Human Nature

Which is the human nature theory accepted nowadays?

[ 7/10/20 ]

Depends who you are talking to.

For someone like me, who trained as a biochemist, has studied reasonable amounts about mathematics, logic, psychology, history, logics, and complexity – then the answer is:

It is complex.

Every different individual has a complex nature that is partially determined by many different factors:
Genetics;
Culture;
Experience;
Understanding;
Choices (past and present);
Context (physical, psychological, cultural, emotional).

All of these are important factors in us being what we are, and in the degrees of choice we perceive as being present in any particular context.

Any one of those factors already has more information stored about it in libraries than any human could possibly read in any normal lifetime. Really complex – seriously so !!!

Human beings are the most complex things we yet know of in this universe.

I have been studying the systems that make us what we are for over 50 years, and I have more open questions than closed ones; and the vast majority of people have never begun to consider many of the questions I find interesting and important.

And my understanding is built upon some levels of fundamental uncertainties in all relationships – so it is a very different sort of thing to what most people encounter in their education.

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
