Sexual Robots: Who Needs People?!

December 11, 2017

Sexual Robots: Who Needs People?!

Ok, this blog is just a “tease” for another more substantial blog that I am working on. This other “sexy” blog will appear within the next few days.

In the meantime, various rapidly developing media technologies and a myriad of other factors, including the meteoric growth of pornography industries around the world, has led to an amazing revolution in the realm of human sexual behavior.

Here is one stunning example of what I mean.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2017/12/03/the-woebot-will-see-you-now-the-rise-of-chatbot-therapy/?utm_term=.080bec7698b5

Of course we are now having our collective noses rubbed in a flood of other examples. Consider recent female allegations of sexual misbehavior by powerful men, for example.

I will have more to say on this particular social sexual revolution soon!

All We Need to Know: John Conyers III

December 8, 2017

All We Need to Know: John Conyers III

Disgraced sexual predator father, Congressman John Conyers, has endorsed his 27 year-old son, John Conyers III, to replace him in Congress.

Michiganders, the following video and newspaper article is all you need to know about John Conyers III.  Now you can vote for more governmental corruption and other ghetto-behavior shenanigans, or something better for America.

I am sorry for the following video reality therapy, including some very strong profanity and racist language…uttered by this young possible Federal Senate candidate. But, reality will set us free!

Also,  following New York Times article will document this young man’s very troubled love-life. Allegations and counter-allegations between Conyers III and his girlfriend, as to who did what to whom, could not be proven. 

The case was dismissed, But, as the old saying  goes, “It takes two to tango”!

Wake-Up Michigan…it is your call!

Who Are Real Fascists: Left or Right?

December 4, 2017

 Who Are Real Fascists: Left or Right?

Are you a Fascist? Do you even know?

Without a clear definition, based upon a history of the development of this political philosophy, you certainly will never know. 

Interestingly, the real origin and meaning of the terms Fascism and fascist have been purposefully hidden from easy inspection for what I consider the worst propagandistic reasons.

This term, obviously a pejorative one, is used by teens against their parents rules; as well as it is now commonly and indiscriminately used by adults against each other when they disagree about social, political and economic matters.

If I were to provide the hint that the violent leftist group ANTIFA (i.e., anti-fascism) takes its name from exactly this specific history, it would only confuse the matter. Don’t you find it confusing?

If you do, you may already know the real history of this modern political epithet.

I urge you to view the following video featuring America historian and patriot Dinesh D’Souza, author of high quality books and documentary videos.

I also highly recommend that you read his stunning new book entitled, The Big Lie

Now, please learn just who really are the Fascists among us!

Sanctuary Cities = American Mayhem!

Judge Jeanine tells us the truth about this self-destructive political evolution, trending toward a revolution.

If you have not seen this video, it is essential that you do. 

If you have seen it, see it again!

Two Basic Kinds of Behavior-2

December 2, 2017

Two Basic Kinds of Behavior-2

In my first blog about “Two Basic Kinds of Behavior”, I presented the following simple truth (spelled with a very small “t”. This is because science has a way of generating new conflicting truths (also spelled with a small “t”). As far as I know, there are still just two kinds of behavior. At least, this has been the common convention within the field of  Behavioral Psychology.

Behavioral psychology normally breaks actual observable responses/behaviors (observed in some empirical, i.e., measurable fashion) into classes of responses/behaviors that are learned through consequences and those learned via stimulus associations. The first class of behaviors are called Operants and the second class of behaviors are called Respondents.

I briefly explained these two basic classes of behavior in my first blog on this topic. You may wish to review it below. I believe this explanation is technically accurate, however it is an great over-simplification of the vast subject matter on this topic.

https://culturalsurvivalskills.me/2010/04/20/two-basic-kinds-of-behavior/

While I was a professor at Indiana University South Bend, I encountered introductory-level students who found it difficult to understand how the great complexity of human behavior could possibly be accounted for by only two classes of behavior.

I assured these students that my advanced classes about behavioral psychology would reveal a large number of  other biological, psychological factors and principles that can interact in complex ways with Operant and Respondent behaviors to form the stunning variety of human perceptions, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors that are observed around the world.

Part of my answer to introductory level students was to note that there are only 118 elements in the periodic, table of known elements, and only a portion of these elements combine in ways to make-up all earthly matter. Some have recently indicated there are 119 elements, with perhaps more yet to be discovered. It seems remarkable the so few elements could combine to make-up all matter in our world.

In comparison, recent discoveries by neuroscience have exponentially increased the complexity of the interacting determinants of Operant and Respondent behavior to unimaginable levels.

For many years, we have learned that computers contain bytes of information configured in 0’s and 1’s. Formerly, it was also though that something similar was operational in the way that the human brains store and utilize what they have learned throughout their lives.

The article at the end of this blog provides evidence that this “binary code in the brain” is an immense over-simplification. It is now estimated that our brains use at least 26 different codes to store what we learn. Even more astonishing is the estimate that the human brain is capable of storing as much information as is stored on the entire Internet.

The internet is estimated to contain about one petabyte, or about a quadrillion bytes of information.

Without question, our life-time histories of stored bytes of learned information and their hundreds of millions of  interconnections, powerfully interact to effect our perceptions, beliefs, emotions and behaviors.

Therefore, these hundreds of millions of interconnections made manifest through only two classes of behavior would appear even more complex than the combining of elements that account for all earthly matter.

This perception may help us to understand why the study of human behavior has lagged so far behind the progress made in other sciences. 

The science of human behavior must “soldier-on”, however, because the behaviors of  the human species remain its own worst enemy.
