The Fix Begins
The website opening page presented the site theme – we are our choices.
Making choices is an intellectual activity of an individual brain, an effort philosophers call thinking (2) responding to a “call” (1) also originating in the subconscious mind. Our target is confined to the significant sociotechnical system problems we call Category three.
“Thinking” underwrites choice making by comparing the knowledge about candidate fixes to a prioritized value system also held within the individual’s brain (3). Choices made that turn out to be good attest that high-stakes thinking took place. 1 2 3
The theme is so central to our life’s trajectory it is expressly connected to this page:
- Scope of page subject matter
- The logical couplings between theme, the sociotechnical system, and this page
Scope: This page discusses the basics that are brought out by the interventionist working toward milestone one in the “Front Line Leader Program” FLLP for MitMs, called “angst blowdown.” It is a series of silence breakers for the keystones that tell the truth about their unique social power as keystones.
Connections: The truth of keystone social power is immediately recognized by the MitMs because they live the role. The interventionist connects their role in the human ecosystem to the laws of nature that explain why it can’t be otherwise. While non-keystones can profit from the knowledge, they lack the interventionist who takes responsibility for their success. This website is loaded with details of the FLLP. This page is some background material about how the hierarchy produces angst in its workforce.
Choosing your way of life is an inalienable right. You have the right to live and the liberty to make a fool of yourself. In the pursuit of happiness you must be free to choose what’s good for you by weeding out the wrong. The first step in the process of overwriting Plan A with Plan B is angst blowdown. Angst consumes, wastes, and confiscates the internal energy it takes to make it to Plan B.
The psychological health fix for the solo MitM is settled business. It is the first milestone in the FLLP. Since the MitM has no social status to defend, he is open to evidence and reason. He responds well to the matter-of-fact approach to his angst. He welcomes silence-breaking. He understands ecosystem law and the clandestine entryway to his subconscious mind is received as fitting with his experience. Knowledge of the mechanisms of action of Plan A, especially the bait ball, is frequently enough to vent his angst tank, yelling “Ho Lee Schmidt” in the process. Everyone vents at their own time, of course, but hyperlearning settings with their peers has cut the maximum time to less than a month.
Experience has shown that the MitM with the wits to attain psychological health will straightaway attend to his physical health on his own. In fact improved physical health is often used by the MitM to signal his psychological health. The subconscious mind connects the two healths on autopilot.
If you want some control over your world, your way of life, considerable cognitive effort must be invested. It is associated with making and implementing right choices based upon knowledge of cause and effect of the particulars. Plain and simple, in an unjust system you cannot reach and maintain your happy way of life without cognitive and physical health. Plan B is a just social system ideology that works.
False mental models of reality to be displaced with truth. Giveups include:
- Obedience to Authority (OTA), involuntary
- Authority infallibility
- Rules infallibility
- Groupthink infallibility
- Illicit zero sum
- Fear-mongered bait ball participation
- Chain of command, top down, consumers to producers
- Choice-making by intuition
- Social status authority equals social power
- Exchange your IR for herd “security,” bait ball giveup
- Entitled authoritarians are functionally responsible for collective prosperity
Focus on making choices to lead your life that aligns with your core values in the most purposeful way possible. Roy T. Bennett
- Understand how unhealthy, psychological and physical, got into your life
- Learn how to block causes of unhealth. Replace false assumptions with viable concepts. Socialization put them in. You can displace them with true concepts.
- Learn the limitations of the subconscious mind as autopilot on way of life
- Learn how to influence subconscious mind choice-making
- Promote veto power over Brainiac as conscious mind habit
For the case of transmuting between Plan A and Plan B, resilient psychological health comes slightly before physical health. Reality one is that everyone involved in Plan A enters the process as psychologically-damaged goods. While it is possible and popular to reduce emotional stress by standalone physical and chemical means, the effects are always fleeting. Returning to the toxic social context of Plan A quickly raises angst to pre-exercise levels. You’ve been there.
A step improvement in psychological health is essential to release your internal energy supply that was commandeered by the authorities, without your knowledge or your consent. No available internal energy, no Plan B. That’s why the first milestone is angst blowdown. Psychological health comes with self-confidence from skill with the methods that successfully deal with the operational reality, the vicissitudes of life. The bait ball cannot solve problems.
You always have control of your efforts. Your subconscious puts imperatives on your teleprompter display but your conscious mind has absolute veto power. Brave insolence. Over the years of subconscious triage, we have learned that the subconscious mind adjusts to the fact it can’t get away with centisecond choice-making. The result is fewer really bad choices on the teleprompter. We don’t take this supposition as fact.
Your subconscious has no social intelligence and it never will. It had millennia to show humanity what it had and the record of carnage it created speaks for itself. How could anyone pass the social behavior of the globe off as intelligent? The bonanza of Plan B is simply the difference in applied social intelligence. The distinction between prosperity and self-annihilation is impossible for anyone to miss.
Punishing those you depend on
Psychological health comes before you can acquire physical health. It is hard to get into your physical health regimen when you are crippled with insecurity and anxiety. There are patterns of social behavior that are significant, ubiquitous, hierarchical, and psychotic-grade irrational. Like shooting a hole in your own boat, they are covered up and deliberately avoided by the social and psychological sciences. These crimes of authority go unnamed.
One example in this category of social behavior exhibits in the ruling class of a social system which, like all hierarchies is dependent upon the producing classes for its own sustenance and survival. The authorities abuse the working classes, especially the keystones of the workforce, with legal impunity. While the law covers domestic cases, for corporate abuse of its workforce the law provides immunity to the rulers.
What we know from the many demonstrations of this psychological phenomenon we have conducted with collectives is that the causes of this betrayal of social intelligence action are deep in invariant human nature, our Stone Age model genome. It is an equal opportunity psychosis accepted by the entire social system as business as usual, the crime of obedience. One tool to use that sounds alarms is POSIWID. You work back from what is actually done and contemplate what goals could possibly make this crime of authority rational.
Since invariant human nature is a strong candidate to be the primary cause of the workforce abuse, we took that pattern and investigated what experts with psychosis can recognize in their clinical experience. It didn’t take long to find a hit that has stood the test of time. For domestic cases of abuse, the professions of social behavior have produced tons of research material and applied the developed knowledge in attempts to fix the problem. Thousands of books and articles on this subject, psychological violence and abuse, are available. Clinics are everywhere. It is reality-denial on a colossal scale.
On the real causes and an effective fix, with implementations to visit and evaluate, there is nothing. We didn’t come this far to only get this far. Letting the menace grow is not a cure. To understand the mechanisms of action of workforce abuse is great anxiety-reducing therapy.
It turns out that the behavioral patterns of organizational dysfunction coincide with the those of domestic abuse. Getting to Plan B taught us that this matter is a psychological system matter. When the failing ideological system was transposed to a prosperous ideological system with no losers, the abuse problem disappeared by itself instantly. Indistinguishable from magic.
What the professionals report on domestic abuse
- Abusers want power over their victims because they feel powerless themselves.
- An abuser won’t risk becoming abusive until they are confident their partner won’t leave. This is often after marriage or the birth of a child.
- Placating an abuser in an attempt to reduce tension rarely works; the abuses typically continues.
Facts About Abuse
Victims often minimize violence. Violence includes throwing or breaking things, slapping, shoving, etc.. Here are some facts you should know:
- Usually, abuse takes place behind closed doors.
- Abusers deny their actions.
- Abusers blame the victim.
- Violence is preceded by verbal abuse.
- Abuse damages your self-esteem.
- The abuser needs to be right and in control.
- The abuser is possessive and may try to isolate their partner from friends and family.
- The abuser is hypersensitive and may react with rage.
- Two-thirds of domestic violence perpetrators have been on mind-altering drugs.
- One-third of victims have been using drugs.
Abusers feel powerless. They don’t act insecure to cover up the truth. In fact, they’re often bullies. The one thing they all have in common is that their motive is to have power over their victim. This is because they don’t feel that they have personal power, regardless of worldly success. To them, communication is a win-lose game.
They often have the following personality profile:
- Needy with unrealistic expectations of a relationship.
- Often jealous.
- Verbally abusive.
- Needs to be right and in control.
- Possessive; may try to isolate their partner from friends and family.
- Hypersensitive and reacts aggressively.
- Has a history of aggression.
- Blames their behavior on others.
- Suffers from untreated mental health problems including depression or suicidal
Most victims of domestic abuse respond in a rational way: They explain themselves and believe that the abuser is interested in what they have to say. This lets abusers know that they’ve won and have control. Most victims placate and appease an abuser to deescalate tension and the risk of harm. It rarely works, and abuse typically continues.
Recognize the Cycle of Violence:
- A build-up of tension.
- The attack.
- Remorse and apology.
- A honeymoon period of loving gestures, usually short.
Sometimes, the threat of violence is all the abuser needs to control you, like a terrorist. After an attack, abusers say how sorry they are and promise never to repeat it. Do not believe their promise.
Fueling the A to B journey
The intuitive aversion to Plan B has many roots, each with an element of truth. One such aversion is cognitive overload. The brain consumes glucose as its energy supply for Plan B system think that is mountainous compared to Plan A. Glucose consumption rates are a direct measure of applied intelligence.
The brain needs glucose in order to perform its basic functions, as well as the higher-order executive functions, such as making decisions, focusing, or doing mental calculations. Since glucose can’t get there directly, glucose from blood enters the brain by a transport protein. Glucose is the primary energy substrate of the brain. Glucose transport protein (GLUT-1) is highly enriched in brain capillary endothelial cells. These transporters carry glucose molecules through the blood brain barrier.
Since the brain lacks fuel stores, it requires a continuous supply of glucose. It consumes about 120 g daily, which corresponds to an energy input of about 420 kcal (1760 kJ), accounting for some 60% of the utilization of glucose by the whole body in the resting state. The brain uses up more glucose during challenging mental tasks. At its most severe, insufficient glucose flow to the brain can cause confusion, seizures, and loss of consciousness. It’s an excuse we often use to explain our aberrant behavior – to no avail.
Studies show that dips in glucose availability in the brain can have a negative impact on attention, memory and learning, and that administering glucose can enhance these aspects of cognitive function. The more intelligent a person is, the more energy his brain consumes. The energy stores in the brain are extremely small when compared with its high rate of glucose consumption. That is why, exactly, FLLP episodes are limited to two hours and episodes are spaced a month apart to allow time for the keystone to test the Plan B concepts he picked up at the previous episode on his crew.
