    OUR SOCIETY AND EDUCATION ANALYZED BY AUTOLOGIE LOGICAL MECHANICS.

    Note/Update: I kind of realize the website is a bit of a "new age" self-help theme based on a transhumanist movement akin to L. Ron Hubbards Dianetics/Scientology, and I can't help but think of 'Auditing' when I read through the website. Incidentally I came across the website when someone requested to add me as a friend on Facebook, and I just randomly came across the feed in their page and reshared it; it turns out that they were the author of the website and offered to invite me to ask questions. If you hadn't noticed the website is written by someone who isn't a native English speaker and despite their intelligence, I'm not sure how serious I can take them (a lot of very intelligent people can be a bit atypical and have a preoccupation with an idea that compels them to the exclusion of how relevant it is to the people they are trying to identify the message with.) Sometimes their ideas can seem so abstract I suspect most anyone that comes across the subject must think they are mentally warped, if not eccentric.

    Aside from that, I came across an INFJ that some might resonate with:

    Playlist

    Creepy: I like how she talks about loneliness and starts the video sort of perking her lips together. . . She even includes her email in her 'About Me' page, and her name is Olivia.

    People change their moral values to benefit themselves over others

    Should people be skeptical of what might seem overtly considerate, if it serves a selfish agenda? Does a culture that promotes doing good for ultimately self-serving reasons hold altruism as it's locus, or rather a presentation of sympathy; sans empathy? Though clearly it's implied that people possess genuine empathy, I think of it a bit like how much easier it is for people to remember the positives and not the negatives, and overtime we prefer to think history was more benevolent than it is, and the crux of the question is does a society which relies upon subservience to tribalistic mindsets render through the illusion of authority a proxy of selective mutism? Does "Southern Hospitality" have a carry-over from gentrified elitism; where one person's loss of liberty becomes another one's sign of prosperity? Do inequitable class stratification and impartial bias towards eldritch practices of subservience to vicarious ego-fulfillment render an illusion of free-will if otherwise, it comes from an entitlement framework? It's been said by Native Americans that some of their languages don't possess a comparison of the word "Thank you" because hospitality is second-nature; that to express thank you implies it is a forced contract and not a way of life.

    One could also argue that society needs to be reminded of tribulations as otherwise, without suffering, we fail to comprehend the meaning of needs and wants beyond ourselves; so people gradually replace compassion with a language that becomes little-more than a formality, and little substance behind the words. People become automatons that identify with an image that has foregone any true meaning.

    It seems like a potentially misguided self-help akin to Tony Robbins, but gives off a cultish vibe like Scientology. I suspect the transhumanist mindset is Luciferian inspired.

    You may want to read the articles posted from the drop-down menu.

    She seems to have decent insight and stays focused on the intuitive analysis that many INTP and similar types should relate to.

    The Psychopathic Mother: When children grow up without empathy or love. (all of this rings true)
    Why psychopaths cannot love their own children, according to a psychologist
    The Impact of Psychopathy on the Family By Liane J. Leedom

    Failure to Thrive as a Manifestation of Child Neglect

    Shrewd as Snakes: The Psychopath and the Christian

    Are religious people more moral?



    Socially isolated people are less likely to put themselves at risk though potentially become more vulnerable to collateral effects of dealing with the plebeians, who are more likely to act as social support animals to one another thus mitigating the burdon of social commitment.

    As INTP it seems that a large part of why we rarely seek validation from others results from a sense of alienation (and those from backgrounds where you feel neglected are more likely to view friendships as burdens,) whereas the flock of usual types will aspire to buddy-buddy and work against the "opposition" (or outsiders.)
