Paraphilias with Brandynette presents: Paraphilias Addiction Understanding the Human Brain

It took me time and dedication to include and manage to explain in human language, using my own words. I wont be 100% correct, it is a very complicated subject and for sure dont know everything. It is based on reality with some touch of imagination. I wrote it for myself to better understand. now the idea is for it to be educational, hopefully create some awareness. and a healthy discussion.

I have a really strong opinion on the subject, i have too much experience. Avoiding a deppendance is always better than wanting to let go.

Original vid on channel DrugsLab
It legaly tests, show and explains all the posible substances. The channel has a scientifical approach and support from their Goverment. (Details please check yourself, this Blog post is long enough… sorryyy…) Ok, ok…

-Why do we even become addicted? To anything in fact?

Substances have very clear signals. Not the only things we can get addicted to. Bad habbit work the same way. Working, Gambling, Hoarding stuff to show worth.
Video games, or reading any science book until 4am, (…always slept in class.) Taking unessesary risks to get the extra adrenaline kick.

-The Addiction problem is a really simple one…. 😉 ….now, thanks to new research….

Basically I think its just the nature of how our brains work.The basic structure of our nerve system is responsable. It is made of neurons.

Neurons want only 2 things. Nutrients and stimulation. Dendrites move in the directions where the stimulation comes from.
Just imagine u are a brain, lol… Trapped in a skull, there is no light, there is no sound, limited space and nothing else but, +/-150B other neurons. The brain isnt even one single thing until the neurons link together to form the whole.

Brain and Mind are 2 dffierent things. The brain is based on the rules of nature. The Mechanics consisting of Chemistry, Biology and Fisics, etc. The Mind on the other hand is more ideal, abstract and philosofical. ie. How we manage our abilities or learn new ones. How we deal with emotions, how we see the world, ourselves and others.

Q: The Feedback of Brain and Mind creates that illusion of Concioussness?
-Lets leave the Mind out and focus on the mechanics first.

The mechanics of the brain are really simple! ROFL!
( if we have less than 10 neurons, and its only nutrients.)
-Neurons connect when stimulated.
-1st neuron: I found food, send signal.
-2nd neuron receives signal, sends dendrites, links to 1st and investigates. Found food, sends signal.
-1st neuron relays the signal, sends dendrite to investigate.

2x the signal 2x the neurons that send dendrites. More neurons receive the signals and send dendrites to investigate. More Neurons link up and cluster together. Now manage to decipher, store and relay a piece of information.

In the smallest scale our brains have a new single piece of information to use.

-We have learned something!

With all other signals, chemical, electromagnetical, our mentality. and what not.The amount of neurons, posible options.. just…. its ridiculously complex and irrelevant at this point… wish i know more.

Im almost certain that this is the only basic rule we need to understand addictions:

Our senses pick something up, neurons react to the stimulus, send out signals that modify other neuronal pathways. Our brains compare with past expererinces, make dessisions., store the result for next time.

-Thats exactly how we learn: Repetition + Trial and Error.

Our Brains must be able to know decipher all kind of signals and give our Minds the best answer.
Now scaling the ammount of neurons up.

Neurons that constantly recieve similar stimulus will cluster together, then clusters will cluster together, this is how we manage to decipher store and relay bigger parts of the puzzle.


The Only thing the Brain has to work with are the impulses that come from the senses.
Entire areas of the brain become sense specific and incredible powerful managing that information.

-More stimulation, more activity, more connections, more variables, more options to store information, general efficiency increases.
-Learning and training any ability fiscally modifies our Brain and increases our capacity to do more of it.

-There is a problem when we learn. Our subconscious cant tell the difference between reality or imagination. We reach wrong conclusions, bad decisions when we are emotional, even worse if high.

-When we are born
We have no clue what anything is, it takes us years to figure out what all the signals from our senses mean. Only thanks to our social interactions we learn to interpret and form associations to communicate. I think that we permanently hallucinate everything wew perceive and feel. Its just when humans agree on the same hallucination that we call it reality.

The more we use anything inside our minds the stronger the capacity of that area becomes. If we focus on our ears, our mind uses more to decipher what we are hearing.
Receive signal, connect, send signal. There is a permanent and constant feedback flow of signals.

-Neuronal Plasticity
This is how we actively learn or unlearn something, we focus, we understand and let our brains do the only thing it never stops doing. All the time, every day, every second we are alive, even worse when we are sleeping. Hundreds of thousands of neurons connect or disconnect, block or allow information to flow.. Every single tough fiscally modifies our Brain.

Neuronal Plasticity basically means that no single connection is permanent, neurons change or die regularly, smaller clusters dont always send the same clear signals.

-I think that our brain just systematically best guesses everything.

Q: Reason for the Human Error? Optical illusions? Wrong memories? Paraphilias?

-Neuroplaticity, Repetition + Trial and Error.
Our Brains become stronger the more we use it. We focus to learn new things, strengthening neuronal paths, optimizing the existing ones.

Ok i think i can now safely say why humans get addicted, to everything all the time!!!

We do something, we modify our brain, we learn. We are rewarded.
Our Brains optimize any repetetive task.

-We create Habbits. Learning, Social, Working etc.
Habbits are stronger, more connectios we intentionally create since we desire our brain to do so.

-This is also an evolutionary advantage.

Stone age this was great, we found a fruit tree thanks to the sweet smell, we calculated where it was, if it was safe. Ate as much as posible as fast as posible. Instant gratification Monkey. Collected as much as we could carry and fled. Maybe a predator is near.

-Adrenaline and the amygdala stimulate us just as a drug high.
Arriving home, joy kicks in. Self esteem is sky high, Sole focus of all social interaction that night. Remembering and telling the story, again and again, making it easier to tell every time. Reliving the memories and finding new possibilities to improve.

The amount of stimulation, number of new connections, sheer amount of new information that was learned and stored. Thanks to fear, fight/flight response. one will never forget that experience. 95% certainty that he would go again the next day.

We are just the brain, that was fundamentally rewritten by the new experience.
The brain became addicted to the experience. The consequences are different. The risk the same. We love to stimulate our brains, if we enjoy the experience we will repeat it. We learn by repetition. The more we learn the better we become. The stronger the need for stimulation of the involved clusters.

In the end, getting “addicted” is the basic mechanism of how our brain works.
Being addicted to running or learning or driving fast cars or drugs, irrelevant! Gime stimulation!

When our brain creates a cluster, it will only stay as long as it is stimulated.
Now you are a Professional Tennis player. The amount of resources dedicated to the hands will be completely deferent from a Professional soccer player.
Each one of our minds is wired to fulfil our desires, eventually the network of neurons dedicated will be so complexly interconnected, the entire lifes memories are linked, traits that define our personality are there. If its an addiction, like smoking cigarettes or 2 beers after work every day for years.

I consciously know that im doing something wrong. But my brain doesn’t, my brain just does his natural thing. Loves the exaggerated stimulation, sends signals and connects like crazy! Eventually one invests so much time of the day doing only one thing, toughs, desires, resources, time, social relations everything is sacrificed.

{So im learning, being indoctrinated by a dependence. Enslaved by my own natural ability to learn.}

-One needs focused effort to unlearn something like that. The time spend tripping must be filled with new and varied experiences. Like to, recicle or re purpose the unused neurons dedicated to the addiction. Boredom, not knowing how to fill the void and social rejection are the mayor relapse factors.

I will probably get hate for this opinion. Imagine, if we could just go to the regular Doc or certified Professional

-Customer: We are traveling to a festival. It will last a week. I want to take this and that. Is it posible?
-”Recreational Toxin Master”: Let me check your folder, yes, i dont see a problem. I have to remind you that this is the 3rd time this year, i wont consent another trip.
-Thanks doc no prob, u know i have a weakness for that one…

“Recreational Toxin Master”: This is the safe dosage for you. You must obey the rules and guidelines. Next appointment is the day you wake up and feel rested enough to get here.
Enjoy the festival

-hahah i wish, but the problem is still there

We are kidding ourselves if we think we can defeat drugs, we are humans there will always be a demand. We have been taking them for at least 6000 years. The huge difference was that we had some sort of nutjobs in the community, a rainman, a shaman, druid, wizard or any digressed thing they came up with on their trips.

-Blood of the savior is WINE… I dont want to believe, I want to know.

If we could change the way we define addiction. We just accept that sometimes we program our brains into endless loops of bad habits. Its either sugar or heroin. Fat dies of heart attack and the junkie dies from bad stuff.

– laboratory pure with certificate.
-Knowing beforehand what the effects will be to push the placebo effect higher.
-Correct dosage, risks and instructions, tested and available.
-Professional Supervision with open conversation.
-Opens the possibility for new medical treatments.
-Dramatic Stress Reduction and stuff.

-Every service and product has its cost.
-Taxes are charged.
-Controlled and regulated.
-Comercial increase thanks to a new legal demand and supply.
-Jobs are created to fill the need.
-Social intolerance to consequences resulting from substance or habit abuse might change.

-No more drug dealers.
-no more drug cartels
-drug related criminality in general will be reduced
-Jobs will be lost, Legal and Illegal.
-An entire sector of the natural black market will colapse
-Rich and powerful people will be pissed

-on the HomoSapiens User Manual DXDXDXD
-Learning how to properly use our Brains and reach a new level of education, social relations and sharing

-Discover all the other posible abilities to be discovered, or imagined?
-have a nicer Mind, a bigger consciousnesses and a fulfilling live.
-the awareness of our consciousness and be able understand the infinite possibilities the universe allows.

Thank you for reading one of my monologues, i have issues… it helps to write, literally still learning to do it. If you find any error or you see a correction for better understanding, please let me know! Thank you for taking your time!

How sexual relations is involved then you need to read Man has The Penis to satisfy The Woman!

I hope you enjoyed reading my fragmented opinion on Addictions
