HARD-WIRED FOR DECEPTION complete picture/story brain bias

For many citizens, the complete stories of religion, superstition, and conspiracy theories seem to be holding sway over the incomplete stories of science. Science stories will always be incomplete and often tediously complex. Our brains are much more predisposed to completed stories than we are to science. Conspiracy theories satisfy the demand for a complete story. We are born genetically biased away from science. Much of science is counter to our intuition. The world does look flat, and, the Sun definitely looks like it moves across the sky. Our intuition, emotions, and immediate senses often lead us to false conclusions. Our monkey survival brain is never far from our immediate reaction to a problem.

Science is neither good nor bad. However, the label good can be used when science is used well by leaders and market forces, and the label bad can be used when science is used poorly by leaders and market forces.

A person is not drawn to science out of a desire for certainty but more so because they can problem-solve regardless of uncertainty. We need more Thatchers and Merkels inside the ranks of world leaders. Thatcher made the right decision on the  Ozone layer because she understood the science behind the problem. Unfortunately, when she opposed coal miners, she opposed them for political rather than scientific reasons. Merkel has moved with the same scientific force on climate change that Thatcher moved on the Ozone layer problem.  It is a great pity that none of today's leaders can match these women for scientific expertise.

 We, unfortunately, have to accept that Thatcher and Merkel are even further removed from the thinking of the average citizen.

It is doubtful that Homo sapiens have the level of brain function needed to cope with the demands of the AI world of the 21st century.  The human brain is basically the same as it was 70,000 years ago. A belief in witchcraft has existed much longer than a belief in science. In the 1990s Carl Sagan warned us that the world was moving away from science and closer to the thinking of earlier centuries.

Who are the "witches" of the 21st century in this post-truth age of unreason? Bill Gates, Elon Musk, George Soros, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Klaus Schwab, etc., are the new witches and there are many millions who want to destroy them.  Are Gates et al evil or just a  natural product of our present economic and market system? There are convincing claims for the latter in this video by Nick Hanauer: The dirty secret of capitalism -- and a new way forward.

https://www.ted.com/talks/nick_hanauer_the_dirty_secret_of_capitalism_and_a_new_


way_forward

Nick argues that we need a new economic system based on reciprocity and cooperation.  I would add that reciprocity and cooperation must also be extended to other species and Planet Earth. Every country's currency needs to be tied to the true currency of Planet Earth -  air, water, soil, biodiversity, and energy. This would make the massive accumulation of wealth by Gates and others not just unethical but ultimately a crime against humanity and Mother Nature.

Before I submit my promised evidence for the existence of Covid-19 or SARS-CoV-2 from the scientific literature I will start with much more basic information.

Virus basics are generally poorly understood. This link addresses the basics well.

https://askabiologist.asu.edu/virus

The 2003 outbreak of SARS-CoV-1 scared the living daylights out of most Asians. SARS-CoV-1 had almost no effect on Westerners other than fostering suspicion and resentment of Asians wearing masks.  SARS-CoV-1 prompted Singapore to be SARS-CoV-2 ready. It prepared for a pandemic better than any other country. For most of the time, Singapore has been ahead of the curve fighting SARS-CoV-2. Where is it now?

https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/health/no-good-options-going-forward-so-it-is-a-matter-of-choosing-the-least-bad-one

The Singapore lesson makes it clear that there will be no easy or comfortable solution to the Covid-19 pandemic.

And now for the advanced level links. I promised Imi evidence for the isolation of Covid-19 or SARS-CoV-2 from the scientific literature. (Sorry@paulfox1 - please pass on the one million dollars you owe me to CLM. I am sure John will welcome that contribution to CLM's running costs)

Links to the scientific literature showing evidence of isolation of SARS-CoV-2

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32237278/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7036342/

https://journals.asm.org/doi/10.1128/jvi.00543-20?permanently=true&

There is a repeated line from conspiracy theorists about there always being two sides to a story. In science, all scientific stories experience trial by ordeal in the scientific literature. Only the strongest scientific stories confirmed by repeated experimentation and analysis survive. Initially, there may be many sides to a scientific story but no matter how many sides there are to a scientific story, one thing does not change. The genuine contesting of science stories by scientists takes place in the scientific literature and never on a mickey mouse conspiracy website or in a newspaper. That will never change.

The title of this blog is HARD-WIRED FOR DECEPTION. Every Homo sapien is hard-wired for deception. It is not restricted to the religious, superstitious and conspiracy theorists. For those here who think they have all the tools they need to uncover deception, please think again. Focus on the weaknesses of your own thinking much more than the weaknesses of the thinking of others. Never forget that we are all hard-wired for deception.

This is a very well written and cohesive article that tells us, in the end, that we are all "hard wired for deception". But what does that phrase mean exactly. Does it mean we are hard wired to decieve others? Or are we hard wired to be deceived by others? Or does it mean we are hard wired to deceive ourselves?

It is stated that "The genuine contesting of science stories by scientists takes place in the scientific literature and never on a mickey mouse conspiracy website or in a newspaper. That will never change."

I believe that when it comes to true science that statement holds true. 

But the problem right now is that the world is being torn asunder not by what the true science is according to the real scientists, but by what the true science is purported to be by the corporate owners of Big Pharma and Big Medicine, by the corporate owners of Big Media, by the corporate owners of Big Teck, by the corporate owners of the Military Industrial Complex, by the deeply corrupted intelligence agencies, by the equally deeply corrupted politicians leading our governments, by the deeply corrupted administrations of our governments, by the deeply deeply brainwashed educators in our schools and universities, all of whom have financial skin in the game!   

Everyone on all sides of the matter claim they are the ones following the true science but in reality none of them know what the true science is, and none of them care.

@Melcyan, please explain why the FDA advisory committee, which I understand to be made up of high level scientists and medical experts, voted 13 to 3 in favor of recommending the Covid booster shot only for persons 65 years and older but were over ruled by the Director of the CDC who insisted the Booster be rolled out for everyone over the age of 12.

I've got to believe the FDA committee were basing their recommendation on what they consider to be the true science and you would expect the head of the CDC to also be following the true science as she understood it.

Call me a conspiracy theorist all you want. In the current world gone mad I will wear it as a badge of honor. IMHO, if push comes to shove, I would bet that the Director of the CDC is owned an operated by Big Pharma and/or the Democratic Party, and is up to her ass in dirty money.

To me it is apparent that the true science is not now and has never been what matters to the people in power as they have been deealing with this so called pandemic. Please convince me I am wrong.

If we got this right, most of the things that you are complaining about would disappear. Covid-19 is a moving target best handled by science experts, not politicians. However, it is very difficult to find leaders who will share or hand over the podium to others. It is even more difficult to find a politician who is willing to think beyond the next election. 

You asked what "Hard-wired for Deception" really means. Maybe the following will help (it also has a part 2 section)

@ja there you go again - 'begging the question'You said: '...but by what the true science is purported to be by the corporate owners of Big Pharma and Big Medicine'

We all have 'skin in the game'

The suspicious incredulous cynical skeptical and paranoid....  So many believe in gods and mythology.  Not I, but I am open to believe sensible words.  When Klaus Schwab speaks of a new world order, how can you not see that the opportunity exists, and that indeed governments could transform for the better?  Build houses. print and give the money, grow and give the food, isn't that a possibility?  So many of you believe in a god, absurd though that seems to me, why not in a better world!?  Embrace a preposterous god, embrace a better world!

You asked the questions "hard wired for deception". But what does that phrase mean exactly. (see last reply) Does it mean we are hard wired to decieve others? Or are we hard wired to be deceived by others? Or does it mean we are hard wired to deceive ourselves?

 

Answer -Yes, Yes, Yes

A full explanation may require another blog.

@melcyan

Thank you for the links! I really like one of them, the simplest one that talks about how viruses work in general. If you don't mind, I'd like to use that as a platform for my comment.

 

Try to imagine that science is a living entity. It produces scientific literature for its cells that are actually us, Melcyan, John, me, and the rest of us here on CLM, in order to function correctly. Everything works properly until the information flow to the cells has gotten infected by a virus one day. Unfortunately, you are the first casualties of the attack. However, you don't know it because the virus tricked you into believing that the knowledge you receive and share is still correct. It comes from the center of science. Therefore, it has to be true. Now, John, Paul, Barry, me, and the rest of the conspiracy idiots are cells of the immune system and recognize the threat and trying to stop the virus from replication.

 

If you think changing the roles would work just the same, you would be mistaken. And here's why. We ask, just like John does in his comment, legitimate questions. What is scientific about this and that. We are aware of having problems. However, you don't seem to be. It is all normal for you to have people beaten, choked and shot at in the streets all over the world under the name of caring for their health. We are not tricked into believing in everything the scientific center tells us. We are not normal cells. However, you are, but you don't know it because you're infected.

 

Regarding the isolation. Let's say it's true that there are many isolated Covid-19 specimens worldwide, which at once raises two questions. First, why didn't scientists adjust the PCR test cycles accordingly to separate Covid from the common flu and simple cold and have an accurate count on Covid infected? And second, why did they lower the cycle to under thirty when the vaccinations started?

@Imi5922

You asked two questions First, why didn't scientists adjust the PCR test cycles accordingly to separate Covid from the common flu and simple cold and have an accurate count on Covid infected? And second, why did they lower the cycle to under thirty when the vaccinations started?     

 

My immediate response is that these questions mean nothing to me. I googled them and got hit by a barrage of conspiracy sites with zero references to the scientific literature. So you need to give me some information that is linked to the scientific literature before I can respond. That is something that I have never seen a conspiracy site do (cherry-picking does not count), so I don't like your chances of finding scientific literature links for your questions.

@melcyan - I don't pretend to know enough to say with confidence that the covid virus hasn't been isolated. But the people in this video that was released Sept. 29, 2021 (yesterday) on Bitchute seem to know enough to say it with confidence.

Regarding "we need a new economic system based on reciprocity and cooperation..."

We in the middle class all (well almost all) wish to have a world that is fair and brings everyone into a position of having individual freedom while enjoying a good and happy life. But most of us are not so gullible as to think we will ever have such a life by counting on the economic and political elite to let it happen. The "ruling class" will never volunteer to stop being the ruling class because they don't give a rats ass whether we have individual freedom or good and happy lives.

Your proposed economic system above sounds like the opening line of a socialist manifesto. Lovely, lovely words but no hint that you understand how the world really operates and who is really in charge. How's that whimsical naivete working out for you in Australia today?

But here is a good sign that some people in Australia are breaking out and might be able to turn things around. Maybe you've already seen this but it was good news to me when someone sent it to me this morning:

For anyone who can't access it on Facebook you can watch it on Bitchute here:

That's the best news I've heard out of OZ in a long time.

@oldghost - please see my comment above to Melcyan. Your steadfast belief in the goodness of the Global Elite (Bill Gates for example) and their minions, such as Klaus Schwab, and their plan to deliver to us a "better world", is so brain dead that you make Melcyan seem like a conspiratorial cynic by comparison.

#2021-10-01 06:09:24 by melcyan @melcyan

@JohnAbbot

There is so much to correct to in your last comment to me. At the moment, I only have time to respond to the bitchute post by Max Igan  

https://www.bitchute.com/video/3IdOA5UIKtCy/

The key error in her words is that the Fair Work Commission report does not oppose mandatory vaccinations for all health care workers. It only opposes mandatory vaccination for ALL workers.

@JohnAbbot

about https://www.bitchute.com/video/r8rH2EoFqx7j/

These people are ra,ra,rah conspiracy theorists. Listening to them is like listening to words from opposing ra,ra,rah football supporters. Arguments between football team supporters are tribal. They don't warrant much analysis, although an anthropologist may disagree. They may be doctors, lawyers or Nobel prizes winners but when they don their conspiracy theory tribal colours (any position having zero connection to the scientific literature) the value of their words about science is about as accurate as an opposing football supporter's judgement on the legality of my parent's marriage. You want to dress me up as a ra,ra,rah socialist so that you can go to your 'liberty" kitbag to unload a bag full of anti-socialist ra,ra,rah. 

 

Tribal behaviour is gullible behaviour!

 

This blog is an attempt to dislodge people from a ra,ra,rah reactive tribal dialogue to a critical thinking dialogue, from fast thinking to slow thinking, from immediate monkey survival responses to higher human long term responses. Fight or flight responses do not serve us well in the 21st century. We have a very limited time to get our thinking right. Some may want to focus on Jews, some on an evil cabal, some on God. If we want to have a future on planet Earth for our grand-children and their grand-children and their grand-children, we have to change our thinking NOW. Climate Change is spelt out in full detail in the scientific literature. Without question it is real. It has been proven beyond doubt for many decades. We cannot delay action any longer.
