This is Your Brain...




Greetings and welcome to another installment of Jeweled Tiger School!!

I am your host, Gyokko the Kidd.

Without further ado, lets get 'er done!




Brainwork.





Here lately, I have emphasized the need to become more critical, more self aware, and more self determined. In other words, it is high time that Men Go Their Own Way, delete feminist and other self-defeating programming from their memory banks and society at large, and actually become the Masters of their own destiny.

As I have laid out in other postings, the process of creation and realization of key goals and objectives is out there. Certain enterprising individuals and groups are actively using these principles to win the game of life, and so must you.

Here's a little something about me:

Some of you might have already figured out that I belong to a certain organization. Every so often, I change the name of this blog to reflect certain branches of knowledge that this group teaches.

But for those who haven't noticed, click here to find out more about the Path that I follow. Please note that the content of this blog in no way represents the organization referenced above. My opinions are strictly my own.

Contained within the schools of knowledge that I have studied for over a decade is a principle known as Sanmitsu [1][2]. This is one of the ways in which certain Japanese warriors in dark costumes took care of business.

Thought energy, word energy, and physical energy (effort) come together in harmony, and the energies are amplified because the three waves of energy do not contradict one another. With self directed focus, commitment, and intention, the non physical is made manifest. This is one of the primary reasons why these certain individuals were widely feared in ancient Japan, and why their fame (and their art) has survived to modern times. Click here for more information.

Forgive me for digressing, but I am sharing all this with you, Dear Reader, for a number of important reasons.

1) By knowing my philosophical background, it will be easier for you to follow my thought process, and where I am coming from. You will also know why I emphasize certain principles more than others.

2) By understanding that the above mentioned principle of Sanmitsu has been tested over a vast time period and under extreme conditions, you can be confident that it is anything but "pie in the sky" wishful thinking. The principle works, and I would like to see enlightened men use it in their own lives, instead of constantly falling victim to it.

How do you think the feminists, socialists, and money men succeeded in undermining Western Civilization? Through Committed Thoughts, Well Chosen Words, and Countless Deeds over the course of centuries.

3) To encourage you to take control of your conscious and subconscious mental processes. As the Christians say, life is constant Spiritual Warfare. Those of us fighting the Fempire are really fighting a battle of the Spirit. We are constantly being programmed by family, friends, institutions, religions, corporations, and governments to feel, think, and behave in a certain way.

It would be one thing if the messages out there were empowering, enlightening, and beneficial for humankind. Unfortunately, the reality is that 80% of the programming available is wrong, flawed, and designed to control and subdue you. The instructions given are usually NOT in your best interests.

Feminism is a prime example of a philosophy built upon lies and deceit. It is an ideology that silences dissent and produces a host of negative outcomes, simply because 80% of the people buy into it. They Think feminism, Speak feminism, and Act according to feminist dogma.

Your duty, as an enlightened person who knows the facts about feminism, is to completely purge it from your mental processes, and to help others purge femi-fascism from their memory banks.

The various levels of mind are key to this whole struggle. Everything in this Universe literally depends on it. We have free will, and we must choose, very carefully, what we ultimately believe in because...

What we believe is what we will ultimately end up with.

Single Parents and the Brain.





From the Wall Street Journal:


This Is Your Brain Without Dad



... Conventional wisdom holds that two parents are better than one. Scientists are now finding that growing up without a father actually changes the way your brain develops.

German biologist Anna Katharina Braun and others are conducting research on animals that are typically raised by two parents, in the hopes of better understanding the impact on humans of being raised by a single parent. Dr. Braun's work focuses on degus, small rodents related to guinea pigs and chinchillas, because mother and father degus naturally raise their babies together.

When deprived of their father, the degu pups exhibit both short- and long-term changes in nerve-cell growth in different regions of the brain. Dr. Braun, director of the Institute of Biology at Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg, and her colleagues are also looking at how these physical changes affect offspring behavior.

Their preliminary analysis indicates that fatherless degu pups exhibit more aggressive and impulsive behavior than pups raised by two parents...

... Dr. Braun and her colleagues found that in the two-parent families, the degu mothers and fathers cared for their pups in similar ways, including sleeping next to or crouching over them, licking and grooming them, and playing with them. The fathers even exhibited a "nursing-type" position.

When the mother was a single parent, the frequency of her interactions with her pups didn't change much, which means that those pups experienced significantly less touching and interaction than those with two parents.

The researchers then looked at the neurons—cells that send and receive messages between the brain and the body—of some pups at day 21, around the time they were weaned from their mothers, and others at day 90, which is considered adulthood for the species.

Neurons have branches, known as dendrites, that conduct electrical signals received from other nerve cells to the body, or trunk, of the neuron. The leaves of the dendrites are protrusions called dendritic spines that receive messages and serve as the contact between neurons.

Dr. Braun's group found that at 21 days, the fatherless animals had less dense dendritic spines compared to animals raised by both parents, though they "caught up" by day 90. However, the length of some types of dendrites was significantly shorter in some parts of the brain, even in adulthood, in fatherless animals.

"It just shows that parents are leaving footprints on the brain of their kids," says Dr. Braun, 54 years old.

The neuronal differences were observed in a part of the brain called the amygdala, which is related to emotional responses and fear, and the orbitofrontal cortex, or OFC, the brain's decision-making center...

... 'A Horse Without a Rider'

The balance between these two brain parts is critical to normal emotional and cognitive functioning, according to Dr. Braun. If the OFC isn't active, the amygdala "goes crazy, like a horse without a rider," she says. In the case of the fatherless pups, there were fewer dendritic spines in the OFC, while the dendrite trees in the amygdala grew more and longer branches.

A preliminary analysis of the degus' behavior showed that fatherless animals seemed to have a lack of impulse control, Dr. Braun says. And, when they played with siblings, they engaged in more play-fighting or aggressive behavior.

In a separate study in Dr. Braun's lab conducted by post-doctoral researcher Joerg Bock, degu pups were removed from their caregivers for one hour a day. Just this small amount of stress leads the pups to exhibit more hyperactive behaviors and less focused attention, compared to those who aren't separated, Dr. Braun says. They also exhibit changes in their brain.

The basic wiring between the brain regions in the degus is the same as in humans, and the nerve cells are identical in their function. "So on that level we can assume that what happens in the animal's brain when it's raised in an impoverished environment ... should be very similar to what happens in our children's brain," Dr. Braun says.

Other researchers, such as Xia Zhang, a senior scientist at the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research, and his colleagues in China, have observed different consequences using voles, mouselike rodents that also naturally co-parent. (Fewer than 10% of species raise their offspring with two parents.)

Voles deprived of their fathers—either from birth or later on in childhood—exhibited more anxious behaviors and were less social, spending less time engaging with stranger voles that were placed in their cage, according to a study by Dr. Zhang and his colleagues that was published in July in the journal Behavioral Processes.

Of course, the frontal cortex—where thinking and decision-making take place—is more complex in humans than it is in other animals. Thus, says Dr. Braun, it is important to be "really careful" about extrapolating the recent findings to human populations.

"The minute you get into stuff with extensive social and environmental components, the social differences between humans and animals are massive," says Simon Chapple, a senior economist in the social policy division of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the 30-country grouping of the world's largest economies...

It amazes me how people can contradict themselves. Earlier in the piece, we have this comment:

"The basic wiring between the brain regions in the degus is the same as in humans, and the nerve cells are identical in their function. "So on that level we can assume that what happens in the animal's brain when it's raised in an impoverished environment ... should be very similar to what happens in our children's brain," Dr. Braun says."


And later, we have peoples who are desperate to negate the damning implications of this research:


"Of course, the frontal cortex—where thinking and decision-making take place—is more complex in humans than it is in other animals. Thus, says Dr. Braun, it is important to be "really careful" about extrapolating the recent findings to human populations.

"The minute you get into stuff with extensive social and environmental components, the social differences between humans and animals are massive," says Simon Chapple, a senior economist in the social policy division of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the 30-country grouping of the world's largest economies."


Yes, caution should be warranted, and more extensive research should be carried out to see how fatherlessness affects brain development in human children.

HOWEVER.

Because research such as this greatly undercuts the legitimacy of Feminist theory and Feminist Public Policy, those who wish to continue said theories and policies are quick to backpedal with the "Humans are different" argument.

Nevermind the fact that if these findings had ZERO implications for humanity, the Journal would have ZERO interest in it and wouldn't even publish the story to begin with.

The "Humans are different" argument makes no sense in this case because we KNOW that the 80% (not an exact percentage, but a shorthand reference to the 80/20 principle) of children brought up in single parent families have all manner of negative outcomes in terms of wealth, health, crime, and relationships, just to name a few [1][2][3], just like the animals in the study.

Consider this article from Time Magazine:


Is There Hope for the American Marriage?


... the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in May that births to unmarried women have reached an astonishing 39.7%. (See pictures of love in the animal kingdom.)

How much does this matter? More than words can say. There is no other single force causing as much measurable hardship and human misery in this country as the collapse of marriage. It hurts children, it reduces mothers' financial security, and it has landed with particular devastation on those who can bear it least: the nation's underclass.

The Marriage Gap

The poor and the middle class are very different in the ways they have forsaken marriage. The poor are doing it by uncoupling parenthood from marriage, and the financially secure are doing it by blasting apart their unions if the principals aren't having fun anymore.

The growing tendency of the poor to have children before marriage — the vast majority of unmarried women having babies are undereducated and have low incomes — is a catastrophic approach to life, as three Presidents in a row have tried to convince them. Bill Clinton's welfare-to-work program encouraged marriage, George W. Bush spent millions to promote marriage, and Barack Obama has spoken powerfully on the need for men to stay with their children: "We need fathers to step up, to realize that their job does not end at conception; that what makes you a man is not the ability to have a child but the courage to raise one." (See snapshots from a very special wedding.)

The reason for these appeals to lasting unions is simple: on every single significant outcome related to short-term well-being and long-term success, children from intact, two-parent families outperform those from single-parent households. Longevity, drug abuse, school performance and dropout rates, teen pregnancy, criminal behavior and incarceration — if you can measure it, a sociologist has; and in all cases, the kids living with both parents drastically outperform the others.

Few things hamper a child as much as not having a father at home. "As a feminist, I didn't want to believe it," says Maria Kefalas, a sociologist who studies marriage and family issues and co-authored a seminal book on low-income mothers called Promises I Can Keep: Why Poor Women Put Motherhood Before Marriage. "Women always tell me, 'I can be a mother and a father to a child,' but it's not true." Growing up without a father has a deep psychological effect on a child. "The mom may not need that man," Kefalas says, "but her children still do."

This turns out to be true across the economic spectrum. The groundbreaking research on the effects of divorce on children from middle- and upper-income households comes from a surprising source: a Princeton sociologist and single mother named Sara McLanahan, who decided to study the fates of these children with the tacit assumption that once you control for income, being part of a single-parent household does not adversely affect kids. The results — which she published in the 1994 book Growing Up with a Single Parent: What Hurts, What Helps — were surprising. "Children who grow up in a household with only one biological parent," she found, "are worse off, on average, than children who grow up in a household with both of their biological parents, regardless of the parents' race or educational background....



The outcomes for the experimental animals raised without a father were empirically negative. We know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the outcomes for human children raised without a father are overwhelmingly negative. We know that the animals in question and human beings share similar brain wiring.

Because we know all of this, is it reasonable then to say that we shouldn't use this study as another piece of evidence that, in the case of human children, fathers are needed, on a biological level, for them to achieve maximum levels of health, wealth, social stability, and happiness?

Would it be unreasonable to say that, because human brains and social structures are more complex and evolved, the impact of fatherlessness is more damaging and harmful for human children (and society) than for the lab rats (Degu) profiled in this study?

I want to address one more point in the WSJ article before I move on:


Risk of Delinquency

Still, the prevalence of single-parent households has researchers looking at possible consequences for children. An OECD report found that just 57% of children in the U.S. live with both parents, among the lowest percentages of the world's richest nations.

The report, which sparked some controversy when it was released in September, found that children in single-parent households have an increased risk of delinquency and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, as well as poorer scholastic performance.

The OECD also analyzed data from 122 separate studies and found that there was variability in the negative effects on children of living in a single-parent home; on average, the OECD found, the magnitude of the impact was relatively small. On a standardized intelligence test with a median score of 100 points, for example, a child in a single-parent family would be about 3.5 points worse off than a similar child in a two-parent family, according to Dr. Chapple, who co-wrote the report.

Dr. Braun's goal for future research is to figure out whether degu pups' brains can be rewired by introducing a substitute caregiver, such as a grandmother, or whether other social and emotional enrichment can help "repair" the fatherless pups, she says. Human children may be sent to day care, for instance, which can help them form stable friendships with their peers and other adults.

The bottom line, says Dr. Braun, is that parents need to fuel their children's brains with talk, touch and sensitive stimulation that involves give and take.

Parents, she says, "are the sculptors of their children's brains."



Note the following passage:


Dr. Braun's goal for future research is to figure out whether degu pups' brains can be rewired by introducing a substitute caregiver, such as a grandmother, or whether other social and emotional enrichment can help "repair" the fatherless pups, she says. Human children may be sent to day care, for instance, which can help them form stable friendships with their peers and other adults.



If, at some point in the future, research is conducted to find a way to help the children of single mothers (like me) and the children of divorce heal the ugly scars that our man hating culture and feminist public policy has imposed upon them, it would be absolute madness to think that someone in a lab could ultimately create a cure-all in a laboratory to help our children while at the same time keeping the aforementioned Misandric culture and feminist public policy that creates 80% of the problems in place!

It would save everyone a lot of time, energy, and resources if we abolished feminism right now. We have more than enough evidence to do so, and we have thousands of years of human social history that shows that stable marriage and family culture leads to long term positive outcomes.

The easiest and best way to prevent the negative outcomes of children raised in single parent homes is to STOP SEPARATING FATHERS FROM THEIR CHILDREN via involuntary divorce, domestic violence laws, and cultural bullying. KILL FEMINISM, AND YOU AUTOMATICALLY KILL THE PROBLEM.

Imagine, for a moment, that a coalition of Big Government types and ideologists who believed that right arms were inherently violent and dangerous passed a law that decreed that innocent children should have their potentially dangerous right arm removed when they reached the tender age of two years old. Imagine how society would be negatively impacted by the legion of children who are missing right arms.

Now finally, imagine the billions of dollars that would be spent in researching, testing, and manufacturing artificial arms to replace the arms that were removed, by force of law and bizarre custom, FOR NO GOOD REASON!

THIS, my friends, is where we are at today. Ideology, bad economic theory, and public policy are coming together to fuck up the lives of millions of innocent children (and fathers). And I am quite sure that some batshit insane feminists would have the audacity to suggest at some point that the solution to the problems that THEY caused initially is to do more "research" in order to repair the damage that was unnecessarily caused in the first place (notice the similarity of this kind of thinking to our totally ass backwards economic policy).

If anything, the ultimate goal of society should be to find out if human children are neurologically impacted (which I'm sure they are) by the removal of their fathers. And, if the research confirms it, add the study to the mountain of reasons why feminist public policy should be completely abolished forever and ever.

Before we move on, this story is interesting to me because it is another piece of evidence that points to an obvious conclusion: Fathers are needed in the lives of their children, and this is a biological and a spiritual need. All the daycare and all the government welfare kool-aid in this world will not change this important fact.





Where mind and matter meet.





And for my next act, I want to merge the importance of critical and careful programming of the conscious and subconscious mind with the implications that this Wall Street Journal story raises.


I would like to briefly quote from Dr. Bruce Lipton's fascinating book, the Biology of Belief:

... Frontier science is confirming what mothers and enlightened fathers have known forever, that parents do matter, despite best selling books that try to convince us otherwise. To quote Dr. Thomas Verny, a pioneer in the field of prenatal and perinatal psychiatry: "Findings in the peer-reviewed literature over the course of decades establish, beyond any doubt, that parents have overwhelming influence on the mental and physical attributes of the children they raise." (Verny and Kelly 1981) (p. 125).

And that influence starts, says Verny, not after children are born, but BEFORE (author's emphasis) children are born (p. 126).

... experimental psychologists and neuroscientists are demolishing the myth that that infants cannot remember--or for that matter learn--and along with it the notion that parents are simply spectators in the unfolding of their children's lives. The fetal and infant nervous system has vast sensory and learning capabilities and a kind of memory that neuroscientists call implicit memory... "the quality of life in the womb, our temporary home before we were born, programs our susceptibility to coronary artery disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and a multitude of other conditions in later life," writes Dr. Peter W Nathanielsz in Life in the Womb, Origins of Health and Disease (p. 126)."


... parents can improve the prenatal environment. In doing so they act as genetic engineers for their children... influences continue after the child is born because parents continue to influence their child's environment. In particular, fascinating new research is emphasizing the importance of good parenting in the development in the brain. "For the growing brain of a young child, the social world supplies the most important experiences influencing the expression of genes, which determines how neurons connect to one another in creating the neuronal pathways which give rise to mental activity," writes Dr. Daniel J Siegal in The Developing Mind (p. 127-128).


The Author goes on to explain the brain wave activity in children, the conscious and subconscious mind and how it is programmed, and a ton of other news you can really use.

Sounds a lot like the Wall Street Journal piece... doesn't it?? Young brain development, environmental factors, parental influence trumping supposedly predetermined genetic predestination...

Ladies and gents, I would highly recommend that you pick up this book. Don't walk... RUN and get a copy today. Your mind will never be the same again. Be sure to read it carefully, and reflect on the full implications of the information presented there.

How much damage has our policies of abortion on demand, involuntary divorce, and single mother subsidization really inflicted upon our nation? Can the full criminality of this entire Matriarchal regime be fully calculated?

Read the book, and you be the judge.



Conclusion.



UNDERSTAND.


Feminism is flat out and totally wrong. It is based on lies. It is based on false premises. The errors of feminism are infinite and plainly obvious. There is no excuse for any thinking individual to buy into or support this hate filled ideology.

The feminist lie of "children don't no need fathers" has been debunked all to hell. The truth is out there. There is no need to give feminism any credibility or credence in your conscious or your subconscious mind. De-program thyself! Banish feminist theory from your heart and mind forever.

And don't forget... you have a duty to yourself, your children, and your fellow man (and woman) to slay feminist ideology and public policy wherever you find it.

Your babies are being brainwashed by flawed, false, and outdated feminist theory. Men are going to jail everyday due to flawed and wrongheaded feminist public policy.

IT IS YOUR DUTY to oppose feminism by any means you can, within the boundaries of legality and common sense.

And finally, understand that YOU have tremendous power over yourself and those who are in your care. Know, Understand, and Obey the Universal Law.

You have the authority, the ability, the power, and the responsibility to elevate yourself and those you love to tha next level. You, Dear Reader, can and must work with the Father to make things happen.

Feminists can't hold you down forever. Governments who are out of control will be brought to heel eventually. Economic mismanagement won't last forever.

Understand the power you have to make the best out your personal circumstances. I can point out principles that have worked for me; but at the end of the day, your Thoughts, your Words, and your Deeds are the only ones that matter in your world and those who live in it. Choose correctly, and with great care.

Kind Regards,

Gyokko.

Yet another outstanding post.

I agree that we must put feminism out of our minds and concentrate upon your own development.

What you offer looks quite good to me and is probably one good route that many men could follow.

As far as children from single parent families are concerned, their plight is well known, but since their own mothers hate them, those children are sentenced to a life of misery.
If mothers hate their own flesh, what could men do about it anyway?

Western women are destroying the aquarium in which they live. Our own society is taken apart piece by piece. Why should we be concerned about women's children?
It's THEIR kids, THEIR problems: we have absolutely nothing to do with that.

Nothing.

Thanks for the comments. Whatever way you choose, make sure that you are doing the choosing, and the outcomes are beneficial for yourself and society.

As for the children of single mothers:

Agreed that women hold all of the cards at this stage. Unfortunately, the future welfare case, criminal, or prostitute might very well be the child of a dysfunctional home.

I think the best thing the country could do is to repeal the feminist agenda in its entirety. That will go a long way to stabilizing our current volatile situation.
