Paypal and Payoneer no longer work in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, Buymeacoffe and ComicAd (the ad banners here).
The only tip jar I have left is Boosty. It accepts Paypal, all cards, any currency, then it converts it into rubles and sends to me. Boosty works the same way as Patreon + accepts one-time donations like Ko-fi and allows selling ebooks.

The reason why we don't see dozens of Jans running wild and murdering people on a whim is because sociopaths have a damn good system for educating their kids. Specific training Rita speaks about creates a subpersonality* that can tame and control the sociopaths' violent nature turning them into guardians, leaders, and keepers of ancient knowledge (remember, they are the only ones who can master high level psi-profiles - the most valuable ones). What makes Rita so emotional here is that sometimes the controlling subpersonality fails. Like today when she nearly killed her own brother and did enjoy torturing him. She is afraid she will become like Jan one day, or her child will. She sees her family's brain type as a kind of curse, despite all its benefits.

* A subpersonality is, in transpersonal psychology, a personality mode that kicks in (appears on a temporary basis) to allow a person to cope with certain types of psychosocial situations. Subpersonalities are able to perceive consciousness as something separate from themselves. The average person has about a dozen subpersonalities.


Poor girl. I keep thinking they should tell them this younger, then I think telling them younger might be even worse.

And Tim is great and acting so much like himself here.

Jan was told this at a much younger age and it didn't do him any good. Maybe even made his superiority complex worse. So Lara decided to wait a few more years for it with her daughter.
