The following is a glossary of what I personally mean when I say these words. This is not an attempt to impose my definitions as the correct ones or an invitation to debate the definitions. It is only meant to apply to anything I say or write. As language is meant to be a shortcut to communication I try not to spend too much time discussing definitions. These books use definitions from universal reality unless otherwise noted. Terms using endoreality definitions are often denoted by single quotes.
Alienation: 1. The process by which many smaller endogroups are created within a wider endogroup. This can happen organically as a wider endogroup dissolves or weakens and it is also a political strategy used to weaken rival endogroups. 2. The separation of a part of the self, such as seen in those with refracted or amputated cores. 3. Separation created between two or more endogroups.
Altruism: An exosocial act of assistance to another in order to create egalitarian balance. If altruism is balanced with gratitude and approval it will establish a euphoric bond.
America: Two continents and 35 countries.
American: Residents of any part of America.
Amputated core: The alienation of a person’s core self to cause the person’s own core to be seen as an enemy outsider.
Anarchy: Society free of subordination to endogroups at any level. An exosocial society.
Anger: Anger can be defensive, dominant or predatory. Defensive anger protects a euphoric source or membrane. Defensive anger is against external threat and can be experienced by anyone. Dominant anger occurs within an endogroup and is used to sublate another. Predatory anger is a mark of an endoself and is used to obtain secondary euphoria through the stress response of another.
Anglo / Germanic: Living in states that speak primarily English and heavily adopt Anglo culture or are part of Germanic-speaking Europe. Specifically, anyone living in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, UK, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa. Notable for an industrial-scientific endo-idealism that took early precedence over the various church, filial or other endo-idealisms elsewhere. Recently, this group were the global endo-ideal through transcendental industrial-scientific endo-idealism. Currently being replaced by the mono-empire.
Anonymous: A stigmergic method of collaboration and the people who use it.
Approval theory of value: The value of goods is based on the amount of social approval they represent.
Approval economy: Economy based on societal approval and acceptance.
Authoritative endogroup: The endogroup with the coercive force available to enable them to define reality and law.
Auto-coercion: Transparent, consensual coercion a society applies onto itself.
Auto-objects: People objectified by themselves who thereby become subjects with the power to objectify others.
Autogenocide: Genocide instigated remotely, usually though media incited sectarianism or trade of drugs or weapons to the targeted population, but performed by the population on itself.
Autonomy: 1. Freedom from involuntary, unbalanced interactions created through possession of a healthy personal membrane and network of primary euphoric sources and conduits. 2. The right to governance by user group including governance of self for those things which impact only self.
Billion: A billion is a million million (bi + million), but the U.S. changed it to mean a thousand million so that they could have ‘billionaires’, a classic example of reality manipulation to serve an exceptional myth and magical words subject to the whim of the endo-ideal used to create endo-identity.
Binding Chaos: 1. The natural method of using extrapolation, experience and experimentation to bind chaotic input into meaningful packets of information as our brains are designed to do. 2. The use of extreme coercive force to prevent chaotic systems from living, evolving or creating change. 3. The transition from primordial chaos to today’s segregated and isolated world. 4. Endosocialism.
Boredom: A sign of severe psychic distress which occurs when someone is offered a euphoric interaction which they cannot access or a third party is attempting to intercept a euphoric interaction. This is the chronic condition of an endoself.
Butterfly: An idea which can cause a hurricane of change. Reference to the butterfly effect.
Caregiver: A person whose work involves the care of other people, animals, communities or ecosystems.
Caregiver-self: A circle of expansion which includes or replicates those relationships first formed by a baby or small child with their home and caregivers, particularly if that circle has created an endogroup.
Centripetal force: Acts on unequal populations in forced transactions to create ponzi schemes of celebrity, wealth and power and endogroups. Slight advantages become huge by the requirement that everyone support those with resources or power in order to benefit. Creates and upholds endogroups.
Centrifugal force: Egalitarian force created in opposition to ponzi schemes which serves to either strengthen the existing ponzi scheme by increasing the defending force or collapse it.
Censorship by noise: Using celebrity or official status to amplify certain voices or opinions to the disadvantage of others who may have better or opposing information. Using astroturfing spam for the same purpose.
Charity: An endosocial act of giving which results in establishing the giver as the endo-ideal and the receiver as the negative image. This differs from altruism in the fact that no euphoric conduit is established and debt and guilt are incurred by the receiver, along with a negative image status.
Class: A societal construct (endoreality) resulting from classification of people relative to the endo-ideal. Modern usage is usually related to wealth endo-idealism.
Cognitive dissonance: Distress caused by a conflict between dominant and authoritative endoreality or universal reality and endoreality.
Commoner: A stable majority created to uphold the status quo, or overthrow it during times of revolution. Societal structures are designed for the comfort and coercion of commoners. Mass acceptance of this role creates a solid block of uniform opinions which can be used to create and uphold oligarchy and ostracize witches and wretches. Reflector at a state level or higher.
Community: A group affiliated around allocation of common resources. Communities may be societies, where allocation is through social relationships, or trade economies, where allocation is through trade.
Consciousness: A subset of reality filtered through empathic networks and sometimes subjected to the laws of endoreality through an endofilter.
Concentric circle: Peer promoted voices or ideas in a transparent, permeable structure where those at the centre receive the most amplification and ideas are audited and taught to the outer circles by knowledge bridges.
Corporate feminism: Feminism which emanated from the United States in the 1960s and was heavily guided by both the CIA and corporate interests. It created an endogroup out of an exosocial struggle for liberation.
Creation-self: A circle of expansion which includes those relationships related to creation. Often trapped into a career endogroup.
Creation euphoria: can be imparted through a euphoric object.
Culture: The euphoric conduits to divinity unique to a nation. Includes dancing, songs, art, spirituality, some aspects of creation, rituals, and euphoric objects. Does not include the endosocial trappings often associated with it such as exceptional myth and endo-ideal.
Currency: Abstract, dissociated approval which allows access to all benefits of society without contribution, membership or acceptance of the society’s values or norms. Endosocial token to replace gratitude and approval and replace exosocial interactions with endosocial transactions.
Death Eaters: Members of a society where the norms or culture are driven by sadism. The agony of others is not a side effect of their actions but a goal. Death eaters are distinct from those with an individual personality disorder in that their society’s norms, structure and actions are all constructed to feed their sadism. An endogroup supporting endoselves.
Democracy: Governance by representative or direct voting systems.
Demographics: Objectification and alienation of people through further division of the already objectified populations, usually in an attempt to create new endogroup identities.
Dignity: Preservation of ownership over one’s own inner circles of self. This ownership creates personal integrity and strength.
Disciplinary spaces: Michel Foucault’s idea of disciplinary spaces included state institutions such as hospitals, schools, factories and military barracks. I expand his definition to homes for women who are economically, legally or otherwise tied to them and states or regions where borders lock some populations away from means of survival and create a global surveillance system.
Discovery–self: A circle of expansion which contains those relationships unique to discovery. Often trapped into an academic endogroup.
Dissociation: 1. Separation of individuals from the dependency relationships which make up society. 2. Separation of self in the case of refracted or amputated cores.
Diversity: There is diversity between every two humans. In endoreality, this term is used to create endo-identities, which is the opposite of diversity. The word should be replaced with anti-endo-idealism to indicate that a thing is not restricted to the endo-ideal. A better path would be to simply point out endo-idealism and leave anti-endo-idealism as the default state.
Divinity: The source of euphoria. Possibly also Jung’s collective unconscious and the source of Kant’s synthetic a priori knowledge.
Divinity-self: the self created by euphoric interactions with divinity. These can include spiritual sources but can also be found in everyday euphoric sources, whether or not the subject experiences them as spiritual.
Divination: The deliberate acquisition of divine knowledge through skill, following a methodology. Some rationalism and even some science falls under this category.
Dominant endogroup: The endogroup which has the subject person or population most immersed in its endoreality or most sublated to it.
Economy: Resource allocation.
Emotion: Response to anticipation or experience of access to euphoria or anticipation or experience of an attack on a euphoric source.
Empathic bond: An empathic conduit that is strong and somewhat permanent.
Empathic conduit: The means by which emotion can be shared or jointly experienced between two sources.
Empathy: The ability to share the experience of an emotion with another through empathic conduits.
Endo–exceptionalism: Adherence to the exceptional myth of an endogroup.
Endo–ideal: The idealized self of an endogroup, embodying all virtue, ownership, victimhood and credit.
Endo–idealism: Adherence to the laws of endoreality which attribute all virtue, ownership, victimhood and credit to the endo-ideal and all vice, guilt and punishment to the negative image.
Endo–identity: A magical word used to set an endogroup off as exceptional and create difference where none exists.
Endofilter: A cognitive filter which causes the subject to filter all information from universal reality according to the laws of endoreality.
Endogroup: A group of affiliated people who use inclusion and shunning to define their society and are bound by an endosocial membrane. An endogroup may be temporally unlimited to allow ownership and appropriation of property, culture, achievements and victimhood from generations past.
Endoreality: A reality which exists only within an endogroup and is created with the laws of endoreality. Endoreality is filled with magical words which impart no meaning but serve to cast people as the negative image or endo-ideal. Endoreality is relative and has no meaning outside the perspective of the endo-ideal or endoself. Endoreality can change at the whim of an endo-ideal.
Endoself: Predator who can only exist, or prefers to exist, through acquisition of secondary euphoria.
Endoself contagion: The process by which exosocial interactions are blocked and discouraged in a population of endoselves, leading exosocial people to develop endoself behaviours through necessity.
Endosocial: Existing within the confines of an endogroup or endoself or according to the laws of endoreality.
Endosocial membrane: A membrane which blocks empathic and euphoric conduits and thereby creates endoselves and endogroups.
Endosocial martyrdom: Euphoria is forcibly taken from the endo-ideal to the masses
Endosocial tyranny: Euphoria is forcibly taken from the masses to the endo-ideal
Endosocialism: Belief that societies ought to be ordered within endogroup power structures.
Envy: Envy is the sense of injustice felt by members of an endogroup if external acclaim or a coveted item is held by someone outside the endogroup or its endo-ideal.
Epistemic community: A way to provide elite expertise for projects without relinquishing control to an elite oligarchy. People or ideas are peer promoted from within the user group and communities remain transparent and permeable to everyone. Acceptance or rejection of ideas is always up to the user group to avoid an unassailable oligarchy. Typically organized in transparent, permeable concentric circles.
Equality: An observably false idea that all people are equal used to justify imposing involuntary transactions of unequal force on diverse populations and preventing equivalence. Results in power accumulation.
Equivalence: The idea that all members of a society are entitled to equivalent benefit from the society and no one should be valued by standards of achievement which others have greater ability to attain. No one should be forced or coerced to strive for goals they do not choose or prevented from striving for those they do. No contribution to society is inherently of greater value than another although the degree of effort may be. Exosocialism.
Euphoria: Joy which contributes to well-being and self-esteem. May be acquired through euphoric conduits to primary euphoric sources.
Euphoric bond: A euphoric conduit that is strong and somewhat permanent.
Euphoric conduit: A path or method allowing the transfer of euphoria from one primary source to another.
Euphoric object: An object which contains euphoria from its creator or previous or current owners.
Exceptional lives: Lives which are given far more value by media and society due to endo-ideal status.
Exceptional myth: Exceptional myths encourage both unjustified glorification of the group and its endo-ideal and unjustified demonization of the negative images as well as other endogroups and their endo-ideals. The five primary types of exceptional myths address creation, leaders, superiority, persecution and destiny. A purely magical creation, like the endo-identity; its purpose is its function, not its meaning.
Excitement: The anticipation of primary or secondary euphoria.
Exogroup: This does not exist as an exogroup is simply a cluster of actions.
Exoself: A person with no, or very few, endosocial attachments and a large exosocial network.
Exosocial: Pertaining to exosocial expansion.
Exosocial expansion: Uninhibited expansion of self through continual establishment of euphoric conduits through relationships, discovery, creation, spirituality, etc.
Exosocial networks: Created by conduits between primary sources of euphoria to allow balanced euphoric interactions.
Exosocialism: Belief in the universal freedom to uninhibited exosocial expansion.
Extranational: Existing outside national or state structures.
Face: An integral part of a person, signifying a healthy personal membrane, free of debt and able to establish balanced euphoric interactions.
Fear: Fear is anticipation of an attack on a euphoric source. In a primarily exosocial person, the feared attack is on a euphoric conduit. In a primarily endosocial person, the feared attack is on an endogroup.
Feminism: The belief in the liberation of women to fulfill their full potential through uninhibited exosocial expansion. As Sylvia Federici and others have pointed out, the word feminism is a poor substitute for the concept of women’s liberation. Removal of male and other types of endo-idealism would be much more helpful in achieving liberation than establishment of endogroup feminism.
First age of nations: A great variety of autonomous and complete societies, occasionally networked and sharing or trading with each other, which people lived in for hundreds of thousands of years.
Forbidden chamber: A construction which conceals secrets of the guilt of the powerful and forbids access to effect the endoreality law that knowledge of endo-ideal guilt is a greater guilt than the original crime.
Fourth age of nations: A potential society we could develop, more diverse, flexible and mutually supportive than the first tribal one and more rewarding and globally beneficial than the third parasitical, supranational one. A new framework must meet both our social needs and our need to develop to our full potential, ensure local autonomy but protect global commons, and put social responsibility back in communities but provide a global safety net for those shunned or harmed locally. This age would hopefully finally provide us with a balance between autonomy, diversity and society through exosocialism.
Fraternity: Decentralized patriarchy resulting from politics which espoused Liberty, Equality, Fraternity. Fraternity as a goal is not suitable to global collaboration as it implies both equality and unanimity of principles. It has resulted in a fraternity of endo-ideals aligned under endosocialism. They still claim the right to control the lives of other people and occupy the top strata of society like patriarchy but now they bear no responsibility for governance or any participation in society.
Gender: A social construct (endoreality) created in order to impose power relations based on sex with a male endo-ideal and a female negative image.
Genocide: The murder of a nation-self.
Gift: Goods or services allocated to a person who is not automatically entitled to a share by social norms, or goods or services one is not automatically entitled to by social norms, such as personal or rare property. Gifts are not an entitlement and frequently carry expectations such as eventual reciprocity or future friendship.
Governance: 1. Enforced subordination to an endo-ideal and enforced membership in an endogroup. 2. Caretaker responsibility of the user group.
Gratitude: A feeling of well-being and admiration directed towards the provider in an altruistic interaction.
Guilt: Acknowledgement of an unbalanced transaction resulting in debt to the guilty party. Guilt is transferable.
Gynophobia: Terror of women, the fear of becoming or being cast as a woman (the negative image), or a fear of the loss of patriarchal power or male endo-idealism. Particularly prevalent in those with an amputated core.
Hate: Hate is the need to block a potential or formerly euphoric bond.
Holosocial: A social group which includes everyone. May be exosocial but may also refer to endosocialism under a global mono-empire.
Homo economicus: The endo-ideal of classical economists. A pure endoself with no goals outside of the exploitation of others for personal power accumulation.
Honour: Hierarchical approval awarded from the endo-ideal, signifying the condition of not being the negative image.
Hostile seductive coercion: A force of seductive coercion from outside the society with interests in opposition to those of the society.
Idea based collaboration: collaboration that develops or verifies an idea or information.
Idol: object of euphoric storage for an endogroup.
Ideologues: Members of endogroups with an exceptional myth based on ideas attributed to them.
Independence: The state of living free from dependencies. This is impossible in reality but can be simulated by the use of currency to abstract human dependency.
Inhumanity: A failure to recognize people outside your personal endosocial group as human, indicated by a lack of empathy and marked by a denial of their needs to live dignified lives.
Integrity: Strength of personal membrane and exosocial network.
Interaction: Mutual empathic or euphoric transfer through action and reaction. If these interactions are not balanced, through reciprocity, gratitude, reparations, or other methods, they will result in a power transfer which will create an endosocial relationship of power or separation.
Iron law of oligarchy: Theory of Robert Michels, “Who says organization, says oligarchy”. This theory says that oligarchy is inevitable and it is used as a justification for fascism. Oligarchy is inevitable under endosocialism but not through exosocialism.
Jealousy: Fear of a negative change to one’s own endogroup status due to the relative rise of another.
Joy: The experience of euphoric energy obtained through euphoric conduits to primary sources such as nations, creation or discovery. An endoself may feel excitement, but never joy.
Knowledge bridge: People who help disseminate information from an expert to a novice level of understanding and collectively audit what the epistemic community is doing. Besides being essential for education and auditing, this is important to avoid demagogues who have the ability and time to develop mass appeal but are not the source of expertise. Epistemic communities and knowledge bridges allow elite expertise a direct path of communication to the entire user group and provide a path for anyone in the user group to achieve elite ebxpertise if they wish.
Laughter: Laughter is a reaction to the experience of euphoria or awareness of endoreality. The seven types of laughter are experience of euphoria, self affirmation, self destruction, social affirmation, social exclusion, endogroup domination and endogroup submission.
Laws: Coercive strictures which reflect the laws of endoreality.
Liberation: Freedom to continue exosocial expansion.
Libertarian: Desirous of liberty, as the freedom to do anything one desires, without social responsibility. Very popular ideology among endoselves.
Liberty: Coercion, responsibility and dependency are part of all human existence. The endosocial illusion of liberty for a few is created through dissociation, enabled by the trade economy. Exosocial liberty is freedom from involuntary transactions of unequal force and freedom to continue exosocial expansion.
Lifegiver: A woman who has given birth.
Lifegiver–self: The initial self created between a lifegiver and an infant.
Love: Love is a desire to create or maintain euphoric bonds. Love has three stages: attraction, marked by excitement and intense curiosity, connection, marked by joy in experiencing another, and expansion, at which point the destruction of the new shared self would cause severe trauma.
Lust: Avarice, or a desire for possession. In lust, the three stages are changed to lust, manifesting as an intense desire for possession, possession, during which the endoself seeks outside reflection in the form of admiration of their new possession and lastly, disillusionment, boredom and punishment of the object which is blamed for the disappointment.
Magic: 1. The ability to create or access a reality different from universal reality, used in both divination and in creation of endorealities. 2. The process of causing ideas or people to be shunned or accepted through the creation of endogroups, endo-ideals and negative images. 3. The transfer of guilt, especially through the use of magic words and ritual. There are several other types of magic but these are the primary meanings I refer to.
Magic words: Words whose usage is unrelated to their meaning in universal reality. Words used solely for the purpose of magic, such as creating an endogroup or casting information as authoritative or not based on association with the endo-ideal or negative image.
Masculinist: Male endo-idealist.
Masculinist theory: theory based on research that only includes men or is presented from an exclusively male point of view or which sets the experience of men as the normative standard.
Megaphone: A platform able to reach a large number of people.
Migratory endo–ideals: When a transcendental endogroup has an overpopulated group of endo-ideals, or they are under pressure, they will begin to swarm by creating a multitude of smaller endogroups at lower levels. This results in alienated societies and in the colonization of negative image groups both within and without the original endogroup.
Mono–empire: The transcendental global empire of the third age of nations.
Nation: Layered and overlapping societies gathered for community, cooperation and sharing, and existing across borders and generations. Nations may include sacred objects, rites, land and culture.
Nation–self: A circle of expansion which contains those relationships unique to a nation. Often trapped into a state endogroup.
Negative image: An endogroup role which causes a person to adopt the perspective of an external endo-ideal and uphold the laws of endoreality. Seen as the inverse of the endo-ideal. Embodies all vice, guilt and shame assignment within the endogroup.
Neo–necromancer: The powerful of the third age who seek to control populations through occupation of their most intimate circle of self, that containing control over the body, mind, self and life.
Outgroup: A population not included in, or shunned by, an endogroup. This does not include the negative image which is within the endogroup.
Paedosadist: There is no such thing as a sexual orientation called paedophilia. A sexual orientation, or sex, requires consenting partners. It is not sex if some of those involved are called victims, that is rape. Someone attracted to rape has sexual sadism disorder or paraphilic coercive disorder. Someone attracted to the rape of children is a paedosadist. A paedosadist who acts on their impulses is a criminal paedosadist and one who does not is a non-offending paedosadist.
Parasites: Those who obtain secondary euphoria by intercepting interactions between two primary sources.
Passive genocide: The denial of life essentials to populations where people will die without access to them.
Patriarchy: A form of male and filial endo-idealism with a hierarchical social structure and a paternal elder as each familial endo-ideal.
Pedosadist: US spelling, see paedosadist definition.
Personal membrane: A strong and permeable inner circle of self which controls intimacy and permits the establishment of euphoric and empathic conduits.
Photoshop: Remove aspects of a story which the writer does not deem relevant or agree with and leave only those which support the writer’s bias.
Ponzi scheme: 1. A pyramid scheme algorithm which requires those at the bottom to support those at the top in order to benefit. This type of scheme never benefits more than a few. 2. Societal structure in which everyone tries to acquire celebrity, wealth and power, creating a centripetal force that holds oligarchs in place. Egalitarian systems imposed on unequal populations tend to ponzi.
Population: The people objectified and owned by the endo-ideals of an endogroup.
Power: 1. Power is energy acquired from unequal force which can only be achieved through transactions. There is no idle or inert power and there is no benevolent power. 2. Social approval that causes others to identify with and emulate the powerful ahead of themselves or others. This power can be used to realize one’s own will or include or shun the will or person of others and it can also be used to accumulate wealth, celebrity, credit or any other offering that the social group brings. Once power is established, it provides the unequal force which can be used to turn every interaction into a transaction in which the powerful gain more power.
Predation: Obtaining secondary euphoria through involuntary transactions of unequal force.
Predators: Those who obtain secondary euphoria from others through stress, pain, obstruction and destruction. Endoselves.
Prey: Those with damaged personal membranes and euphoric depletion or those with expanded euphoria and no method of protecting themselves from predatory or egalitarian forces.
Pride: An endo-ideal emotion, a surge of power and affirmation of their endo-ideal status.
Primary euphoria: Euphoria obtained through direct, personal interactions with other living thngs, nations, including cultural experiences, euphoric objects, discovery, creation or spirituality.
Privacy: Privacy is ownership of an individual membrane and control over one’s own circles of intimacy and the ability to establish one’s own boundaries of intimacy. Privacy is sovereignty over the most intimate circle of self. It includes control over the body, the mind, the self and life.
Pure nationalists: Those that try to create endo-identities and exceptional myths around nations.
Race: A social construct (endoreality) created in order to impose power relations by arbitrary classifications according to real or imagined heredity.
Reaction: A movement demanding change back to a time when a larger portion of the people at the top of the ponzi scheme of power benefited from it. Reactionaries have no interest in changing underlying principles or helping those at the bottom except with promises of reforms trickling down. Reforms in a ponzi scheme will never trickle down as what feeds the top, bleeds the bottom.
Ren: Confucian term once translated as manliness, which is, in the old sense of the word man, humanity. Described most clearly in The Analects where it mentions equitable relationships and healthy self-valuation. A term that may be somewhat equivalent to face or personal membrane.
Reflection: The process whereby the empathic conduits of a person are all directed to an external endo-ideal and they act as an obedient enforcer of the laws of endoreality for that endo-ideal.
Reflector: An endogroup role which causes a person to adopt the perspective of an external endo-ideal and uphold the laws of endoreality. Seen as obedient and selfless and so avoids the guilt and shame assignment of the negative image.
Refraction: The process whereby a person’s core self is occupied by an external self and they give up all autonomy and will to the occupying endo-ideal. Extreme dissociation can result from refraction.
Resistance: Building new systems and exosocial networks and defending them against oppressive coercion. Removing power from those at the top of the ponzi scheme by removal of reflection of endoreality. Removing institutional power by creating and defending alternatives and allocating guilt to the perpetrators instead of the negative image. Blocking endosocial authority.
Revolution: A change of the top of an oligarchical system, usually replacing an old oligarch with a representative of the largest or most powerful other group. The paradigm remains unchanged.
Sandbox villages: Societies (do not have to be geographically defined) for trying out new ideas for governance and collaboration.
Scientific superstition: Fear by scientists to look at topics outside of their endoreality which is largely the perspective of very endosocial people, primarily endo-ideals and endoselves. Superstition causes a refusal to study, or even acknowledge, anything associated with their negative image, primarily women and indigenous people. Scientists often misrepresent this superstition as skepticism, which is withholding judgment, the opposite of superstition.
Sealed well: Databases which have access controlled by web pages.
Second age of nations: Hierarchical trade empires which included a powerful extranational merchant class which stood between artisans and the upper stratas who owned property and those buying their products. These merchants had access to foreign knowledge and access to those who controlled power and wealth in more than one empire. The widespread adoption of currency provided them with dissociated membership in multiple societies and access to all the privileges of membership. They also had their own networks within the merchant strata of many nations and even frequently their own international language.
Secondary euphoria: Euphoria, or a substitute for it, obtained through fear or other stress responses of another, or filth and destruction. Possibly related to adrenalin or dopamine since the same people seem attracted to these as well. This is not the same as primary euphoria as it does not result in the experience of joy.
Secrecy: 1. Ownership of the intimate knowledge of another. 2. Ownership and control over the information belonging to and affecting a group, including information obtained through violation of the privacy of others.
Seductive coercion: Coercion which persuades rather than forces but can be much more powerful than force, particularly if unnoticed or acknowledged. Manipulation and control of information and authoritative endoreality. Based on shunning and inclusion.
Self: The unique positioning of an individual relative to society created through a network of empathic and euphoric conduits.
Self-governance: Governance by user group.
Sex: There are three powers of sex. The exosocial power creates strong euphoric and empathic bonds with another person. The endosocial power creates an endosocial membrane, with the subjects joined within the membrane or divided by it. The endogroup power can be used to sublate one self to another within an endogroup membrane.
Shame: Shame is the experience of being shunned and the internalization of the perception of the self as the negative image. Shame inhibits the establishment of euphoric conduits.
Share: Division of goods or services to benefit all participants. Sharing is considered fair if all participants have an equal amount or as much as they want or need. Sharing is typically practised among members of a physical community such as a tribe or family or an endogroup such as a corporation or state. It is distinct from giving, which is the allocation of goods or services the recipient is not socially entitled to.
Singularity: Common definition is of a technological singularity, a time when artificial intelligence will have progressed to the point of a greater-than-human intelligence. I refer to social or societal singularities to describe society that is already far too complex and requiring far too much information processing for individual comprehension to be attainable. We now require mass collaboration to understand any aspect of society or to be able to rationally govern ourselves.
Social singularity: A singularity between all living things, near and distant, collaborative or hostile.
Societal singularity: A singularity achieved between the members of a specific society.
Society: A network of interdependent relationships between people.
Solidarity: The (usually revolutionary) demand that reflectors (the Commoners) unquestioningly uphold endoreality. This is necessary as revolution needs a large hammer with which to remove the old oligarchy and replace it with themselves and also because a revolution which calls itself The [endo-identity] People loses credibility if those people disagree. Primarily, this is a demand for sublation of the mind as it always eventually requires reflection of reality that is at extreme odds with universal reality.
Sorrow: Sorrow is a result of euphoric depletion due to the blockage of euphoric conduits, the unavailability of euphoric sources, the need for an increase in euphoric sources prior to exosocial expansion or the assignment of debt through guilt. There are three primary types of sorrow: loss sorrow, when euphoric sources are no longer available, expansion sorrow, when exosocial expansion is forced, restricted or diverted, and shame sorrow, when exosocial freedom is lost due to the destruction of self by shame.
State: Highly militarized partitioning of societies into economic markets imposed for segregating, competing, allocating and establishing property ownership. Endogroup.
Stigmergy: Action based method of collaboration which follows an idea. If people understand and agree on a goal, everyone has autonomy as to how or whether they work to further that goal. Communication is through transparency. Secrecy and ownership of ideas are in opposition to stigmergy.
Strata slumming: Fulfillment of a humiliation or degradation fantasy by associating or identifying with those one perceives as the negative image. Often a precursor to an ownership claim by a migratory endo-ideal.
Stratification: The creation of different classes of society and formation of hierarchy based on roles.
Sublation: The process by which an individual self or an endogroup is merged into a larger endogroup and identifies more strongly with the larger group’s endo-ideal than with their earlier self.
Supranational: Above the power of states or nations.
Sympathy: Pity for another as a result of cognitive imagination and moral judgment.
Systems: Interacting people, ideas, infrastructure and labour which work in a common area, similar to ministries in today’s governance. Health, transportation and housing are examples of three different systems. Systems can overlap and cooperate with each other and they have local and global levels. The global level usually acts as an epistemic community of ideas and the local level controls acceptance and rejection of ideas and implementation of them.
Systems of dissociation: Systems constructed to isolate and divide people from their basic needs or each other and their ability to collaborate.
The Taxpayer: The obedient reflector of industrial endo-idealism, closely related to The Working Class and The Honest Hardworking Man. Someone willing to exploit their communities and the unpaid labour of lifegivers and caregivers and employ reversed accounting to accuse others of parasiting off of them. Serves an abstracted endo-ideal anthropomorphized as The Economy.
Third age of nations: A supranational empire where trade has fully abstracted the relationship between oligarchs and the people they exploit. The merchants are so powerful and their extranational society so networked, they control the states with a higher supranational form of governance and law in the form of trade agreements and treaties. Unlike power under the elite of the second age, the supranational class at the top of today’s global empire does not need to govern or be involved in any way with the divided state-societies below them. Power has become completely dissociated from governance or the well being of the people of the world under a global mono-empire.
Thought bubble: A group which is closed to outside thought by forum or propaganda. An endogroup with a strong endoreality.
Torture: An external force instigating a struggle for control over the most intimate circle of self, that containing the body, mind, self and life. An attempt to fully sublate another.

It also has the same powers as sex: the exosocial power creates strong euphoric and empathic bonds with another person, the endosocial power creates an endosocial membrane, with the subjects joined within the membrane or divided by it, and the endogroup power can be used to sublate one self to another within an endogroup membrane.
Wealth: An accumulation of social approval, abstracted or otherwise.
