    It is ignorant rubbish to say that people insisted the earth was flat 300 years ago. People in Europe have known it was spherical since the time of Eratosthenes, who measured its circumference in about 300BC. Quoting material with that sort of junk in it is a waste of everybody's time.

    If you are going to make a case that new scientific findings have historically had trouble gaining acceptance, at least do your homework and produce real examples, not this lazy tosh.

    Yep...perhaps it's not so much as mental communication as being on the same "wavelength" (empathy). This is why some couples can answer a question before it is asked.

    Ah, the usual narcissist vs. empath, us. vs. them, predator vs. prey rubbish.

    Ive met narcissists who were empaths, and empaths who were narcissists.
    And I've also met many neutral, ordinary folk, who were just bad people.

    Ive met prey-type people who were selfish and apathetic, and predator-type folk who wanted to help the planet.

    Let me remind you that "empathy" is not in any way representative of "us vs. them", quite the opposite is true. It defines a "shared emotional response".

    Could have fooled me. Some of these so called "empaths" demonize narcissists and have no empathy for their condition.
    For example, you could be a mild, moderate or even harmless narcissist, and these so called "empaths" will demonize you and lump you in the same boat as their cold heartless abusive boyfriend who beats them and cheats on them with 20 different women.
    Plus, half of these empaths seems like they are narcissists themselves.

    Look up the term Mirror Neuron and how it relates to empathy. Seems to me your understanding of the term Empathy is somewhat lacking in depth.

    Then don't give it properties which it does not possess or assign it to people who are unable to "mirror" (experience) another's emotions.

    Psychopaths lack the mirror function, this is why they are able to divorce themselves from the person and treat the victim as an object.

    Autistic persons are just unable to mirror and relate to normal everyday bahaviors, but sometimes can establish effective communication through a computer.

    We were talking about narcissists not psychopaths.

    Second psychopaths aren't even a real thing, its something made up by hollywood.
    Some of them don't lack the mirror function, its just that its worn out or only works in some cases.
    Hollywood is actually causing psychopaths to happen, because when you watch so many movies it overworks your mirror function and you start to lose interest in your mirror functions.

    Well, you cannot lose interest in your mirror function, it is how your brain functions and how you relate to reality. But it is true that the mirror function can be conditioned.

    Narcissists are often a form of psychopath, albeit a mild form. But it can be said that all psychopaths are narcissists, in an extreme form. Their mirror function is not just mainly self-directed, it is only and exclusively self-directed. This is why psychopaths treat their victims as objects; "It rubs the lotion on its skin" (from the movie Silence of the Lambs).

    Trump is an example of a narcissist.
    The novel, Silence of the Lambs describes two true psychopaths; Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill, and in the movie Silence of the Lambs both are wonderfully crafted psychopaths with entirely different personalities.

    and "Buffalo Bill";

    IMO, it is one the all time great horror films ever made, and it did win Anthony Hopkins an Academy award.
