Rewiring Our Brains to Combat Hate-Think

Recommended Posts

The Jews are already inside your head, thinking your thoughts for you.

Neuroplasticity is one of those areas of medical research which initially seems benign and actually of benefit to people but on closer inspection its implications become horrifying, lets take a look at what it actually is:

Neuroplasticity, also known as brain plasticity, is an umbrella term that describes lasting change to the brain throughout an animal’s life course. The term gained prominence in the latter half of the 20th century, when new research[1] showed many aspects of the brain remain changeable (or “plastic”) even into adulthood.[2] This notion contrasts with the previous scientific consensus that the brain develops during a critical period in early childhood, then remains relatively unchangeable (or “static”) afterward.[3]

One of the fundamental principles of how neuroplasticity functions is linked to the concept of synaptic pruning, the idea that individual connections within the brain are constantly being removed or recreated, largely dependent upon how they are used. This concept is captured in the aphorism, “neurons that fire together, wire together”/”neurons that fire apart, wire apart,” summarizing Hebbian theory. If there are two nearby neurons that often produce an impulse simultaneously, their cortical maps may become one. This idea also works in the opposite way, i.e. that neurons which do not regularly produce simultaneous impulses will form different maps.

So in theory the brain can be altered by repetition, an example of this might be a morbidly obese woman who, when feeling the desire to eat yet another cake, instead concentrates on the positives of not eating the cake, such as losing some weight. The neurons and synapses which tell her to eat the cake will eventually weaken and the areas of her brain telling her that she will look great thinner will strengthen.

Another example might be a right-handed man who loses his right hand in an accident, through repetition the parts of his brain which make him right handed will weaken and die off, the previously weak parts of his brain which would enable him to be left handed strengthened, and so on.

Neuroplasticity, then, is the study of how brainwashing can be achieved, though of course, people far more qualified than I would balk at the use of such language but that, in effect, is what it is, even if its application is benign. And lets not be coy, if Nationalists had cultural and political hegemony we would teach our boys to be proud and strong, to love and protect their people against the ((evils)) of the world, we would teach our girls to be feminine and proud mothers and home makers.

But we do not have political and cultural hegemony, people like this guy do:


Forest Kentwell recently wrote an article for an American student site called ”Let’s rewrite history to leave our cissexist, imperialist, and racist world in the past”. And Forest thinks neuroplasticity can achieve this:

This mythic hypocrisy that they created has grown and become entrenched in our collective brain. So when we as scholars unequivocally accept the ‘past’ that has been written through the eyes of white, patriarchal males, we are bringing that past into our present and future. Historians have never been objective, passive observers of culture. “History” departments fly in the face of neuroplasticity, attempting to display an objective or ‘True’ version of the world that does not exist, which ignores their foundational biases.

The truth is, as long as we have departments like ‘Africana Studies’ and ‘Feminist/Queer’ Theory, classical “History” should be referred to as “Patriarchal, (White-European) Male Studies,” since it almost exclusively draws from those sources and viewpoints With this in mind I ask: How can colleges and universities embrace neuroplasticity? “You cannot be neutral on a moving train,” Howard Zinn famously stated. The train is our culture and it is profoundly affecting us.

I now propose that scholars and their students once again become active participants in our education dialogue. We must admit that words hold great power, that education is a reproduction of the past, and that that past creates the world around us and our future. By seemingly ‘passively’ absorbing what we are taught, we are actually actively enabling the current world order designed around imperialism, white supremacy, capitalism, ableism, and a cissexist heteropatriarchy.

There is nothing intrinsic or inherent about our way of life. I propose here that we re-tell ourselves history. It is just a myth. A story, fleeting in the wind, but also a rock to which we cling. If we truly want to change the future we must change the perceived ‘historical’ past, because these cultural mythologies mold our brains and perspectives. This is why academics and higher education professionals must join the public sphere in acting creatively and strategically with the myths that will form our futures. cont
