Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
@MentORPHEUS cool, I'll take a look at it.
I've realised through this that I don't have a problem with bias.
I have concern when people have no process of challenging their bias.
That results in a lot of ego defence, hurt feelings and emoting when they are challenged.
@MentORPHEUS you're right about the logical parts being seperate.
This is why I urge guys to read dense texts and write. It trains a whole different part of the brain.
I tell them to read Evola so they actually think, even if they reject it.
@MentORPHEUS yes, I totally agree.
I've had to do a lot of work this year on my biases, due to my work.
It is an awesome thing to actually 'feel' how bias works in myself.
It's like a chain of reaction s which end up causing my brain to process information in a certain way.
We all have bias, I agree. It's not a bad thing, it is merely a thing. A reality.
It's why I find epistomology such a handy tool. I am able to run my bias through a process and see if it is better classed as bias, projection, conjecture or whatever.
I have found that it might possibly change neuro pathways.
When I am assessing situations, such as the recent events in the US, my mind sees a lot more of both sides. It feels different in a phenomenallogical.
It's as if my mind naturally sits in 'I have no idea of the facts, so I'm neutral right now.
That's just my own experience, but I hypothesize that understanding epistomology, looking at my own biases etc has changed my neuro pathways.
Perhaps that's what causes a lot of decent at the moment. People's minds are locked in set pathways.
Their minds may literally not be 'open'.Read More
@Daily-Prescription uhh.. actually everybody should be condemning that. That's one of the major contributing factors to why the black population is in utter ruins. Skin color doesn't change the fact that everybody can be subjected to the same mental conditioning and brainwashing. And when the only major type of artist that gets put our from your community is some tacky 3rd grade level rapper with face tats that does lean, glorifies violence.. and then you hear it over and over and over again..and then you and your community do nothing to either stop it, or attempt to teach new generations differently.. yes. They're part of the problem. In fact, all those who listen and do nothing to challenge it are at fault. Also the record labels. (but that's they're game and people are too stupid to see it )Read More
@TheStoicCrane look I'm with ya 100%.. I've been looking at myself the last couple days and saying "wow. At first I was saying fuck these protestors and looters. They don't give a fuck about george". And now I'm seeing just how militaristic and fascist this behavior is. And now I'm gearing up to travel to DC to stand on the front lines. I did it in 2011 and I'll do it again now. The government serves us. Not the other way. I'll gladly die defending my civil liberties. This shit is unacceptable.
@INNASKILLZ2K20 I'm also concerned with the epistemological shortcomings of the average person, and the biases I bring up affect the very building blocks of one's worldview.
I do believe a lot of people build beliefs on emotion, bias and generalization, instead of logic, investigation and understanding
This is true by the very nature of the hardware and firmware that human consciousness runs upon. We're mostly creatures of emotion, bias, and generalization; the logical investigative ones are like a separate module kludged to work piggyback on a legacy emotional system.
