Helter Skelter Origin Story


Recommended Posts


Ever since I've been in high school, I've loved cycling.

When I was in college, whenever I had some spare time, I'd go riding up and down hills.

I liked riding up and down.

Riding up was kind of like hiking.

You keep grinding, and every once in a while you stop and look around and see how much higher you are.

But going down is a different kind of thrill.

A spending of carefully saved up potential energy.

The fastest I've ever coasted downhill was 53 miles per hour.

A perfect hill for coasting.

Steep, long, and then flat for at least half mile.

No intersections, no lights.

So the ONLY limitation was how long I could coast without feeling the need to put the breaks on.

It always reminded me of the song "Helter Skelter," by the Beatles.

Particularly the line:

"When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide, when I stop and I turn and I go for a ride..."

This is about a roller coaster called "Helter Skelter."

It's also considered to be the first "metal" song.

But riding down hills is inherently pleasing.

They've got these tours in place like Hawaii and other exotic vacation spots.

They drive up you to the top of a huge mountain.

Then you coast down on mountain bikes.

The bikes have governors on the brakes, so you don't go too fast.

So you can just relax, and coast, and enjoy the scenery.

We humans LOVE being "taken" on rides.

Physical rides.

Emotional rides.

This is why we love stories.

We love to FEEL the emotions without having to take any real risks.

Like riding down hill without needing to ride up.

But sitting and watching an emotional ride is one thing.

A fantastic movie or serial drama.

But participating is something else.

When you go out with your buddies for example.

And one unexpected good thing happens after another.

And everybody ends up happily ever after, if you catch my drift.

We love to fantasize the same way.

All of this is based on a kind of "pseudo logic" structure on our brains.

The more you think about this, the more you can understand just how enjoyable it is.

Thinking of happy thoughts naturally leads to happier thoughts.

Even random conversations with friends follow this kind of pseudo logic.

The more you participate in these conversations, the more fun they are.

The more fun they are, the more you can start to remember this, now.

And all those other times when you unexpectedly found yourself in a fantastic sequence of events and emotions.

Even better is when you understand this linguistic structure.

So you can be the one leading the conversation.

From one happy emotion to another.

Naturally, the more you lead the conversation, the more you lead the ideas in their brain.

The more you lead the ideas in their brain, the more you be able to lead their actions.

To any happy ending you like.
