Let’s assume that there exists a purpose to make a spare part than can be self-installed to be bought by certain individual and that spare part will break down precisely at 11 AM next Wednesday. For such to become possible skillsets of multiple participants are required to be utilized. Expertise is a big plus.

Safety reasons are the main concern why it takes longer for some commodities to get within reach of customers, but quality assurance methods, which manufacturer applies to manufacturing processes can not absolutely guarantee that an end product couldn’t still be different from what customer thought he…


Nowadays harassment (from sophisticated to rough) that requires certain constant effort from participants is often about learning how a target person react to certain kind of harassment, how does it affect to his future behaviour and especially, getting doubtless know-how about what methods and techniques most certainly produce certain results.

Target person might intuitively notice that he is being harassed:

- his body and mind get burdened daily or almost daily in unpleasant ways causing his short memory and other executive functions to become momentarily defective
- he gets less enjoyment from daily activities (when walking outside, when having conversations with…


a) He is in constant ”rebellion” against language (is alert for clumsiness and preciseness of usage of words and used expressions).

b) Is constantly exposed to incoherance of things on high conceptual level (e.g. ”beautiful people aren’t mean.. no, wait.. they are.. no, wait.. they aren’t).

c) People, who are authoritative to him ruin impression of their trustfulness (e.g. parents and experts providing therapy-like services).

d) He can’t keep his different roles ”clean” as other people intentionally produce similar, irritating stimulation no matter what role he is currently using and what is the current context.

e) It often happens that…


Massacres are often explained by referring to copycatting and mental problems, but never is such possibility presented that massacres could actually be caused by people, who have systemically re-programmed someone’s mind and irritated him so badly that he decided that massacre is what he wants to do. At that point he might not be fully able to consider his actions and there might have been underlying reasons for why he has been more affectable than some others, but nevertheless his mental state certainly wouldn’t explain everything.

Re-programming of mind doesn’t refer to any kind of cliche in the movies like…


What happens to all that information and observations, what e.g. journalists and photographers gather and store? Will the most usable material always become perceivable by readers and viewers? What here means ”the most usable material”? Does it mean that reader/viewer gets to sneer or smile even once or that he will think that ”broadness and level of details is exactly what I would have asked them to aim at so that I can make up my own opinion about the subject”?

If phone conversation lasted for almost 20 minutes and eventually there is only a short comment like ”In my…


You have probably felt a connection between why you sometimes choose to use an uncommon word — for you — and with what you think a moment later. You might intuitively sense that there might be a logical explanation behind it — on contrary of being mystical — but it doesn’t seem to be within your grasp.

In conversations understanding that connection will highly probably take longer than finishing current sentence as in those situations there is usually lot of other things to think about. Understanding that connection is probably easiest, when the mind is warming up to the idea…


Two amygdalas in brains’ temporal lobes don’t react just to ”real” danger like cars in an asphalt jungle as they can also get activated via stress by a) generally rather meaningless sound in low volume, which has earlier been conditioned to pain and b) stimulus that is related to past emotional meaning. Amygdalas react to stress leading effectively to raising of the levels of neurotransmitter glutamine and — via subprocesses — releasing of cortisol hormone to the blood circulation for spreading to organs and tissues of the body.

Cortisol releasing process:

1) neurons of hypothalamus make pituitary gland to release…


It is quite typical for some people to improve their chances by undermining those of others. It is less burdening for one’s own mind than learning something completely new and becoming better that way, isn’t it? One way to distinguish some other from oneself is to ”fill the area” in that someone’s mind that is ”reserved” for something that he is about to become familiar with or might be interested about later in the future with rubbish.

Practically this requires that

a) target person must actively deal with choosen subject in a way that creates new thoughts and connects with…


Some regularities, patterns and templates are never learned ”accidently”. It is required to give oneself some time to really understand them and in some cases even notice their existence. E.g. Sudoku game becomes a lot faster to finish after its rules get learned well as that allows one to know how to look at the numbers to see patterns and opportunities. Just by living out there in the world glancing sceneries, walking in the street and having conversations about other matters wouldn’t aid much in learning Sudoku.

Even when it takes only few minutes to understand the basic ideas behind…


It is possible to build artificial relationships to someone’s mind targeting anything living or non-living without that he himself would have pursued such. It is easiest to arrange this, if that something don’t became more familiar with time and one can’t or won’t understand it profoundly. E.g. relationship to a teacher can stay similar for years, but when he finally tells a joke of some sort, everything suddenly changes. Building customized impression, which would be meant for one person’s mind only and which would arise strong emotions and would be done by multiple participants, may stay as some kind of…
