Can you imagine how much courage it took to understand the earth orbited the sun before Galileo challenged the obnoxious hypocrites, charlatans, cowards, and DIMwits championing geocentrism?
Courage, not intelligence, is why there are so few visionaries and so many DIMwits who ignore, then dismiss and mock what they’re afraid to consider.
We know it didn’t require smarts to understand heliocentrism because, once enough DIMwits felt it was safe to believe the obvious, children readily grasped what geniuses wouldn’t or couldn’t fathom for centuries.
Where would all that courage have gotten you way back when? Not far.
In fact, understanding heliocentrism before it’s time was more burden than gift. If you weren’t a renowned scientist, you couldn’t broach the topic without being laughed at. There was no way to apply, sell, or give what you knew to be true away. After discovering what a weight is was to be so far ahead of the herd, you couldn’t encumber credentialed friends with such career ending insights.
Granted, it might have been an ego boost to know you were the smartest person in every room you were in but even that has its limits. How enjoyable could it be to have to chose between pretending you’re as timid and ignorant as everyone else or risking mockery, attacks, and dismissals from cabals of arrogant, clueless, and easily threatened DIMwits who didn’t want to know they were more interested in conning one another into believing they knew what they were talking about than admitting they didn’t?
If you have the chutzpah to understand neurocentrism, you’ll soon learn the futility of discussing what you know with family, friends, or strangers. But unlike heliocentrism’s early adopters, even a rudimentary grasp of neurocentrism can positively change your life in any number of ways.
Want to be happier? More aware? Earn more? Learn more? Live in the now? Understand why it’s so hard to lose weight, keep resolutions, reach higher states of consciousness?
Interested in gaining insights into the one and only reason everyone, including you, does and doesn’t do what we do and don’t do? Why morality and integrity are in short supply while self-deception, greed, destruction, conflicts, dishonestly, hypocrisy, inanity, insanity, and addictions run rampant?
Dopamine for DIMwits unravels puzzles great thinkers grappled with for ages. It even explains why heliocentrism took centuries to go from too absurd to consider to too obvious to deny, why neurocentrism might be decades away from being accepted as the most earth-shattering discovery of the century, and why there’s simply no way to explain neurcentrism without annoying, insulting, upsetting, and scaring DIMwits.
After decades of collecting and connecting the countless dots that finally explained how humans ended up in the mess we’re in, and years of failing to share what I’d discovered through the website DopamineProject.org, I decided to regroup, reorganize, rework, recycle, and resort to a somewhat humorous approach in the hope of producing the type of book that would have helped me when I started on my quest to answer a few simple questions:
- Why do people tend to be so self-deceptive, self-serving, destructive, irresponsible, greedy, dismissive of inconvenient truths, and prone to addictions of every kind?
- How did our species manage to fall so short of our potential?
- What can be done to keep humans from self-destructing?
While we wait for the first group of scientists to find the courage to discover what their peers are afraid to consider, all you have to do to dramatically improve your life (by understanding human behavior better than the smartest psychiatrists) is muster enough nerve to confront the fears keeping the craven masses from wanting to know how dopamine-induced madness (DIM) turned potential humans into virtual DIMwits.
