Hubris, Homo Sapiens undoing

Hubris, Homo Sapiens undoing

This book  as practically all other books/studies presume that homo sapiens is the supreme criterion by which to judge other species. This is evidently an extreme example of anthropocentrism. Within it’s own pov many more animals are far superior within their own context than homo sapiens.
In the realms of the disinterested natural evolutionary world homo sapiens is in evolutionary terms a dead end branch. It took the species a mere 100.000 years to arrive at the point where it is on the brink of multiple factors leading to extinction.
Unbridled procreation, with a distinct tendency to self-destruction coupled a primal brain which controls an unrivaled capacity for mass destruction is not going to able to compete with even mere jellyfish which outlive us by 500 million years.
Homo sapiens barely overcame in evolutionary time scales, it’s gene pool severely polluted by not only being descendant of the relative few that survived the multiple natural disasters such as the ice ages but nowadays by medicinal progress.
Eugenetics is a dirty word because it was abused by an ideology of the 20th century but anyone with a sound mind can reason that keeping non-viable specimens in that gene pool only serves to pollute it even more.

Homo sapiens has effectively put itself outside of the natural selection mechanism which as a mechanism caused the best specimens to survive and the weakest succumb. By intervening in this mechanism of we barely understand it’s long term implications it would surprise me if homo sapiens as a species would reach a million years let alone the crocodile with a brain the size of a walnut which so far made to 200 million years.

Hubris will be it’s undoing long before

selfreported ‘science’ proves alcohol changes mood

selfreported ‘science’ proves alcohol changes mood

In this ‘study’ alcohol moodiness seems to ‘prove’ that the sort of alcohol ingested (liquor, wine, beer) influences the state of mind of the person.

quote:

” Main outcome measures Positive and negative emotions associated with consumption of different alcoholic beverages (energised, relaxed, sexy, confident, tired, aggressive, ill, restless and tearful) over the past 12 months in different settings.

Results Alcoholic beverages vary in the types of emotions individuals report they elicit, with spirits more frequently eliciting emotional changes of all types. Overall 29.8% of respondents reported feeling aggressive when drinking spirits, compared with only 7.1% when drinking red wine (p<0.001). Women more frequently reported feeling all emotions when drinking alcohol, apart from feelings of aggression. Respondents’ level of alcohol dependency was strongly associated with feeling all emotions, with the likelihood of aggression being significantly higher in possible dependent versus low risk drinkers (adjusted OR 6.4; 95% CI 5.79 to 7.09; p<0.001). The odds of feeling the majority of positive and negative emotions also remained highest among dependent drinkers irrespective of setting.”

 

Evidently the more one consumes in alcohol quantity, be it liquor/wine/beer/etc the influence will be more influential however to write and get accepted a paper stating that the sort of beverage influences the mood is beyond absurd.

The use of ‘report/reported’ in this paper should have been more than enough to have it refused for publication, how inebriated where the participants?

Unfortunately it’s not only with alcohol where self reporting has been used as a valid measurement.

I invite anyone to do a word search ‘report’ in the fields such as psychology, sociologically, psychiatry, air pollution or whichever field which can’t be empirically proven

Going by my personal experience self reporting in those fields is overwhelming

 

 

Self determination

Self determination

To start with let’s get the religieus aspect out of the way.

No god exists, there  is no afterlife ( if ever some  contradictio in terminis ever was more true). so i am a nihilist.Or rather a realist.

Any-road. I am of the conviction everyone has the right to decide his/her end of life fulfillment . Nobody should be forced to give a reason. Which is is why i wholeheartedly support  the Dutch initiative to provide the elderly with a ‘death pill’.

Subscribed by a  well balanced group of professionals this medication should be available to everyone.

Freedom from persecution and a small but important alteration of current laws suffices. Why i wonder there  exists in the Netherlands the concept of

    • the patient’s suffering is unbearable with no prospect of improvement
    • the patient’s request for euthanasia must be voluntary and persist over time (the request cannot be granted when under the influence of others, psychological illness or drugs)
    • the patient must be fully aware of his/her condition, prospects, and options
    • there must be consultation with at least one other independent doctor who needs to confirm the conditions mentioned above
    • the death must be carried out in a medically appropriate fashion by the doctor or patient, and the doctor must be present
    • the patient is at least 12 years old (patients between 12 and 16 years of age require the consent of their parents)

It’s my life, i decide how or when i end it.

Nobody else has that right. I decide if i suffer. Not you, nor you. For some the suffering might be the idea of working past 50, for some it might be working at all.

Existence itself can be a burden just to wake up everyday thinking, crap again?

So holier than thou ethical persons. Please keep your fear of death to yourself and stop forcing your instinct to live to yourselves. Please let those who’d seen life and decided ‘mwah’ decide for their selves.

Who are you to decide for me? Are you some kind of god?

I can  end life now if i choose so, anyone can. But is it not a huge burden on the EMT staff to be confronted with the often stinky corpse? I can’t call them to tell them I’ve had it.

Anymore i can stand some person has to clean up the mess after some time decomposing.

I live in France so my options are limited. Jump on the train track, drown myself, hang myself. Even typing this risks me being admitted to a mental hospital for life.

Imagine you suffer from life, you must be mad. And yes i took all medication in existence, yes i did the therapy tour.Yes i had many fulfilling relations. Didin’t work

Finally i’m alone. Free.
