  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov13Post.mp4 There are two ways to make an impression on somebody. One is to be "better" than everybody else. This is what nearly everybody does. Even when we are having regular conversations with regular people, everybody tends to outdo one another. The loudest laugh, the most interesting comment or anecdote. Most of the stuff most people do is done to hopefully impress others. Imagine, just for a moment, that nobody was allowed to talk about things like watching documentaries, or other non-fictional material. Sure, we like to watch those things because they are interesting, but we also like to watch those things so we can talk about how we like to watch those things. Few people "brag" about how they love to watch brainless superhero movies. But plenty of people "brag" about how they watch documentaries. Check any online dating profile, and people will tend to use the idea that they watch documentaries as a kind of positive trait about themselves. Documentaries kind of give us "ammunition" to use when discussing important things with important people. When we need to have interesting and important sounding opinions. But this kind of thing really doesn't get people's juices flowing. Most people like to feel good feelings. Happy feelings. Funny feelings. Excited feelings. Romantic feelings. Sexual feelings. Talking about how we spend time watching TED talks sort of makes us sound smart, but it doesn't create the feelings people REALLY want to feel. Few people have the ability to just show up and make people feel good. When we try to do this, we try to relate funny stories. Things that happened to us. But this is STILL a kind of competition. Whoever can relate the most interesting, and hopefully funny stories. This can be fun. But it's also presents the "fastest gun in the west" problem. Once you establish yourself as a funny anecdote type person, it's pretty EASY to outdo. You tell a goofy story about some guy you met on the bus. Somebody else can easily outdo you by looking in THEIR brain and finding an equally funny store. "Hey, that's like that one guy I saw other day..." And just like that, your time in the spotlight is over. The solution? Outframe EVERYBODY. Forget about competing based on CONTENT. Outframe everybody by focusing on STRUCTURE. When you focus on content, it automatically reminds people of other, similar content. Which leads to never ending content contests. But when you switch to using structure, nobody will have any IDEA what you just did. But they'll have a funny feeling in their brain. One that is hard to match. Since it's very hard to define. This will give YOU a reputation that nobody else can ever come close to. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.teachable.com/p/party-hypnosis/

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov12Post.mp4 One of the most important ideas is flexibility. The more ways you can skin a cat, the more likely you'll skin a cat. If you can only skin a cat using your special cat skinning knife, and you can't find it, you won't be skinning any cats. Of course, nobody would really want to skin a cat. That would be dangerous. Cat's don't really like having their skin removed. But the idea of skinning cat, or more importantly the part about having more than one way to skin cat, is instructive. As all metaphors are. Once they had this cooking show. It was one expert chef with a couple of amateurs. Two or three teams. The game was they wouldn't know what they had to cook with until the timer started going off. And they usually had very simple ingredients. Stuff most of us have in our own kitchens. (Don't worry, they weren't cooking skinned cats!) The fun part was watching these master chefs whip up some pretty good dishes with only some basic ingredients. The more flexible you are, the less you need to work with to get whatever it is you want. What do most of us want? More money, more sex, more social recognition and respect. What do we have to work with? Most of us aren't rich. We aren't gorgeous. We don't wear thousands of dollars worth of bling. But we don't need that kind of stuff. We only need the ideas that exist already in our brains. And an understanding of the structure of language. The structure of language is very closely related to the structure of thought. Two things people RARELY even think about. When most people communicate, they take half baked thoughts and spit them out with randomly chosen words. This is common, this is ordinary, this is expected. This is also pretty safe, and pretty boring. It won't get you into any trouble. But it won't get you paid or laid either. What will? Using your communication like a tool. A playful tool. You don't need any more education. You don't need spend any time collecting world class experiences. All you need to do is to take some time and understand the massive amount of flexibility in your language and your thought. To turn people's random streams of boring ideas into linguistic pretzels. To take the common complaints and limitations other people spit out and turn them into reasons to laugh out loud. What will this do for you? This will make you much more popular. Much more attractive. Much more fun to be around. No bling or beauty required. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.teachable.com/p/party-hypnosis/

  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov11Post.mp4 A very common issue is as follows. A guy or gal will want something socially. Maybe a date, maybe a sale, maybe simply increasing their network. They make an attempt. And it doesn't go very well. For a guy, it might be talking to a girl to get her number. For a gal, it might be the same. Talking to somebody, sort of "feeling it" but not knowing quite how to close. Or it could be somebody who is at a networking meeting, but they don't get as many contacts as they'd wished. The basic structure, though, is the same. A person interacts socially, and gets a less than desirable result. So they go home, go online and ask the Internet for advice. So far, so good. The Internet is a FANTASTIC invention. A very, very HELPFUL invention. But when it comes to giving advice on how to behave in social situations, it falls very short. Because when you describe your problem, you do so ONLY with words. And when you get the ideas from others, it comes ONLY in words. Social communications is VERY MUCH based on non-verbal energy. IMPOSSIBLE to describe in words. If you have the right energy, the words don't really matter. If you have the wrong energy, no words will work. Operating socially is very much like any kind of competitive sport. What you do is very much dependent on what the other person just did. And the only way to improve how you respond, in the moment, to what the other guy just did is to practice. At least in sports. But there is some very powerful techniques you can use socially. That make it much EASIER to respond in the moment. To respond in the moment much more spontaneously. Much less dependent on outcome. The reason outcome independence works so well is it frees up TONS of extra brain processing time. If you HAVE an outcome, you will always have that outcome in the back of your mind. It's like trying to work on your PC with a software update going on in the background. That software update makes everything SUPER SLOW. So if you are holding an outcome in mind, even subconsciously, it will make it much more difficult to respond in the moment. But here's the best part. Since all humans are social animals, we all have the SAME outcome programmed deeply into our instincts. We WANT to create positive social relationships. So you don't NEED to have an outcome. It's already programmed into your DNA. It's programmed into their DNA. Whoever they are. The easiest way to practice outcome independence? Literally, have ZERO outcome. Except to make people smile, laugh and have a good time. If you can do that, people will do everything to keep you around. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.teachable.com/p/party-hypnosis/

  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov10Post.mp4 Laughter is a very powerful tool. From a purely physiological standpoint, it provides quick stress release. When we laugh, our body quickly contracts, and then releases. When we release, it also releases a lot of pent up stress. From a purely energetic standpoint, it's like a quick purge of bad energy. And it feels very good. Even in a bad situation, a quick comment can significantly relieve the stress. Long time ago I went to traffic school. The kind to keep a traffic ticket off your record. The guy who taught it was a cop. He said the only time he ever let somebody off a ticket was if they told him a quick joke. Not a set up, but a comment that was spontaneous and in the moment. Nearly all women, when they list the required traits of the their dream guy, is a sense of humor. Being able to take a serious situation and reframe it in the moment to something funny is a very attractive trait. Because if you can reframe something serious into something funny, you can pretty much reframe anything into anything. Demonstrating skills of humor presupposes a deep and very flexible way of thinking. To say that somebody doesn't have a sense of humor is to say they are very rigid in their thinking. To say that somebody has a great sense of humor is saying a lot. Much more than making people laugh. That you can pretty much handle anything that comes up. That you can think way outside the box. That when unexpected things come up, you don't stand their frozen. You come up with solutions. The linguistic structure of humor is very similar to the linguistic structure of conversational hypnosis. One way to create a massive frame of attraction is to be known as a hypnotist. To be known as a hypnotist is to be confident, funny, lateral thinking, and very friendly and spontaneous. All very, very attractive traits. The more you learn the structure of humor, the more you'll learn the structure of hypnosis. This goes both ways. And since this is a structure, not something that's inborn, it's easy for anybody to learn. Learn the structure of language. Learn the structure of thought. Learn the structure of subconscious and non verbal communication. This is pretty much the master key of human nature. The more you practice, the better you'll get.

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov09Post.mp4 Acting is an interesting job. Every year, tens of thousands of young people move to Hollywood. And many more have that as a dream. Why is a job as an actor so compelling? For one, it brings a ton of fame. Being famous is very, very compelling. You get tons of money. And you have tons of choice when it comes to romantic and sexual opportunities. But even deeper, being famous is like a drug. It's one thing for a couple people to look at you and give you positive attention. But having thousands of fans screaming how much they love you? That is a drug like no other. And the way to get that SEEMS easy. Acting is one thing that doesn't SEEM to require any kind of technical training. Plenty of actors were discovered while doing other things. The idea of memorizing some lines, and then saying them correctly sounds very easy. So from a deep, instinctive standpoint, the job of being an actor feels VERY compelling. You don't have to do very much. And you GET pretty much everything you could ever want. It's one thing to spend years in school learning some really hard STEM subject, only to make $50K a year. But memorize some easy to say lines, and get paid a few million? AND be adored by millions of people? That is a dream job! But here's the thing. Many actors absolutely SUCK. Watch any lame streaming movie and it will be filled with no-name actors that can't act to save their lives. The MAIN skill of being an actor is being CONGRUENT. Of saying something that's NOT TRUE but saying it so it's believable. Groucho Marx talked about this. He said that the most important thing is sincerity. And if you can FAKE that, you've got it made! This is essentially the core skill that most top notch actors have. Of being able to FAKE sincerity. Of saying something that is not true, yet having a very STRONG and BELIEVABLE frame. Even if you don't want to be an actor, having a strong frame will make EVERYTHING easier. If you are in a social setting, having the strongest frame will make you the most attractive. If you are applying for a job, having the strongest frame will make you stand out the most. In nearly every case where technical skills are NOT required, having a strong frame is BETTER than having a weak frame. How do you BUILD a strong frame?

  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov08Post.mp4 Metaphors are very helpful, and they are also very dangerous. They are helpful as they ease the transmission of ideas from brain to brain. They facilitate communication. They don't need to be accurate. So long as everybody has an internal idea of what they mean. We all have plenty of shared experiences. But these shared experiences are very hard to articulate. For example, say you see a cute girl across the room. You start walking over, but then you lose your nerve. So you slightly shift your trajectory and walk somewhere else. All the while pretending that was your initial plan. You do this so nobody will know, except you and your buddies, that you chickened out at the last minute. This is a very common experience. So when you came back, and face your friends, EVERYBODY knows what's up. They ask, "Why did you abort?" You answer, "Just wasn't feeling it." They know what you mean. You know what you mean. But supposed you were hosting an exchange student from another planet. A creature that was like Spock. Pure logic. He wouldn't understand why you used the term "abort." He would have no clue what it means to say, "not feeling it." Between humans, these two simple phrases, "abort" and "not feeling it" convey a TON of information. But to a Vulcan, they would be meaningless. This is how metaphors work to convey a TON of information, utterly rich in emotional complexity, with only a few phrases. However, when we argue, metaphors are the LAST thing we need. Because metaphors used to argue tend to completely miss the point. When having a verbal confrontation, often metaphors get in the way. They make very simple arguments SOUND complex. But if you pay close attention, the metaphors are REALLY saying some very, very simple ideas. Your idea is stupid. No, your idea is stupid. You are stupid! No, YOU are stupid!! If you pay close attention to any disagreement, especially online, this is basically the structure. Even worse is when you have a bunch of people on either side of the argument. Because the colorfully metaphorical statement of "you are stupid" means a great deal to one side. Just like "abort" and "not feeling" it means a great deal. The trick is to train yourself to look beneath the metaphors. To FORCE the other person to present their case in NON metaphorical terms. Because when they do that, they will be forced to admit their ENTIRE argument is of the form, "you" or "your idea" is stupid. Once you get them to admit that, it's very easy to crush their position. Just keep asking them why they think that. Since nearly ALL arguments are based on emotions, and NOT logic, this is an easy way to WIN every single argument. With anybody.

  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov07Post.mp4 Fight Club was a fantastic movie. A lot of ideas about masculine energy, what happens when there is a lack of positive male models, etc. But there was one scene in particular that was interesting. After the two main characters had their first couple of fights. It gave them a much better sense of everybody around them. They would get on a bus, for example, and IMMEDIATELY scan the crowd, and figure out who they could likely beat in a fight, and who they might not. This is one of those movie scenes that is intuitively true. Anything "new" that you do will do this to you. Once I was painting my first condo, a long, long time ago. A friend casually remarked that having had that experience, of going through all the trouble of painting my own house, I would never look at another paint job the same way. And he was right. For a while after that, whenever I went into somebody's home, I found myself checking out the quality of their paint job. Our brains have tons of filters. It has to, otherwise we'd go insane. So it needs to sort for things that are important. And bypass all the stuff that aren't important. This is the same as the red car effect. When you don't notice all the red cars. And then you buy a red car, and see all the red cars. Before, you hadn't done anything to indicate that red cars are important. So you filtered them out. The process of buying a red car slowly re-calibrates your filters. Since you bought one, this means they are important. So you start to see them. Before I painted my own walls, the quality of a paint job didn't matter. But since I spent a lot of time, money, and effort, it became important. Of course, after a while, it kind of become unimportant again. But if you fight, or train consistently, you'll get the "Fight Club" response. Measuring people up will be second nature. This happens when you practice verbal fighting skills as well. So long as you do a little bit of practice every day, you'll have a completely different set of filters. You'll see the things people are hiding behind their words. You'll start to notice the loud obnoxious people who are really cowards on the inside. Not just from a theoretical standpoint. But from an intuitive, deep knowing standpoint. You'll also see the opposite. The seemingly shy, quiet types that you know have rock solid self confidence and self esteem. And once you learn how to read people the way they REALLY are, not just the way they are projecting themselves, YOU will be radiating a much different kind of energy. A much more powerful kind of energy. A much more attractive kind of energy. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/

  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov06Post.mp4 Some of the most annoying conversations are on TV. Especially between some TV journalist and somebody they disagree with. Even more especially is if the person on TV doesn't have a lot of experience with TV language. This is been portrayed in books and movies quite a bit. They kind of sucker punch the TV guest. They build him or her up beforehand. Tell him how interested they are. Stroke the crap out of their ego. So when they get on TV, the are expecting some softballs. Easy to answer questions that they can easily spin to promote whatever it is they want to promote. So they are not ready for the viciousness of the TV host. This is pretty widely understood. What is not so widely understood is how, specifically, the TV host easily destroys the guest. One technique is the "but what about..." technique. Whenever we hear the word, "but" we instantly recognize the structure. One idea BUT another idea. Even without knowing the two ideas, we know intuitively they are opposite somehow. So the guest will be talking about something related to their book or idea or whatever is they are on TV to promote. The host will hear something they don't like. They interrupt them and say, "Yes, but what about..." The guest is suddenly unsure of what is going on. For the people watching the show, the host just obliterated the guest. But in reality, this is a kind of "sleight of question." Because humans don't pay super close attention to the stuff said on TV. So when they use the "Idea one BUT idea two" pattern, idea two doesn't need to be anywhere CLOSE to idea one. They only need to SOUND close. So when the host says, "Yes, but what about idea two?" and the guest becomes uncomfortable, maybe stutters a little bit, it looks like the host got a point. Example. Suppose they got a guy on their talking about his new cookbook. About how to bake a cake. And he's describing how to make a cake. And he gets to the part where you need to add two eggs. The host only needs to hear the "two eggs" part. So he or she interrupts and says: "Wait, but aren't eggs dangerous, don't they have a lot of cholesterol, what about vegans who don't eat eggs?" This SORT OF SOUNDS logical. But it really doesn't make much sense. Baking cakes, general health, and the merits of vegetarianism are three completely different conversational topics. But for people watching, they only remember the VAGUE outcome: "Dude, I saw this guy on TV promoting his cookbook but the TV lady OBLITERATED him!" "Really, what happened?" "Oh, you should have seen it. She DESTROYED him!" Of course, if you take time to learn the linguistic structure of verbal fights, this will NEVER happen to you. You will be the one doing the obliterating. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/
  16. Misdirection Word Magic: https://mindpersuasion.com/misdirection-word-magic/ https://soundcloud.com/mindpersuasion/magic-word-misdirection https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov06Loop.mp4
  17. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov05Post.mp4 I watched an interesting lecture a few days ago. A guy was talking about how different skills can fetch different incomes, now compared to a hundred years or so go. His imaginary comparison was a guy a hundred years ago that had pretty good math skills, but very weak social skills. The best that guy could do a hundred years ago would be a math professor. Which wouldn't tend to make a lot of money. But a guy today with a ton of math skills and low social skills could easily make six figures or higher. Working as a programmer for a large trading company. Most trades that happen in the stock market today are done by these high frequency trading machines. Or HFT's. The guys who create these algorithms can make a ton of cash. This is a way to see the difference between social skills and technical skills. One one extreme, you can have mad technical skills and low social skills. This is the stereotypical introverted genius who makes millions. On the other hand, you an have mad social skills but zero technical skills. These types become salespeople, actors and politicians. Most of us are in the middle somewhere If you were to get a job at a company, they would need to make sure you knew what you were doing. This would be the technical skills. But because they HAVE face to face interviews, technical skills are not the ONLY skills. They also need to know you're not a psychopath and can work well with others. Most companies require that you interact with others effectively to get the job done. This means you need to hang around with, and work effectively with, people you wouldn't otherwise choose to be your friends. If you are not so good at this, it will limit you. If you do happen to have a ton of technical skills, like programming or any science related skills, that can compensate. The worst situation would be to be an average guy with average technical skills, but below average social skills. This would make life very hard. Luckily, most who lack social skills really lack social confidence. Humans are social animals. Being social isn't anything you need to learn. It comes naturally. Or at least it SHOULD come naturally. But if you have some baggage that keeps you from getting in the game, you won't have the luxury of learning social skills easily and naturally. But that's OK. Because once you eliminate all social fears, it WILL happen naturally. And as it turns out, being utterly devoid of any social fear will make you very VALUABLE socially. Which is good news, since there is a step by step process to utterly obliterate any social fears you may have. Learn How: https://udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/

  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov04Post.mp4 One theory from evolutionary psychology is called mismatch theory. It's all about how our instincts were calibrated, way back in the day. And how they are being mis fed today. Hunger is easiest one to understand. Our mind body system was calibrated in an environment where we were always hungry. The food we could get was scarce. Both the amount and the type. Mostly meat, fat, a few fruits here and there, and whatever else we could find naturally growing. This never ending hunger motivated us to always be on the lookout for something to eat. As soon as we found something to eat, THAT became our number one priority. When you are REALLY hungry, and you start eating something, it's very hard to maintain conscious control. We have tons of instincts. These instincts helped us stay alive back when life was really dangerous. The stuff we did that KEPT us alive felt really good. Stuff that was dangerous felt really bad. Being hungry, loud noises, and negative social approval. All of these were signals that something was wrong. That something needed to be fixed. If you were to study martial arts, you could do so for many reasons. Health, confidence, even spiritual reasons. But if you ONLY wanted to know how to defend against an attacker, it wouldn't take as long. Carry some pepper spray. Practice pulling it out and spraying it in their eyes. Or practice ramming your keys in somebody's eyes. Or practice kicking somebody in the nuts, or punching them in the throat. None of these are elegant. They are only meant to disable the bad guy so you can run away. In order to do this, you need to know the soft spots. The eyes, the throat, the groin. The strategy is pretty simple. Hit them in the soft spots and run. Funny thing is even practicing these very basic defensive skills gives you plenty of confidence. It turns out we have a lot of emotional soft spots as well. Related to our very ancient social instincts. That ones that make us feel terrible when we are misbehaving socially. There are plenty of linguistic defensive skills to hit your enemies in those emotional soft spots. And just like practicing physical defense, practice linguistic defense will give plenty of confidence. Even better is when you do these mentally. While staring at your enemy. It will them a very creepy feeling. One that says it's a very BAD idea to mess with you. Ever. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/

  21. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov03Post.mp4 I remember once a long time ago, I was hanging out with a buddy. We were sitting on a park bench somewhere. In between one activity and another. We ended up talking non stop for about an hour. It was one of those conversations that really gets your juices going. Funny thing was that the topic of the conversation wasn't important. Because neither of us remembered it. But we both remembered the underlying feeling. The best my friend could describe it was being "high on life." Normal human conversations tend to flow spontaneously and organically. They say something, which reminds you of something, which reminds them of something. Nothing that requires much conscious participation. So long as there is plenty of energy, the conversation can flow for a while. When we are hanging around new people, this is much less likely. Normal people are more guarded around new people. Must less open. These two metaphors, "open" and "guarded" are PERFECT. We have our inner, true selves. Then we have our outer selves that we present to the world. The more we know the person we are speaking with, the more we feel comfortable expressing our true selves. When we don't know somebody, we are naturally careful about letting them know the true us. When we meet somebody with whom there is mutual attraction, and a sudden feeling of safety with respect to sharing our true selves, this is a FANTASITC feeling. It's also very rare. If you are too open with too many people, you'll get burned. If you are never open with anybody, you'll never click with anybody. One way to think of this is that we all have a kind of internal frequency, and external frequency. When we are with close friends, our internal frequencies are closely matched, and mostly open. This is the deep resonance that happens with close conversations with friends. Sometimes thought, we meet somebody that has ill intentions. Maybe they are just pure evil. Maybe there is something about us that makes them dislike us. Some of these people are pretty open with their distaste for us. These are easy to see, and easy to avoid. But some are very, very clever. They know in order to do maximum harm, they need to harm the inside of us. So they seem friendly. They seem cordial. And they way they deliver their venom almost seems friendly as well. But it leaves a bad taste in our brains. Like a covert, time released insult. When they do this in front of others, it can be devastating. Luckily, you can learn to defend against these types. By understanding the relationship between surface structure language, and deeper intentions. Not only will this make it much harder on those covert vampires, but it will make it much EASIER to stop the good types. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/

  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov02Post.mp4 Long time ago I took a class in basic biology. We spent some time studying primates. The class was near a popular zoo, so we could get extra credit to go and watch the chimpanzees and write a kind of observational report. The professor got us a free entry, so it was pretty cool. We also spent one class going over the various ways primates mess with each other. He explained that if you wanted to make a primate agitated, stare at him, make your eyes big and show your teeth. Throw down an obvious challenge. On the other hand, if you happened to be wandering out in the jungle and happened across a group of gorillas, doing that would be a very bad idea. The alpha gorilla would run up to you and smash you. But if you immediately bowed your head down, and faced the ground, he would recognize it as a sign of submission. In the middle ages, there were different levels in the human hierarchy. Their were the kings, the lords, and the serfs working on the farms. In some areas, and during some times, a serf could choose which noble he served. These weren't one way relationships. They were kind of like primitive business relationships. Your job was to live on the land, grow the food, etc. If you got attacked, the noble was responsible for defending you. If your lord decided to go to war against a neighbor, you had to help. There was a very specific ceremony when you pledged your allegiance to any noble. You had to kneel before him. You couldn't wear a hat. You had to bow your head, and hold your hands together as if in prayer. The lord would clasp his hands around the outside of yours and squeeze. On one hand, this seems kind of silly. Especially from a modern perspective. But from a human instinctive standpoint, it's very similar to primates like chimps and gorillas. They live in hierarchies. We live in hierarchies. Problems pop up in modern society when we run into people we don't know. At school, at work, in the club, on the street. These same dominance instincts exist. We don't run at each other screaming and beating our chests. But we do tend to subconsciously project and read signals. Often how we speak to each other reveals how we really feel about each other. For most modern humans, these ever present hierarchy games are like water a fish. Something that is vital to our survival. But something most rarely notice. Which means if you can understand and master this subconscious hierarchy based communication, you will gain a HUGE advantage. Learn How: http://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/

  25. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov01Post.mp4 I was watching this discussion the other day. A couple of guys on TV were talking about the problems most people have. One guy was saying it's because we don't get enough sleep. Another guy was saying it's because we eat crap food. Another guy said it was because everybody's broke. It reminded me of a video series I was watching on differential equations. A simple example is the predator prey problem. You've got grass, which is dependent on the rain. You've got rabbits, which eat the grass. And you've got foxes, which eat the rabbits. A change in rain will change the grass, which will change the rabbits, which will change the foxes. Three of the four variables (foxes, rabbits, grass) are interdependent. Change one, and you change other three. But they are also dependent on the rain, which is a function of weather. Something that super genius humans with super powerful computers have trouble predicting. This problem, a system of three or more interdependent variables, is what led to the idea of chaos theory. Of knowing the rules, but at the same time being utterly incapable of using those same rules to predict the future. They use huge computers to simulate things like the predator-prey problem. They set the initial conditions, and predict what the system will be like in a year or so. Then they go back and change those same initial conditions, but by making as tiny changes as they can. And the result, a year out, is WAY different than the first time. This is why they can't predict the weather with very much accuracy more than a few days out. Large trends, sure. But when and where it will rain, the exact temperature? Not a chance. Now imagine how many variables there are in a large human society. Kajillions. Many of them interdependent. Many of them based on human intentions. Human intentions which change every second. You're walking down the street, in a good mood. You smile at a sexy person, and they smile back. Now you're in a fantastic mood. But what if you smile at that same pretty person, and they flip you the bird? Or spit at you? Now your mood is ruined. One interaction, out of the hundreds of interactions you have per day. Talk about chaos theory! Trying to predict what other people will do is hopeless. Even worse if your happiness is dependent on other people. All you can do is improve how you INTERACT with others. You can't change what they will do. But you most certainly can change how you can RESPOND to them. Not just a little. But a lot. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/
