hey i have been recently thinking about something (this isnt intended as a catch-all but at least something to give some thought to and hopefully something to be expanded on further in some way by somebody clever enough who reads it) people post puberty become increasingly sexual thus influencing their behavior and decision making patterns. sexuality can ultimately be condensed as the desire to pass on the genes you possess in your body to humanity and the desire to accept the genes of another person(s) who is filtered and judged as being worthy of also passing on their genes to humanity. so basically.... your decions are greatly centered around thinking about different ways to promote yourself and judging others in the same way. so puberty, i argue, forcibly pushes people into becoming highly self promoting and also highly judgmental. this is the process which largley stimulates people into seeking power,wealth, and beauty. it makes people become ambitious businessmen, beauty pageant contestants, basketball players etc this would make sense in an evolutionary sense because the more humans are concerned with putting forth the best possible versions of themselves, and in turn judging others in such a way as to expect only the best possible versions from them too, ultimately then causes humans that are currently basing the large part of their behaviors and decisions around this structure to create increasingly (at least this is the intent) productive and superior human beings through the process of reproduction. essentially, only the very best will be good enough. so, you are commanded to promote yourself increasingly towards this ideal and to judge others according to the way they measure up against this ideal also. this only seems to make sense when people are in the stage of their lives to come together and have children. all of this of course with it in mind to create the best possible children. and when you think about it, this whole entire larger process of creating highly self promoting and highly judgmental people seems to be the best way to select the best mates to come together and create the best children. but what happens when people start to age? the process of aging is interesting because for many animals - it never occurs. for example crocodiles reach puberty and stay in a state of eternal virility until they die. they dont actually ever degrade or show any signs of aging in the way that humans do. i argue that the process of aging is necessary for humans as a way of making them biologically invalid/biologically irrelevant on purpose. this seems insane at first but consider this can it be that existing in a state, which causes your behavior to become highly self promoting and highly judgmental, actually become destructive to the rest of humanity if sustained excessively? does this process - which creates highly self interested and highly exclusive humans beings - if allowed to remain in this state excessively, create a species which collectively possesses the maturity level and narcissism of a 17 year old boy/girl? how effective could this species really be?
