Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
I’m reading the Wisdom of Psychopaths, by Kevin Dutton. The book finally gets to the heart of the psychopathic personality. I won’t retype it all here, but I will transcribe Dutton’s commentary about it.
As we can see, the experts have the psychopaths just about flatlining when it comes to Agreeableness, which is not surprising given that lying, manipulation, callousness and arrogance are just about the gold standard of psychopathic traits by most clinicians. Conscientiousness is low. Impulsivity, lack of long term goals, and failure to take responsibility are high. But notice how Competence bucks the trend (Ed. 4.2 on a scale of 1 to 5), a measure of the psychopath’s unshakeable self confidence and insouciant disregard for adversity, and how the pattern continues with Neuroticism: Anxiety, Depression, Self Consciousness and Vulnerability are very low, with strong outputs on Extraversion (Assertiveness and Excitement Seeking) and Openness to Experience (Actions), generates that air of raw elemental charisma.
The element to distill out of psychopathy is courage, and we can use actual psychopaths to model it for us.
The reason people fail at things in life is most often because they lose courage. That is how I interpret the Psychopath getting a 4.2 in Competence, while being an asshole in every other way. He has the Courage that others lack. That’s how important Courage and Fortitude are.
A failure of courage is because of the Neurotic traits Anxiety and Guilt and Depression, which the Psychopath lacks.
Anxiety, Guilt and Depression are not Adaptative, except for the priest classes that cultivate Neuroticism in order to get social control and money from the “flock.” Neuroticism is never adaptive to the neurotic himself; it is a psychological tool, a Mind Weapon, of parasitic elites.
That’s what it means to be a Terminator. The Kung Fu of Psychopathy — distilling and modeling the Courage of the Psychopath, without adopting the bad parts like lack of Conscientiousness or lack of Empathy. Like being a martial artist with a just heart.
It actually circles back to Buddhism as well. Buddhism says that fear is only “seeing monsters.” Illusory monsters, that is.
The Buddhist exercises of qigong and yoga stimulate the spine, which is the mood determining part of the brain. An elongated, stimulated spine makes you not fear the monsters. It gives you the basis to get rid of neuroticism, but you have to make a final, conscious decision to discard neuroticism completely. In other words, you need to get to know a real Psychopath, and a successful one, and model his courage for yourself. It really helps to meet people with psychological traits that you want to adopt for yourself, and to work with them or hang out with them as much as you can. You can get psychological traits by more or less osmosis from them.
I highly recommend this book, and cultivating friendships with successful psychopaths.
