A Philosophical Journey – Discovering the Mystery of Creation in the Mind – a memoir; #9: The Narrative

Filed under: Language, Summary of Philosophy

I concluded that, in order for the newly evolved hominid entity of group authority to coordinate group behavior, a new form of communication evolved in which all group members had to be constantly gesturing to each other in order to “stay on the same page,” similar to the mutual interactions with constant small adjustments of …

The Innovation of Language at the Dawn of Creation 6M yrs Ago

Filed under: Dominance and Submission, Evolution of Emotion, Language | 2 Comments

By means of the transformation rendered by by selection inclusion between dominance and submission mentalities, a new kind of organism emerged comprised of twenty or thirty individuals made up of four to seven families.

How Can Marxism & Capitalism Help Us Understand the Ascension of Individual Dominance in Apes Into the Entity of Authority in Hominids?

Filed under: Evolution of Emotion, Evolutionary psychology, Group Selection, Myth, Self domestication

The premise in this blog is that, the event that initiated our hominid biological family was the ascendance of the will of individual apes to dominate each other into the entity of group justice in small monogamous hominid bands of 20-30 individuals.

STRONG GROUP SELECTION, LANGUAGE, AND BIPEDALITY

Filed under: God, Group Selection, Language, Sexual Selection | 6 Comments

Let’s accept the premise, without understanding it exactly, that, by a mechanism similar to sexual selection, the dominance mentalities of 20-30 monogamously mated hominids began to be selected at the level of their group to select obedience to the essence of the  Ten Commandments in all of their submissive mentalities.  In addition to obedience to  …

AN EVOLUTIONARY INNOVATION

Filed under: God, Group Selection | 3 Comments

PREMISE: The cause of the EXPLOSION OF HOMINID SPECIES IN THE FACE OF THE DECLINE OF APES, due to deteriorating climates 6 million years ago, WAS A MAJOR EVOLUTIONARY INNOVATION. It would logically follow that: 1. The single most important characteristic that identifies an ape as a hominid – BIPEDALISM –  would be central to …
