The "reptilian brain" is your first and oldest brain - very animalistic and primitive in its nature. It closely resembles the brain of reptiles such as lizards. It drives fundamental needs such as survival, mating, feeding and self-sustenance. Its primary role is to make sure that you stay alive and ensure survival of the species by mating with others. The reptilian brain is all about survival.
In addition to this, the reptilian brain also took on the responsibility of controlling autonomic bodily functions, such as the beating of the heart, the breathing of the lungs and the regulation of body temperature. From this can be deduced that the reptilian mind is on autopilot, all behaviour and responses are automated, under subconscious control, to the exclusion of all rationality or reasoning of any kind. - Beating the Reptilian Brain http://bit.ly/xVSJY6
The reptilian Mind is the savage mind, the old mind. Like snakes and lizards it does not think, it behaves and responds. The reptilian mind controls: "Self Preservation, Hunger, Sex, and Sleep. This is the mind that makes you grab food, without abiding by any social etiquette or formality, without asking permission. It circumvents the 'higher mind' or Human Mind and usually gets that person into some trouble by breaking a societal rule of some sort. They get hungry they grab, they get horny they rape." The Fight or Flight response is also associated to this mind.
"When one studies the Reptilian Mind, horrors such as Occultic Rituals involving human sacrifice and the horrendous and systematic sexual exploitation of women and children becomes understandable." - http://bit.ly/Lfe79O
Parenting: Mammals tend to raise their young. Reptilians just lay eggs and as such they have no such thing as "family." No parents, no children, no close sibling relationships. They would kill their own for the sake of survival / self-preservation.
Lack of curiosity and imagination. A difference between mammals and reptiles is that mammals are playful and curious. Dogs dream and they actually bark, cry, twitch and twirl in their sleep, living their dreams. When a reptilian is sitting with his back against a tree his head is empty, the lights are on, but nobody is home. "The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and re-learn." - Alvin Toffler. The reptilian mind is incapable of performing any of those.
The reptilian mind lives in the here and the now only, for the moment, tomorrow does not exist. They consume what is available today, without considering tomorrow. They are opportunistic in their behaviour and swept into trance by the least ritualistic, rhythmic dancing and singing. Bottom-end of the scale in as far as human development is concerned. Emotionally they are like children between the ages of 8 and 12 and equally hypnotisable. Emotionally they never develop beyond the age of 12. They are like the spoilt brat, who throws a tantrum when not getting what he wants. They are immature and as such never take responsibility for anything, always finding something or someone else to blame for their mistakes and shortcomings. They procrastinate easily, because they do not have the intellectual capacity, the knowledge or experience to do the job, but because of their rock-bottom lowest of the low self-esteem they refuse to ask for assistance, they'll rather find some excuse for not having done the work.
They are naturally absent-minded with a short memory span, not able to think laterally. You give them a task today, show them how to do it and they'll be able to do the job today, but comes tomorrow morning you'll have to show it to them all-over again. What they learned and did yesterday, remained behind when the sun set.
Like reptiles they lack imagination and any measure of foresight. In groups they function like flocks of birds, in unison, all behaving as one. In groups they are highly hypnotisable and stirred up into riot-mode with the least dancing, singing or emotional provocation. One of them start dancing or singing and all fall in, this gets their emotions going and running out of control within minutes. Once they are in this mode they easily turn violent and destructive. They would start running, throwing stones, burning tyres and attacking people not part of their group. Like African Wild Dogs, they would kill, without fighting among each other.
Sex is an uncontrollable necessity, an animalistic need of the highest order. They reproduce by instinct and spread their seed as much, as far and wide as possible. It is not uncommon for one man to have as many as twenty children with many different women / wives.
Rituals, superstition and dancing must be among the lowest-down-the-scale of all human behaviour. To the reptilian mind sex is often part of ritual and superstition: "They tell us that the high incidence of rape in South Africa is a macho thing. Rubbish! It is deliberate, it is planned, and most of the woman that is raped in South Africa is raped for black magical purposes." - Credo Mutwa
As ritualistic and superstitious as can be imagined. They have, what we would consider, strange beliefs. The bigger the man the stronger he must be, the one with the biggest car drives off first at the four-way crossing.
They are controlled by their animal instincts. If they develop a need to urinate, they do it right there, in public, they cannot control it.
They are completely, totally and utterly lost to peer pressure, they cannot say no, they are compelled and driven to go along. Their fight or flight instincts are of the highest order. If they should land in a vehicle accident, they instinctively get out and run away. This is not criminal behaviour, this is pure animalistic instinct over which they have no control whatsoever. When they get angry they would kill without any hint of self-control, their survival instinct takes over and controls their actions, without any conscious interference. They show no remorse afterwards, because in survival mode they do what is necessary, exercising the maximum force possible.
"What some people cannot understand they destroy - Whether their behaviour is defined by culture or intelligence is of little import as the end-product remains the same: Destroy western culture. The constant purging of emotional discontent and frustration through violence is indicative of a culture that refuses to examine its own internal flaws - This disconnect is symptomatic of ritualistic thinking that creates demons and evil spirits and all sorts of 'mysterious' external forces that have absolute control over how the individual behaves and what he feels - The 'white devil' is just another demon in a long list of demons these cultures blame for their difficulties. To them, for them, the thought of looking into themselves, of self examination coupled with personal accountability, is inconceivable" - Robert Stilson
They are incapable of self-analysis or introspection, because it requires both intellect and rational thought, both of which they do not posses.
First and foremost among the traits generated through the reptilian brain is the drive to establish and defend territory. This is fuelled by an extremely potent "will-to-power", exemplified among lizards by the ritual behaviour of two rainbow lizards competing for dominance. These animals have beautiful colours and like many lizards, use head-bobbing and push-ups in assertive, aggressive, courtship and greeting displays.
In a contest, once the gauntlet is thrown down, the aggressive displays give way to violent combat, and the struggle is unrelenting. In victory, they are tyrannical dictators in the extreme. In defeat, they lose their majestic colours, lapse into a kind of depression, and die two weeks later.
This is classic behaviour. Fighting each other and humanity to the death to impose their will and dominance. Winner takes it all.
At least five human behaviours originate in the reptilian brain.
Without defining them, I shall simply say that in human activities they find expression in:
- obsessive-compulsive behaviour
- personal day-to-day rituals and superstitious acts
- slavish conformance to old ways of doing things
- ceremonial re-enactments
- obeisance to precedent, as in legal, religious, cultural, and other matters responding to partial representations (colouration, "strangeness," etc.), whether alive or inanimate and all manner of deception
The above was taken from http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sumer_anunnaki/reptiles/reptiles14.htm
A neurotic is someone who knows he has some psychological aberration and is able to do something about it, like consulting a psychologist or taking some medicine or appropriate supplement. A psychotic is someone with a psychological aberration, but doesn't realise it. The psychotic thinks he is normal and everyone around him is mad. The psychotic thinks he is a genius and everyone around him are morons. The reptilian mind is similar, they think they can do anything anyone else can do. They do not realise they are intellectually underdeveloped and inferior, in fact they think they are superior.
When the reptilian mind gets angry they lose it completely. He would grab a shovel and cut your head in two, because he is angry. In a fight one should never fall, because he would grab a brick and smash your head to a pulp, because he is angry. If the train is late, they would throw it with stones and put it alight, because they are angry. They view anger as an excuse for their uncontrolled destructive, murderous animalistic behaviour. To their minds anger warrants absolute uncontrolled destructive and murderous behaviour, because they cannot control themselves. Their anger causes a state of temporary insanity and their actions under such conditions should be excused and forgiven simply on the basis of having been angry at the time, because according to them, anger warrants destructive, murderous, ruthless, vicious behaviour.
When your life is threatened you either fight or you run away, because the reptilian brain takes over (unless your rational mind remains in control). Yet some people function at this level all the time, they are always under the control of their subconscious mind, their reptilian mind.
The subconscious mind does not reason, it is one-track-minded, focussed on one thing only, your survival.
Let me tell you a story:
The frog is sitting on the riverbank basking in the sun. The scorpion comes up to him and asks if he would be so kind as to give him a lift on his back to the other side of the river.
The frog asks the scorpion; "What guarantee do I have that would not stab in the back me half-way across the river?"
The scorpion says; "But that would be stupid, because if I should do that both of us would drown, which means I would also be killed as a result."
The frog thinks about it and says to the scorpion it makes logical sense. So the frog lets the scorpion climb unto his back and jumps into the river. All went well, but as they reached the middle of the river the stupid scorpion turns and stabs the frog in the back.
The frog says to him, "Now what have you done? This is exactly what I was concerned about and you assured me, yet you did it anyway and now both of us will die."
The scorpion looks at him and says, "Sorry my friend I could not help myself, it is in my nature."
Such is the behaviour of the reptilian mind, it is in their nature and they cannot help themselves.
The reptilian mind is all about survival, territory, reproduction to keep the species going. When a reptile fights, it fights to the death. The reptilian mind does not think, it acts and responds instinctively to stimuli, it is automatic, without rational intervention. It is vicious, ferocious, animalistic, without conscience or remorse.
This is the bottom-line, but if you would like to learn more about the reptilian brain and the reptilian mind, you are free to continue reading more about it by following the link provided under "Further Reading".
In order to understand this breed of reptilian minds one should also consider the following, because it applies directly to them:
"I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure." - Hugo Weaving (playing as Agent Smith) in The Matrix (1999)
ON 10 August 2012 I stumbled upon the following page that is quite incredible coming from the well-known Great Zulu Shaman and Elder CREDO MUTWA On Alien Abduction & Reptilians
