Update: 10.31.17: Here is a relevant podcast discussing the phenomenon of human psychopathy from one of my favorite scholars Michael Tsarion, whom I quoted in my dissertation.
This is somehow relevant to my work because I am now completely consumed by it, but I don’t fully understand why, although it is all about consciousness studies which is the chapter I am working on now. I heard an interview with a woman whose pen name is M.E. Thomas. She wrote a book about being a sociopath, a non-criminal one, who is a law professor at a US university. I was fascinated by this and checked out her blog:
I spent hours on this site yesterday at work (slow day) and read every post voraciously. Sociopaths are people who do not feel emotions, or only base ones, and have little capacity for love, empathy or bonding. Consequently, they become mimics of emotions and are able to game almost everyone and ultimately end up hurting those who get involved with them. Charismatic, manipulative, aggressive, prone to compulsion regarding their base desires, predatory and sexual, and also confused and in pain – not talking here about sadistic and violent psychos who might also be socios. These are people who function, kinda, but either realize or don’t realize that they are not like the rest of us who can feel. Her deal was that this personality type was being generalized as sadistic criminals, but that they exist as a kind of subculture and it’s time to deal with it. She’s basically “outing” herself without saying her name.
Now, here’s the thing. She contends that 1 in 25 people are socios trying to fit in with “neuro-normatives.” She says “we sociopaths walk and live among you empaths” (those who feel love and emotion and live – or try to live to varying pathetic degrees – the moral code that such ability to feel engenders) basically faking it, learning to cope by mimicking emotional responses better than the “weaker” of us that possess those qualities and destroying those who act in ways that are against their sort of base code of ethics that can only serve themselves cause they can’t feel empathy so they exploit the emotional vulnerabilities of those around them. Apparently these creatures are easily bored, have a liquid sense of self that gives them an edge in shapeshifting as a survival technique.
Ok, I have been consumed with this for the last 24 hours so I don’t want to write you too much to read but so much is up for me on this because reading those posts I began to see two things: first, I began to understand more of myself because in this narrative I am opposite woman, I could be called an uber-empath – my ability to bond, feel connections with other entities is far off the scale of what I am guessing would be a median normative scale. I can feel the emotions and pain of others, not only in a face to face situation with one person in time now, (hence my 10 years as a psychic and card reader in which I was accurate in a way that challenged my Western intellectual indoctrination ) but also in other geographical locations that are in time now but not place for me such as the global suffering of people and animals, and in horrific acts of fate or karma, I can also feel the suffering of those in history and in other times if I choose to, though I think that perception is like a film or residue that subtly sculpts my consciousness, and I find myself constantly swatting at it sort of unconsciously like a fly or mosquito. I also get pictures to match the emotions I feel channeling through me.
Second is that through a metaphysical lens, and this person is Western indoctrinated so that a psychological and neurobiological lenscan be used to discuss this phenomenon, I see validation for my insights and theories that something otherworldly or non-corporeal is ranching our asses. She says that sociopathy as a personality type is part of evolution, a sort of necessary chaotic attractor, but I don’t think so. I think socios, as functionally as they try to be, are evolutionary aberrations. Successful evolutionary strategy favors the indigenous model of understanding interrelation and interdependence of life forms as holographic communities. Love, without the “Hallmark” connotations, is an energy that has been cultivated by our ancestors because it is the most efficient medium for making human communities in all their forms, from micro to macro, most in alignment with the environments that sustain us. To not develop that ability is alien to this planet.
Now, lastly, and thank you for staying with me if you could bear to, this means that socios do not belong here. I woke up with the vision this morning while on the couch tending my puppy that they – those souls or whatever you wanna call self-awareness in a body – were made to incarnate here by something else. They don’t belong here. They are not the order of the things, they are confused and suffering and are more likened to an invasive species than part of the evolutionary matrix of this reality on this planet. And they are dangerous to us. That she has this self-awareness was amazing to me and she did a service to those of her kind. I have respect and compassion for her, though I have a serious radar out.
The metaphor for me was that socios were “reptilian,” and empaths were “mammals.” The posts indicated that their skill sets, which were not the same as ours fell along the lines of different animal adaptive strengths. Where socios’ skills were acute, ours were more dense, where ours are finally tuned, theirs were clumsy or non-existent. Hence the recipe for when entities collide.
So that was my last 24 hours and it put a lot of things into place for me. I believe that we are experiencing a Grand Central Station of entities coming into human form for the information and event that is occurring – and that is accelerating, – and that is kicking my Pleiades-derived butt – but we are somehow programmed, or star born or whatever vernacular that you feel comfortable choosing, to a particular grid patterns.
