I just watched this infuriating video lecture where a lying, hypocritical idiot makes all kinds of absurd claims. Let's dismantle her claims.
Believes Mind Doesn't Exist
First and most important is that the human mind doesn't exist. An astonishing and flabbergasting claim coming from a psychologist since psychology is the study and manipulation of the human mind!
Where does this idiot make that claim? It's subtle but it's there. Everywhere she talks about hormones, useless crap like oxytocin and adrenalin and other such things. NOWHERE does she refer to any HUMAN EMOTIONS.
Yes, she talks about BELIEFS, but she talks about beliefs in relation to hormones. Something that is as retarded and stupid as talking about the relation between windows on your computer and current flow through its CPU.
Hormones are HARDWARE. The human mind is SOFTWARE. Human emotions are part of the MIND, they are part of SOFTWARE. They have nothing to do with hardware!
Dealing with the Emotion of Stress
Case in point, she talks about "stress". Does she refer to the EMOTION of stress? Does she refer to 'disempowered anxiety'? No she does not! Because if she did, then she would know that the moment you add empowerment to stress then you CONVERT that emotion into SOMETHING ELSE. And that "something else" is FURY!
Fury isn't the only emotion you can convert the emotion of stress to. If you move the emotion in a completely different direction, you get helplessness. This was solidly established in experiments almost 50 years ago. Give up on trying to control whether you receive electroshocks, become depressed and apathetic, and you won't suffer from stress at all.
Of course, this result is entirely inexplicable if you don't even know what emotions are. Something even the psychologists supposedly "specializing" in human emotion don't have the faintest clue about.
Their idiotic theories are roughly the exact opposite of the truth. Except for one idiot who doesn't even realize he's not dealing with human emotions at all but with categories of human emotions. He's close to the truth. Especially in the sense of "so close, yet so very far away".
No Mind, Continued
So as I was saying, to this worthless mindless cretin, "stress" is not an EMOTION at all. Her so-called "stress" is a purely PHYSICAL phenomenon. A purely BIOLOGICAL phenomenon. You see, according to this worthless mindless cretin, the human emotion of stress SIMPLY DOES NOT EXIST.
(I'll just note here that it's pretty hard to figure out how something works or what it is when you're constantly denying it even exists. When you constantly claim that monkeys have no emotions at all, only stomach ulcers.)
According to this mindless cretin, there is the hardware and then there are physical phenomena such as dying. There is NO INTERVENING LAYER such as the human mind! According to this idiot, either the mind does not exist or IT IS SIMPLY IRRELEVANT!
Of course she's inconsistent at it. Sometimes she claims the mind exists (eg, beliefs exist) but other times she claims it doesn't exist (eg, emotions don't exist). But that's just what can be expected out of a worthless fucking idiot who really should blow her own head off to spare all of her patients the damage she causes them.Appeal to Neuroscience
It's not just this cretin either. Psychology is rife with idiots such as her. I recall a university lecture where this psychology professor believed he was being "deep" by proclaiming to his class (of idiots) that there is no such thing as love or hatred, only "arousal".
Because you see, if you can't find a molecule in blood serum that conveys something then it apparently doesn't exist!
And there's a long history of such cretins reaching all the way back to Skinner who also thought the human mind didn't exist and that homo sapiens were all animals that could be conditioned and had no beliefs or expectations to mess up the simple animal conditioning.
Now it's one thing for medical doctors and pharma researchers to believe the human mind doesn't exist, but psychologists are the very people who are supposed to study the human mind! How is it POSSIBLE for them to believe it doesn't exist?
Well, you see, there's another bunch of pathological lying shysters who have no credibility whatsoever beyond the victims of their cons. It's economists. Because economists have no credibility they eagerly mine physics for "inspiration". Really for language with the appropriate gravitas. Physics has deep (unearned) credentials and authority and the economists are perfectly eager to exploit these by appropriating terms from physics vocabulary to make it sound like they aren't hopeless retards but rather like they know what they're doing. Sound familiar?
Ding ding, yes indeed. It's EXACTLY what psychologists are doing by relying on fucking neuroscience! As if neuroscience had ANYTHING to say about the fucking human mind! You might as well ask chip designers how to design a fucking operating system! Hello, there's a reason why hardware designer and software designer (to say nothing of systems designer) are two entirely different jobs with ZERO intersection between them! Do we ask civil engineers where the best places are to put restaurants at highway rest stops? NO!
Because software designers have credibility. Because restaurant franchise executives have credibility. Because psychologists and economists have NO credibility! And it doesn't get any better as far as admissions of not having any credibility go than believing (or just forgetting) that the subject of your own field even exists.
The Demands of Justice
This lying cunt's entire career is a lie. She said so herself to anyone with the brains to hear it. Hell, I personally think she should die for the sole fact that she considers what every 12 year old knows (that emotions exist and that human belief and expectation matter to your emotional and physical state) to be some kind of revelation. Stupidity such as hers simply should not be allowed to exist.
(Incidentally, even 2 year olds know how to convert one emotion into another completely different emotion. Ever seen a toddler throw a temper tantrum after being frustrated? Emotion conversion in action! Yet this brainless retard of a psychologist thinks this is a revelation! Did she also think it was a revelation when someone explained that walking required you to put one foot in front of the other? Die brainless monkey, die!)
I reserve the same honor for every physicist over the 20th century who believed humans were exempt from the laws of physics. Yeah, they all deserve to die too. That's only, what, 95-98% of them? Experts who dilly-dally 50 years or more behind the research of their field should just be put to death. Niels Bohr for example was about 200 years behind his time. John Bell about 250.
It's the reason why mortality was invented after all, to cull the idiots who refused to keep up. So logically, when humanity discovers immortality, we should reimplement the death penalty. Either that or implement gag orders on idiots backed by electroshocks. I'm fine with cages too. Academics and others with PhDs deserve more prison time.
Yes I DO in fact believe that pathological liars should be treated EXACTLY THE SAME as psychopathic serial killers. Since minds are life forms, poisoning minds with lies should be treated exactly like poisoning human bodies. And how many minds does the typical PhD'd idiot poison with lies over their career? A thousand? Two? Lies hurt people just as much as bullets do.
