I am altering this thread and sticking it. I'd prefer it if people didn't comment, but added other good videos for rank beginners. Stuff on inner game, how seduction really works, how to get laid, and female psychology and management. I'd also prefer it if it was mostly guys who know what they are talking about posted and they invest a little time in explaining the video and it's point. I am going to be watching this and may edit or remove posts that are off topic. I want this to be a great set of, "You are new", stuff only.
And please don 't post to thank us for the videos or say they are great. Watch and learn.

Unfortunately, Brent Smith changed most of his excellent videos to private view and you have to be a paid member of his business to see them these days. I am editing this thread to remove posts that had his videos in them. I am leaving up a bit of what I wrote for the first two, but I edited out the parts that refer to the videos, because it is good rookie advice without the videos.

If you are new to the Seduction Community and don't know where to begin, begin with this. Realize that every last thing you know is wrong. You have been programmed to do a bunch of shit that won't make you happy or free, and they sold this BS to you with the promise of happiness and freedom if you did things the way you were told. Understand that cultures program people and cultures compete with other cultures and the strongest ones win. Not the culture that makes its members the most happy, the culture that drives out the other cultures. That means all the successful cultures program you to make your culture successful, not to make you happy, successful, and fulfilled. You are just a cell in a creature called your culture, doing what the culture programmed you to do as part of its evolved survival strategy.
You can step outside this. That is what is meant here when we say leave the Matrix. The Matrix is that set of common assumptions and rules that guide your and everyone else's actions. Leaving the Matrix is nothing more than stepping off the merry go round your culture has programmed you to ride and starting to do what is good for yourself; what will make you happy, successful, and fulfilled.
As Brent said elsewhere, "Indifference is the crucial difference." The best way to deprogram yourself is to quit worrying. Literally become indifferent to the demands culture makes and what it told you that you should be doing, and start doing what you want to do and being who you want to be.
Stop being unhappy and start being happy. Both are states of mind. You can change your mind. It is a part of you, just like your hand, you can make it do what you want. You control it, it does not control you. Just as you can decide to put your hand in your pocket or to pick up a sandwich and eat it, you can decide if your mind will make you unhappy or happy. It is up to you. You don't know this because this knowledge is good for you, but stops you from serving your culture, so you were never taught this.
Imagine for a moment you are Paul McCartney and it is 1966. You are the coolest guy on earth. When you are on stage hot young women write their name & phone number on their panties and throw them at you all the time. Do you actually care what any one person thinks about you or what you say? No. You are polite and nice to people and treat them well, but you do not need anything from anyone. That is the behavior of someone who is at the top of the pyramid. Humans are evolved to live in a hierarchy. The further up the pyramid you appear to be, the hotter the women who will want to fuck you. The further up the pyramid you are, the more cool your demeanor becomes. Coolness is a status marker. This is what Brent meant about indifference. One of our best posters, The Thin Man, refined it and said one should adapt a pose of amused indifference. That is the best description of Cool ever.
Hot girls chase cool guys. Uncool guys chase hot girls.
Realize that women decide quickly if they want to fuck you. If the answer is yes, they make it easy for you and will often push the matter forward themselves if you don't pick up on their intent. If the answer is no, nothing works to seduce them, they will only interact with you so far as you are useful to them. They will let you entertain them, do stuff for them, and buy them stuff, but they won't fuck you.
You can choose who you want to be.
Be cool and prosper.
