|THE BLOODLESS BEING - PHYSIOGNOMICAL CHARACTER OF PINEAL (MELATONIN)|
|THE TIMELORD - NATURAL|
MASK OF MELATONIN
The Bloodless Being is associated with the pineal gland particularly the hormone melatonin - the effects on the personality and physical form of these physiognomical characters are detailed in that section of the blog. The natural mask of this character is the Timelord who have very low need for attention (or at least appear to). The Timelord seems to be able to make a little attention last a very long time - they often present the world with a face that indicates they do not 'need' your attention, this can be interpreted as aloofness, disdain and contempt but often it is not. Bloodless Beings are generally fairly slender with good complexions and youthful appearances these qualities give them a kind of elfin appearance and a kind of 'beauty' that is universally recognised. One of the side effects of the hormone that gives them this quality, i.e. melatonin is low body image (melatonin associated with occurence of anorexia nervosa) so often the compliments that they recieve based on their apparent beauty they in fact do not believe - this is the real explanation for their apparent aloofness/coldness and seeming lack of 'need' for attention. In reality though the Timelord is as susceptible to attention as anyone else, being more susceptible to positive attention than negative because of their position in the Metabolism of Time.
|THE DIRECTOR - DISTORTED|
MASK IN PINEAL CHARACTERS
UNDER POSITIVE ATTENTION
Positive attention distorts the mask to Director and negative attention to Gambler. In practical terms under the influence of positive attention which gets past the natural 'defences' outlined above they will become almost megalomaniacal and controlling, under negative attention they will 'run away' from the environment and attempt to seek a new area for nutrition. In day to day encounters you are more likely to see a Bloodless Being's mask distorting from Timelord to Director rather than to a Gambler.
|THE IGNORANT FOOL - PHYSIOGNOMICAL CHARACTER ASSOCIATED WITH PINEAL GLAND (SEROTONIN)|
|THE ANGEL - NATURAL MASK|
OF THE PINEAL (SEROTONIN)
The Ignorant Fool on the other hand is associated with the pineal gland in the form of the hormone serotonin. Serotonin and Melatonin oscillate inversely throughout the day, serotonin levels high when awake and conscious, melatonin levels rising during sleep. During the section on Ignorant Fool we discussed serotonin producing these chracters who are really intense and alert or 'present' - this serotonin's effect on raising and intensifying consciousness. Whereas the natural mask of the melatonin character produced the qualites of aloofness, coldness and distance - the natural mask of the Ignorant Fool, the Angel manifests intensity and focus - if the Timelord looks like it isn't interested in what you are saying the Angel looks like it is way too interested in what you are saying. Such intensity can often feel like the Angel is trying to extract every last drop of social nutrition from you - their conversations will zoom in on subjects likely to provoke strong reactions, like politics or the fundamental meaning of life or death. They are not good company for characters who want to chat about nothing.
|THE GAMBLER - PINEAL CHARACTERS |
UNDER NEGATIVE ATTENTION
Under the influence of positive attention, the Angel will transform into a Director and under negative, a Gambler but unlike the Timelord the Angel is more susceptible to negative attention than positive. It is more likely that an Angel will be driven away from a group (and therefore become a Gambler finding a new group) because of negative attention as their very active and intense approach can provoke retribution unlike the Timelord's stillness and aloofness. However under admiration and streams of compliments for whatever reason the Angel will turn into a Director, which in this distorted form is more likely to take the form of some kind of mad demagogue.
