RAD confirms civgene amnesia prototyping


RAD or Reactive Attachment Disorder fits the civgene Amnesia Prototyping model perfectly.

“defined as a condition where an individual has difficulty forming lasting relationships and lacks the ability to be genuinely affectionate toward others.  In addition, persons with RAD do not learn to trust others and do not appear to develop a conscience.”

What creates the conditions for RAD?

“This is believed to be caused by abuse or separation (physical or emotional) from one’s primary caregiver during the first three years of life”

The metamind model explains what is happening.  The non-psychopath’s brain is in a different mode at this age.  Instead of forming memories the metamind is forming types of memories or prototypes.  If a child is forced into risk assessment for survival (severe abuse) or has no emotional input whatsoever (Daniel Solomon ignored in an orphanage), prototypes are never created, and the metamind (the conscience/subconscious) can’t compare unlike things.  The metamind is a risk engine fed by emotional metadata.  With no data to output, no risk is modeled, and no conscience is displayed.

Of course the solution has already been found.  Attachment therapy.  What’s new is Civgene’s contribution to why it works.  A sufficient number of prototypes need to be formed so emotional structures can be attached to all memories, realizing the full biological EQ (and ultimately IQ) and forming a complete metamind.  The therapy works because such an extreme trust is formed (in the absence of risk) that during the therapy.  Hopefully in stretches of time that are long as possible. The key is no real consequences for the subjects actions, hence the conscience sends no risk signals.  In that environment the metamind may change modes to prototyping.  In that case it can write new emotional memories as prototypes doing the work that couldn’t occur at a young age.  Writing the prototypes that would have naturally formed in between 2 and 8 years old.

The bad news here is, there has been much false hope for curing actual psychopaths.  RAD victims may act like young psychopaths, but are not, nor ever will be psychopaths.  They are reverting to the pre-civilization gene jealousy conscience (acting like a psychopath.)  They have a metamind, but it never fully formed do to a lack of nurturing programming from guardians.

RAD untreated is a preventable, predictable, possibly lifelong, perpetuation of the first state of the metamind for humans born with one.  The states are undeveloped(including RAD), suppressed(transitory), metapsychopathy, and protopsychopathy.


More on amnesia prototyping and children crying #$*#@!


Read the posts here about childhood amnesia and the boy who cried #$*#@! for more background.  It seems that our aversion to bad manners may be that our brains light up like Christmas trees when we hear a ‘bad’ word, usually a body archetype or such.  This causes new insights to derail and possibly putting a call out for immediate attention and assistance.  This is why almost all adults use these words, but very sparingly.  To indicate surprise or injury.  An immediate call for attention.

The more active a child’s metamind is the fewer prototypes it creates.  Development of the metamind (aka:the conscience) is inversely proportional to the development of new prototypes.  As the metamind begins it’s metadata classification role rational memories begin to appear, and childhood amnesia draws to an end.

Children go through a ‘potty mouth’ stage.  Of course this drives adults bananas interrupting fragile rational thoughts, seemingly intentionally.  But for the children this is not merely an exercise in annoying futility.  They are intentionally lowering or even ending their prototype creation.  They are subconsciously, attempting to inspire adults to expand their metamind though emotional reinforcement.  They are asking for emotional metadata to activate and use another prototype.

It appears that the hard stop for prototyping may be cultural, based on varying ends of childhood amnesia by locale.  The sudden cessation of ‘potty mouth’ of children between eight and nine years old in the United States seems to indicate the end of inactivated prototypes.   Of course this process begins at age 5 or 6 pointing at 2-4 years spent in the intermediate stage where the conscience is active and raw brain pathways are still being created.

All children in a locale seem to stop the constant colourful metaphors around the same age.  Psychopaths seem to begin the end of prototyping with their first experiences of extreme despair.  Is it possible that children are able to sabotage each other’s further prototyping via naughty archetypes?  Can’t really predict what’s happens here, but could make for some interesting simple experiments.

One final avenue to explore.  What if the metamind sends out some sort of final signal to end all prototyping?  Pure speculation, but it could have big implications.  Lets suppose it’s true and the signal is never sent.  Wouldn’t the brain continue to try and end prototyping by sending out disruptive words, in an attempt to complete an active metamind, to no avail?  This does have some similarities to Coprolalia with Tourette syndrome?

Detailed explanation of childhood amnesia


Another lesson from the psychopath as the pre-civilization human.  Human beings are born as psychopaths.  Just as the fetus mimics evolution in the womb, we are not conscionable beings when we are born.  Empaths have the hardware to develop a conscience.  In fact nothing can stop that, though it’s usefulness will be reduced without any parental programming of long term risk.  All of this has been observed though established science, though the explanations differ.

Many two and three year olds go through an awful stage of selfish behavior.  This is when the metamind is beginning to develop.  This is directly connected to childhood amnesia.  The mind is prototyping behavior.  Prototyping is when you are creating the classifications of data built into a recognizable model of the world.  The prototyped data becomes the prototype, so it can’t be accessed directly.  Hence the amnesia.  That the metamind is minimal or dormant during this stage is an evolutionary advantage, because fewer prototypes would form.  The metamind is usually normalizing or averaging behavior.  The earlier it kicks in the smaller the breadth of different kinds prototypes the child could develop from the start and the smaller their understanding of the types of data in the world around them is.

This can be demonstrated by the lack of effectiveness of scolding young children.  The metamind is simply not responding yet.  The more active it is, the fewer prototypes are being created.  It is well understood that the most healthy method of changing the behavior of young children is to change their environment to make the negative behavior impossible, better known as childproofing.  What you are actually doing is avoiding the early activation of the metamind, and allowing more prototypes to form.

It is possible that you can damage a child’s future intelligence, by activating their metamind too early.  This is a done when a very young child is being constantly scolded creating very strong emotional barriers to new thoughts.  The time of building potential prototypes passes and the child future dims.  Cultures that scold children at young age may be able to get their children to accomplish adult behavior, but it is by sacrificing breadth of thought later on.  These cultures can easily be identified by childhood amnesia that ends very early in age.  While it may seem a sign of intelligence, it represents the opposite.

Further evidence is indicated in psychopaths ability to remember very young childhood.  Hardly suffering from childhood amnesia at all.  Without the metamind to moderate their first traumatic experience, it would lead extreme despair, and limit or shut down prototyping from there on in all experiences would be literal and memorable.  Additionally this may be a second explanation why their imaginations(source of empathy and powered by the metamind)  are far more limited.  They are traumatized very early on and prototyping ceases.

Interestingly a wide breath of rules and a heavy structure at a young age may actually benefit young psychopaths.  It furthers the idea that the parent is the master and the child the slave, setting the child at ease and simplifying all adult interactions.  These may represent the most socially successful psychopaths as adults.  There are fewer emotional reactions of despair and bliss, because they never experienced them as children, and prototyping ceases later providing them with a broader understanding of how things could work.  As a result psychopath parents may impose what seems to be an absurd amount of structure on their empathic children, damaging their minds and stunting their growth.  They recall how the benefit of order in their own childhood did or could have helped them and are actually trying to help their children (which they are biologically compelled to care for) but simply don’t understand they are not the same.  This last case alone is a huge ethical indication for genetic screening
