4. The Evolutionary Highway

4. The Evolutionary Highway

In modern society it is difficult to comprehend what kind of behaviour is good in people and what is bad. What is good for some is bad for others, and any event may be viewed by different people as either good or bad. Therefore the variants ‘good-bad’ for researching human biology are not applicable, at the level of individual people. But if as a unit of measurement we take the population of a human community, there is a criterion: the success of that population. If a population is successful then we can say what is good or bad for it.

Human populations compete in a struggle for resources, including territorial. If a population is to be successful it needs to have those qualities that would enable it to resolve that task. In the modern world, where there is the division of labour, defining these qualities is difficult because to achieve victory very many qualities are needed. Therefore for the integrity of the experiment it is better to turn to the recent past, when this conflict involved quite a narrow circle of warriors.

These warriors need health, physical strength, intellect and self-control. By intellect here we mean the ability to set and solve tasks in the struggle for external resources, and not the ability to adapt, not the ability to feed off their fellow tribe members.

3. Sociobiology in under 1000 Words

3. Sociobiology in under 1000 Words

Without tools it is difficult to work. If you don’t have the right screwdriver, a screw can take a long, long time to secure tightly and correctly, with curses and no little blood. Our basic tool here is terminology.

Wilson’s book Sociobiology is 700 large-format pages long. Irenaus Eibl-Eibesfeldt’s Ethology is 900 normal-sized pages long, with a small typeface. Darwin is shorter, but the language is more difficult.

They contain much that is superfluous to our needs. True, there are many interesting facts and all conclusions are backed up by solid evidence. But for an understanding of modern man’s programs this evidence is not needed. To understand the issue we don’t need to know hundreds of cases of interaction, reflexes and terms that these books use. We don’t need to know, for instance, that modern Darwinism goes by the name of ‘The Synthetic Theory of Evolution’. Especially as this is too long.

2. The World of Conflicting Groups

2. The World of Conflicting Groups

Most attempts to consider male-female relations have been made without accounting for the factors that have formed modern humanity. The most important factor that has usually been ignored is the existence in the world of conflicting groups. As groups we mean clan, tribe, nation. Man is a top predator, and the higher the place in the hierarchy of predators, the harsher is the interspecies competition between them. Competition takes place within the clan for the female, and between families for territory, and the females within the clan make the males fight for their choice of female. The literature today does not for some reason pay full attention to these clear facts of competition for resources. After all, those of us alive today are the heirs of the victors.

 Man, woman, love.

Male-female relations.

People have been observing these relations longer than they have been writing their own history, and these relations have always seemed complicated. All the time we hear that a woman is unknowable, she is irrational, she is unpredictable, and love is a mystery.

But what is interesting is that there is indeed a plethora of complicated things in the world, for instance, space stations, microwave ovens and micro-processors that contain millions of transistors,.

How does this work?
