The Little Pyramid Theory

  1. 1. Implications for the course Religious Literacy Course The Little Pyramid Theory on the South Baptist change of stance for abortion over time - case study development
  2. 2. Implications for the course Religious Literacy Written upon request of xx
  8. 8. “GOOD” IS HELPING HAPPINESS TRANQUILITY TRUTH “BAD” IS ROBBERY RAPING HURTING OTHERS LIES Let’s divide those who in an organization or society tend to do good or bad in two groups, and those who are collateral damage and neutral. Neutral Bad Good
  9. 9. “BAD” HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE HAVE TO OBTAIN RESOURCES TO SURVIVE, DEVELOP EGOS AND IDENTITIES CENTERED AROUND LIES In a society where justice prevails, there are sufficient number of truth- driven people at the right levels of society contrary to need-driven people. Let’s call bad with other words: need-driven no matter if the need is for resources or power (killing for money, safety or food) or the need for status/power (token of courage to kill someone to get their oil). Let’s call “good” truth-driven as they optimally take as much as they give and appreciate discovering truths for themselves and the world that are usually on the same line with science. Need-driven examples: • Safety need (bomb Iran due to WMD) • Status need playing to safety needs (I will tell “Build that Wall” to the hungry masses to satisfy their basic needs for safety) • Power need (I will organize a military parade)
  10. 10. “GOOD” HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THEMSELVES AND OTHERS AND HAVE AWARENESS AND SELF-AWARENESS In a society where justice prevails, there are sufficient number of truth-driven people at the right levels of society contrary to need-driven people. Truth-driven examples: • Self-awareness need • Need for education and research • Need to understand others and their actions • Able to truthfully see the right things that in a normal society with institutions take people to the top • Why bomb Iraq without evidence? The neutrals choose between the small number of truth-driven people and the greater number of need-driven people.
  11. 11. Examples of Truth-driven and Need-driven leaders • Academics • Leaders in most normal countries • Thoughtful religious leaders like the Pope • Intelligence service members (85%) • Leaders like Obama The need-driven people cannot handle the truth, so they create their subcultures and societies of deception while truth-driven people rejoice in truths that also make them “meaningless” like the discovery of the size of the Universe or that the Earth is not the physical center of the Universe. • Swindlers and criminals who cannot earn in another way • Exploiters of unsatisfied human needs like safety or social status *Do not show this slide in public as it has political implications
  12. 12. The Truth-drive Pyramid is easy to use in practice • The embodiment of truth that also works in the physical reality • Empty beliefs and deception that bring spiritual and material pain
  13. 13. In a perfect society according to our LPT theory, everyone would spend majority of their time searching and realizing the truth, inside and outside, whatever that may be. TRUTH-DRIVEN SOCIETY.
  14. 14. Contrary to what many secluded in their isolated academic temples think, there is inherent capacity to do evil in mankind  Crime has always been part of human society  Wars have always been waged, etc In this chapter there is a simplistic version of the theory described below (The Little Pyramid Theory), that shows how changes in organizations happen over time. However, in no other time in history, did we have the ability to test basic income on a large scale basis outside of some religious communities, or the ability to think about “post-work, AI-based society”.
  15. 15. South Baptist radicalization Need-driven Truth-driven Organizations evolve due to the number and quality of its members propelled by dynamic cultural surrounding in which they dwell. Neutrals
  16. 16. Where would you put the South Baptist on this “truth pyramid”? Lets assume that majority of the South Baptists are in the circle on the Truth Pyramid who can be Nobel laurates or criminals. Let’s say that the SB’s organizational structure, which is a sub-pyramid in society, can have two types: bottom up pyramid or bottom down one. Like on the next image. SB South Baptists’ span General social truth- pyramid
  17. 17. The organizational structure or the sub- pyramid of SB can come in more ways. This sub-pyramids illustrating the organizational positioning of the SB on the general societal truth pyramid explain a lot of confusion in society. Where will the sub-pyramids be, depends on the people who join and the level they take in the organizational structure. As societal evolution occurs this sub-pyramids change as well.
  18. 18. The organizational structure or the sub- pyramid of SB can come in more ways. If the entire leadership is corrupted, they would surely try to sabotage or kill someone who is different. If the entire lower masses are corrupted and need- driven, then the leadership would have no other option than to either give them what they want to use force to keep them at bay. When the pyramid flips all of the sudden it is a revolution. Soviets in Russia are one example of this. Usually, more gradual changes occur. The dynamics of social changes in the entire truth-pyramid and sub-pyramids’ changes
  19. 19. The organizational structure or the sub- pyramid of SB can come in more ways. This is the general conception followed by what I call the Little Pyramid Theory of Human Society. After reading the text and the book, I will try to connect all these concepts to the changes in the SB case.
  20. 20. Reality is not what we perceive but what we believe in, for most  Faith is more important playing currency than atomic warheads. By managing peoples’ faith whether is right or wrong to use nuclear weapons you indirectly manage the final decision.  Faith is necessity – even physicist have to believe in their models enough to test them and spend energy, time and money. Or alleviate fears of losing tenure.  Capitalism is based on the faith in the monetary authority of the government to create currency. Blockchain showed that this faith can be decentralized with Bitcoin and other crypto assets.  Elon Musk is losing billions without any realistic profitability potential, and well educated investors keep pouring in money

  22. 22. The Pyramid Theory or (PT) is a theory that the authors believe properly describes the nature and structure of human society. The PT acknowledges that in each social group there is usually a pyramidal distribution of resources, recognitions and power. IMPORTANT NOTE: THE THEORY WITH EXAMPLES DESCRIBED ON THE SLIDES REPRESENTS AN IDEAL SOCIETY AS THE FOUNDERS OF VERITISM SEE IT. YOU WOULD SEE THAT THIS IS DIFFERENT FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE. NO MATTER HOW YOU ALLOCATE THE LEVELS OF THE PYRAMID, THE SAME SEGMENTS STICK TOGETHER.
  23. 23. The Academic LPT We can see that regularity also in the research community that also follows a pyramidal distribution. The most influential scientists are on top of the research pyramid while those who don’t provide meaningful contributions to science are greater in number and are on the bottom of it. By most reasonable criteria, people would always form a pyramidal distribution. Most cited in top journals Average citations in medium journals Seldom citations in lower tier journals Changed course of history
  24. 24. The Little Pyramid Theory (LPT) The PT holds true in the world of income allocation on global and national levels. The income based LPT can be reproduced literally in every country on Earth. There is small part of people on top of the income pyramid that have immense fortunes, and there are many other people who have little. Billionaires/The Wealthiest people People in developed countries Citizens of other countries LPT for income allocation on Global level
  25. 25. The Little Pyramid Theory (LPT) Doctors Lawyers Psychologists Politicians Revenues of companies Popstars The TP can apply to all segment of human society. If you take what different people charge for their services as a rough benchmark of value, or the number of votes politicians get, the PT still holds true. Think about the fees of the best doctors, lawyers the number of votes for politicians, revenues per company and many other segments where we have a pyramidal distribution.
  26. 26. The Little Pyramid Theory (LPT) You can apply PT almost everywhere. The authors research has shown that when speaking about people at different levels in the pyramid they have found more than 20 fundamental differences among different levels on the pyramid that are constant for each level of the pyramid. Even if you rearrange the pyramid, the traits of each level of the pyramid stay the same. Usually, different levels of these separate pyramids connect to each other. No matter how you arrange the levels and what you put down or up on the pyramid, these segments stick together and support each other spontaneously. For instance, if someone subjectively rearranges the pyramidal distribution by one reasonable differentiation criteria, the segments will still stick together.
  27. 27. The Little Pyramid Theory (LPT) The differences of this groups are visible in many, including the following segments: • Levels of Empathy and IQ • Personality traits like locus of control • Access to resources at younger age, etc It is important to note that the authors do not think that some parts of society are necessarily better than other segments of society and that everyone should be a billionaire or a Nobel laureate, but rather that in each segment of society there is a pyramidal distribution while for the upper part of the pyramid to exist, a bottom part needs to exist as well.
  28. 28. What are some initial starting points  So according to the PT we have the pyramidal allocation in journalism, in the military on each level, in sports and culture, literature and even window cleaning. The main concepts we see as a predictors of where a person gets on the pyramid are Empathy Quotient and cognitive or other abilities that lead to excellence.  The authors think that the PT has ramifications for social theory, politics, management, psychology, marketing, genetic studies and many other fields where it can find its implementation. Proper usage and wide diffusion of this theory should bring increased social stability and life-satisfaction.  The theory says that the society would be better, when allocation of power in it follows the moral pyramidal allocation where people with the highest general perception of morals and ability to create value for others, reach the top of society.  We believe that when everyone accepts rationally and emotionally their position in the pyramid, the society would be greatly improved as more people won’t want a lot more than they can have and everyone will get the subjective experience of the justice they deserve.
  30. 30. What motivates different levels of the pyramid to do what they do? Motivated by internal motivation to create value with full control of needs Motivated by internal motivation and minimal basic needs influencing judgement and decision making Different levels of the pyramids are motivated by different main motives. While the top of the pyramid is motivated more by creation of value appreciated by others and more importantly by creating value for themselves, the bottom of the pyramid is motivated by fear and satisfying basic needs or just the needs of others. Motivated by basic human needs (Veritism’s Human Needs Model) Motivated by eternal fear and satisfying basic needs
  31. 31. How different levels behave in human relationships They are emotionally neutral and go with the flow to optimize the human experiences They give at least as they take and try to keep balance Different levels of the pyramid have different emotional balances. Most domestic abusers, emotional and physical, are on bottom of the pyramid as they take a lot more than they give, while the top of the pyramid are neutral. They are balanced and can manage most situations well without guilt or sorrow. They are deeply emotionally invested and depending They take a lot more than they give (in relationships but also in capitalism: they have bigger consumer debt)
  33. 33. How many self-perceptions do they have? They don’t have egos but follow what they feel right. They might have some form of ego but are also capable to do right things People at different levels of the pyramid differ in the manifestation of ego they usually have. While the very top is beyond ego, because to get there they needed to adjust by tailoring internal motivation to external needs rather than their default desires, the bottom of the pyramid is moved by their created perceptions of themselves – egos and basic needs. They have frail egos and need self- confirmation (a lot of facebook friends for instance)
  34. 34. How to predict the right type for societal management They know what is right and minimal oversight is needed. They might know what is right but may be tempted People on top of the pyramidal distribution abide by their understanding of what is right while people on the bottom are moved by perceptions of what is right/wrong. In society, different management structures are needed for different levels of the society. People who came to the top of their fields – from being the best security guards and soldiers to being the best academics and reporters, are the ones who need the least micro management. They do the right things. They need to be managed in a system to do the right things They keep doing the wrong things
  35. 35. How some criminals are made? They may have tried few times in their life to success or do something meaningful and instead of looking the reason within themselves and improving, they start thinking that the world is made of cheaters. So they start to cheat. Example: - Swindler groups organizing fake investment conferences. Because they may lack intelligence they assume others are as well and try tricks, that to most people on top of the pyramid seem impossible to steal money with. - The best profile they use is “electrical engineer” although they are designers or other creative folk
  37. 37. Why some companies/politicians got the mainstream market despite inferior products/personalities? Convinced by honesty and the truth Convinced by both perceptions and internal motives In marketing it is important to see what is motivating people to buy. People on top are moved by their personal understanding of what is good for them, while people on the bottom are moved by perceptions and popular understandings. If they want to sell to the top of the pyramid, marketers need to use the truth and textual content. If they want to sell to people in the bottom use, images and deeply emotional videos and peer pressure based on perceptions would do far better. Motivated mostly by push strategies and perceptions
  38. 38. How to advertise to different levels of the pyramid according to LPT They know what they want and pay not to get ads They might subscribe to ads free services The way marketers can segment who is ready to pay for their services or subscriptions for ads free services can be done with the usage of the pyramid theory. In the age of free services there is one segment of society that will never subscribe to paid service no matter how much value it gets. This can be manifested and seen in the newspaper subscriptions and the type of people who pay them. They are easily managed and told what they want and will never upgrade to paid services when given more options They will subscribe to ads free services only when they have to
  39. 39. How to predict the right type for societal management The know what is right. They might know what is right but may be tempted People on top are moved by their personal understanding of what is right which is aligned with the law and general norms of what is good in society, while people on the bottom are moved by perceptions of what is right/wrong and not always aligned with the law. For the top of the pyramid self-management is optimal while for the more detailed and clear rules and procedures may be warranted no matter the field of society they relate to. They need to be managed to do the right things They keep doing the wrong things
  40. 40. How to advertise They prefer text (emails and books over videos) They prefer mixture of audio-visual channels and books. Different levels of the pyramid prefer different types of content. While the top prefers text over images, the bottom prefers emotionally heavy content usually in the form of videos. They prefer videos and vivid emotional content.
  43. 43. Some truths like global warming or vaccination statistics are obvious, yet many people can’t cope with the concepts. Different levels of the pyramid have different levels of truth acceptance (TA). TA levels They live the truth - do not profess it. They accept the truth, but don’t live it always. They accept the truth because it is popular. They would rather live a lie. Truth Acceptance is the Ability to accept things as they are. The higher you go the easier is to speak truthfully to people and investors. We have empirical evidence to prove this that this holds true for the best window cleaners to the best professors judged by objective criteria.
  45. 45. DIFFERENT LEVELS OF THE PYRAMID HAVE DIFFERENT TRUTH TOLERANCE LEVELS Truth tolerance levels You will get awarded You will get skepticism and lie You will get discriminated They will say you are crazy They might try to kill you Truth tolerance (TT) is tested by speaking those things that people want to conceal. Ability to accept things as they are is emblematic of the highest levels of the pyramid. The higher you go the easier is to speak truthfully to people and investors. We have empirical evidence to prove this: even about killing and declaring crazy. Majority of people have low TT.
  47. 47. DIFFERENT LEVELS OF THE PYRAMID HAVE DIFFERENT VALUE CREATION LEVELS Truth tolerance levels They create the most value for others. They create value because they want to. They create value because they have to. They destroy value. (serial criminals) To be on top of an individual pyramid people don’t need to become billionaires or presidents, but they can also be the best security guards, the best librarians, the best ice- cream sellers who all create the ultimate value for other people in their given roles. Those people, who are best in every role they have, are the top of this pyramid because they create more value other appreciate on a free market.
  48. 48. Different truth levels The truth people accept as theirs is different at different levels on the pyramid. The highest pyramid levels are aligned with discoveries from proper non-judgmental science created by the proper usage of scientific methodology by scientists with minds. The people at the lowest part of the pyramid are more inclined into improbable theories such as The Flat Earth Theory.
  50. 50. IMPLICIT EMPATHY “Knowing” things without seeing them or better said, making the best guesses possible.
  51. 51. DIFFERENT LEVELS OF THE PYRAMID HAVE DIFFERENT TRUTH TOLERANCE LEVELS Truth tolerance levels They will know who Satoshi is and will not tell others due to the right reasons. If they guess who Satoshi is they might tell to other people. They would never guess who Satoshi is. They will not try to guess. Implicit empathy means that some people with extended minds can come to the most probable conclusion without actually seeing them. This will be explained more in our Whitepaper. Taking a practical case, in short, people with bigger implicit empathy can guess who the mysterious Saotshi Nakamoto is the media has created legend out of just by reading the Wikipedia article about him.
  52. 52. How is “knowing” without seeing possible? To have this “power” of making sound guesses based on intuition people need active minds. Everyone can guess, but some people can guess better than others. Here are some rules our theory predicts should improve the potential of people to know more without seeing evidence: 1. They need not to have a strong ego and can see when others have it and twist their decisions 2. They need to have critical mind in understanding what can be real or not 3. They need to have life experience that tells them when people want to hide something 4. They have less prejudice in their reasoning and can notice when others think wrongly due to prejudice
  53. 53. How is “knowing” without seeing possible? The extended mind hypothesis means that people can somehow hear the voice of the writers by reading to their papers. It is not a sixth sense but it is just our mind and how we embed our mindful energy via the words and phrases we use. • It is how the best Venture Capitalist notice the worst entrepreneurs better than their peers • It is how the best businessmen become billionaires by seeing things better than their peers • It is how the best scientists get the hidden truths about different areas in their research • It is how most people can notice hidden intentions and desires in the voice of others
  54. 54. GENETIC FACTORS Is that people on similar levels of the pyramid are more similar to each other by important genetic traits than are people based on race or country of origin. What is this secret ingredient? The second contentious prediction our experiment should partially test:
  55. 55. DIFFERENT LEVELS OF THE PYRAMID HAVE DIFFERENT TRUTH TOLERANCE LEVELS Truth tolerance levels Genes can be connected to the power of the mind The brain gives us our IQ, but our mind give us our motivation, ideas and makes our brain produce results for us. We can artificially increase IQ one day with implants, but can we increase the mind? Our next experiment to which we invite you to participate, will try to open this question as well. How are genes connected to our minds? Do people at different levels on the pyramid differ more in the nature of their minds rather their IQ, race or creed? Our theory predicts that our MP Index (MindPower) Index is a better predicator of success in life than both IQ and EQ together.
  56. 56. The Little Pyramid Theory Some practical implications – to unleash the optimal human potential WE HAVE MANY CASE STUDIES AFFIRMING OUR THEORY – BUT EVERYONE SHOULD LOOK AROUND AND TEST THEM AND CREATE THE PYRAMIDAL DISTRIBUTION THEY DEEM RIGHT We leave to everyone to induce practical implications from this theory
  57. 57. HOW HIGH ARE YOU? The Little Pyramid Theory
