Social side effects of the conscience

  • Normalcy bias
  • Vulnerability to propaganda
  • Susceptibility to marketing
  • Vulnerability to gaslighting
  • Natural law
  • The onset of money (a trust proxy)
  • Rapid long term risk calculation

The above are all side effects of the conscience, the constantly readjusting mean of our emotional experiences.  Societal mechanisms unlocked by the civilization gene.  This is what happens when a rational, logical intelligent being is forced to have mandatory emotional recall when accessing their memories.  As unaware individuals having a conscience makes them weaker in some ways but stronger in others.  As a group they form civilization.  It gets really interesting when enough individuals become aware of their own conscience and how it works.
Now they can return to the ruthless logic of the psychopath when needed, but they can also participate in common good that forms civilization itself.  All of their strengths and none of their weaknesses.

The list of side effects becomes.

  • Natural law
  • The onset of money (a trust proxy)
  • Rapid long term risk calculation

Have you neutralized your emotional triggers?  Recognized the source or your emotions? Shielded yourself from Propaganda?  Rejected the knee jerk dismissal of normalcy bias?  Trained your self to recognize more distant marketing?  Learned how to spot and committed to avoiding psychopaths to prevent personal gaslighting?  No?  You need to do these things to join a type one civilization.  No top down membership card required.  Just the will to better yourself, and some basic knowledge on how to trace your own emotions too their root memories.  It can be for selfish reasons.  The result of true self knowledge is the same.  A stronger world.  A much stronger you.
