What is Academic Envy?

The act of envy is a highly curious thing to those of us who have never experienced envy, nor jealousy. To us, the big question is, precisely, what is envy? People talk a lot about envy, but no one ever says what it is. Dictionaries have numerous words that describe envy as an evil behavior, but still the dictionaries do not explain what envy is. Neither science, nor philosophy, nor anyone else has ever said what envy is, their not so much as being able to describe what any emotion is.

Religions also say that envy is evil, but no religion ever describes what envy is. Romans 1:21-31 just makes the question of envy worse: "...Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:" According to Paul (Saul), envy is an assured path southward for the soul. Ah, but, why then are Christians envious? Why are Christian academicians envious? Is there not a huge contradiction there?

The more that we search for answers, the worse the problem becomes: exponential.

Within The Works of Hsuntze, Christian missionary and Oxford University sinology department employee Homer Dubs Ph.D. wrote "Man originally is envious and naturally hates others." Within Xunzi Complete Works - VOLUME I, sinology department employee John Knoblock (Christian) wrote "Humans are born with feelings of envy and hatred". The 'translations' were of the five words '生而有疾惡'. The original words infer 'born while have (ji) (e)'. does not imply "envy", and does not mean "hate", but it is universal that academicians do claim the words to mean envy and hate. Dubs and Knoblock were both academicians. Both lied. Neither could read Chinese. Both purposefully hated-on Confucian era ideals. Both exhibited academic envy. Both were Christian.

The source of the quotes is from the first paragraph of the 23rd book of Xunzi that is titled 性惡, and is predominately mistranslated as Human Nature is Evil. 性惡 is two words. Only two words. Human Nature is Evil is four words. Academicians are unable to read two words, and the academicians are also unable to count to two.

Academicians envy Dubs and Knoblock, but my question is to ask ***why???***. Why would anyone envy a person who has no skills, no level intelligence, no learning, and who cannot count to two?

Many children only know of envy from the victim's point of view. Children whose grades were too high, children who won state and national awards and medals, children with too-high IQs, children with too much money, children who were more beautiful than other children, the list is long, and each child intensely suffered the effect of what academic Machiavellianism, narcissism, psychopathy, sadism, and envy cause, but still no one can explain what envy is, nor how it spawns.

While continuing to search for answers, and finding none within any writing throughout history, the next step was to observe the mannerisms of different types of organisms that exhibit the symptoms of envy. Dogs 'envy' other dogs' food and doghouses, but no dog is intelligent enough to build its own doghouse. Monkeys 'envy' other monkeys' bananas, but no monkey is intelligent enough to plant its own banana tree. Aha! And there, within the animal kingdom, is found numerous species that share similarities of behaviors, including the normal human. Is not academic envy the relative same as a monkey's envy? Academicians want other academicians' bananas, but no academician is intelligent enough to plant its own banana tree. Academia is a closed cult of memorizing words, sans skills, and thus, the envy would only relate to wanting academic things. Monkeys do not envy human intelligence, and academicians do not envy any intelligence that exceeds what an academician is able to comprehend.

When further observing how academicians interpret ancient Chinese words, the academicians' definitions of the words directly reflected the academicians' own intellectual processes. Disturbingly, the processes mirror those within the animal kingdom, which explains why academicians cannot comprehend multi-conceptual words, nor describe what any of their barks words mean, nor comprehend the academicians' own continuous contradictions. I would explain the central difference between animals and real humans, but, no, the academicians would merely memorize the words and then claim that they discovered the thing on their own.

To avoid being the victim of academic envy, one choice is to always pretend to be stupid, always purposefully score low on IQ tests, always purposefully score low on class tests, never speak of anything that academicians cannot comprehend (which is almost everything), never let the academicians know that your income is many times higher than theirs, and just generally always pretend to be so extremely mediocre that you are not so much as important enough to be noticed. The better choice, is to simply not participate in anything academic at all.

Academic Envy

Academia is a closed system, a cult of which worships itself as the sole measure of all things good, and like all other cults, academicians hate-on everyone who does not believe in the cult. I had originally written a lengthy article about academic envy, but, since the topic dwells so deeply within negative topics, I had decided to not finish the article. However, since François-Guillaume Ménageot's painting "Envy Plucking the Wings of Fame" was so excellent, I decided that his art deserved to be made better known, and thus, the reason for this brief article.

Once every few hundred years, a man's writings become a record of the chasm between human intelligence and tiny academicians.

Confucius: 'Zi [Confucius] say: ...Junzi bosom fairness, tiny people bosom favoritism.' (word-per-word draft translation of 里仁 Li Ren - Inner Benevolence #11)).

Xunzi: 'Junzi him learning, enter ear, attach heart, spread four limbs, body move calm. Hold-level while speak, fluid while move, alone able use be standard follow. Tiny person him learning, enter ear, come-out mouth...' (word-per-word draft translation of Xunzi Book - Encourage Learning #5)

Leonardo da Vinci: "I know that many will say that this work is useless, and these are they of whom Demetrius said that he recked no more of the breath which made the words proceed from their mouth, than of the wind which proceeded from their body, — men who seek solely after riches and bodily satisfaction, men entirely denuded of that wisdom which is the food and verily the wealth of the soul; because insomuch as the soul is of greater value than the body, so much greater are the riches of the soul than those of the body. And often when I see one of these take this work in his hand, I wonder whether, like a monkey, he will not smell it and ask me if it is something to eat." (Leonardo da Vinci Thoughts on Art and Life #10, translation by Maurice Baring)

Leonardo was a hoot!! A skilled hoot!!

Skill of Mind

"Similar to all skills of hand, there is a similar methodology of performing mental actions that choose a thing as good, and to present to the mind that which is beautiful, which illustrates to the mind what is good, and that the whole of the thought is to give distinction of that thing, to bring to light the fulfillment of recognizing what is good." (from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics in Aristotelian Ethics)

Intelligent people exert the self-effort to self-learn, and to achieve a skill within the individual's topic of interest. The intelligent person's only scale of evaluating one's own quality of skill, is oneself.

Rembrandt was masterfully skilled. Unskilled painters attempted to mimic Rembrandt's style. No mimicker ever achieved a similar skill as Rembrandt's, because, no mimicker had exerted the self-effort to self-learn and to self-achieve the skill of painting.

Mimicking another person's skill cannot enable the mimicker to achieve the skill.

Going to a school, and copying-mimicking what other people have written, cannot enable the person to become skilled, nor talented. Measuring one's skills and talents by what other people do, is not an act of intelligence.

Monkey see monkey do. People see Hollywood movies, people dress and behave as how the characters dressed and behaved in the Hollywood movies. People see protests, people join protests. People see global warming news, people say global warming. People see tattoos, people get tattoos. Monkey see, monkey do.

Intelligent people choose their clothing by what fits best, feels best, looks best, cleans best, and best fits the individual's own personal tastes. Intelligent people do not join herds. Intelligent people think for themselves. Intelligent people do not believe in fake news. Intelligent people see what other people do, then pause, analyze, and self-learn what not to do.

"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." - Mark Twain

Academicians copy-mimic what other people have said and written. Without talents, and without skills, the academicians truly believe that memorizing herd-words somehow makes the academicians skilled within topics that they themselves have no firsthand experience with. If a man has no skill, then why would anyone envy the man? Nevertheless, academicians do indeed envy other academicians, regardless of the fact that none of the envied academicians have skills.

Alogicus Canatim Sapientes Academicians Mimic Animals

Dogs 'envy' other dogs' doghouses, but no dog is intelligent enough to build their own doghouse.

Monkeys 'envy' other monkeys' bananas, but no monkey is intelligent enough to plant their own banana tree.

Academicians envy other academicians' houses and bananas, but no academician is intelligent enough to build their own university, nor to plant their own banana tree.

Cattle are herded into herds. Academicians are herded into herds.

Dogs have never invented anything new. Academicians have never invented anything new.

Dogs cannot describe what their bark means. Academicians cannot describe what their words mean.

Academicians write dictionaries and religious books that say that envy is evil. Academicians admit that they themselves exhibit envy. Academicians claim that they are intelligent.

To envy, is the expressed nature of sub-human intelligence. Academicians envy.

Observe Academic Envy

Dogs gather into packs, bark wildly, snarl, show their teeth, and will attack anything that is easy prey.

At protests, academicians gather into packs, bark wildly, snarl, show their teeth, and will attack anything that is easy prey.

"Dogs bark and have no self-control over their emotional responses. Canatim sapientes bark and have no self-control over their emotional responses." (from Care About Other People).

The mass news media has many reports of protests on university campuses. The protests are by the academicians themselves. Observe that the symptoms of canatim sapientes are obvious within all of academia.

May 4, 1970, academicians at Kent State University protested against the Vietnam war. The Ohio National Guard shot and killed four of the students, while nine others were injured. The protests paused. When the tree falls, the monkeys scatter. The academicians behaved similarly as do dogs and monkeys, and today the academicians continue to behave similarly.

Darwinian evolution, the academic search for missing links, is stupid: the missing links are those who still retain animal behaviors; the academicians themselves.

The only person who is able to envy an academician, is an academician.


"Letters of a Traveller"... beautiful music, Icelandic cello... as the words of Kong and Xun glow of beauty when accompanied with a heart that has lived what the words point to, so does Chopin become beautiful when spoken with warmths of heart upon strings.

The act of envy is spoken of in the ancient Chinese texts... described... no academician understands... no academician can know what he himself is unable to mentally comprehend, nor what the academician is physically doing. Academic envy is not merely a bad behavior, but rather, it is the inferior nature of the unevolved beast.
