Pattern recognition is undoubtedly one of the marquee attributes of intelligence. Needless to say the STEM fields are all about pattern recognition, whether its predicting what one plus one will be or designing a spaceship to make it to Mars. However there is a dark side to the invaluable gift of intelligence. Something that hasn’t been widely discussed in society yet. The ability to synthesize information readily available on the internet to accomplish one’s goals has a very Machiavellian allure to it. All it takes is a person with sufficient intelligence and determination. The reason it is so effective is due to the very nature of reality. Natural selection itself is a method of finding the best genetic patterns to occupy a niche, meaning even human nature is subject to manipulation.
How ironic, the internet should have leveled the intellectual playing field by providing knowledge on every single topic to everyone, yet with the popularity of social media the masses still remain in the dark on things that have real life consequences. Thus the concept of pattern recognition comes full circle; those who recognize the distraction social media provides are usually the most intelligent. They will be the ones most likely to take advantage of what the internet truly has to offer, making themselves smarter and wiser in the process. In the same way our economic system is geared to make the rich richer, the internet has, for all intents and purposes, made the smart smarter.
Women, despite their uncanny ability to detect confidence in men, seem to ignore the obvious insecurity implied through social media attention whoring
Because it actually makes sense that if a man is swayed by something as arbitrary as a woman’s emotions or childish behavior, he’s unworthy of said woman
WHEN AN UNDERGRAD TELLS ME THE EQUIPMENT IS BROKEN
Listening to chris rock talk about the dissatisfaction of woman was borderline enlightening. When he says “Its all about her” and “Ive never seen a happy woman”, theres some deep ideas there. The harsh self-evaluating consciousness that woman experience life through isnt designed to enjoy any aspect of life. A single man is an extremely limited source of entertainment, and in the modern saga of life where matrimony is until death, a woman is going to question her actual satisfaction of life constantly. This psychological phenomenon of asking if ones decision is “right” is akin to torture and leaves one dissatisfied in even virtually perfect circumstances. As Kierkegaard said, “marry or not, youll regret it either way”. Essentially when choice is synthesized in life, regret is too. Its fascinating that we have cured innumerable diseases yet we cant overcome the most basic issues with democracy/ free will.
The effect ideas that disney princess movies have on women is one of the most disturbing to me. Not only do expectations of reality cause dissonance, (shouts to my nigga Seneca for calling out expectations as a source of unhappiness) the human race is left less rich because the fake delusions take the place of the real wealth; the intimate bond between two people.
Its ironic we deem ourselves unique as human beings. Its clear from the science of fractals and natural selection that we are literally designed to repeat, not to be different. No wonder 95% of genetic mutations arent advantageous
