For an extended period of time – I have been defective a propos my theory on psychopaths. My expertise lay elsewhere – and it is merely of personal interest that I took this upon me. However – I believe I have achieved the intended result [Proving that psychopaths really are much greater than the /norm/]. The purpose of this thread: The purpose is clear: To find flaws in my theory, for my part: I will propose a minimum amount of theory (which should be enough to instigate contradiction) I beg of you: Please be analytical and not emotional as this is fundamental. I will take every argument as an entity (which will result in philosophical subdivisions). Why this forum: This forum deals with emotional issues – The psychopath by definition is defined as someone who lacks the ability to feel emotions. (Not by birth, psychopathic behavior is developed). Let me first discuss the disorder: Many people view psychopaths as serial killers, and many are – but the graph – Psychopaths that commit violent acts vs. Psychopaths that don’t commit violent acts shows clearly that the latter out numbers the former a thousand to one. Why is it a disorder: Because it is not shared by the majority. So I view the /disorder/ as: The lack of emotions. Now the real question becomes: Is this bad? Actually, the term /bad/ is a very religious term and I will refrain from using it. We aren’t born with knowledge (Knowledge is information, information needs definitions, definitions need samples, samples need sensors – and sensors are not mentally active until after we are born (except for the ear, but it is not connected to the mind till after birth)). With no information from birth; it is impossible to judge anything – killing and so forth. That will make stupid arguments like: We have a right to life (which is made up by humans, and contradicted by suicide) superfluous. A better approach might be: Killing causes unknown result for the future if such a thing can be comprehended (the future – purpose of religion). Emotions really are unstable, they are random, sporadic – and because of this, time is wasted; time is not merciful and your value surely is degrading by time. However; Emotions really have great uses too; For example, it is a great motivator. Here is what should happen: People should first set logical basis and then emotional stimulation. Here is what is happening: People are setting emotional basis, and logical stimulation. For this: their basis is sporadic, and can be broken. (As per tendency) The psychopath, at his current state (may not have formerly suffered from this /disorder/) Will always set logical basis first, because that is the only thing he/she can set. For that: they are more sufficient, better thinkers, stronger and waste less time on emotional issues. For my part: I really feel this person is superior. It is clear to me the logical way is better. Better by definition is striving by instincts(nothing that knowledge provided us with).
