 Book--Evolutionary Psychology

Hello Newsgroup:

Can you imagine a book on evolutionary psychology written by a geologist??  Please take
a look.  The book is called "Managing the Tribe". It also has something to say about
evolutionary biology.  The first two chapters can be found on my home page at the
following URL:

Are you surprised that a geologist would get involved in such a venture?  You shouldn't
be.  The logic goes like this: (i) geologists study evolution; and (ii) and human
biology, psychology and physiology are all products of evolution.  I have spent many
years (18 or so) evaluating the functions of evolutionary designs represented in the
fossil record.  "Managing the Tribe" simply looks at human psychology as just another of
nature's elegant designs.  It assumes that even seemingly illogical aspects of human
psychology, such as depression, are part of an elegant behavi{*filter*}guidance system.

Please take a look and let me know what you think.

I would love to talk to anyone who studies Psychopharmacology from a
evolutionary psychological point of view.  This is our hope for
consistent, enduring happiness without compulsion.  Serotonin,
Dopamine, Oxytocin and the like are intimately related to evolution's
tragic yet beautiful human designs and her power over us that compells
us to be gene bags rather than happy planetary dancers.

Please, please, please add to this thread. I have little more than the
notion of profound importance right now.  I searched the two subjects
together and have found nothing.  I was delighted to find the subject
of evolutionary psychology on a psychobiology news group and will no
doubt revel in the information that this new book provides.  More
please!!

   The Mentifex mental architecture preserves massive parallelism
throughout the brain-mind even "around corners" during orthogonal
branching.   The modular Mentifex (Latin for "mind-maker") design
permits substitution of advances in component AI modules of mind.
The public-domain algorithm for machine intelligence explains how
primordially dedicated sensory fibers broke loose in evolution to
provide a substrate first for arrays of concepts and subsequently
for the ontogenesis of linguistic structures in humans or robots.
