Our Future?


From Wikipedia (John C Calhoun)

In the early 1960s, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) acquired property in a rural area outside Poolesville, Maryland. The facility that was built on this property housed several research projects, including those headed by Calhoun. It was here that his most famous experiment, the mouse universe, was created.  In July 1968 four pairs of mice were introduced into the Utopian universe. The universe was a 9-foot (2.7 m) square metal pen with 54-inch-high (1.4 m) sides. Each side had four groups of four vertical, wire mesh “tunnels.” The “tunnels” gave access to nesting boxes, food hoppers, and water dispensers. There was no shortage of food or water or nesting material. There were no predators. The only adversity was the limit on space.

Initially the population grew rapidly, doubling every 55 days. The population reached 620 by day 315, after which the population growth dropped markedly. The last surviving birth was on day 600. This period between day 315 and day 600 saw a breakdown in social structure and in normal social behavior. Among the aberrations in behavior were the following: expulsion of young before weaning was complete, wounding of young, inability of dominant males to maintain the defense of their territory and females, aggressive behavior of females, passivity of non-dominant males with increased attacks on each other which were not defended against. After day 600, the social breakdown continued and the population declined toward extinction. During this period females ceased to reproduce. Their male counterparts withdrew completely, never engaging in courtship or fighting. They ate, drank, slept, and groomed themselves – all solitary pursuits. Sleek, healthy coats and an absence of scars characterized these males. They were dubbed “the beautiful ones.”

The conclusions drawn from this experiment were that when all available space is taken and all social roles filled, competition and the stresses experienced by the individuals will result in a total breakdown in complex social behaviors, ultimately resulting in the demise of the population.

Calhoun saw the fate of the population of mice as a metaphor for the potential fate of man. He characterized the social breakdown as a “second death,” with reference to the “second death” mentioned in the Biblical book of Revelation 2:11 His study has been cited by writers such as Bill Perkins as a warning of the dangers of the living in an “increasingly crowded and impersonal world.”

From Wikipedia (Behavioral_sink)

Controversy exists over the implications of the experiment (the mouse experiment). Psychologist Jonathan Freedman’s experiment recruited high school and university students to carry out a series of experiments that measured the effects of density on behavior. He measured their stress, discomfort, aggression, competitiveness, and general unpleasantness. He declared to have found no appreciative negative effects in 1975. Researchers argued that “Calhoun’s work was not simply about density in a physical sense, as number of individuals-per-square-unit-area, but was about degrees of social interaction.”

In the last post, we learned about learned helplessness and the parallels with modern men.  To summarize, learned helplessness comes from a sense that no matter what one does, the outcome is random (and mostly bad).  Looking at the above experiment, we see that the males withdrew among themselves completely (MMGTOW Male Mice Going Their Own Way) after day 600.  This was after the social order broke down.  Before this time, the social order was under stress, and the male mice probably learned that no matter what they did, things seems fruitless with respect to fitting into the social order (fighting did not seem to work, and neither did passivity).  This appears to be learned helplessness in action.

As for the female mice, what did they do as social order was breaking down?  That would be, expulsion of young before weaning was complete, along with generally aggressive behavior.  This really does not seem to be effective maternal behavior.  Why would they do it?  It is as if they were not really mothers, but females in the strict sense of the term (those that bear the young).  I am at a loss to explain such behavior, but we see equivalents among modern day women.

Now consider the last excerpt from Wikipedia.  The researcher suggests that the independent variable is not so much population density, as it is breakdown of social structure.  Think about that for a moment.

    Farm Boy,
    You are starting to scare me. While I have heard of this, I always attributed it to population density and we are no where near what those mice had to suffer. In no case did the rodents recover. That is what is scaring me.

    I wouldn’t say that I had ‘learned helplessness’, more learned ‘keeping your powder dry until such a time as actions will have a positive impact’ (now that may not happen within the time I choose to be around, that’s true). And finding other things to do in the meantime.

    Trad cons who are still pushing the ‘real men’ and ‘man up’ lines, when they realise that the increasing numbers of MGTOWs aren’t listening? They’re the ones in more trouble, I think. MGTOWs are far more grounded in reality, they tend not to have impossible holy missions to fulfill.

    Femeroids, I reckon, tend to have mental issues in the first place. Have no real grip on reality to lose. These people will need a lot of medication and secure housing if they ever lose their narrative…and they are losing their narrative right now (Dung’em and UVA are great examples of this).

    Take a step back from worrying about society, it’s not within your powers to save. Make yourselves a life and wait to see if an opportunity comes up to make a difference to people you care about (yourself being #1) and at that point decide whether you wish to do something. Society doesn’t owe you anything, society will throw you in a cage to rot if it suits their purpose (divorced fathers and husbands in a life spiral of debtors prison, unempolyment, debtor’s prison, in the States, for example).

    Make peace with yourself, go find something to enjoy doing.

    Comment at Dalrock’s this it says

    I’m starting to wonder if feminist believing men are so eager to rape women is actually just projection.

    The “ah ha” moment came reading an article (sorry, can’t remember the link), where someone had said a fraternity had set up a “rape room,” so members could have a private place to take a woman and rape her during the party. Huh? A group of men planned this?

    Pornography consumed by men is notably devoid of rape fantasies. In fact, it’s notably devoid of violent sexual fantasies period. Bondage and S&M are such a small segment of men’s pornography that you can make the case that it’s an aberrant fetish for men.

    On the other hand, rape fantasizes–violent rape fantasies–are so common in women’s pornography that it’s fair to say they are the bread-and-butter of women’s sexual fantasies.

    Exploration fruitful it may be.

    “Sex is sex” lesson would be

    We know that many women project their thoughts and desires on men. Or they imitate men and think that should make themselves attractive to men. So women who like emotional porn tend to fantasize about being dominated, then they think most men want to rape, that’s just projection on their part.

    Feminists insist that men rape women to gain control of or dominance over women. This illustrates Feminism projecting female sexuality onto men. It is women who see sex as a means of control. Men see sex as sex.
