The Biological Origins of Humanities “Fall From Grace” coined by Tony Wright – One of the foremost researchers in the exploration of the evolution of the human nervous system…
Modern science (or more accurately the brains and minds of modern scientists) continues to interpret a wealth of data from a number of disciplines on the basis of the untested presumption that our neural system is fully functional and at the pinnacle of its evolution.
Reread that last sentence again and again until what was said there seeps in….
An investigation into the evolution of the human brain.
The human brain, over a period of perhaps a million years, expanded at an increasingly rapid rate then, some 200,000 years ago, this expansion suddenly stopped. There is, to date, no plausible scientific explanation for either of these linked events.
Religious and mythic traditions of paradise inform us that we once lived in a benign state of perpetual wonder and joy but from this we regressed. The reasons for this are obscure. Do these apparently unrelated perspectives have something in common?
The new theory presented here and in Left In The Dark proposes the extraordinary evolution of our brain was influenced by changes in the activity of our own hormones.
Such a seemingly innocuous idea has dramatic ramifications. It not only explains a number of recently uncovered anomalies within the human mind, but also makes sense of the stories of human degeneration that are preserved in virtually all cultural myths and religions from around the world.
Both perspectives tell the same unexpected and shocking story, humanity is suffering from a progressive neurodegenerative condition that has distorted our perception and altered our sense of self.
This seemingly dire situation however has a positive side ,we still have unimaginable potential just waiting to be unlocked. There is a very real possibility of regaining our lost perceptual heritage.
