“I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”
-Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
To preface this article, the full title is PEAK: The Neuroscientific Way to Self-Improvement, but I thought that might be a bit too much for the headline.
In the Red Pill community, discussions about stoicism, frame control, and controlling your emotions are pretty common place. What’s less common, however, is the discussion on why we have emotions to begin with and methods for controlling them.
Enter Titus Hauer and his latest book, PEAK. Continue reading “Book Review: Titus Hauer’s “PEAK””
I like to define courage as doing what you have to do when things are going crazy. In an age when whining and complaining about the things you have to do are all the rage, having the balls to step up to the plate when you may be unsure is a notable thing. Today we’ll discuss what courage is, how you can apply it differently, and how to keep yourself always prepared to rise to the occasion.

“He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.”
Inspired by a section of yesterday’s article, I decided I would elaborate on the subject of picking your battles.

- Frame is fluid and will find its own level when a deficit or a surplus of will is applied to change it. The forces that influence that lack or boost of will is irrelevant – just know that the conditions of an operative framework will shift because of them. -Rollo Tomassi
I write this article as a bit of a field report but more so as a way for me to explain something that can be lost on red pilled men, especially married ones. Frame is something that you must control for yourself, but the frame of your marriage, and who is in control of that frame sets the standard for a healthy or decaying relationship.

A huge part of the red pill is raising your SMV, having solid game, and attracting and having sex with women. Married guys have it similar, but the parameters are different. While certain aspects of game can be less important, other aspects are under constant scrutiny.

Those who have been a part of the red pill community for a while are probably very familiar with the concept of Dread Game even if they aren’t employing it. For many others, the term Dread Game sounds ominous, like some sick form of mental abuse that one spouse plays on the other.
It is true that some individuals utilize a darker version of the practice, but in actuality Dread Game is in and of itself, fairly benign. Continue reading “The 12 Levels of Dread: Introduction”
