“A lot has been written about psychopaths, some insightful, some neutral and some hilarious. Of the hilarious ones, nothing is more arresting than what is said about our eyes. One blog called Psychopaths and Love says, “Many of us have seen firsthand or read descriptions of psychopaths having an intense gaze, a predatory or reptilian stare, or eyes that are lifeless, dead, emotionless, cold, icy, flat, black, or empty.” Why do our eyes look this way? The article continues, “Dr. Reid Meloy’s Reptilian State Theory hypothesizes that psychopaths are more like reptiles than mammals.” So now we’re not mammals. We’re reptiles? The author quotes Dr. Robert Hare as saying, “Many people find it difficult to deal with intense, emotionless, or ‘predatory’ stare of the psychopath. Normal people maintain close eye contact with others for a variety of reasons, but the fixated stare of the psychopath is more prelude to self-gratification and the exercise of power than simple interest or empathetic caring.”
“Now that we’ve gotten beyond the over-the-top rhetoric expelling us from the human race and even from the category of “mammal,” we can get some more explicit description of what bothers some people about our “stare.” (Some people aren’t even satisfied with relegating us to membership in another species, even another phylum. To them our stare reveals evil, itself. Lucky Otter says, “there’s nothing inside them except an vast and endless black void of nothingness….Behind the twinkle, the eyes are still reptilian and dead.”) It is “fixated,” “intense,” “emotionless” and “predatory.” The picture shown here indicates to me, “I know what’s really happening.” It reminds me of moments I have had the same godlike, omniscient awareness of being the only one in the room who was awake. A fixated and intense “stare” can simply be a sign that the psychopath is really interested in what s/he is looking at. As I discussed in my blog post about charm, psychopaths are often intensely interested. We recognize some people as deeply mysterious and we love to solve mysteries. Many people think psychopaths are serial killers. But, once disabused of this incorrect stereotype, the “predatory” characterization begs the question of what we are looking for in our “prey.” Most of us are not looking for a victim to be murdered. Many psychopaths are merely looking for someone to have a sexual relationship. In this respect, psychopaths are not very different from ordinary men. Every girl or woman who has dates can attest to the fact that most men want a conquest, that is, to have sex with the woman they are dating. Nobody seems to find this sinister when it is a goal of a “regular” or NT male. When a psychopath does it, it’s “predatory.” The fact that most relationships with psychopaths are short-lived, most “hook-ups” today are, in fact, short lived. The sooner a couple get horizontal, the more quickly they tend to tire of one another and move on. Again, this is as true of the “non” as it is with the “path.” I must confess bewilderment with the way a psychopath on the make is considered more “predatory” than the NT man on the make. Perhaps the answer is in the adjective in Hare’s statement I haven’t discussed, “emotionless.” Psychopaths are known to be less emotional (and more rational) then the rest of the population. Is the sexual come-on of the “emotionless” psychopath really more “self-gratifying” than the that of the more emotional Don Juans in our midst?
“So far, I have only talked about one possible interest a psychopath may have in hir “prey.” But we can have other interests. Someone may be interesting, have information to share, money or even connections to other people. These are all things anyone can desire and try to get from another.
“The article goes on, “In my own experience, the psychopath I knew had lambent eyes — brilliantly playful, softly bright, luminous. They twinkled with warmth when he smiled, or so I thought. It was actually the twinkle of amusement as he manipulated me. A few times I saw the light go out in his eyes, and in those moments they became flat and dead.” This brings us to another quality we are reputed to have. We are alleged to have a void within ourselves. Blogger Lucky Otter wrote, “sometimes they can be caught when their mask is momentarily down (usually when they’ve been called out–or caught), and it’s here when we see the emptiness and evil inside them.” Evil? Not merely reptilian? She goes on to say, “It’s not so much a demonic look (which has a sort of life to it) as a dead, lifeless look that is far worse. It’s a malignant look that makes you want to get away from them fast. Like there’s nothing inside them except an vast and endless black void of nothingness. It’s like standing at the precipice of a black hole, and what can be more terrifying than some nameless void that can suck you into itself–and can even swallow light?” WOW! I’m actually impressed! I have a black hole inside me? Good grief!
“A new explanation (new to me anyway) for the “psychopathic stare” has been articulated in the article, Subtle Signs of Psychopathy, “Psychopaths look people in the eyes, but only because they learned that it is the proper way to communicate. Eye contact does not come naturally to them. This is why their stare is too strongly fixated on the other person and it looks weird. Some people say that they try to hypnotize their victims. But I believe that sometimes they just try too hard.” Um, OK.
“People have always been concerned about each other’s eyes and considered them to be windows to the soul. Interestingly enough, most animals avoid eye-to-eye contact. When stared at by another animal, they interpret that star as a prelude to an attack. When I was a child, I liked to pretend I was a cat like my lovable pet. Once, I get under my cat’s favorite chair and stared at her. My cat didn’t understand that I was playing. She pounced at me as if I had been challenging her space. I never tried that again, understanding what she must have considered my behavior. In the wild, people threatened by a lion or tiger can sometimes bluff the animal by staring it in the eyes. If they are lucky, the beast will think this person must have power to be so unafraid and confrontational. Only the human species sees eye contact as something warm and friendly. I have been told that even some human cultures consider eye-contact as rude. In the Latino cultures, I have heard, looking away is a gesture of submission and respect. Anglos often think the person is being “sneaky” when he is only being polite.
“An American dollar bill has a very compelling occultist symbol. It is a pyramid truncated close to its apex. The apex of this pyramid forms a triangle with a single eye within it. This symbol is familiar to Masons. It is variously called the “eye of Horus” (Egyptian) and the “eye of Shiva” (Hindu). The Christian fundamentalists like to believe that the “founding fathers” were Christian fundies like themselves. But many of them were agnostics and free-thinkers. All the American presidents (until JFK) were Masons. The slogan, “in God we trust” was not put on the dollar until the 50’s. Some people say the eye is the eye of God. It certainly was the eye of many Pagan gods, Horus, Osiris, Shiva… It has also been called the eye of the phoenix. Meanwhile, others say the eye is “creepy.”
“I am not particularly concerned with the conspiracy theories that the eye is “satanic.” My interest is merely to explore the deep significance the eye holds for humanity. The eye is the “window to the soul.” It is the instrument through which we are “seen.” Many people are fearful and nervous about the extent to which our government has us under surveillance. The eye is indeed a window through which we can see and be seen as well.
“The abyss is something most people fear without knowing why. In the Kabbalah, which is claimed both by the Jews and the Egyptians, the Tree of Life is like a diagram or map of spiritual reality. It’s a strongly felt instrument of occultism. The Golden Dawn called it the Qabbalah and made it a center of their studies. On the Tree of Life, there are spheres or “Sephira” representing aspects of spiritual reality. But there is one place on the Tree where a Sephira is absent. In it’s place is a void, called Daath. Only the bravest and most adventurous occultists dared to explore Daath. It is considered both dangerous and a gateway to the highest forms of wisdom. Coincidentally(?), astronomers speak of the black hole in space where everything is sucked into nothingness.
“As can be seen, both the eye and the void are deeply felt by humanity, at least the Western part. The reason psychopaths are feared is, to a great extent, the lack of a conscience. Even Dr. Hare’s book about psychopathy is entitled Without Conscience. The fact that we are not controlled or held back by something most people claim to have within spooks those who are conscience-bound. I discuss this matter in an article on my web site, Free to Choose. We are not all “evil” and we are not forever doing bad things. But the fact that we can if we want to without being bothered by conscience scares the shit out of people. I think this fear is the root of my people’s “creepy” experience of looking into our eyes. Here’s looking at you.”
First — it is now possible to objectively/scientifically recognize psychopaths (which will, I’m convinced, support Martha Stout’s cited estimate of 4% or 1 in 25 being a psychopath, ((K. Barry et al. (1997), R. Bland, S. Newman, H. Orn (1988), J. Samuels et al. (1994)), and my anecdotal agreement (from recognizing psychopaths waiting for the subway, at street corners, in the workplace, etc.). Second — their unhappy response to this, i.e., their machinations to seize power over the rest of us – political, economic, and through the surveillance built into the internet of things of great utility and convenience. Surveillance that can close like a vise on any chosen target. We carry our own handcuffs with us.
“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.” – George Orwell. The Fabian, George Orwell, was a psychopath writing how-to books, as was Aldous Huxley also. H.G. Wells of The Time Machine with the Eloi and Morlocks was also a Fabian and a psychopath. The books seem to understand our plight from our own standpoint but only because psychopaths have something called “cold empathy.” They know exactly how their targets will experience their attacks, it helps them ‘twist the stiletto’.
See the two prior posts (A hearsay tale involving Andrew Cuomo, and Commenter: “To borrow your own phrase, this nonsense has got to stop, one cannot recognize psychopaths by sight” — but, but, what if you are actually doing so without knowing it? (Mark Zuckerberg, in this case)).
Think what 1 in 25 being psychopaths mean. It means that for every group of 25 that you’ve ever known, there was probably one psychopath. It means we all walk shoulder to shoulder everyday with psychopathic beings who have zero fellow human feelings, emotionless, guiltless beings who see our emotional responses as weakness and know how to use them against us.
So why don’t we all know this? I see two reasons. First, as psychopaths always say (and I’ve heard them say this personally),we all believe what we want to believe. Nobody wants to recognize Dad as a psychopath or Mom, bro or sis. They just have issues and will put their lives together very soon, any day now. Second, we should ask The New Yorker why they published the Psychopathic Whisperer, oopsie, my bad, the Psychopath Whisperer, Kent Kiehl’s drivel of psychopaths being so rare most people will never know any. Who and what is The New Yorker? (https://pathwhisperer.info/2018/01/23/trust-me-im-a-doctor-this-is-a-medical-treatment-psychopath-larry-nassar-md-molests-young-female-gymnasts-for-20-plus-years/#comment-139406).
Hearsay can’t be considered evidence. But individuals are certainly free to decide if they believe a particular hearsay account to be more likely true or more likely false. This story is at one level of hearsay (to me, and two levels to you), there is an individual who alleges to have been an eye/ear witness to alleged bragging by Andrew Cuomo, then there is the individual who relayed the story to me. I trust my source did not make up this account, and I believe my source believes his source — the foregoing doesn’t necessarily mean anything but I want to add it to the mix.
If I could suggest how others approach the following, I’d suggest the these questions. Does this account square with what you know of Mr. Cuomo, either personally or from the public record? Could you see him planning and doing the following? Is he Machiavellian enough? If so, could you see him wishing to brag about it? Is he arrogant enough to commit to such a strategy? Etc.
This account, involving his divorce, goes as follows. Nobody, of course, wants a divorce to publicly devolve into a blackmail contest of mutual dirt slinging and airing of dirty laundry. Particularly not a politician.
Allegedly, Andrew Cuomo and his wife agreed to a trial separation, with a stated (not in writing) agreement that sex with others was acceptable. A setup for a trap? Mr. Cuomo allegedly then hired a private detective to follow his soon to be ex-wife. At an appropriate time to catch his wife in flagrante delicto, alledgedly the private detective and Mr. Cuomo burst into the hotel room (or whereever), cameras in hand and flashes a-poppin’. Voila, a nice quiet divorce.
What’s your opinion, could you see Andrew doing such? Is he the type of personality that would want to brag about it?
Would you want him to wield facial recognition/AI tracking powers? https://www.vocativ.com/396745/memo-new-york-called-for-face-recognition-cameras-at-bridges-tunnels/index.html, https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-07-21/big-brother-surveillance-begins-cuomo-unveils-facial-scanning-new-york-toll-plazas.
After the last election, I recall Mr. Cuomo being asked what he thought of Ms. Teachout. Paraphrased from memory, ‘Ahh, political season. Gotta love it. Opinions, everyone has one’ and then laughed. Let me translate that from psychopath-speak. He was calling her an asshole. The complete phrase, of course, is ‘opionions are like assholes, everyone has one.’ I’m sure all the other psychopaths laughed too.
Then there is his latest “America was never great” flap. Psychopaths in the thrall of groupthink are dangerous, they easily lose the thread. He and his advisors no doubt thought they were destroying Trumps’ trump card, his ‘Make America Great Again‘ campaign.
Finally, on Andrew, have you noticed his voice? Its very ugly. I believe he lacks the empathic soul that animates a normal human voice.
Moving on, how about Chris?
Fox News host Tucker Carlson poked fun at CNN’s Chris Cuomo Friday, playing a bizarre video Cuomo posted on Instagram. . . .
In Cuomo’s video, he makes a few vague comments about last summer’s “Wonder Woman” movie before making air kisses.
Cuomo says, “‘Wonder Woman,’ amazing. We finally had a female director of break the $100 million mark. The film means more than just its box score. What does it mean to you? Here’s a little intrigue–I wanted to be like Wonder Woman, and I’m gonna wear a shirt that says it.”
“What does it qualify as intrigue that Chris Cuomo wanted to be Wonder Woman? Did he ever wear that shirt? What’s with the air kisses? There are so many more questions,” Carlson said.
He sarcastically continued, “It’s better to understand Chris Cuomo for who he is. An artist, poet, seeker, shaman. The question is not, what the hell is Chris talking about, but what is Chris Cuomo trying to teach us, all of us, humanity itself?” http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/14/tucker-plays-bizarre-clip-of-cnns-chris-cuomo-talking-total-nonsense-video/
At what age does an child’s gender identity solidify? It would seem that significant parts of Chris’s personality are arrested prior to that point.
More, CNN’s Chris Cuomo Excuses Antifa’s Violence Because ‘All Punches Are Not Equal . . .’ — Chris Cuomo: We At CNN Can Possess WikiLeaks Emails, But You Can’t. — CNN’s Chris Cuomo: ‘Fake news’ insult ‘equivalent of the N-word. Uh, . . ., guys, gals, . . .
Finally, if someone would give me a toothbrush from each of Mario, Andrew and Chris plus 15 thousand dollars, I’ll give you the Cuomo bloodline, the Cuomo psychopathic bloodline.
Regarding Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, would you say his looks are odd? His eyes strange? Would you say, or understand why someone else might describe his eyes as flat or shallow? Would you say, or understand why someone else might say there was no soul behind his eyes? Would you say, or understand why someone else might say the phrase, ‘the lights are on, but nobody is home”? Does he seem arrogant to you? Almost emotionless? Personality-less?
Any ‘yes’, means you are on the way. That’s how recognizing psychopaths start.
“Dumb F–ks”: Julian Assange Reminds Us What Mark Zuckerberg Thinks Of Facebook Users
“Julian Assange fired off a tweet Friday afternoon reminding people of the time Mark Zuckerberg called his users “Dumb fucks” because they trusted him with their private information.

Zuck: Just ask.

[Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?
Zuck: People just submitted it.
Zuck: I don’t know why.
Zuck: They “trust me”
Zuck: Dumb fucks.

Wake up, Eloi.
Is Mark Zuckerberg’s wardrobe that of a genius… or psychopath?
Please note, Facebook has just shut down Alex Jones Infowars’ sites and Venezuelan sites. It doesn’t matter what you think of these sites, next time it could be you. The war begins.
What?? What’s that voice in the back? “You’re wrong. Mark is simply a nice Jewish boy!” Ah. . . . No, you are the one who’s wrong. The reason you think that, is due to psychopathy being another genetic disorder carried in higher percentages in the Ashkenazi population. Plain and simple. It is not anti-Semitism to note this. In fact it should be freeing. When a young person suddenly realizes that a parent is a psychopath, they are suddenly freed from the dictates of the parent/child power relationship, and can proceed to explore life unhindered by the anchor of the psychopathic parent.
Nobody likes being slimed by a psychopath.
“‘I was shocked it was so easy’: meet the professor who says facial recognition can tell if you’re gay”.
This individual who doesn’t believe in guilt or free will should turn his AI photo machine loose on faces like his own.
‘It’s not the sex of the individual, it’s the person’ (paraphrased). That’s deep, man, deep. Yeah, love the one your with! Plus, all cats are gray in the dark!
I’ve decided to take pics of annoying neighborhood psychopaths (or probable psychopaths). The criteria could be almost anything. 1) I might find them annoying for no known reason, that’s good enough for me. If my emotional reaction says they are annoying, I assume the cause just hasn’t reached my consciousness yet. (I’m with those who say every psychological growth stage is still within our psyche and can be drawn on. I urge everone to reintegrate with their 5/6 year old self who knew whom they liked or trusted). 2) It might seem to me that I run into them too often. 3) It might seem that they keep showing up in too timely a manner as though checking up on my health after attacks.
A nearby store has been the site of a number of anomalous occurrences (were they more than that?, you tell me). I hesitate to discuss such matters, it seems to lose me visitors and commenters. Oh, well.
I used to go to this store almost everyday for a coffee and a pastry. One day there’s an individual, whom I had never seen before, in front of me at the self serve coffee machine. Nothing unusual, except I really disliked him, for no known reason. And then, he left the milk out for me — ah, a nice guy. Then I see there’s only enough milk left in the carton for one cup of coffee. That’s odd. Then I see there’s another open milk container in the refridgerator section. That’s very odd. I’d never, ever seen two open cartons in this very small store at the same time. Who wants a stinking coffee anyway? Two anomalies are enough for me to alter my path. There was also at least one more anomalous event concerning a cup of coffee there.
I also used to buy a particular chocolate bar almost everyday. One day I went in and there were 7 – 8 individuals crowded around the cashier at the candy counter. I had to sort of push through just barely able to reach the bars. However somebody had conveniently left a bar sitting flat on top of all the others making it easier to grab, what a nice person. So I grabbed it and left a dollar on the counter. Then as I left with chocolate, I suddenly realized that all the people around the counter knew each other and were sort of moving in coordination (obviously I trust messages from my subconscious). Plus the responses of the few that I had to squeeze by with ‘excuse me, excuse me,” seemed wrong to me. One of the things that is impossible in this world is pretending not to know someone (it doesn’t matter if they pretend to ignore you or if they engage with you). They recognized me. Who wants a stinking chocolate?
The individual in the pic didn’t play a part in any of the above occurrences. But he did play a peripheral part in another anomalous event. I have to qualify this story as being from the ‘I’d never believe it, if it hadn’t happened to me’ file drawer. There was another store where I would often buy a particular item. One day as I approach the door I see the same neighborhood psychopath (or likely psychopath) chatting with a plain clothes policeman sitting on a milk crate pretending to be a homeless panhandler (recognizing undercover cops). OK. Then immediately inside the door there is a fake mentally ill homeless person wearing five or six shirts. OK How do I know he was fake, his ‘intent’ was all wrong. Then I noticed that he actually wasn’t doing anything, just standing there. So I went over to the proper shelf, and there was only one sample of the item available. OK. Then, in the line, the guy behind me struck up a small conversation — but he didn’t look at me as though I were a stranger. OK. Then as I walked from the front of the line to the cash register clerk, he suddenly said , ‘oops, he had forgotten his money and would have to come back’ and left the line. OK. However both he and the five shirt fake mentally ill person seemed to suddenly relax and almost smile at my making the purchase. Hmm. Then as I left the store I stepped around the corner of the building to make a cell phone call. Then the fake homeless cop almost knocked me down tearing around the corner carrying his milk crate as though his shift was over. Hmmm. That’s too many anomalies for me, who wants this stinking item anyway?
The fake homeless cop (undercover cops use this ruse quite frequently) would be easy to ID. He’s around 6′ 2 or 3″, ruddy complextion – would sun burn easily, 40s maybe, lanky physique but very muscular, tousled dirty blondish hair, 2 or 3 inches, toothy, rangey (if that means anything), etc.
Some might say all the above have credible reasons for happening as they happened and that I’m imagining things. OK, maybe, but I don’t think so. I say that the reason that I’m alive and Kathy Krajco, Linda Mealey and others are dead is that I read intent and they didn’t. There are some 12 to 15 psychopathy truth martyrs as I look at it, a few had mysterious deaths, the others died from seemingly natural disease processes — but I wouldn’t bet money that that was true.
Another day I’m sitting in a local coffee shop. I notice a psychopath I’d never seen in the neighborhood before in the ordering line. However, he displayed no intent of actually desiring a coffee or a bagel, displayed no ‘yum, yum, yummy, I can’t wait for my bagel’ anticipation. Further I suddenly realized (there I go again) that his intent was hostile and that I was his target. He left before me. As I left some 5, 10 minutes later, I see him walking at an angle to intercept me. So I walk along and suddenly stop when we are about two feet apart and we stand there staring at each other. That’s close enough so there are no secrets and it was obvious that this psychopath knew and hated me. But I actually didn’t sense any intent of immediate harm. I’ve noticed before that sometimes psychopaths like to ‘mark’ their targets. The actual attack took place later that day. In NYC there are often one/two story scaffolds up around buildings for building inspections. The way they are built funnel pedestrians into two lanes and if there is a sidewalk cafe into one lane. You could call it a double pinch point. So I’m walking through such a double pinch point (across the street from the first cafe) and suddenly someone rushing by me brushes me physically in his hurry. I’m thinking,’whoa, I guess he was in a hurry.’ Then, ‘wait a minute, that was with purposeful intent, he brushed against me purposely, what’s going on here?’ So I spun around and there’s a woman around six inches behind me, holding her purse up to her chest with one hand, while removing something from it with the other, while staring intently at what had been the back of my head. She must have moved in close in coordination with the brush by, I was supposed to notice only the brush by. Unfortunately I didn’t have the presence of mind to tackle her and empty her purse. She snatched her hand out of her purse and just hurried away. A fentanyl swab behind the ears (http://time.com/khaled-mashaal/)? A psychotic anxiety level causing agent (i.e. to cause suicide)? A prussic acid aerosol to cause a heart attack (or something more up to date)? Who knows?
Anyway, the idividual pictured at the top has lately been looking at me like the cat that ate the canary, so I decided to write this down.
Recently a local proprietor, that I had known for almost twenty years, said they were collecting customers’ pics and that I was to be the first. Within a few seconds I had ten/twenty shots taken with a camera with biometric capabilities. I had crossed paths with specific psychopathic undercover cops on my previous visit. Should I be worried? Cut my hair shorter and shaved off my full beard just in case.
