There's what I like to call the “military barracks brain.” Then there's the “how can I make my people great” brain. Then there's the “free brain.”

All three types of brains have their advantages and their disadvantages. But let's define them briefly, and look at their advantages and disadvantages.

brai00003_400The military barracks brain

In militarized organizations and societies, you will develop the kind of brain that does two things. First you will fight a lot. Second, you will be very careful not to offend people up there in the hierarchy.

So the militarized brain is an anxious brain. It is also a violent brain. The militarized brain controls subordinates and obeys superiors.

In militarized societies, the outsider is the enemy. There are no friends among outsiders. So the militarized brain tries to find vicious ways to defeat the outsider or the enemy. That can include psychological warfare. That can include physical warfare. And that can include psychological or physical fights.

So the militarized brain trains to fight enemies. And to offend enemies.

The militarized brain also controls subordinates. So the militarized brain assumes subordinates will serve them, and the militarized brain expects to be served very well by subordinates, and will otherwise punish subordinates.

The militarized brain also tries hard not to offend superiors. That can mean paying attention to minute details that superiors could notice and interpret as a challenge to authority.

The disadvantage of the militarized brain: it tends to be overflooded with blood flows due to a permanent state of anxiety. So in the long run, it can develop speech pathologies (incomprehensible speech, or long silences). It can also develop movement coordination disorders due to the constant stress and panic, and muscle atrophy. And it can also be prone to eating disorders, usually anorexia. And it tends to be sleep deprived and tend to have trouble falling asleep. So it can be clumsy. That's a good cocktail for heart disease and heart attacks.

The tribal brain (or how can I make my people great? Brain).

This brain daydreams a lot. And tells a lot of stories that are not always true, but are meant to make you look good.

This brain views outsiders as “non-persons” and insiders as “people with obligations.” That is this brain will tend to be very anxious and shy around outsiders. But will tend to push insiders to give everything they have to make the tribe and clan look good.

So this brain will take whatever it can, and will view all social property as potentially his or hers. This means this brain will tend to make calculations on how to take the cousin's money, the friend's money, the friend's property, all that in the name of “what's the tribe's is ours, not yours.”

This brain makes a constant effort to look good, and is constantly hunting for food, money and property of other people, without making efforts to earn it.

This brain can be frustrated by not owning vast sums of money or property, which can lead to depression and social withdrawal. This brain also believes that you never have enough food or money, which tends to lead to binge eating and binge consumption, which can lead to bulimia, obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

This brain can also organize around the tribe, meaning it is constantly improvising. Constant improvisation leads to disorganized hygiene and meal patterns, and that can lead to cancerous tumors to grow.

The free brain

The free brain believes in no restrictions. It speaks its mind, behaves freely, eats what it wants, engages in any activity it wants.

But the free brain is also a selfish brain. It does not share, and believes that “you have to work to get what you want.”

So the free brain can be a disoriented brain, because while it is free to do what it wants, it has to earn a living to act freely.

So the free brain can be prone to depression if its freedom is impaired, or if freedom is denied.

The free brain is also prone to illnesses related to freedom of action, such as obesity, STDs, Vds and liver problems, high cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease.

The free brain can also have addiction problems that harm or impair their ability to make a living and sustain their addictions.

And the free brain can be a lonely brain, because there is no strong tribal or family membership, which can lead to degenerative brain diseases, namely dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

But the free brain is a solitary brain. Unlike the militarized brain or the tribal brain, the free brain tends not to look for connections with other people, and does not believe in obligations for other people.

Lack of social obligations in the free brain can lead to complicated family and social structures, when the tribal brain and the militarized brain believes in more rigid family and social structures.

To finish:

-Militarized brains are more likely to develop “Sadistic personality disorder” that is a personality disorder where they torture and humiliate people and enjoy doing that.

-Tribal brains are more likely to develop “narcissistic personality disorder” which is a personality disorder where they tell grandiose stories about their achievements, when they have no achievements.

-Free brains are more likely to develop “social anxiety disorder” where they tend to avoid people to the point of spending day in and day out alone.
