Superstition & Psychology -Sub:Theistic Essential Cognitive Base Construct Version: 0.1 Alpha

July 13, 2012

Some interesting visual logic

The following is a crude depiction of a thought process I had earlier.

Shorthanded to abstract programming logic format for compression(quick read/study)

and because I’m crazy.


Large sums of information is missing from this Document: This is essentially a free-writing session for me.

Formatting is incomeplete


Begin Rant

Question = Why is “God” “good?”


Initiate → Create hypothetical personality → Complete…

Assessment: Define Emotional Value of → |“God”|.

Natural Language Query = Is “God” a |good*| thing?


Subject = “God”

Logical Challenge = Value in |good*|

Define measure |Good*|: “of being beneficial to contributing to a positive emotional state.”


Analysis → Origin REF “God”

Key words= “Abraham, Christian, Monotheist, Bible”


Analysis for Compare = Bible

Bible REF “Stories”

Keep in mind for compare


variables “Christian, Atheist”


Personality execute:


# A Christian will read the Bible, and from it define god is “good thing” to believe in.



#An Atheist will read the Bible, and from it define god as a very “bad” thing, and in fact, evil.


Contemplate information difference…



Approximate | emotional tolerances to direct physical life interactions…


Minimal differences


Contemplate perceptual difference of Bible information processing…

Information is being |truncated|.


Define perceptual difference

# Information from the Bible as it is being read by the Devout Christian mind is being “ignored”


Contest Observation → Acquire response & output


INPUT: Why are you ignoring this “bad” thing.

OUTPUT: Its not a bad thing, You’re taking it out of context.


→ Cross examine to verify context…



Observe process →

If information = negative → Seek positive context.

If result of search = unproductive → Revert to blanket constant=”… personal God”

If result of search = productive → exclaim

If refuted → Revert to blanket constant


Subject output = invalid.


Hypothesize → Subject Christian has an emotional predisposition that is filtering out conflicting context.

Premise of “God is good” Must be met unconditionally.


Unconditionally = Absolute;

What if =/=


If “God” = not good


  1. Biblical information must be taken literally
    1. God would be evil.
    2. Jealous
    3. Inferiority complex (needing to prove self to other entities)
  2. “God” entity would be “too human” with morality non-differing.
  3. Personal definition breakdown?
    1. Meaning, purpose, etc…


Find Parallel disorders…



Abuse Victim?


  1. Physical harm?
    1. None, unless by peers.
    2. Must consider point of view of → a family members reaction if they take up a
      1. anti-religious position: Rebellious
      2. non-religious position: Avoidance
  2. Emotional Harm?
    1. N/A – Subjects are re-socialized to acceptance.
  3. Heavily Conditioned (and Reconditioned)
    1. Positive reinforcement: Promise of rewards
    2. Negative reinforcement: Promise of “guilt removal”
    3. Positive enforced Punishment: Moral basis (or else) scenario
    4. Negative enforced Punishment: “Wont be able to…” scenario.
    5. The younger the subject the more successful the conditioning.

Is it Psychosis?



  1. Self induced, often emotional but not visual.
  2. Voluntary
  3. Can distinguish direct physical reality. (Tactile)


Perceptions are displaced in projection.

  1. Seeing unique personal ideas in target view → Observed
  2. Moral concepts projected to external personification → “Absolute” “Objective” Moral system.
    1. Personal choice justification by projection
      1. Positive – “God” commands to perform acts of kindness.
      2. Negative – “God” commands for retribution → Religiously sanctioned War + Defining of evil (bad guys) Scenario.
  3. Events of irreconcilable causality are projected to “Blame/Gratitude” Scenario
    1. Positive – Blessings
    2. Negative – Tests of faith


  4. Believes things that are not true?
    1. Conflicts of Knowledge
      1. When limited by ignorance (To topic of question)
      2. In vacuum of explanation.
    2. When beneficial to relevant emotional state → as validating beliefs.


Psychosis = Partial support.

  1. Superstitious Psychology
    1. Perceptions of Reality
    2. perceptions
    3. Delusional behaviors
    4. Psychosis → diagnose


Is it an Addiction?

  1. Withdrawal: Necessity (absolute) “I need this”
  2. Denial: “Thats not what it means”
  3. Rationalization: “This is a good thing…”
  4. Defiant to Opposition
    1. “If you’re trying to take this away from me, you must be against it. You must be bad.”
  5. Defiance to conflicting realities
    1. Scientific basis: “Evolution”
    2. Alternative religions: “The wrong religion”
    3. Alternative Moralities: “Wicked”


More focus on “addiction”


end thought…
