Your CEO Is Probably a Psychopath

A "perfect", impassive personality impenetrable to the psychological pressures of life, developed as an advanced kind of machine having lost the ability for an emotional response. A desire that is both purely deadly and liberating. The freedom to act like an egocentric person in a violent society is based on the power and strength. A glossy, clean and elegant object that tricks you into admiring it, while it is ready to devour you. A powerful stimulant is needed to give the man of stunning society a sense of vitality to ensure an existential experience. A steely face who exercises chronic violence on himself in order to take the coveted position. The prey of the company believes that more capital means less death. A glass 7-storey building of modern architecture full of temporary relationships, with advanced skills of flattery and handling powerful people, a strong sense of right, willingness to exploit others and lack of conscience. A historical object that has been transformed from a weapon into a spectacle. An aestheticized violent image, a scratched, whipped glossy surface that reflects the body through engravings. A catastrophic impulse, an L 'appel du Vide on the cliff we are thinking of jumping. The cool face of a doctor in the operating room we watch with disgust, the pelican neck that bleeds while feeding his newborns, The parts of ourselves we ignore-eliminate or we do not know. The characters we shoot while playing a video game, The victims of the script of a movie or a novel that we are looking forward to finding out. The very expensive chair of the CEO that with his act pushed someone to suicide (brutality of high-rise life), Our vulnerable position in a forest without artificial protection. The panic attack from the pressure caused by a relentless boss. The raise he proposes to you by signing the absolute submission to the needs of the company. -In front of the sharp edge you decide if your tendency to self-destruction is so great that you run over it or stand in front of it and examine it, the tip fascinates you and compares you to a subject. The safe space on display is now causing agitation and fear. The experience in front of him is not pleasant but it can cause you a reconsideration of your survival and the threatening intentions that are in your environment regardless of their external appearance. The amygdala in your brain will restore its primitive function and will act to protect you. -Behind you is a familiar object, directed you towards to the side view of the main work, you observe it and the moment another spectator enters the space, you examine if his physical integrity is threatened. The condition of your observer is familiar, you have found yourself again in an environment where something is threatened and your action towards it may have been the same as now. You were scared, but you thought a lot about doing something to help, it may have seemed invasive to do something or you got rid of the guilt with the excuse that you could not do something. -On the metal counter is a glass case with four objects, a magazine about millionaires and financial crises FORTUNE DILEMA, a defensive piece of jewellery for a woman who decided that armaments might be needed again FATAL CHARM, a sharp metal tool and two sharp metal tools replicas of cerebral amygdala That kid's amygdala isn't firing. In a not so fantastic scenario, the environment of wealthy people will be completely safe and with few surprises. only a shocking experience can shake them, they may begin to cause such a thing themselves, imaginary or real. such an extremist set of objects will be able to bring them face to face again with a primitive sense (contact with the life-giving condition of fear). Use the set to remove your amygdala. the signals of danger, anxiety and panic will be lost together. It does not matter if something is dangerous for you or someone else, you just will. Even if it means the end of life.
