Starchildren part 2, behavior

Last post was very abstruse :-P, this time I’ll speak a bit more concretely. The term starchild was coined by Lloyd Pye, and refers to the particular skull. I use it here as a placeholder, signifying the belief that genetic material remains in the greater human gene pool and pops up in occasional extreme cases.

Starchild

Relatively purebred starchildren like Jack Ma or the African one I was acquainted with are extremely rare, perhaps on the order of one in ten million, i.e. one per metropolitan area. They are also probably the smartest of the edenic types, having the highest mean IQs according to anecdote, cranial size, and encephalization quotient. The latter is because they tend to be very short, averaging perhaps five feet tall with very slight, ectomorphic builds. Their IQ seems to be predominantly due to having exceedingly good memories, approaching eidetic quality. This allows them to absorb entire technical subjects on a whim. Jeopardy! superstar Ken Jennings has some significant SC traits and exemplifies this savant-like behavior.

The predominant phrenology traits to look out for are general neoteny, small facial dimensions (a face that looks “scrunched up”), bat-like ears with detached earlobes positioned very low relative to the eyes, and most importantly large heads with extreme cranial width just behind and above the ears in the region of the temporal lobes.

This must to be disambiguated from the neanderthal’s “en bombe” shape, where the the cranium flares outward in the back. If in doubt, and the other SC markers are absent, assume you’re looking at neanderthal-influenced cranial flaring. SC and SC-leaning faces are very distinctively pedomorphic (baby-like), whereas even infantilized Millenial neanderthaloids have specialized (i.e. “species”-distinguishing) facial features that identify them as adults of their species.

Neoteny

(Pedomorphic members of related species look similar but adults look dissimilar.)

Starchildren have even less shallow charisma than neanderthals, which tends to cause them a great deal of trouble as they’re starting out in life. Jack Ma reports that he once applied to work at a KFC along with 23 other people, and was the only person who wasn’t hired. Having been acquainted with a starchild personally, this doesn’t surprise me at all. They are extremely weird and off-putting when you first meet them.

Notably, they also seem to lack any tendency to aggression (this is another reason it takes them a while to make any money). Insults and setbacks seem to slide off them like water off a duck’s back. This lack of malice or aggression is mediated by their complete inability to give a straightforward answer to any question.

However, intelligence is as intelligence does, therefore starchildren adapt and end up doing pretty well in life. They excel in creating and managing several small tribes and teams of high-functioning edenic types, one or another of which will eventually hit the jackpot. They are extremely empathic and very good at navigating systems and small groups. Particularly, they tend to float to the top in highly technical fields like software, political policy, and petroleum engineering where their IQs and empathic tribe-building pay off the most. Melonheads seem to view their exhaustive memories and small-group social prowess with a mixture of respect and distrust.

(Gingrich is Koanic’s Ur-example and his legendary memory and cranium fit the archetype, but I think his phrenology and personality are big-eye melon.)

Koanic has speculated that SCs tend to be parasites within melonhead elite circles, predating on melons with their intense focus on small-group cohesion. It makes sense, given their ability to effectively read minds, which makes the primary melonhead competencies of propaganda, powertalk, and gametalk impossible. This also matches the holistic impression one gets from the composite image above, which suggests a religious figure within the Vatican hierarchy. This might be best described as “internal politics” or “in-group politicking”.

Starchildren are hard to pin down, but their motivation in life seems to be paradoxical. On the one hand, a SC appears to consider it his life goal to maximize human interconnectivity. On the other hand, they are very quick to talk about their national pride and are intensely interested in their national cultures. Jack Ma never misses a chance to talk about China, and the African SC I knew never missed a chance to explain that “I’m not black, I’m African” and he was heavily involved in the local African music scene.

(I really enjoy this picture :-D.)

The most telling bit of body language is in response to attempted powertalk. They will begin to respond, then pause to give a very brief smile of amused mastery like they’re thinking “oh, I suppose that seemed very clever to you”, then proceed with the response. Their movements are otherwise very graceful and deliberate, as you’d expect with anyone in the upper IQ regions, but also a bit…random. They never seem to know exactly which direction they want to move from second to second, as if they’re decided.

Anyway, you probably won’t ever run into one, but they’re a curious breed regardless. I’d guess that SC genes got into the neanderthal lineage somehow and were actively selected during the ice age as a matter of survival, leading to the gigantic brains and the wandering cognitive style we associate with T-back. (The particular shape and expression of these genes would have had to adapt to fit onto the basic pongid structure.)

    *Need investment guide based on Edenistic phrenology*
    *Puts life savings into Ali Baba*

    The female co-founder Peng Lei seems to be at least part SC, too. Can’t beat mind reading when it comes to, well, anything really.

    • podrag says:

      Yeah there’s a lot more to Jack Ma than meets the eye. I wouldn’t bet so much on certain things he says tbh. He understands the value of mythos in internet businesses but Ali Baba has all the hallmarks of a state sponsored copycat specially for the needs of the Chinese economy. Shit like that doesn’t happen in China unless the road is already paved.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      I can’t imagine a better idea than taking investment ideas from a guy who’s never made enough to leave his parents’ spare room.

    Nanu nanu brrr brrr!

    Totally nailed it bruh! Yeah the formative years are really confusing for them if they aren’t pure lineage SCs. It’s so lonely! :'(

    I would say that Newt isn’t so much of a Ur example. Ur examples look like Leprechauns. You know how Oprah has a very pronounced Philtrum? Also Abe Lincoln! They look like that! Also they have socket depth and HUGE eyes. I was at a meeting the other day with a woman whose head was literally heart-shaped it was mad! The proper aristocracy in Scotland/Northern Ireland have these traits: they’re either coneheads if they’re Norman influenced or they’re weird philtrum Leprechaun people.

    Also I’d say being manlet-sized is a feature but they can also be stocky and muscular.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      >Nanu nanu brrr brrr! Totally nailed it bruh!

      Thanks. (It’s weird to be acquainted with people stranger than me.)

      >You know how Oprah has a very pronounced Philtrum?

      Shit, I think I’ve noticed that previously and forgot about it. The Leprechaun description works okay for the build and dissembling and bizarre fairy land affect but not enough other stuff to be useful, IMO.

      >Also I’d say being manlet-sized is a feature but they can also be stocky and muscular.

      I’d be open to the possibility but I’d describe such people as less SC for it. Like you say, manlet-sized is a diagnostic criterion.

  3. aton says:

    Well, this one makes sense!

    I would think small-group competence comes down to empathy, which is why the more empathetic melon-types are also better at navigating smaller groups.

    Just looking at SC pictures helps me imagine how off-putting their personalities might be.

  4. Koanic says:

    Your power level is over 9,000.

    (Engaging obligatory Koanic anti-Ur-SC rant)

    Filthy mind suckers. All curves and no axes. I’ve got two perpendicular lines for you; come choke.

    I have a hard time buying the Ur-SC -> Neanderthal thing. Inverse occ, inverse face. Let’s do keep in mind that these fuckers don’t so much lie as exist in a mode orthogonal to truth.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      >Your power level is over 9,000.

      Most of this is just repeating stuff you’ve said. 30% crazeoli or so.

      I don’t have the strong negative reaction that you do. If anything, I think these guys are fun and harmless on the interpersonal scale. All you have to do is nod along as they preach about how life is all about human connection. Large-scale effects unknown.

      • bicebicebice says:

        E.T and human connection? First I was on team Aeoli, but then Koanic is some smart, then I looked at enjoyable picture #1, had sensible chuckle, flashbacks of Herman Van Rompuy Large-scale effects happened.

        It sure is hard out there for a Nobilid.

      • Heaviside says:

        >All you have to do is nod along as they preach about how life is all about human connection.

        Building a life on human connection is a solved problem. Building a life on human disconnection is the true achievement.

  5. I don’t think Gingrich is big eye melon. Those sockets look too deep for m front. He is more MT like.

    Interesting, I guess I’ve seen a few SC Scots.

    On another note, yep my back is like second last pic of the original post.

    http://www.altrugenics.com/forum1/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=123

    Really isn’t many of us, I see some men with skulls like this, generally bald like me, woman usually have long hair, all my daughters have my dual back, but you wouldn’t know it cause there hair hangs over the bump.

    My boy looks more starchildly.

    • justabum says:

      We’re also very tall, and muscular not short.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      >Interesting, I guess I’ve seen a few SC Scots.

      Probably not. One in ten million or so seems about right.

      Legit dualbacks are probably more like one in ten thousand. Figure one in a hundred whites are properly edenic, maybe half of these are melon-back and half are thal-back. Chances of getting both in one person aren’t great.

    Dunno how broadly applicable this is, but paradigm shifts in science are what seem to jazz up my temps. Casting a new perspective on a problem that yields an innovative solution/framework which everyone adopts- perhaps that’s occipitally-mediated value weaving.

    Maybe that would explain the national pride (Kendrick Lamar, as another example, draws extensive inspiration from his hometown of Compton): everyone brings their personal opinion/ preferred shape to the negotiation table/arbitrary metaphor for hivemind, and this is not seen as disruptive/improper because you are expected to be opinionated- producing a consensus need not be a prim and proper affair. Limited to speculation here due to insufficient starkid density to be able to observe a hive proper in action.

    I also get irritated when there seem to be too few forms of something. Like, come on, God, this the most you can do? Implicit assumption, I guess, being that there are infinite shapes/conformations/properties available, or that there should be. Like, physics, mass charge spin? I mean, come on. It helps that the re are so many emergent properties, but still…

      This is what motivates any truly scientific mind. The rest are pretenders.

      You’d probably enjoy biology and medicine better. Getting the same sense of wonder from physics requires an IQ higher than mine and I think we’re roughly par.

      • Kensuimo says:

        Roughly… well, that made me do a little dance. I must humbly refute: worked recently with a bigocc on a project; I was effectively a monkey cheerleading from the sidelines.

        Dead on with biology. Protein folding lends itself to starkid style shape analysis so readily it’s absurd (referring not necessarily to analytical capability but rather intellectual affinity- it’s like Legos for adults). Linus Pauling (contributor to elucidation of alpha helix shape, a significant contributor to overall protein shape/function) probably had at least avg temp. A biochemistry professor of mine was starkid (touch of parietal) and his enthusiasm for his work was amusing/inspiring.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          >Roughly… well, that made me do a little dance.

          Don’t get too excited, it’s the equivalent of being born with the genetics to be 6’3″, and getting enough to eat as a kid. Tall, but not exceptional.

          >I must humbly refute: worked recently with a bigocc on a project; I was effectively a monkey cheerleading from the sidelines.

          Bigocc has properties other than what the WAIS tests, often yielding genius in the high ranges.

          >A biochemistry professor of mine was starkid (touch of parietal) and his enthusiasm for his work was amusing/inspiring.

          Unlikely, they’re about one in ten million.
