I was undecided whether I wanted to write this as a journal or as a deviation.  I guess it doesn't really matter.

You know what I just realized?

I just realized that I don't believe I have any expectation of compassion from anyone.  Whatsoever.  Ever.

And I think around half our population is running on the same lack of expectations.  If you're not groveling for the smallest hint of compassion our society has to offer you get none.

That's kind of a soul-crushing epiphany.

The more so because of how brutally true it is.

It's a pun on the word valence and the word "unbalanced."

Valence means "power", very roughly (valence shells, in physics, are referring to power levels of electrons).

First, it refers to my rejection of the just-so theory of valence shells in physics.  Second, it refers to the fact that I created this account as a politics-driven account, and it is an acknowledgment of the fact that as such, my commentary would be from a particular political perspective (unbalanced).

There are other potential meanings that can be drawn, surprisingly accurately - my rejection of power as a legitimate goal for myself - but those two were the primary intentions behind the creation of the username.

I didn't want to seem like I was bragging or anything so I figured I'd just tell you here in case you were curious. I scored pretty high on my IQ test as a child too. They wouldn't tell me the numbers but they said it was "exceptionally well" and then when I got into high school I took the adult version of the test and scored 145. There are a few reasons I didn't get higher scores than I did... the one I took in high school was a formal test but by that time I was not doing well in advanced math and have a slight dyslexia for numbers in particular. So like 21x5 I might read as 12x5 and thus give the wrong answer.

Dyscalculia can be an issue.  I recommend you look into racetams - anecdotal evidence from LessWrong's users suggests it may help dyslexia, and it's possible it could be beneficial in dealing with dyscalculia as well.
