Five Flaws of the Monkey Brain in the Modern World
1. Separating ourselves from the animals, then separating ourselves from each other.
2. Needing hierarchy, a pecking order of alpha males all the way up to the Old Guy With a Beard in the Sky.
3. Worshiping violence.
4. Clinging to dogma despite obvious empirical evidence to the contrary; trusting our intuition over our reason.
5. Exploiting the young for financial and personal short-term gain.Posted by tat at April 27, 2007 01:50 PM
