The word “philosophy” translates from Greek as “love for wisdom”, which means that the result of philosophy is wisdom. The subject of philosophy is the human, and the main characteristic of humans is the mind. Therefore, the subject of philosophy is the mind. Therefore, wisdom is the understanding of the mind.

The current scientific explanation of mind is that it is a system that works with information and has functions to collect, store and process it. This is wrong.
I have discovered, that our experiences: images that we see, sounds that we hear, touch that we feel are not information collected BY the brain, they are STATES OF the brain, that change under the influence of electricity.
Very simple, there are two systems that try to explain mind. Let's look at both of them.
The current scientific system states that there is such entity as information, and organisms with brains can collect it. Note status of information as entity and status of the brain as a vessel, that stores this entity.
It's a very mechanical system, one thingy works with another. It consists of many parts that interact between themselves, but there's just one problem: we don't know anything about these parts and their interactions. Even though the term “information” is very popular now, we don't know what it is or what happens with it in the brain. The current system of the mind is this: something happens, and the brain is responsible.
I have an article that explains in detail why the current system and the concept of information are wrong, but I've decided to just give you the new knowledge which is the best evidence.
In the new system, our experiences are not information collected BY the brain, they are STATES of the brain, that change under the influence of electricity. Experiences are states of the brain. A state is presence or absence of electricity. A neuron under the influence of electricity will be in different state than a neuron without electricity. Different strength of electricity will result in different states, so there’s a range of states a neuron can be in. This range of states is the range of our experiences. There is no gathering of different information, there are different states of the brain.
Simply PRESENCE of electricity in the brain is enough to cause an experience. Electricity is not caused by information and it doesn’t carry information between neurons, it changes the state of neurons. This is different from the old system, where the role of electricity was transfer of information between vessels, neurons. Neurons are not empty vessels, there is no content, there are only neurons themselves and electricity that affects them.
I’ll use vision as the most... obvious example. When the eyes are closed, there is no nothingness or darkness (which is implied by the view that neurons are vessels), there’s a STATE of the brain. When the eyes are open, ELECTRICITY from the light-sensitive cells in the retina changes this STATE, resulting in a different “image”. Two different states, two different images.
The difference between two systems is that the parts of the new one are all known material objects that exist for sure. No part requires definition. The brain is the brain, electricity is electricity, and a state is a state, it means here what it always meant, description of a single object in two different situations, like on and off. The states are not a new entity that requires proof of existence, like information. They obviously exist.
I've reminded you about the current explanation and also introduced the new system. This was introduction, now let's continue with the full description of the new system and therefore the full explanation of the mind.
The first basic ability of mind was perception, gathering of information. Instead of gathering of different information, there are different states of the brain. What you see now, is a state of your brain that depends on electricity. If the strength and position of electricity in the brain will change, you will see something different.
After perception, collecting of information, there was memory, storing of information. However, as soon as we discover states we see that perception and memory are the same mechanism. Experiences and memories are not two different entities, they are states of the brain that change under the influence of electricity. The only difference is the SOURCE of electricity.
In the case of perception, electricity comes from the light sensitive cells in the retina. With memory, electricity that affects the brain area comes from other parts of the brain, connected to it. This is why perception is constant image, there is a constant stream of electricity. And this is why memories are brief and bleak, the electricity comes in short spikes and is weaker. Perception and memory also feels different, there is no feel of tension in the eyes, but there is tension in the head during remembering.
Instead of an empty space and different entities, there is the brain and two sources of electricity that affects it. Nothing is being stored in the brain, memory is not recalling of the past, it is as real-time as perception.
Brain areas become connected when they are being affected by electricity at the same time. Now, when one of these areas will be under the influence of electricity, all connected areas will also be affected, and the other way around. This is the mechanism of associated memories. As you can see, instead of different informational objects that interact in an unknown way, there is actual physical connection.
If one area has many areas connected, they will be activated one by one. After activation, an area cannot be activated again for some time, which means the next area will be activated, and so on. This is how we can recall all we know about a single subject.
Any number of brain areas can connect, the difference is in the source of electricity.
Electricity from receptor + electricity from receptor. You see something and you hear something.
Electricity from receptor + electricity from brain. When you see something and remember something.
Electricity from brain + Electricity from brain. When you remember something and then remember something else.
I’ve used vision as an example, but everything said applies to all other experiences, like sound for example. Even though experiences appear different, they all are the same thing, states of the brain. That’s how they can influence each other, that’s how a sound can make you remember a picture. I will explain why do they appear different at the end of the book.
As you can see, instead of many complex entities and interactions, we got a very lean and simple explanation of perception, memory and association of memories. Completely material, with all elements known. In the next chapter I will explain the final basic ability of the mind, thinking, and also how did all these complex entities and interactions appeared in our use, when they obviously don't exist.
Finally, based on perception and memory, there was thinking: processing and use of information. And one of the tools of processing was language, which allowed us to work with information: to give names to existing objects and create new objects. As if there's a table with documents in front of us, and we describe them with language. This “inner voice” was the main evidence for existence of mind and consciousness.
We considered language a special semantic (symbolic) system, that is different from other experiences. It's not like that. A letter is just a picture, its pronunciation is just a sound. No different from other pictures and sounds. We learn letters by looking at a picture and hearing a sound. Two states become one, just like I've described above. Now, when you will look at a letter, you will hear its pronunciation, and if you'll hear the pronunciation, you will remember the letter.
This means that words are not special entities produced by the brain, they are memories. And when you use them, you just remember them and do not produce them with your thinking ability.
This is why you can’t read foreign words, you don’t have memories, you can’t simply think out the meaning. This is why kids may not know the meaning of some words, but an adult can give several variants. This is not a difference in intellectual capabilities, it’s a difference in memories, states.
Some people would say that even if words are memories, when to use them is still thinking. This is wrong. There is no deciding, there are associated memories.
We greet each other when we meet because “greetings” is associated memory with “meeting”, with the situation of meeting. You don’t say in your brain “I’m meeting a person, now I must say a specific greeting”, it’s just happens when the brain area with the memory is affected by electricity.
Just pick a word, and then you will immediately remember all associated memories. For example, “a shop”: buying, selling, clerks, groceries, waiting in line, credit cards, shoplifting, security, pushing a cart. Or “traffic light”: walk on green, stay on red. And so on.
You can also remember any word in any situation. For example, words Yes and No are associated with questions, but you can say and even sing them whenever you want. You can also look at something green and call it red.
So, you don’t decide when to use words, you just remember them.
The fact that words are memories has huge, huge consequences. This changes the status of the words: previously, each word represented an entity that we named after we discovered it with our thinking. This is wrong. Since words are memories, there are no entities.
If we look at the words like Time, Good or Thinking, we will see that there is no actual entity present. For example, Time. What is time? Some would say that it is movement of a clock, movement of the sand, movement of the sun. Or that it is aging.
But movement of the clock is not time, it’s movement of a mechanism. Sand falls down and planets rotate because of gravity. Aging happens due to biological reasons. So where is Time?
The answer is that all these definitions are actually names of the situations witnessed by men. They are memories.
There is no time, but there is the sun in the sky. There is no time, but there is sand in a bottle. There is no time but there is wrinkled skin. All these situations are named “time” by humans. Situation plus a word, image + sound. And when person again experiences a similar image, the part of the brain with the word gets aroused by electricity. That’s why there are so many definitions of time, they all have something similar, like “change” for example.
Another good example is emptiness. There is no emptiness, no such thing in the universe. If we look at the objects that are called empty, we will see that there is no emptiness. For example, an “empty room”. It’s not empty, because there is air, light and other particles. The same goes for any “empty” space, like a hole in a piece of paper. If we look at the piece of blank paper, we will also see that it is not empty, it is a piece of paper with nothing on it, no ink, no paint. And black holes are not holes at all, on the contrary, they are places where matter is very dense. So there is no emptiness, but there are all these situations that we call “emptiness”.
Nothingness do not exist at all, there can't be no nothingness in something, nothingness cannot interact with something.
This is how information appeared: it is another name for a message. We were exchanging letters, then we began exchanging signals through electric wires, and now information is exchanged between neurons. In all these situations there is the same part, exchange. A person that knows what it is to exchange a message, will understand what exchanging of information is.
But there is no such entity as Information.
Another thing that shows that there are no entities is the existence of entities without explanation. If we discover entities and then name them, we should be able to explain them. However, there are many entities without explanation. For example, if we'll ask someone if he knows what is a car, he will say yes. But if we'll ask him to EXPLAIN what is a car, he'll probably will not be able to answer. He knows what is a car, because he has seen one, he has a memory associated with the word “car”. And the explanation “a car is a transport with an engine”, it's another separate memory. Memory, not an understanding of an object.
So, entities like “time” or “mind” don’t exist. But what about material things like apples, isn’t it obvious that apples exist? No, because “existence” is also a memory, just like “time”. All properties of the material entities are memories.
But the material entities themselves do “exist”? No, there are no entities at all. An apple is not different from the table below it, no different than air that surrounds it. It is we who see them as different because we have different states. There are no different entities, there are different states.
So if nothing exists, then what is all of this, what is the universe? That’s it, there’s nothing BUT the universe, everything IS the universe, everything is one. There is single universe which we divide with our words, memories. This has big meaning for humans, because we considered ourselves separate from the universe, that there was the universe and us. This is wrong, we are the same thing with the universe. We do not exist and we do not die, it’s the universe taking different forms.
The same goes for the meaning of life, a popular philosophical question. The answer is that there is no meaning, we didn’t appear for some purpose, we appeared because we could appear, just like the whole universe. The “reasons” appeared because of language.
So, two things to remember: we do not produce words with our thinking, we remember them, and words do not represent entities discovered with thinking.
The status of the words has huge consequences. We have a tremendous number of words-entities, that supposedly help us to understand the world. And this number is justified by the complexity of the world. But it was the other way around, it's the language that was too complex and hindered our ability to see the perfect simplicity of the world.
And of course, the status of the words is one of the evidences that there is no thinking.
In the informational system, the human is actively processing information and produces conclusions. The words were these conclusions, but like we just learned, they are just memories, and not a product of thinking. This goes for the whole thinking process.
We do not produce conclusions: all our actions, opinions, evaluations are memories. We are not thinking creatures.
This is how my work began. I looked at the world, at the actions of people and saw that there is no thinking, which can be put into this formula: if the human is a thinking creature, why did he do a stupid thing? It's either he's stupid, and the whole humanity is stupid, or there is no thinking. The option “everyone's stupid” seemed unscientific, so I dropped the concept of thinking completely. This allowed me to discover what there actually is.
Let's analyze a situation. A man prepares to go to a shop, he brushes his teeth and dresses up. Supposedly, all these actions were conscious, he decided to act like that. But. When he was crossing the road, he didn't look both ways, and got hit by a car. As he said later in the emergency care, he was on his way to buy cigarettes.
If he is a thinking creature, then why didn't he was careful when crossing the road, and why does he smoke? Isn't the horrible suffering caused by cancer a good argument to stay away from cigarettes?
Why did he think in one case, but in the other, even more important, didn't?
We considered thinking to be constant process, when really, our decisions are memories. Separate memories. If a person has a memory, he will act, but if he doesn't, there will be no reaction. No thinking will be triggered, because it doesn't exist.
In the example above, the person acted that way because:
-he had the memory “to dress up”;
-the memory “to brush teeth”;
-the memory “to buy smokes”;
-no memory “to look both ways”, and
-no memory “smoking causes cancer”.
We don't walk up to a road and start thinking “Okay, this is an object Road, now I must look both sides or else I'll get hit by a vehicle”. You just do that when you walk up to a road. Because when you were a kid, someone told you that, or maybe you saw a hit previously. And now, when you are near the moving cars, you look both ways. The road itself doesn't cause the PROCESSING that will result in CONCLUSION, that there can be a fatal crash. Nor objects, nor thinking exist.
But sometimes we DO stop and say “I need to think about it”. But that's the point, “to stop” and “to think” are both memories. If a person doesn't know that you can stop and think, he will not do that. That's where we were wrong, that thinking is our natural ability like breathing. But to think, you must KNOW that you can think. And still, it will not be processing, just listening to your memories, and the result of this “thinking” will depend on available memories, you will not be able to step outside them.
But what about the new information, new knowledge? There IS a scientific progress, right? We do not produce new information, new ideas, we just put together existing memories into a new memory, just like I've described in the first chapter. For example, if a person looks at fire, and then remembers something else, he will “apply” fire to it. If we already know about metal, we will create new tools just by remembering metal in new situations. Tools, are metal in different situations.
The separate memories explain situations like when a smoker tells others that smoking is bad. Doesn't he understand, that he himself smokes? No, because there is no understanding, thinking, and “to smoke” and “to tell that smoking is bad” are two different memories. Or when a soldier just killed a person and then sat at the piano and played beautiful music. Two different memories, and not two features of one mind.
So, our decisions are memories. Another ability of thinking was evaluation and creation of conclusions, opinions. We processed information and made conclusions about something.
For example, a person looks at a fat person, and this makes him feel irritated, he says that the fat person is bad. Conclusion: fat people are evil. What really happened, is that he was pushed by a fat person in school. Or maybe watched a movie where a fat person is a bad guy.
This is why we have characters in art that everyone recognizes, like a man in a black suit who smirks and rubs his hands. Here''s your villain! And this is why politicians don't wear black suits, don't smirk and rub their hands. Neither do the criminals.
An experienced soldier “senses an ambush” because he already was ambushed, and this narrow path reminded him that narrow path. There is no sense of danger.
Kids and professional biologists look at animals that stand together in a way that their heads touch, and they say that they are kissing. Because two faces nearby is the memory of a kiss. Animals don't actually kiss.
If we'll look at our whole life we will see that we never learned how to think and nobody taught us that. Isn't the skill of thinking should be taught since kindergarten?
Instead, you learned the alphabet, and repeated it your whole life. You learned numbers, results of their interaction (the table of multiplication) and also repeated it without any change. However, when you didn't know something, teachers would ask you to think. But how can you think out poet's date of birth? You can just know it or not. A good pupil is the one that remembers well and then recalls flawlessly. This is what the teachers should have taught, just learn and repeat, but this is considered totalitarian, suppression of free thought. Instead, they demand thinking without teaching what is thinking, and if there are no results, they consider the pupil stupid.
Now we approached the theme of character, features of mind. We considered that people differ in their level of intelligence and character, that there are smart and stupid people, good and evil, kind and mean, normal and crazy. This is wrong.
For example, if a person looks at a colored person, and then remembers or says a racist slut, that means he hates colored people. If he looks at a woman, and remembers a degrading word, he hates women. If he thinks about violence all the time, he's bloodthirsty, likes violence or is crazy. If he is afraid all the time that his friends will betray him, and his woman will leave him, then he is sad or suspicious. If dreams all the time, then he is dreamy. And so on.
All of this is wrong. All the these reactions, all the thoughts are not thoughts at all, they are memories. Racist slurs are associated with colored people, and degrading words with females. A torture is what you can do with a person. Blood and death are associated with humans, we have blood and we die. Betrayal is connected with friendship, break up with love. And so on.
All of these are memories which were named differently because of language. We separated thoughts on good, bad and sick. For example, when a person looks at a pointy object like a screwdriver, and then imagines how this objects pokes his eye. The poking is just a memory associated with pointy objects, just one of the things you can do with a pointy object. The same goes for when a person holds a fragile object like a plate or a mobile phone, and suddenly thinks about throwing it on the floor. He just remembers a crash that associated with fragile objects.
All these entities appeared due to language, but that's not all. Even though we had separation of thoughts on good, bad and crazy, there was no clear understanding of the difference between them. This is why when a person remembered something, he didn't know what it was. For example, if a person recalls a word or even a whole phrase, what is it? A memory, a thought, an experience, an idea, an instinct, intuition, imagination, character or crazy “voices”? We didn't know. All of these are memories, but if a person doesn't know about it, he can conclude that this is something bad, that this is voices and he is crazy. He will seek treatment, but it will not do him any good, because he's not crazy, he just doesn't know how to work with memories.
Explanation of different behaviors with differences in intellectual abilities led to appearance of different levels of intelligence: retardation, stupidity, norm, smartness and finally, genius. Geniuses are these very smart people that can give answers to the questions that only they understand and therefore move humanity forward. However, if we'll look at the lives of geniuses we will see, that they are genius in one, often very narrow field. Why are geniuses not always genius? Why don't they raise the general level of science but only one small part of it? Why a genius can find a new chemical element, but can't find a cure for a disease? Or discover a new law of physics? Or a political mechanism, a new way to organize ourselves? How can a genius look bad, be dirty, poor, a bad parent and even a bastard?
Because there is no thinking, there are only separate memories, and if you know about the laws of nature it doesn't mean that you know that you are not wearing pants right now. And the other way around.
If we'll take a “smart” person and give him different job, he will not succeed, even though he's supposed to be smart. He will not be able to think out how everything works. This is why we receive specialized education instead of moving freely between professions in our level of intellectual abilities.
Very often people can't understand things, and this is explained with the lack of intelligence. Actually, it is a difference in states. You can't understand things until you are in this state. Just like I've said in the previous chapter, you will not be able to understand the meaning of a word if you don't have a memory associated with it. For example, a person that is looking at an apple will understand the word “apple”. But the person in the other room will not. But when he will also see the apple, he will also understand what is apple. Except it is not understanding, it's a memory. When they were in different rooms, they were in different states. When they saw the apple, they both entered the same state.
We use many complex objects in our daily life without even knowing, how they work. If we'll try to figure this out ourselves, we will not be able to do it. Therefore the person who invented this object is very smart. But the difference is again in the states. The inventor also didn't invent the object as a whole, he started with simple things that came together into something different. Nobody invented a dish without knowing the ingredients. And if you know the ingredients you will understand the dish.
One of the most common situations is when a “good” boy or girl do something not good at all, even horrible. That's because there are no good or bad people, and actions are separate memories. Therefore, a boy can be polite, a good pupil, and at the same time do drugs.
And when his parents will find out about this, they will not know what to do. Because make a baby, feed him, go to school and drugs are all different experience. And when you were caring for the kid you weren't working with drugs, and therefore don't have experience with them. You will not be able to think out the resolution for the drug problem, because there is no thinking.
So, here are the main things to remember:
All actions are memories. We act not because we think that way or because we are like that, but when there is a memory. The memory is the action, it doesn't cause processing that results in action. For example, alcoholism. A person drinks alcohol not be cause he want's to drink it, or because he is an alcoholic, but because he knows about alcohol, he knows how to drink. Every time he sees a bottle, he remembers drinking.
If you'll again look at your life you will see, that you always did things as soon as you learned them. Words, kisses-dates-sex-marriage-kids, choosing profession, education, hobby. You saw a film about a sport, you began imagining yourself doing it, and then you signed up for it. You saw the commercial and, if you had the money, bought the stuff. The companies spend more money on marketing than on development of their products. And how strong we react when we see something from our childhood? “Hey, it's the …!”
Games, when you actively do the goals, the quests, and then drop the game when they are over, not even remembering why you played it. Toys, that the kids beg you to buy only to forget about them on the next day after the purchase. It's just “to buy a toy” and “to play a toy” are two different memories.
All differences in actions are caused by differences in memories and not by differences in intelligence or character.
If two persons have different opinions or act differently, they have different memories. Not all people are alcoholics, not all even drink alcohol. Because some people had alcoholic parents, and they don't want to be like them. Some found out about the danger of alcoholism before learning about alcohol, so the associate action is not “to drink” but “to say that alcohol is bad”. And in some people, memories about alcohol cause pain in the liver.
One person always threatens people with violence, and the other one does opposite, always avoids violence. It's just that the second one already was in a fight and knows what it's like and how it can end. He knows what is pain and injuries. You must know however, that the mechanism here is not “he doesn't do it because he understands”, there is no understanding, there are different memories. The memories, the states of the first person lead to a fight, and the memories of the second person to avoidance of violence.
A father takes his son with him to workplace, and the little kid watches father work. Then he says that father does something wrong, that it can be done better. Father tries that, and indeed, how could he not understand such simple thing all this time? Is the boy smarter than his father? No, it's just that to work and to watch someone else work are two different situations, that give different experience. The kid acted differently, because he had different memory.
Since actions are memories, if there are no memories, there will be no actions. Just like I've said, no thinking will be triggered by objects, because there are no objects and there is no thinking. This is very important, because previously we explained inactivity, passivity, with evil, indifference or stupidity and didn't know what to do with those.
Actions are memories, control of actions are also memories.
If a person does something it doesn't mean that he knows that he does it, because an action and control of action are two different memories. To act, and to understand what are you doing are two different memories. The instrument to work with memories are not thoughts, it is other memories, the memories about memories.
One rushes through life with the eyes wide open, always doing what is currently in his head, without any control. The other one always listens carefully, then calmly sits down, takes a piece of paper, divides it in two with a line, and writes down advantages and disadvantages of the next action. To listen, to be calm, advantages and disadvantages are all memories. A person without them will not act like that.
If you never stopped and learned that you can control yourself, your actions and situations in your life, then you always lived in a moment, depended on it, and most definitely have a lot of problems with yourself and others.
The man learns about his existence and his abilities when he receives experience in everyday situations. For example, by doing something stupid in front of a pretty girl and receiving her judgment, a boy will be remembering this situation to understand what went wrong. This is how he will notice himself and his actions, and that he must control them. Therefore, if a person didn't have such experience, there will be no consciousness.
The path to wisdom begins with learning yourself. The understanding of existence of the base, your body and the ability to control it, allows to move forward. The understanding of the body allows understanding of health and healthy lifestyle, appearance and its influence on others. The understanding of the influence of emotions allows control of them, which in turn allows to gather more experience by listening to people. And if everything will come together, the achieving of wisdom is possible. That's what happened with me.
One of the parts of my scientific success is my active work on memories-tools. Later I will publish them, along with the rules of thinking. We will still use the term “thinking” and the encouragement “Think about it!”, but they will have a new meaning: the work with memories.
The information system made it seem that we react to different information, as if there is good and bad information, good and bad memories. Now we know, that there is no different information, there are different states of the brain. All experiences are the same thing, there is no different between what you see, a flower or how someone tortures a child, it's all just electricity.
Electricity. Now we know what affects us. Previously, mind was an empty space where we easily worked with many objects, just by sitting calmly. Now we know, that experiences are states of the brain under the influence of electricity. If there is an experience, there is tension. Experience is always tension.
This is why you can't sleep when there is light or noise.
It's not the CONTENT of an experience that affects us, it's the PRESENCE of an experience itself. And the more experiences there are, the stronger the tension is. It's the NUMBER of states that makes us react differently, that makes us suffer.
When somebody dies it is considered a sad situation, however not all people react the same. Why does some people don't react at all and the others cry? The number of states.
If you didn’t know the person, hearing about his death will not cause any reaction, because you have no memories. But the more memories you have about the person, the bigger the tension will be, leading to physical reactions such as crying, breathing problems, sweating and so on. That’s why people who knew the deceased closely will react stronger than random people, they have more memories: all the moments together, your plans, the fact that you are alone and old now, loss of support, reminder about your own imminent death.
This is why we can feel really bad about death of one person, but can feel nothing if we hear about death of many. We simply don’t have memories about large number of people, there’s nothing associated with a “hundred of people”. And it’s easy to relate to one person because we know one person, ourselves, very well.
People were wondering why we don't feel anything when we hear about many victims, because in the old system one death is a sad situation, therefore, two deaths are even worse.
One of the most common reasons for suffering is “embarrassing memories”. A person remembers a situation where he did something wrong or he considers it wrong, and he feels bad, becomes red, sweaty, he begins to mumble and even hits himself in the head couple of time. Again, all because of the tension caused by the number of memories. An embarrassing memory consists of your own actions, why they were wrong and often a reaction of someone else. That’s a lot of states.
One of the most strongest reactions is fear. But there is no fear, because there are no scary entities. For example, height, the fear of height. We are not afraid of height, the view from a height is no different than other experiences. But height has a lot associated with it: the fall, broken bones, head hits and loss of consciousness, a scream, the fact that you screamed in front of people. It's tension from all these memories make our legs tremble and our head spin.
Or a visit to a doctor, when we are sitting in front of a cabinet, and having that knot of tension in our stomach. This knot is caused by memories associated with doctors. Needles, pain, screams, that teeth drill and the smell of medicine.
Butterflies in the stomach before a date, because we are remembering all the possible events at the future date.
Fear of stage. A singer goes onto the stage, but then begins to think about the audience and becomes nervous, his voice begins to tremble and he might even forget the words. All of this is caused by tension, which appeared due to all the memories associated with performing: reaction of the audience, fear of forgetting words, your appearance. The memories about failing led to failing.
A dark corridor or a street are not scary themselves, but if you know, that someone might jump out...
The fear to push a button is caused by remembering the possible consequences.
The fear of opening a box is caused by memories about the possible content.
A child plays calmly with a box of matches not because it is stupid, but because it doesn't has memories about a fire or burns. And his parents do, that's why a sight of a baby playing with matches causes such reaction.
Money cause powerful emotions, but not because they are a special object. A lot of things connected to them: their often hard earning, and all the things you can buy.
Since now you know about the number of state, you can control all these situations and remove suffering. High number of states leads to suffering, therefore, you need to count and control the number of states.
The first and very important thing to note is that suffering is ALWAYS caused by the NUMBER of states, never by the content. You are used to calling people or situations ugly, horrible, sad and so on, but all those words mean nothing at all. It’s always the number of states.
Another thing is understanding of what separates the states. Every different experience is a different state. Images of the letters A, B and C are three different states, but they also can be in a single state ABC. Just like video is a collection of images, memory about movement is also a collection of states, there is no animated, video experiences.
So let's begin. Previously, we made several mistakes that led to suffering. The first mistake is an attempt to stop memories, not allow them to not relive them again and avoid suffering. It is impossible to stop memories, because they are electricity. An attempt to hold electricity will only increase tension that will lead to suffering. You must do the opposite, as soon as the memory starts you must relax and let the tension run its course. Let neurons fire. Breathe normally.
The second mistake is an attempt to remember everything at once, as a single memory. A memory starts, and we try to quickly remember the whole situation so that it would end faster. But all we get is problems with breathing, wet eyes and pain. Actually, a situation consists of several different memories, and we must make pauses between them.
Let’s analyze a situation for an example. A person had a fight, or saw a fight, now every time he remembers it he becomes angry, starts hitting the air, things or himself, bites the pillow and screams. A memory about a fight causes this, because it’s consists of many different states. Every action, every word and every detail is a different memory. To avoid suffering, one must let the memories fire one by one, not as a single “fight” situation. So after remembering something, make a pause to lower the tension. Let the memory about a hit fire, then make a pause, then move to another memory, with another hit. Do that until all memories fire and tension dies down.
But the memories about one situation do not exist in vacuum, there might be associated memories that will fire and crease tension. A lot is associated with a fight: pain (hit in the head = migraine), death, murder, jail, unfairness (he hit him from the back! or He was younger!), answering offenses (hey, YOU'RE a fool!). Also, there are your own possible actions that you would do on someone's place, like hits, dodging, retreat, calling for help, refusal to get on your knees (I can't believe he did it, I would never!).
This is another example that our actions are memories. A kid will look at a fight in a movie with excitement, repeating the hits, but a man, that actually been in a fight, who knows what it's like, will change the channel.
There are also memories about the future actions. For example, you've been in a fight and now want to sue someone. Now, every time you'll remember this future action, you will remember what led to it, the fight. This is why thoughts about revenge are so exhausting.
One of the most common reasons for tension and suffering is when you remember even that has already occurred, but now you understand it differently and want to do or say something differently. For example, you apologized when you were a kid and accepted the blame, but later you've realized that you got treated badly, even cruel, that you were lied to. Now you remember not only the old situation but also your new actions.
Let's return to the tortured child example. If you are watching a video where child is being tortured, the tension in your body will rise because of: changing pictures, screams and crying of the baby, words of the torturer and your answers to them, your own memories about pain, violence and what it's like to be a weak kid, memories about saving a baby, desire to hug the kid, make him feel better. Even more tension will raise memories if it's YOUR kid being tortured, like your responsibility and that you failed to prevent this.
So, there are two things to remember. Do not try to suppress the memories, let them fire, but at the same time, do not allow several memories at once. Memories do not disappear after firing, they will fire again. Does this mean that you will always have to deal with them? Thankfully, no.
You still can forget things, but it happens not with time, but with change. When the old connections in the brain are broken, memories will disappear. They will still remain in the brain, but will not be affected by electricity from receptors and other brain areas. You can yourself rewrite memories, by repeating a situation with different circumstances. To do this, you must remember a situation, let the electricity fire and disappear, and then remember the current situation, the calm. Now it's a new memory connected with the first situation.
For example, you can forget the word “stop” when there’s a red light. Recall the red street light, then you will remember the word “stop”, let the tension pass, and then repeat the word “stop” about 10 times. Now this word is associated with calm, you basically cleared the associated memories.
However, since most situations are composed of several memories, you will have to rewrite them all. For example, if someone hit you while you were eating an apple, you must rewrite memories associated with the word “apple”, the image of apple, the taste of apple, and the process of eating (you were hit while you were EATING). But that's not all. Now this situation is associated with “memories, that you rewrote”, so you must rewrite that too.
Another way to make the work with memories easier is to give names to the situations. Instead of remembering images, just remember the name of the situation. For example, instead of remembering the whole fight, just say “It was a fight”. Details also can be put into the name: “They attacked me together, from behind”.
Now, when you are no longer afraid of the content and can avoid high tension, you can go back to the situations and see that it is solved, there's nothing to go back to. For example, you can forget all embarrassing or bad childhood situations because they are just that, child situations – they all happened when you were just a child. Little, weak, naive and without experience. It is normal, it is natural.
Or when someone insulted you at a public place, and you didn't answer anything, because it happened very quickly, and the realization came much later. That's normal, there is no thinking, and reaction requires time. Besides, it's only words. There's nothing horrible in them, it's the memory that causes tension.
The embarrassing memories are often nothing special. If you fell when you were going on stage... nothing horrible happened. Nobody thinks ill of you, nobody thinks you're a fool. This sort of things can happen to anyone, all people make mistakes.
Returning to the situation with child torturing. You couldn't save this child, because you weren't there, and you can not be everywhere and be able to fix any problem. It is impossible.
The mechanism is that the understanding of the situation allows reduction of the number of memories. “Normal” and “impossible” simply don't have any associated memories, the recalling ends on them.
A lot of people have a diary, because it appears to them that it makes things easier. And they are right, when you write things down, the tension goes into motion before reaching painful levels. A written down situation is easier to understand, because every detail in in front of you. Other mechanism also work here: remembering the description (name) of the situation instead of the whole situation, and the written down situation becomes a finished chapter, a thing of the past that doesn't require revisiting.
A few moments more. The frequency of memory appearance depends on their quantity. So if you have only several bright memories, you will alternate between them all the time. And if both these memories are “bad”, then you will end up in a circle of suffering.
This is an important detail that explains why people fall into deep depression and end their life. You can not leave people alone with their memories ,you must help them create new, so that they would have happy memories, memories of rest and calm.
When all our attention was directed towards our memories, we ignored the present. For example, we liked to feel sad by remembering school situations while listening to music. But music raises tension in the body, and together with tension from the memories this led to suffering. So it is a bad idea to be working with memories while listening to music or watching movies.
If your head hurts, any tension will cause pain, even laughter of your beloved children. This is important to understand, relax and ignore memories completely. Don't lash out at your loved ones, it's not them who are bad, it's YOU who feels bad. It will pass.
When you caught cold or didn't sleep for a long time, your nervous system becomes, as I call it, inflamed, more easily aroused. The state begin to change more quicker, which leads to sharp increase of tension in the body. It is if you are being bombarded with memories.
And sometimes it's the other way around, you stuck with one memory and can't switch to another, to understand for example that the situation you are stuck with is nothing.
Hormones also affect the nervous system, that's why teenagers and pregnant women have problems with cognition and emotions. Tired nervous system is also the reason why women don't feel anything after giving birth, even though the event is considered happy.
How you feel also depends on atmospheric pressure and temperature. In heavy days, just take a break. Feel sleepy? Sleep.
Everyone knows the situation when you just woke up and start remembering your daily plans, and this brings pain. It's just that you nervous system hasn't woke up yet, give it time.
You will be recalling fresh memories exactly because they are fresh. It will pass in a few days.
So watch not only for the number of states but also for the state of the body in general, and also for your environment, weather. If you got cold, don't guess why you feel bad, just relax and endure, wait for some time. Don't follow the quick to change memories into the deep.
Past is past, don't let it influence your future.
Just like emotions, movements were considered a type of reaction, that occurs after processing of information. Brain processed information, and then sent commands to muscles, “telling” them how to move. We knew that muscles move because of electricity, but we didn't know what caused this electricity and how we controlled our movements. Since our mind and will were mental concepts, we didn't know how they could affect the material body.
Well, now we know that our
experiences are states of the body under the influence of
electricity, and if there's an experience, there's tension. And the
more different states there are, the bigger the tension is in the
body. So, the cause of our movements is the increase of tension in
the body caused by electricity from receptors and the brain.
For example, if you touch a hot object, you will remove your hand not because your brain tells you it’s dangerous, because there will be damage to the body and so on, but because of electricity created by receptors in the skin, affected by heat. There is no processing, thinking or deciding before an action, it’s always just tension. The presence of electricity IS the action, it doesn’t cause PROCESSING that results in action.
A very simple example is appetite and chewing. A piece of bread doesn't cause appetite, and if you'll try to eat it you'll see that you have to force yourself to bite and chew it. But. If you'll put a piece of meat on that bread and take a bite, you will notice how much easier it is to chew and swallow, how you salivate stronger. And if you'll use salted and peppered meat fried in oil, put some sauce on it and heat everything up in the oven... Mmm-mmm, I bet your mouth is watering while you are reading this. It should be obvious for you at this point that every experience caused by food (salt, fat, oil, heat, spices) is a new state of the body, new tension, so the more of them, the bigger the tension is in the body, the stronger is the bite and all movements and processes, like salivation and swallowing, increase in activity.
Taste is not a property of food, it's a state of our brain. The same food can taste differently when you are sleepy or sleepless, when you are ill, when your nose is clogged and so on. However, there is a difference between how different foods can affect you. Meat by nature is more complex than bread, because it contains more parts, like fats and salt. There's also a difference between a hot, cold, and very cold food.
Speaking about food, the eternal question what type of ice-cream you will chose also depends on the state of your body. Person can choose a chocolate ice-cream because it creates more tension in the body, but will choose a vanilla if this extra tension makes him nauseous.
When a person listens to someone and nods often. He doesn’t do that for a reason, «to communicate something», it’s just electricity caused by sound makes his body move. In many ways: nodding, raising an eyebrow or tapping a foot. And also makes diaphragm contract, so we make sounds like: hmmm, ugh, yeah, ahhh, ohhh. When you concentrate on something you go Hmmm or Ugh. Then, when you remember something you snap your fingers, and exclaim something like A-ha! When something happens and the crowd goes “woo”. No matter WHAT happens, something cool, or something bad, like a fight. All these sounds are simple contraction of diaphragm caused by increased tension in the body. All you need to produce the “woo” is some tension in lips and diaphragm.
Another example is when we hit or throw something when we are angry. The explanation is that every new experience is new tension, so when a person notices something, it raises the tension in the already tense body and makes them clench a fist and do a jerking arm movement.
Laughter and humor. A joke consists of two parts, the set up and the punchline. That's two different memories, and the electricity they cause makes us laugh. Plus they can have associated memories. You laugh when you imagine (remember) situations in the joke. Experienced storytellers will deliberately make a pause between two parts so that people will have time to visualize (remember) the situations. Good sense of humor is desire to visualize the things in the joke, you can't just sit and wait for someone to make you laugh.
The difference between “an inner voice”, whispering, normal voice and screaming is in the body tension. It's the same brain area but with different tension applied.
The states are clearly visible in movements of animals and even plants. A dog’s tail begins to wiggle when he sees his owner because of all the memories associated with the owner, like feeding and touch.
Cats often jump straight up in the air after a loud noise or your sudden movement. They don't think they are in danger and must move, there is no deciding before the action, it’s purely electricity caused by sound or new image.
Or when cats meow after someone talks to them. It’s not that they talk back, it’s the electricity from the sound causes an action.
Flowers open because of the electricity produced by various processes caused by sunlight. They don't decide they need a tan.
So, we move because of increased tension, and HOW we will move also depends on the state of electricity in the body, on its position and strength.
For example, how will a person react if he will feel pain while sitting? Just like it does outside the body, electricity will go where there is lower resistance, so to the now relaxed legs, and the person will stand up. He might also scream. If we would apply electricity to him while he was in different position, his actions would also be different. If we’d apply electricity to him while he was inhaling, and therefore his diaphragm would be already tense, he wouldn't be able scream.
Electricity goes from high-tension areas to low-tension areas, and from two movements will happen the one that requires less tension. Areas that are already tense, will not be able to get tense again, so electricity will go someplace else.
Position of the body depends on the state of electricity, and single new tension can change everything. For example, people stop when they remember something, and they fall down when a ball hits them in the face while playing. They also stop if something hurts, like when they pull a strip of skin or a bandage.
The movement of worms, caterpillars and snakes gives clear example of how electricity moves across the body, its wave-like pattern. This simple cycle of tension-relaxation is responsible for all our movements, no matter how complex they might seem. Try it yourself, watch closely, listen to your feelings, track the source of tension, the strength of tension, the path of tension. It will not be easy at first.
One of the most important questions is the mechanism of control.
All actions are caused by increased tension, but not all are accompanied by the feeling of tension, so it might seem that there was no tension. This makes it hard to understand this concept. For example, we don’t feel tension when we move our fingers, and this movement is very quick and easy. The explanation is that instead of separate directed orders from the brain, there is a constant level of tension in the body, which changes very quickly, not a lot of electricity is needed for this change, for movement. So you do not start with nothingness where then tension comes, there’s always tension. What changes is its strength. And tension rises not only because of big, obvious reasons like an experience, but also due to not so obvious inner changes of tension.
This constant level of tension is what gives as constant self-awareness, what allows us to feel and control our body. There are two types of movements: the random and controlled. Random movements happen because of changes in the level of tension in the body. Such movements include for example blinking, breathing, heartbeat and general restlessness, like when you tap your foot. Also, movements like when you change your position because of cramps. If you’ll try to prevent breathing or blinking, you will feel the rise of tension and then the movement will still happen, because you can't stop electricity.
Then there are controlled movements, when you willingly move your body as if by giving commands. However, there are no commands. The mechanism of movement is always the same, increase of tension. And in this case, tension in the body parts increase because the movements are associated with the feel of the body. Feel of your body, is also a state of the brain just like any other state, like sound. So if you will remember the word arm, you will feel tension in an arm, and it will move. This is why you feel tension when you remember your body or look at it.
I’ve said previously that our experiences are states of the brain, but that’s not all. They are states of the whole body, the whole neural system. This means that the whole body remembers tension, and this tension can unite with any other memory, like image for example. What you see right now is the same state with what your body feels.
This explains many things. For example, what we call muscle memory, when we do something and feel that the body responds to it as if it has done it before. Every position of the muscle is a different state. For example, every expression of the face has its own associated memories, the same goes for the position of the eyes. You will feel different if you look up or down. Every position of the lips has different associated words, so if you make an O with your lips, you will likely to say a word starting with O.
Appetite, sugar rush and drug addiction all have the same mechanism. The body remembers strong states and then when you see food or drugs again the body repeats this state.
The body states is how you can describe your states with words, the words are connected with the feeling of tension and temperature. This is how you can explain that you want to go to the bathroom.
We also remember pain. Pain is not a special signal, it is also a part of the states gradient. By repeating the state we repeat the pain, but since remembering produces weaker tension, the pain is also weaker. There are no pain receptors, we do not collect the “pain” information, these are the same receptors as the basic senses, only in a different state.
Everyone is familiar with a situation when someone yawns, and then YOU feel desire to yawn. Or when someone laughs and it makes you smile. This happens because the image of the smile is connected with the tension in face muscles. So when you see a smiling mouth, you remember your own smile. Because for both of you, the smile is the same state of the body. This is another proof that there are no informational objects unique to everyone – all similar bodies will have the same experiences. When two people are smiling, their bodies are in the same state. And even dogs can feel tension in their face muscles while looking at a smiling person, which, by the way, can cause an attack.
The same goes for the pain, the feel of touch and other experiences. For example, we can feel the dryness of our lips by looking at other person's lips. Or feel warmth in our feet by looking at someone's feet in socks. Feel discomfort in the back while looking at someone's bad posture.
Reflexes are an example of the separation on conscious (willing, voluntary) and unconscious (unwilling, involuntary) actions. However, no separation exists, because there is no will, no commands from the consciousness. Both types of actions are actually the same mechanism, increase of tension. There is no difference between vegetative and higher activity.
This is the explanation of movements. Some things might be a little hard to understand at first, but the main rule is only one: movements are caused by the increase of tension and not by commands.
In the first chapter I've said that even though all experiences are states of the brain, they appear different. A sound and an image are both just states of the brain, but they appear different, as a sound and as an image. Why this state appears as a sound “aaaa”, and this one as a feeling of cold?
I call this “the question of appearance”, this is a very deep, basic, underlying, meta question, so it might be hard to understand. Thankfully, this question can be formulated much simpler: what are the colors that we see? It's like there's a picture in our head, and we are looking at it.
This was one of the many troubles with the information system: if the image is processed information, then who is looking at the result of processing? It's like endless perception: we are looking at a picture on a screen, but who’s looking at the picture in our head?
The question arose when I was quite deeply in the state system, so I was able to answer it quite quickly, and I even remember how it happened.
Since I knew that mind is not our special ability, I said to myself: we have as much mind as a rock. Then I asked myself: what can a human and a rock have in common? Well, they both exist...
Existence. Our experiences, the colors that we see, are not produced by the brain. They are EXISTENCE of the brain, what it's like to BE brain. You don’t see the image, you ARE the image.
We considered that experiences are only available to beings with mind, that they are only produced by mind. Therefore, we created the notion that the existence of matter is empty. But it's not, existence of matter is not empty.
That darkness you see when your eyes are closed is what it's like to be brain in a specific state. A brain without electricity, a dead brain will also have “darkness”, only it will not be darkness, it will be something else. A rock will also have “darkness”, only it will be different from both living and dead brain. Every difference in the universe has different existence.
But our brain doesn't have one existence, it has several: pictures, sounds, tension, temperature. Why its existence is different, if it's a single entity? Well, this means that neurons are different somehow. My guess is that even tho neurons are not different separately, when you connect them in one system under the influence of electricity, they become different.
Changes of the body state result in changes in existence. The existence however, have no influence on the human body or human actions. If we’d removed the image, and left only electricity (body states), human actions would not change, we would even be able to draw pictures using different paints.
And that's it, that's the whole explanation. But it sure has a lot of consequences. This is basically a new aspect of life for us to explore. Even though I do have more... thoughts about this, but it's probably too early for me to release them. But feel free to explore it yourself, it IS available to everyone.
I also know the perfect way to end this part. Drug users were searching for deeper layers of consciousness, at least that's what they were telling, and missed what was right in front of them, non-empty existence. Don't do drugs.
Are you ready to become free, boys? :3
Since I'm a man, one of the first things that I've noticed was female influence on males. I also found out that the current explanation of sexual attraction is obviously wrong and doesn't give any answers, so I decided to search for them myself. I made the explanation part of the basic book, because it turned out to be a much more important thing than we considered.
We tried to explain sexual attraction with many things, the main being: love, passion, instinct (like in animals), conscious and unconscious search for pleasure. A need, like food and sleep.
All these reasons are not scientific, do not explain anything and themselves require explanation. So I dropped them all. As I found out later, they all appeared because of language. What I couldn't drop was the arousal itself. It is obvious that something exists and is caused by women. You look at a woman, you remember a woman, and you exhale sharply, you say Oof!, your breathing becomes deeper and faster, your buttocks contracts, you raise on your toes. Women make our body move... in the direction of women.
Who also notice changes in man's behavior. How he starts to grab, grope, bite and hit with his hips. And after the ejaculation, how he relaxes, lies motionless and wants to cuddle.
So what can it be? At that point I already knew that there is no different information, that there is no difference between a word, a color and woman skin. The appearance of woman is not special information that triggers something in man.
But if it's not the appearance, smell or voice, how else can a female body influence male's?
Heat. The body heat.
The normal temperature of the human body is 36.6 degrees: like a very, very hot day. Even a single person can raise temperature in a room, and we all know how hot it is in a room with company. We wear clothing not only to protect ourselves from the elements, but also to keep our own heat... that our body produces. It's not the bed that is warm, it's we are.
However, the understanding of the role of heat was just part of the explanation. At that point I was already working with the concept of states, in one way or another, so the sexual arousal I had aroused STATE.
I also knew, that for our body, all experiences are electricity, which means that it's not the heat itself that causes aroused state, it's the tension that the heat raises in our body.
All of this resulted in the full explanation: aroused state, is a state of a male body, that it enters at a specific level of tension.
Now the main details. Aroused state, is a whole state of a whole male body. Because of the concept of pleasure we considered that stimulation of some body areas causes pleasure. There is pleasure until there is stimulation. This is wrong. When the tension In the male body raises to some level, the body enters a special state, that continues itself from that point. This state affects the whole body: breathing, heartbeat, blood pressure. It raises tension in muscles and a feel of tension appears.
This state, and not the search for pleasure makes males move. There is no special pleasure not during it, not after it.
Onanism is considered something that males do to get pleasure. Actually, it happens because of aroused state, that raises tension in the body, and a man can not remain calm, he MUST move. And his movements, just like I've explained, depend on the position of his body: if he is sitting, then instead of hips movement there will be hand movement.
There are several main things that increase tension which results in aroused state: normal body processes (random erections, morning erection), heat, rise of tension in the groin region (bladder pressure, penis stimulation), tension from physical activity.
Other states can connect with the aroused state. The body remembers tension from heat and it becomes associated with the female image. This is how they can arouse us at distance, in our mind. There are no arousing things and preferences, there is only body heat. Female lingerie, female footwear, asphyxiation of a woman all have one thing in common, the woman, and the woman is heat. We notice things like lingerie because they are also present, they are part of our state: woman is the source of arousal, but she is wearing a pink swimsuit, it's summer and we met at the beach. All these details man will remember, but only woman is causing arousal.
Body heat is the reason why we can be aroused by an ugly girl, and why we feel arousal towards other women when we already found love.
Erection doesn't mean the aroused state, and aroused state is not always followed by erection. The quickest, easiest and strongest erection starts by itself from the aroused state, and it is hard and unpleasant trying launch the aroused state by only penis stimulation. There are no special zones, and touch cause just the feeling of touch. If we'll rub the penis, especially the head, we will feel pain. Tension accumulates not in the penis, but in the muscles below it, that go through perineum up to sphincter.
Since mind is the states of the body, the aroused state affects it. Tension from the aroused state prevents the change of states, blocking other tensions, which means that the man if left with only current experiences: with heat, which raises tension, that continues the aroused state, which leaves the man with only current experiences, that raise tension... and that's up until either the removal of the source of heat, or spasm, not always with ejaculation.
It is the reason of male “stupidity”, when an aroused man doesn't think about the consequences of his actions, and does something he regrets later. The memories about consequences, pain for example, simply do not fire.
Perception changes also. Because of the increased tension, colors become brighter. Female breasts seem heavy and full, when they are simply skinny bags of fat. The view of the penetration causes tension, an illusion of piercing, when vagina is a cavity. But the main illusion is the appearance that women also have aroused state.
The aroused state, is a state of a MALE body, it is not present in females. And it's the effects of the aroused state that prevented males from noticing this.
If we'll look calmly at female actions during sex we will see... that there are no actions. The woman just lies calmly on her back, with her legs spread, while the man moves on top of her. If the woman had the same aroused state as the man, she would move just like him. Two different states can not cause different actions, different actions have different states.
We all know what happens in nature when two animal males in heat meat: a fight.
We are used to thinking that female genitals are also a special zone just like male genitals, stimulation of which brings pleasure. Vagina however, is a cavity, an empty space, and the only experience women get is the feeling of touch and only at the entrance. The same goes for clitoris, its stimulation is like that of stimulation of a flaccid penis, uncomfortable.
There are many signs that women have no arousal. They always lose focus, their eyes are not focused on the man, they are constantly moving. Women often get distracted during sex, fixing their hair for example. A man would not notice such nuisance. They can also stop having sex immediately, switching to other activities without rest period.
In books and movies, women are going crazy from touch, therefore, the bigger the penis the bigger is the pleasure. Pornography and videos of birth showed us, that women do not react even when a very big object is involved, and that vagina has impressive stretching capabilities. During sex and labor, omen don't have a desire to cross their legs.
Women moans and screams are very well known, and they arouse men because they remind them about female body. But if we'll look at them calmly, we will see that women scream too hard and men do not scream at all. If they both would be receiving the same pleasure, they would moan about the same. What really happens, is that women scream, because they have breath to scream, and an ability to contract diaphragm. Men do not have breath, because it is burned by the aroused state, and their tension is in another body part.
So why do women scream? Because to scream, is an associated memory with sex. Due to the lovemaking scenes in movies and pornography, we learn that people scream during sex at a very young age. Or because they want to arouse the man stronger so that all of this would end faster. To not look cold, disinterested. To show the man that his actions are right and he indeed gives her pleasure, that he is good in bed. To show the neighbors that she has a man and they are having sex. Sex!
And when a female marries, she tells her husband straight up that she is too lazy to moan. Because now she doesn't have to prove anything.
The man moves because his body in the aroused state creates tension. The woman has to FORCE herself to move. That's why even if a woman will decide to do some sexual movements, she will get tired. The man doesn't feel fatigue when in aroused state.
All of this we will see if we'll calmly look at women. But that's the catch, men CANNOT look at women calmly, because they cause aroused state. All of our emotions and problems connected with women were caused by the aroused state.
Shyness in the presence of a woman, shaky hands and voice, red face, are all caused by tension from the aroused state. The feeling of falling in love, when a man is focused on one woman, dreams about her, and this causes that warm feeling, relaxation, widening and watering of eyes, a smile, deep “fresh” breath, the feeling of enthusiasm and life. There is no feel of love, it's just the tension from the aroused state.
But as it turned out, the situations connected to women can also cause suffering. So strong, that my discovery of the number of states happened because of the suffering related to arousal.
Why do we often feel discomfort and even suffering in situations with women? Suppression of the arousal. Just like it is impossible to stop a memory, you cannot stop aroused state. But because of various reasons, man are often try to. They don't want to lose control and grab the woman, they want to keep a clear head to be able to think straight, they don't want to allow onanism. Or because sometimes arousal is considered bad.
A situation familiar to many modern men: watching a movie with your parents, and then a naked woman appears, or a sex scene starts. When this happens, the boy feels a sharp spike in groin and his breath is stopping for a moment. This is the beginning of the aroused state. If he was alone, he would exhale or inhale with power, would say Wow! and touch his genitals to drop the tension. But because there are parents in the room, in front of whom you can't act like that, the boy will be fighting the arousal, which will result in discomfort, redness, sweating and other movements, like foot taping. The boy will remember this tension and this situation for the rest of his life.
Mother and daughter are two objects that are considered very bad for a man to get aroused by. And for example, when a boy finds out that his mother had sex, he will get aroused, but will try to stop it and that will result in tension in stomach (the fear knot) and teary eyes.
Or a father, who is very angry because his daughter began dating. His annoyance is caused by the suppression of aroused state that started because of the memories about sex, about what can a girl and a boy do together.
Hate, fear or horror that man feel when hearing about rape, are caused by the suppression of the aroused state. Because it's bad to get aroused by rape.
The solution is the same as with the memories: let the body, electricity, work. Enter the aroused state. Relax, breathe normally. Don't be afraid that you will lose control, entering the aroused state doesn't mean immediate action, it requires more tension. So if sex was mentioned, you have to notice it, relax, and when the tension will drop, return to the dialogue. This doesn't take much time.
For example, before a talk about sex, you need to enter the aroused state at first and let the tension die out, then your voice will not tremble and your face will not turn red. Do the same if it's hard for you to read this chapter.
There is another way to drop tension: turn it into movement. Just move your hips and say Woo!, exhale.
Now that we know the mechanism of the arousal and about its absence in females, we can see how inadequate were the relations between men and women.
Everyone is afraid of sex. Women, because they don't understand what is it, because they don't have arousal, and men, because they don't know how to control their arousal. Nor men nor women know how to teach kids about sex. Special body zones are considered good, but a child gets punished for its attention to them. Onanism is considered something veeery bad, even though all boys did it and it's impossible not to do in some circumstances. Too much sex is considered abnormal, perverse, but nobody knows what is the norm. Virginity is sometimes considered bad, sometimes good, all when there are billions of people, which means that they did somehow answer this question.
Women do not have arousal, they don't feel anything during sex and sex has no meaning to them. But women want to be with boys, who do have arousal. That's why they have to pretend that they are also interested in sex. A woman that is not, is not interesting to men. Besides it's not hard, just lay for a bit, moan sometimes and then answer “Yes”, when the boy will ask “Did you like it?” Then you will able to tell your girlfriends how good it was. “Sex? I love it!”
Men must always remember two things: woman actions are NEVER cause by arousal, and it just APPEARS to us that they are cause by arousal, because woman are arousing US, it is OUR arousal.
All sexual actions for women are just actions that she can decide to do. But men will feel arousal, and if for some reason they will try to fight it, they will feel irritation. For example, if a man thinks that sexy clothing is bad, then a woman in it will make him angry because of the aroused state suppression (because getting aroused by sexy clothing is bad). For the woman, there is no sexy clothing, the low cut is just a design choice, one of the many possible.
Since women don't know about arousal, to them there are no arousing actions. Only men notice female nakedness, because it causes a consequence: the aroused state. Female genitalia is also not as sensitive as male, they don't attract female attention. There is no difference between being dressed and being naked to a woman. That's why they often demonstrate it, and how do you call a woman that is showing everything to anyone? A slut. The lack of special reactions was regarded as presence of something bad. Naked, means a slut, but there is actually nothing special for women in nakedness.
This goes for the whole sexual act, for women, it's just one of the things that people can do. That's why they easily participate, which can also be regarded as promiscuity or perversion.
But the word “slut” meant not only an easy woman, but also easiness and corruption in general. There is no female lust, but there is being lightheaded, corruption and betrayal. And when a man finds his wife with another man, he is angry first of all because of betrayal, because the person he trusted brought some man into their HOME. The term “prostitution” means “everything for money”, and can be justly applied to a traitor or a mercenary.
One of the most common situations with the aroused state suppression is when a boy thinks about previous boyfriends of his girl. The memories about sex arouse him, but since sex of your girlfriend with others is bad, is adultery, then he will try to suppress it.
The female sexual role itself causes irritation and scares men, when they think about it. A man thinks about sex, gets aroused, but then remembers the female role. But the female role is absolutely passive, and to imagine that you have to lie motionlessly, be calm and breathe calm. You can't be absolutely calm and aroused at the same time, and that's why the man will try to slow down his breath, and this will cause pain in chest and suffocation.
There is another side. A man tries to understand what women feel during sex, and for example puts a finger in his mouth or ass. Of course, he will not feel anything. But. Since he is thinking about sex, he will get aroused by women, but since he has a finger in his ass, he will think that it's because of the finger, that he enjoys the female role in sex. I will discuss the consequences of this in a different article.
If the women had to do something that they didn't want to, it was the other way around for the men, they had to hide their feelings and emotions. It was some sort of middle ground between them, which didn't work for anyone and nobody was satisfied. The man has to be ashamed of his erection, other way he's a pervert. But it's impossible to control the aroused state, it's either on or off. And it will always be there when there's a source of tension. Therefore, to remove arousal you need to remove the source of tension. A man who doesn't think about woman doesn't get aroused all the time. But it's impossible to not think about them, because they are everywhere in the city, always. The only places without them are such as the army, on a ship, on the North Pole or somewhere in the countryside. There, man will be calm. Though some take photos of girls there and suffer.
Therefore it's not true that there is a male hunger for women that grows over time. Sailors can spend years in the sea calmly, but the news about the return will cause a lot of stress, because there are women back home. During years of my work, I was mostly calm, but when the end of it appeared on the horizon, it began driving me crazy, because the end of the work means return to dating.
To stop onanism, you have to stop seeing or remembering women. You can easily stop watching pornography, but you can't stop love or dating. You think about your own (future) girl, get aroused and it makes you move. This theme is not that simple, and I will write a separate article about it.
There is a very good example from my own life, that shows the attitude towards male arousal. A nanny can scream at a boy for discovering his or someone's body, even hit him, and then go back to other nannies to talk about sex or watch pornography. For women, onansim and childish interest in the body are not related to sex, they are something different, abnormal, bad. That's because women have no arousal, that would connect everything.
I've said above that there is no sense of love, all our feelings associated with women were caused by the aroused state. This means that women do not experience those “love” feelings and suffering that man do. But men also do not experience love, just tension from the aroused state. There is no love as a feeling at all. And we don't need it to be nice to each other. Love is trust, support, understanding, work on shared future. You don't have to burn with love to be nice, to ask if everything is good or gift something tasty, to hug and kiss.
This book also wasn't written because of the big love for humans. It was written because of understanding that problems must be fixed.
Since the theme of sex relates to everyone, is very emotional, personal and confusing, it was used by crooks to confuse people even more. For example, by selling books on sex that promise to teach you how to get more pleasure by having sex “the right way”. These books make people have sex by instruction, without even knowing how stupid it is and that they actually have less pleasure by doing so. “Sex experts” appeared, giving “scientific” advice that can ruin a family. The same do various “man” and “woman” magazines, that only want to make you buy them, that's why they write all that nonsense with straight face. And nobody, nobody in them actually does themselves what they write.
People are being scared that their body is not fit for sex so that they would by pills that fix it. There are also pills that promise more pleasure and stronger arousal. The pornography industry tries hard to attract males by inventing and spreading perversions that can seriously damage male aroused state and their perception of women and relations.
I would like to end this chapter and the whole book with the thing that started it. One of the first problems I got interested in was the problem of rape. But when after the discovery of the aroused state I've returned to it, I've realized that I was lied to.
Rape is considered a horrible crime, that often has heavier criminal punishment than murder. But if we'll look at it calmly, without emotions (and remembering the aroused state), we will see that rape is just an intercourse without permission. Absolutely standard sexual intercourse that doesn't bring pain. Women scream only in movies, for emotional effect.
But if rape is just an intercourse without permission that doesn't hurt, where did such horrible reputation came from?
Even though rape doesn't cause pain, the fact of such rude act itself, of such treatment is appalling, insulting emotionally hurtful. A woman had something done to her, without her consent, IGNORING her objections. This is a situation with many states that raise tension which bring suffering. Also, it might have associated memories. For example, the feeling of physical weakness, helplessness. Male rudeness, insensitivity and wildness in aroused state. Words said, insults. That nobody came to help, even though she screamed.
Also the perception of rape is important. If there's understanding that it is just a physical assault and an intercourse without consent, the woman will be fine. However, if rape is considered something dirty, blackening, disgraceful... then the woman can conclude that she has no honor now and commit suicide.
Of course rape is a crime and should be punished. But when it receives bigger sentence than murder, then it is obviously not adequate. And this is the fault of men, who because of the suppression of the aroused state cannot evaluate the situation in the right way and suffer even more than women. For men, rape is that horrible thing.
But men are getting manipulated, scared. Because of the influence of rape on men, including legal, the rape accusation became a tool of control of men. Rape's reputation is artificially worsened so that the accusation itself is enough to end man's reputation, career and sometime life. A woman can simply pretend to be a victim, blame a man and the fact of the accusation itself will cause serious consequences.
Even more, the accusation of being a rapists is used to cover up more serious crimes, like murder. One country can propagate that men of the neighbor country are rapists to justify a war against them.
Also, harsh punishment for rape can be used by the state to strike fear in population and by that limit interactions between men and women.
This examples includes many things from what I've said above: absence of sexual feelings in woman, presence of arousal in all situations connected with woman body for men, suffering caused by an attempt to suppress arousal, and dirty manipulation of the relations between humans made to control them.
Let's remember the main things to see the whole picture:
-there is no information and no abilities of the brain to work with it;
-there are no separate objects of information: experiences, memories, thoughts, dreams and so on. All of these are states of the brain and the whole nervous system under the influence of electricity, the only difference is in the source of it;
-words are not produced by thinking, they are memories;
-words do not represent objects, there are no objects;
-there is no thinking, we do not process information and do not produce conclusions, our actions are memories;
-experiences and memories are always tension, the strength of tension depends on the number of them;
-suffering is always caused by the number of states, and never by content;
-movements are caused by the increase of tension in the body;
-colors that we see are the non-empty existence of matter;
-women affect males with the heat of their body, which raises tension in the male body and starts the whole aroused state;
-discomfort and suffering in the situations with women are caused by an attempt to suppress the aroused state;
And this is the end of the book. I congratulate you and humanity on reaching wisdom.
Vasiliy Vasilievich Melnik, 1st of March 2018, Version Midas (wip)
What to do now.
I've finally finished the book. Of course, it will keep improving and edited, but the base that consists of three parts: the states, status of the words, and non-e,pty existence will not change. And when you know about the states, you can write the whole book again.
Since this is a basic, underlying book, some more deep topics will be explained in separate articles. The explanation of mind gives you the tool to work with knowledge, but not the knowledge itself. The understanding of the mind will not give you knowledge about the content of the room next to you, you must enter it yourself. There is explanation of the mind, and there are consequences of the explanation of the mind. You must apply the explanation to spheres of your life, such as health, personal relations, politics.
Right now you should learn what you've read and get comfortable with it, get used to it, so that its use would be simple and easy. Just live and apply new knowledge to life situations.
If you understand how important this book is, tell about it to your family, friends, colleagues, to your audience.
And of course, don't forget to add this website to your bookmarks and check it at least once a week, because this is where all my works will appear. The design of the website will change, but the address itself will not, because I like it a lot, so scientific :3
Read this if you want to learn what does the name of the version “Midas” means.
Midas was a king that received from Dionysus a gift of golden touch, to be able to turn everything into gold. And that's what I do: wisdom gives me answers to any questions, and everything I begin ends in success. But the path to wisdom seriously affected my health, and just like Midas, I'm risking to die under a pile of gold, under a pile of answers that will not affect anything because no one will see them. There is a period of collecting knowledge, working with it, and finally the period of using the results, and all evidence shows that it's time to publish my work.
Midas couldn't eat, because food in his hands would turn into gold. I couldn't eat normally too, because I was rushing to finish my work, and often chocked, which almost killed me a couple of times. The full head of work distracted me from food and sleep.
When Midas hugged his dear daughter, she turned into a gold statue. I couldn't touch women too. When I've began my work I've willingly stepped away from relations with women until I could understand love. Well, I've succeeded, even before the end of the work on the book. I had understanding of love, but I was bind by work. It's hard to hold yourself, when you are full of life, when you've reached wisdom, the understanding of life. Especially when you've realized what kind of girl you want :3
So. The Version Midas is the version that I publish because I consider that it must be published, not because it is fully ready and I'm satisfied with her. To put it simply: a work in progress.
