To Look into a Soul. 10) The rules of conduct and spirits .
We have stopped at the fact that the number of behavior programs in the ID archive is growing immensely. The groupings appear in the form of flocks or tribes. The flock allows you to save kilocalories of each individual by copying successful behavioral programs from each other. Basically, younger individuals copy the behavior programs of older individuals.
The uniform and synchronous programs of behavior in the pack become the rules of behavior that all members of the pack follow. Do like me! Behavior programs that provide rules of conduct should be kept in another department. And these programs of behavior are already directed by EGO. The development of the soul proceeded rapidly. The structures of behavioral programs and rules of conduct become more complex.
The rules of behavior began to form complex combinations and develop according to their own laws. They were their own in every flock. They were passed on through training and copying. Logical development leads to the unification of the rules of behavior.
The increase in the number of tribes and the competition between them gives a chance to survive for more united tribes. Cohesion is maintained, on the one hand, due to the emergence of hierarchy and aggression based on fear, on the other hand, those in which individuals interact better with each other, without turning to the alpha male each time, gain advantages .
On the basis of body movement, a new communication system emerges. Individuals can communicate and exchange information and commands. The development of this direction has advanced only with our ancestors. On one side of the muscles of the face and facial expressions. On the other hand, the complication and flexibility of a body capable of dancing.
Our ancestors gathered in the evenings around the fire and in the language of dance told each other about what was happening. The tribesmen agreed and approved, making guttural sounds. Fortunately, their throats have already collected many sounds that imitate birds and animals. Our p rarely already knew how to attract and scare away individuals of the animal world.
“ During such evenings, the Amets and the female just sit side by side, their eyes meet, they begin to alternately breathe on each other in a certain rhythm. It is sharing unique courtship signals. Instead , to dance in the physical space, these primates using the language of dance in the space of the imaginary, which create themselves, playing his thoughts. ” ( Jeffrey Miller “ Seducing the Mind “ .)
At this time, more experienced individuals for a successful hunt need information not only about lions and bison, but also about the behavior of their fellow tribesmen.
“ We survive and reproduce through constant interaction. It is not enough for people to know where the lions and bison run, it is much more important for them to find out who in the tribe hates whom, who sleeps with whom, who is reliable, and who cannot be relied on. ” ( Yuval Noah Harari “Sapiens. A Brief History of Humanity “).
The language of fiction allowed a person not only to surrender to the play of imagination, but to do it with the whole team. The ability to debate fiction is our unique program of behavior. For archiving, a third department necessarily appears in our model. Let’s call it mind.
New animals and people have appeared in our imagination. They began to develop and influence our programs of behavior and rules of conduct. But more on that next time.
