Why do some people like to get to personally know some baristas at Starbucks? In some of those locations, just wait like three years and it would be a completely different staff. Nothing is ever permanent. Welcome to The Black Pill.

What if most of them end up voting Democrat?

Automation is here. I just went to a newly renovated McDonald’s where they had two computer screens for you to place your order and an employee directing you to use it. They had fewer cashier boxes as well as cashiers. It looked like there were fewer employees too. I’ve noticed the same thing with some banking branches too like Bank of America and Wells Fargo where not only do they have ATMs on the outside but also on the inside and an employee directing you to use it instead of waiting in line for a bank teller via a real human.

Even if you don’t believe in Evolutionary Psychology, Evolutionary Biology, Sociobiology, Evolutionary Theory, or just Evolution in general, there is still a common theme(s) in terms of mate selection and mate attraction across virtually all species and/or life-forms. Even if humans were a separate species from monkeys or apes, their current temperament and/or behavioral tendencies is still founded upon the Evolution of their own kind. Evolution is a real phenomenon just that it is not as fast as you may think or that the physical appearance of man (for example) doesn’t change or changes very little. I do believe that cognition and psychology of man changes much faster than the physical appearance or physical apparatus of man (or woman). Regardless as to the specifics of Evolution whether it be mental or physical, you cannot deny its very existence and those who do are just plain stupid. You can talk about degeneration and stuff but I believe that is the area where there are some unknowns, unseens, or complex phenomena (or perhaps mysterious) where words cannot accurately explain.

Correlation does not imply causation and so Biological Degeneration does not necessarily equate to Psychological Degeneration. While two things may be connected, it is possible that they could also be disconnected as well.

The loss of knowledge from one person to another or from one generation to the next does not necessarily mean that the knowledge is completely lost. In fact, if memory serves me correctly, I might have talked about the loss of knowledge when talking about the state of non-omniscience in some other place having to do with INTJs. This is because through randomness and/or unpredictability, someone somewhere in subsequent generations (or the future) is able to intuitively tap into difficult-to-understand knowledge. Perhaps this is where MBTI plays a critical role especially if one understands the true percentage of certain MBTI types in understanding the rarity of the INxx type where perhaps not only are they able to tap into esoteric knowledge but also come up with a superior version of it.

Ironically, in terms of the spirit realm, if I were to look from the perspective of the internal viewpoint of the God Source, there is indeed loss of knowledge despite what the very same folks who believe in the internal perspective of the non-existence of an outside Creator would say, because the collective rules over the individual, in that say for example, an individual soul experiences something really bad and so the collective Oversoul will eventually tell that particular individual to get over it or that they will grow tiresome of a particular individual’s inability to get past their own trauma. That is precisely where the loss of knowledge (or experience) is, being that of the individual, and so this too, is exactly why I don’t buy the whole everything is One nonsense.

This could then raise the question of omniscience and so I don’t believe whether one sees God as being internal or external, omniscience doesn’t exist. Of course, if the external Creator is the true case, then I would still believe this outside Creator to be more knowledgeable and “omniscient” than the “collective Source.” Yet interestingly, an invisible external God (if one existed) could still be labeled as being Omniscient when one factors in the randomness I mentioned earlier in that perhaps a particular individual is “inspired” (or comes into contact regardless if they’re conscious or not) by this Unseen God, all really, really fascinating.

Funnily enough, Reality isn't trying to sell you anything, or get you to "buy it".
When you can grasp this slippery thing that illustrates to you your own supreme lack of importance, you may come to an insight into what "All is One" actually means.
It is in no way whatsoever an intellectual exercise; more like inhaling a lungful of oxygen in preference to slow asphyxiation.

Yeah, and so for some people, it's rap music, being a degenerate, and taking the whole society (perhaps civilization) down with them.
