So, predictions. If I am correct that all the social ills and psychological and behavioral problems of our time is primarily caused by overpopulation and life being too easy for generations at a time, then there are only a very small number of possible future outcomes.

The first one that a lot of people will probably jump to is that we simply wait for the boomers to die and then everything will be fine after that. Not going to happen. Things always change, and always towards the left over time.

Population growth has slowed and reversed in many countries.

The fertility level is the most basic of things to look at, yes. Doesn't change that we don't know what "too much" is. All we know is that Dunbar's number is 150.

Even the billions he owns can't fix his shit taste on women. I am not even talking about the underage stuff here. (Which is a crime already)

I guess he is so retarded or egoistic (ot both), no decent woman with any self respect will show him any love.

His only chance for sex is buying underage ugly girls from Africa.

I am not surprised, Roger is also the same.

You can find many photos of Roger with underage Chinese/Japanese girls wearing "Bch pls" shirts.

Other than that, the only option is a violent reduction in numbers. War, pestilence or famine. Given the current understanding of the amygdala, war is most likely to come in the form of a soviet-style collapse. The states will continue to become ever more tyrannical until we have an economic collapse, which will result in lowered food production and a lot of dead people.

So if soviet conditions are the most likely near-future outcome, what to do about it?

Flee. Simple as that. If you stay, odds are you will be locked up or have all your property stolen or simply end up shot. Let the disease burn itself out, and when the rebuilding begins in 10-30 years it might be time to come back if you feel like it by then. But staying through it is simply too dangerous and there is no reward.


On a side note, I have gained a new appreciation for the importance and role of religion during these studies. Maybe a topic for another time.
While I might agree that reduction of populations could be one solution, I'm not convinced it needs to be war, famine and disease that does it. What if the other option included wealth and education redistribution which ultimately resulted in the same. (John Calhoun's rat experiment) A voluntary or subconscious participation in depopulation could leave our hard fought infrastructure intact where war likely would not.
The constant threat of war plays an important role in our eventual decision to choose another option but failing this, war is ready.

(fair points)

Fair point. I just have a personal aversion to the term as its usually associated with "get rich quick" schemes on the forum.
The WO does not reflect the rest of the forum in any way. While some moonbois get lost here from time to time, people are generally more sensible over here. Although some will be missing out by believing that Bitcoin is the only thing with real future value, which would be equivalent to picking a single website and claiming that all others are and always will be shit-sites during the dot com bubble. Bitcoin is the revolution, but blockchain is still carving out a new era regardless.

This is true. However, if you become aware of this you can turn yourself into one as well and thus expand your possibilities. After all, everything that holds us back is the result of adaption to environment encoded in genetics and materializing in habits so to speak. If you understand this you can actively work on breaking those habits and replacing them with new ones that are more fit for our times and your personal situation. Of course that's a major pain in the ass and not necessarily worth it on an individual basis, especially for those who are already well off.

Boulia Shire is twice the size of Belgium with a population of 600.

 So that’s an average of about 1 person per 100 square km.  And that’s one of the more crowded parts of the Outback.

Has the same cultural problems that everyone else does. It's as much about life being too easy for too long, overcrowding just makes it that much worse.

The problem is that it appears to require a large amygdala in order for critical thought to be possible. As in, physically possible. And it only develops under certain environmental conditions which, for the most part do not exist today. How do you physically alter the brains of millions of people?

With psychedelic drugs. They have been shown to promote neurogenesis as well as to create new connection between neurons. The effect is the strongest while the substance is in the body, but after-effects remain. Of course, research on this is way behind thanks to our precious governments protecting us.

Another option is technology, namely the kind of stuff Musk is trying to create with Neuralink. But that's still god knows how long away.


Do you know any papers on the amygdala claim by the way? Sounds interesting and would explain why some people can't be reasoned with even if you're being extra nice.

Also regarding the "life too easy" argument.

I don't think that you necessarily need to encounter extreme "bad" hardship to become capable and a net positive on society as opposed to being a drain. It would probably be enough if there were sufficient incentives in place to periodically push yourself beyond your current limits.

The key element here is overcoming challenges that appear "too big" or even impossible. Going through such of any type is a humbling and rewarding experience and you learn to be much more open-minded.

You can generally tell if a person has accomplished anything (even just being really good at a 'useless' game) based on how they interact with others (over prolonged periods of time, everybody has bad days). Those that never pushed themselves make conclusions. The others question and are willing to learn.
And the more such hardships one conquers the stronger the effect becomes.

But when everything is thrown your way and you don't have to try you just assume that you're perfect, after all everything is going well. Similarly, people who have shitty lives but have a constant voice telling them it's not their fault won't push themselves either and then repeatedly make conclusions as opposed to looking for new ways forward. In arguments this translates to fighting as opposed to looking for unknown variables with the opponent (opponent in the sense of the person opposite of you, not in the sense of an enemy - someone throw me an English word for this please).

https://www.chepicap.com/en/news/8079/legendary-financial-market-analyst-and-btc-skeptic-marc-faber-buys-bitcoin.html

Bitcoin scored a major victory by converting a famous nocoiner and Bitcoin hater. You may have seen him over the last few years when Mr. Faber does his typical rounds on CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg. He is an old school gold bug and used to mock and deride Bitcoin and its hodlers.
 

"Readers of Faber’s “Gloom, Doom, Doom” report have been encouraging him to buy Bitcoin for years now, he explained. He finally conceded for “learning reasons,” the news outlet reports. Additionally, Faber recently sat down with millionaire entrepreneur Wence Casares, CEO of Xapo - the world’s largest Bitcoin depository and executive director at PayPal - which may have affected his decision."


Many of these famous old school stubborn gold bugs like Mr. Faber, Jim Rickards, and Peter Schiff have been very outspoken critics of Bitcoin. Converting Mr. Faber is a great sign. Next we will convert Schiff, Rickards, and the rest of his ilk and these famous gold bugs will become powerful allies in the run to 100k.

88 days into the new Baby Bull Market and all is well.  Grin

Also, there is something called the triune brain theory. It states that the brain can be thought of as three different systems that developed over time throughout evolution. The oldest part is what we call the lizard brain, it contains all the automatic functions that are required to stay alive. Blood pressure, heartbeat, breathing, rapid fight or flight responses, hormonal adjustments, terribly boring stuff but vital. We don't care about this part.

The next part is the limbic system, what we commonly call the subconscious part of the brain. It contains emotions and instincts. Everything that makes humans different from other animals, our essential core personality. And it still works the same way it did before we fucked up and invented agriculture, which is why people do so many dumb things that make no sense in a modern context.

The newest system is the thinking part of the brain. It deals with numbers, cause and effect, anything that requires conscious thought. It can reprogram the subconscious which is how we learn things. It is also extremely slow and energy intensive compared to the emotional part of the brain, which is why most people do not use it unless absolutely required. It is not fully developed before the age of about 25, which helps to explain teenagers.

NPCs use primarily the emotional part of the brain. They don't think, they just feel. They carry out automatic scripts.

What I have observed is that high-amygdala people use the thinking part of the brain more. I believe it has to do with a heightened sense of danger, which prompts us to develop new and better modes of operation because the ones we have are obviously not sufficient. Small-amygdala people do not see the coming dangers. They are physically incapable of perceiving them. I have yet to see a serious study look into this connection, but I would bet money on it being correct.
