Many of us are also at war with members of our own species.
How is it that we are, at one and the same time, the smartest of species when it comes to knowledge and the stupidest of species when it comes to behaviour? Just as a computer is only as capable as its programming, the human mind is dependent not just on the accuracy of the information it has to work with but also the integrity of the conceptual framework with which it seeks to associate and draw conclusions from that information.
Maybe some of what we "know" is wrong?
Is it possible that our self-destructive behaviour can be traced back to what Lipton calls the "Four Myth-Perceptions of the Apocalypse"? Personally, I like to think of this trend as an attempt to avoid considering the importance of relationship.
Reductionism denies the importance of the relationship of parts in a functioning whole. Mechanism denies organic interrelatedness, trying to replace it with the simple inflexible workings of a machine. And materialism looks at things but not at their relationship to each other.
While there are advantages to breaking things down into their constituent parts, making analogies between living things and machines if only because we can make more effective machines by copying the superior technology of nature and considering forms of matter in isolation, each of these approaches falls far short of the apprehension of reality we can achieve when we take an holistic approach.
And the denial at the heart of materialism can no longer be maintained now that we know that, when we look at the subatomic structure of matter, there is nothing there but relationship. One of the major effects of this "myth-perception" on society is the tendency to over-emphasise the material aspects of our relationships to each other.
Is it about whether we communicate with each other in a loving way or is it about whether or not we wear Armani designer clothes? Natural selection is only one aspect of evolution. It was first written up in a scientific paper by Alfred Russel Wallace. Charles Darwin, who'd been thinking along similar lines but not yet written a paper, became a co-presenter of the theory and then, in writing it up in The Origin of Species, became the figure who sold the idea to the general public. In the process, the focus changed somewhat.
Wallace's theory was that evolution progressed through the elimination of the weakest. If the mother is afraid and stressed and stress hormones are in her blood because of what is going on in her world, those stress hormones cross the placenta and also affect the child. And this is so profoundly important.
Let me just give you a meaning behind it. When you are in stress, the stress hormones redirect the flow of the blood in the body because they are getting you ready for fight or flight. So the stress hormones get into the body and redirect the flow of the blood to the arms and legs. That is the protection mechanism. Its also, in the brain, when you have stress hormones in your body, you constrict the blood vessels in your forebrain so that the blood preferentially goes to the hindbrain.
This is where the brain controls reaction and responses to the environment, stimulus responses. So when you are thinking, you are using the forebrain. When you are reacting you are using the hindbrain.
So the biology of stress redirects the flow of the blood from the forebrain to the hindbrain to encourage that. So I say, Cool, the blood flows change when you are in stress versus when youre happy. And I go, Oh thats nice. What does this mean for the fetus?
The fetuss body develops in response to the nourishment it gets. Whatever tissue gets more nourishment grows faster. And I say, Okay, what is the consequence of a fetus that is in a mother that is stressed in the world that she lives in?
The stress hormones from the mother which cause her blood to go to her arms and legs and get ready for fight or flight and cause the blood flow in the brain to go to the back. That happens in the fetus. But the fetus is growing very quickly in response to nourishment. So I say, What will happen to a fetus that lives in a mother who perceives the world as stress?
And the answer is, the blood flow in the fetus will preferentially go to the arms and legs. The fetus will be bigger! More muscular! And what about the blood flow to the brain? And I say, What have you done? You have changed the genetic readout of this fetus to create a street fighter.
And the reason why is, if the world really is a struggle, as perceived by the mother, then a fetus that grows up with these characteristics of a bigger physical body and a better coordinating hindbrain; this child will survive better in a stressful environment. But what is the consequence?
What if the child were in a healthy environment, a happy environment as perceived by the mother? The blood then goes into the viscera, all the organs of growth, maintenance and health of the body get nourished very well. The blood actually feeds the forebrain so the child becomes more intelligent. Again, it is compensation, this child is going to be a heck of a street fighter!
But intelligence-wise, it is going to lose a lot. The blood goes into the viscera; all the organs of growth, maintenence and health of the body get nourished very well.
And heres a fact, the American Medical Association has recognized this, I have articles in Science from ten years ago, but finally the AMA recognizes that the fundamental cause of most adult diseases, cancer, diabetes, obesity, issues like this, is related to life experiences in the fetal and perinatal period of the childs development.
So all of a sudden we realize that genetic switches that ultimately control our life were first programmed during this important introduction to the world, and the relationship of the parents is instrumental in which genes are going to be selected in their fetus, which then in turn is instrumental in the health of that child in his future life. Buczynski: But it is beyond the childs birth period and ongoing process isnt it, throughout life, even when the child is no longer living with or influenced by their parents, there is still a sense of epigenetics in their life?
