Just going on the reasoning that if a person or animal's stem cell production can be reduced by causing them to despair, then stem cell production must be supported by some kind of internal mechanism (like recognition of potential, or the anticipation of some kind of gain). Otherwise, creatures would die from any insult (let alone being zapped with electric current or placed in a tank of deep water w/ no way out). So here's a list of probable stem cell producing pastimes:

  • Food
  • Sex
  • Chocolate
  • Sleep (knits up the raveled sleeve of care)
  • Yoga
  • Jogging
  • Sky diving
  • Creating art
  • Helping others
  • Watching children play
  • Looking at the horizon
  • Daydreaming
  • Hunting & Fishing
  • "To drive before me the wailing wives and concubines of my enemies naked through the streets, for the review of my troops" (recommended by Gengis Khan)
  • Tai-Chi

  • Note that they all have potential in common, are voluntary & not compelled, and are fun or gratifying somehow. That Gengis should advise tormenting others as a type of enjoyment shows Psi-ops goes way back, like the Nazi SS it's existence demoralizes opposition. I'd also like to include drugs on the list, but that recommendation should be tempered a bit:

    Dope makes things interesting, and allows several trains of thought to be held simultaneously (however fleetingly). That aspect (assuming something unproven is actual fact to see if it fits evidence) when carried to maturity, is indistinguishable from psychosis because ones judgments are based on a theoretical model instead of evidence supported by fact. I mean like even if aliens or the devil DOES control the Church and the Republican party, it's still psychopathic behavior, you'll freak people out, become a homeless nutcase, and live in a Van. Or else go around preaching the word of god. The net result is missing teeth & reduced stem cell production. So any recommendation of drug usage stops before it gets that far. Try the other stuff on the list first. (but maybe not Gengis's advice)

    Some studies on schizophrenia (they're endless) indicate almost everyone has some kind of genetic tendency. One of the more recent connects schizophrenia with psychosomatic repression of stem cell production for any reason (like social isolation, some kind of adverse personal image, etc). Just on the surface, that looks like a reverse of the placebo effect, which would make it an EVIL PLACEBO..

    As a long time schizophrenic, the antidote I recommend is aspirin and a glass of water, maybe prayer, or perhaps a bath in the blood of sacrificed innocents. Anything works really, what's needed is belief in the spell. The spell itself is a ceremonial pathway to social acceptability. You have to clear it with the world somehow though, because it needs some kind of historic & etiological validation to be recognizable as a spell & you can't just ask around because someone will want to study you (which can get really weird), because some people are actually paid to come up w/ novel explanations for ordinary coping. Yes folks, ordinary coping sometimes involves carrying on imaginary arguments w/ people in other cars while driving down the freeway, and/or walking around your bed 3x reciting "Begone, begone, begone ...". To come up w/ those novel explanations, a student of desperate people must assume an objective position, which just doesn't exist. Like: "what would real space aliens think of the way earth humans act?" well, lets put ourselves in the alien's shoes ... (they're sure to have feet).

    The point is, paid observers have to claim objectivity as self defense, so that madmen will stay in the bottle, socially and intellectually impotent, and actively repressing their stem cell production for the benefit of priests, psychologists, politicians, talk show hosts, and intellectual bullies everywhere. It's what we, and probably every other animal, does. So how does one survive the enforced ennui? Well sex pops to mind. lay it on the bully & they have to give up their "objectivity", it validates equality (unless they kill you). If that's not an option, probably drugs, or jogging.

    In this person's opinion, objectivity is a social convenience that allows group focus, but it's basically an illusion and an excuse for elitism.

    Like the minimum age of consent for sex, how about a minimum age of consent for religion.
