  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan17Post.mp4 Recently, or perhaps not so recently, there have been a lot of "concern" with AI. That one day soon, robots will take over. Of course, this is nothing new. One of the episodes of the Twilight Zone was some poor guy who put himself out of a job by too much automation. Every since the Industrial Revolution, people have been worried about being replaced by robots. So, perhaps the latest fears of super intelligent AI somehow deciding we humans are obsolete is just another version of that. But consider that humans have something AI will never have. This is easy to understand from an evolutionary perspective. Evolution is based on natural selection. Natural selection is essentially a competition. A fight between and among species, sometimes called "survival of the fittest." But even that label is a bit too understated. Whoever can survive gets to live. Whoever loses, loses. A common misunderstanding is that evolution has some specific goal it is pointing toward. Something "better" or more efficient. It's nice to think that, but it might not be true. The environment evolves naturally. Sometimes heavily influenced by the living creatures, sometimes not. Whoever can "keep up," gets to stay alive. Whoever doesn't, doesn't. What does "keep up" mean, exactly? Getting enough food to stay alive. Having enough sex and making enough copies. Sounds simple, right? Get enough to eat, and get laid a few times? But at the same time, 99% of all living things eventually didn't make the cut. They got eliminated. Thanks for playing. They couldn't get enough to eat, and couldn't have enough sex. One way to think about the slowly evolving environment, and all the living creatures trying desperately to keep us, is with the joke about the two guys hiking who see a bear. Two guys see a bear. One guy starts putting on his running shoes. Other guys says he's crazy since he can't outrun a bear. First guy says I don't need to outrun the bear, I just need to outrun you. This is natural selection in a nutshell. This is also survival within any society, based on any metric, in nutshell. This is why many people like the idea of magic and free stuff. Because at its heart, all life is essentially a competition. People don't like to compete. People like guaranteed incomes and participation trophies. What does this mean, for you, Dear Reader? Embrace the competition. Embrace your inner drive. Your human spirit. To get in the game. Not to play, not to have fun, but to win. Dominate: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug04Post.mp4 There are, have always been, and always will be "hacks." Ways to shortcut any type of system. You might even say trying to find "hacks" is a driving evolutionary force. Metaphorically, every advantage a new species gets is a kind of environmental hack. To get a leg up against the competition. One interesting theory uses this to explain why humans have such a high capacity of self-deception. Once upon a time, we were fairly simple creatures. We spent our lives living around everybody we knew. Nobody ever met a stranger. So the idea of lying to get any benefit didn't make sense. Then the population started getting bigger and bigger. And people started to run into strangers. The first "hack" was to lie and get a benefit. Those had the "liar instinct" did better than those that didn't. This makes sense, as plenty of animals survive by deception. But then a few people developed a defense against liars. Then THESE people had the upper hand. For a while. But then the liars got MORE effective at lying. Because when the lied the old way, there were not congruent. So the lie detectors could tell they were lying. But then the new liars figured out how to lie congruently. By FIRST lying to themselves. And these folks were the MOST effective. To have a subconscious intention AND a conscious intention. Maybe this is true, maybe it's not. But nature does tend to use whatever works. The problem with ideas like this is we are all pretty much brainwashed into thinking that things are they way certain people think they SHOULD be. Lying is bad. People SHOULDN'T lie. Therefore, in our past, nobody ever DID lie. At least not enough to make an evolutionary difference. Maybe the people in charge are worried that if they DID admit that lying provided an evolutionary benefit, we would ALL start to lie. And that wouldn't be acceptable. Because only the people in charge are allowed to lie! Perhaps we humans also have a "do as I say, not as I do" instinct. Since that seems to be a pretty common way of ruling. Ever since the dawn of time, there seems to always been TWO sets of rules. One for the dudes in charge. One for everybody else. It's common to get ANGRY at the way things are. At all the corruption. That only creates frustration. It might be a better strategy to understand HOW the human mind works. Since all this corruption is a function of the human brain. Once you understand how the mind works, then you can get in the game and get some. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/watching-mind/

  12. Most of Cialdini's laws of influence can be traced to our evolutionary past. The reason is that our brains are both EXTREMELY valuable, and EXTREMELY expensive. Every animal has it's own "unique selling point." Tigers have sharp claws and powerful digestive systems, so they can eat anything. Zebras have stripes so when they hang out together, they look like one enormous animal to predators. All animals and living things have evolved their own special set of skills. For us humans, it's our big brains. Our brains that can imagine things that don't exist, and figure out how to make them exist. All the other animals have to find things that exist, and eat it. We can imagine things, like tools and houses and transportation devices. Things that DON'T exist. And then through human communication, we can TALK ABOUT those things that don't exist. And work together in groups to MAKE THEM exist. No other animal can do this. This is why penguins and kangaroos can't invent telephones or microwavable burritos. But our big brain is INSANELY expensive. So big that we are born WAY BEFORE we are done cooking. A new humans is INCREDIBLY expensive in terms of time, effort, energy, etc. So nature did EVERYTHING it could to find as many shortcuts as it could in our brains. When you have a HUGE machine that is VERY VALUABLE, you need to make it as efficient as possible. Because all humans are LOCKED IN to the idea of a positive ROI. All animals MUST get enough calories to live. And they all must EXPEND calories to GET those calories. And since the brain burns a lot of calories, more calories per weight than any other organ, it NEEDS a lot of shortcuts. This is where ideas like social proof, authority, scarcity, etc. come from. These are external TRIGGERS that create shortcuts in thinking. When authority speaks, it's NATURAL to turn off your brains and be obedient. When social proof speaks (everybody is doing something) we turn off our brains and obey. When something is becoming SCARCE, we turn off our brains and WANT that thing MORE. These ancient survival instincts are VERY POWERFUL if you know how to use them. If you can apply them to any product or service, you will make MILLIONS. That's how MOST people think of these. But there is another way to apply these techniques. And they will be JUST as powerful. They will trigger others to TURN OFF THEIR THINKING. And WANT whatever you are applying these laws of influence to. Want that "thing" more than anything else. What "thing" can you apply these laws to? That "thing" most people never think about? YOURSELF. Learn how to do this, and build your world however you like. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/walk-away/
