  •  There is no cure for a brain stem that is (9+ / 0-)

    disconnected from the thinking portion. I suspect it happens either pre-natally or during delivery as a result of not enough oxygen getting to the brain. The worst cases result in cerebral palsy. Lees serious effects don't show up for a couple of years as cognitive and emotional functions don't mesh.
    We end up with very bright individuals. Who knows but their cognitive functions aren't enhanced by not having to be conscious of their effect on other people. Their intellect can be as single-minded as a mosquito going after warm blood.
    They have no empathy for other people probably because they don't even have any empathy for themselves.
    We should probably worry less about robots behaving like humans than about robotic humans.

    •  I think if researchers looked deeply enough (4+ / 0-)

      they would also find that too many hours spent watching Fux Noise, or listening to GOP talking heads like Rush and Beck also have the same result: a gradual disconnection from the thinking portion of the brain, replacing thinking instead with Pavlovian responses inculcated to reflexively agree with the carefully crafted bushwah promulgated by GOP/T "wordsmiths" like Lank Fruntz.

      In other words, GOP-a-ganda

      America's LAST HOPE: vote the GOP OUT in 2014 elections. MAKE them LOSE the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate. Democrats move America forward - Republicans take us backward and are KILLING OUR NATION!

      •  FOXITIS Disease (4+ / 0-)

        FOXITIS is a disease that requires a daily injection of hate & misinformation... without, they start banging the head against a cement wall......screaming Benghazi....

        FOXITIS is probably incurable because the folks with this chronic condition want to be infected... they are willing participants that want & need the crapola the drama queens on FOX offer.... little do they understand, however, that the folks, FOX demeans & belittles with their rants, are really themselves, their own viewers...

        Good thing we have Obamacare with pre existing.....

    •  I would argue (0+ / 0-)

      That cerebral palsy is the best-case scenario.  There is no treatment for lack of empathy.
