Michael Stuart Kelly Posted January 26 Share Posted January 26 Scott Adams is definitely a creep. An intelligent one, so that makes him worse. He uses his intelligence to do gain of function on his own creepiness. I have been uncomfortable with his apparent stupidity about COVID. It didn't sound right. Then he posted the following Tweet and even Elon Musk responded. Now Scott says he was running an experiment on people about his "two movies" theory. And what is the two movies theory? The following (my paraphrase). People see the same reality, but tend to segment into people who see two different movies, that is one segment sees one movie and the other segment sees another movie. The movies alter reality for them although the reality they look at is the same. What's more, one movie is generally the opposite of the other in terms of both what is real and what it means. So Scott said he is from one movie concerning COVID, that he has been in this movie for years, and he decided to see what being in the other movie felt like. So he made some tweets tailored to the beliefs and emotions of the people who see the other movie and that led to surprising results and blah blah blah... In fact, in the tweet where Elon Musk responded, Scott said he was surprised anyone believed him and didn't realize his tweet was satire. Because "clearly," people from his normal movie would see it as satire. So it stunned him that Elon got taken in. Here is where he is talking about all this and what an awesome puppetmaster he is. I only saw 30 minutes or so of the video because I couldn't take it anymore. project Veritas, Pfizer, banning TikTok, mocking Schiff, and more… WWW.BITCHUTE.COM What a load of bullshit. And I'm not talking about Scott's views on COVID, his experiment or even his theories. I'm talking about Scott talking in the first place and using his audience as livestock to experiment on. Scott has gotten to the point in his own vanity that he believes his own bullshit. "I say, therefore I am." He says clearly, although not in these words and framing, that he believes toying with his audience in this fashion is a good thing and the results prove how right and better than others he is. Do you know where I have seen this before? In the pop artists I produced in Brazil. This stuff is vanity with little substance. Here's a reality I know Scott doesn't see since he never talks about it. Loyal fans don't mind white lies. They all know public images are part fiction and part reality. In Scott's view, they don't. They only see one movie or another. (In fact, this is true about the extremes in O-Land, but it is true about the fringes of most anything.) But do you know what happens to most loyal fans when they perceive they are being lied to in order for the liar to lie to himself about how awesome he is, how superior to his fans he is? They get bored and start leaving. I'm not speculating. I've seen this several times up close. So why am I going on about Scott Adams so much? Don't worry. It's only temporary. I learned a lot from Scott and my cognitive dissonance is high right now. Way down in the underbelly of my mind. I am realizing that the difference between my perception of Scott Adams and the reality of him are not in alignment. And, for as surprising as it may seem, it's tough to make the readjustment toward reality, but I am doing it. The perception felt good, but reality is reality. After all, Scott comes off as feeling superior to others and by agreeing with him, the underbelly of my mind can catch a ride on that feeling of superiority. But reality doesn't care how I feel. Like Rand always said, reality can destroy me if I do reality wrong. So I have made a habit in my thinking. Reality ALWAYS trumps my formed perception when there is a difference. Once I detect it, I have to accept reality as the standard. In reading these posts, you are literally watching the process of me becoming bored with Scott Adams. It's not an on-off switch. It's a process, one where a lot of my own thinking and emotions are involved. But I know what is going on since I have done this before. The end result will be total boredom and the state of serenity and grace Howard Roark achieved when he said to Toohey, "But I don't think of you." Only, for Scott, I would add, "I used to think of you, but now you bore me." A friend offline told me that she is in line with my thinking about Scott. So much so, she removed him from her bookmarks. She wrote, "That'll show him." The thing is, I have no doubt there are many like her. Inside, I am far more like people like her than I am people like Scott. So, from a lifetime of being like this, I know there are many. It's a reality thing. One gesture may not seem like much, but when multiplied, that really will show him. However, I think he is too far gone into the myth of his own vanity to see it. Oops. It's been nice, but time to think about my fiction writing projects... Maybe some Internet marketing... Maybe some Trump and MAGA... You know, me stuff... (yawn...) See? I'm already getting bored with Scott Adams. Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
