What I just described is a spectrum.

Fear is a generalized signal of alertness. It can be modelled as ―noise in the
system‖, which I’ll be explaining shortly.
As an animal, your automatic response to the fear signal is to immediately locate
a source. Awareness is supposed to rush to the senses:

Ears prick up, eyes open wide, body becomes erect and ready. After a period of
time, if no source is found, the signal subsides and the body relaxes again:

Mammals however also have pattern-matching. This means some of the fear signal
is diverted into brain areas associated with memory to see if the current situation’s
sensory input (from the immediate environment) ―matches‖ a past encounter stored

in memory, to better tailor the response based on past experience. This is the basis
of all learning.
The end result is that one’s awareness contains sensory input from the
environment plus any matched patterns from memory which are ―inserted‖ into
awareness, in varying degrees of vividness depending upon 1) accuracy of match
(0%–99%) and 2) emotional intensity of the stored pattern (an intense experience
which is only a 40% match for example will nevertheless be inserted vividly into
awareness). In my book I call these inserted pattern-matches ―overlays‖.
Here are the problems you face with this, as a human:
1. You have a vast number of patterns because you live so long AND because we
live complex lives where lots of patterns are absorbed. You will also have
invalid patterns such as things you saw on the news which do not apply to your
current situation in realistic terms but which you have nevertheless absorbed
and integrated. So, seeing a Muslim at an airport automatically matches that
you are about to be blown up.
2. You have language, which is the ability to place patterns in set orders to arrive
at an end pattern. This is known as logic, despite it frequently arriving at
an irrational conclusion.
3. You are trained out of sensory awareness and into your head (cognitive
awareness) from a very early age, first via language and then heavily
reinforced by the academic system (―problem-solving‖ and absorption of vast
arrays of patterns non-applicable to everyday life).
The result of these factors is that, instead of defaulting to the sensory awareness
check and allowing the fear signal to resolve upon finding no rational source, one
tends instead to consult one’s concepts and place them in logical chains, often
ending in irrational results. The fear signal is activating cognition more than it is
sensory awareness. This is paranoia.
When the process is made fully cognitive, i.e. sensory awareness is almost entirely
ignored in favour of concepts, this is psychosis. Remember: the patterns
you invoke needn’t ever have happened to you: it might have been something you
saw on the news or an outcome you determined as a result of faulty logic.
The lower areas of the brain cannot tell the difference between sensory input
and internally-generated patterns.
This leads us to positive feedback loops.

Positive Feedback Loops

The fear signal moves into the abdomen where it ruminates as an ongoing tension. to you it feels socially unacceptable to walk around in this high state of alert (like a wide-eyed maniac). a fear signal is felt. it means that an initial seed of fear. I have noticed that anxiety correlates directly with bad posture. Fear on the other hand gives good upright posture and full breathing as awareness spreads outwards to the senses — an ―alert‖ pose. . In terms of your experience. Let’s say you’re in a crowd of people (= alertness signal). inhibiting breathing and natural movement and keeping the body on high alert with no resolution until withdrawal. Positive feedback seems to govern much of human experience in all areas. and feeding back into cognition (then patterns then fear again) in a loop. by invoking past terrifying experiences via pattern-matching. Social anxiety is perhaps the best example of this. the alertness signal would at some point give way to relaxation. where the signal grows with each iteration. so you instead inhibit that sensory check by lowering your head (―keep your head down‖). and I intend to write a full article on it at some point for the Principles section. as the body contracts into a defensive form. but the sensory check is inhibited and the fear signal is brought downwards into the body for rumination as opposed to spreading out to the senses. amplifying it. You can test this now by intentionally making your eyes wide — your body will instinctively lift upwards. In engineering this kind of loop is known as positive feedback. The sensory check would have your awareness spread fully into your senses (refer back to the erect meerkat. With anxiety. Upon finding none. However. eyes and ears fully open to absorb sensory data to identify any potential sources of fear).fear begets more fear. the point is. In the context of this article.Because the lower brain areas cannot distinguish between external and internal patterns. Anxiety Anxiety does not appear in this chain because it is a slightly different process. internal patterns feed back into the fear signal. can quickly grow into terror.

current neurochemistry (whether organic or altered via substances) and all your life experiences so far (the patterns and their perceived outcomes (also patterns!) you have acquired up till this point. Become wide-eyed. Baseline Fear Level The strength of your baseline fear signal (which is really just an alertness signal) is a result of your genetics. the more sensory checks which are ―passed‖ (no fear source determined -> relax) in the more situations. just by thinking about them!). again. I checked myself in the mirror and the wide-eyed look is not actually particularly noticeable. epigenetics. Within a few moments. . your lower brains will be satisfied there is no ―source‖ and will send a relax signal. the lower the fear baseline becomes over time. If they have mostly resulted in a positive outcome. You will also find that your posture automatically improves while wide-eyed. say. or minutes depending on the strength of the fear signal. for whatever reason (often you won’t really know the reason). This is the difference between someone who loves. erect. you will be more inclined towards fear (alertness). and someone whose fear spikes quickly in those situations (or in advance of them.The Take-Home Lesson The take-home lesson from this article is that fear is best experienced at the sensory checkstage. If most of your patterns have resulted in a negative outcome thus far. Whenever you feel a fear signal. is to default to your senses in any “alertness” situation. The good news is that. and to which you refer back reflexively when processing external stimuli). you will be more inclined towards relaxation. and listen out. There is no point letting social self-image inhibit your ability to process fear organically and therefore have it resolve quickly. The take-home lesson. The alternative is rumination (anxiety) or pattern-chaining (paranoia). going to a nightclub or riding a roller coaster. allow awareness to spread entirely into the senses.

to the point I don’t think I’m me. For now. such as bipolar disorder. No source is found in the senses. in lieu of an external source found via the senses. I will explain the fear signal and how it activates different brain areas (and. In other words. Do you see anything in this picture? . I was inspired to write this after my friend described to me recently her breaks with reality as a result of her bipolar: Sometimes I have complete mania. This idea is known in Eckhart Tolle’s work as presence. one is simply assigned internally — often arbitrarily and having no bearing on the ―real‖ source of the fear signal! Why the senses are not checked. the wrong ones) via my noise model. It begins with generalized fear. or need to scrape skin off to make sure I have bones. or believing the upstairs is going to collapse on me. The search for a source then begins. The Noise Model This is my pet theory of schizophrenia and other mental conditions which invoke paranoia and/or psychosis. obviously in this case. or why they are not believed if they are checked. ―Believing the upstairs is going to collapse on me‖ is a psychotic delusion. so internal concepts and patterns are invoked to attribute as the source.In fact. default to your senses as much as possible in all life situations (outside specific cognitive tasks such as problem-solving). is something I need to dedicate more time towards understanding.

) .What about now? You can now see a very faint smiley face. (The noise is uniform and monochromatic. You can play around with this idea yourself in Photoshop. All I’ve done is add 5% noise over the whole image.

a generalized fear (alertness) signal can be modelled as noise flooding the brain. this can also make you see things which aren’t there. moving right along to pattern-matching internal concepts and past experiences. The senses appear to be skipped in schizophrenics. This is particularly important when looking at paranoia. noise is pattern-matched to people and objects. This can be modelled as the left brain hemisphere pattern-matching noise from the right amygdala tolanguage.Now look back at the first image. Then the pattern was stored in your brain. and see the smiley face! You ―learned‖ to see the pattern by experiencing it just once in the second image and then expecting to find it when you looked back to the first image!! The same phenomenon of pattern-matching to noise can easily be seen in action when you look at clouds and they start to resemble objects. What’s happened? The noise in the second image boosted the pattern (even though it also boosted the ―nothingness‖ by the same amount — the brain is geared to find patterns). The senses are supposed to be the first port of call. Auditory hallucinations are the most common form of delusion in schizophrenia. head down. muttering to themselves. We can model schizophrenic delusion as different brain areas pattern-matching noise in different ways. They tend to walk along in straight lines. So a general fear signal becomes voices. psychosis and delusion. Noise and the Right Amygdala In my model. however. You will now be able to see the smiley face quite easily. Just as with clouds. staring at a single point. causing different areas to pattern-match more readily. Fear. I believe the source of the ―noise‖ of fear is the right amygdala. Their awareness is internal. and you could easily ―pattern-match‖ it to the first image (which you will likely have perceived as blank before). I have observed schizophrenics going about their business and the first and most obvious characteristic I have noticed is their apparent detachment from ―reality‖. the first response to fear is to attribute a source. which should really be referred to as detachment from their senses. I believe they are mainly pattern-matching right-amygdala noise to verbal processing in the left hemisphere. Remember. In visual hallucinations. They chain .

as it also induces relaxation (and thus a reduction in systemic ―noise‖).concepts together with fearful outcomes which are then fed back to the right amygdala boosting the noise. The problem with these routes however is rapid tolerance. SSRIs have also been shown to directly and quickly reduce activity in the right amygdala. with unpredictable effects). until these mechanisms are better understood. and a feedback loop is formed. I believe these work by reducing the overall amount of ―noise‖ in the brain. I also believe the relatively thin corpus callosum in humans might be partly responsible for the communications problems which cause emotional signals to be incorrectly pattern-matched by other brain regions. I alluded to the possibility that ancestral ketogenic diets (e. system-wide. In my bipolar post.). in addition to drugs if required. which is likely why they can be effective for treating anxiety in some people. Calming the Amygdala The standard treatment for schizophrenia is antipsychotics. to be opioids and GABAergics. paleo) may have a calming effect on the amygdala via producing a ketone. from my own experience and research (I am not schizophrenic but have had severe anxiety). Additionally. These types of drugs are frequently used in self-medication by people with fear/anxiety problems. Ultimately any treatment plan needs to include cognitive-behavioural techniques for bringing the locus of awareness back to the senses (where no danger will be found).) and GABA drugs such as alcohol and benzodiazepines (valium etc. Ultimately. In my opinion. mindfulness meditation is a good catch-all method. which is GABAergic. GABA has been shown to be higher in meditators. alcohol in particular has such a wide range of activating effects that it can cause more problems than it solves (alcohol is a ―dirty‖ drug which binds to a huge array of nerve cell receptor types. in the form of opiates (pain pills. there will not be a ―one size fits all‖ method for treating disorders such as schizophrenia and anxiety . heroin etc. BHB. The two most effective types of drug which more directly calm the right amygdala appear to me.g.

partial cognitive pleasure (craving and scheming) –> full cognitive pleasure (delusions of grandeur. any internally-generated pleasure not grounded in the senses). which is the ―anticipation of reward / motivation‖ signal. Serotonin might also be ―satisfaction‖ in the form of relief after escaping danger (lowering activity in the fear signal). but you can figure it out yourself by simply substituting every fear word in the above post with a pleasure word. ranging from sensory to cognitive. Turning on reward has the direct effect of lowering the focus placed on fear.g. I am not completely clear on serotonin at this point.
