The NPC meme
There's a popular new meme called NPC that attempts to explain why people think and act in such a robotic manner. NPC stands for "non player character", which are the characters in video games controlled by rudimentary AI, like the ghosts in Pac Man. Their range of output and behavior is severely limited.





The meme grew when a 2011 low sample "study" came to light that showed many people don't have an inner monologue. They simply react or feel to events like dogs without having to narrate them internally. My inner monologue, on the other hand, doesn't shut up. I mistakenly thought that everyone experiences the same phenomenon.

Quote:Not Everyone Conducts Inner Speech
Inner speech is frequent but not for everyone

Subject experienced themselves as innerly talking to themselves in 26% of all samples, but there were large individual differences: some subjects never experienced inner speech; other subjects experienced inner speech in as many as 75% of their samples. The median percentage across subjects was 20%.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/blo...ner-speech

The SJW term describes the beliefs, or software, that are put into people by the establishment. NPC describes the hardware that allows the beliefs to be installed on less-than-intelligent beings. When a NPC receives information that conflicts with their programming, they give the same outputs:

"Racist!"
"Nazi!"
"Rapist!"
"Homophobic!"
"Patriarchy!"

And here are some NPC memes:

RE: The NPC meme
This is a good thing, a needed next step in the meme war. Redpill/bluepill became synonymous with MRAs and then white nationalists. Then Pepe. This meme is more evolved and backed by science and historical evidence (Yuri Bezmenov). Taking an important and far-reaching concept then boiling it down so that it can be represented verbally by an acronym and visually by a simple drawing is the stuff that'll win hearts and minds.

The NPC concept is also good because it's not inherently divisive along race, gender or political lines (at least not on the surface). So it'll be harder for the tribalists and SJWs to attack.

I spent many years in denial of this fact, I think because I didn't want to deal with the inherent loneliness and isolation that comes along with it. This meme's popularization is somewhat vindicating to me.

RE: The NPC meme
Seeing people as NPC's was one of the first way I became really social and happy, most NPC's re fairly predictable, all about pressing the right buttons. And some aren't pre-programmed at all and have actually manged to re-program themselves, they're the ones worth hanging on to. If you were a mature kid, its usually the first time your exposed to this through happen chance and if you don't have the right home environment, you might not begin to process this in the right way and begin to believe something is wrong with you.

The idea we don't do this at all is insane, dehumanization? No. Its THE basic red pill for functioning as a successful human being.

The biggest NPC trait by a light year is the unwillingness to accept the fact that maybe just maybe you are wrong...in other words to have humility, to think not less of yourself, but to think of yourself less, and ruminate on the world at large.

RE: The NPC meme
When people talk of an inner monologue, do people mean a literal dialogue with yourself back and forth? Or more thinking/overthinking to yourself, which may come in the form of a dialogue, or visualisation of events, thinking "that's fucking bullshit, I'd kill those tossers" when they read about Muslim gangs etc? I get the latter, but not so much the former.

The idea of people having nothing is actually rather disturbing to me.

The NPC meme, will it last ?
But the true question is "Will the NPC meme last ?"


Tell them too much, they wouldn't understand; tell them what they know, they would yawn.
They have to move up by responding to challenges, not too easy not too hard, until they paused at what they always think is the end of the road for all time instead of a momentary break in an endless upward spiral

RE: The NPC meme
People who lack an inner monologue appear more confident. It's pure action and emotion that girls love. Being thoughtful and logical is often a social hindrance for men in my opinion. I think introversion gets confused with insecurity simply because most people are on a different wavelength.

Inner monologue is speaking to yourself about things that happen to you. They are verbal reactions that take place in your mind. They can also include planning of the future (e.g. reviewing in your mind the things you have to do over the course of the day).

Full-blown dialogues are just a form of the monologue that I would guess is more of an "overactive" inner monologue. I usually have dialogues to process complex events and ideas that later make their way into my writings. I could probably be called a "crazy" person because of how intense my inner monologue is, to the point that it is obtrusive to my sleep.

RE: The NPC meme
Just to say something related to this phenomena.

Stopping inner monologue on purpose is pretty much one of the chief tenets of many spiritual systems and philosophies throughout the world. When you can control your inner monologue at will, you become master of your mind, true alchemist of psyche.

OK, so I'm definitely a playable character then, ha — though my mind isn't perhaps as active as yours. Man, imagine not having any reactive thoughts? That's truly, truly bizarre. So bizarre, I can't get my head around it. There must be someone, just by law of averages (even taking into account the high IQ this forum attracts) here, that can somewhat explain what that is like.

I genuinely can't comprehend not having internal thoughts/self-dialogue about events/future things one is worried about... it's un-human to me. Hell, I have internal verbal reactions about things I read on here, or "should I?" questions about controversial positions or 'call out' posts. Even benign ones.

In "Harrison Bergeron" by K. Vonnegut, anyone with a certain level of intelligence is required by law to wear an earpiece that generates loud distracting noises to prevent them from thinking too much.

RE: The NPC meme
I think we live in a time that facilitates this phenomenon. There is so much man-made stimuli in the day-to-day lives of the average human in today's post-industrial societies, that a lot of people find little to no need to be creative as a pastime or to seek purpose. Mankind has created synthetic world of experience outside of mother nature that would take many lifetimes to fully conquer. Because of that, we have millions of people running on auto-pilot. They check their phone, contribute to and consume their social media, drink a latte, listen to music and podcasts with their earbuds in, sit in the cubicle, watch some streaming videos, fly to a resort for their annual PTO, etc. We live in a sterile world here that teaches us to avoid personal human interaction and instead live vicariously through through all this digital-age shit. It's freaky if you sit back and think about it.

At the end of the day if you stay off of the web and just talk to people and try to live in the moment as much as possible you'll realize things aren't so bad though.

RE: The NPC meme
Still can't believe there are people without an inner monologue. I'm hesitant to immediately assign people without one to the sheepish NPC like thinking but I wonder if there is a direct correlation. Surely IQ and other factors must matter as well. I feel like mine is very active, for as long as I can remember I've been getting lost in thought going over things using it. I can only sit with a clean mind very briefly before it kicks up again either.

I do like the NPC meme but I'm still not exactly sure how it's supposed to be used. I'm pretty sure the masses are supposed to be the NPCs but are the people they watch, the talking heads, are they supposed to be NPCs as well? Or the programmers telling them how to think? I think the meme needs a little more refinement to be it's most potent. It's very weird how twitter is already all over censoring this. Could really have something here.

In that situation, a person with an inner monologue may experience a symphony of emotion running gamut from excitement to trepidation, have a strong desire to share hopes/dreams, make self vulnerable, etc., "Does s/he really like me?.. Will they like and understand me for who I am, deep down..." Or even "What does this person liking me mean for my future and that of humanity?" or something to that effect.

An NPC in that situation reacts to stimuli based on reward-seeking, thinking purely in terms of getting what they want. Sort of like an animal capable of solving complex problems.

Note this distinction is not a binary, black/white one. It is a spectrum. I'm sure most people have some inner voice, it's just a matter of how loud, articulate and constant.
