Beginnng to read Matthew D. Lieberman's new book Social: Why our Brains are Wired to Connect I found myself rather shaken by its opening premise: human brains have been shaped by natural selection to occupy themselves with social considerations in their natural state of rest. What Lieberman calls the default setting of the brain uses exactly the same areas of activity as those of social intelligence. His arguments are rather convincing and for some reason it gave me a sense of fear to think that our mental awareness is centred around social connectivity.

Reflecting upon this fear I realized that my social pessimism (bordering on misanthropy) was the basis of my misgivings. I admittedly have a negative outlook towards the social constructs of today, due to the opinion that we don't manifest enough human consideration. Our society seems to be geared towards material gain and artificial human rights. Trying to rationalise my apprehension made me realise that once again science is giving humanity a chance to correct its course. Understanding that millions of years of Evolution has shaped our minds to navigate the delicate and complicated waters of interrelationships should enthuse us to harmonise society. If we want to maintain that all people are of equal standing we have yet to demonstrate it to ourselves. It is asked of us by Evolution.
