Capgras in the 21st Century

first_imgA little-known syndrome discovered exactly 200 years ago is becoming very relevant in the age of Facebook.The internet is rife with examples of the disconnect between reality and the virtual world. However, nowhere is more pronounced than on Facebook (FB). There, millions of people fill their friends’ feeds with images of a life well-lived – even if it’s not. The ability to create an idealized version of your own life and to share it so easily has never before been possible. What kind of effect has this had on our perceptions of ourselves and our online personas? Since social media has been around in some form or another for two decades, it’s a good time to have a look.Facebook is a Place Where You Can Pretend People love to portray their best selves on Facebook (and other social platforms, of course). Often, those ideal lifestyles they paint for themselves bely the darker side of life. Nobody really lives the ideal, sunny life where problems never arise, of course. But Facebook is a place where you can pretend. You can separate the real you from the ideal picture of you. In essence, you’re really splitting the yin from the yang, cordoning off the darker elements of your life. We all do it to some extent, by cherry picking the best images to share and then crafting uplifting messages to all who see them – “Had SUCH a great time on PEI this past weekend!”.Facebook is Also a Place to Manipulate Others In the same vein as painting a rosy picture of your own life, FB users can also paint other kinds pictures, like these:One-sided political argumentsUnscientific nonsense about fitness, beauty, health and wellness (“This anti-aging moisturizer actually reversed my skin damage!)Unsubstantiated scientific claims (“Global warming is a myth” etc.)In 2016, the U.S. presidential election process was compromised by an onslaught of “fake news” regarding the candidates and the issues. We’ve heard a lot about Fake News the past few years. By now, it’s clear that we should all be a little more skeptical when it comes to believing everything we see online, especially if the source is Facebook. As one Stanford University scientists puts it in his article on Capgras Syndrome,“Through history, Capgras syndrome has been a cultural mirror of a dissociative mind… Today we think that what is false and artificial in the world around us is substantive and meaningful.”~Robert Sapolsky, professor of biology, neurology, and neurosurgery at Stanford UniversityWhy are People so Easily Manipulated on FB? When it comes to the problematic presidency of Donald J. Trump, people still wholeheartedly support him. This is despite glaring factual evidence that he doesn’t believe in science, knows very little about political history, doesn’t make decisions based on good information, and might therefore be little more than a big, phony imposter.The ability to change the opinions of others with Facebook’s easy and widespread delivery of manipulative content is disturbing. It also begs the question, “why do so many people still rely on Facebook and other self-supporting online sources to form their political opinions?”The ability to willingly separate recognition and familiarity are what make Facebook such a powerful platform for delusion.So we know that Facebook is a place where we can all pretend. Individuals can separate the real from the ideal or they can create an imaginary world that funnels their followers into certain beliefs or actions (voting a certain way, for example).Facebook’s algorithms have been exposed to support mass suspension of belief by serving people the content they want to hear. It’s called a “filter bubble”.These algorithms use data to provide self-supporting news, not real reporting, to users who are only looking to have their self-serving opinions reinforced. What’s wrong with these people? Are they psychologically damaged? It could be that they suffer from a syndrome that’s both widespread and little-known: Capgras Syndrome.Introducing Capgras Syndrome People who suffer from Capgras Syndrome are convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an imposter. Sort of like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, where someone looks the same but they’ve actually been replaced by an alien… only with Capgras, it’s simply just another human, masquerading as your spouse or a close relative.Scientists believe that the disorder stems from a damaged brain that can’t handle the classic love-hate relationship we all supposedly have with our loved ones. Because their brains can’t reconcile the love-hate conflict, people cope by splitting their loved ones into two different people. The real person, the one they love, has been replaced by someone they don’t trust: someone they “hate”. Both exist but the “real” one is lost. Alive, but inaccessible.As scientific knowledge of how the brain works has progressed over the past century, there’s new insight on why Capgras syndrome occurs in people. The person who suffers from Capgras may recognize an “intruder” as someone close to them but they don’t feel familiar with that person. Modern science tell tells us that recognition is a cognitive function whereas familiarity is an emotional response.Combined, cognition and emotion form the foundation for how we relate to other people. Separated, as they are in someone who suffers from Capgras, and the balance is off. The opposite of Capgras is where you don’t recognize familiar faces but you do remember who your loved ones are.In this context, familiarity is defined as “knowing the true identity of someone’. Hold onto that because it’s going to be relevant a little later.Social Media Also Creates Disassociation Between Recognition and Familiarity Social media allows us to keep in contact with friends but only superficially. We only see upbeat snippets of their edited lives. We recognize them but we don’t truly know what’s really going on in real live. In other words, we aren’t truly “familiar” with them via online channels.So if we recognize someone but we’re not familiar with them, isn’t that the definition of Capgras Syndrome?That’s exacerbated by the fact that salespeople, scammers, and others are constantly claiming to know us in order to extract information or convince us to buy something. They’re not who they say they are so we get used to the idea that nobody is who they say they are. In other words, everyone is an imposter.Doesn’t that sound a lot like Capgras, too?A Few Huge Side Notes A Huge Side Note Here: It’s Possible to Delude Even Yourself on FacebookThere’s an offshoot of Capgras Syndrome in which the person you don’t recognize is yourself. There are documented cases where people look in the mirror and see an imposter. The person looks like them, dresses like them, and talks the same as them, too. The person even feels that they know the person in the mirror very well. Nevertheless, they perceive that person to be an imposter – one who typically ends up being aggressive.This is usually called atypical Capgras syndrome.So, when we look into the mirror of Facebook and our self-created timelines and feeds are reflected back to us as the ideal self (one we really shouldn’t recognize as real), is that yet another version of Capgras? One in which the mind has separated an entity that’s close to us (ourselves) into two separate entities? Like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?There are indeed several versions of Capgras, all of which are part of a larger set of delusional states.In any case, Capgras aside, there’s definitely some delusion when it comes to Facebook, our portrayals of ourselves, and the self-supporting news we want to hear. It may be tied to narcissism or it may be part of a syndrome where our digital lives are feeding our psychological disorders. There are actual scientists pondering that last idea. In an opinion piece titled, Facebook: has it created a generation of ‘self-absorbed spin doctors?”, a researcher from the University of Royal Holloway London conjectures that the social media platform has created a culture of narcissism.Another Huge Side Note: Could Trump Himself Have Capgras?last_img read more

Travel platform Touristly secures investment round from Tune Labs

first_imgTravel platform Touristly secures investment round from Tune LabsTravel platform Touristly secures investment round from Tune LabsAfter a recent win at Pitch@Palace Malaysia, Malaysian travel startup Touristly announced today that it has successfully secured a strategic investment from Tune Labs, a Kuala Lumpur-based startup incubator and accelerator headed by Tony Fernandes, Datuk Kamarudin Meranun, and Lim Kian Onn. Aiming to accelerate its growth as the preeminent platform for travel itinerary planning, Touristly is currently in the midst of incorporating its platform with several companies in Tune Group, such as AirAsia’s Travel 3Sixty, Tune Hotels, Tune Protect, and AirAsia BIG, optimising the travel planning experience for travellers and holidaymakers.“We are very excited to be part of the Tune Group family as it complements our services for travellers and tourists. After a traveller books their flights and accommodation, the natural next step is to plan the holiday itinerary itself and this is where we come in,” said Aaron Sarma, founder and CEO of Touristly. “We currently offer 7,000 deals in over 70 destinations and we will be working to grow our base to shadow AirAsia and AirAsia X’s 120 destinations. This will be in favour of completing the travel experience for anyone who flies with the airline,” he added. According to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), travellers spend 40% of their travel budget on on-ground activities which amounts to about US$860 billion and Asia alone represents a market opportunity of at least US$100 billion. On a yearly basis, AirAsia flies 55 million passengers across the region and this integration intends to leverage on these two factors to gain an ancillary revenue, benefiting both parties. “This Tune Labs and Touristly agreement provides a great example of how the Tune Group ecosystem can generate significant synergies with a startup, even at a relatively nascent stage. We look forward to working with Aaron and his team, establishing Touristly as the Asia Pacific traveller’s first port of call when planning and booking travel activities,” statedTravel platform Touristly secures investment round from Tune LabsArun Verma, Co-Managing Partner of Tune Labs. “Touristly provides the Tune Group with a neat stepping stone to extend its presence along the travel and hospitality chain. AirAsia travellers, BIG Loyalty members, and Tune Hotels guests will now have easy access to a one-stop platform to plan, book, and purchase holiday activities – at a compelling price point consistent with Tune Group unique selling point – and share their travel experiences throughout Asia,” said Gareth Lim, Co-Managing Partner of Tune Labs. Kicking off this partnership was Touristly’s integration with AirAsia BIG loyalty which took place in March, in view of allowing members to earn AirAsia BIG Points when they use the travel platform to create and book their holiday itineraries, followed by an integration with Tune Hotels, providing on-ground activity concierge services.Touristly emerged as one of the two winners in the inaugural Pitch@Palace Malaysia and will be heading to Pitch@Palace Global at St James’s Place in the United Kingdom come December 2016. Established by the Duke of York, Pitch@Palace is a platform for showcasing technology startups to a global audience of influencers.About TouristlyLaunched in June 2015, Touristly is a platform that enables travellers to customize holidays with ease.

Remember the dogathon

first_imgThe Animal Anti-Cruelty League (AACL) would like to remind the public that the annual Dog-a-thon will be held at Egerton’s Agar Field on May 31. Registration starts at 2:30pm and the walk will start at 3pm. The entrance fee is R30 a dog and the walk will be 2.5km. All proceeds raised will go towards the upkeep of the kennels. This includes housing and feeding abused and abandoned animals, while we try to find them new homes.We are always looking for donations and are desperate for a new stationery cabinet. Winter is almost here and the pets at the kennels need blankets to keep warm at night. The animals also need food, and we are appealing to the public for dry and wet cat and dog food. Please find it in your heart to help. If you can help with either a stationery cabinet, blankets or food, please contact the kennels on 076-151-1784. WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite The league would like to ask the public to call them in advance if they wish to drop an animal off. Over the weekend, someone took a cat to the kennels, but did not call or even hoot. They left the cat with some food and water, and pushed it through the fence. However, they put the cat into a private yard and the dogs in that yard killed the cat. Let this be a lesson to everyone! Call if you want an animal to be taken in by us!There are currently many cats and dogs at the kennels whose time is running out. These sweet animals need kind and loving homes or else they will be put to sleep. There is a wide variety of cats to choose from, and a dog to suit any family. Please visit the kennels and choose your next best friend. Orphan animals are just the best! They will love you to the ends of the earth if you show them you care. In particular, there are two female Dachshund cross Jack Russell dogs that have one week left to find homes. Please give these adorable puppies a chance at life and love.Thanks goes out to Pierre Massyn, Spar, TFS, Mr Maharaj and Ladysmith SAI Centre.last_img read more

Fannie Freddie Close to Repaying Treasury Draws

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bailouts Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Investors Lenders & Servicers Profits Quarterly Earnings Service Providers Treasury Department 2013-11-08 Tory Barringer In the midst of an ongoing political debate surrounding their future, “”Fannie Mae””:http://www.fanniemae.com/portal/index.html and “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/ continue to see strong profits. Both GSEs put out their earnings reports Thursday, showing elevated numbers as they continue to benefit from an improving housing market.[IMAGE]According to its “”quarterly report””:http://www.fanniemae.com/resources/file/ir/pdf/quarterly-annual-results/2013/q32013_release.pdf, Fannie Mae brought in $8.7 billion in profits in the third quarter, marking the seventh consecutive quarter of gains. The same time last year, the mortgage giant reported a comparatively small net income of $2.6 billion.Fannie Mae attributed its third-quarter wins to continued positive developments in home prices, which brought a reduction the company’s loan loss reserves. Numbers also saw a boost from compensatory obligations stemming from a “”settlement””:https://themreport.com/articles/bofa-fannie-mae-resolve-repurchase-claims-2013-01-07 with Bank of America early in the year.[COLUMN_BREAK]Meanwhile, profits shot up to $30.5 billion at “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/investors/er/pdf/2013er-3q13_release.pdf, though most of that came from tax benefits. Pre-tax income was $6.5 billion compared to $4.9 billion last year. It was the eighth straight quarter of positive earnings and the second most profitable quarter in the company’s history, Freddie Mac said.While the quarter’s figures look encouraging for two companies that not long ago relied on a taxpayer-funded bailout to get by, they noted that current growth levels are supported largely by abnormally high home price appreciation, making the unsustainable over the long run as prices moderate.Still, the companies’ earnings this quarter will allow them to make substantial payments to the Treasury in December–$8.6 billion from Fannie Mae and $30.4 billion from Freddie Mac–bringing them closer to having “”repaid”” the money they’ve drawn to stay afloat. However, the nature of the government’s agreement with the GSEs means their dividend payments don’t reduce prior draws.Together, the two companies will have paid back about $185 billion to Treasury as of December, nearly equaling the $188 billion they took following the economic crash.Despite the third-quarter reports, policymakers will likely keep on in their plans to reform the secondary market, many of which involve the “”eventual phasing out””:https://themreport.com/articles/senators-bipartisan-gse-reform-bill-gaining-momentum-2013-09-19 of the two GSEs. For now, though, taxpayers are that much closer to seeing their bailout money fully repaid.

Six Senses Hotels unveils Iceland property

first_imgWith Iceland enjoying clean air, sustainable energy and high national happiness, it is no surprise that Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is daydreaming about the country of fire and ice for its next development: Six Senses Össurá Valley. It will be a hub for people passionate about nature, wellness and adventure by day, and indulgent dining, comfortable beds and perhaps a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis by night. The rugged south-eastern coast of Viking country has an expansive and diverse natural environment. From glacier tongues, craggy volcanoes, ice-filled lagoons and geothermal lakes to untouched highlands and long black beaches; many of these natural wonders have become famed for their beauty and are visited throughout the year (via the single ring road). This is the mythical setting for Six Senses Össurá Valley, 4,000 acres (1,619 hectares) of privately-owned land in Svínhólar near Lóni. ADVERTISEMENTThe flatland at the southern end is adjacent to the Lón Lagoon, which is separated from the North Atlantic Ocean by a beautiful black sand beach. This is the biggest gathering space for swans in the country and Six Senses will be involved in monitoring and protecting this Icelandic population. The first phase of the project will see the opening of a 70-guestroom resort and private cottages dotted on the surrounding land serving as an icon for sustainable living. Six Senses-branded residences will offer residents the opportunity to call this exquisite location home and tap into all the unique amenities and privileges of the Six Senses resort. Built using renewable and locally-sourced materials and adhering to high standards of energy and water efficiency, guest accommodation and residences will tread lightly on the earth while providing an uncompromising level of space and comfort. The project’s architect John Brevard has added another layer to the design brief to create a space that considers the implications of human bioenergy, electromagnetism, astrology, sacred geometries and the principles of Feng Shui. The goal is to align guests and residents with natural order and hyperdimensional realities, so they recharge and reconnect.To this extent, the country’s mystical elves whose pyramid-shaped homes are scattered around the land will also add a touch of mysticism to the project’s design. Reinforcing the relationship between the inside and outside, while providing a feeling of comfort and warmth, the resort’s welcome lounge will feel integrated into the surrounding environment and include a library, a cinema room, Earth Lab showcasing the project’s sustainability efforts, and a water bar. Six Senses Spa with a functional fitness centre, yoga studio and comprehensive wellness programming will be a highlight of any stay. There will be a farmhouse with an organic garden and a cooking school where chefs will share their passion for hearty and healthy food and showcase farm-to-table seasonal recipes. All-day dining, a specialty restaurant offering seafood delicacies and a lively bar will embrace indoor and outdoor living, following the guiding principles of Eat With Six Senses. “This development epitomizes our commitment to finding locations where guests can be right in the heart of nature, and where they will come face-to-face with the raw beauty, power and soul of this magical destination. “It will also appeal to experience-seekers looking for something uniquely joyful and playful. Legend holds that mystical elves still occupy the rocks and cliffs of this land. “Each time we talk about the project we smile,” said chief executive officer, Neil Jacobs, of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
