Self-tickling , Parkinson's and Schizophrenia

Self-Tickling , Parkinson’s and Schizophrenia

Andre Willers
20 Apr 2013
A simple self-tickling procedure to ameliorate Parkinson’s and Schizophrenia is adduced .

Discussion :
1.Self-tickling of the “Ha-Ha” variety cannot succeed because of internal brain and muscle communications .
2.Parkinson’s and Schizophrenia are defined by  poor communication between various brain centers . Anticipation is the crucial factor .
3.Schizoprenics can tickle themselves . See  . No anticipation .
4. Parkinson’s : trembling or freezing because of lack of anticipation . Standard definition .

5. A Simple Recipe :
5.1 Grip something solid with one hand . The fingertips must be in touch .
5.2 Comb your hair with the other hand .
5.3 Yawn and !Click (see Appendix B)
Why it works : See Appendix A .
6. This will increase anticipation .
It involves a lot of biochemistry  , neural circuitry and some thumb suck . I leave it to the experts . But this works .
7. Mirrors or cameras (CCTV , etc)
These will trigger the brain’s mirror-neurons . Mostly good .
8.Avatars :
Self-identification with corresponding mirror-neuronal networks .Your guess is as good as mine .
Don’t lose your grip while you comb through the hairs of the various universes .

Virtual Tickling

Tickling is one of the few stand-downs for human stressors . It can be mimicked .
Discussion :
Tickling evolved from the baby clutching the mother . The mother’s body hair lightly tickled (knismesis – see ) . But clutching the mother tightly , the baby sensed the interplay of the mother’s muscles (gargalesis -
If the baby loses its grip and falls , the Moro reflex kicks in ( See Appendix II) . also why some humans have a fear of falling .
A light tickling can be done by the individual (ie surprise is not necessary ). Hence the success of the Comb (See Appendix I) . Self-grooming is possible .
Heavy tickling (gargalesis) :
This is important enough that separate threat-evaluations at the astrocytes and amygdala evolved to deal with it . A short period stimulation is stress->flight->mother->stand-down , but prolonged periods without a stand-down just increases the stress levels. Torture , in other words . And it has been used as such by humans (see Tickle torture)
The heavy-tickling reputedly needs randomness , but from the argument above randomness mimicking the musculature of the back of a fast-moving mother will be a super-image .
In other words , make like Tarzan swinging through the treetops with baby cling to your back .
Both light tickling and heavy tickling are needed to convince the baby it is safe and the various reflexes can stand down . Safe back at mommy’s back .
Smiling :
Baby smiling is signalling approval , but also part of the stand-down process .
The gurgling I draw the line at .
Clutching : another necessary .
Baby clutches mother , hard .
Fingerpads and biceps must also signal that docking has occurred .
The Combing Reflex:
Licking , grabbing and holding is interpreted by the baby that Mother really cares . Combing must then be classified as as a light-tickling .

Virtual Tickling can now be envisaged .
1.Heavy tickling is the ticklish question .
For a single person : (like a comb)
  1. Clutch the edge of a desk with the left hand , where all the fingertips are gripping (including the thumb) . Tense the biceps as if you are clutching hard . Use the right hand to pressure-stimulate parts of the left torso and upper thighs . Target armpit regions . But any left-side torso region will do . Smile without baring the teeth .
  2. Repeat with right hand .
No more than five minutes (potentiating threshold)
Try it . There is a marked reduction of basal stress . And subsequent increase in immune system efficiency (order of 4) .
Two persons are about four times better . Hence the prevalence of marriage .
This did not happen all at once . So , there must be a memory component .It is very old ,
See you at the Tickleodeon .

The oldest profession .
Hair Dressing and Grooming .

The time-traveller with hairdressing and grooming skills can get a job anytime back to hominid days . Beats plumbing any day .

This partially explains the queer gene : Faux-queer . A cunning stratagem to get close to females without the usual male chest-beating .


Grooming is built-in to the hair of mammals .

Hairs get tangled and knotted ( see Theory of Knots) . Your personal experience is that after day’s activity and a night’s sleep , your hair gets tangled and knotted . The theory shows that it is nearly certain that this will occur in any system with three degrees of freedom .

Tangled hair is a bit of no-no to our homonin . It shows that it cannot get a grooming partner . Parasites also have access to unprotected skin .

Chaos first did the weaving with knots and tangles .

Un-weaving was then invented .

Initially fingernails , then a sharp , hard pointed stick ( a one-toothed comb) to tease the knots apart ..
When a favourite stick was kept , it became a tool .

A one-toothed comb .

Found all over in old sites , but usually called something else .

Plaiting of hair followed . Then some unsung woman genius inverted it and plaited grasses and other fibrous growths . Ropes and nets were invented .
Physical strength became unnecessary .
Mk I humans followed .

MkII humans followed after Toba , when weaving was invented as insulation (clothes) . So was fashion , and the world was never the same .

From the evidence , fashion seems to be a more powerful driver than anything . I would like to put an “except” here , but from the Greenland evidence where people starved to death because eating abundant fish around them was “out of fashion” with some old bishop I cannot .

What is of interest is that un-weaving was invented first , then weaving .
Note the correlation of Peace being invented before War .

Multiple-tooth combs .
An invention so ubiquitous that every human on the planet today has one and uses it at least once a day .

It enables an individual to self-groom . You can comb out the tangles in your hair or pelt by your own , without help .

This had an enormous effect on the development of civilization . The very concept of individualism is predicated on the existence of combs .

It frees the individual from the tyranny of the group .

An unkempt individual is excluded . No ifs or buts . Look around you at the homeless people . Once grooming is lost , so is social acceptance and survival . Hence the large number of spaza-hairdressers . It is not an affectation , but sheer survival .

See “Super Refugee”

Note the insistence of disciplined groups like the military or police to hair grooming . Or the inverse , the trust civilians have for anybody with a taut haircut .

See “Old Age Markers”
Note the hairstyles of the Mandarin class in China : shaven in front , denoting wisdom from survival , and extravagant hair (plaits) at the back , denoting humanity .
Hence , a monk will shave his head denoting a divorce from human concerns .

If someone obviously not in a religious order shaves his head (like bouncers , etc) they signal an indifference to the grooming order . They are essentially doomed . An extremely interesting feedback cycle is initiated that ends in the marginalization of such individual . They tend not to have children .

It must be noted that these are universal hominin markers , operating at well below conscious perception .


Appendix II
Moro Reflex
Fear of falling , or more exactly , fear of losing contact with mummy’s hairy , ticklish back . (Knismesis) .This can be mimicked by the infant .
But the motion of muscles in mummy’s back is more reassuring . (Gargalesis) . Heavy tickling . Associated with clutching hard . Semi-random .
This reflex is a response to a sudden loss of support, when the infant feels as if it is falling. It is believed to be the only unlearned fear in human newborns[citation needed]. The primary significance of this reflex is in evaluating integration of the central nervous system (CNS), and it involves 3 distinct components:
  1. spreading out the arms (abduction)
  2. unspreading the arms (adduction)
  3. crying (usually)

Yawning and !Click

Andre Willers
19 Apr 2013
Synopsis :
Yawning is part of the body’s stress stand-down system .
Discussion :
1.The most important part of the yawn is closing the teeth on nothing . !Click . This stands-down the fight-or-flight response to stress .
2.The logic flow :
In a hunt , the fight-or-flight reflex is activated . This involves a gaping mouth , rapid inhalation . If the hunt is successful , the mouth closes on something soft (flesh) . If not , then the teeth click together , causing percussion effects through the body . If the hunter misses about three times , the chances of catching anything is remote . Therefore , the fight-or-flight system then stands down to conserve energy . This operates at synapse level .
How to mimic it :
2.1 Yawn : open mouth wide . Ready to bite . Inhale (oxygenate) .
2.2 Bite down on nothing . Teeth clicks .
Percussion effects causes density variations in neurotransmitters . This is recognized by neural networks at synapse level to stand-down . This has to be repeated at least three times .
2.3 Tongue clicks : these will enhance the effect . (Percussion)

3. Sex :
Nipping will then enhance arousal . The teeth closes on something yielding . A sex toy that has the plasticity as flesh will have the same effect , and spare your partner some wear-and-tear . Clicking the teeth will signal a stand-down . Literally .
4.Boredom :
Boredom is a stressor . (Google it) . That is why humans and animals yawn when bored . The same stress-relief mechanism as above .
A yawning predator is quite dangerous . It is actually stressed and aroused . Looking for trouble . Ask any teacher or sergeant .
5.Sleepiness :
The body is yawning and clicking teeth in the process of standing-down stress systems to be able to sleep .
6.Contagious yawning :
Social animals are signalling each other that fight-or-flight systems are standing down . Mirror-neurons enhance the effects .
7. How to relieve stress or insomnia :
Yawn , double click teeth on each other , double click toungue . Repeat three times .

8.If no teeth or artificial teeth , the percussion does not propagate as well . Why old people have insomnia and grouchiness . Use tongue click instead . The same for babies or small children with immature teeth.
See all my previous posts on the !Click language .
9. Super !Click :
Like super images (idoru) .
Dentures that exaggerate the percussion can be built .
The poor man can just eat plain Rice Krispies . The implosion of compressed rice-puffs will have the same effect (sonance) .
Random , yes , but remember Stochastic Resonance .
Freezing the rice crispies should enhance the percussive effect .
10 . Forget tranquilizers or sleeping pills . A tablespoon or two of smartly bitten plain rice crispies will have the same effect .
There are many recipes for rice crispy treats , plain or frozen on the net . Many explicitly used for stress .
If you can hear the pop-crunch , so can the percussive systems .
Watch a dog with a bone .
11. Placebo nano-particles .
Something to stand-down overactive immune systems .
When the crunch comes , the tough choose rice crispies .
