Don’t Be Shy
Humans have a very ancient, “frame battle” instinct.
All mammals fight over territory.
Whoever controls the most territory, gets the most food.
Whoever gets the most food, can have the most kids.
One way to look at mammals is inter-generational hierarchy contest.
Even if a group of mammals started out as purely egalitarian, they would end up in a hierarch distribution.
Suppose you start on year zero.
Everybody ONLY wants to get enough to get one wife and have three kids.
Of whatever animal we are talking about.
But then there is a mutant.
This guys wants MORE territory than everybody else.
This get GETS more territory than everybody else.
This allows him to have MORE kids than everybody else.
And all those kids have his HIERARCHY DOMINATION instinct.
Winner Takes All
And each of his kids battle each other for hierarchy supremacy.
And each one of those winners has MORE KIDS than everybody else.
A mutant territorial type would OUT POPULATE the egalitarian types.
But the other way?
A egalitarian type who only wants enough for a wife and a couple of kids would NEVER out-populate a territorial type.
Mother Nature never promised she’d be fair or nice.
This is why they call it “survival of the fittest.”
Not survival of the nicest or survival of the fairest.
And fittest is a very, very neutral word for what is always happening.
A vicious, never ending battle for hierarchical superiority.
In in humans, from inside our own brains and how we interact with others, this comes across as frame battles.
Master Of Opinions
Whatever human, way back in the day, presented their ideas the best, AND those ideas actually helped out everybody, that dude would be the alpha.
The unanimously agreed upon alpha.
Everybody would acknowledge that dude was the best at getting food for everybody.
Today, it’s not nearly as constrained.
Which means idea contests or frame battles happen in a very unconstrained context.
There is no way to PROVE, one way or the other, whose idea really IS the best.
Only who PRESENTS their idea with the most confidence.
Whoever BELIEVES their idea is the best.
This is the secret of leading a cult to mass suicide.
The cult leader has absolutely ridiculous ideas.
But because they BELIEVE in them so strongly, other people do also.
But you can do the same.
Not like a modern cult nutjob, but like a widely appreciated ancient alpha.
One, create a clear purpose for your life.
Two, pre-frame reality so you are always looking for ways to get CLOSER to your purpose.
Three, be as flexible as you can in how you DEFINE the events that happen, to help you get even closer.
Do this and you’ll have the strongest, most compelling frame ANYBODY has ever seen.
