Born Killers


brrain

Are we all sons and daughters of KILLERS!

Yes, a rather harsh statement though, arguably, there is some truth to this observation.

Dating back to days of primordial-man, the male of the species, given strength of stature relative to that presumed of his female counterpart, assumed the roll of hunter-gatherer and protector of the clan unit from predators. This killer instinct fueled by high levels of testosterone, though tempered over time, remains within our genetic heredity. Frankly, we are the direct descendents of those whom the `killer instinct’ has and arguably still is, an essential component to survival.

In consideration to this hypothesis, one need recognize the psychological implication(s) associated with, over the millennia, by male characterization as `machismo’, principally derived from the demands imposed on him.  A role ultimately proven as successful, amongst other obvious factors, given a global population of over six-billion humans today.

History supports the notion that Man as in `Male’, is imbued with a propensity to be aggressive and harsh or, the staunch defender, protector, when faced with conflict. As implied above; it is inherent in his evolutionary DNA. However, in light of 21st century advances is this established, historical  role of `Male’ still relevant? Is it time for a new era of `feminism’  to assume a more commanding role in shaping human consciousness on a global scale?

Female participation in regions of organization and position of power to decide, presently dominated and heralded as the Male’s role, is on the increase.  Globally, women are taking and occupying relevant, leadership roles in all facets of human life as politicians and chiefs of commerce and industry.

In the period leading up to the much hyped world altering events of Dec. 21st 2012, many  mystics and astrologist promoted the notion that post 2012, a gradual transition of non-physical consciousness from left-brain (male) to right-brain (female) will commence and promulgate into the century.  Unfortunately, statistically, this has not materialized especially in the northern hemisphere as depicted by the following: Source: Grant Thornton International Business Report 2012

Possibly the first clue failure to the notion that Females will assume a greater leadership role in world affairs manifest with the failure of Hilary Clinton to win the leadership nomination during 2012 United States Democratic Party Presidential Primary. Nor was she considered (or possibly refused) the position of Vice-President but then became the United States Secretary of State and subsequently retired to John Kerry in early 2013. It is rumored that Clinton will run for nomination in the 2016 Primary.

In the ensuing period other nations have observed a significant percentage of women in leadership positions. Possibly most surprising of these is Russia leading all major nations at 46 percent versus Canada and the United States combined, at 18 percent. The global average is 21 percent.

Going beyond the prophetic notions of mystics and astrological cosmic prediction, in the end, the ultimate question truly is: whether the leadership of nations, corporations and human organizations by either women or men and, the notion of right versus left brain consciousness attributed to both respectively, has significance in the performance and product of such leadership?

Several peer reviewed studies have been conducted to address this question and their findings suggest the differences on the whole as in-conclusive. Principally the assignment of predominately right-brain function to women versus left-brain to men, is unsupported. Factors such as contextual environment play a significant role in responses given by either gender.

For example `A self-assessment Internet survey was conducted by Brack and Zhang on Neuro-politics.com ‘  assessing Mean Left versus Right brain responses of Liberal, Moderate and Conservative Males versus Females produced  the following results:

[Abbreviations: Female Liberal (FL), Female Moderate (FM), Female Conservative (FC), Male Liberal (ML), Male Moderate (MM), and Male Conservative (MC).]

To fully explore the question goes beyond the scope of this essay and a general search of the Internet will produce significant results to ameliorate the subject.  To gain a full explanation of the variances presented by the above charts follow this link:

To conclude, it is suggested that whether males or females dominate position of power at any level of human civilized organization, ultimately it is the humanity within them to overcome the inherent, human propensity to extort any element of human emotion and psychology upon their fellow humans. Only time and record of history remains to know the truth to the suggestions we are born KILLERS.

I am in search of anyone maybe  knowing the Artist to this lithograph. I purchased in Cape Cod back in the 90’s – The artist signing is a bit ambiguous but maybe: `Sable ` or Gable’ date <1977>

E-Joke!


ee

Electrified ether emits endless, euphonious, eruptions;
energizing existences’ experiencing explicit, erratic, extended elation endlessly exhibited;
eventually, erroneously, elucidating epitaphs eloquently espoused;
egregiously, expunging evolutionary entity’s existence evidence;
embarrassingly!

Life-Path


lifepath

As I walked this cold winter’s day I encounter a humble looking man wheeling with difficulty on the snow and ice laden side-walk, a tattered store shopping cart filled with age-weathered odds and ends. To avoid the narrowing passage-way I raised my hand to indicate my alternate path to which he took as a sign of acknowledgement and, reacted with a quite hello. Sizing up the stranger, wearing a dirt-stained hooded winter coat, he looked to be a man of the street, possibly homeless. We both stopped momentarily if not only long enough for me to gaze into his eyes and observe the hardship pained on his unshaven and age-creased face and, to my astonishment, presuming the harshness of this man’s life-journey, he smiled exposing his failing, decaying teeth, reflective of his beaten state and likelihood of much pain. In those few brief moments of encounter two main thoughts came to mind: firstly, how one who shows all outward signs of a dark, humble and difficult life could/would react to such a brief encounter with another, with a smile and, second; to question if each human, life-journey presents situations of, or by, our making or, a path to fulfill a preordained destiny.

Information’s Gain


 

The long faded echo messaging drum-beat
Surpassed by nervous chatter dots to dash
Coursing frequency wave to hard wires’ distant path
Base characters to evolution for information’s’ gain
Unbinding the limits to dictionary of meaning
Letting loose creativeness of unstructured rules
To transcend into eloquence of the pragmatic
Yes versus No binary ethereal communication
Surpassing efficacy of mind-thought brought to word

reality asserts itself


Borrowing from The Real New Network’s (trnn.com) interview series titled: REALITY ASSERTS ITSELF and, in reaction to a new series of interviews titled: Hedges and Binney on Obama NSA guidelines – Reality Asserts Itself Pt.1 :

Reality Asserts Itself

An increasingly disturbing Reality, not to belie
Though a subversive body of exaggerated wealth
A global-cabal, is adamant to try.

The role of political national governance
Goes beyond the pale;
This duly elected, legislative body,
Increasingly considers humanity a viable sale.

The unabashed power of the central few
Gather with public eyes wide shut;
To discuss secretively, what next to do,
While the mass-consumer digs deeper, a debt-laden rut.

Conspiratorial voices clamber to sound the alarm
Of the growing tyranny of a global fascist regime;
Producing irrefutable evidence of truth to freedom’s harm;
While mainstream media stays lost, promoting their delusional dream.

Technological distractions designed to placate a disturbing reality
To counter any mass-ambition to take-a–stand, to fight;
The growing dissolution of individual freedoms and liberty
Questioning: Where will it all lead, what end is in sight?
