Subconcious speed reading


Darwninan evolution leaves little room for debate. Genetic accidents come to dominate because of advantage.  Including people. Even the very empathy that makes you recoil from the potential horrors of the implications above.

Civgene indicates that the subconscious mind (specifically the conscience) is a risk manager.  Why?  With comparative intelligence, new risks are assessed more quickly by humans with a conscience than humans without (psychopaths).

The risk formula is programmed both by other people like our guardians, and by our own experience.  As our memories are recalled, a secondary map of emotions produces a new, involuntary, composite emotional state.  Sometimes the subsequent compound emotion is fear of a yet seen danger the rational mind could not deduct as quickly, hence the advantage.  Mandatory emotional recall is fast, as demonstrated by the laggard rationalization that follows it.  This is true only if the data is natural (self acquired or at least sincerely emparted) and good mental hygiene is practised.

Just like a caring parent can program a human child with well intentioned warnings, so can a group be controlled.  The ability for one human to program a society with a common identity is known as propaganda.  Grandfathered by Edward Bernays.  Fathered by Joseph Gobbels, mass programming of identities is a potential genocidal machine.  Turning peoples own conscience against them.  Rational minds enslaved to fabricated emotional risk warnings.

The civilized mind
Propaganda is a fabricated, subconscious, communication directed at societies, but it’s carriers originate naturally.  This is visible as secondary communication cues.  Intonation, secondary noises, linguistic lexicon shifts, lighting, temperature, smells, sounds, etc.  Any subtle cue that can be rationally remembered can have a compound emotion attached to it.  People are continuously programming each other.  Human civilization is a vast, distributed, subconscious risk, supercomputer.  Mainly throttled by the bandwidth of human interaction and attacks on it’s networks.

Karl Marx noticed this but did not understand what he is seeing.  In general I have found his observations to be outstanding, while his conclusions wither as a function of time.  Why did he get causality wrong?  No failing of his own.  He like his contemporaries simply did not understand that humanity was two distinct, separate behavioural sets.  They were simply unaware of psychopaths.

History repeated
His observations about late civilization stratification were correct.  The modern bourgeoisie have re-emerged in America and the western world.  In it’s natural form, the bourgeoisie as a class, emerges because of commonality in culture, specifically in subconscious ques.  As the psychopath population grows, the society increasingly devalues cooperation and rewards strict competition.  The bourgeoisie read the same books, attend the same operas, and go to the same parties.  The feedback loop tightens as quantifiable knowledge consumption accelerates.  The programming becomes less and less noticed, less frequently rationalized and ultimately goes completely unexamined.  Simply put the rational mind can’t keep up with the subconscious programming, and so it goes unchallenged.  The people who operate society, the bourgeoisie, eventually become completely psychopathic.

Now, in 2017 propaganda is more science than art.  Massive databases of up to the minute word associations betray our subconscious communication and the current state of shared risk.  Further the Internet has greatly increased the bandwidth for subconscious communication.  Sharing (comparatively) professionally produced videos as fast they can be consumed.  Entire libraries distributed in minutes.  Immersive video games increase the bandwidth even beyond what a carefully scripted stream of videos can aspire to.  Together they form a wall of customized emotionally calculated programming a physically present team couldn’t match.

Today the technical and financial elite are consuming same material. Racing to the treetop to be top ape in true psychopathic fashion.  Their subconscious always silently consuming faster than rational memory components.  Their rational minds can’t keep up.  Their subconscious is polluted with ease as big data guides big media.  The economic collapse, the human disaster, it’s happening again.  But this time it’s measured in days instead of decades.

But there is hope. The art, the music, the stories, the pop cultures of the past can save some of us.  If you are sceptical enough to seek and use them, and ultimately profit.

The more bandwidth your media has, the more quickly your subconscious can be damaged.  Reading is the lowest bandwidth way to express complex information, so is the least dangerous.  It is difficult for subconcious programming to outrun the critical, rational mind with a newpaper article alone.  Listening is worse.  A podcast or radio program are more likely to reprogram you.  Video has many dimensions by which to perform the card tricks of propaganda.   Your rational mind following one path and your subconscious another.   And of course games both with their interactive 3d and reactive feedback could be weaponized at a level not yet imagined.

Slow the information down and test yourself.  Our metaminds are a database.  Care for it.

  1. Need to read something questionable?  Play loud familiar music while reading a suspect source to interrupt emotional data creation.  DOS your own emotional recall system.
  2. Do you think your emotions may have been contaminated?  Take time to meditate and focus on clearing them.  LIFO pop the stack.
  3. Noticed your feelings changed after consuming strange media?  Inventory the issues that are important to you and see if your feelings have inexplicably changed on them.  If you can’t understand the change erase it with self repetition.  Make sure to sleep on it before accepting the change.  Checksum data.  Erase corruption.  Perform a database integrity check.
  4. Exposed to something you don’t trust?  Follow questionable sources with next class up of familiar and trusted media.  Listened to a untrustworthy news story?   Then watch a favourite movie. Nightly news known to be disreputable? Don’t watch it.  But if you must, play a trusted favourite 3d video game to test and reset your own mind.  Ride a mental bicycle over your mind’s roads to see if they have been damaged or changed.  Perform a system wide antivirus scan on your metamind, as soon as you can.
  5. Want to consume something from a serial offender?  Wait.  Simply wait a few months to a few years and then consume it.  Wait until it is out of fashion.  Subconscious reprogramming is highly context sensitive.   Sure you’ll miss the water cooler talk but the older messages will be much more like noise to your subconscious.  Like running a new operating system, released after a virus (subconscious programming) is public knowledge and it’s exploits repaired or blocked.

Beat the propaganda.  The key is to slow down the face melting pace of rational learning and examine your feelings.  Remember more bandwidth means more damage.  No matter how smart you are, your conscience(if you have one) still absorbs propaganda faster than your rational mind can counter it.  Take some time to let what you consume sink in.  No matter the topic.

Reading has some risk. Listening is worse.  Watching still worse.  Games have the highest subconscious programmatic rate.  Take the time after consuming public media to practice good mental hygiene.

Reject the bourgeoisie and protect civilization.  Put your own mental hygiene ahead of accelerating competition.  The lasting standards are open source anyway, inherently an exercise in cooperation.  The currency of reputation is almost always worth more than short term victories.  Forget top branch, it’s a big forest.  It’s your mind.  Don’t loose control.

Civgene can provide objective morality



Video explaining how you can derive objective morality from civgene.

You can use behaviours unique to empaths to derive objective morality from science itself.  Non-psychopathic behaviours are like atoms which in turn can be used to build rights, much like molecules.

More to come.

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.


Terminology error – misuse of ‘recessive’


An error has become apparent throughout the civgene site and papers.  I have been incorrectly using the term recessive.  This stems from my high school level biological science background.  The mistake specifically was thinking that there were only two basic building blocks of genetic combinatorics.  A gross miscalculation.

In my defense I had no idea I would ever envision or peruse anything like civgene.  My rudimentary Mendelian generic understanding caused me to infer that any gene that was not dominant must be recessive. I was at the least, dated.  In fact had I been aware of the many types(and still growing) of genetic inheritance I would never have said it.  It is possible psychopathy is a combination of several genes and/or could be autosomal recessive, Autosomal dominant, (probably not X or Y linked) or a number of not commonly named patterns.  I just don’t know, but will pursue this knowledge.

My error was in not saying what I really meant, ‘Not Mendelian dominant.’ or ‘Not dominant’  This assertion is based on solid external science.  Psychopaths are officially considered to not be not curable.  This was the original tell for me that it is likely genetic.  Cases are distributed evenly between males and females.  Further, symptoms seem to begin from a very young age, one or two years old as childhood amnesia ends sooner, making postnatal epigenetics less likely.  Psychopaths can appear in families with no apparent history, but there does seem to be a higher likelihood of psychopaths being born to one or more psychopath parents.

I caught this error after some vague advice about misusing ‘recessive’ prompted me to look into the combinatorics of a civgene. I could not line up some estimates of psychopath growth with the numeracy of recessive genes.  During this process I learned that combinatorics vary wildly along with inheritance patterns.  Many alleles be part of a single gene or that genes with a single function can include large swaths of DNA.  Using combinatorics to prove genetic inheritance types without first knowing the genes involved can be difficult or impossible.  Lesson learned.

If you are a geneticist, you probably already realize this error does not effect the viability of civgene.  My thinking was correct even if my label was incorrect.  I apologise for any part in delaying recognition or visibility of civgene with this error.

The question remains of remediation.  Since the meaning was consistent, I can simply replace the word.  I have found 1 papers and 5 blog posts with the error.  I will correct ‘recessive’ with ‘not dominant’ ASAP and post the corrected links here as I find them.

Please if you find this to be further in error, please contact me with corrections ASAP.  Also if you find recessive in use, please contact me.  Thanks for you assistance.

Economic collapse can create unborn schizophrenia


“Likewise, adults that were prenatally exposed to famine conditions have also been reported to have significantly higher incidence of schizophrenia.”

Looks like support for another civgene theory. That schizophrenia is genetic resistance to manipulation by psychopaths. In this case epigeneticly triggered by starvation of an unborn’s mother.  Starvation, has a strong likelyhood it’s been caused by a collapsing economy.  Civgene predicts economic collapses are because the percentage of psychopaths in the economy has grown too large.

Interesting implications for supernatural faiths with fasting rituals. Are they systemically creating more schizophrenics?  How about dieting?  Is it statistically significant?

What civgene isn’t – subjective morality


Civgene is never an attempt to alter objective morality.  Instead it is meant to observe, contrast, and consider the implications that objective morality is biologically less compelling, and therefore less relevant, for psychopaths.

In the ideal case (where civgene’s theories and predictions are perfectly true), it would travel no further than explaining objective morality’s origin.  IMO such is true for all science.

The terror of rational clarity

headshot“And everytime you think you know just what you’re doin’ That’s when your troubles exceed” — Guns and Roses

‘Success consists of getting up one more time than you fall.’

As the metamind grows and adapts it faces moments of eventual success.  Moments where reason is comprised just of the rational mind.  Not because there is no risk for the conscience to report, but because it has been successfully rationalized or rationally accommodated.  Present risks are understood in total so the metamind is quiet.  For some, they want or need to meditate to reach this state.  For others meditation need not be a ritual, but simple state of mind.

The conscience suddenly intrudes on your clarity.  You may rationalize, ‘What if I do not understand the moral course of action at all?’  It can be terrifying.  With the conscience quiet the rational mind is free to explore all the darkness of self serving convenience.  Exploring an evil(perfectly selfish) point of view.  The conscience comes roaring back with the subconscious recognition, that it’s absence means one thing.  As a direct product of the success of rationalization to the point of self actualization, you were briefly thinking like a psychopath.  A moment of internal emotional whiplash, where you at your best suddenly became you at your worst.

There are several possible explanations for the sudden intrusion of a recently happy conscience in people who make a real effort towards self knowledge.

1.   The untethered rational mind explores some new, dark, but personally gratifying future, which poses compounding threats to the self later down the timeline.  We’ve recognized a new risk to rationalize.  The conscience fires up and reminds us to act like a well adjusted human being.  Pointing out dead ends (double down, defect(depart), or die) in our potential plans.

2.    If you are not yet a self actualized as a meta-psychopath (I imagine it’s quite rare to fully arrive if possible at all), you may be detecting a layer of protopsychopathy.  This is also a common situation.  While many foolishly deny it, outsiders program our emotions all the time.  Sure as you had parents or guardians, your emotions have been either completely explored, or are are still directing you from once external or alien decision making.

3.    I think those are both more easily resolvable, but here is the real risk.  That you are seeing the endgame.  The outcomes have become final.  That no amount of probability calculation can navigate through the problems facing you.  This recognition that the three D’s, the psychopaths basket of choices, are all you have left.  This is exactly what cognitive dissonance is.  Frozen in the fear that your metamind no longer affords you any advantage, so you give up on it.

Number three, cognitive dissonance, is the most neglected and interesting case.  The good news is huge.  Most likely cognitive dissonance or any persistent failure of the conscience is a false negative.  In a way faith(political, religious or other) is a shortcut to recognising this for structurally incomplete reasons.  You have actually mistaken the inability to discern risk now from the inability to discern risk later.  Of course faith alone can be tested, and can fail you (if it can’t fail it’s not faith but indoctrination or other forms of belief), leaving you in a lurch.

Here is how civgene helps.

Knowing that the conscience/metamind is a passively driven risk engine hands you the solution.  Don’t give up.  If your conscience can’t perform the risk calculation, that’s not telling your problems can’t be solved.  It’s telling you you need more data.  That’s it.  Both not giving up, and trying new things has the best chance of showing you the moral, or low risk, way forward.  Curiosity doesn’t just serve laziness or amusement, but is the key to a healthy metamind.

If you find your self in the pits of despair, seek new points of view.  Socialize.  Learn.  Build.  Invent.  Create.  And the answers will come.  Use faith for rationalization, but not as a crutch or belief against your own personal darkness.  If you hide behind ‘faith’ you can become trapped in a vain well of self gratification, devoid of new information, barrelling towards the same three Ds that haunt all that biologically define their success through jealousyThe conscience  functions best interacting with all society, even the parts you don’t like.  Explore and accept the world for what it is and you will understand how to navigate through it.
