More Evidence Conservatism Is About The Recognition Of Threats

Here magnets wipe out threat recognition upstream of the amygdala:

A joint team of American and British scientists have discovered that powerful magnetic pulses to the brain can temporarily change people’s feelings on a variety of subjects – from their belief in God, to their attitude to immigration.

The study, published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, saw scientists use a metal coil to create strong magnetic fields around certain parts of the brain…

However, researchers have now found that by targeting the part of the brain that deals with threats, they can temporarily change people’s beliefs and views…

The two were split into two groups – one, the control group, was given a sham dose of magnetism that was not strong enough to influence brain activity.

The other got a strong pulse of TMS that was strong enough to temporarily shut down their posterior medial frontal cortex (pMFC), a part of the brain that “plays a key role in both detecting discrepancies between desired and current conditions and adjusting subsequent behaviour to resolve such conflicts.”

In other words, this part of the brain processes threats and conflicts, and decides how to respond to them…

Amongst those who received the strong magnetic dose, 32.8 per cent fewer had decreased beliefs in God, angels and heaven compared to the control group who received no dose…

And 25.8 per cent more of those who had received TMS had a more positive response to the immigrant who had written a negative letter about their country.

In other words, those given the magnetic treatment were found to have decreased beliefs in God and more positive views towards immigrants.

This is basically shutting off the part of the brain that the amygdala is monitoring for any sign of calculations indicating that threats are present. So the amygdala is looking for measurements of threat, and there are none. I assume they are using the pMFC instead of the amygdala since the amygdala is deeper in the brain, and less able to be targeted precisely by magnetic fields.

What I love is how they act as if they are just “changing” people’s thought processes, rather than actually shutting off the brain and making people technically mentally retarded. Liberalism and leftism are due to non-functioning brains structures that have not developed sufficiently. Espousing a belief in that ideology is a clear sign of mental insufficiency.

There is a weird dystopian future, if they ever produce a headset designed to “enhance” brain function using magnetic fields, and somebody figures out how to hack it and do this. It plays with your head that you could lose a part of your brain and begin thinking like an SJW, but if you can come out of neurosurgery slurring your “R’s” due to brain damage, there is no reason you can’t be made mentally retarded by shutting off a part of your brain.

It is interesting that shutting down the part of the brain that recognizes reality also shuts down one’s belief in God. God is reality. You need to be disconnected from reality to assume this world is an accident, and there is nothing special about it.

Spread r/K Theory, because electronically-created zombies are now on the horizon

    God bless you AC.

    Its peculiar that threat recognition is associated with religiosity.

    Now I’m wondering to myself, ‘What will someone need to protect their brains from penetrating magnetic waves.’

    I speculate that leftists will start responding to R-K Selection theory, the amygdala, etc. by saying “it’s not that our amygdala is too small, it’s that yours is too big! An oversized amygdala causes you to become paranoid, hateful and hallucinatory!”…which is a difficult case to make when you’re constantly looking over your shoulder for RUSSIAN HACKERS and sheeit.

    AC, agnostics can be among those trying to apprehend reality, or we would not be reading here.

    • I was agnostic, and never thought that would or could change. You can see something which will forever alter your perceptions. I would have blown it off as hallucination, but two people having identical hallucinations at the same moment independently is highly improbable.

      I know because I was where you are that won’t change your grasp of reality, because there is no evidence for you. But keep an open mind, and you may one day be surprised with your own revelation.

      Religion caught on because enough trusted people got glimpses behind the curtain that others made the leap of faith themselves.

      Don’t believe me, but stay open to your own moment of realization.

        God enters individual realities at unexpected times, indeed, AC. Thanks for this post and for your work.

        Interesting you should say that. I have long thought that I would need a personal Revelation to shift my position. Of course, why would Anyone bother?

        However, when I was a boy growing up in the Scottish Borders, then out on the Muir (moor), or the hill, I would seem to see things. I would report them to my parents, to be told they were the ghosts of the Border Reivers. (I was a touch autistic, I think. I was ten before I learned to read.)

        Now semi-retired, I live in Italy. I seem to see things out of the corner of my eye again.

        A friend was tapped on the shoulder, and followed Jesus, with my support. Another friend, who confessed he had been a bad lad, was literally felled by a juicy slap to the head. He decided that God wanted a word…

    At the risk of sounding like a loon, the CIA figured this out 30 years ago in MK-ULTRA.

    A TMS “gun” device could also be made. Masquerading as a metal detector it would have interesting uses for anyone entering an Airport, Courthouse, Casino etc. Of course if lawyers ever found out- the company that made it would be sued into oblivion.

  9. Ummm.. and long term exposure to cell phones?

    My gut feelings… not good!

  10. I’m a nothing, a nobody, with only electrical engineering as official education, but even I can see that this

    Can only be due to a combination of Indoctrination and genetics!

    A truly special kind of Stupid!
