Theater Deconstructed by Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

untitled

Since the dawn of civilization their have been two instincts in man at war with one another.  Tyranny and Democracy.  One of the weapons or tools in that battle was the Theater but Theater predisposes itself to more good than harm precisely because of how it succeeds in creating value for the people witnessing it.

THEATER COMES FROM THE WORDS THEORY AND THEOS

I wish I had recorded the source, I thought it would be easy to find again but most etymologies don’t go back as far as they could.

The English word theory was derived from a technical term in philosophy in Ancient Greek. As an everyday word, theoriaθεωρία, meant “a looking at, viewing, beholding”, but in more technical contexts it came to refer to contemplative or speculative understandings of natural things, such as those of natural philosophers, as opposed to more practical ways of knowing things, like that of skilled orators or artisans.[8] The word has been in use in English since at least the late 16th century.[9]Modern uses of the word “theory” are derived from the original definition, but have taken on new shades of meaning, still based on the idea that a theory is a thoughtful and rational explanation of the general nature of things.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory#Ancient_uses

Theory is a contemplative and rational type of abstract or generalizing thinking, or the results of such thinking. Depending on the context, the results might for example include generalized explanations of how nature works. The word has its roots in ancient Greek, but in modern use it has taken on several different related meanings. A theory is not the same as a hypothesis. A theory provides an explanatory framework for some observation, and from the assumptions of the explanation follows a number of possible hypotheses that can be tested in order to provide support for, or challenge, the theory.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory#Ancient_uses

The word theos (θεός) of course being the Greek word for god and Enthusiasm, Enthusiasmos meaning literally “in God”.  

When I was creating Shared State Theory of Communication I realized that Theater had an uncanny ability to “communicate a state” which means a thought, a perspective, or an idea.  One is inclined to sympathize with the character portrayed as the protagonist.  Throughout the play of film one projects one’s sense of self onto the protagonist and this elicit’s emotions akin to those of the protagonist.  In a manner of speaking you get to walk in the shoes of another person or look through their eyes, a shared state.

PROPAGANDA OR EDUCATION

For those of you that are skeptical of my research, remember that Plato was a contemporary of Pythagorus and his math cults and Plato used the allegory of the cave.  The cave represented the Greek caste system.  The director (Philosopher King), could directly the form of the good.  The Guardians basically did what they were told and manipulated the images, and the slaves or non citizens that didn’t understand the ideals/idols of the culture were subjected to indoctrination in the form of observing the shadows on the wall of the theater.  It is also of interest that early Christians who were more like a Secret Society when they were created, and I believe Christianity traces it’s origins to the Pythagorean math cults, held their secret initiations in underground caves.  Ask yourself this, Why do some cultures have long, proud, traditions of art and literature and others do not?

This tool can either be used for propaganda purposes as it was by various tyrants and dictators or it can be used as an educational tool or even a political tool.  When of the great uses of the Civilized Western world is the use of Satire, more or less forbidden in the Tyrannical and Islamic countries where theater is used solely for the purpose of Propaganda.  Muslims have sentiments that excesses of laughter are a bad thing and that one should not mock or ridicule others, raping, torturing, removing limbs, and be-headings are more acceptable. . .

One would, most likely, first remember “Leni” Riefenstahl  and the Nazi propaganda machine.  Hitler used the Pollock joke as a form of psychological warfare to lower the self esteem of his opponents before he attacked Poland and killed off all of their intellectuals and artists.

SATIRE, SADISM, SATYRS, AND THE SABBATH

5462071296_9f770d54c3_z

When I was creating Organic Computer Theory which states that Neural Myelination passes onto our children in the form of cellular memory, I noticed how certain types of intelligences were more prevalent in certain groups of people.  For example the Jewish people have more comedians than almost any other group of people and far more female comedians than any other group of people.

I believe that they integrated the genes, which they considered valuable, of a group of transgressively sacral artists that were allowed to exist in early Greece for the purpose of keeping a certain denomination of Persians from feeling comfortable in their state.  Narcissistic Psychopaths don’t have a sense of humor about themselves and can’t stand being mocked.  Socrates, himself, exposed the “Pretenders to Wisdom” and his entourage used to eaves drop on his conversations and laugh as they saw through the illogic and unreason of the Pseudo Wise.

The name Cynic derives from Ancient Greek κυνικός (kynikos), meaning “dog-like”, and κύων (kyôn), meaning “dog” (genitivekynos).  It seems certain, however, that the word dog was also thrown at the first Cynics as an insult for their shameless rejection of conventional manners, and their decision to live on the streets. Diogenes, in particular, was referred to as the Dog,[5] a distinction he seems to have revelled in, stating that “other dogs bite their enemies, I bite my friends to save them.”[6]

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind,
The King (or Ruler) of Mankind,
The God (or judge) of Mankind,-
From the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his whisper),-
(The same) who whispers into the hearts of Mankind,-
Among Jinn and among men.

—Quran, sura 114 (Al-Nas), ayat 1–6[15]

In Islamic theology, Shaytan and his minions are “whisperers,” who whisper into the chests of men and women, urging them to commit sin. This is where the desire to sin comes from, according to Islam.

SECRET SOCIETIES

Jewish people were instructed to teach their children a craft so that they could be gainfully employed and provide for themselves wherever they went in the world.  Every major World Civilization has always had one thing in common, a large middle class, craftsmen could move horizontally and nomadicly with relative freedom.   The Jewish people were more or less nomads because they were constantly getting exiled.  As they moved about from here to there they were exposed to different ideas and philosophies.  Ideas can be a very dangerous thing.  Theater can basically frame a new form of the good, a new god.

idea (n.) Look up idea at Dictionary.comlate 14c., “archetype of a thing in the mind of God; Platonic `idea,'” from Latin idea “idea,” and in Platonic philosophy “archetype,” from Greek idea“ideal prototype,” literally “the look of a thing (as opposed to the reality); form; kind, sort, nature,” from idein “to see,” from PIE *wid-es-ya-, suffixed form of root *weid- “to see” (see vision). Sense of “result of thinking” first recorded 1640s.  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=idea&searchmode=none

At this particular moment in time the vast majority of Secret Society members are entertainers, both actors and musicians, they are the current “middle class” craftsmen…

Anatomy of the Female Mind

Image

When I say “the female brain” I am referring to several things: the emergent patterns in the way women as a group behave and make judgments, men that have been indoctrinated into the moral superiority of women, and in a conflict or a relationship the more irrational person or psychopathic person, male or female.

I will give a brief synopsis of my theory on “organic computers”, Neural Myelination is passed on through cellular memory, successful techniques are passed on by people that survived, patterns that were repeated are neural myelinated, this myelination influences the way we perceive reality and make judgments, our judgments were informed by the need to survive of our ancestors, those patterns were created in situations where survival was difficult, those instincts in modern times can be out of touch with reality.

Image

Now, Nature, for lack of a better word compartmentalized functions into male and female functions.  The consideration set of the female mind was edited to be concerned with and for babies, to presuppose an environment created for her in which she could indulge herself in the concern for which her brain was created.  In doing so the female brain makes certain presuppositions and ignores certain factors.  Those concerns which would not be conducive to taking care of a child but would be useful in providing a safe environment for woman and child were the business of the male mind.

Men and women are essentially the same, but compartmentalized by nature to deal with two different concerns and topics in two different ways.  I discovered this when creating my psycholinguistic philosophy.  My philosophy states.

“All narrative is doxography.”

Which seems innocuous at first but it is much deeper than one might expect.  All narrative is point of view, which means that everything said characterizes the person speaking *(assuming you know how I deconstruct narrative).  It wasn’t until I started studying Deborah Tannen‘s research on Male and Female communication patterns that I realized there were two completely different consciousnesses talking to one another.  She refers to this as complimentary schizmogenesis, I think it is more like two alien species that have different values and speak two different languages.

MOTHER

Babies start off as objects, entirely dependent on their mothers, incapable of doing anything for themselves.  They can’t defend themselves, think for themselves, or provide for themselves.  Babies communicate no analytical data and only emotional data, so from the perspective of the female mind emotions have to be valid.  That which has NO value or negative value in the heat of battle is valid to women.  Deborah Tannen refers to the interpretation of the emotional data by these little piss and shit factories as “ventriloquizing”.  Where the woman acts as the pythian oracle to interpret the omens sent to her through the medium of the squirming and whining of the child.

The mother protects the child’s psychosis and aberrations as well as the child.  She doesn’t care if the child is insane, or is capable of dealing with the world at large, that has never been a concern for her, she has a man for that.  She just wants the child to live and be as happy as possible.  This is why historically there was an age or a trial to mark the end of the authority of the mother and the beginning of the training and teaching that would make the child suitable for their transition to the world.

The mother manipulates the child to do things and to think that it was the child’s own idea.  Women use these exact same strategies on men if they can get away with it.  That is just how their brain works.  Women also keep on bringing the attention of the child back to a subject and then communicating emotional data to try to influence the way the child feels about the object.  When women do this to men it is called nagging and whining, or henpecking.  I call it jingling the keys.

SASD

Due to the feminine bias that is innate in the human organism, and due to the nature of superficial, aesthetic, snap decisions coming from the feminine part of the brain.  We judge the flow of negative emotional data as good or bad.  Negative emotional data flows from the child to the mom and from the mom to the dad.  We have a negative reaction to seeing the negative emotional data flowing in the opposite direction.  This patter in collective human judgments creates emergent properties that create disparate impact in favor of unreason, women, and children.  What looks good is not always good for you.

Allow me to illustrate in this way.  The Neural Myelination created over millions of years predisposes us to think that foods that are more densely packed with Macro nutrients are good for us, because that neural myelination was created in an environment in which survival was difficult.  The more packed with positive survival data it is, the better it tastes, to the point where the animal will never eat its natural diet if it has the option.  This makes the horse fat and sickly to the point of death.  Neural Myelination wasn’t created in an environment where survival was easy so our instincts are WRONG!  We as a society redouble our efforts in the wrong direction, compounding the problem because we are not aware of the organism through which we experience life and we are thinking sentimentally instead of analytically and logically.  If you don’t know the logical fallacies and the cognitive biases you can’t keep yourself from making them.

*It always annoys me when I tell people that everything said characterizes the person speaking and then they start trying to psychoanalyze me without knowing my method and having NO experience themselves, and never having thought about it until I brought the subject up.  What a bunch of idiots. 

SOCIOPATH/PSYCHOPATH DICHOTOMY

Image

In my system I have reappropriated the terms Psychopath and Sociopath in order to make them more clear.  If I may quote myself, “all narrative is doxography.”  all thought and speech is essentially narrative, and that narrative is strung together by a character or a story that the person is creating,  I feel that psychopaths and sociopaths have two completely different mind sets, which I will get into later, right now I would like to explain why I changed things around.

Trained psychologists have trouble distinguishing between psychopaths and sociopaths sometimes, a lot of this has to do with the way in which the terms were created.  As psychologists were discovering anti-social behavior, they began to flesh out the profile of psychopath, at some later point it became increasingly obvious that there was another type of anti-social behavior and the term sociopath was created and it started to come into use.  Sociopaths, if I understand correctly, are a sub-category of psychopaths, all aberrant behavior is psychotic, but we have two different personalities in psychopaths and sociopaths.  Also there seems to be some overlap between the two syndromes and I think I can clear that up although it is possible to have traits from both pathologies in the form of shadow syndromes.  I refer to process, patterns, or behaviors as being either a psychopathic process or a sociopathic process. 

Now, here is the psychopath checklist:

The two factors[edit source]

Factor 1: Interpersonal/Affective

Factor 2: Lifestyle/Antisocial

  • Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom
  • Parasitic lifestyle
  • Poor behavioral control
  • Lack of realistic long-term goals
  • Impulsiveness
  • Irresponsibility
  • Juvenile delinquency
  • Early behavior problems
  • Revocation of conditional release
  • Criminal versatility

Traits not correlated with either factor

 

Acquired behavioral sociopathy/sociological conditioning (Item 21: a newly identified trait i.e., a person relying on sociological strategies and tricks to deceive

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychopathy_Checklist#The_two_factors

This to me points to an over coddled child.  I see the over coddling mother and the child as part of the same mentality, they are comorbid with one another and the mother creates an environment where the child can practice being manipulative and lying and getting away with it.  The psychopaths need a group of people, a herd, in which to socially climb and manipulate others, reputation brokering, strategic communication, rhetoric, passive aggression, etc.

I found it interesting that in the movie 300, we see the Spartan boy surrounded by images of fire, and attacked by wild animals and having trouble sleeping because of stress, and below we have the sociopathic triad:

The triad links animal crueltyobsession with fire setting, and persistent bedwetting past the age of five to violent behaviors, particularly homicidal behavior.[2] However, other studies have not found statistically significant links between the triad and violent offenders.

 

Further studies have suggested that these behaviors are often the product of parental neglect, cruelty or trauma, and that such events in a person’s childhood can result in “homicidal proneness”.[3] However, the ‘triad’ concept as a particular combination of behaviors may not have any particular validity – it has been called an urban legend.[4]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macdonald_triad

From my perspective it is the neglected child, alone in nature and fending for himself that would experience those behaviors. This is more akin to a male mind, alone enduring the war of all against all. 

In the movie PREDATORS it seems to me that the writers were trying to show the difference between psychopaths and sociopaths.  All of the humans were super predators of one manner or another, the dentist was a cereal killer and he concealed this acting like he didn’t know why he was there.  With his own resources he would have been dead in 5 minutes on the planet, he needed to appeal to the sympathy of the others until he was in a place where he could opportunistically take advantage of the situation, and psychopaths are opportunistic.  They don’t fight you when you are strong, they fight you when you can’t defend yourself.  Everybody was more fit for survival than he was.  He concealed his narcissistic narrative and misrepresented himself bypassing everyone’s threat filter, he was a closeted narcissist.

SHARED STATE THEORY OF COMMUNICATION

Image

 

This is my personal philosophic calculus, so please do not plagiarize me.  If you are going to quote me give me credit.  It is hard enough in this psychopathic, social climby world to get any recognition.  

 

It is important to understand that two different people can be in relationship differently with the same state.  One person wants to experience it again, the other is avoiding it, still another hasn’t experienced it and they either desire it or want to avoid it.  

You communicate whatever state you are in.  If you feel thwarted you communicate thwartedness.  You want to share the state you are in.  You want to thwart others.  Cognitive psychology has linked the feeling of anger to feeling thwarted.  

Right now we are communicating through a shared states.  We were both schooled in the english language and the letter “A” means the same to me as it does to you more or less.  The word “language” means the same to you as it does to me, more or less.  

The problem with the “general will” of Jean Jacques Rousseau is the problem of being highly and equally educated.  For example if you had to serve two years in the military after high school as they do in Israel and Northern Europe, you would make decisions differently and that would be a state that you share with others that had the same experience of having to take PERSONAL responsibility for the defense of the nation.  So that feeling when everyone knows what is the right thing to do is possible, it is just not an experience we as americans have because of our specialization and our not being highly and equally educated we cannot unleash the “highest common good”. 

Physical proximity also might be a shared state in so far as you look from the same vantage point or you experienced the same event.  But the problem that we run into is that life has experiential data, which is to say that we tacitly interpret and judge reality in our experiencing of it.  

There is also something I realized with psychopaths in that they can communicate a state.  In order to do this you have to know how something will be interpreted so it deals in a way with hermeneutics.  Interestingly though, psychopaths don’t have to be particularly smart to do this.  They can see someone use a behavior and adopt that behavior.  Human beings are acquisitively mimetic.  I have heard people copy arguments that they personally did not understand because it sounded good and winsome.  They copy winning behavior.  This is known as strategic behavior. 

I studied trolls for years when I was creating my theories on psychology.  When I realized that my theories were descriptive and predictive I started using them prescriptively to manipulate the trolls I was trolling.  I psychologically destroyed them.  I trolled entire groups of trolls off the internet.  I realized that I could communicate to them I was in a state that I wasn’t in and as I got better I could communicate to them that I was a person that I am not.  

“All narrative is doxography.”  ~Joxua

That means that all narrative is point of view.  So I would say things that appeared to be coming from a person that I was not.  I would be in character, so to speak.

COMPLIMENTARY SCHIZMOGENESIS and the I, You, and We Narratives

Image

 

Deborah Tannen, the foremost expert on male/female communication rituals refers to arguments between men and women as complimentary schizmogenesis.  She is referring to a pattern that is created between tribes and nations where in their relationships they keep on repeating their party lines.  I wanted to give credit to her but I want to be clear that much of my stuff is my understanding and my personal philosophic calculus, so don’t think that all of what I am about to say is coming from her.  I like her and I think we would have a very interesting and edifying conversation.  However we disagree on many aspects.  Scientific materials are descriptive, prescriptive and predictive.  Linguistics chooses to focus on the descriptive part of language, the patterns and processes that occur within living languages without making judgments as to what is good and what is bad.  My focus is on how to make relationship work, how to create the most value in a relationship for the most people, so I do judge and I do prescribe.  

What happens in complimentary schizmogenesis is that each person retreats behind their shibboleths and they start repeating the behavior they believe to be dominant.  Each thinks they deserve to win or deserve their way because of either the masculine solution or the feminine solution.  Each has retreated from the We narrative into the I and you narratives. (my personal philosophic calculus).  She communicates femininity to him and he communicates masculinity back to her.  They do not compromise and create a we narrative.  In my SHARED STATE THEORY OF COMMUNICATION there are 4 shared states, communication, understanding, agreement, participation.  Proximity could be a shared state too and it is necessary for the other 4 more or less but it has less to do with communication.  

I believe in “equality under reason” which means that the most reasonable person gets their way or the most reasonable solution is created.  Everybody hearing that agrees with it, but women think that I am talking about pleasantness, and moral authority and they nod their head in agreement and the go,  “MMMMMHMMMMMM!”  and men do the same but they think I am talking about pragmatism and the end result.  

Women consistently use moral authority to discount, judge, block, criticize, prevent, and not participate with the masculine solution or desires.  When women do not want to participate they will leave the we narrative.  When they require or desire participation they will say “we need to do this.”  and when they refuse to participate they will communicate tautologies of non relationship, “you need to use your own resources”  or, ” I think everybody should do what they are comfortable doing.”
