It was a joke, now I hope everyone saw that it was a joke. I don`t want to have to write and apology too... Again...

I recommend the following book:

The Adapted Mind: Evolutionary Psychology and The Generation of Culture

The first part of the book deals straight with the evolution and adaptations that lead to the current human brain. Evolutionary psychology has quite a few holes but it is plausible enough.

Your use of monkey, reptile, and human parts of the brain are a little misleading but I see your point (it`s technically wrong but people can get the picture I suppose). The brain is not segregated as you might think ... this is a leftover from older theories for the development of the brain. The human brain doesn`t technically have new or old parts as you suggest. Humans are not chimera with a part here and a part here. The majority of the brain works as a whole, (by the way also we use more than 10 percent of the brain as well) - another leftover.

I could go further in depth into why your theory isn`t plausible if you would like (in a clear academic way). But, I am attempting to tone down my responses and make them a little more pithy ( to avoid flak ).

But, it does perhaps help to think of the brain in such away even if it is wrong or technically misleading to how the brain actually physically works. ( in an evolution psychology paradigm)

But, you seem to have some background in psychology, you might just be dumbing it down a bit for the forum. Not sure which is the case. Intersting enough though, thanks for posting it.

My honor and or self respect is in my actions, if I failed to protect what is precious to me, I can have no honor or self respect.

What others show or don`t show me is well just people being human it is not something to really get worked up about. It boils down to getting your feelings hurt if you wish to really fight (physically)over something as trivial as someone disrespecting you. Gang bangers do that, fighting for respect or "street cred" or whatever, true warriors protect and battle for the right reasons (although they may also enjoy doing so ).

A few exchanges of heated words are not worth fighting over physically, you don`t have to necessarily like the person you protect, but their lives have worth and value and are precious baring that they aren`t evil or viscious creatures more base than a wild dog.

What is preicious is simply the lives people have that are worth living.

I view warriorship simply as follows: Protecting what is precious to you, and the willingness to put your life on the line for it or them.

For me this means protecting my friends and family, my students, my teachers, my current neighbors, and generally life in general ( I would probably put my life on the line for a cute puppy). Protecting what is worth saving and meaningful. This includes relationships and special bonds I have to certain people, without these bonds I think most of life is meaningless.

I don`t care about things - I care about people... Even if it means being "harsh" sometimes...

I think this is what it means to have the righteous heart of a warrior, anyone one can learn to fight, but it takes a certain kind of heart to fight for the right reasons.

Rob

Your a fine example of leadership there chief! I see the point of your apology, but also sometimes people spin (either in their own heads or else where) what ever they read in directions they want to ...

Thanks but your apology offends me
Are you going to apologize for your apology now.

I guess I will never understand "true" politics.

It's probably better that way, most people really don't care and won't do anything differently anyway. It might be better just to let this post drift off towards some distant shore.


For every person that cares - 50 people don't and the new ones are created everyday.

Nice article! The daily grind of training is very important, I wonder how many actually do it on a regular or semi-regular basis...

Blain,

Will you be driving from the Kashiwa area, take Route 3 in Noda (that is the road that passes by atago station) it is just 2 or three lights away from the Jusco on Route 16.

Band Practice! Cool where do you play? Mr. KISS FAN
