Did our sudden Neo-Cortex outgrowth stumped our survival process as a species?

A few of the human species developed this Neo-Cortex outgrowth that was as big as the current species, and they have gone extinct.

The Cro-Magnon barely made use of this outgrowth and they never changed their dwelling habit and tools.

The Neanderthal species left very detailed painting in deep caves and vanished about 30,000 years after spreading in much of current Europe.

The current human species managed through sustained “nurturing procedure” to eventually integrate this process into their genes.

This qualitative jump allowed this species to tap into the potentialities of this new outgrowth, a gift that was Not that needed for its survival but played a big role in sedentary tradition, creating verbal languages and written languages…

The consequences were the forming of highly structured societies in hierarchical trends which affected our brains and sensory organs to structurally filter the multitude of stimuli (or background noises) that bombard our system.

Supposedly, these filtering barriers were meant to allow us to survive our daily tasks within our structured environment.

This Neo-Cortex might be a handicap for our survival since the materialistic “rational” interpretations of phenomena and events are disrupting the vast potentials of our cognitive system.

Since Aristotle, many intellectuals claimed that “Within a few years, all the mysteries and superstitions will be explained and resolved for our rational comprehension.”

And yet, we are no nearer of understanding the multitudes of mysteries surrounding us.

Probably, our deficiencies revolve around:

1. The Neo-Cortex was not “programmed” to resolve abstract concepts related to our death and spiritual quests

2. The tenuous assumption that the power and potentials of our brains have No limits.

Mankind survived for thousand of years and relied on telepathy, premonition, psychokinese, pre-cognition… and people believed on the power of a few leaders (shaman, medicine man, priest of the tribe…) to see the future of events, catastrophes and the like.

People believed in extra-sensory abilities to predict and see what our limited sensory organs can perform.

People accepted that many connections and coincidences were Not related to physical causative factors.

The first half of this century produced scores of Nobel laureates who challenged many classical physical laws and set the stage of a wider openness of the mind to interpret mysteries not resolved by pure cognitive methods. (See notes)

After taking hallucigen matters (natural or lab fabricated), of all kinds, the brains and sensory organs will start recognizing certain stimuli as acceptable inputs or sounds to be retrieved and stored as reality. With frequent intakes, the filter structure in the brains will relax their hold and let more stimuli to pass into the cognitive realm.

The same procedure is valid for these new “Augmented” technology for the sensory organs to enhance our limited perception power.

The difference is that the Augmented technology should be more efficient than those over-doze intake of chemicals that are already in our system, because they create new side networks of neurons and synapsis that circumvent and bypass the hierarchical structure in our nervous system.

The problem with chemical intakes are addictive and prohibit the individual from experimenting with a life without those chemicals, even though with focus and determination they could experience the same extra sensations after they quit.

Mankind is going through a period of totally relying on the autonomous sub branches in our internal hierarchical structure. Most of the experts in sub-field are totally ignorant or uninterested in other disciples.

Barely a few of the intellectuals check with the higher levels in the structure to seek an integrative and holistic view of the problems the word is going through.

Note 1: Essay inspired from Arthur Koestler in “Janus” 1978

Note 2: The first half of the 20th century witnessed a new world view:

1. Heisenberg stated the “Uncertainty Principle“: In the atomic level, it is not possible to accurately measure simultaneously the location and the speed of a particle. Atoms are Not things or have to be viewed as physical objects with local space, speed, dimensions or energy. At the atomic level,  the world of space-time stop to exist

2. The “Mach Principle” states: The properties of inert matters are determined by the Total Mass of the universe. Inertia is Not intrinsic to the physical body.

3. “Bell theorem” states: When 2 particles interacted and went on opposite directions, any interference with one particle will instantaneously affect the other particle, no matter how distant they are from one another.

4. Wolfgang Pauli “Exclusion Principle” states: No two electrons can occupy the same orbit around the nucleus.

5. “Woltereck Principle” states: Nature has the tendency of creating new forms of life (Anamorphous)

6. The biologist Paul Kammerer stated: Series are universal occurring phenomenon. There exist in the universe a tendency to unite same items in categories that has nothing to do with causality. A sort of selective (sympathetic) serial phenomenon is omnipresent and continual in life, nature and the cosmos.

7. John Wheeler stated: Black Holes and White Holes are two hyper-spaces. Each point in a hyper-space represents a complete 3-dimensional world

8. Feynman stated that particles can go back in time for brief instances.

9. Poisson probability distribution is a universal paradox where a large number of incertitude events generate a certainty.

10. Pic de la Mirandole stated:

1) Unity of the beings is so that each in One with itself, consists of itself and adheres to itself (Associative tendency)

2) Unity of each creature to all the other creature and the world (transcendental or integrative tendency)

“Human Types; Essence and the Enneagram” (Part 2), by Suzan Zannos

It seems that the tarot and playing deck of cards are basically symbols to represent the characteristics of individuals.

For example, the aces represent the center of gravity of the main function in a human type; the Jack is the moving center in that function, the Queen the emotional center, and the King the intellectual center.

The Ace of clubs is for the instinctive function, the Ace of spades for the moving function, the Ace of hearts for the emotional function, and the Ace of diamonds for the intellectual function.

The effort of the Fourth Way to make sense of human behavior and classifying mankind into a meaningful structure is all based on conjectures. Susan Zannos is trying to lay the theoretical ground or a hierarchical picture of human behaviors that goes like this:

The jacks or the lowest forms of intelligence in the four human functions (which are the instinctive club, the moving spade, the emotional heart, and the intelligence diamond) are the mechanical parts that operate without attention and thus are unaware of each other manifestations.  The queens exert a strong influence on intelligence forms but they do not work together; for example, when the queen of clubs is tired or hungry, the queen of hearts is more likely to fly into a rage over some small matters; when the queen of spades becomes fascinated by scuba diving, the queen of diamonds is stimulated to start reading about barrier reefs, and the queen of clubs looks for recipes for cooking abalone.  The kings or highest levels of intelligence, work together and can combine their different varieties of intelligence so that they may operate with mutual awareness. For example, it may be impossible to isolate the king of hearts’ aesthetic sensibilities from the king of spades’ awareness of effective design in proportion; the king of diamonds ability to apply scale and relativity in thinking requires the king of heart’s capacity to examine possibilities without identification.

The instinctive function is the most basic and most powerful mind that can override the other three functions, especially when the body is suffering from illnesses and physical disturbances and imbalances; in that case, the instinctive mind shut down the other functions until the body recovers from this survival circumstance.

The intellectual part in the instinctive function or king of clubs controls the energy of the whole person and kicks in without intentional decision in dangerous situations and can become a constant energy drain in older people, preventing them from doing activities they should be attempting.

When the intellectual center in the instinctive function is strong then, the split second before an inevitable life threatening situation can seem to stretch for minutes, so the person is allowed the needed time to observe and maneuver around the danger.

Telepathy, clairvoyance, charisma, and such experiences considered paranormal or extra-sensory, may be functions of the king of clubs.  The king of clubs has the ability to put an invisible wall, a force field, around itself to repel unwanted advances from other people and may have paranoia in their concern for safety.

The kings of the four functions are developed through conscious efforts; the effort to be more intelligent results in unified interactions among the kings which generate stronger will to be able to do and to love.  The more developed the kings are in the four functions the more they can keep the queens under control from extreme mood swings because the queens have the capacity to hoard most of the energy available once the energy of the basic instincts for survival are supplied.

Reading this book I could not but feel a tacit hypothesis that the dominant gland during childhood might be the determining factor in an individual’s psychological and physical make up.

I think that it could be a valid hypothesis to invest on longitudinal experiments (carried over long periods throughout individuals’ life) in that direction.

Since pediatric physicians can determine from a set of graphs how tall a kid is going to be without drastic interventions, it might be possible to determine the normal psychological characteristics of kids if suitable non intrusive methods are discovered to determine their glands activities.  At least, mothers could benefit by learning more about what to expect and how to care for their kids and redirect their kids’ tendencies.
