I posted “Gregarious Instincts” earlier today. It just occurred to me that the transition from friendly affinity to sexual arousal might be trivial. Evolution is lazy. I expect instincts to overlap in terms of implementation as much as possible. I think the neural signatures (activated neural pathways) of gregarious instincts (GIs) must be very similar to those of the sexual instincts (SIs).
I thought comparative pictures of body language, particularly facial expression, would likely be insightful. I had to find out. Check this out.
As you can see, even babies have gregarious instincts. That suggests GIs are quite primitive. Sexual instincts require and define biological maturity. I think SIs piggyback on the circuitry of GIs.
Connection is connection is connection.
There is the dark side to gregarious instincts.
GIs are a medium to take as much as to give. They are the medium to convey charismatic authority, though a little playground rhetoric may be needed. GIs convey rhetorical authority to which sheeple will bond. Instead of being a king at court, try being the leader at recess because that is the level of genius and faith you and I are facing every damn day.
Sheeple do not sublimate their instincts to reason. What surprises me is how attentive adults are with the childlike connection of gregarious instincts. I wish I would have know about this earlier. It is powerful stuff. I suggest you study the detailed post and experiment.
