Suggested title : Alpha Male protecting pack-thought
Begin: Last time I mentioned that there was a distinct and exact parallel reflected in the observed behavior of a hero and one who has a more enlightened understanding of life. (ex. does not talk about himself, does not steal etc.) When qualities of a hero are observed in a leader or a warrior king, it is a reflection of how they see and understand life. The leader or warrior king can at some point merge in the external world.
These hero warriors, kings, leaders, and adventurer’s actions seem to come natural. They do not attack or kill children. They are brave and fair. They let others surrender with dignity. But being a hero is not about being awake. Its is about how you treat people. Its all observed behavior. Considering the alpha male in the hero model its just not about brute strength and cunning.
05:00 Another aspect I find of interest is to picture the alpha male wolf. (There are alpha females also.) An alpha male wolf is usually out front of the pack. If the pack senses danger the pack stops and when the alpha male turns around he is all by his lonesome. Its hormonal to be an alpha dog and he is the one who runs out front to check for danger.
For example the pack may stumble onto another pack while out looking for food. The two alpha males will check each other out. Sometimes there is a skirmish. Sometimes its just a whole lot of smelling and one of the alpha males will submit. “Something goes on” (maybe it is the aroma of hormones) a communication of sorts, an aroma of fear possibly and one of the alpha male wolves will submit.
The pack can observe and know if their alpha male has submitted or not. I guess the whole pack could be involved but usually its is just the alpha male. I see this as a reflection of what goes on in life. Historically two leaders could fight instead of two armies. Two kings could send their best warriors to fight and one of the warriors would either submit or die and that would be the end of it for that day.
10:00 As always I see everything that goes on in human life as a metaphor or better yet an external reflection of what goes on in the human mind. I can look anywhere and see it. For example human’s electing a king is an absolute reflection of what goes on in the the part of the brain that produces thought. I am saying the part of the brain that produces thought has an alpha male. Now back to the story.
Picture the two alpha males wolves rushing out to possibly a potentially dangerous conflict. They sniff around. They pose and snarl. Their packs are behind them and the pack can also see and smell. I am assuming you can see their is some sort of communication going on and when one of the alpha males wolves submits and withdraws – the other wolf knows he has won.
The communication that went on between the two alpha wolves at the instant of submission – the pack (outsiders) did not know about. And it is truthful to say that it was only the alpha wolf that submitted who knew what was communicated when he submitted. Now picture two alpha male king warriors. And to get the most out of this keep juxtaposing the pictures of the three examples.
(Two alpha male wolves, Two warrior kings, The great plane of human consciousness where something similar goes on – though the last one is hard to picture.)
15:00 The communications by the alpha male wolves are hormonal, instinctive, and non verbal. The second picture of the two alpha male warrior kings possibly meeting on a great field with armies at the ready. (I have no history to back this up – lets suppose there is no couriers or emails involved.) And as outsiders we can see them as humans communicating. (Same way the pack sees the pack leader communicating)
As humans there may not be a whole lot of smelling going on but we may be able to see some body language as the two warrior alpha male kings meet. (posing, moving lips) And we assume they are talking – singular to humans. Its very likely from the pack’s view (outsiders view) one of the Alpha male warrior kings will submit. (maybe a slouch) And the people (outsiders) will know what happened.
In some way one of the warrior kings talked the other warrior king out of it. But who really knows what was said. And a true warrior king (brave and fair, lets others surrender with dignity, does not brag) would not tell anyone. And pushing the metaphor further if the relationship is “true and right” between the king and the people, the people would not ask. They would respect the king too much to ask and would not want to know.
20:00 In the external world of warrior leaders (Charlemagne, Caesar, etc.) at a time of celebration of victory for the people no sober citizen would ask a warrior leader how he pulled off the victory. I picture the same thing going on in the human brain. That there is some part of the brain that acts like the alpha male and it protects us. But from what? Minimally its the out of control daydreams and flow of automatic thoughts.
I say that what’s been called being more awake is that on the great plain of human consciousness you have an alpha male warrior king part of the brain that protects another part of the brain. The alpha male part of the brain protects the common populous of consciousness. Its the king bird that protects the flock. (Sufi Parliament story) The alpha male part of the brain has more of an understanding of what life is about.
And this alpha male part of the brain just goes about its business and trying to explain it is foolish. From another view eventually you do not even ask. (Why did I change this? Why do I do so and so.?) It just comes natural. Another level – children never ask their parents “How come your my parents?” I say there is a hierarchy in the part of the brain that produces thought that no one takes specific note – “What’s going on?”
25:00 Even people with “hands on” experience looking at the part of the brain that produces thought do not take specific note “What’s going on?” Some folks look at it from the implausible to the foolish. (ex. gift from God, the straightening out of some problem, a correction of consciousness) I say the common populous of consciousness is being protected by an alpha male part of the brain.
Its not like you are being assaulted by anyone else. Maybe old man death, but if death is inevitable you probably should not call it an assault. The assault is in your brain. (Daydreaming, the automatic flow of thoughts, etc.) Being sick is just old man death calling. Its not like you can be protected physically from anything. You are being protected by an alpha male piece of consciousness and the rest of the brain does not ask “How do you do it?”
Jan’s Posted Daily Fresh Real News
May 14, 2001.
While the popular image of a person who
has purportedly achieved a non standard state of mind,
(mystics, in common parlance),
runs from the fanciful & foolish,
to the grotesque & impossible,
what goes unnoticed is their radical similarity to mankind’s well acceptable picture of the
down-to-earth, non metaphysical Hero,
(both historical & fictional):
the Great Warrior; the Wise King;
figures whose behavior stood them strikingly apart from the ordinary person.
In all cultures, from all eras,
mens images of the Secular-Hero
are given characteristics which are the same as are natural for a person who has achieved a Comprehension-of-life
with which men are not naturally born.
The cellular activity that produces mans consciousness everywhere
has caused him to attribute certain traits to the
Temporal-Hero which instantly strike everyone everywhere as being unquestionably correct.
They can be counted as numerous,
but are consistently centered around a core few,
several of which at random will herein be used as examples.
A Secular-Hero is never pictured as
whining or complaining;
from an ancient Greek warrior
to a contemporary lead character in a sci-fi movie,
no one even considers the possibility that the hero,
in the midst of his adventures,
will begin to whine about all of the betrayals,
and hardships he has been forced to suffer;
even has it been so —
it is literally inconceivable that the hero would
make any comment thereon.
If the Warrior-Hero is physically wounded —
he does not cry, nor even mention it.
This is not some misplaced, testosterone-driven,
strictly male bravado,
it is a cellular-sourced, archetypical reflection in all peoples minds of what a man with an expanded comprehension-of-life would be like.
Suffering-in-silence is not the point;
the understanding that suffering is an illusion — is.
The Mundane Hero does not whine & complain because the under-conscious activity in his brain that produces what is seen to be his individual personality
makes him behave in such a way,
while the unseen Man-Of-Comprehension does not do so, simply because it no longer occurs to him,
based on his past extraordinary experiences of
plainly seeing what is going on in life,
without the filtration of the usual brain activity that
constitutes mans ordinary mental conception thereof.
Another feature of the Temporal-Hero is that
he does not brag;
he is not in fact, given to talk about himself at all.
True again from Indian metaphorical war lore of 4000 B.C. to Italian spaghetti westerns, circa l960.
Caesar does not trumpet his own triumphs,
nor Solomon say: Hey, am I smart or what?!
To the Mundane-Hero is attributed the quality called, humility
while the operational reality that supports
this mental concept is simply a natural,
un-thought-about aspect of a
When you know what is going on in life,
it never crosses your so-called, mind to say words about yourself and your so-called, maybe-accomplishments.
Doing so would be a complete, inconceivable denial
of everything that a man-who-knows — KNOWS.
The Secular-Hero is unquestionably honest, and forthright; he certainly would not steal from you,
nor engage in any form of duplicity.
Even if he is smarter than others, he does not
put them on, or make them look foolish,
any more than physically, would Samson
take on 90 pound weaklings in arm wrestling,
in some sort of attempt to make himself look good.
You can conjure up from your own memory & thought many other examples
of unquestionable traits that the history of man says a true Hero would possess, and see if you do not instantly recognize that such would also be at the very foundation of a more expanded comprehension of life;
(if you read these daily news reports for any reason
other than to increase your irritation —
you should so easily realize).
Rather than laze in dreams of what it would be like to be, mystically – Awake, or Enlightened
consider instead the mental concepts already established in your head of — The Hero,
and ponder the assertion herein that such verbally describable, admirable, and desirable characteristics
would also secretly, and non verbally outline the
life both externally and inwardly of a person no longer
captured by the overall cellular activity that produces
common, human consciousness.
To have seen, and to know for yourself what is going on in life, (as opposed to what humanity is made to
think is going on),
will result in you having no interest in:
bragging, or talking about yourself;
no inclination to whine or complain;
no desire to deal in duplicity with other people,
to lie to them; to criticize them, or in anyway,
belittle them, and make them feel bad, or inferior,
no ability to be dishonest, and take what is not yours
since you have little to no desire to have any of the things that so captivate ordinary people.
Such are some verbally handy, expedient descriptions
of what would naturally occur to a person who sees directly into the machinery of human existence;
a person who is an unseen, non secular hero,
(hero to whom, is hard to say, since he himself never thinks of himself thus, and certainly takes no actions to try and make it apparent to others).
The popular image of a mystic –
(a person possessing anomalistic consciousness) —
is of a weak, retiring, overwhelmed,
under appreciated, other-worldly critic of humanity,
yet if you consider this but briefly,
this describes what ordinary mens consciousness
conceives of as the villains, and toadies of history;
scum on the pond of human existence.
Ordinary mens eternal picture of a Hero is a valid,
external representation of what is the internal
reality OF one-who-knows,
and you need look no further for accurate descriptions thereof.
Fact is, Those-To-Wealth-&-Privilege-Born
have a built in cellular story teller that makes all of this privately available with no need to look elsewhere.
There is, and has always been in all men
an unspoken knowledge of what it would be like
to be of freer mind,
with a more informative state of consciousness;
it is just that ordinarily,
men are forced to pretend that such a possibility is outside the realm of possibility.
