Excerpt from previous posting:

... The dopamine in the critical-thinking regions is a parallel to it, and this dopamine is uniquely regulated, specifically, I'm personally stating, due to their volume-needs being dependent upon values set within other brain-regions - while other, non-regulated regions simply match dopamine to their internally-available information levels.

Expanding on this fact, this region is intended to have its regulation set by “affirmation” signals, which are essentially Oks, telling the region that a certain quantity of dopamine is necessary. In response to these Oks, the region adjusts its dynamic regulation to meet them. A lack of these dopamine-affirmatives means a deficiency, and that deficiency is Mental Stress. An over-abundance is an arrogance and selfishness, and produces those same traits in the people with them – See: Sociopathy, Pathological-Lying, Being-a-Dick.
It is not Reward, and there is no Reward.
I have now enabled the world to be saved, thank-you for your attention.

Btw, what would a newborn baby be experiencing Reward over?

And if this one item, critical-thinking brain-region dopamine, is adjusted to meet a measure set by preceding brain-region outputs, and upon doing so, no mental stresses occur for the duration of which it's matching... then how can there be another element to Mental Stress? If it's matched for 5-days, and for 5-days no stresses occur, then what does that tell you?

What is this other magical mental stress that never shows itself, which doesn't impact anything, and which doesn't have an adverse effect? Why should such an invisible and non-tangible thing be cared about? And why does it share the same term with Mental Stress, when it isn't anything like it?

It gets more complicated than this, though: There can be too much affirmation towards some thought, and not enough towards other - within the same brain. This is where brain-programming, concept-development, executable thought-templates start coming into play. Yes, you can program your own brain, and create your own complex tools within it that execute functions upon will.

Rationalization for the Stated Mental Stress Identity, and Some Comment Regarding Dopamine

Further down is the comment regarding dopamine. The Mental Stress rationalizations here have some additionals, somewhere - I'll post any significant ones I come across. The identity I gave, which should be the identity, will no doubt seem instinctively unlikely to some people who've been studying dopamine brain-effects for duration using the 'Reward' concept - but this would have never been compatible with the Reward label (which itself is not compatible with what it's being applied to - regarding both social and consumer interactions), and so it's not entirely surprising that it has been lying somewhat in the open without being pieced together. Btw, that piecing-together would be Reasoning, which is attributed to the prefrontal-cortex region - but, while a type of calculated reasoning is definitely accomplished through that area, I think there exists another form of reasoning, and that natural, automated reasoning is anterior insula enabled and provided, and maybe also there self-assembling prior to be run through frontal regions.

Mental Stress:

I've a list of reasons why Stress should be exactly this, and nothing extra. These are some I responded with to someone who didn't appreciate the premise:

- People befitting full Psychopath qualification experience significantly less, to no stress, compared to the average person. The difference between one Psychopathic and someone not, is the psychopath has shallow ability to empathize, and their consideration and comprehension of things is much smaller, while their critical-thinking -regions dopamine regulation is high. Their low emotional/consideration skills are anterior insula brain-region dopamine marked. Even though their prefrontal-cortex/striatum dopamine is typically non-challenged by the extent and detail of consideration determined by anterior insula qualities, the fact that they have an unusually-low ability to consider and comprehend means that their typical surplus of prefrontal/striatum dopamine can come under exhaustion in moments where such people are imposed with having to actually work something out, because their understanding of the factors of whatever-subject-is-imposed is, of course, low, and that makes them have to do a lot more work to reach conclusion on that subject than does a typical person, who has a more developed pre-existing comprehension to start thinking from - and in those momentary situations, those Psychopathic can still become stressed.

The above, all on its own, is a near-proof, and I'm surprised it hasn't been picked up on before and put to use - but, then again, this first requires my dopamine re-labeling information, from a few posts back, so I suppose that could be why the observation has gone non-utilized, in this manner.

- Also, stress-states progressively increase with higher anterior insula dopamine levels over the following type, and stress-states progressively decrease with higher prefrontal-cortex and striatum dopamine levels over anterior insula's. Really just a different framing of the previous example of Psychopathy, but it gives a further straight-forward and clear picture.

- Stress is a dynamic that occurs in cases of mental duress, affecting critical-thinking regions. That characteristic should be similarly identifiable in whatever sums up its cause. The dopamine in the critical-thinking regions is a parallel to it, and this dopamine is uniquely regulated, specifically, I'm personally stating, due to their volume-needs being dependent upon values set within other brain-regions - while other, non-regulated regions simply match dopamine to their internally-available information levels. Both the dopamine and the stress emerge under same circumstances, and their qualities seem presenting of equal prediction of stress tendencies in an individual.

- Unless there exist two separate core stress sources, and personal and academic research don't look like such is alluded to, in my reading, this is it. Resolving and tactfully boosting this one keeps stress from emerging, at all. If there's a second source, it's not showing when this is prevented. Further, there doesn't need to be a second, with this. Everything fits in here.

- My own "untreatable", now treatable ailment (essentially the reason why I'm involved with any of this), is purely stressed-created, and stress-furthered. I can say that high amounts of this dopamine directly and exactly reverse the progressed conditions of the ailment - and from this I held that this dopamine was an anti-stress for a while already. But there are considerations, and treating stress-ailments with dopamine isn't going to work - due to epinephrine, which will antagonize and worsen the stress-conditions while the dopamine could otherwise improve them - though there is way to make things work despite that paradox. If I can dependably treat a worst-case (probably ever) of stress ailment, dependably, then that's significant, and any debate would have to find why the still-dependable results work - and the fact that they work would hold the same significance, regardless.

- More stuff about behavior of stresses, how long they linger and what that would relate to, and other points, should I locate them.

- Just putting this now-thought out here: A stress occupies its thought-pipeline for a lingering, and uncertain duration, and is stressing for the length of that duration. I'm unaware if other brain-regions demonstrably hold onto thought for an indefinite time, or are capable of it, but this would happen in the prefrontal-cortex, where a thought can be mulled over for as long as a person determines. In the case of stress, it's not a personal choice (though, neither is mulling, frequently), and what I'd say would be keeping it there clicks strongly with a previous specific observation I've had regarding brain-processing habit and also incapability - and maybe also the theorized behaviour of stress I've given, presenting it as a damaged molecular compound (btw, I hold no estimated likeliness that that is the actual behaviour, but I'm piecing together observations and knowledge of their effects - and I have more to add to it at a later time).

- Furthering that, addressing stress 


The re-labeling dopamine should be decently agreeable, and I've seen other publication use the 'Reward' status as only so-called. It's not mentioned in that blog posting, but the same non-Rewardness of dopamine action in social affirmation is true of consumer interactions - though the psychology is a bit different.
That re-labeling makes all the difference in the world - or in conclusions, medicine applications, and how and what research is done. It's already been essential.

Stress' identity was instantaneously known after correcting this, which itself was quickly understood to be different than the convention, due to my pre-ailment experience, my extensive painful ailment experiences, and what was learned through far too many years of suffering.

Later, I'll post my different analysis and conclusions of a semi-recent study that was done using the Reward convention, and the conclusions, just by that, are very different, with very different implications, applications and attitudes. The label-corrected version is a lot more sensible, with solid and beneficial applications, while the Reward version seems more anecdotal, with little direct-use, and their 'why's are seemingly ethereal.

Also, some previous studies I've had a retrospective look at make a whole lot more sense after these understandings replace the convention, and those studies' conclusions become automatically very improve-able. I'm sure untold people have been affected by this misnomer, with many deaths being a cause, and multitudes of people not getting the treatment they needed - and more.

Identification, Types, and Theorized-Behaviours for All Mental Stress

The designated subject commences beneath the very-professional wiggly-line.

OK, I promised I would make an addition today to the subject of Dopamine-and-Health, and I'm here delivering in the last hour (precisely last minute now!) of my time-zone. I feel bad thinking that someone might've checked at an earlier hour and been disappointed. My last several hours were used reducing an extreme pain-level of an atypical pain, and my several hours before that were used mostly foolishly telling myself that the pain wasn't worsening.

On the bright-painful side of things, I recognized and conceptualized a new factor/mechanism for that atypical pain, which might be useful for comprehension and treatment-aiding of certain cases that extend beyond just this pain.

Although smuggled in under the wire, I think that the implications and applications of the following Dopamine subject-addition is supreme, and I suppose it might even be the most significant-impacting item ever posted - an analysis of why that could be would form a quality and very subject-valuable future post, hopefully one that I deliver soon.

This wasn't what I'd planned to post tonight. I thought it might be positive to procedurally develop an understanding of related factors first, but I've got to meet my dumb self-imposed promised deadline, and this was the most to-go subject-piece. Due to the ad hoc circumstances, an iterative future-posting of this already seems likely to me.

The contrasting forms are accurate, their provided behaviours are theory, while the overall conclusion seems to be somewhat deadlocked by a list of extraneous considerations.

The Identity and Behaviour of Mental Stress:

Dopamine accommodates, and enables the formation of processes such as thoughts, interpretation of incoming data, and cellular-instruction, I'm theorizing, by bonding to a compound which provides core-data and is further assembled as a mental process.
If there is certain brain-region shortage of dopamine, there will be fewer dopamine molecules bonding to process compounds, and thought will be slower and not experience as much development (experiencing as less details included in a person's statements, or difficulty presenting a thought, and much more) Also, fewer processes will be engaged at any time, and those processes will have vulnerable and weakened constitutions. There can also be a backlog of processes when there is insufficient dopamine availability to commence their development and expansion, making responses delayed and staggered.
When there is an extreme shortage of prefrontal cortex and striatum dopamine, in addition to the aforementioned, the processing of senses is impaired and limited - Examples:

i) Five concurrent sounds might process as only one, making them lose their contexts, and their homogenized- unification lacking an identifiable meaning
ii)A body of text might be non-decipherable, appearing as just one item, and that item confusing and painful to look at; Other examples.
For here and now, I'm labeling these stress-experiences as imposing or encumbering stresses, to denote that they are of a very different nature to the next.

When no dopamine reserves are present in these same regions, mental processes will normally not commence until there is a minimum necessary amount of dopamine to bond to any of them.
However, in the event that there is no available specific-region dopamine for additional processes to be commenced and if a process is forcefully thrust into being processed ***, dopamine from already in-development processes will tear from its current compound to bond to the force-demanded process.
The compound from which the dopamine tore will be damaged, and constitute a more serious stress, and perhaps the typical conception. For here-now purpose, I'm labeling this type as Active Stress.

*** Likely causations include being startled / alarmed, aggressive arguments, if unexpectedly accused or confronted, when time-constricted with tasks, abuse, and many others.

Both these stress-types are likely to affect those of frequent anterior insula dopamine-dominance, but not those typically identifying as always or mostly prefrontal-etc dominant.

In a future post, I'll expound on why I suspect that mental Stress is 1:1 certain brain-region dopamine deficiency - making much mental ailment, including those age-related, likely to be the consequence of very long-term habitual deficiency, even if only a mild one.
When I expound on that conclusion, I'll provide a slew of reasons why this could be the singular-possible identity of virtually-all / maybe-all mental stress - having in-mind one possible similar-alternate instance that I've yet to spend time considering.

[  This doesn't cover preemption, or treatment considerations where a deficiency and mental stress is already existing  - treatment is vitally not simply supplementing a deficiency]

Reward or God-molecule?: Dopamine's Role-Reversing Correction

P.* - Just so you know...
P.1 - Conclusive rationalization that the ball was never even first picked up so that I could now say it's been dropped
P.2 - Correcting a label that has been deceitful and lethally damaging
P.3 - Gratuitous testing
P.4 - Conclusion



This is an overview, and there's much supplementary consideration to follow - a person's hypothetical action based on just this information would be pretty gambling


In a case of Truth being in direct-contradiction of conventional assumption:

Rather than exhibiting as a process' tail-end Reward, dopamine is outset-required in order for thoughts to be produced, that they might be employable as actions -  those actions being necessary for there to potentially be experienced a consequential reward. Simultaneously, personal-efforts and works that go unappreciated or under-appreciated don't simply just fail to provide any reward, but that un-rewarded effort even deflates the person's inner-constitution, despite the fact that the tasks were completed all the same, even to quality-level. So where, then, is the reward for those things that were definitively-done, using genuine effort?

Regarding Affirmation: Emotions of shared-connection are not rewards, they're encouragements and excitements - both of those things being premier, while Reward is exclusively caboose. Affirmation is not, has never been, and will never be Reward. Affirmation is truthful recognition of what already is, not some dumb consumable.

Also, how is something that downgrades the pace/volume/breadth/quality/control of mental-processes when it's reduced possibly a reward for those things? If it doesn't react to the thought-environment, but rather, the thought-environment reacts to it, then it clearly the governing force that's master and in control, and not a gimmicky after-effect. Physics, anyone? This math looks very wrong to me: dope + thought = caboose¿

Still further, dopamine is required-for and influencing-of all mental processes, including cellular-instruction, which then means that dopamine isn't particular to a process-type, such as reward-capable thought-items. How, then, could dopamine's equal-opportunity presence for all process-development possibly be any less than completely-shunning of the Reward label? Its behaviour is all-process-targeting, and ignoring of hypothetical outcomes. It also isn't accomplishment-treat, it's capability-determining. If you want to accomplish something, you're going to have to have enough dopamine in the right places to do so - and that want, itself, is being created and produced courtesy of dopamine.


When something has been labeled after an incorrect placement in its process, affecting all research and understanding (in this case beyond imaginable, to the negative), any designation that moves closer to the reality is better. But in this case we'll skip a formal gradual-progression and just snap right to the correct placement.

In private works, I've often used a larger term, 'thought-processing-fuel', to characterize dopamine. But, as dopamine processes all things, not simply thought, this term is pretty inaccurate and could blind understanding and discovery, just as Reward comprehensive has.

Physio-fuel, physio-energy, are convenient-sized and proficient in meaning, though, to me, lack sense of process-development. Process(ing)-fuel? Eh, dopamine does quite a lot to be well-characterized in 2-syllables. Let's try 1-syllable: God-molecule. Works, makes sense: confidence, energy, drive, passion, honesty, integrity, choice, equality, justice, reason, conviction, morality, righteousness, indignation, peace, physical health... their physiological existence is dopamine enabled, developed, made-enactionable, and also bear measurement by various-region dopamine levels in a person. Consensus will lock-in on some term, but it has to change.


Testing: Dopamine as possibly Reward

- When prefrontal-etc dopamine reduces, mental-processes reduce in quantity, speed, detail, constitution, clarity, precision, control, presence. When dopamine is increased, the likewise of all those things follows.
- Whenever thought, just one type of mental-process, is very laboured, and painful mind-conditions emerge, dopamine does not reactively rise to accommodate the strained-environment.
- If dopamine is artificially supplemented in the presence of those same conditions, the laboured and painful conditions disappear, in response.

Therefore, thought perfectly follows dopamine, being complete slave to it: a pied-piper effect. However, dopamine does not follow thought. Therefore, Ergo, dopamine is not a consequence and privilege/gift/bonus... it is generating/compelling/instigatory and fully-essential.

Dopamine in-region availability is outset-necessary for that brain-region to be capable of doing any work, and its dopamine availability will straight-forwardly dictate how much and how well it does what it does.

Lifting use from the same demonstration of their relational physics, dopamine is brain-task producing-and-processing fuel. That causes a lot of conventional sentiments towards dopaminergics to experience a significant reduction in validity.


Thought is dopamine's Reward.

Better regulate that shit.

Gaming Thought, for " : Game Secrets Shouldn't Make Things Easier

Opinion, reflecting, on personal experience, after reading this review of Shadow Warrior's remake : RockPaperShotgun's Wot-I-Think: Shadow Warrior

Large game secrets should provide added challenges, not make going forward easier. Otherwise, how can someone access them without deflating the game experience for them? It means that people taking the game's fight head-on have to avoid them in order to keep the their chosen level of difficulty/challenge up - which is contrary to their drive to dominate everything within the game.

Secrets are wanted to be found and exploited, because that's a success of discovery skill, but that success isn't wanted to diminish the rest of the game by giving that player an unfair advantage, which is what powerful bonuses do.

Thought on Gov't Authorities and their Legitimacies

I've cropped the first paragraph below from an email meant for some gov't persons, where it probably won't get included.

Apart from already-having the knowledge and understanding from the outset of one's earthly-existence, nobody within government can work within their most proficient, valuable, and accomplishing range of capability prior to knowing the shock of understanding that all licensed, claimed and enforced judgment effectively consists of ignorable, unqualified, illegal, and infringing idiots (meant as casual endearment form of 'idiots', though a couple of days later that didn't seem likely to be a reader's first-inclination). Prior to this knowledge, efforts will only ever, at best, be shoddy and flawed - as reception of this knowledge is the inadvertent, un-manipulable, and non-willed by-product of seeing and understanding the very disconnects between legal mechanisms that make them invalid - by their own rules, and probably unbeknownst to most of those issuing them.

Each piece of democratic gov't can be publicly explained why it doesn't exists and cannot exert whatever it threatens to exert, and if it did it would be prosecutably illegal. Dictatorships have figured out how to side-step this issue, but otherwise, thus is the nature of pretend-authority between pretend-equals, even when it's done with goodwill, communal organization, and various supports. In the end, it's always only-ever created its own need for itself, and been furthered by those who come into it while just assuming that it's the natural way. Conditioning received from the pre-existence of these environs preempts persons from ever actually discovering natural sensibility.

When a person's will isn't to abuse something, then laws which aim to prevent it's possible abuse end up as abuses of that person and their will, and also as damaging losses to those who could've or would have received benefit from that person's ambition.

Also, when you take responsibility away from somebody... you take responsibility away from them. I suppose the downward-spiral-effect from progressive layers of legislation can be called Chasing the Dragon.

The good politicians are the ones slowly working towards winding the charade down and loosening grips. There are plenty of profiteers and Arrogant-Demon overlord-wanabees, though.

In closing, I think the notion 'Arrogant-Demon' is hilarious, and I hope there will be chance to use the term in the future. Fin.
