In response to my dear friend Arun’s statement on territories of comfort…..
Dude, in the first paragraph you’ve referred to me as the odd one and it was not only me it was everyone among them. In fact, I wasn’t comfortable mentioning the live example considering a few things in my mind, here again I go against what I think, as I mentioned about the protagonist himself / herself turning out to be antagonist being bound to a specific criteria.
The discussion of theory of evolution and territories of comfort was O.K but the entire discussion does not relate to what was mentioned earlier. I think the theory of ‘territories of comfort’ may be well suited to a discussion on competition, but the aforementioned article discussed emotions.
I have categorically pointed out a few things there about categorization and the process that leads to the protagonist becoming an antagonist. Here, I give a simple example to give a better understanding of my statements. There are two groups A and B [lets consider both are of same sex]. Usually the normal tendency of gelling with other colleagues would happen only amongst the cadres, which is again mostly based on the categorization theory1 and very minimally the true care. I basically think the theory of evolution2 is the core cause of the cadre mechanism. I hope everyone agrees.
The key point of discussion is a few of cadre A might / might not get in real / true care with a few of cadre B, but are restricted not to show it out even though they want to because of the categorization theory1. I would term this a black and white theory of human psyche [as I left out the other darker sides in my earlier discussion], I’d only like to talk about the two kinds of dilemma which exist in deciding the individual’s way of living. Either to be with the cadre or to come out of it! The Black side is the one that tends to show the whiteness that is virtually presented without the confrontation, though the white side is focusing somewhere. The white side is the one with the pure idea of emphasizing a person's capacity for self-realization through reason getting to the other side by turning black.
And I was wondering about the extrapolation of the animal theory with humans. This is not about the physical or mental strength one has over the above and dominating because of that. The key point [in terms of cadre], an individual of cadre A wants to gel with an individual of cadre B but couldn’t do it because the rest of his colleagues would consider this as a defection to the other side and to avoid that, the individual cadre A who doesn’t want to gel with the rest of the cadre A is forced to do so, thus going against the odds of what really was his wish. I don’t understand where the chances of getting a girl comes from3.
I completely agree with the theory of territory of comfort3 but it’s nowhere related to the content of my article1.
