Welcome to the  mylk[][][] I believe stuff


 "How To Life"


I believe stuff, you believe stuff everybody believes stuff.... lots of stuff about lots of things. And what you believe matters, it really matters. Because what you believe effects what decisions you make, how you interact with the world,  how you see yourself in comparison to other people and therefor your place in it. It took me long time to realise that, not everybody sees the world through the same lens. Success or failure in life, however you choose to define it is less about talent or intelligence and more to do with what you believe about yourself and the internal narrative you spin in your head. You are what you believe. 



The solution to most of life's problems are incredibly simple ... the problem is simple does not mean the same thing as easy. Your life will improve by a 100 fold if you just stop trying to out think your problems and instead - JUST DO THE WORK


 If everything in your life stinks of shit, no matter who you are with or where you go and you just can't work out why  .... maybe it time to look at the bottom of your own shoe

Rules for Life No.1




  • Be independent  .... (You do you) 
  • don't be a victim 
  • You are not special
  • People treat you the way you allow them to treat you... 
  • Have boundaries 
  • Put your own oxygen mask on first 
  • Girls will shame beta for the same reasons they will respect alpha
  • Never be ashamed 
  • Someone has to be the grown up.
  • BE THE MAYOR ..... (RP)

 "Don't be afraid to polarise people"

"Your shits all retarded and you talk like a fag" Dr XXX

... but so is everyone else's, so don't sweat it. Be attractive, don't be unattractive !

Confidence is knowing you don;t really matter in the grand scheme of things, but neither does anyone else.

 MALE / FEMAL INTERATION .. ..( Relationship section ??)


  • Attraction is biological (chemical)  and emotional , not rational (mind/think). Girls are not deliberetly trying to hurt you. They genuinely want to be attracted to you (modern world). There life would be so much eastier if they did. But our attraction triggers (causes the tingles) was forged ... 10's / 100's of thousands of years ago 
Tribal / Feudal (TRIBE LEADER)


IF you are lacking confidence and terrible with women and you don't at least read what some of them say... you are missing out on the [Haynes manuel] To the human race.


" Dont discount good information (that maps to reality BETTER THAN FEMINISM/COSMO  



"Making decisions (whether the decision is important or inconsequential) takes significant mental energy".

Think about all the pressure you are putting on your wife or girlfriend by "Letting" them make all the decisions all the time ... It doesn't make them happy,(you are not giving them what they want, you are giving them all the stress and pressure) it makes them secretly hate you and resentful. LEARN TO MAKE DECISIONS (you don't have to be right all the time, you just have to be decisive. You will learn far/get far more from making a wrong decision than you ever could from deliberating something to death).



What we talk about, when we talk about Dread...





 Things mysteriously become incredibly easy, once the decision is taken away from you ...... Making the decision not to smoke (if you are a smoker) for 12 hours to prove you could is virtually impossible. Not smoking for 12 hours on a FLIGHT is piece of piss (in comparison) ... and hint, it isn't because you are being forced, it's because there is no decision to be made ... so you can't start that mental bargaining process ... there is no bargaining ... you just can't smoke .. full stop... suddenly becomes really easy

Human beings are not rational creatures...


Maser persuaders, Cant trust senses  




Stop thinking of time as money (even if it is) -  MDA


Increasing value breeds scarcity, even if it's just the perception of scarcity. So when we think of our time as money, our time gets more valuable-and more scarce. And instead of packing our schedules full of interesting experiences, we work longer to make more money. Reading for pleasure becomes wasteful. Sitting down to dinner with the family is an extravagance you have trouble justifying. The time we do take as leisure becomes more harried with worry we could be doing more. .....

"Don't be Raymond .... Nobody fucking loves Raymond"  


 If you put women on a pedestal 



 It is hardwired into the human genome. Human beings, both male and female, are hardwired to be more sympathetic to girls. Tribes that didn't protect their women via male self-sacrifice died out. - TRP

 Eggs are expensive and sperm is cheap. Every lost woman is a lethal blow to humanity's repopulation project but we only need one man for that job.


..... but you forget  the indelible stamp of our lowly origin at your peril .... 


 Who ever promised you Happiness ??  We are on a ball of rock spinning through empty space in a universe that doesn't give a fuck about you. Life for 99.9999 % has been nothing but a life and death struggle for survival ..... Why on earth do you think you have a right to be happy ? Or why would anyone even think that should be the default setting ...?

It's amazing what you can achieve (and pardoxicaly, how happy you become) when you give up this idea of wanting to be happy all the time 

 Assuming you should be happy all the time makes you miserable ... because you will constantly feel like a failure

 ---.> Derren Brown (experiencing self Vs the Remembering self (eg dan gilbert - kids)) 


 Never cheat on your wife / girlfriend (that's a cunts trick) ... but never ever tell them you would never cheat on them ... No women wants to be with a man no other women would want (pre-selection/want what others have got) ... it's why being (attached or) married instantly makes a man more attractive

What people want and what people think they want  (or what is good for them) are not often not the same thing



  1. LIFT  
  2. Be attractive, DON'T BE UNATTRACTIVE
  3. You do you ...  OWN YOUR SHIT!
  4. A > B transition
  5. Women can Logic ... but it is not there factory setting
  6. Power dynamics ....(there always is one)
  7. Women = Covert comm / Men = Overt ..... Both bad at the opposite 
  8. Cycle (womens sexual strategy - Micro) 
  9. Hypergamy (womens sexual strategy - Macro)
  10. Learn to pass Shit tests (fitness tests) & Comfort tests 
  11. Women can't actually empathise ... despite what you and they might think. 
  1. Soft nexts
  2. Be the MAYOR

·         Feminists claim they want equality but what they really want is power without responsibility. They desire both male and female privilege consolidated into one, thus upsetting the gender balance. They want the privileges of being women (privilege such as being economically provided for, getting opportunities based on their beauty and protection from physical harm by others) as well as male privilege (authority, respect for having a career, to not be judged so harshly based on appearance etc) which is neither pragmatic nor realistic, it ignores the biological basis for how the genders perceive each other in the ignorance that "everything is a social construct!" and we are mostly "the same" when quite evidently this is not the case.





"She is the ocean, and you are the rock, and the furies of her storms have no impact on you. You are unyielding."

If you're stoic, she gets to indulge her emotions with a safety net that stops her from self-destructing, and she will adore you for it. This is the masculine - feminine relationship.

What Really Makes Us Fat


We have more potential than our tiny minds can imagine. People rarely appreciate how amazing our ancestors were. We're all descended from an unbroken dynasty of heroic survivors stretching back millions of years in the hominid line alone. That legacy lives in our genes, stronger than ever, but waiting for the right environment to be expressed. Every living human is a unique gem that only needs primal polish to shine. That polishing can go on for a lifetime. Our dreams barely scratch the surface!

Homo Sapiens must fast. As omnivorous survivors, this is our most distinctive metabolic adaptation. It's no secret that ancient humans survived countless cycles of lean times and abundance. As J. Stanton writes, prey animals graze, but predators fast and gorge. Our bodies perform best under these conditions. This works on at least three levels: daily intermittent fasting (e.g. skipping breakfast), day-to-day calorie cycling (overfeeding after a vigorous hunt, underfeeding and resting on other days), and seasonal cycling (lots of calories during some months, not quite enough during others). What is the optimal frequency and magnitude? I'm doing my best to find out…

Willpower doesn't exist. This was a shocker for me, because conventional wisdom is that success, especially on a diet, comes from making a decision and just plain sticking to it. But when I honestly thought about it, none of my successes came from willpower. When I actually did try to rely on "willpower" it was almost always self-sabotaging. What works instead? Habit, distraction, playfulness, desperation, vanity, OCD, cognitive dissonance, endorphin addiction, the urge to disprove doubters, the desire to set a good example - these are a few of the tools that worked for me in various contexts. But willpower, what does that even mean? It's just an illusion. Like consciousness!

"In My experience

If i had to describe myself i would say first and foremost I am a humanist, secondly a skeptic, and thirdly a nobhead.

Basically the way I see it, at this moment right here, right now you and I are 2 of just under 7 billion little pink or brown squishy sentient sacks of water propped up by calcium sticks, spinning at 1,038 miles an hour on a massive ball of rock which is hurtling through space at 67,000 mph in an orbit around our sun. One rather average star in a galaxy of approximately 100 billion other stars in a universe with more than 200 billion galaxies each with about a 100 billions stars (give or take). And to all intents and purposes, this universe doesn't seem to give a fuck about us.

The chance that there is magic man in the sky who orchestrated it's creation are, to be polite, fucking slim at best. If you wanna believe that, then fine, whatever floats your boat. As far as I can see that's an unfalsifiable hypothesis and no more worthy of any more consideration than Bertrand Russel's - Invisible Celestial Teapot or the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But if you wanna go a step further and say there is a magic man in the sky who wrote or inspired a book, watches you while you sleep, gives you advice and guidance and has an bizarre and unhealthy obsession with what you do with you clothes off, and who you do it with. You are at best deluded and at worst insane. But still, whatever helps you get through the day. Doesn't really bother me too much if you wanna believe impossible nonsense for no good reason, fill your boots. Some people care whether stuffs true, some people would rather look at pictures of kittens, c'est la vie. But if you wanna start telling other people how they should live their lives based on what's written in a bronze age story book or because you think a magic man in the sky talks to you inside your head, well I'm sorry but you can shove your holy book up your arse and fuck off while you're doing it [][][]

I believe stuff [][][]

One of my favorite pass times is arguing with religious people on the internet, a strange hobby I know. One of the things I like about it is how easy it is. You get to feel superior and smug with surprisingly little effort on your part. Here are my vague incoherent musings on religion and other assorted woo.

Totally overlapping magisteria [][][]

Stephen J Gould is a famous American Evolutionary Biologist and also one of the most influential and widely read writers of popular science of his generation. In a 1997 essay and later in his book Rock of Ages (1999), Gould put forward what he described as "a blessedly simple and entirely conventional resolution to... the supposed conflict between science and religion. He stated that Religion & Science where "Non-Overlapping Majesteria". Or in other words religion and science dealt with different aspects of reality - the magisterium of science covers the empirical realm: what the Universe is made of (fact) and why does it work in this way (theory). The magisterium of religion extends over questions of ultimate meaning and moral value. Stephen j Gould was a brilliant man and a fantastic scholar............ but This is absolute bollox!

If only we did live in a world where religion was content to confine itself to metaphysical musings and speculation about the intangible and unfalsifiable nature of God. A world where new scientific discoveries were met with with open armed wonder and excitement, even where they contradict the revealed wisdom of bronze age story books and personal revelation. Unfortunately this is not the world we live in. The world we live in is one where Religion and Reality collide relentlessly in massive destructive and utterly pointless, explosive cluster fuck of misinformation, misunderstanding, stupidity, bigotry and death. Where self-important, self-aggrandizing and ultimately self appointed "experts" in the unknowable, claim to KNOW what no one possibly can know. Then proceed to tell the rest of us how to live our lives...........because an imaginary magic man in the sky talks to them inside their head. This is not a basis for respect, these people do not deserve to put on a pedestal and admired, these credulous imbeciles should be ridiculed and mocked or possibly given psychiatric help.

What's worse is where these supposedly "Non-Overlapping Majesteria" collide, a massive intelligence and rationality vacuum is created which sucks in all manner of ridiculous unfounded pseudo scientific bullshit such as psychics, homeopaths and new age gurus. These things are at best a silly and counter productive distraction from real progress and at their worst are just downright fucking dangerous.

"When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That is my religion" .......................Abraham Lincoln

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on"........Winston Churchill

"We are all star stuff"....[Carl Segan] 1934 - 1996

Nearly every single atom in our body was cooked up from Hydrogen in the bellies of stars billions of years ago. when matter first exploded out and then coalesced through the force of gravity over billions of years, giving rise to suns planets and solar systems, And on one small rock at the arse end of nowhere, at the edge of a rather ordinary galaxy, floating round a very ordinary sun. The first self replicating organic molecules were formed from natural chemical bonds. Over billions of years, through a process of replication, ''descent with modification', acted on by natural selection we have gone from the first multi-celled organisms to big, daft, hairless apes, that can send a man into space, build an iPhone, create an infrastructure to protect each other and bitch about the weather. Now that's fucking awesome.

If you wanna believe a white, 6ft 2, magic Jew got sent to be nailed to a stick 2000 years ago by his dad who was also him, in order to create a loophole in a system of his own creation, or that you were made from dirt or possibly a rib by speaking some magic words. Your welcome but fuck me that sounds dull and unimpressive compared to the truth.

Why does your God hate all the same people you do [][?][]

For many religious people, the popular question "What would Jesus do?" is essentially the same as "What would I do?" That's the message from an intriguing and controversial new study by Nicholas Epley from the University of Chicago. Through a combination of surveys, psychological manipulation and brain-scanning, he has found that when religious Americans try to infer the will of God, they mainly draw on their own personal beliefs.

Psychological studies have found that people are always a tad egocentric when considering other people's mindsets. They use their own beliefs as a starting point, which colours their final conclusions. Epley found that the same process happens, and then some, when people try and divine the mind of God. Their opinions on God's attitudes on important social issues closely mirror their own beliefs. If their own attitudes change, so do their perceptions of what God thinks.......................read rest of article

The Dunning-Kruger effect - why stupid people don't know it [][][]

The 2 consequences of incompetence for an individual are :-

  1. They make bad choices
  2. The don't realise they are making bad choices

The Dunning-Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to appreciate their mistakes.The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their own abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to the situation in which less competent people rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence. Competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. As Kruger and Dunning (1999) conclude, "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others"

Essentially what Dunning-Kruger discovered is :-

  • The same skills required for competence at a given task are the same skills required to evaluate that competence.
  • Some people are so fucking Dumb - that it is impossible for them to evaluate quite how fucking dumb they are.
Like Charles Darwin said "Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge".

Jesus nonced my dog [][][]

Why is it if someone claims that Jesus spoke to them and told them to feed the poor or start a ministry nobody would consider that odd or a cause for concern ? They'd probably have them on Breakfast News, sat on the couch with Sian & Bill fawning all over them as they enthral the nation with their amusing anecdote about how their religious experience changed their life and convinced them to be a better person. But if someone says that Jesus told them to kill their children or nonce their dog, then we as a society deem that they are obviously mental and need sectioning A.S.A.P.

Now take the emotion out of this scenario for a second, put aside any personal feelings of admiration and disgust you may have. Look at these two situations starkly and tell me what the difference is because I can't see one.

No one (and I mean NO ONE) even knows whether there is a God or not, let alone what that God thinks. Why everyone assumes that if there is a God he must be a nice one is fucking beyond me. All the evidence would point to the contrary. Other than your own personal feelings about the possible outcomes of these beliefs there really is no difference, the actual belief is the same. They both believe an invisible man in the sky is talking to them inside their head and telling them what to do, and doing anything, good or bad, because you think a bearded space fairy is transmitting psychic messages to you rather than a result of rational thought processes is fucking insane.

How to easily tell when someone is lying when you don't fully understand the science......

"Even if you don't understand every point being made, you can usually tell when someone directly challenges their opponents' key points. Similarly, you can tell when someone seems to be completely ignoring questions from the other side. Almost always, the side that responds to challenges is telling the truth, while the side that just repeats themselves and talks around the argument is not". .....RE -WORD & Examples (Creationists) Non stamp video

Anyone who does not let you ask questions may realize that they do not have any legitimate answers to offer. Anyone who is really interested in the facts will not only accept questions, but will even present the best arguments against their position and respond to them
