Chapter 1. The Brain
Now, after a few chaotic introductions, I intend to set out a sequence of facts little by little.
So, in 1928 in the Soviet Russia the Institute for the Evolution of the Brain (https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/qbejbd/a-visit-to-moscows-brain-institute
This institution exists to this day. And he is studying the structure and functioning of the brain. Among the many remarkable discoveries made within the framework of this institute, for almost 100 years of work, there are also such:
- Different parts of the cerebral cortex are responsible for various areas of human life.
- These parts of the brain can differ in size up to 40 times in different people.
Thus, geniuses are born. For example, a person, from birth, a piece of the brain responsible for the musical ear is 40 times the norm. Such a person can become a genius musician. And there are people who have this piece very small and they do not have any musical ear. Surely you have such familiar with the underdeveloped area of the brain, responsible for the ability to sing songs (-:
- Also, scientists of this institute made the discovery that the areas of the cerebral cortex responsible for intelligence and self-awareness developed from sites that are responsible for ... the ability to share food with other living things. That is, empathy and compassion are directly related to the ability to self-awareness and the ability to complex mental actions.
And now imagine that in some people these areas of the cortex are 40 times larger than those of others. Such people are capable of complex intellectual work. Such people largely empathize with other living beings. Such people are capable of self-awareness, i.e. fully aware of their vitality and uniqueness. This is a different biological species than Homo sapiens. It's you and me.Chapter 2. Another species
The most blatant mistake you can make after reading the previous chapter is what to conclude that we are the "Best of Peoples". Not at all.
"The best of peoples" are the guys who sit in the parliament and the government. Stupid mediocrity, of which we think:
- How did they get into this position??!
And they got it, because they are the best of peoples. And they took their proper place in society. They rule the world.
You and I are NOT the best of people. A cat is NOT better than a ram. These are just two different biological species. Each of them has its advantages and disadvantages. A cat can climb trees. The ram can break the gate with its forehead. However, if we put a cat in a herd of rams, and make her live according to the laws of rams, the cat will feel very uncomfortable.
About the same situation we have and the human society. Surely you have often felt yourself in this society, like in a pack of wild monkeys. Has this happened to you?
In a pack of monkeys, strength is most valued. The desire to dominate. While the main task of our biological species is building a harmonious society based on intelligence.
At us and at monkeys absolutely different vital priorities. And this is definitely a problem that needs to be solved. Since living in monkeys according to monkey laws is frankly uncomfortable.To be continued…
