Blood type ramble

Since the forum has been down for a couple of days, I was filling this hole in my life by rereading the single altrugenics blog post that Stoddard wrote (with input from Koanic). From there I got sidetracked into thinking about racial blood types and found my way to this chart.

It’s difficult to parse this sort of thing in one sitting, but I found an obvious observation about Type-O blood that connected to a couple of other weirdo theories that have been festering in the back of my mind. This type of blood seems to trace back to the original slave caste that was bred for pyramid-building (both literally and as a metaphor for the social structure). You can look at the incidence of Type-O in a population and use that as a surprisingly predictive index of how easy it would be to enslave that population for the purpose of pushing blocks up ramps. Think of it as an index of large-group submissiveness. The highest purity is found in the new world Indio populations who were doing this most recently, and would do it again for 25 cents per hour if an enterprising melonhead decided to manifest his Egyptology fetish.

(Keep in mind what I said on the forum: the lack of pyramids in India doesn’t count because the positions of many ancient religious sites were chosen according to sacred geometry, not convenience. See David Flynn.)

Groups with other blood types in their populations would be less amenable to pyramid building for various reasons. Africans, for instance, aren’t emotionally suited to slavery. Some groups have remnants of a strong tribal or warrior culture, like the Maoris. High-IQ groups tend to have a lot of high-agency individuals who tend to play political games. But you can track down the list and see a trend that groups with a high incidence of Type-O blood also have a high incidence of “natural slaves”, in terms of emotional expression and political leanings.

A curious divide in Type-O blood can be found in the native North American population between the Blackfeet in the northwest (17 percent, extreme low-end outlier) and the Navajo in the southwest (73 percent, a high-end outlier). A similarly curious divide exists between the Andamanese and the Nicobarese in the islands off of southeast Asia (which are extremely isolated breeding populations). I’m not comfortable to talk anthropology in any kind of detail, but here are some broader speculations.

Imagine that Plato’s “Atlantis” refers to the antediluvian world civilization that built the pyramids, bred humans and animals for fun and profit, and shared a single language and culture. If the flood myth refers to the glaciers receding back to the poles, then we’d expect this civilization to be a ring concentrated more-or-less around the equator in the temperate zone where the effective cost of living (disease and other risks) was lower. We’d also expect the oceans to be a bit lower, so a lot more land was showing, many islands would have been peninsulas, and so forth. Many of the older cities would have been located near the ancient sea level and would nowadays be underwater. The ruins found on land now, the “highlands” of those days, would tend to have been the most recent and relatively backward in comparison to the coastal metropolitan areas.

The remnants of the slave caste are not a particularly progressive bunch. You don’t see much in the way of linguistic divergence here, the way you’d expect with tribes of hunter-gatherers (think North American Indians or neanderthals). In fact, if we take the story of the Tower of Babel as indicative, the tendency to linguistic divergence is the literal opposite trait of pyramid building. (I sometimes wonder if the references in the Bible indicate the beginnings of an antediluvian space program.) Some of these slaves were mixed into the African melting pot, but for the most part they stayed put and continued to live in large groups with static cultures, experiencing a low rate of linguistic and cultural evolution. They just stare at the wall and wait around to be conquered and socially dominated by different flavors of Indo-aryan assholes.

    Dunno about that. Looks to me like O rates over 50% indicates stronger influence of leftover “pongid” type body structure, of which the NordThal is a subset. There’s a commonality of large faces, shyness and primitiveness. They aren’t necessarily altruistic in features or behavior, but they seem to have missed some of the later dominant Saps/Cro-Magnon/EMH waves.

    Working on the forum.

    Not going to say no to the Babel/rocket ships hypothesis, but it has to overcome this: “let us make brick, and bake them thoroughly”. I think we can agree, Babel was about uniting humanity with large public works projects. The language confusion effect was because someone powerful really doesn’t want a One World Order… and that same someone keeps confusing the tongues of man even today.

      Possibly this was post-facto, but also possibly this was just more crazeoli.

      >I think we can agree, Babel was about uniting humanity with large public works projects.

      Yup, 99%. The causality could run either way, or even a bit of both.

      >The language confusion effect was because someone powerful really doesn’t want a One World Order… and that same someone keeps confusing the tongues of man even today.

      The funny thing is, this could be accomplished with a strong magnet (until people disperse) or by introducing, say, the DDR4-7r gene into the breeding population.

    About India… look at all those huge temples carved from stone. Mayan pyramids were more ornate than Egyptian pyramids. If you look past the ornamentation, Indian temples could be seen as really steep pyramids like the Nubian type at Meroe.

    Koanic, I’ve been meaning to make new forum/blog software for a while to get away from PHP and all its backdoors. Care to be the beta tester?

    On an unrelated note: Altrugenics wiki when?

      I can’t handle the pressure AAAAAAAAAAAAA

      *safe space*

      Um, I don’t know. I thought I knew, but life keeps happening and the muses are not cooperating, to put it mildly.

      • When says:

        I am suddenly imagining massive piles of unorganised paper and some unlucky soul has to organise it all. I can understand the apprehension to such a task.

          Check back in seventeen years. People have died waiting for HL3, people have died waiting for Grimoire, and everyone will die waiting for the garden of eden.

          Itz like poetry.

          • Mycroft Jones says:

            Lazer… argh! It is built with Ruby on Rails. Wiki is one of the features I wanted to put into my forum/blog software; let’s talk about what features are valuable to you. For instance, I always felt a wiki page should have a “comments” section. What makes a wiki page different from a forum post, from a blog post? Really, nothing. Just how you view it. And administer, access, and control it.

    • Koanic says:

      I am learning git now, to set up my repo on GamerGate’s GitLab server. That is where I will version my work. I think a wiki is downstream from plaintext development. Wikis are weaksauce compared to git collaboration.

      • Mycroft Jones says:

        The key benefit of wiki, is that it has a very nice interface to easily see WHO changed WHAT and WHEN. Accountability. And easy to revert changes. Git is very powerful, but it is like shaving your moustache with a two handed claymore. There are several git based wikis, but I haven’t evaluated them yet.

        I’m not sure what the benefit of markdown is (the other key component of a wiki). It is ascii text, which is nice for editing.

    (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hh_blood_group)

  7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_type_distribution_by_country

    Among the Australian Aborigines, some groups have a high percentage of blood type A (South-Central and Western ones) whereas some others have a high percetange of blood type O (i.e. Northern ones). I wonder if the Northern ones submitted to British colonialisation more easily than the Southern and Western ones. Maybe someone who knows Australian history can give me some information?

    I have a feeling though that this post is overall problematic. Why did the Plain Indians resist European colonisation so long when they are almost O+? And if non-O blood types indicate a less likely tendency to be slaves, then why are the Blackfeet not known for resistance to European colonisation more than other tribal groups?

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Well, there’s the strong hypothesis (causal link) and the weak hypothesis (correlation). If the former, then maybe the Navajo who didn’t submit easily also didn’t survive and breed. If the latter, it could just be an artifact of being closer to the equator.
