Humanity’s first, and still strongest, survival mechanism is what some now call the battle trance. As a predator approached the human troupe, rather than the biggest strongest alpha coming forward and going on a berserk rampage, the distress spread. Cries of distress from one human in the troupe fired off distress in the others, and they all had their senses heightened and locked in on the frightening element that had emerged in their environment. The battle trance is reflexively triggered only in the distress scenario.
Every time you get stressed out you are in a mild and involuntary battle trance. So your brain takes in all the human signals; want but can’t have, couldn’t find and frustrated, did find and hold others in contempt. So we see people are evil. You have to own your desires, or they will perpetually be used in a shell game. You will remain vulnerable to bait and switch and your behaviour will be controlled.

If I get everything I want, then I will have to work to maintain it. No you won’t. We often haven’t much reflected on what we actually want. Should I go into that? You actually want what you have without… Seek More
Perhaps a different point of view to show even more clearly the truth of this, and how deeply the rabbit hole goes. Let’s look at art. It’s possible that all art, even modern art, stems from or at least still… Seek More
Want to control your battle trance? I’m not sure. It is such a boon to survival, you know. Want to be controlled by it? Nope. If you don’t want to control it, you do indeed want to be controlled by… Seek More
