Returning to the Scene of the Crime

Living consists in putting up with negative inputs from all quarters. Nature emits disturbing signals incessantly, with the simplicity of a cooler breeze or a set of clouds.

Positive-thinking realises that life is going to keep sending negative signals, from all quarters.
Negative-thinking readily dismisses a warning-sign as yet another negative input!
Optimism is something else...

Initially a wish to experience good, pleasant and wholesome things, optimism often gives way to a need to experience only what is enjoyable. If this urge becomes imperious, the least contrariety is apt to release critical emotions. The water fails to be warm enough as one steps under the shower, or too hot! Someone must have put a curse on this shower! Who can it be?... The rest of the day could amount to a search for a culprit.

As to negative-thinkers, it is typical of them to be concerned only with positive events, to a point of hypnosis when anything enjoyable happens, one might add...

Vigilance itself does not try to remove the cause of discontent.
Alertness consists in activating all possible preventions, regardless of time of day or local convention.

What we see instead, is that, somehow,
it has become socially incorrect to include specialised explanation when posting a warning-sign. Someone from another planet could read manuals, attend seminars, and still not know that hands must be washed after touching money—notes or coins, any currency— and before rubbing one's eyes. A call to arms is just as likely to be taken as a threat by individuals or groups, who may subsequently experience stress, even! This psychological system of reactions is justifiable insofar as the presence of danger does tend to promote a fear, an uncertainty—but what happens to general security, on that basis? For the benefit of all, it may be more important to differentiate an adult's reaction to discomfort, from a child's response to a momentary loss of impetus.

Stress is available before or after the fighting, rarely on the battlefield, and never in combat.

Personal satisfaction is a result of all an adult does in a day and in a life.
Happiness happens when one realises that it is possible to experience personal satisfaction very often in a day.

An adult who expects satisfaction tends to become unreasonable, reverts to infantilism for demanding it as a due—and grows increasingly disillusioned for having expected pleasure to be pleasurable at every turn. Whereas perpetual stimuli is all a child has to go by [because childhood's scope of evolution is limited due to biological imperatives, at this time]. Children are annoyed when pleasure fails to be available, rather than because something unpleasant has occurred. After a few years, the annoyed boy is ready to suspect existential conspiracy against him!... Oddly enough, the focus shifts from a need for pleasure [libido, in a broad sense], to a need to control reality—in order to make pleasurable things possible, it figures. In some cases [temperaments], this regime gives way to a virtual book-keeping of all the unpleasant things that can happen in a day.

Young girls are different: the absence of joy is a cause for sadness. In a second phase, they start philosophising...

The career of being a woman begins in two ways:
1—Striving for happiness

This feminine temperament strives to obtain modest happiness by doing something towards it.
2—Putting up with the lack of it
She may put up with the lack of mirth, for a time.

But all girls wake up one day realising that they are now a woman—then, until their last breath, work at making everyone happy as though it were everyone's due!

Interview with Reef Warner

If your boat has holes and you see sharks, you don't sing. As a parallel, noxious people wouldn't want you to stop singing—they would encourage you to more lyrics, if they could. Evil doesn't want its victims to stop being happy, or may prefer it to keep its victims happy.
As in Fattening the Pigs?
No, Nemesis hardly thinks that way—it would be petty, and pettiness leaves tracks; even a horse would fall in it!... It wants you to stay happy, sing, keep being interested in your own songs—give you more lyrics, if it could.
As to global insecurities raised by terror-threats, we have had a number of major incidents since Manhattan, one thing after another, from Bali to Casablanca in Indonesia—to name a few. The pattern is unpredictable, so is the extent of the event. Knowing a pattern would worth the beginning of a strategy. For lack of it, one looks at anything susceptible to reveal a pattern. Consider that events following September 11 were trying to be a repeat, in grand style...
Style!—what style, an atrocity?... Cowardice in a grand-style! What is there to learn from them, and who would want to?
An assassin doesn't quite return to the scene of crime as some animal, driven by mating instinct... Killing people is not enough. After a time in the business of making trouble, bullying life and pushing it about, destruction isn't enough: an assassin must have solace!
Agents of terror are planning a replay on some of their great moments, in your view?
They did Madrid, didn't they?
Yes... This must have meant a great deal to them, I guess...
Negative! It meant a lot to them, because it was capable of happening at all, and at the dimension of a major event. To the nefarious, major only ever equates with how much of a burden it is to someone else—the community at large, in this case. Taking enough lives to amount to a sense of victory was quite supernumerary, to the bombers! Vital to them: terror was able to get on rail—a critical installation. This was trying to say: We can do a little better than hitting School Buses, and when we want to!... Still, at that level of atrocity, perpetrators are unlikely to be satisfied by anything less than the real thing. Comparatively, the Manhattan's operation had half as much panache as all major strikes and daily bombings combined, since then.
You keep saying these words... Do you really anticipate another operation on such scale?
This is necessary information. Panache is the essential trigger—maniacs don't leave home without a fetiche!
Never heard of it!
Maybe not with this slant. But call it what you will, motive is another word for fetiche...
You mean, motive as in There's a motive behind every crime!?...
No one in the business of killing has ever repeated an operation out of plain nastiness alone. Only an ogre would—but ogres don't go for plain operations, whereas murderers are plain humans...
More like beasts!...
Use the fact that they are human people, if you would discern any pattern at all in how they move. Thinking them inhuman is twice an error!
But they are monsters! Who would carry out such acts and claim to be a person?
Some thing may be stealthy and odious, yet predictable for being human. Whereas thinking it a monster makes it at once mythical, and you might as well chase the white unicorn...
So—what are you saying!?
What is needed is to understand what triggers individuals, as opposed to focus on what a bomb does as it explodes; we know well what happens, then. Comparatively, we are still much too tentative as to what makes a person lose the total quality of being a person.

And then, there is the future...
