Introduction to Edenism

You may have heard that a bunch of weirdos on the internet think they’re neanderthals. This is partially true and partially false. Consider this photo.

Is this baby Caucasian or black? Clearly it is an edge case that requires a clear definition of race, because the recessive genes for red hair disrupt the melanin production that produces the pigmented skin associated with people of African ancestry. Using the forensic anthropology definition of ancestry, we would classify this baby as black due to skeletal features which are predominant in African populations. It would not be a contradiction in terms to describe this child as a white-skinned negroid, but to do so assumes a familiarity with statistical distributions beyond what may be expected of most audiences.

The grand, unifying thesis of Edenism is a straightforward conclusion drawn from established scientific premises. Despite this, it is highly controversial because it is entangled in highly politicized topics like psychology, race, sociology, myth, and morality for which homo sapiens man has evolved a complex of simple emotional heuristics that together constitute what is called “common sense”. Without further ado, here is the big idea:

Ancestry may be described statistically by skeletal features, which correlate strongly with the genetics of breeding populations. Different human populations have different statistical distributions for personality, intelligence, and so on which can be broadly characterized by ancestry. There exist humans today with inherited skeletal traits and genetics which are both characteristic of extinct subspecies, and these people also exhibit a stereotyped distribution of psychological traits. Perhaps most notable is a distinct lack of the aforementioned “common sense” and concomitant affinity for analytical system building, an observation that has supported ten seasons of the comedy show The Big Bang Theory as of this writing.

I describe myself as a neanderthal as shorthand for the more complicated statistical realities of breeding populations, ancestry, and inheritance of skeletal features. It is more true to describe myself as a neanderthal rather than as a homo sapiens, but not categorically true. There is a running gag in this community which parodies the idea of applying binary thinking to paleolithic racial identity—if one of us tells you they are a “TROO THAL” they are being facetious. Here is a visualization of the more complex reality.

The first skull belonged to a neanderthal and displays many archaic  traits: a heavy brow ridge, a prominent occipital bun, and a short cranial vault. The second skull belonged to a Cro Magnon, the genetic hybrid of homo sapiens and neanderthals and the successors of neanderthals in Europe. Although it has some modern features like a heightened cranium and reduced brow ridge, and some features inherited from homo sapiens, there are clearly features inherited from neanderthals such as the retention of a prominent occipital bun.

Here’s a redacted picture of me which shows a continuation of these trends.

picture-of-me

We can see the trends from neanderthal to Cro Magnon continue: the brow ridge is reduced, the cranium is taller, and the prominent occipital bun remains. It would be most precise to describe myself as a Cro Magnon descendent with significant psychological markers inherited from neanderthals, which I’ll discuss later when I summarize the personality research of an amateur Finnish scientist who goes by Rdos.

The fact of the matter is that neanderthals per se are extinct*. But many of us carry genes from neanderthals, some of which have very strong phenotypal expression (like those for red hair). DRD4-7r is the poster child for this phenomenon in genetic psychology—this one little variation on a single gene has significant effects on personality, cognition, and life outcomes.

 

*Possible exceptions are not worth including in these broad, sweeping terms. Almas in Russia, for instance, may be proper neanderthal remnants.

    This is intended to be the first section of the eventual Edenism book. Criticisms and suggested edits are therefore appreciated.

  2. I know you want to avoid showing us your powerful, chiseled chin.

    But on a serious note, the writing was superb. Concise, calm, clear. You English teacher would write: A+, GREAT WRITING, odd content (see me after class cause the principal wants you to go for psych evaluation).

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Sounds about right, thanks for the feedback.

      >I know you want to avoid showing us your powerful, chiseled chin.

      I won’t lie, my chin and jawline are very nice by any standard.

  3. Lizard King says:

    Oooh, nice.

    I have nothing to add other than that you should include a section with the formula for ThalForce. It’s only fair to let the masses know how to unleash their inner Thal.

    1 pint Drano, 1 pint Bleach, 2 teaspoons KOSHER salt, 6 grams ayahuasca powder, 4 grams psilocybin. Mix thoroughly by hand.

    Must drink while standing inside some sort of walk-in freezer in order to simulate an Ice Age. This is the best way to awaken your inner THAL.

    Next time I’ll relate the formula for LMAO Weed. It’s way better than that silly reefer that everyone keeps talking about. LMAO Weed is what TROOTHALZ smoke.

    Nice of Nottuh to lend his mug to this blogpoast! Some genes just overtake others and instantly bond with the same, like certain colors overtake all others. Take that, black!

    “This is intended to be the first section of the eventual Edenism book. ” oh boy… that one already exists through three blogs and three forums, the main chunks. “Mastodont Projekt” we call it, a fitting name. Having been onboard for years now and before that waiting at the station looking at this Train, it makes sense to me. I think it all clicks for any autisté nobilid sperg just any material and the then consequential “staying up for three days reading” follow up (c) Lazer.
    I think it should be very basic.

    Here is the draft for version one of the pdf “You are a Neanderthal”, thats the name of the first chapter, the name of the first headling, and the words to the first and last sentence. Book title being “How I stopped worrying and started to love the ITZ”, obviously. The royalties (around 1-2%?) can be cashed in monthly at your local Bankid HQ. Many such cases!

    Peace out.

      I’m going to start paying Boneflour to send me interpretations, he says he can usually understand you.

      I want something *nice* though.

      I was thinking we could sell it as a self-help guide to epigenetic expression for weight-loss and tie in a line of supplements starting with Thalforce.

    Solid post. Great writing. 10 outta 10, would tattoo on dead tree.

  7. FWIW, I think Phrenology is the only sub-component of Edenist lore that can actually 1) deliver as a predictive model and 2) has big potential in the marketplace of ideas. Ie you could conceivably infect RoK, 4Chan, Youtubers, etc, with that meme, and get real-world trickle-down impact from it.

    Neanderthal DNA is predictive but lacks oomph as a meme.

    The others bits (melons, Sasquatches, etc) are *both* kooky and unappealing except to extremely particular meme hipsters (and those are all here anyway).

    I’ll stop commenting now, lest this be taken as endorsement of your activities :)

    • bicebicebice says:

      That’s funny because the “melon” skulls are a combination of european and mena dna, now we know why the ZOGid wanted to “recreate a human reminiscent of the ancient egyptians in skin tone” to slave away all day. Or something else?

      Ergo the melon is much more “alive” recently speaking than the thal. Think about it.

    • Akuma says:

      Melons are not Kooky. I own a Monograph from the Queen Elizabeth Institute in Brussels copywrited 1966. It clearly shows them with their head dresses off, and it’s in no way cranial deformation. Any Anthropologist who would say melons are kooky after seeing this monograph should be stripped of their authority.

      I think we may have already missed that boat. The Israelis and Chinese are already releasing engineering applications.

      >Neanderthal DNA is predictive but lacks oomph as a meme.

      What people care about though is identifying with ancestors.

      >The others bits (melons, Sasquatches, etc) are *both* kooky and unappealing except to extremely particular meme hipsters (and those are all here anyway).

      I was never into kooky conspiritard theories until I needed them to explain problems I was running into.

      >I’ll stop commenting now, lest this be taken as endorsement of your activities :)

      Yeah, how dare you!

    The comedy show which shall not be named is an example of spergface / nerdface. If you think that it’s funny, you need to check your privilege or something.

    Also, does anyone know whether or not having two *different* DRD4 alleles (instead of two copies of DRD4-7R) makes a difference phenotypically? Wouldn’t having two different DRD4 alleles cause neurons to express two variants of the D4 receptor?

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Never said I enjoyed it, but the point is to demonstrate there’s a there there, and everybody knows it even if they won’t admit it in person.

      “””
      One might wonder why some with Asperger want so much to “fit in”. It is so that a person with Asperger is seen by most normal people as “different”, even though many of those normal people will violently deny this when confronted (“There’s nothing wrong with you!”).

    AP, are you well up on Forensic Anthropology?

    Let me ask you a question, to see where you are. Let’s say I find a body, outdoors, that is mummified. About how long has it been since the victim died?

    You look just like the “wide eyed cro magnon” on the Tex Arcane / Koanic facial composition guide.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      >AP, are you well up on Forensic Anthropology?

      Nope. I’m just choosing the battleground for future arguments. Normally I’d appeal to the basic premises of paleoanthropology but nowadays you can’t trust those folks to support the fundamental premise “bones indicate ancestry” which underlies their entire field. So any old midwit can grab an anthro book and say “See? It says here race is a social construct!”

      >You look just like the “wide eyed cro magnon” on the Tex Arcane / Koanic facial composition guide.

      That doesn’t immediately ring a bell, plz link.

    Neanderthals can’t have red hairs or autistic type personality or white skin, sorry bud.
    Listen to some genetics.
    You need a big long gorilla type face(minus canines ;plus zygomatic retreat) or you can’t be a thal if you’re over 5’7 and you have a caucasian midget face like you.
