Diagnosis and Remedies
35) The diagnostic approaches that I have briefly outlined are :
a) The explosive growth of the human neocortex (brain) and its insufficient control of the old brain. Part reptile and earlier to (human) homo sapiens our species.
b) The protracted helplessness of the new born and the consequent uncritical submissiveness to authority.
c) Language (Art, Nigel Spivey – How Art Made The World) as a rabble rouser and builder of ethnic barriers.
d) The discovery of and the mind splitting fear of death.
36) To neutralise the pathogenic factors does not seem an impossible task. Medicine has found remedies for certain types of schizophrenic and manic-depressive psychoses; it is no longer utopian to believe that it could not discover a combination of benevolent enzymes which provide the neocortex with a veto against the follies of the archaic brain, correct evolutions glaring mistake, reconcile emotion with reason, and catalyse the breakthrough from maniac to man.
37) Other avenues are waiting to be explored and may lead to salvation in the nick of time, provided that there is a sense of urgency – and a correct diagnosis of the condition of humankind, based on a new approach to the sciences of life.
You can add, a, b, c, and d, to the knowledge gained in the life sciences and related to human life science. The many explanations of a, b, c, and d can very much be found on earlier articles. The last three or so ‘Notes of Dads’ seem to be the accumulation of Dads notes. These were done by hand, and by his pencil writing. However, there is more to come! The meaning of life, or the meaning of your life: this you will have to research for yourself without any reliance on the secondhand answers by suspect and the crooked authorities who would like to control you. This, of course, only if you wish to go beyond the rather instant, and the – as we now know, so many of the superstitious answers promoted by some people and organizations as factual. Most people would rather be told (especially by authority) than actually try and learn anything for themselves, being mostly too lazy and the facts too dry and boring. A good enough start is the ‘The Selfish Gene’ by Richard Dawkins ISBN 0-19-286092-5. Why should anyone read this book? Everyone who is interested in the universe and their place in it. ‘River Out Of Eden’ is another by Richard Dawkins or his ‘The Devil’s Chaplain’ that is if you like good titles to start you off on the road to reality in this somewhat, ‘Feelingly impossible world’, you can THEN fathom it all out for yourself.
