Subject: An idea for a blog post: Psychology: Tackling Social and Scientific Problems
To: mcriddled.riddled @gmail.com
I came across your blog a few weeks ago as while conducting research for a website that I contribute to. The website aims to look at plethora of fields psychologists are contributing to today. The idea was originally to create an objective collection of resources for people interested in psychology but it has since grown into something much wider (the resources come together at http://www.p**************.net). Today, the project looks at areas of study ranging from neuropsychology to cultural psychology.
The entirety of this website has been covered by websites such as Forbes, Techi, and other reputable sources.
I think a guest blog post that illuminates the the advancement of our understanding the various contributions of psychology today would be interesting for your audience. If you're interested, I would love to write something for you and perhaps start a friendly dialogue. What do you think?
We think that this is indeed a timely offer, Mr or Ms L**** B******, for it arrived in the middle of a major research program here at Riddled Laboratories and Sheep-Drench Emporium.
Something is definitely wrong with psych methodology. In our perusal of the journals we have encountered more dead-ends than in Hampton Court Maze. The search for the key lost in a dark doorway has only provided us with splendidly detailed descriptions of the footpath under the streetlight.
Clearly it is time for a new paradigm, ideally one borrowed from a real science. At Riddled we have stepped up to the box and thought outside the plate. We have staged brain-storming sessions of such magnitude that the US Coast Guard have been giving each one its own name, starting with A and progressing into Old Church Slavonic and Devanagari characters.
Greenish Hugh came up with this model of psychological structure that looks suspiciously similar to patterns of HOX-gene expression in a Drosophilia embryo. But it is not all entomology all the time for the Riddled crew, and as you see, tigris is working on a theory of proximal development inspired by conjugation and plasmid exchange among Paramecia.
Topology sounded like a promising field to steal from. Personality typology has always been a popular application of psychology. AK suggests that each compactified Calabi-Yau manifold in 6-dimensional space -- distinguished by its unique signature of connectivity -- corresponds to a separate type of personality, each with its own way of integrating perceptual and cognitive input. With about 5.108 Calabi-Yau manifolds we are in no danger of running out soon.
The ability to evert a spherical surface without creating a crease or cusp has no end of applications for 're-education'! So far, alas, our attempts to implement the Morin Surface transformations upon actual brains have resulted in a mess of blood and what-have-you but no convincing ideological conversions.
This person has a lot of latticework that needs scalloping out. Does anyone know a good Operator?
I draw my own inspiration from Geomorphology. See how mental resources are deployed among cognitive demands, within multiple strata of sedimented experience that have been modified by metamorphosis and tectonics and later erosion of the more irreal strata! Ontology recapitulates orogeny, people.
Hopefully L**** B****** will find this helpful.
