COMING TO FRUITION: HOW HUMANS CREATED CULTURE

Clay Pot Lot

“We have for more than pride.”


the evolution of us having it

Throughout human history, of building civilizations we have consistently contributed to our worldwide culture. But in the beginning of time, we were unaware that we were even creating culture. That’s right, the human brain had not fully evolved, and we were just creating things we needed out of necessity. We might create a eating utensil, then someone else somewhere else might create one as well. Then over time we go back as anthropologist and see how different groups created what they built. That is how we are able to see how the evolution of culture had taken hold. Then once we started developing language we gave it a name that can be translated eventually into many languages.

i’m hungry, i need shelter, i need clothes

If you’re curious as to why we need culture. Well, we don’t need culture, it just sort of came out of needs. If you lived in Africa, your culture is going to seem a lot more primitive than Europe because of a few factors. Clothing is more of a need in Europe because of climate and more scarce resources. Africa is thee most abundant resource place on Earth. And when food needed, during the distant past there were oasis of plants, wildlife may not have always been the first choice. Given where you live, your culture might have also been shaped by the resources around to build a shelter.

interconnected species

The fact that we were evolving and creating our own tribes and identities, goes to show that we are the make up for what was supposed to be culture in the world. Meaning, if I am in Africa, someone else in Europe, someone else in Asia, and we are creating shelter, clothes, figuring out food for self, then the DNA makeup of people was set in us to do so. We just needed a situation where need came into play, then we created culture from that need. And from need we built off of something to further embrace and gave ourselves a sense of belonging.

DANGEROUSLY SMART: THE MORE EDUCATED WE BECOME THE MORE PROBLEMS WE CAUSE

black-and-white, blackboard, business

“We get smarter, and we get more dangerous.”


learning to scale

The more educated we become the farther away from ourselves we get as people. You would think that the education would make us better. But what we have done is become more aware, yet distant at the same time. Our educated minds create technology meant to bring us closer together, yet it’s the mediums that binds us.

doing more

Are we not doing more with our learning? We send our children to schools to learn, but what. What are they really learning? Are they genuinely learning material that will have a positive impact or negative one? They able to used smart devices better than their parents, but are we not utilizing their abilities to its full potential. Should we be doing more are we doing enough?

negative externalities

When what we learn is not utilized in the appropriate manner, we worsen society. When the more learned and understood of the masses ignore morals and principles that have aided us thus far, we lose a piece of ourselves. For example, we educate ourselves in this new tech space. But now people are creating dating apps that break conventional dating norms. And what it has done was create an impersonal for of communication.

growth

Our brains will grown because we are constantly evolving and trying to make sense of the world around us. But the more we learn about ourselves the more educated we become the more we become slaves to our own vulnerability.

CEREBRAL REACH: WHAT IT TAKES TO HARNESS 100 PERCENT OF THE HUMAN MIND

analysis, blackboard, board

“Think about all the possibilities.”


the brain

The human brain is a very interesting and very complex organ in the human body. For the longest there has been a myth that humans only use 10% of our human brains. But that is such a bad myth, when in fact we use 100% of our brains throughout the day. The reason we have said 10% in the past is because we use such a small portion of our minds to its full potential. And that is where the confusion takes place. There is a difference between the brain in use and using the brain. Is there a science behind being able to harness the brain to its full potential? Is there a model that can be used to tap into the brain?

daily task

For the most part, our brains are used to get through the day performing mundane task. These task include cooking breakfast, completing a task on the job, exercising during the day, and raising children once you get home. These are repetitious daily task we do so much we no longer think to do them. And there lies the problem with the reason man is not able to harness the brain to its full potential of both physical and mental resources. Very few of us learn new things in life, so we stop evolving past a certain point. But for the curious ones that do continuously learn, they grow past everyone else.

use it or lose it

The brain is like any other muscle in the body that you must work over time. Just as you exercise your chest with bench pressing, or squats for leg strength, you must read to open your mind to new possibilities. You would think that I read a lot of novels pursuing writing, but I don’t. I actually read about psychology, health, motivation, biology, and social interactions. This aids in me writing characters for my screenplays because I know to a degree the human construct. So creating scenarios is easier than reading someone else’s work that is fiction. But in this, I observe people in society and base my claims about the life around all of us from the observation when people don’t think they are being watched. Which is usually the real behavior. That is how I use my mind.

scientific findings

There are so many findings in science, but I would really like to find the science of some people just born to know. I know there all these factors that play a role in those who can harness their mind to do better in life, than those that don’t succeed. Because I will be writing something not realizing how that idea got there, but it is there. Even before I started working the brain, things manifested within me. Hopefully science will be able to figure out what makes some of us able to figure out ourselves while others can’t. Below is a video from → National Geographics on the science behind the brain.

HUMAN ARRIVAL: HOW DID WE AS PEOPLE COME TO BE

Related image

“From the past into the present.”


the beginning

The scientific theory is that man started to evolve some 315,000 years in the continent of Africa. And from that point ventured out into the world coming in contact with all types of obstacles along the way. But eventually we have made our way to today and continue to evolve. Now, this does not go without criticism from people of deep religious faith who believe otherwise. But the academic belief still holds strong in our society. And these two opposing side have been at odds for hundreds of years. Even in the past people lost their lives, one in particular Galileo Galilee who challenged the churches views on the Earth.

theory based on what

Where do these theories come from, or better yet, how do scientist really know for sure how many came about? One of their ways that they observe is through observation of creatures from all different walks of life. Then from watching what we are as a creature we try to figure out the closest species. And what they have come up with that is closer to man is the idea that we broke away at some point from our ape cousins. Well, where does this come from? Through the fact that we share a 99% strain with apes. Because there is a reason why we have for so long tested apes when trying to figure out the cures for diseases in humans. When you’re dealing with a creature only 1% different then you have a lot to stand on.

continuous process

Are we still evolving, and the answer is yes. Well how do we know if man is still evolving? The reasons being that we make leaps and bounds with technological advancement. This will inevitably cause the human brain to expand, thus new creations made on Earth. Which is a form of evolution. Because the idea that we were in horse drawn wagons then cars then planes is a testament to the evolution jumps. Now we have rovers in space on the Moon and on Mars. So, to an extent the idea that we as humans evolve continuously exist, but at what time do we stop evolving? Will we ever hit a point where we just can’t know anymore. There is an end to everything; a finite amount of anything. Our universe has a time in which it will expand beyond limits. So will our minds reach a point to stop expanding.

THE NEW US: IS THERE A SPECIES STILL EVOLVING THAT WILL RIVAL US IN TIME

Related image

“We fight now, but might need each other later.”


evolving

The debate is open on human evolution. But what is more intriguing to me is what if there is another species evolving later, like now. What if another species is evolving and we could potentially be competition for them. How would humanity fair in a world where we are now the hunted and something else or someone else is the hunter? That would mean that we are now forced to come together to fight something that we have in common that is a detriment to our species. How would this likely effect us even if we were to be able to defeat the common enemy?

cooperation

Man ventured out and over time reintroduced ourselves not knowing how we left to start with in history. Meaning when man left Africa into Europe, once the two sides met again, one took on a totally different look than the original. So to the opposing sides they were hostiles, but were really distant family. Problem with another species competing with man, is that all that we have ever experienced must be set aside for cooperation. How do you cooperate in a world that made you feel as if you were fighting each other over something important. So, we would actually be prey for a while before we realized we were being hunted because we have fought each other for so long.

forms of evolved species

We seem to think that species has to be human in form to overtake us. But we are in a different form than the food we consume. So maybe the form of the species could potentially exist in a form of something close to us, a family pet. It all sounds sci-fi, but we are here why not anything else just as dominant. I guess I am thinking about this because man is not a special as we think we are; there are more powerful forces. So to think about one being the prey to a greater predator is not far fetched. Maybe not in 100 years or even 1,000 years, but how about 100,000 to 500,000 years into the future? But you’ll never get that through the minds of people until it’s too late.

SORROW: WHY DO WE HAVE HURT AND PAIN AS HUMANS

adult, art, conceptual

“It’s there since birth, but why?”


sorrows

Humans are endowed since birth with a lot of emotions. Emotions that I can’t explain as to why we have them, but we do. And sorrow is one of those emotions that we have as people. Why were we given an emotion such as sorrow? How does this aid us in our existence on this planet. Because everything we are born with in our lives serve as some type of purpose for our survival in the beginning of time. So in having the emotion to feel sorrow, pain, hurt, and dejection; where did it come from in the beginning?

early on

As humans evolved into the beings that we are today, there are things that have aided in our further existence. As I said before in other post, there are families that will never be known because for whatever reason they fell off. Whether it was not having offspring, or taking part in some activity that ended their lives. But emotions gave us the ability to feel compassion, and animal, bigfoot, evolutionmainly for one another. Even though there was tribal fighting because as man ventured out we would eventually find our way back to other early humans. That’s when hostility arose, but once hostility died down some more, man would procreate even with those seen as different. Civilizations stronger arose, and the reason for further compassion became paramount.

maintaining sorrow

As time progress, we not only continue to have sorrows, but we have also used sorrow to take on other meanings. Sorrow also can mean happy just as much as it means to be hurt. We show sorrow when our kid takes their first steps, graduate from college, and get married. We have found ways to channel our hurt into happiness so that tears that form in the eyes come out of fulfillment. And we are becoming more of a global community with each passing year. Who knows, man might eventually become a one nation species. Not in 10 years or even 100 years, but who knows in 1,000 years.

HUMAN REPRODUCTION: HOW DID THE FIRST HUMANS KNOW SEX LED TO MORE PEOPLE

Image result for human reproduction

“How did we figure it out?”


reproduction

Upon ejaculation the sperm enters the vagina and sticks to the walls. There is no guarantee that the sperm will get her pregnant, but for the sake of the topic let’s say she does. Of the millions of sperm that make the destination, only one will fertilize the egg. And once that happens, over the course of 9 months a baby is born into the womb of a woman. Then, when it’s time, a child will be brought into this world. That child will grow and most likely give life, thus the continuation of the human chain of existence. Now my question is, how did the first humans manage to make it happen?  How did the first people manage to know that sex would create a human? What was the thing that they attempted which made them engage in sex.

accidental intercourse

What if we found out about sex by accident? Maybe we were trying to figure things out as humans would today, and stumbled upon procreation. The discovery of anything has come by way of accident. Human arousal is the same as any other mammal. And yet we tried numerous ways to cope with this sense of arousal. As with a monkey placing a stick in a hole to try to worm out ants, that is an accident in itself. You see this being of the opposite sex, not understanding why we feel a certain way, we test things out. The sense of touch has aided man in figuring out a lot. But once they figured out that intercourse not only created humans, but brought about pleasure, it became paramount to our existence.

in the know

Once we became aware, it was time to expand beyond our borders into other areas. Because the curiosity about ourselves became more important. Also the numbers of us grew into greater amounts, so we moved out from which we initially dwell. But putting ourselves in the know does not only aid us in the past, but also in the future to come. And what’s crazy, there are families we will never know their existence because they didn’t figure it out and died off.
