Human Nature

The Theory of Balanceology took a pivotal turn when I introduced human nature into my theory. I transitioned from focusing on those natural evolutionary and hereditary beginnings of our species, to shifting and acutely focusing on what it means to be human being at our current stage of evolutionary development.  I will be  spending a significant amount of time (i. e. posts) on what I have experienced and learned about being a human at both the personal (Self) and interpersonal (Belonging) levels.  I will discuss human nature (human genome), and what it means to be a human being. In many ways, I could make a case that the Theory of Balanceology has been designed as a philosophical and psychological study of human nature. It is a study where I superimpose Nature on human nature. I have come to realize that homo sapiens have our foundations and origins in Nature. I emphasize that some understanding of Nature and human nature is indispensable in any attempt to comprehend human behavior, and especially important for us to understand our own behaviors. I think most of us are fairly ignorant about human nature. It has taken me a lifetime to better understand the human condition and my own nature. I now know that if I had an earlier appreciation of human nature, it would have made it easier for me to traverse life. I make a case for, and I recommend that if a person aims to succeed in life it is beneficial to learn the inexorable rules of Nature, the unstoppable rules of human nature, and the inculcated rules that direct one’s own life. My interest in human nature revolves around human inborn needs, human psychology, human emotions, human behaviors, and the very manner in which we integrally develop our worldview and philosophically arrange our world. I now have a better understanding of Friedrich Nietzsche saying, “human all to human.”  (1887)
