I feel like I can now write on a more regular basis, like I once did. A break for most of the past two years was definitely in order, as I had burned myself out and tried some other life experiments to try and find some footing, but now it is time to focus on the one thing that goes beyond me – my writing. Do not misunderstand, I am still the same egocentric individual that I always have been, but there is a symbiotic relationship between my boredom and my ability to communicate with others. If you are new to this blog, welcome, and if you are a veteran of my writings, thank you. It feels good to be back.
I have always been shadow, as have you. I simply rejoice in my place in the lands between light and dark, whereas you pretend that all is bright and pure.
If I had to pick the common denominator in all of the failed interpersonal relationships – friends, romantic partners, family, etc. – throughout my life, it is me. Some may have left because I was too emotionally absent, while others may have left when I was overtly callous toward them, but it doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, it was my actions or inactions that caused nearly every interpersonal relationship that has come my way to collapse. My wiring will never change, even as I mellow and embrace relative responsibility, so rather than run from those bridges I burn, I must turn to their light to better understand my own place on this earth.
We live in a world of implicit censorship. Wrongthink is ridiculed at best and persecuted at worst. Movements like #MeToo seek to criminalize and ostracize many, when in some cases, no wrong has been done. Demographics are silenced because they are not in the in-groups of the power-elite. Nowhere is this more evident than with matters of psychology. Neurotypicals (both in the “non-antisocial” and “normal” sense) are afraid of the neurodivergent, and thus seek to silence what they fear, so that the horrors they face become without voice. By removing the fangs of the perceived enemy, there is nothing left but the will of those in power. This should be considered unacceptable, but often it is only the marginalized that truly understand the power play involved.
I’m not going to go into a huge recount of the newest forums endeavor, but I encourage everyone to check out the reboot of Psychopath Tree. The technology stack for this go-around is more modern and should make for a more enjoyable experience for any antisocial/psychopathic types that want to join us over there for discussion and chat.
As with all of my endeavors, I will not seek to monetize this. This is a gift from me to you, in part to help alleviate my boredom – and the assumed boredom of others.
More details may be found on Twitter, @Psychopath_Tree, and at the site itself.
I hope to see all of you there!
