The Norway Massacre - A Search For Logic Within An Illogical Event

This good vs. evil response never sat right with me. It simply is too easy. These sad events perpetrated by human minds are very complex because 'THE WHY' may exist within the cells of the brain. Human brains are so complicated I am not sure if we will ever fully understand the complete workings of it.



I'm glad David Eagleman doesn't feel that way, he just had his book published called: 'Incognito' (click to listen to interview on NPR): What's Hiding In The Unconscious Mind. He tries to explain (objectively) how the brain operates. It’s an interesting read that perhaps will help shed some light on 'THE WHY' of the Norway massacre.



The brain of a psychopath is without a doubt, damaged; it may be because of an injury or it may be caused by heredity. If it’s caused by heredity we need to take a whole different look at the physiological mechanisms of the conscience.



To think of the conscience as physical could be quite frightening because it could tell us that people like a 'HITLER' are born with psychopathic tendencies innate within their brain and it will be just a matter of time and circumstance when these hereditary impairments will one day play out in a negative manner. But like religious explanation that try to explain such horrific tragedies, the physical conscience malfunction reasoning is also inadequate, to date. Thus, reading such sadness caused by one of our own species, gives you an overwhelming feeling of helplessness knowing that we mortal human beings will not be able to prevent an occurrence like this from happening again. Not at least, until we can learn how to identify brain malfunctions that hide within perfectly normal looking brain cells.



Such a sad but also detestable human condition we will have to live with for the time being. thinkingblue



PS: Trying to make sense out of an extremely senseless act is impossible but it does help a little to try and analyze it. Now, if we could only stop the tears. Please read the articles below for some insite:

The Face Of A Psychopath

The
face of a psychopath looks benign but beyond the forehead lurks a
predatory fiend that may attack, causing unthinkable sadness and
mayhem.

Many
times we are confronted with the fact that there are people who
live amongst us who are wired differently than ourselves. This
realization happens whenever we hear news of a catastrophic
occurrence in which many people (who were at the right place at
the wrong time) lose their lives, causing our seemingly sane
minds to go haywire. HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN? WHAT POSSESSED THAT
PERSON TO DO SUCH A HORRIBLE THING?

There
are those who will look to their religion for answers... It was
the Devil who did it. Lucifer road roughshod over victims on that
day.
