The Amygdala Prison: Women, Self-awareness and SJP

'Absolutely indistinguishable'... 'She looks even better now than she did at 22!'... Yeah, right.

I apologize for not writing more regularly, but the time has been well-spent on thinking and thus not wasted. I want to move beyond the raw ideas of the Anglobitch Thesis (which are now quite well-known and accepted) to a new position where we can create a new standard of discourse. It is like climbing a ladder to a new level, then throwing the ladder away. Now, let's see if I can make up for lost time...

It is common currency in Male Studies that women in general suffer from a crushing lack of self-awareness. This is why women delude themselves into thinking that their sexual allure is irrelevant to their status. They truly believe that they appear in films or acquire unmerited promotions because of innate ability or talent. Let's be frank, if Angelina Jolie or Cheryl Cole were tubby 55 year olds would they be in films or on TV? The question answers itself.

Of course, this complex pattern of female self-delusion works at many levels. Secretly knowing that their sole bargaining chip in the game of life is sexual allure, women develope multiple layers of self-delusion to disguise its loss or absence. Indeed, feminism itself is merely another manifestation of this, in that it pretends female 'achievement' rests on other factors than sexual power over men (intellect, creativity and so forth). However, a cursory glance at the female faces in the media shows only young, pretty ones, completely refuting all such claims. Significantly, once women reach 28 their sexual status falls rapidly and new survival themes emerge - 'I'm everybody's friend!' 'I'm the Earth Mother!' 'I'm a feminist!' 'I'm making jewelry from coke cans!'

Of course, all these desperate personas are lies and self-delusions. This may be adduced from the fact that young, attractive women NEVER scrabble for such personas, since their sex-appeal to powerful males obviates the need for subterfuge. The deeper question asks itself: WHY are women so self-deluded? The answer lies most probably in brain structure. Let's take a look at the brain, especially a portion of it called the amygdala:

In the female brain, the amygdala - a small part of the limbic system associated with instinctive responses to events - is relatively smaller in relation to the cortex. In the pan-Anglosphere matriarchies, this is seen as beneficial, since the puritanical, denatured Anglo-Saxon nations fear ‘instinct’ – just as they fear virility, erotic prowess and maleness itself. The well-recognised fact that the average male IQ is marginally higher than the female instantly refutes any assumption that a large amydgala impairs intellectual function, however.

In truth, the miniscule female amygdala has various pernicious effects - blunting sexual response, stunting individuality and rendering women more pliant to social manipulation. In sum, it makes women less self-aware than men – and infinitely more prone to self-delusion.

In his classic text The Great Sex Divide, Professor Glenn Wilson cites compelling evidence that females try harder in tests when being observed, while observation makes no difference to male performance. In short, the healthy male is a free, autonomous agent, while the female is forever bound within social expectation. And we see this difference reflected everywhere – all trail-blazers and innovators in every sphere are men – partly because males dominate the outer reaches of any bell curve distribution, but mainly because the huge male amygdala liberates men from conforming to petty convention (this is also what American PUAs call 'alpha' behaviour. If anyone ever asks you, a large amygdala = Alpha).

The female's 'dwarf amygdala' also explains why women are typically small-minded and inexorably drawn to authoritarian figures and institutions, including Anglo-American feminism (it is notable that unmanly men show similar conformist tendencies). There are no female Picassos, Isaac Newtons or Bobby Fischers because the puny female amygdala keeps women chained to mundane convention.

Because women lack autonomous inward-direction, they are prone to take received opinion as immutable fact – in short, they lack true self-awareness. This is most perfectly expressed amongst teenage girls – mere programmed jackasses mindlessly repeating whatever inane fad the electronic media feeds them. Even when females reach nominal ‘adulthood’, their attention shifts to the narcissistic, delusional trash pumped out by the NAMWO media – Cosmo, Soap Operas, celebrity magazines, Sex and the City, and a host of similar materials. These items successfully present fairy tales as reality because women – lacking inward-direction and alienated from instinct – simply cannot ‘measure’ reality. The well-attested medical fact that most women who claim to ejaculate are in fact merely incontinent underlines this tragic tendency - women cannot even test the truth of their own bodies, let alone complex media artifacts.

Female self-delusion finds particularly amusing expression whenever women see pictures of ageing female 'singers' and 'actresses'. They invariably say things like,

'She's just as beautiful now as she was when she was 18!'
'She's just as sexy as ever!'

Of course, the female concerned is invariably a hideous old hag, living off distant public memories of her youth and beauty. Brigitte Bardot is a perfect example. Were it not for her peerless prime, she would simply never appear in the media - indeed, someone that repulsive would probably be banned from public life, period. However, recent photos of her haggard older self always elicit an 'oh, she's still so beautiful!' chorus from sundry females, in preposterous denial of the hard physical facts.

It’s time to be topical. With Sex and the City predestined to be one of this summer’s blockbuster movies, we will surely see the same process at work. Anglo-American females will fool themselves that normal, healthy males find women like Sarah Jessica Parker – horsey, irritating and old – as paragons of beauty, in the face of all all objective evidence. Armed with our knowledge of amygdala ratios, we now know why they persist in these ridiculous fantasies.

Dorsai Game: a New Mating Strategy for Anglo-American men.

Gordon R Dickson's Dorsai novels present some interesting ideas of great value to Anglo-American men looking to leave the Anglosphere for more equitable climes (i.e. as far from the Anglobitch as humanly possible), or at least seeking normal relationships. The emerging discipline of evolutionary psychiatry casts an intriguing perspective on these books, and offers some profound insights for Anglo-American men wishing to wash their hands of the venomous Anglobitch.

In Dickson's remote future, different planets have genetically-distinct populations who specialize in different skill-sets. The Dorsai are warriors who hire out their military expertise to other planets at vast expense. Dorsai! the first book in the series outlines the adventures of one Donal Graham, a young Dorsai of great ability, among the planets of this loose economic federation. What is immediately apparent in the novel is his immediate and obvious attraction to women. Of course, he is a young, handsome warrior/near-thug, all qualities intrinsically appealing to women. However, another factor at work is his exotic foreignness. As an outsider among non-Dorsai, Donal carries an inherent mystique into every situation.

If we submit this trope to analysis from the standpoint of evolutionary psychiatry, it makes perfect sense. Initiated by British psychiatrists John Price and Anthony Stevens, evolutionary psychiatry is a relatively new discipline that argues many modern mental illnesses were actually adaptive in a hunter-gatherer context. One of their more interesting claims is that schizophrenia persists in modern populations because schizoid individuals (those most prone to schizophrenia) must have indirectly offered early human communities certain adaptive advantages. Their compelling argument claims that schizoid individuals would have prevented community overcrowding by becoming charismatic leaders and founding new communities. Interestingly, schizophrenia occurs in about one person in a hundred, which would have engendered community splits at beyond fifty individuals, about the right figure to prevent over-exploitation of natural resources and social calamity.

So far, so good. However, for the strategy to work effectively, the schizoid/sociopathic individual (if male) must have been able to woo sufficient women away from the main group to found a new community. This doubtless explains why women have retained a primordial attraction to sociopaths and psychotics - the Rosetta Stone of Game.

The case of Charles Manson is a good example of this psychotic 'wooing' process at work. Clearly a schizoid psychopath deeply alienated from mainstream society, he was quickly able to seduce a number of young, fertile women to his deranged 'cause'. Of course, we all know women are strongly attracted to such 'charismatic' psychotic male types - and evolutionary psychiatry begins to explain why.

Dorsai Game incorporates some of these concepts, permitting Anglo-American males to maximize their sexual success in settings beyond the Anglosphere. Essentially, the foreign traveller is an outsider in wahtever country he finds himself, and this 'outsider' status mimics the alienation of the psychotic, charismatic group splitter of ancient times, naturally attracting women. There is also the messianic frisson of being the wandering, foreign cult-founder come to found a new society.

With all this this evolutionary baggage lighting his way, the wandering Dorsai Gamester will find foreign women putty in his hands. Merely adopt a mysterious, eccentric air, and the women will flock to you. Consider also that non-Anglo women are generally free of the awful Pedestal Syndrome that makes Anglo women so insufferable, are generally thinner and more attractive, not to mention free of Anglo misandry, making the Dorsai Game Plan absolutely indispensable.

In short, travelling to foreign lands and courting their women is a vastly-advantageous option for nearly all Anglo-American men. What is the alternative? Remaining in misandrist matriarchies like Britain, Canada and the United States, where you have a 50% chance of losing 80% of your wealth in the more-than-likely event of divorce, and spending the remainder of your life in a trailer-park?

Besides, when a male travels abroad another biological factor comes into play. For most of history (and indeed, prehistory), a foreigner moving unmolested through any community would have been an elite alpha - a merchant, diplomat or military advisor like Donal Graham: in short, a wandering Dorsai. Hence, just by being a foreigner, you raise your sexual status exponentially. This is especially true for Americans, since America is the world's most glamorised and powerful nation. While American women infused with Anglobitch feminism despise American men, foreign women will see you as a wandering elite knight swathed in exotic radiance. Carl Jung's studies of the animus - the template of male attraction embedded in the female mind - correspond closely to the Dorsai Game concept, in that the animus is usually a wanderer from some foreign, distant city, come to sweep the female away into a new world. Valentino's character in the Sheik also embodies the principles of Dorsai Game - a sociopathic, schizoid foreigner of high social standing, indifferent to Anglo-American mores.

By nature, men must have strong inducements to marry, and a fifty percent chance of losing 80% of your personal wealth is hardly a strong inducement - not when American males can simply jet down to Mexico, Venezuela or Puerto Rico to enjoy a nubile string of Latin lovelies. Moreover, most Anglo-American women are rampant narcissists armed with wholly unrepresentative expectations of life, work, relationships (and pretty much everything else), rendering marriage even more absurd. Armed with the principles of Dorsai Game, and knowing his true power and mystique in situations outside the Anglosphere, the Anglo-American male is now primed to avoid these pitfalls and exploit the unique Game opportunities afforded by exotic destinations.
