i can't wait for the Harmonizing of the Frequncies event Shiels is hosting. Woebot's Kundalini mix is going to forge the true group-soul
 
All that boring rationality stuff. Reasonable people working out our differences

But I’d say the tech bro and populist right alliance have learnt how to work the differences, rather than appeal to a bloc.

So its way beyond appealing to rational brains with rational argument. It’s mapping a logical system onto the irrational (which isnt the same as saying senseless) mechanisms of human belief systems and relations. Rationality and logic is sequencing. If/ then. And the machines program our irrationalities, exploiting bias, tastes, and proclivities and sympathies by channeling them through a sequence that brings a person to a favourable position for a desired outcome.

I think this has played a big part in your 'cosmic event'. The likes of cambridge analytica have done a very good job of tapping into the energy of resentment and negative solidarity that unites many disparate groups , beyond demographics .. into behavioural science, interest groups, friend networks. Historically the right have always been good at this (it’s like tabloid appeal to our base instincts on crack, but as touched on in the constant escape thread on algorithms, the gap is widening quickly). They know your strengths and weak points and can line up the right algorithmic content combo to tip you over the edge. So in a pool of floating voters they’re able to identify the kooks and paranoiacs who will be swung by pizza gate, Identify your swing issue.. Young kids? Might be education. and serve a conversion story over time, and across a few different channels. And they’ll use the persuasive approach your most likely to respond to: pathos, logos, ethos
 
Constant escape wants to build his own version of this. But he wants to use it to make us into good smart free boys... I think.

You have always said you wanted to build The Compound. It's finally being built, only it's some Branch Davidian shit with constant escape as David Koresh.
 
One of the ways they stratify is the harry potter sorting hat, the 'which character from glee are you' stuff. They stole data from fun harmless quiz apps that get you to divulge your personality type and preferences for the reward of being sorted. Then they use this data to run experiments on who responds to what content, then extrapolate from there for the whole population. It means you build hyper targeted campaign journeys to take people from believing x to believing y against their will.

I did a 'Which Philosopher Are You?' quiz on Facebook when I first signed up and it said I was Martin Heidegger.

these typologies are absolutely central to huge amounts of online meme based discourse.
 
On your cosmic reshuffle of the kooks to the alt right: another way to hit the reset button for people is to traumatise them. And the rug pull events, the horror shows don't actually have to happen. In fact it's the belief in the false flag event that is itself the traumatic event, that causes the break with authority, of reality... i can't trust anything. I think conpsiracy theories persist, float along on a ground of disbelief, because not in spite of it. they can function as entertainment that way too.
