THE SELFISH GENE

The Ultimate Survival Kit

Scientists (The Selfish Gene, Richard Dawkins 1987, et altri) have been able to discover and evidence base a particular gene which commonly is referred to as the selfish gene. The negative connotation of the word causes a stir, since most of us wish to appear unselfish and caring. And sometimes we are. But without the gene which conditions the survival of all species we would not exist.

The Agape governing people in different forms and content is a hereditary set up to ensure compassion, comfort, generosity and mercy based primarily on the selfish agent to safeguard the species´ reproduction and survival in a biological and social context. It guarantees the instinct and capacity to struggle or cooperate to survive. It will, as far as the conditions allow it, take command when a species is on the verge of extinction or facing an imminent threat. As a social and behavioral phenomenon it is referred to as the survival instinct or self defense.

PRO FORMA SINE CONTENTUS: Vanity Fair Revisited

 

 

 

PRO FORMA SINE CONTENTUS

Flawless or Useless


The idiosyncracy and the quest for flawlessness may preoccupy perfectionsist or linguistic purists, often in combination with a Compulsive Obssessive Disorder, a halt in the anal phase or an emotionally draining need of self assertiveness. To be fair, the efforts to be as precise as possible is a must in science and in verbal or written communication with regards to messages of great importance.

 

The current surgical or chemical cosmetic boom for physical perfection encompassing minors of age to the elderly of both genders is resting on ideals displayed in tabloids and fashion magazines, all of them photo shopped transformations beyond recognition of the object portrayed.
