Basic Instincts: The hive

Basic Instincts: The hive








I have always been interested on understanding the human behaviour.

Why do we do the things the way we do them?

Is it that we are “programmed”, that the “bad boys” will always be bad?

Do we obey to immutable patterns, out of our control, or do we really have freewill to choose?

We are starting to understand how the human mind works, together with new discoveries about how the brain works physically.

The brain is far the most complicated item in the universe, with over a Billion of operations in a second.

Even if we are at the dawn of an era on which communications are “taking over the world”, our brain is still “jailed”, and the only way that the brain can communicate with a certain degree of sense, is the language, which is ridiculously limited compared with the richness our mind can produce.

With all, we are only scratching the surface when we apply therapies or try to modify behaviours or habits. It is still out of reach by now to understand how it really works, in order to be able to master it.

Due to the fact that I am not a psychologist, just a technician, I try to find explanations to it in my own way. In my work, I build machines with an average of 10.000 to 20.000 parts. These machines are of a great quality and precision.

The only way to do them of this quality, is using the best available materials, and building them together with the most possible accuracy. And this is a challenge.

But the biggest challenge is to build ourselves.

As it is so complicated to consider all the factors, like culture and education background, social environment, life experiences, the only way I see to influence and upgrade myself, is to work on the basic factors, common to all human beings.

I have tried to put together two lists of basic factors, “good and bad”, and will go on future posts describing them one by one, as well as giving hints on how to detect them and how to upgrade or counteract to them, in order to enhance ourselves.

The basic factors list I put together is:

-Love, joy, gentleness, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control

-Lust, sloth, greed, anger, envy, jealousy, pride.

For sure, there are many others to be considered as well, and I will eagerly receive and add your suggestions and comments to the following posts.

Same as you, we are like little children in a dark tunnel looking to find our way out.

To be able to find all these posts in one place I will publish at the hive Basic Instincts, so you can go always there to check.

If there is but one choice we can make that will have the most impact, it is service. Our brain is subjected to so much information beyond our control from birth too present. We may have been given a belief system by our parents but we formed our own emotional narrative to the challenges of the system. In some if not most cases the system and the programmed responses create a circle of discontent we cant break out from without using something that will gain us access to a different path. This break out for me was service. In all that i do i must serve others in doing it. This single effort helped me step out of the life loop of my own narrative. This is more a mental narrative. Before i open my ,mouth, act on a situation or retreat i have to figure out a way of doing it through serving others. Sounds crazy and sometimes it doesn't work, but what it did for me break the loop of narrative+emotional response=consequences. I have found in reality that the act of service, again the mental game of being prepared to serve, is love or philos.

I will be honored if you read and comment the next posts. In fact, I am already on it, but it will take some time. It will speak about love, on which I know you have a lot to say. Above all, I agree that fear and hope walk together. When you achieve to win to fears with hope, this is sometimes called bravery. And the world belongs to the braves.

I really appreciate your wisdom, Dear Ali, when pointing out the difference between complicated and complex. Both in English and Spanish language have the same difference between them. As in the Spanish definition, Complex is "a system composed of several interconnected or interwoven parts whose links between them contain additional information and hidden from the observer. As a result of interactions between elements, new properties that can not be explained from the properties of individual elements emerge. These properties are called emergent properties." And this is precisely what the human mind is: Complex, due to its emergent properties which are completely random and therefore, impossible to establish a pattern. We can only try to "bombard" ourselves with the things which are proven to be "good", and hope somehow that a "good result" comes out. By the way, I see now that HOPE is another of the human and basic factors to be considered in future posts. You can only find it in humans, as is a factor which can change everything, and be successful even against the most logical thinking.

David Navarro L\u00f3pez- you wrote "But the biggest challenge is to build ourselves. As it is so complicated to consider all the factors, like culture and education background, social environment, life experiences, the only way I see to influence and upgrade myself, is to work on the basic factors, common to all human beings". This is exactly the difference between complicated and complex. Complicated systems like aeroplanes are programmed and work within rules and instructions. Humans are complex. Small changes in behavior might lead to different outcomes. In your previous buzzes you mentioned the ice cream case and how offering ice cream to employees during a hot day made you and the employees jubilant and more productive. This kind of butterfly effect doesn't exist in complicated systems.

Good point, José Ramón. I am sure you have seen "The Matrix" (red pill or blue pill). We cannot have absolute freedom. We can only choose on the options we get. But on those we are the ones who decides. Making our decisions, or taking choices, based on good human values is a way to give life a chance to return "good" to you.
