Recent astonishing #fossil
discoveries, particularly those of the 4.5 million year old Ardipithecus, evidence not only humanity’s cooperative heritage but confirm that it was the love-indoctrination process that made us human.
ancestors developed our altruistic, unconditionally selfless, cooperative and loving moral #instincts
through the nurturing-based, love-indoctrination process.
While a mother’s maternal instinct to care for her offspring is selfish (as #genetic
traits normally have to be for them to reproduce and carry on into the next generation), from the infant’s perspective the #maternalism
has the appearance of being selfless. From the infant’s perspective, it is being treated unconditionally selflessly—the mother is giving her offspring food, warmth, shelter, support and protection for apparently nothing in return. So it follows that if the infant can remain in infancy for an extended period and be treated with a lot of seemingly altruistic #love,
it will be indoctrinated with that selfless love and grow up to behave accordingly—and over many generations that behaviour will become instinctive because genetic selection will inevitably follow and reinforce any development process occurring in a species; the difficulty was in getting the development of unconditional selflessness to occur in the first place, for once it was regularly occurring it would naturally become instinctive over time. And being semi-upright from living in trees, and thus having their arms free to hold a dependent infant, it was the primates who have been especially facilitated to develop this nurtured, loving, cooperative nature. This is how our primate ancestors developed our moral #conscience.
