One of the biggest problems of human brains is how we think about cause and effect.
The phrase, “post hoc, ergo proctor hoc” is an ancient phrase.
Since it’s in Latin, it’s been around since the Roman Empire.
And since the Roman Empire copied a lot of philosophy from the Greeks, that phrase is probably the then “latest” iteration of an ancient understanding.
What does it mean?
After this, therefore, because of this.
We see two things happening one after the other, and we assume the first thing CAUSED the second thing.
Even the word “because” is almost like a magic brain fade of persuasion.
The old experiment was a lady waiting in line to make copies.
She said “can I cut in line?”
Everybody said no.
Then she said, “can I cut in line BECAUSE my car is parked in the red.”
A legitimate reason.
A few people said yes.
But then she said:
“can I cut in line BECAUSE I need to make copies.”
An absolutely silly reason.
People STILL let her cut in line.
Our hopeless brains turn to MUSH whenever people deliberately use “pseudo logic.”
Socrates absolutely HATED the sophists.
The sophists were dudes who taught rhetoric.
The art if “making a weak argument strong, and a strong argument weak.”
Socrates was only interesting in TRUTH.
Things that could be proven.
Which made him a kind of an anti-party DICK.
All these dudes would be walking around thinking they had some FANTASTIC ideas and opinions.
But one conversation with Socrates would PROVE all their beloved ideas were wrong.
What’s this got to do with anything?
Explaining things logically is useless.
Especially if the thing you want is based in any way on emotions.
Selling real estate through logic is useless.
Building attraction through logic is useless.
You need FEELINGS.
This is where another meta-brain-fade confusion bomb comes into the picture.
You watch a guy go from first contact with a lady to mutual gazes of pure love.
And you describe each process.
And you come up with a systematic “method” of “building attraction.”
But you can ONLY see the outside.
And this brings up another logical error.
That descriptions are casual.
Like you watched him create “rapport.”
You watched him create “mirroring and matching rapport.”
You watched him and her matching their facial expressions.
Now for the money question.
Chicken Or Egg
Is this rapport a cause, or is this rapport and effect?
An effect of a much, much deeper, emotional connection.
One that is nearly always subconscious?
And if you ONLY focus on that surface level, observable “effect” the mirroring and matching, you’re missing the whole point.
What’s the real point?
The deeper point?
The one thing that actually DOES build attraction?
