A BRIEF LOOK INTO OUR PAST
If we are going to teach creation science as an alternative to evolution, then we should also teach the stork theory as an alternative to biological reproduction. - Judith Hayes
The power elite of every civilization have, over the course of the millennia, effectively learned how to manipulate the hearts and minds of their subjects. Our own instincts and unconscious thought processes are used against us with ruthless precision, condemning us to the life of simple herd animals. If we are to break free of external control, we must consciously analyze and understand our own internal processes.
In order to begin this study, we must first examine the structure of our brains, and the physical evolution which led to this structure. Indeed, it is impossible to explain or understand human physiology, psychology or behavior without at least a cursory understanding of how we evolved to our present form.
The human brain actually consists of three separate brains: the reptilian brain, the old mammalian brain, and the cerebral cortex. Each of these brains slowly evolved over vast periods of time, and each still play a vital role to our survival and continued evolution.
The reptilian brain, which we share with snakes, lizards and birds, is the unconscious portion of our mind responsible for the infamous Four F’s: Fighting, Fleeing, Feeding and Fucking. Nature, at her core, is unforgiving and without emotion. In order for higher forms of life to survive and continue to evolve, each newly evolved life form must contain the mechanisms necessary to fight or run from perceived threats, to obtain nourishment from its environment, and to mate with healthy, fertile members of its opposite sex.
Sexual reproduction is sloppy and imprecise. Although most offspring will roughly mimic the physical makeup of their parents, the occasional defect, or reproductive fluke, will occur. Most of these genetic accidents will be unfit for life, but on rare occasion, an accident will afford an advantage.
As life forms increased in complexity, a second brain, known as the "limbic system" or "old mammalian brain", evolved to permit such functions as memory, mood, emotion, and hormone control. Humans share this brain with older mammals such as dogs, horses, pigs, and cats, all of which are capable of loyalty, fear, trust, and a range of other “human” emotions.
A third brain system, the cerebral cortex, later evolved to permit functions such as complex social interaction, conceptualization, intricate strategy, deception, language, and consciousness. Although the lower primates (such as monkeys and chimpanzees) also have a cerebral cortex, only humans have evolved to the point of creating (and violating) artificial laws, pledging love and plotting betrayal, imprisoning and torturing other beings, and conceiving of complex technologies to dominate nature, as opposed to living with her in harmony.
This discussion is intended only as a cursory overview of the evolution of the human mind, for the purpose of later demonstrating how the masses of humanity are dominated and controlled by those with a greater understanding of human psychology. Those interested in further in-depth study of evolution, and the debunking of creation mythology, are encouraged to read The Third Chimpanzee: The Evolution and Future of the Human Animal by Jared Diamond, The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind by Julian Jaynes, and The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without Design by Richard Dawkins.
Before we may understand how we are manipulated and controlled by various forms of authority, we must first comprehend our own nature, and our own mental processes. For it is through our own nature, and our own thought patterns, that our oppressors find the tools to keep us on our knees.
