By Ken on October 18, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a book that has made it very clear to me the true nature of those intra-species predators that now quite literally run the world using Nash's Game Theory as a model for human behavior. Game Theory which has the concept of 'stable equilibrium' which, as I understand it, involves each player eventually adopting a certain strategy in a game that has basic rules, communications and cooperative agreements agreed on by the players to minimize conflicts that could arise from the competing interests of the players within the game. Any player's best moves and strategies are based on what he perceives to be the best moves and strategies made by the other players within the framework set forth by those agreements and conditions.

But Nash took this idea of equilibrium into the realm of paranoia where he immediately assumed that each player is only out for himself and is out only to screw over the other players and so, based on this warped assumption, he developed a strategy of giving the other players the illusion of mutual cooperation but then double crossing and betraying the players at the end so that the doublecrosser is the one who is always on top and always in the controlling position. In short, Nash is saying "get the other guy first no matter what it takes since the other guy is gonna get you first no matter what it takes. Every man for himself and better it happen to the other guy then you."

It's a projected paranoia with a slum mentality all coming from a so called "beautiful mind." Yeah, beautiful for a psychopath that is.

I'd have to say, after reading all the previous Wave Books, the latest volume "Almost Human' is quite the eye opener. The general public has no idea what we are in for and the fact that such a small percentage of people controls the majority of people. "Almost Human" exposes the methods they use - the method of the psychopaths. Laura Knight Jadcyzk uses John Nash (Game Theory) and Ira Einhorn as case studies and reveals the ultimate aim of the psychopath.

Combine that with the facts presented about the cyclical nature of what may be heading our way from "out there" and you get the picture that humanity is in for a very interesting ride. Educate yourself; make a difference, read "Almost Human"!

This book goes deep into the field of psychology and how it can help us see the troublemakers in our midst. I especially enjoyed reading about game theory.

The book compliments the BBC documentary I've seen, The Century of the Self by Adam Curtis. Game theory was thought to apply to everyone, where their actions can be predicted by mathematics. The main goal was gains for the self, which turned out to be false.
In reality they found that two main groups fit it: psychopaths and economists!

This book goes deeper into the connection between these types of people and how they are not just mass murderers, but also our political and economic leaders!

A must read for those that want to find out why the world is the way it is in these crazy times. It is also useful along with the Ponerology book to be able to spot this kind of behavior and avoid being hoodwinked by certain individuals.

Free will is an important concept and hard to digest. A creative force can help you only if you're able to help yourself because in a free will Universe free will cannot be violated. Pursuing that means to gain objectivity and see reality as it is. Besides, the opposing forces of subjectivity are not limited in their choice of means, and here's where humanity hits the wall, for millennia.

Studying case point such as John Nash and Ira Einhorn is important to unveil where our slavery begins and where it should end, as in the words of Ouspensky paraphrasing Gurdjieff 'in the actual situation of humanity there is nothing that points to evolution proceeding .. man is becoming a willing slave .. begins to grow fond of his slavery, to be proud of it. And this is the most terrible thing that can happen to a man.'

The whole affair has reflection 'as above so below,' that this book explains in full details. Science and so called mysticism are really two sides of the same coin.

Once again Laura Knight-Jadczyk has written a great book. Working through the complicated and dangerous world of the Psychopath and how they
so easily effect havoc in our lives. Using two examples, she breaks things down so that we can clearly see what is so important to learn and
know. A must read for anyone trying to understand why so many people get hurt and how we can protect ourselves.
