New world formula,
(of Everything (Human))
A complete research-guiding model of human history or evolution and all its problems and solutions
The world-famous, alas already deceased Prof. Steven Hawking was also one of those who researched a world formula or a theory of everything (ToE or TOE), a hypothetical total theory (Wikipedia).
Similarly, Prof. Richard Wrangham et al in 1999 in CURRENT ANTHROPOLOGY, dared to outline a complete (hi-)story of the MANKIND story or evolution. The comments (for example by Kristen Hawkes) criticized this story. What could a less error-strewn research-guiding story, theory of everything (human) look like?
The new STORY:
(Not later than) 4 million years ago, loss of large canine teeth, which serve the (threatened) rival battles for the purpose of monopolizing women, as is typical with monogamists and harem owners, such as gorillas.
About 2 million years ago, the gradual loss of fur probably occurred because of the evolution towards the jogger in the sunny savannah, the dependence on the sun for vitamin D3 production and on movement increased.
Wrangham also mentioned the decline in gender dimorphism that took place about 2 million years ago. Men and women developed almost the same size and weight, and thus moved farther away from the women-monopolizer type á la gorilla (over twice as heavy a fighting machine as his women ...).
In the last several million years, genital growth of (pre-) hominids has grown from the tiny size for gorillas in the direction of the giant size of the genitalia of bonobos.
Infanticide is a great source of loss of resources.
Counterstrategies (Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, Kristen Hawkes) are important. The result was, that all men had no other choice than to behave fatherly to the children. Men took care of every child in a fatherly manner, – and women no longer killed each other´s babies.
The uncooperative chimpanzees often kill foreign group(s) (members). Bonobos and hominids, which demonstrate a high degree of cooperation, cooperate more with the neighboring groups. Mutual help and sexual contacts characterize the situation.
Bartering is invented, the FOXP2 gene spreads, speaking ability becomes more differentiated. Traders (and/or seers (ancestors of television), storytellers etc. brought by them) relate true as well as the first invented, fantasy stories by the (possible) campfire.
Homo (mercator, mercantilis) sapiens is here!
Far commercially, invented 140 000 years ago (Prof. Friedemann Schrenk), made some problems more intense:
Are invented (error) memplexes (meme-memory behavior controlling memory content, Richard Dawkins) told with content such as: The people 10 km away are evil and bad and want to kill you..., then the trader sells more (primitive) weapons and becomes the market leader and determines the spreading of memes.
Peace gradually disappears!
When storytellers say that fighting, hurting and killing is frequent and normal, or the people are told memplexes in which this is the "moral of the story," imitating aggressors and their victims get into distress, are getting nervous and want to calm themselves down. So people buy more consumer goods such as alcohol and cigarettes as a compensation for their memetically suppressed peaceful life, while this trader then becomes the market leader.
Happiness gradually disappears!
If the trader himself says and believes that the consumer goods are made from the best raw materials and would be health-promoting, but in fact they are the most inferior, cheapest, most harmful, most easily procured raw materials that have been mixed together, then this trader will become the market leader and everybody will buy from him.
Health disappears gradually!
The evolutionary direction is thus partly reversed:
In the past, true memes led to evolutionary (reproductive) success. Today, in a world where virtually everyone is trading with everyone else (exchanging their own labor, services, products, etc.), error memes lead to evolutionary success, even where shamanistic services are being traded.
Feel-good notes, security feedback notes, etc. marked with a cross at each election or otherwise collected and health-cost curves of the health insurance companies, which together determine all profit distributions, would once again reverse the evolutionary direction:
The true meme-teaching and thus health-improving doctor would achieve greater profits and have more evolutionary success; the supermarket, whose regular customers give the best feel-good notes and rarely become ill, will have the greatest evolutionary success. And so on in all areas of society.
Similarly in the democratic system: Everyone who wants to be the Chancellor or Prime Minister of his country etc., can report to the Federal Statistical Office and Electoral Office. The electoral office invites representative voter samples to townhouses, e.g. 4 applicants speak 30 minutes and then the listeners vote. Those winning such competitions more frequently may challenge the Chancellor in the middle of the term of office. If the applicant wins this competition, there are early elections in the middle of the usual period with the usual TV duels.
Error mem(plex)es become rarer, truth memes more frequent. More competent state managers rule. The result is a world with much less war, terror, overweight, illness, lack of love, loneliness, depression, suicides, etc. Science would have proved to be the greatest service to mankind so far.
