The Wiki at the Beginning

UnhackTheBrain

Certainly there is a lot of concern that electronic voting will be hacked & thereby invalidate the results of an election. I am more concerned with hacking the registration system & illegal voters. However the most powerful hacks of all are those to the brain. The media spreads memes that are the most virulent of all. You will find your friends & internet buddys spreading the most outrageous propaganda, untruths, partial truths, unsourced and wrongly-sourced information & PureHorseShit - based on TheNews. This project is sired with the desire to counter that trend & seek the real truth through some of the following:
  1. ReHeadlining  thought 1602
  2. TrueInformationRating thought 1603
  3. EventDatabase thought 1604
  4. FactCheckerCentral thought 1628
  5. CitizenJournalism thought 1630
  6. AutomaticContentExtraction thought 1631

This replicates the wiki content as best as copy/paste can do.

It's about a 2 minute job to restore the old wiki, but we have moved past it by now.

yes, me thinks we have too

If you are a member of this group, you can navigate the whole tree. When you run into something that is a broken link, there probably was nothing there in the wiki either, but I didn't take the time to remove the link from FastBlogIt.

you may want to decide on a tag room, apparently it will either be unhack or unhackthebrain but other variations exist. i note that google unhack gets you closer to the concept.
can we try them both & see which gets more hits ?
good

I think i am finally starting to grok what you mean by [google unhack the brain].  I note, if you can believe Google, the usage is apparently your coinage.  So are you looking at negative human behaviors that got "into our brains" as hacks put there intentionally (or even unintentionally) from our culture?  "Hacks" here taking the pejoritive connotation.  Is your thesis that the consciousness of these hacks will help in their removal?
You are perceptive & grokked it right. Although the other side thought as "hacking into the brain" to figure out how it works defensively is just as good.

Being a Certified Master Clinical Hypnotherapist I can also appreciate the way some memes & ideas enter the mind (or brain). The ecology of this process is also of concern here. .... e.g. "I think somebody hacked into my brain & I want to find out what he did there"


Mark de LA says
Another way to unhack the brain is to become conscious. Bring as much consciousness as possible to what information you let into your brain. Take long walks in the woods & turn of the TV for extended periods of time. (Also get away from the internet).

Mark de LA says
I forgot three obvious ways to unhack the brain or at least increase the odds in your own favor:
  1. Become as conscious as you possibly can (forget drugs that's going in the opposite direction).
  2. Master some NLP & learn the linguistic patterns which bypass the logical & conscious and lead into hypnotic patterns. google neurolinguistic programming
  3. Master some memetics - like possibly read Virus of the Mind - for ways that mind viruses spread themselves.google memetics


Mark de LA says
Remember the old Wiki in which just about every word was a link?  Some here have interesting bugs in them.
