Granularity

When something is down to small enough amounts it behaves unpredictably. The quintessential example is carbon clumps of mere hundreds of molecules that get buffeted around by water molecules like beach balls in the ocean. Fentanyl also acts unpredictability simply because due to its high potency very few molecules are needed

There is a Santa, now

We have trouble giving gifts due to brain limits. Here's how to overcome them. And for a limited time Santa will help. You can write to Santa and have the gifts delivered, but YOU need to supply the gift card money.

Gunslinger effect

The physicist Niels Bohr theorized that there are multiple neural pathways that control movement--cortical (thinking) and pre-cortical (reacting). The reacting is faster so Greebo drew first but Han shot first.. References at gunslinger.html

Corruption is Good

You see explicitly many places, and implicitly everywhere on the Right that corruption is good. The case has been made to increase efficiency. For this reason, in Republican governance, what is out front never matters as more as what is behind closed doors. The reasonable point is that people work better that way.

The Deutsch Effect

Professor Diana Deutsch has done pioneering work on the cognitive processing (or MIS-processing) of auditory input. One of many of her amazing findings that became eponymous was that words on repetitive hearing like with a stuck record can become perceived as music. She published in the 1990's BUT I tried out the top movie quote memes and 1) they all work and most spoken words DO NOT and 2) the background score is IN EXACT TUNE TO THE MELODY OF THE SPOKEN WORDS. I do not have an explanation of how that happens.

The DBP

>Minorities and women are put into positions that are engineered to fail The purpose is that the racism of those interacting or observing the DBP will tend to blame them and not hte company. The company doing this depends on racism. Examples include, many insurance companies have the DBP in a position in wich the company has set it up to not work and not give out money. The Federal probe of People violating College football rules demonstrates how the teams put particular assistant coaches into situations where they can go to jail and absolve the company/University. The Glass Cliff is an example of this where the DBP is the female CEO

True Love

True love isn't a moment. You have connections to someone both overa all possible pasts and all possible futures. Then, obviously, one can find the connections. First there are things everyone's got (need for food, housing, income) and then there are interests. Become an interesting person. Find out someone's interests. Inquire a lot. Visualize possible past connections and extension into the future. Enjoy..

Ugly truths are forgotten

We have an enormous bias against remembering when we were wrong, stupid, or bad. I think you can see that on the national and global stage better than in oneself. This precludes being able to get better over time
