Men innately prefer to mate with young, nubile women.

Women have evolved to seek high-status men.

Men are hard-wired to have a strong jealous reaction to sexual infidelity.

Women react to emotional infidelity.

Parents are more likely to abuse stepchildren than their genetically related children.

These assumptions about the hard-wiring of the human mind are being questioned by researchers.

Faith is hardwired into our genes?

Hardwired maybe, but fuses can blow. Hence tears.

We can talk about things that don't exist, but what's the point?

Rick,
What if we talk about things that do exist and matter ?
How about Ouspensky´s "Psychology of Man´s Possible Evolution" ?
Or Ken Wilber´s Transpersonal Psychology ?
Or Gurdjieff´s ideas on evolution of consciousness ?
Any other suggestions ?

Vertical or horizontal ?

In his new book Boomeritis, Ken Wilber writes that psychologists who track adult lifespan development find that most individuals go through a series of major transformations from birth to adolescence, whereupon transformation tends to taper off. Although many horizontal translations occur, which are more like an expansion of the same kind of experience and information over and over again, the vertical transformations to higher levels tend to stop completely.
From age 25 to around 55, very few vertical transformations take place. It is almost impossible to get an adult human being to transform. Transformation is not a major topic of discussion in our educational system and in our culture. It is not a part of the common culture in which we live.

Most of people may feel quite satisfied with their "horizontal translations", and would ask why should they strive for or aim at vertical transformation ? What are the benefits of it ?

Spiral Dynamics Theory of Human Development

"What I am proposing is that the psychology of mature human being is an unfolding, emergent, oscillating, spiral process, marked by progressive subordination of older, lower-order behavior systems to newer, higher-order systems as man´s existential problems change." Dr. Clare Graves

evolutionary psychology can be depressing to learn at times especially with regards to male-female interactions. much of the pick-up community capitalizes on female's natural leanings towards for example men who show pre-selection by other women, leader of all men, and protector of loved ones. it's interesting to learn about evolutionary psychology and potentially exploit it for your own benefit, but you have to remember the "naturalistic fallacy" - how things are are not always how things should be. for example, people will usually show aggression when they get mad, but society attempts to correct this through more diplomatic terms.

"Undeveloped" is the word.
