WHY AND HOW PILPUL FUNCTIONS AS A MEANS OF DECEPTION.
—“(((They))) win by creating false dichotomies; the use of language is very important.”—Mirjana BiliÄ
Their technique of Pilpul: They use an element of truth to create a false dichotomy and therefore frame the question by suggestion, and obscure the solution due to anchoring.
We are always vulnerable to anchoring.
Because we are vulnerable to anchoring we are vulnerable to framing.
Because we are vulnerable to framing we are vulnerable to suggestion and obscurantism.
Because we are vulnerable to suggestion and obscurantism we are vulnerable to influence.
If we are provided for incentive to justify that influence we can be controlled – by BLOCKING our OPPORTUNITY and MOTIVATION for seeking truth.
The three abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) all produce recursive ignorance cue to BLOCKING our search for truth.
This is how PILPUL is used to deceive, and why math, logic, science, economics, law and testimonial truth are such an important defense.
A lie (incentive), a half truth, a False dichotomy (choice).
Low trust people simply dont’ go beyond the tangible. High trust people do. Our asset of high trust in constructing the commons which produce such outsized returns compared to other peoples. But our trust( suspension of disbelief), and vulnerability to anchoring, suggestion, and obscurantism make our ordinary folk easily deceived, manipulated, controlled, and preyed upon.
