Denial and Delusion – Constant Companions of the High Level Narcissist

Denial is a powerful defense mechanism that the high level narcissist uses to create his/her reality. Cruel, cunning, plotting, scheming, the high level believes that he is a person of fine character. 

The high level narcissist denies the truth about his/her true nature. When the narcissist falters in his personal and professional obligations, he adroitly blames others, especially those close to him for negative outcomes. 

The high level is never wrong. His false self is giddy, riding on the irrational waves of denial.

The high level narcissist’s delusional sense of self is created out of an over the top inflated ego. 

Obsessed with creating and maintaining a perfect image, the high level narcissist pursues the perfection of the external self: personal appearance, extravagant lifestyles, luxurious homes. 

Pompous, grandiose, the high level narcissist is convinced that he is intrinsically superior to others and therefore entitled to control them. Those who don’t meet his outrageous demands and standards of value are treated with scorn and disdain. 

You are the opposite of the high level narcissist. You seek the evolution of the original self with indispensable qualities:

independence of thinking, taking initiative, recognizing one’s mistakes, learning the lessons and moving forward along your own pathways of evolution, exploration and enjoyment of your unique creative gifts, intuitive insights, wisdom of the body/mind, development of the spiritual self as you define this.

Professor Olle Johansson: The OG EMF Researcher Is Worried About The Future

A quadrillion is 1, followed by 15 zeroes. 1,000,000,000,000,000. Today’s guest says that is how much more EMF radiation we are exposed to today than we were a generation ago. 

August talks to Swedish professor Olle Johansson who is a pioneer in the study of the effects of EMFs–which come from all of our digital devices. Beginning in the 1970’s, he has published over 600 papers in this field. There are few people who know about this subject–and there’s probably no one who makes it more interesting and entertaining. Olle tells us what keeps him up at night these days. Is it 5g? No it’s the effect of EMF radiation on all the bacteria around us. Join us for a very interesting episode.

REPLAY: Daniel Z. Lieberman, M.D: Dopamine Is About So Much More Than Pleasure

Daniel Z. Lieberman is the author of The Molecule of More: How a Single Chemical in Your Brain Drives Love, Sex, and Creativity?and Will Determine the Fate of the Human Race. He is a professor and vice chair for clinical affairs in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University,  a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, and a recipient of the Caron Foundation Research Award. In addition to writing science books, he works with patients, teaches medical students, and does behavioral research.


All of our wealth comes from new ideas, so it helps to understand how the brain works.
Lieberman talks about the basics of why dopamine is so important.
Dopamine is so much more than just the pleasure molecule.
Dopamine is not about contentment or satisfaction because those emotions don’t stimulate us to seek more. Dopamine is the transmitter of anticipation.
People who have highly active dopamine systems are more likely to be entrepreneurs, artists, and to suffer from mental illness.
Dopamine leads to pleasure, but not happiness or satisfaction. That comes from other brain chemicals.
We talk about the reward prediction error and how it can lead to disappointment.
Some people go into things with low expectations. With low expectations, you are apt to get more positive feelings when things work out well.
If you always expect the best, you are bound to be disappointed.
Dopamine always pushes towards more.
People have to decide what they want out of life.
People who are highly dopaminergic aren’t happy or satisfied, but the rest of us profit from their dissatisfaction.
Artists are driven more by meaning than happiness.
We talk about entrepreneurs and their constant desire for more.
It’s not true that you can have it all. You have to make choices.
Once we understand how our brains work, we can make better choices.
We talk about addiction, the power of cravings, and how to overcome cravings.
Understanding how brains work helps you understand and tolerate others.
