Health ~ Brains ~ The pain
of sensitive intelligent introverts
are different, with different specialties, because it's more useful to have
specialties and help each other than be a little good at everything... even
if it means that we lack the opposite skill.
Everything comes with an upside and downside, and the bigger the upside,
the bigger the downside as well.
Extraordinary geniuses are no exceptions.
It's like a role playing game, we all have the same amount of points
that we can give to different stats and skills. We can choose to be balanced
and average, but if we put everything we have in one skill, the other stats
will suffer. The overall stats are equal yet the different possibilities
The difference between introverts and extroverts is the nervous system.
We're all made of the same things, even male and females, but not in the
Some people have naturally strong muscles, probably thanks to producing
more testosterone. Others have a more sensitive nervous system.
It's common knowledge that someone training to build muscles and therefore
using them more should eat more protein to have materials for growth and
The same is true with people with a hyperactive nervous system. They
might not seem to be moving, but it takes a huge amount of energy internally.
The nerves must be build, wear down and need to be renewed. Nerves are made
of the B complex and need vitamin C too.
But when a hypersensitive person runs out, instead to be told to eat
more materials for maintenance and repairs because they have a higher use
and therefore a higher need for it than average... They are seen as weak
minded, even defective. They're told by "professionals" to take
drugs to "correct" them, making them continue to ignore their
needs, not encouraging them to figure them out, even invalidating their
rational ability to do so. That's criminal.
Emotions are the result of nerves impulses being stimulated. Someone
with a very sensitive nervous system will therefore be more emotional...
but more intelligent too! Because the brain is a ball of nerves and thoughts
are nerve impulses. So someone able to take in more information faster will
be able to analyze information better, therefore having a more powerful
intellect. But the rest of the body struggles to keep up with the demands
for energy production and nutrients for repairs. A passionate person can
achieve something great and quickly, but will burn out faster and will need
more rest, which can be frustrating. But without it distress, diseases and
even death will follow.
That's why introverts need time alone to "digest", analyze
and understand all the information they get... and recharge.
Receiving too much stimulation too fast means having more to cope with...
and needing more support. Unfortunately, those people are seen as a weak
minded and ill willed burden and shunned... receiving less support than
average while needing more. Being perceived as weak and isolated means looking
like a weak prey and attracting the worst... increasing the distress in
a vicious cycle... as people think that we must do something to deserve
it and shun us even more, seeing us as part of the problem and wanting to
avoid trouble... worsening the problem... Introverts need to learn to handle
themselves on their own whether they want to or not. They can be wonderful
when they give a lot, but the water in their well isn't endless, they're
even thirstier than most people even if they will be less inclined to express
or even acknowledge their needs.
Extroverts don't have a hypersensitive nervous system, so their brains
can crave stimulation. They like loud places with lots of people, so they
always have someone available to avoid being alone. They like big flashy
explosions in movies. It takes a lot for them to be excited, and they're
more easily bored than over stimulated. But that hyper stimulation can be
sheer agony for the hyper sensitive nerves of introverts, so they prefer
to invest deeper emotions with a few friends, and don't feel lonely in quiet
places like nature.
People who have naturally strong muscles probably have a protective shield
that numb their nerves, enabling them to have a high pain tolerance as they
build things and enjoy sports. But some people are mostly nerves.
"Myelin is a fatty white substance that surrounds the axon of some
nerve cells, forming an electrically insulating layer. It is essential for
the proper functioning of the nervous system."
Nerves have a sort of skin that makes them less sensitive and protect
them... but without eating enough nutrients such as B vitamins... it breaks...
Imagine scraping the skin of your finger and touching salt. It burns
as hell. Now imagine if you were slowly skinned, all your protective layer
slowly eroded and cut off, then thrown in salt. Some people go through that
on a nervous system level...
That's why very intelligent people tend to go insane.
It takes so much energy just to think, and big thinkers tend to have
big exhausting projects... mixed with having lots of emotions to cope with...
mixed with needing more support but having less and more abuse... mixed
with having higher needs for nutrients while society doesn't fulfill the
basics as it is... it's no wonder that many people are depressed.
The adrenal glands are responsible for handling stress and energy production.
They need the B complex, lots of C and minerals to do that, and orchestrate
the functions of other vital organs... Sugar alone isn't enough because
we're one of the rare animals that can't convert it to vitamin C, but we
still crave it when we need more vitamin C, because what is naturally sweet
is usually full of it... But processed food such as grains and candy tricks
the brain into thinking that it has the best vitamin C, but it's been refined
out to concentrate the taste... so we waste away unable to burn energy...
Storing the sugar as fat is saving our lives, because it's so high that
it becomes toxic, but that's not the only problem.
The B complex and vitamin C are necessary to burn energy and keep the
blood sugar stable. Lack of vitamin B and hypoglycemia make people crave
alcohol, because it's very high in sugar. Van Gogh had emotional distress
and often drank alcohol to excess. He hallucinated, cut off his ear, passed
out and couldn't remember doing it.
Lack of B3 is called pellagra and causes the 4 Ds: diarrhea, dermatitis,
dementia, and death.
Lack of vitamin C is called scurvy, the acute version is quickly falling
apart, rotting and dying. But it can happen slowly, giving an intense physical
and mental distress and suffering.
So to keep our needs in balance, we can provide more nutrients, or avoid
wasting energy. When crossing our limits for too long, we need to catch
up to the damage by consuming much more nutrients while avoiding spending
energy. It's not being lazy, or antisocial, it's self care and necessary
Someone who does more will also need more. Life stays balance whether you
want it or not. So make sure that your needs and limits are balanced...
if you want to stay alive.

When you have a very sensitive nervous system, you can pick up slighter
stimuli, and more subtle energies. So people can notice micro facial expressions,
behavior, or even feel a difference in the bio electrical energy of another
Some people can feel other people's emotions as their own. It can be
overwhelming to feel everybody's pains and not be able to see the difference
with our own. Empaths tend to take the world's well being on their shoulders
because they feel as one with it. They can't make others suffer because
they would indirectly make themselves suffer. But when someone takes advantage
of that and are willing to abuse you until you break... it will be less
painful and more educative to stop that bad behavior instead to enable it.
Animals are drawn to empaths because they don't need words to communicate
either, so they listen to animals and take their feelings into considerations.
Anyone would prefer and appreciate that.
Their only shield is often solitude; witch can be a vital breath of fresh
air in an ocean of negativity and conflicts.
Let others handle their own responsibilities and needs.
Thoughts are emotions translated into words by our conscious mind. If empaths
can feel other emotions, then it's a form of telepathy even if they interpret
it differently, or translate it into a different language.

Supernatural psychic powers
This article was inspired by the anime " The Disastrous Life of Saiki
K - Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan TV". It's an extremely powerful psychic
trying to look average to avoid disaster and have a powerful life. It's
interesting to see him handle the suffering brought by his powers and how
greater power can have disadvantages and cause limitations. He seems antisocial,
but when you can hear the thoughts of thousands of people constantly, you
crave some peace and quiet.
Superpowers in the media are shows as its extreme form, so it seems like
science fiction. But I had some experiences before that couldn't be dismissed
as a coincidence, and proved to me that it is possible. The mind might seem
less powerful than muscles, but muscles would be useless without the mind.
My experiences with telepathy:
My best childhood friend was over, and we were both distracted in deep
thoughts. I started signing a Christmas song, which was unusual because
we were in summer, and especially against my nature because they annoy me.
My friend immediately speaks out with surprise: "wow, the song is stuck
in your mind too!?" I guess our mind became in sync for a moment, and
I ended up picking up the emotionally nagging repetition.
Years later, I was working in customer service, it was at a McDonald's,
requiring to act faster than I could think, and I was in the right mood
for it. I heard a woman say "A blueberry muffin." So I repeat
the order while typing it. She comes closer slowly, completely astonished,
and says in the same voice that I heard: "Wow... I didn't say anything...
but I was thinking it!"
My experience with premonitory dreams:
The first was a strong feeling of déjà vu. I am positive that
I dreamt of it before. I was at a big store and walked down the stairs to
the other area. Then I saw a child sitting in a shopping cart, alone, with
no one else anywhere to be seen, not even his parents. It was very eerie
and I had a strong emotion when I saw it.
The one that I am absolutely sure of is waking up from a very weird dream
in high school. I was going to my physical education class and walked near
the stairs. Two girls walked quickly, one with a red shirt and green shorts,
the other with a green shirt and red shorts. As if they switched half of
their uniforms. Red and green are opposite colors so it had a strong visual
impact. They also walked exactly the same way. It was so weird that I thought
about it constantly instead to forget my dream after a few minutes. Then
later that day I went to PE... and I saw them in the exact same way!
I think that extremely strong emotions do an echo in time. But not just
in the future... but in the past too! Everyone had a bad feeling about something,
their intuition warning them. I don't think that it's only the rational
brain running a simulation and warning that the probability of harm is higher
than success. You can read your own mind, so you could receive telepathic
messages from yourself... through time.
There was a scientific test that stimulated the brain directly, it should
have reacted faster than poking a far away toe or something, since it takes
time for electrical energy to travel nerve impulses... but instead the reaction
was slower... as if the brain reacted constantly to perceptions from the
future to be able to have a better reaction time and survive. We take away
our hand from a burning iron faster than we can think... but we might actually
do it faster than we can feel it.
We should listen to our intuition... because it might be a warning from
a future possibility of us that actually lived it and have regrets. We can
change the future.

The rules of quantum physics change when there's an observer. Without one,
if we fire electrons at a surface, we get all the possible results happening
all at once. But if we observe what is happening, then only one possibility
Electrons are made of endless possibilities... are you are made of them.
There were tests where the will of the mind influenced random results...
but they were recorded, so they also influenced it through time into the
In the movie the secret, it shows how powerful the law of attraction
is. You can attract the fate that you want by having the right will, attitude
and open mind. You'll find a way if you search for it, and you'll notice
opportunities if you look for them... but the universe will also align the
way towards you, matching your energy.
The purpose of life is to live. And the simple fact of being sentient
and aware shapes the very universe.
