Red Pill Logic: An Essay on Female Understanding

female-mindAbout 10 years ago the axiom “The First Rule of the Red Pill is do not talk about the Red pill” was not really common, so I decided to discuss the various tactics I had utilized on women with them, I repeated this endeavor a few times, not out of the need to be honest, but as a form of research into how that woman had perceived the course of events that lead up the situation that we found ourselves in.

The reaction varied somewhat from woman to woman, one of my favorites was a woman who spent half our first date talking about how game was bullshit, while falling for many of those same gambits. Ever a curious man, I started picking at her assertions and digging into why she thought that game would never work. She became a bit flustered as she attempted to explain her reasoning, and finally she said “They are planning what should be spontaneous and natural. It’s nerdy!”. This was a very interesting observation that I realized years later plays into solipsism, hypergamy and especially “just be yourself“. This is because “Just be yourself” is a tactic to get a man to act in a manner that comes natural to him, something which makes telling an alpha from a beta a much simpler and less risky exercise for women.

One must consider that determining alpha or beta, is a fundamental and very important skills to learn for a female to be able to optimize hypergamy. There is an inherent risk that if a woman eliminates too many alphas, or permit too many betas to enter, she will fail. A woman who does not do a good job at separating the two will tend to either get too few mating opportunities, or she mates too much with men of too low quality, thus the result is an error of optimization.

A second woman talked at length about how the experiences with me were new to her, and questioned why she had reacted to- and perceived my actions in the light that she did. In somewhat of a case of youthful naivet√©, I took it upon myself to explain the various gambits and their purpose to her. She listened intently as I explained the role of opinion openers, “chick crack” in the form of games such as “The Cube“, bouncing a woman to a second and third location rapidly to give the impression of 3 dates taking place rather than one, and finally the disarming of “anti-slut defense” and Last minute resistance.

After I stopped speaking, we sat there quietly for some time as she processed the information that I had conveyed as if I was lecturing a student, and responded “No, it wasn’t any of those things, it was that you were confident“. This is an example of how woman rationalize their decisions post-hoc, often down to one salient quality, giving them an excuse or a narrative for why they did “the right thing” and cannot be held accountable for their actions. A woman admitting that game works, means admitting that the truths that serve as its foundation are also true. All women are not unique snowflakes as their solipsism tells them. They have virtually no control over what attracts them.

These two experiences, and a few more lead to me concluding that discussing game, and subsequently the game with women is an experience in futility, as it destroys the illusion that every woman wants to maintain; that they are special snowflakes. No woman inherently wants to admit that game works, because game is a singular methodology that has a high general applicability. If the red pill and game works, everything a woman thinks about herself is untrue,  one can easily contrast this with blue pill game, which is centered around ensuring the female of her special nature.

Red Pill Logic: Briffault’s law, Bateman and Peak Hypergamy

briffaultI read a couple of rational male posts recently that were concerned with Open Hypergamy and Peak Hypergamy, as I was reading them, it became clear that this is a function of what is encapsulated in a quote from my previous article “A Woman’s Resume“: “Men spend their entire lives fighting to get credit for their virtuous behavior, women spend theirs fighting to avoid punishment for their depraved behaviors.

Hypergamy has historically been controlled through men holding and being able to exercise overt power, often granted by social factors such as religion and tradition. This power would directly control hypergamy through ensuring that women could not engage in their strategy of “Alpha Fucks/Beta Bucks” without significant risk and major consequences. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, is a great example of how a woman branded an adulteress, is relegated to a life in poverty and shame as a single mother in a Puritan community in the 1600s. The narrative of the book aside, this exemplifies the risk-reward balance between Alpha Fucks and Beta Bucks. The cost of attaining or attempting to attain high quality genetics from a man with whom she will be unable to secure a long-term relationship is the risk that she will be found out, and thus sacrifice her opportunity to secure beta bucks.

A female victory in the sexual market place is attained through being able to secure both of the end states sought, successful attainment of high quality genetics, and successful attainment of long-term provision. Traditionally, both would be sough from the same man, though the end result of this would be a case of settling in both cases. The mathematics here is simple, if one uses the percentages given by the Pareto Principle, that only 20% of men have the potential alpha genetics, then it follows that either a state of polygamy or a state of reproductive laissez-faire would be required in order for women to secure access to these genetics.

Red Pill Logic: Feminine Frames

fem-frameI came across a couple of articles on The Guardian the other day, that got me thinking about how females approach the sexual market place. I’ve written about how men often approach it from the expectancy and equity perspective, which translates into a play based in reciprocity, where the man engages in actions with the expectation that the female will seek to bring back equity to the relationship through doing nice things for him (reward him with sex). This is the chosen approach that most men tend to default towards unless they find themselves in a community where the red pill mindset is common. In my article on the male sexual strategies I also touched on the fact that the Red Pill SMP for men is in many ways a continuous arms race to be in the top 10 – 20% of males that due to the nature of hypergamy are chased by most, if not all women.

However, apart from the female sexual strategies (Part 1 and Part 2) I hadn’t written much about the female perspective. The two articles I referenced earlier are both on beauty and beauty standards, the first dealing with the concept of the “beauty backlash“, which according to the writer is concerned with actually rejecting the grooming standards that have been socially established for women [1]. The second dealing with the tendency for women to photoshop the photos they share on social media [2].

While the former is clearly a part of the same narrative that most feminist and feminist-adjacent rhetoric centers on, namely to reduce any form of standards or expectations of women to zero, thus “liberating” them from the shackles of having to do anything except what they want, while simultaneously raising the standard of men, in order to secure an alpha (with just enough beta in him) for every woman, the latter is in a sense centered on women imposing standards on other women.

The latter is the far more interesting article, as it demonstrates that in the war for online attention women may live as in article one, but airbrush as in article two.This is the feminine created arms race, wherein women project their own sexual market frame on to men, just as men do when they engage in reciprocity game. The online arms-race among women for social media attention works to drive an arms race in the real world. When men utilize reciprocity frameworks, they are projecting the tendency of men to be deductive problem-solvers that seek to maintain equity in relationships, onto women.

Red Pill Logic: The Purple Pill

purple-pillWhen I wrote the blue and red pill theoretical framework the goal was to identify the mutual exclusivity of the two frameworks. I deliberately left out the purple pill, as it requires its own essay due to the fact that it appears to contradict the mutual exclusivity that was outlined in the other essay. To define the purple pill, it is a position that seeks to enable a man to have the blue pill fantasy, while remaining red pill. In essence leveraging his red pill knowledge in order to experience the blue pill fantasy.

In a sense, once a man learns red pill knowledge, it is impossible to return to the Matrix without significant dissonance, unlike Cypher, there is simply no way to have your mind wiped clean of all aspects of the red pill. It may be suppressed for a time, or channeled through a defense mechanism or two, but the idealism that is required for a true blue pill fantasy is gone and what remains is merely a hollow shell.

Central to the blue pill fantasy is the idea of there being a “one“, a perfect partner who fulfills your every need. Leaving out the part where perfection is a human conception that has no place in reality, and if it did would at best exist in a moment by moment basis, there is no such thing as a perfect partner. Someone may be a better fit for you than another, in transient moments it may feel as they are perfect but this is an illusion. A man cannot at the same time accept AWALT and view his partner in the manner required for the blue pill.

From my research on the topic, the reasoning behind a purple pill perspective is to attempt a circumnavigation of the principles that are core to the red pill, such s solipsism, hypergamy and “all women are like that“. It is also based in an illusion of control, through which if the husband is red pill enough, he can alter her biological firmware, through constant vigilance. Throughout history, female nature was socially controlled through various means, religion, social shaming and jurisprudence are some of them. For instance, British divorce law from pre-1900 where the husband would automatically gain custody over the children in the event of divorce played on a female being attached to her children to reduce branch swinging, and to police her behavior.

Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Scarlet Letter“, demonstrates how social shaming and shunning could be utilized to reduce the tendency for hypergamy, through it having social and financial consequences. The severe biblical punishments for adultery served to further reduce the inherent tendencies of the human female.

The purple pill perspective is therefore, that a man standing alone as long as he is alpha and red pill aware enough can be different from the myriad of other men who were unable to accomplish what an entire society creates incentives against. To make this essay comparable with the other essay, I will go through the purple pill perspective on each point from it. Continue reading

Red Pill Logic: Frames of reference

frame_of_referenceI recently watched a response video to the widespread “2016 was the worst year ever” tantrum largely by people who’s view of history is shorter the time the iPhone has been in existence, where the content creator ended his video with the statement “No, 2016 is not the worst ever, your frame of reference is“. I had another post planned, but that statement is perhaps more profound than the creator intended when he recorded it.

Frame of reference can be argued as a synonym for “field of knowledge“, which is an expression that is used within academia and is of high importance when designing research projects. In order to avoid duplicating the research that has already been done within a field of knowledge (unless one is doing a verification of previous research), a literature search is conducted to build the foundation for the research. It also serves to anchor the research that is to be done within the field, and to support choices the researcher makes. Continue reading

Perspectives, Horizons and Life Vision

strategic-pyramidUsually when someone seeks to change something with their life, regardless of whether it is a minor or major issue, the same methods tend to be applied. Extreme methodology applied for a burst-style period of time. For instance, people who seek to drop excess weight gained over a period of years, seek to drop this weight in a span of weeks or months. People who have been neglecting one part of their life for years, seek to rectify it in a flurry of excessive effort, without a focus on efficacy.

Likewise, people love to hunt for simple, smart solutions, to complex and convoluted challenges, without regard for the destination they seek. For instance, changing your life from one where you consume too much, and too poor quality food, tends to be one where people make radical changes rapidly, disregarding the longer term perspective.

The combination of these two tendencies, trends towards short sighted strategies, and simplistic solutions. When one approaches a problem that must be tackled long term, with complex and multi-variable solutions, from the short-term perspective and a simple solution, the inevitable failure leads to a person being worse off than they were initially.

The Climate Change Red Pill

snow_thing_of_the-pastI did something I promised myself I would stop doing on Twitter the other day, I made a snarky remark about climate change. I wasn’t going to right about the ensuing debate, or the topic itself, as it does not fit the nature of this blog, however, then it struck me; climate change and the red pill have many things in common. They are both issues that have strong components within both facts and policy, both are emotionally loaded and they tend to involve policy solutions that have unforeseen and negative consequences.

The reason why I tend to avoid issues like climate change is for the simple reason that they are highly emotional issues. In addition, many of the climate change adherents are pushing policy, and predictably engage in typical name-calling rather than discussions regarding underlying principles.

This is very similar to discussing social issues, where statements of a red pill nature frequently can have you branded a misogynist faster than a 35 year old single girl empties a box of wine. Continue reading
