PLEASE DO NOT take this as personal offence, as I am still a bit of a
standard critic at heart, begining my cyberlife on
In the spirit of the recent few postings I will reveal a grand truth, by
which grand scientist will notice what I mean by "you're living under a
rock". Hopefully your grand science will eventualy catch up.
Instinct... You grand scientist probably all know the wicked evil sides
of it, while I will ignore the fact that you refuse to know all of it's
good sides (P.S.: It's usefull genetic knowledge). The instinct requires
it's actions in the brain, which can, by some, be found annoying.
You probably all know that it isn't a particular chalenge to deactivate
or counter an instinct, most easily done in a person's childhood. And
while it is so easy to block out, this is not as without side-effects as
one would want it. The neural instinct circut still generates neural
noize (signals that don't do anything other than bother other neural
functions, most commonly the ones contoling the eye pupil size, but also
others) and, more importantly: Stress!
While these side-effects might not seem as awfull to everybody, I might
add they can result in memory loss, which is likely to remain
unavailable for longer periods of time (years) finnaly resulting in less
thinking capacity, which may be roughly related to IQ (but as in the
nature of all IQ tests, depends on the test itself).
Of course I understand that not everybody knows exactly what all
instinct is and I am pretty sure that even those who know, don't know it
all. So I will say, that it's not only the sexual instinct, it is also
the fear of heights, the fear of fast-moving objects, pack-forming
instinct (rare), the nail-biting instinct, etc, etc, etc. And while the
decades-old thought that all humans are equal is still very popular, the
amount of diffirent instincts in various individuals varies greately and
is probably geneticaly passed on. Remember: the mind = the brain = the
People usualy understand taking rid of these as a practicaly good idea.
But such action could be compared to middle-age medicine, where we had
individuals leaking their 'bad blood', just that this time, they're
leaking their 'bad brain' (if you like it or not, you need it!).
And while average humans might think whatever they want to think, they
are forcing these methods to others as well, others who might have a
greater number of instincts and to whom the cost of removing all the
instinct matches up with the cost of removing all of their intelligence
or sanity. Think of it.
Don't feel bad about asking/telling me anything, I will always gladly
