–good guy. We had more than a few things in common. Didn’t know about the Owl dude.

            Sad to see the blog go, but I wouldn’t call Eden’s Thaw an Edenist blog, despite the title. It was more about Life stuff, which is typical.

            Edenism is something only someone with Thal expression could come up with. Melon cognition eschews complexity. The only contribution we can make is simplifying it for the masses. Just reading your blog and the Altrugenics forum is fascinating to me–it’s as if you guys speak a different language entirely. I have made allowances for the possibility that y’all are just smarter than me, but sometimes I think Thals just prefer to communicate in code.

            I don’t think we will see any PR campaigns any time soon. It’s not in us, we’re not as interesting as Thals, and there aren’t many of us interested in Edenism (most melons are off dong fun melon things instead). In fact, I would except nearly all MMs who know about Edenism to be of the bigeye variety, because extreme empathy is a kind of social dysfunction, and all introverted people are dysfunction in some way.

      Sounds right.

  2. Heaviside says:

    In my opinion, people overestimate the power that bankers and elected politicians have.

  3. podrag says:

    Playing devil’s advocate: they do feed off shit tier goons as well that might prey on you if they weren’t kept in check by these kids of people. Being snakes they eat rats and weasels and stinging insects and things. Snakes exist in nature just like they exist in society. Globalisation causes too much overgrowth of their influence though. But we are in uncharted waters in many ways. I think Heaviside is right in the way that people overestimate their influence overall.

    • podrag says:

      In a way they’re quite fair and predictable if you have a strong stomach. They don’t believe in conventional morality but they do sort of have their own ‘system’ that makes sense in and of itself once you understand it. They realise that they need a strong ‘society’ in which to exist and the belief in ‘society’ sort of goes without saying.

      • podrag says:

        So they’ll often advocate alt-righty type opinions like Vox, realising that without those opinions they might have actually do icky stuff.

        • podrag says:

          Too many of them together in one place I think amplifies many of their negative behaviours. I think they might start out in business, banking or Hollywood understanding that profit, employment, banks and propaganda are important cohesive factors in modern society and allows them to omnomnom within a stable, regenerative jungle ecosystem. But a snake pit is an entirely different thing. Something to consider.

          • podrag says:

            Sort of like when you get too many Thards in one place and they start talking about My Little Pony

            • podrag says:

              Also in your experience with them these people are very sort of ‘rank’ and ‘chain of command’ focussed. Quite like MTs in that way. They probably employed you because you’re smart and they’d hope smart enough not to go asking too many questions and stuff and eventually as you just started knowing stuff they’d sort of have to promote you. Not like MTs because you ‘deserve’ it, but more Nietzschian because you can begin to demonstrate understanding and meta-understanding. They’re very practical like that, whereas other kinds of melons might call you up on your Corps d’Esprit.

            • Aeoli Pera says:

              >Sort of like when you get too many Thards in one place and they start talking about My Little Pony

              Hater.

          • Aeoli Pera says:

            >Too many of them together in one place I think amplifies many of their negative behaviours.

            Because insularity. They remain ruthless and lose all perspective because insulated.

            >I think they might start out in business, banking or Hollywood understanding that profit, employment, banks and propaganda are important cohesive factors in modern society and allows them to omnomnom within a stable, regenerative jungle ecosystem. But a snake pit is an entirely different thing. Something to consider.

            Unlike the other sorts, if snake melons all disappeared tomorrow I believe the world would immediately be a better place. Note that reduction of suffering is *not* necessarily a bad thing because Christianity, but anesthetic is still a good idea for certain. So there’s some situational ethics involved here.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          >So they’ll often advocate alt-righty type opinions like Vox, realising that without those opinions they might have actually do icky stuff.

          Good observation.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      >Playing devil’s advocate: they do feed off shit tier goons as well that might prey on you if they weren’t kept in check by these kids of people. Being snakes they eat rats and weasels and stinging insects and things.

      Good points. I just wish they would stop breeding slaves at such ridiculously high rates that totalitarianism becomes the only possible response.

      >I think Heaviside is right in the way that people overestimate their influence overall.

      And yet, they are the reason neither of us has any money.

      • podrag says:

        Nah man if it was a purely snake melon thing I’d do OK I think and you probably would too. We’re just collateral damage IMO. Don’t fixate and project because something is difficult. Learn, build and overcome instead.

        • Heaviside says:

          It’s the inevitable nature of capitalism to concentrate power in the wealth in the hands of a very small number of people and reduce everyone else to debt slavery. The grand bourgeoisie will NEVER quit unless there is a serious risk they and their entire extended families will end up raped and burned alive. This was the real problem with OWS: no dead cops or bankers.

  4. podrag says:

    You might even have been promoted to henchman

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      M-backs typically find me unreliable in the short term and reliable in the long term (correct), which seriously limits their willingness to rely on me.

      • podrag says:

        Heuristic: for someone like you being reliable in the short term is doing exactly as you are told. Being reliable in the long term is largely doing as you wish. The trick is to manage energy levels and they won’t care because r-Type.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          >Heuristic: for someone like you being reliable in the short term is doing exactly as you are told.

          Heuristic 2: For someone like me, I have to be willing to set a higher price on my time or else scope creep.

          • podrag says:

            Yeah basically it’s an energy management issue. Both heuristics could work. You’re a big phone with a small battery and like you need to be on therefore management.

    So Dante was a reptilian pureblood, aside from being the most unacknowledged catholic theologian (the Divine Comedy is the unacknowledged source of western eschatology).

    “Ectomorphism indicates a person whose evolutionary strategy does not include physical work or combat effectiveness”
    So I was right: somatotype is caste. Ectomorph = priest.

    “the owl melon’s peculiar talent for sensing karma and destiny”
    Karma = destiny + reincarnation. Notice reincarnation is uncompatible with christianity:

    Will you write a topic for each edenic type or just for melons?
