First attempt to describe Koanic’s Mohawk theory

See the picture gallery for definitions of the cranial regions.

This is the theory as I understand it. Most of the entries are guesses. Figure he’ll tell me where it’s wrong :-P.

Forehead:
Empathy group horizon ~ 10^5
Political allegiance: Dialect group, nation
Psychophilosophy: Statism (“That which is good for people who talk like me is good for me.”)
Value: Virtue signalling, social prestige, mores

Pre-Forehead:
Empathy group horizon ~ 10,000
Political allegiance: City
Psychophilosophy: Racism (“That which is good for people who look like me is good for me.”)
Value: Civic order, honest bargaining

Front-Cone:
Empathy group horizon ~ 1,000
Political allegiance: Tribe
Psychophilosophy: Tribalism (“That which is good for my people is good for me.”)
Value: Martial virtue, social dominance

Back-Cone:
Empathy group horizon ~ 100
Political allegiance: Clan
Psychophilosophy: Monarchism, patriarchalism (“That which is good for my extended family is good for me.”)
Value: Social hierarchy

Backswept:
Empathy group horizon ~ 10
Political allegiance: Family
Psychophilosophy: Nepotism (“That which is good for my family is good for me.”)
Value: Respect

Fauxcippital:
Empathy group horizon ~ 1
Political allegiance: Self
Psychophilosophy: Egoism (“That which is good for me, is good.”)
Value: Individual virtue

Occipital:
Empathy group horizon ~ 0
Political allegiance: Aesthetics (Purely perceiving, emotional, reactive)
Psychophilosophy: Autism (“That which seems good, is good.”)
Value: Goodfeelz, stimulation

Taking this a bit further, I suggest that Glenn’s idea of value stratification is related to an proportional overabundance of brain matter in the more abstract regions. They would have “leapfrogging loyalties” and neglect the smaller group in favor of the larger group.

“Modern liberals’ defining trait is making a public spectacle of how their loyalties leapfrog over some unworthy folks relatively close to them in favor of other people they barely know.”

Steve Sailer
The Self-Righteous Hive Mind

Given the choice between political policies that will help/harm their tribe and their clan, they will either choose to help the greater tribe at the expense of their own clan or be paralyzed by abstract perfectionism (a common behavior that arises from this trait is “letting the perfect be the enemy of the good”) and therefore ineffective in using their political influence.

    You’re translating it into a lower abstraction level.

    It’s a rough draft. Your grand theories take time.

  2. Marshall Mead says:

    Self then family then race then nation then the ultimate perfect circle 888 shit.

    Not that the self or family is more important per se but there is an order to doing things that effective people usually follow.
