This is a list of principles I use. It's not all inclusive. It's not intended to be "The One True Path." It is simply some random observations or realizations that I've written down to help myself---to keep me going, sarging, closing---and thought I'd share with the rest of you. Note, most of it is biased by my own personal philosophies on god (I'm an Atheist), existence, life, ethics, etc.


L A W S


1) Nothing matters.
Everything is fated to end. Every system, every connection, every relationship runs its course. Misery comes when we can’t accept it. Everything must die. Things fall apart. Nothing escapes entropy. When I die, I will cease to exist. My brain, and hence my mind, will turn off permanently and all that "I" am will be deleted from the universe. My body will decay and molecules will decompose to be reabsorbed into other futile endeavors. Death is imminent, permanent, and complete. If existence is temporary and death permanent, nothing you do or experience holds any ultimate significance. It is all meaningless and without real value. 

2) Emotions are lies.
Emotions were developed by way of natural selection, a “dumb” process, in an entirely different environment in which we had entirely different needs, and have changed very little since. Their function was to dramatize reality and thus provoke us to specific action or inaction in primitive, pre-civilization nature to help us survive as individuals and proliferate as a species. They were useful once, the way the tail bone or the appendix were once useful, but are obsolete in modern civilization. Emotions provide little information about the real world. They make you nature's bitch, gushing within you, tossing you about like an open fire hose. They are the destroyers of self control and the catalysts for self doubt.

3) There are no obligations or entitlements.
We are inherently free and entitled to nothing. In the absence of answers, we romanticize things like honor, duty, right and wrong, and so on. These things are make believe. Their nonexistence in nature is evidence of their invalidity. You can do whatever you want, and accept the consequences on your terms, knowing that no one owes you anything either; not consideration, not respect, and not acceptance.

4) You are responsible for your own experience.
No one is accountable for your experience. Don't look to other people or to your environment to define your experiences or make them what you want to be. Take responsibility. Assume control and if you mess it all up at least it was you and not someone else.

5) You are not responsible for other people's emotions.
You have to allow people to take responsibility for their own experience. If people take offense to something you do, it doesn't make what you've done wrong, it only means that for whatever reason it's invoked a negative emotional response. You can't control what makes people feel. Do what you feel is appropriate, and apologize only when you've legitimately injured someone.

6) Social mistakes have no real consequences.
If you turn someone off, you may lose that chance at connection. So what? You've suffered no real injury... no real damage. There are billions of other chances at interaction. Billions. Take chances. Don't get anxious in the anticipation of mistakes. In fact, assume them. Assume you'll make them, and when you do, don't give a fuck. Just keep moving. Alphas don't judge their mistakes. They just correct them and keep moving.

7) People aren't special.
Stop placing so much value on other people. Girls aren't special. That super hot girl you've been eying for 20 minutes isn't special. She's just a person. A human. An organism. Her presence could easily be replaced with that of a hundred million other girls just like her. She is not special. She is not unique. None of us is so unique, despite what our feelings try to convince us. Don't let your emotions trick you into believing otherwise. No one is more inherently valuable than another. We all have innumerable imperfections. No matter the effort, everyone ends up in the same place. We're all just the same dying matter (don't worry, I'm not going to quote Fight Club). We'll all die and rot and cease to exist. No one matters. No one is significant. We are all awaiting deletion.

8) Everything is simple.
Complication is an illusion. Emotion makes us hallucinate complexity. Just because we don't have all the information doesn't mean things are complex. Everything is so simple. There is cause and effect... actions and reactions. 



T O O L S


Attitude

Detach: Disconnect your emotions from the object. Disconnect your emotions from the event. Just let go.

Accept: Accept all moments as the inevitable outcome of events. Be like the grass under the tree, accepting the leaves that fall as inevitable. 

Nonstick Mind: Imagine your mind is sealed in plastic wrap or armored in Teflon. Allow negativity to immediately slide right off of you, never sticking to you or sticking you in place.

Commit: Indulge in every moment without expectations, living for the experience rather than just the outcome. Life is every second. Every situation is a chance to live deeply. Commit to the moment.

Behavior

Be: Act as-if you already are exactly what you want to be. You simply pretend you have the behaviors of the person you want to be until, through repetition, you take on those behaviors.

Flow: Throw yourself into action without judgment or self-consciousness.

Move: Allow your body to move you mechanically through moments to which you are emotionally resistant. In an interaction, your body and mind play separate, yet cooperative roles.

Focus: Every effort should directly support your goals. Even the smallest action is an opportunity.

Action

Orchestrate: Observe and exploit your environment and those within it to setup the most optimal conditions to achieve your objectives.

Push: Always push push push the interaction forward toward your objective. (Forward stacking, kino escalation, compliance ladders)

Pull: Lead subjects down a path toward a new reality which you've created. (Frame work, Mirroring)

Disorient: Keep the subject's reality changing by shifting location (orientation, moving, bouncing), changing your energy (from calm and insightful to charismatic and powerful), modulating the quality of your voice (fast/slow, loud/quiet, soft/rough, etc), changing topics of discussion, etc.

who still calls them HB's ? Lol - noobs - This is guy has written down his map of where he is at right now - Everyone should do it atleast once to help it click into their reality. and most of his shit is spot on just written in a callous mannor. The thing about emotions is reffering to David Buss (evolutionary psychologist) - in the book "the dangerous passion"  How he talk about emotions becoming a guide to help us survive and reproduce - and how nowdays they are accurate - But not 100% because we have developed so fast. 

So Yeah this shit is gold.  Noobs can sit down now.

Dude i like what you say about non stickiness. I think thats the essence of masculine polarity. Read a david deida quote which said masculine polarity is consciousness, which manifests in the body as presence and direction. If you are conscious, then nothing sticks.

I love the haters. Romantics always see the truth as cold, negative, and robotic.

It's not cold or robotic, it's just not romantic. It's honest. It's real. That's because I'm a man. You should try it. It makes you feel good. Powerful. Strong like bull! Being a man is allllriiiight. It's the sh!t! I enjoy my emotions. I don't let them throw me about. I pick them up, look at them from different angles. Sometimes I enjoy them. Sometimes, I toss them aside with a giggle. Other times I crush them in my hand with an egomaniacal laugh.

I'm not an instant F-closer. My outer game system is pretty much classic MM. I full close only about one unique girl a month, and only after putting in a week or two of work, though I'm almost always sleeping with other girls I've already bedded as well. As a rule, I have at least a date a week (with a different girl), and I'm always working on Day 2s with multiple others (via phone, email, text.). I put in the work. It's slowly requiring less work.

Figure out what your axioms are. Write them down. Then, cut out all of the romantic bullsh!t. Pare them down. Get them bare. Then, follow them. Don't compromise them. Be resolute. "I will not get hung up on this one hot chick." "I will not get hung up on this anxious reaction I'm having." "I will not worry about saying the wrong thing." Outer game is fluid. Sometimes you have to adapt and break your own rules. Inner game is not. Figure out what your inner game principles are and get fundamentalist about them.

If nothing matters then why do we do anything?

This defeats the point of having a purpose.

Milking our egos?

There is no possible way to 100% know that there is no purpose. Reason all you want but our human brains are not limitless. The universe itself exceeds our ability to understand. We are small things.

Just making discussion. No harm intended.
