Thank you for considering my work. I believe it to be a contribution worthy of my time, and I hope, of yours as well.
The Power Of Knowing How People Work
Your Life, Instinct & Emotional Intelligence (A Practical Guide)
Evolutionology describes how our survival instinct actually works, how it makes us think and behave, and how to regain control.
Seeing this is a necessary first step in order to increase our emotional intelligence and evolve consciously. Until we do, our inner animal will continue holding the reins and controlling our thoughts and actions, and we will continue to congratulate ourselves on our superiority and correctness, even as our lives and world simmer in quiet desperation around us. Most of us are reacting, not choosing — thinking instinctively and declaring it intelligent.

The Animal In The Mirror
How Survival Instinct Controls Our Thought & Behavior
How To Achieve Real Freedom Of Choice In Spite Of It
Publisher: Quicycle Press, 2020
The Animal In The Mirror is about why we think and behave the way we do. It is about what our emotions really represent, and how and why they influence our actions so much more than logic and reason.
Knowing the extent to which our thinking, as individuals and as a species, is guided by our survival instinct rather than our intelligence can be extremely empowering. The path to a better future leads through the gateway of this realization. The extent to which we remain oblivious to it is the extent to which our lives and world will manifest dysfunction and our progress will remain unnecessarily slow and painful.
Topics covered (and explained) include:
Religion: why we choose it, what it does for us, what the difference is between religious and spiritual, and why that matters.
Men & Women: why we choose the partner we choose, and why we act and react the way we do in our relationships.
Politics: why we choose the side we choose, and why we think the other side is ignorant, wrong, or even evil (when they are not).
Depression, Substance (Ab)use & Happiness: what depression really is, why we use and abuse substances, and how to see a way beyond it.
Science: what is and what is not scientific, and how we prevent science from being corrupted by our politics and other biases.
Animals: the degree to which animals are capable of feeling, and what that means.
Sexuality: the instinctive nature of our sexual thinking and how it manifests dysfunction in our lives and relationships.
Parenting & Children: how to parent in a healthy way and how our instinct undermines that tendency.
Education & Teaching: how to teach towards wisdom and an empowered future, and how our instinct limits our thinking.
Bigotry & Racism: where they come from, instinctively, why they occur in even good people, and how to get beyond them.
