i have read your text, the humans might need some
redefining, but i'm not going to speculate on that.
i'm a fan of the behavioral sciences, which neuro is merely
beginning to adress, the others don't adress it at all.
This science explains at the highest level, from a human perspective
our emitted functionality/behaviour.
Nobody escapes this in everyday human-human reallife interraction.
We all have desires, looking for a solution.
There are obvious, common patterns of stimulation->response
which this science adresses.
Humans that have taken a few steps in the walk of life, combined with
intellect usually have this science 'built in' to a degree.
Honesty/ethic/moral is subjective and that comes from deep within.
To be able to conduct the walk of life without too much fuzz one
has to temporarily on occasion, put aside one's deeper beleives.
A human claiming to behave otherwise, is usually a lier.
What i'm getting at here is that everything & everybody is at sale
, it's about specifying the desire and 'bying' the solution
In order not to create any storm here, i will balance things by
saying that notions like lasting joy or love and notions of that nature
isn't usually for sale. But even this is a borderline,
power/money is sexy, this is nothing new under the sun.
So the keyword might be 'lasting'
A man of your caliber (without me actually knowing)
should be aware of all this and without inflicting any lasting
scratches to your ethic/moral, find paths to obtaining your goals.
