QM, Phylogenetic Regression, and Extreme Aggression

The Reptilian Mind For the infant, disruption of its biological homeostatic balance needed to sustain life is “felt” at a physiological level as life-threatening, which it is. Similarly, for the infantile reptilian-minded “adult,” anything experienced as a threat to the status quo can also be “felt” as life-threatening, as much as asphyxiation would be for […]

Thoughts On How We Got Here & The Evolution Of Our Brains

Creationism is a dramatic story. The Supreme God commands the universe into existence, touching the earth to make humanity. But I think a more powerful story is the extraordinary evolutionary force that brings a universe into existence and gives rise to stars, life, and human consciousness.

QM as a Model of Human Consciousness

As is true of all models, the quadrune mind model of human consciousness is a simplification of reality. The diversity of people’s mentalities is much more complex than QM’s basic four: reptilian-like, old mammalian-like, new mammalian-like, and human.
