Ah, whistleblowers. I’m 0 for 1 so far, due to the Sal Conte scandal. Let’s see if I can apply the lessons learned to today’s exercise, John Snowden.
They say that his PR is too smooth, that he is too calm, that he was coached, that he was provided the information and handled to release it, or else in on the whole thing.…

A brief refresher, and then some new points on power-leveling your life.
** How do we define life levels?
0 is too sick/dysfunctional to work or do anything much even personally productive
1 is some personal productivity, but not enough for any but the least intensive paid work
2 is ok ability for paid part time work
3 is good ability for part time work, ok-ish for full time.
4 is good ability for full time work
Levels 0-4 are pre-defined.…

Seth Roberts has been touting the impressive effects of percentile feedback on productivity. I concur. The problem is twofold:
1. What to measure?
2. How to adhere to measuring?
It is settled that we should track percentile improvement. The question is how.
Seth tracks time spent working on a key project. He tracks it with an R program that presents a nice graphical display.
There are some problems with this:
1. You have to be at the computer to input tracking data

Thus we shift to an anthropology founded upon the Edenic Multiple Intervention Theory, rather than solely upon Tex’s Edenic mythos. A fusion of Lloyd Pye and Tex Arcane, with a dash of Koanic anthropometry thrown in.
We must also alter our rating system, to reflect a generalized facial anthropometry.
Most features will be given a major and minor rating, on two axes:
Prosocial vs. Antisocial
Small group vs. Large group
Rarely, a feature will be given a third rating on this axis:

And be suitably suspicious of doctors bearing pharmaceuticals, in general:
The interesting thing is you can get similar (albeit much less dramatic) effects from eating wheat, sugar, and processed food. That’s why the first step on my powerleveling plan for those I counsel is to clean up the diet by going paleo.
As a dualist, I envision a biological brain with two inputs – biological and spiritual. Your spirit is tethered to your brain and affects it at some quantum-whatever level.…

First let’s define our objective:
Complete the critical path to the next level in the shortest possible time.
Towards the fulfillment of what set of interest do your levels progress? That is defined by your faction. Think World of Warcraft factions – orcs, elves, humans, etc:
- If you are a selfish bastard, you may have a faction of one. Simple enough.
- If you are an abstract selfless bastard like me, your faction is an ideological cause.…

I just had a blinding realization: the melons aren’t the problem.
Jim has identified the problem, the cause of leftward drift and the cycle of history described by Sir John Glubb:
The incarnation of evil, the defining example of collective evil
Instead of Nazism-discrimination being the incarnation of evil communism-covetousness should be the incarnation of evil.
The various communist democides should be described in the context of wanting to have what is someone else’s (envy and covetousness).

This post will explain how to enhance willpower and motivation by writing short words on the back of your hand, and making tally marks throughout the day.
On my left hand, I have written my long-term life purpose. This is a constant reminder of my purpose on Earth. It focuses and motivates throughout the day. Every activity must be connected to this purpose.
My left hand reads “Edengard”, which means I serve the interests of the Thal/original-Melon alliance.…

First, the problem. Moldbuggian Cliff’s Notes:
But this act of brutal Machiavellian thug politics, larded as usual with the most gushing of sentimental platitudes, is picayune next to the ordinary practice of democratic governments: to elect a new people by re-educating the children of the old. In the long run, power in a democracy belongs to its information organs: the press, the schools, and most of all the universities, who mint the thoughts that the others plant.

In my previous post, I criticized the positive thinking and subjective reality schools of thought.
There is always more advice on self-improvement. The trick is to apply the advice that best fits your situation.
I generally recommend the following sequence:
1. Basic health
3. Basic self-tracking
2. Basic cashflow
3. Basic social
4. Basic meditation
Lots of options.
If you are at Level 0 and biology is compromised, it is a bad idea to attempt positive thinking / subjective reality techniques.…

Reality is subjective! Mind over matter! Never quit! Never say die! Stay positive!
Ha very ha.
Volunteer at a nursing home or hospice. That is your endpoint. You are mulch.
The only question is how much screaming there’ll be inbetween.
Reality regulary takes people riding in their cars without a care in the world and shows them their insides for long minutes before they helplessly expire.
How people fail to respect reality is beyond me. I fear reality.…

For 3.5 years, I suffered and built systems to resist the harshness of my circumstances.
Finally, my efforts paid off. Via continuous improvement, meticulous record keeping, expansive reading, and endless self-experimentation, I drove my health above the “employable” threshold.
As they say, “Physician, heal thyself.” That is what I’ve done.
With the health bottleneck cleared, the other systems I’ve built are showing their mettle. Systems for info organization, meditation, and face reading have combined to produce outsized results.…

So apparently the magic phrase that instantly gets people to do tongues correctly is this:
“Can’t you just do it in your regular voice?”
Your regular voice is the one you use when talking to friends you’re comfortable with, ie not feeling awkward or stifled or nervous.
I don’t mean that God is just your buddy that you should feel totally comfortable around. But I do mean that you can speak to him in your regular voice without getting all dramatic about it.…

How to change levels – the fun part
Fuck it / Float it (bow) (levels)
Tongues connect God the Father (slide) (faith)
Voidbounded 3 seconds breath
Manifest His Will (Kingdom) (value)
Thumos (attn boredthrufeel) (noballs) (lekksuck/shamesod)
Revkinas flicker deeper (assume) (goodtime)
1. Extend the reviving hand of friendship
2. Build a tribe
3. Heal the sick

Before his fall, Adriano Leite Ribeiro was one of the top footballers in the world, making millions and playing for Inter Milan. He was brought down by a woman in 2009, and his career hasn’t recovered.
After his girlfriend Joana Machado broke up with him, Adriano spiraled into depression. He failed to show up in Italy to honor his Inter Milan contract, thus forfeiting his €400,000 monthly pay for the championship. Ouch.
What was Adriano’s mistake?…

This book contains two short stories, “Wardog’s Coin” and “Qalabi Dawn”. It’s well worth buying as an ebook. Spoilers ahead, so just buy it if you trust me.
As an amusing aside, I noticed two fellows from the Edenosphere were featured reviewers in the book’s front-matter. Apparently Neanderthals read books or something.
** Review of “Wardog’s Coin”
Overall, the story was great and stayed with me. The wargaming bones of the battle make it stick in memory with lucid clarity.…

In response to this:
Fuck hope. Hope is good in that it can allow you to be open to positivity and thus channel that positivity. But hope is also a fucker. Hope is a bunch of expectation that can leave you disappointed and future-focused rather than enjoying the present.
Persistence is the most important trait for anyone to have. To be persistent you need to be resilient. You can’t hit home runs every time you’re up to bat.

This fellow Muflax is quite genetically similar to me, although he has a handicap or two that I don’t, and I have one that he doesn’t. Here’s what he thinks about Edenism:
If you haven’t read fellow crazy-person Koanic Soul, I recommend you check him out because he might serve as a hint of what my writing would look like if I wouldn’t take great care to balance my ambiguity, enforce pragmatism and instead trusted my intuition.

Below is my reply to a Thal girl’s questions about how to implement the koans. I won’t post her original email.
I’m usually answering questions from dudes, so this gives me a chance to cover the other side – the traps someone with excess sensitivity falls into.
In her case she was trying too hard to be genuine and connect with people in a deep way, and then getting hurt. My reply:
Thanks for the kind words, I’m glad the koans have helped you.

Humility is the slow heartbeat pace of your tongues as you lay in bed, descending gradually into the void of unconsciousness. A prayer to the Ultimate as your finitude winks out.
Humility is the mortification of appetite. Eating a small amount when hungry, not animal gorging. Experiencing women as human beings, not merely outlets for release and dopamine spikes.
Humility is the ability to look into someone’s eyes without delusion or judgment, of self or other.…
