While writing the last post re CIG, I remembered hearing something about how behaviours evolved. The distinction was between traits that benefit the individual and traits that benefit the social group.
I cannot exactly remember where I heard this – maybe it was the book ‘the man who couldn’t stop’ or whether it was on the radio.
the point I want to make is that given the nature of this enquiry (a bit like a dream with the relation between consecutive topics/ideas being one of similarity rather than logical sequence)
I must note the ideas as and when I come across them.
Otherwise I forget the reference and context of the idea.
