Biological Basis to Fear and Anger?

October 23, 2017

Finally, after studying the problem over many many years, I may have some discoveries about where Fear and Anger came from.

SUGGESTION, the two key emotions of FEAR and ANGER have a very specific biological basis.

Both emotions have evolved out of key parts of the digestive system in all living things. The two are tied to taking in nurturing while protecting against infection.

FEAR is the body’s response to any infection.
FEAR helps us BLOCK OUT and EXCRETE OUT infection.

ANGER is the body’s response to hunger.
ANGER helps us TAKE IN and HOLD IN nurturing.

We are AFRAID when we think there may be infection.
We are ANGRY when we are hungry.

FEAR seems to be most active around the mouth and nose before eating.

ANGER seems to be the most active in the small intestines when taking in nurturing.

SUGGESTION, most of these digestive emotions of fear and anger, happened in infancy when we were setting up our body’s digestive system and defense system. That was the time of the most danger. That was also the time of the most emotions of fear and anger.

SUGGESTION, because the digestive problems of infancy were unconscious developments, and because they were the most intense periods of infection fear and nurturing anger; they may lead us to unconscious adult problems of excess fear, or excess anger.

This leads to all the autoimmune diseases and negative behavior connected with this excess, repressed, infant, fear and anger.

There is much much more to this, and more implications than I can fathom right now.

This is quite a project, and this is quite a book. I liked it because it allowed my mind to ramble as I read Tom Hendricks’s viewpoint on many different topics, presented to me in different ways.

Writings in Science (A History of the Future) by Tom Hendricks is billed as A Novel of Stories, Essays, Poems, and Plays. This is probably, at least structurally speaking, one of the most experimental novels I have read in a long time. Many sections read like the musings of an intelligent human being who thinks quite a lot about science, man, art, the universe, and the future. That man would be author Tom Hendricks. At around 400 pages, this is a lot of serious but sometimes whimsical musing. It is organized into “bottles” instead of chapters. (I told you it was experimental.) It is huge in scope, imagining a dying Earth millions of years in the future, and a protagonist running around collecting these literary tidbits as a history of Earth. This is quite a project, and this is quite a book. I liked it because it allowed my mind to ramble as I read Tom Hendricks’s viewpoint on many different topics, presented to me in different ways.

Writings in Science is, in many aspects, a stunning achievement. To tie all these topics and literary mediums into one book is no simple task, but Tom Hendricks does a great job. I enjoyed the essays more than I did the poems, plays, or stories. He hit on some topics that I have written on myself, and even came to a similar conclusion sometimes. The poems, jokes, and plays are good and, though I prefer straightforward prose in a novel for the most part, I found this a very interesting book.

Convergent Evolution – Letter to Dr. Morris

July 8, 2015

Dr. Simon Conway Morris

Convergent Evolution is a fascinating idea. Here are some aspects that may interest you.

1 The Origin of Life may have been, not a one time fluke chemical event, but the most stable chemical system in that environment over millions of years – specifically that which best survived the daily UV (day and night cycle), and turned it into a way to become more stable – stable in two ways, 1. stable in keeping what works, and 2. stable in changing what doesn’t.

2. Convergent evolution may work for catabolic and anabolic processes too – such that the better catabolic and anabolic methods are selected for across all life.

3. Being bipedal, not only freed the hands for tools, but perhaps more importantly allowed the mother to hold, carry, caress, and soothe the baby. Thus developing strong social bonds. I tend to think social bonds are a part of convergent evolution.

This is an article on Dr. Morris’s book.

Catabolic and Anabolic evolved, but they did not blend.
