  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar06Post.mp4 A lot of things are acquired tastes. Like coffee and alcohol, for example. When I was a kid, my parents would make coffee in the morning. I'd never tasted it, so all I knew was the smell. I imagined it would be delicious. But once I took a sip, it kind of ruined it. I had an imagination of what it MIGHT taste like, but that was shattered by the awful taste. But then, I grew up and got the world famous coffee buzz. That's when I associated the taste with the effect. Now, it tastes good. Really
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec21Post.mp4 A huge problem with us silly humans is misunderstanding cause and effect. Most of the time, we get it backwards. This is where we get anecdotes like putting the cart before the horse. For example, guys will see another guy talking to a girl. Both are obviously into each other. Body language is open. She's smiling and nodding while he's talking. She's laughing at his silly jokes. When he touches her on the arm, she doesn't recoil. Instead she leans into his touch, slightly, not too obvious. Wh
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept03Post.mp4 One of our biggest thinking problems is mistaking correlation and causation. You'll see this everywhere. What's particularly amusing is if you trace a purely scientific research study. First it's written purely by academics for academics. Generally published in some kind of academic journal. Which means it needs to be approved an editor of an academic journal. But academic types need to earn a living just like everybody else. And many of these live off grants. And grants come from politicians. Wh
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug26Post.mp4 One of the most powerful words is "because." A study demonstrated this. A woman was waiting in line at a copy machine. She asked if she could cut in line, and most people said no. Then she asked if she could cut in line BECAUSE her car was parked in a towing zone. Most people said yes. Then the researchers had her ask again, only this time, the reason made no sense. She asked if she could cut in line BECAUSE she had copies to make. And most people said yes. Researchers have also done plenty of stu
  5. 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 h
  6. 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 a

  9. One of the biggest problems we humans have is with logic. We believe that we think logically. We believe that we make decisions logically. But in reality, nearly all of our decisions are emotional. However, we also seem to have a need to remember our decisions as having logical and rational reasons behind them. And what is the structure of logic and reason? Cause and effect. If you've ever heard the phrase, "correlation doesn't imply causation," it's because we always confuse the two. Correlation is when two things are related. More shark attacks ha
  10. Many natural cycles are self-reinforcing. For example, if you are in a bad mood, you will display bad mood energy. This will come across how you walk, how you look at people, and the tone of your voice. This bad mood energy will drive subtle bad mood communication. Which will tend to elicit bad mood responses from others. Which will further maintain your bad mood. Good moods are the same, but opposite. You walk with good mood energy. Good mood posture, good mood eye contact, good mood tonality. This creates good feelings in others, which drives thei
  11. One of the most common, yet least understood idea is cause and effect. On a very basic, scientific level, it's not so clear. There is an idea of entropy, or "disorder" of any system. The second "law" of thermodynamics is that entropy will always increase. The reason "law" is in quotes is that second law of thermodynamics is not quite a law. It's not something that can be mathematically derived. It's just something they always see happening, and they assume always WILL happen. The idea that as "time" goes on, the "entropy" or disorder of a system will increase
  12. Once upon a time a bunch of marketing types were doing some experiments. They had a woman wait in line to make copies. And she asked people if she could cut in line. At first, she just said, "Hey, can I cut in line?" Most said, "Um, no." The next phase was to come up with a valid excuse. "Hey, because my car is parked in the red, can I cut in line?" Most people said, "Sure, ok." So far so good. But then it got kind of goofy. They tried different things AFTER the word, "because." Even this worked: "Can I cut in line, because I have to
