  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug22Post.mp4 A long, long time ago, human brains started to get really big. Eventually, a decision had to be made. Because our brains were getting so big, there was a problem with birth. There were essentially two choices. The first choice was that our hips could keep getting wider and wider, so our brains to keep getting bigger and bigger. That wasn't such a good option, because that would force us back to walking on four legs. So the next option was to have us born WAY before we were finished. This is why humans are helpless for the first couple of years. Compare this too all other mammals, who are mobile. Soon after they are born, every other mammal can get up and walk around. We humans, on the other hand, just lay there and stare off into space. For two whole years! Even after we can get up and walk around, our brains are still being built. In one study, they showed a bunch of kids a puppet show. A kid in the puppet show had some chocolate, and put it in a GREEN cupboard. Then later his mom took some of the chocolate out. She made a cake, and then she put it back into the BLUE cupboard. Then the original kid came back. And said he wanted some chocolate. The question to the kids WATCHING the puppet show was WHERE would he look? Not where the chocolate was, but where he THOUGHT it was. The older kids figured it out. But the kids four and younger couldn't. These means even four year old kids, who can walk around and use language pretty well, STILL don't understand about human intentions. They can't extrapolate what happened before and use that to guess what people are thinking. This is why plenty of our limiting beliefs are so, uh, LIMITING. They were programmed in BEFORE our brains were finished. Before we understood how OUR intentions are different from OTHER people's intentions. Before we could understand how to GUESS other people's intentions. For some lucky folks, with positive and supportive role models, they don't much of a problem. But for everybody else, we still are stuck with a lot of these limiting beliefs. Perhaps the most DANGEROUS and INSIDIOUS limiting beliefs is the one that creates social anxiety. The one that makes us feel anxious and nervous every time we even THINK about expressing ourselves. The more intelligent you are, the WORSE this feels. Since this was programmed on an emotional, NON-intelligent level. Luckily, there is a solution. A slow, safe gradual we to REMOVE social anxiety.

  2. She'll Come Tonight: https://mindpersuasion.com/pay-for-your-sins/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug22Loop.mp4
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug21Post.mp4 All humans have "problems" with any ideas of causality. This commonly comes out when somebody says: "Correlation does not mean causation." A common example is that in summer, people buy more ice cream. And in summer more people go swimming. Since more people are going swimming, there are more shark attacks. So you COULD see a correlation between ice cream and shark attacks. By assuming CAUASATION, when there is really correlation, you would say that eating ice cream CAUSES shark attacks. This idea is also where a lot of superstitions pop up. For example, let's say you happen to be wearing your pair of purple underwear. And you happen to see an attractive person who smiles at you. It's easy to make a connection between the purple underwear and the smile. From then on, you'll believe your purple underwear is now your LUCKY underwear. This seems kind of silly. But academic researchers who NEED grant money know that finding ANY kind of CORRELATION is pure gold. They don't actually say X causes Y. But they don't need to. They just need to say X is LINKED to Y and they KNOW most people, including media goofs, will ASSUME that "linked" is a "cause-effect" word. If you want to persuade people, cause-effect is a very powerful way. Why are we so likely to assume cause-effect where none exists? Scientists believe it was a benefit. Our brains are fast but inaccurate. Maybe there was an ancient race of people who stood around trying to logically prove everything. But they all got eaten by tigers. The ones who survived were the ones who RAN AWAY first, and figured out why later. They've even done experiments on six month old babies. And they find these babies ASSUME plenty of cause-effect links where none really exist. This is interesting, but it's also VERY DANGEROUS. Turns out this cause-effect "instinct" is the main CAUSE of social anxiety. How so? From the ages of zero to two, most adults were encouraging us to stand up and talk. But then from the ages of two on, they did the opposite. They told us to sit down and shut up. This created a very DANGEROUS cause-effect "brain equation." One like this: Expressing Desire = Danger Unfortunately, this happened BEFORE we learned much about language and reality. Our brains aren't really finished cooking until we're AT LEAST seven. This means between the ages of TWO and SEVEN we are getting some VERY NEGATIVE messages. Messages that say expressing ourselves is dangerous. That calling attention to ourselves is dangerous. Luckily, we can DETACH that brain equation. And GET RID of social anxiety. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/social-anxiety-killer/

  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug20Post.mp4 There's a psychological idea called the "pushback effect." If you've ever gotten into an argument online, you've no doubt experienced it. This, like most of our biases, is something that's easily seen in others, but very hard to see in ourselves. Which means it is an ego-based survival instinct. The pushback effect is triggered when somebody tries to counter your argument. The INSTINCT is to hold fast, regardless of the other person's logic. The MORE you come at the opponent with logic, the MORE they'll dig into their position. Our beliefs are very much associated with our identity. This goes along with the "beliefs as food" idea. We don't really eat food because it's healthy. We eat food because it tastes good. Way back in the day, this was perfect. The BETTER something tasted, the BETTER it was for us. Meat and fat were ideal, as they were dense sources of needed calories. Sweet fruit even better. Roots, and tubers, not so much. They were better than nothing, but not as good as a freshly killed slab of meat. Of course, today, with recent discoveries in chemistry, food is engineered to be delicious. But at the cost of health. Beliefs can operate the same way. We don't believe things because they are true. We believe things because the help us and make us feel good. So when somebody attacks our beliefs, it very much FEELS like they are attacking US. Hence the pushback effect. Somebody attacks our beliefs, which makes us dig in. Very much like a physical confrontation. If somebody pushes you, you push them back. Nearly all "fighting technology" is based on pushing back BETTER than they pushed you. Only few are based on NOT pushing back, but instead using THEIR energy. This can be done conversationally as well. Not in arguments, but in persuasion and influence. For any purpose. Sales, friend making and seduction. Since the pushback effect is based on ego, it's very HARD to turn off. But if you can manage to turn it off, and simply ask very easy to answer, linguistically calibrated questions, they will feel FANTASTIC. Even enjoyable conversations between friends have the pushback effect. Each person is very subconsciously trying to OUTDO the other. But once you shut off your ego, they will be able to EXPAND. The more they EXPAND the better they feel. And when you carefully allow them to expand their ego, they'll be willing to do whatever you want. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/get-anybody/

  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug19Post.mp4 Once upon a time there was an anthropologist named Brown. He wanted to find a set of Human Universals. Characteristics that all humans share. Kind of like Noam Chomsky's idea of Universal Grammar. Most linguists and historians will tell you that there are plenty of different languages on Earth. But Chomsky believed we really only have ONE language. His theory was very technical, and he had a lot of supporting ideas. One of his reasons was that all languages have nouns and verbs and adjectives etc. And you can take any kid and put them any household in any country in the world and they'll grow up speaking that language like a native. His theory was we all speak different dialects of the same language. Similarly, Brown wanted to find a similar set of traits that we all share. Which he did. All of us are scared of snakes. Everybody has some kind of beliefs that could be called mythology, or religion, or superstition. Going back through all major civilizations, they all had SOME kind of "religion philosophy" that connected one's behavior in this world with the world beyond. All humans in all cultures modify their speech when talking to children. A kind of universal "baby talk." You may say that if you go deep enough, we are all similar. But the closer you get toward the surface, the more different we become. Even among family members and close friends you can find this dynamic. We all have a favorite food, but we all have DIFFERENT favorite foods. Closer to the surface are our own conscious reasons and ideas. The deeper you go, the more you get to the driving instincts that we all need to satisfy. Instinctive need for food, love, companionship, safety, self expression. It's common in persuasion to use more top level ideas. We believe OUR reasons for doing things will be persuasive to others. After all, they're good enough for us, right? From inside our own brains, they make perfect sense. But this usually only works with close friends whom we know well. The less you know your target, the deeper you'll need to go in order to persuade. This actually makes it much easier. Since the deeper you go, the MORE similarities we have. Even better, if you start deep enough, and use THEIR ideas that exist up on the surface, persuading them will be easier than you think. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/get-anybody/

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug18Post.mp4 There are a quite a lot of truisms. The problem with truisms is three fold. One is that they are popular. Two is that they are true. Three is where the problems begin. It's how our brain treats "knowledge" and "experience." If you hear something once, it might seem like a good idea. But if you hear it a bunch of times, and eventually begin to repeat it yourself, then it starts to FEEL very familiar. But familiar in a superficial way. Not in a deep, experiential way. You can tell that somebody has this level of "knowledge" when you ask them to explain EXACTLY what they mean. But they can't. They have a weird combination of KNOWING that something is true. They know it as well as their own name. But they can't explain HOW or WHY it's true. When people have ideas, you can tell how they explain them. They say things like, "Well if you think about it, it makes sense." Since that's how THEY experience it inside their own brain. They've ACCEPTED the idea from others. The idea makes them feel good. They've thought about that idea a whole bunch of times. But they've never take the time to actually take apart the idea. This type of thing pops up ALL OVER THE PLACE in self help and self development. Entire seminars are filled with gurus saying these truisms in a whole bunch of different ways. But never once explaining how EXACTLY to apply them. Here's an example. A very common, and often repeated marketing strategy is as follows: "Encourage their dreams, allay their fears, and throw rocks at their enemies." This SOUNDS fantastic. Who wouldn't want their dreams encouraged? Who wouldn't want their fears allayed? Who wouldn't want help throwing rocks at their enemies? Everybody would. Which is why this is GOOD advice and TERRIBLE advice at the same time. Good advice because it rings very true. Terrible advice because it doesn't explain HOW, specifically, to do that. For example, how, exactly would you ENCOURAGE somebody's dreams? You could say something silly and common: "You should TOTALLY go after your dreams!" Or ask them what their dreams are. And then say: "Yeah! You should totally do that!" Problem is that this is the SAME strategy that every other fake goof tries. If you went into an upscale department store, and tried on an expensive shirt, THIS is what they'd say: "That shirt looks great! You'll DEFINITELY get laid!" This is an ATTEMPT to encourage your dreams. Unfortunately, it's the same fake line that EVERY salesperson uses. Luckily, there is a very specific set of linguistic techniques that you can learn. To make it very easy to elicit and BUILD up their dreams. And some more specific linguistic techniques to ENCOURAGE their dreams. In ways they've NEVER experienced.

  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug17Post.mp4 One of the driving forces of all livings is to maximize gains and minimize costs. Most animals, not even us humans, think in these terms. This is a very deep instinct. It has to be. Without even ascribing life to an entity, it must burn energy. Moving takes energy. Your car won't go without any gas. Animals won't be able to move without any fuel. They must consume at least as many calories as they burn. Or else they will die. The ONLY animals that exist must have some deep programming that makes them follow this rule. To MAXIMIZE what they get, and MINIMIZE what they spend. We can see this everywhere in human life. In our day to day life. And in human history. Whenever we buy something, we want to GET as much as we can, while spending as little as we can. Every invention was driven by deep desire get more while spending less. This is what drove the ancient desire behind alchemy. To turn regular dirt into gold. This is what drove the industrial revolution. The ancient Greeks had figured out how to spin something by boiling water. They boil the water, the steam rises and makes something spin around. If you can only burn wood, it's not very efficient. But if you can burn coal, it becomes VERY efficient. Imagine if you had a locomotive with a wood burning engine. You'd have to stop every couple miles. Everybody would have to get out and chop down a bunch of trees. But using coal? You can go a lot further by carrying a lot less WEIGHT. Even when we humans are thinking about doing something, this cost benefit analysis is ALWAYS running in the back of our minds. Especially when it comes to getting others to do what we want. That's why we LOVE the idea of magic words. If there WERE a collection of magic words, that would be FANTASTIC. That would be like ALCHEMY. The idea of walking up to a stranger, speaking these magic words, and then watching them EAGERLY do whatever you wanted. Well, guess what? There IS a way to do that. But it's not based on magic words. More about the kinds of QUESTIONS you ask. Questions that build up a TON of desire. Questions that are absolutely unimposing. Questions that are easy to answer. Questions that are enjoyable to answer. The more you ask, the easier it will be. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/get-anybody/

  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug16Post.mp4 Whenever we do things, we always consider our social reference group. Often this happens quickly and subconsciously. For example, when you look into your closet and spend a couple of seconds picking a shirt, you quickly choose on based on how you'll be perceived by others. If we only needed clothing to cover our skin, and be durable, we'd only wear basic colors. But the fashion industry is a billion dollar a year industry. No matter how much we pretend otherwise, we want VERY MUCH to look good. The idea of walking into a social area, and having people looking at you and smiling BECAUSE of what you are wearing is VERY compelling. There was even this low budget movie about a magic shirt. Whoever was wearing this magic shirt would be SWARMED by hot girls desperate for sex. This is the IDEAL when it comes to anything regarding appearance. Haircut, shoes, watch, etc. But the OPPOSITE is also true. We are TERRIFIED of walking into a social situation, and having everybody point and LAUGH. This was the basic premise of the movie "Carrie." A REVENGE FANTASY about a girl who is always an outcast. They take that to the extreme and make her the prom queen as a JOKE. SO THAT they can get her up on stage, in a position where she THINKS she's getting positive social validation, and THEN point and laugh. The revenge part comes when she uses telekinesis to kill everybody in spectacular fashion. As HIGHLY social creatures, we are INTENSIVELY sensitive to social signals. Both positive and negative. EVERYTHING WE DO, on some level is to hopefully GET positive signals. And to hopefully AVOID negative signals. This is also true when we are buying things. We subconsciously (and often consciously) put things through the social filter. Many times are DRIVEN by social filters, as in the case of social proof. We want to do things BECAUSE many others are doing them. Those with social anxiety have an overwhelming negative feeling associated with social situations. Those with social confidence have an overwhelming positive feeling associated with social situations. HOW a social group will respond colors pretty much ALL of our decisions. Which means you can leverage those for massive success. For example, if you are selling something, you can covertly ALLUDE to how much POSITIVE social recognition the customer will get. You'll find this idea embedded in tons of advertising. You can also learn how to do this conversationally. It's VERY EASY, and very effective. Which means you can use these deep and powerful triggers to get anybody to do anything. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/get-anybody/

  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug15Post.mp4 Cialdini laws can be found everywhere. These are very much like biases, in that you can see them in others, but it's very hard to see them in ourselves. For example, social proof, authority, and commitment and consistency are three of Cialdini's laws. And these three ideas are behind most beliefs in our brain. Most of us NEVER take the time to consider any of our most closely held ideas. Humans didn't evolve by being slow thinking logicians. Humans evolved by thinking quickly. As a means to an end. The END was not "truth." The END was safety, food, sex, social status, etc. Advertisers know all about Cialdini laws. Even before Cialdini showed up. Social proof, authority, scarcity, commitment and consistency, you'll find these in all things sold. But since they operate BENEATH conscious awareness, we can ONLY see them in other people. We are not robots, we are not Vulcans. We are ILLOGICALLY thinking, emotionally driven humans. And we very much NEED to believe we are logical. Normally, this isn't a problem. Normally, this is a BENEFIT. If you had to logically prove everything, not only would be you lonely, but you'd be EXTREMELY depressed. Unless you are hard core scientist who NEVER leaves the lab, (and is married to a robot sex doll), being illogical and emotional is WHO WE ARE. The problem comes when we try and PERSUADE others. We tend to make decisions emotionally. Based largely on Cialdini laws. But THEN, because we have a need to BELIEVE that we are logical and rational, even when we aren't, we come up with a logical sounding reason WHY we did what we just did. When we only tell ourselves these reasons, that's PERFECT. But if we use these SAME REASONS to try and influence others, it won't work. Since they aren't the REAL reasons. Luckily, there is a way to temporarily SHUT DOWN this post logic imagination. Which is essentially an ego protection tool. Once shut off (temporarily) you can talk to others to BUILD up their deep desire. The STRONGER their desire is, the more they'll enjoy talking to you. The more they'll be ATTRACTED to the things you are talking about. The more they'll want to DO THEM. The more they'll want to DO YOU, but you gotta be careful. Because this works VERY QUICKLY, and very strongly, the LAST thing you want is somebody you DON'T KNOW being super attracted to you. So go slow, and you'll be fine.

  17. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug14Post.mp4 Being assertive is difficult. Very few people are naturally assertive. Even people who are considered assertive are really aggressive. To be truly assertive means to speak your truth without any emotional energy. The idea is you say what's on your mind, and accept ANY response from the other person. To be assertive means that you CANNOT change the thinking or behaviors or ideas of the other person. Theoretically, this is the BEST way to communicate. To effectively speak your truth. Clearly state your boundaries, your intentions and desires. Accept the people that respect you. Disqualify the people that don't. However, there is a HUGE difference between theory and reality. In THEORY we only need to eat 2200 calories a day. In THEORY we should be getting 8 hours of sleep a night. Theories don't help much. Because WE live in reality. And the reality about asking for what you want is it's HARD. Most people suck at it. Most people are timid when asking for more water at a restaurant. Walk up to an attractive person and "state our truth?" Please! "Hi, I just wanted to tell you that I think you're very attractive and I would very much enjoy having sex with you." In THEORY, that's all you need. But in reality? You'd get punched in the FACE! Clearly, we need another plan. A better plan. An easier plan. Sure, you COULD approach ten people a day, until you build up some confidence. But what if you get punched ten times a day, in the FACE?! You could find a therapist that would help you get to your deeper issues. Heal your inner child. Connect with your higher power. Ain't nobody got time that! We want results, we want them quick. AND we are lazy, and impatient. Luckily, there is a solution. A set of simple questions you can ask. Questions that are easy to answer. Questions that don't make it seem like you are trying to GET something. Questions that are all about THEM. NEVER about you. Questions that will build up their desire. So strongly, they'll start to see YOU through that desire. Which means everything will be THEIR idea. And since you NEVER need ANY kind of close, or speak any kind of "truth," you'll never feel even a HINT of anxiety. Nor will there ever be any rejection. This does require you DO a couple of things. But they are NOT things that create any anxiety or invite any rejection. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/get-anybody/

  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug13Post.mp4 I have very vague memories of my first understandings of money. I was a kid, and my younger sister was asking my mom why we couldn't buy stuff. My younger sister thought all you needed to do was write a check and the people at the store would give you stuff. I remember knowing that's not how stuff worked. There was a famous economist who lived back in the 1800's. He had a saying that it's not what you see, it's what you don't see. Meaning if you don't use very much brainpower, all you will see is A happening and B happening. But what you don't see is what happens later. Or what happened before. Physicists are famous for making some very crazy assumptions. But they do so to FIRST understand the most basic ideas, and then slowly get bigger and bigger. This is why in high school physics they talk about only two dimensions and no friction. Two dimensions means you don't have to worry about trigonometry. No friction means you don't have to worry about calculus. You can understand the basic concepts with simple algebra. But if you keep studying, things start to get VERY complicated. Most people stay way too long on the sidelines of life. Waiting for a guaranteed, step by step system. Somebody to show them how it's done. We've all be brainwashed by the horrors of mass education to fear failure. Most of our experiences with failure involves public ridicule. We get called on in school, give the wrong answer and feel terrible. Ever since birth, our brains are filled with false ideas that make us much better cogs in a huge machine. A lot of people tend to feel "victimized" for being lied to. There's a whole lot of different red pill ideas that describe this. The red pill is allegedly some heroic stance against a system of corruption and deceit. That you finally pull back the curtain and see how things REALLY are. This is only part of the story. The other part is there IS a reality out there. And whether you get in the game or not is YOUR choice. Sure, you may have had your head crammed with false ideas to keep you OUT of the game. But now what? If you are waiting for somebody to hold your hand and make it easy, you'll be waiting a long time. Since the dawn of time, the rules of life have been simple. You don't kill, you don't eat. You can only live so long by waiting. Get In The Game: http://mindpersuasion.com/watching-mind/

  21. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug12Post.mp4 I went to this goofy seminar a long time ago. I don't remember what the purpose was. But I do remember one exercise. There was a small star inside another bigger star. And you had the trace another star between the two. But you had to do it while watching ONLY the tip of your pencil in the mirror. It was nearly impossible with all the angles. Every time you thought you'd go one way, the pencil would end up going the other. In plenty of movies that have fight scenes inside houses of mirrors. The most famous being a Bruce Lee Movie. A common scene is the good guy will be wandering around, his gun ready. Then he sees the bad guy, shoots him, only to find it's a reflection. This happens in life quite a bit. It's based on how we externalize many of our problems. This is VERY HARD to see from inside your brain. It's VERY EASY to see in others. Which itself is kind of a meta-externalizing. It's common to externalize negative traits on others that we refuse to acknowledge within ourselves. Gone unchecked, it's like living in a house of mirrors. Many things that are wrong are thought to be OUT THERE. A common structure in many problems is the "world is broken" structure. Or the "world is rigged" structure. Add in some confirmation bias, and it's even MORE difficult to get to the bottom of things. Add in a bunch of social proof, plenty of folks who have similarly structured problems, and you got a conspiracy. Even WORSE is when there is actually EVIDENCE that the world IS rigged. That the world IS broken. That is not helpful. Because if you are NOT getting what you want FROM the world, there is only one LEGIMATE way to respond. To CHANGE your behaviors to get something different. Something better. This requires that you figure out WHICH parts are REALLY broken, and which parts you are EXTERNALIZING. Once you acknowledge the parts that you are externalizing, your natural, "trial and error" learning mechanism will kick in. This is tough to do ONLY by thinking. You've got to get the ideas OUT of your head and on paper. So you can look at those ideas as OBJECTIVE concepts. This takes time and introspection. Two things people don't have much patience with. We want things quick. We want things easy. And we want things GIVEN to us from OUTSIDE ourselves. But if you CAN manage to start looking at your ideas and strategies objectively, you can start getting much better stuff. While everybody else is still waiting for a free ride.

  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug11Post.mp4 An ideal role model for becoming an effective public speaker is Marcus Aurelius. He was a famous orator and Roman emperor. But he's not a good role model because of his success. He's a role model because of how he achieved his success. When he was young, he had a speech impediment. Today, that's enough to destroy your self-confidence for life. Imagine how it must have been back in the Roman times. But that didn't stop young Marcus. Not one bit. He spent the days of his youth down at the beach. Not wishing things were better. Not waiting for somebody to come and fix his problems. Not praying to the gods to intercede in his behalf. He spent his days screaming at the ocean. Not in anger, or frustration. But in practice. He would fill his mouth with stones. And yell. In his mind, it was him vs. the sound of the ocean. He was PRACTICING. He was building up ability to speak loudly and confidently. And by filling his mouth with rocks, he was CONSCIOUSLY training his mouth. His lips and his tongue and his teeth. By the time he was a young adult, he had the confidence, the logic, and the articulation to move large crowds. A far cry from being a kid that talked funny. Later, as a successful statesman and politician, he was a prolific writer. His most famous book is still read today. Meditations. One vital line in there speaks great truth to human nature: "Everything is opinion." This is very similar to something Socrates discovered. Socrates discovered that nothing is true. And he made his career by proving nobody around him REALLY knew anything. This got him killed. Marcus had the same realization. But instead of using it as buzz kill skill, he did the opposite. Socrates had the notion that he would walk around and PROVE that everybody was wrong. Maybe he thought that would get him laid. Maybe he thought that would gain him some respect. It did make him famous. But only after he was killed. Marcus, on the other hand, took that same idea and leveraged for MASSIVE power while he was alive. If you KNOW that ALL the ideas that exist in other people's brains are NOT TRUE, there are two ways to respond. You can prove they aren't true, like Socrates. Or you can make YOUR ideas more compelling, like Marcus. The choice is yours. Which will you do? Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/watching-mind/

  25. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug10Post.mp4 I remember a long, long time ago, when I was a kid. It was Christmas and we were opening presents. I bought my grandma something, I'm not sure. She opened it, looked it, smiled and said thanks. Then she asked me what it was. I had no idea, so I shrugged my shoulders. Most people have PC's. And we use them for tons of different reasons. Watching movies, playing video games, chatting and emailing with friends, writing novels, etc. A PC is something that satisfies TONS of different uses. So it would be silly to ask, "What's a PC for?" Or, "What is the purpose of PC?" Even sillier would be asking for the purpose of your toaster. Nobody lies awake at night wondering if they are using their toaster correctly. From a structural perspective, our mind-body system is a tool, just like a PC. Most of us wonder about our "purpose." My grandma asked me what the gift was, since I bought it for her. This would be logical. But we tend to ask the "life purpose" of other people. That would be like a toaster asking another toaster what a toaster is supposed to be doing. One way to figure out our purpose would be to look at all the things we can DO. And figure out how to MAXIMIZE our use. For example, you COULD use your toaster to warm up a frozen pizza. Put the frozen pizza on top, and then hit the toaster button. Kind of silly, but it would sort of work. But it would be significantly UNDER-UTILIZING the toaster's potential. Or maybe you could put the toaster on the floor, under your desk during winter. To keep your feet warm. But you'd have to keep reaching down every couple minutes to push down the toast button. It would work, but it would under-utilize its capacity. Most people use our mind-body system like that. As a passive device. To let others tell us what to do. Especially when it comes to our brains. Our brains are INSANELY powerful. Capable of holding TONS more information that we think. Yet how do most of us use our brains? We OUTSOURCE our thinking whenever we can. Other people. TV, movies, etc. One way we CAN use our brains is as "new instinct generators." To train in new skills to the level of unconscious competence. Sure, this takes time, and it's not fun. But what if you developed money making skills? Or persuasion skills? Or romance creation skills? All to the point of NEW INSTINCTS, so you could do those things naturally, without thinking?
