Launch date: October 4, 214: The Survival of the Sexiest by the Dr. A.I. Strong
MultiCore Triad One: Manifesto, The Survival of the Sexiest, and E-TEAM.
Evolutionary principles not only account for the origins and natural progression of life, but also Human behavior. We need to understand natural selection, social selection, and especially social selection involving sex and mating choices. You are here because of your parents’ choices for each other, or because of their extended families’ choices, or both.
Only by studying sexual selection, natural selection and, now, technological selection, can we really know who we are as individuals, friends, families, co-workers, cultures, societies, nations and as a Species.
No matter what your belief system, we evolved. Call it intelligent selection or design if you want.
It comes as no surprise that evolutionary and behavioral psychology are the ultimate descriptions of 7 billion evolved beings.
Yet evolutionary psychology and behavioral psychology only really began to dominate research in psychology, and then economics, over the last two or three decades.
Most college and university psychology curricula lack extensive evolutionary psychology studies, and the subject is almost non-existent in the Humanities, the Arts, and Social Sciences– yet it readily explains them.
There is next to nothing in K-12 on evolutionary psychology. It is hard enough to get basic biological evolution taught in our middle and high schools, which is considered a fact by scientists the world over and mandated by the US Government. Teaching “sexual” anything in such schools is controversial.
We at the MultiCore emphasize evolutionary psychology as a “core plus” subject, and in particular sexual selection as it pertains to our psychological make-up and behavior.
From the understanding of our brains and patterns of behavior that arose from primates, we are selected primarily for physical perception and survival; courtship, mating and reproduction; and innumerable other forms of adaptive socialization.
We feed ourselves and our family, and spend the rest of our time mating, child-rearing, and forming a variety of complex social contracts. We excel at manipulating our environment for shelter and tool-making. We excel at mutually cooperating, or competing with and manipulating each other, to satisfy needs and desires. We are complex, social, spiritual, religious, gene-driven–and sexy– primates.
For the vast preponderance of evolutionary time we lived in small, nomadic tribes in the wild. Starting about 10,000 years ago that all changed. Urbanization increased social complexity at unprecedented scales as most hunters and gathers fell to new farmer/warrior civilizations.
“Sexy” becomes a term much broader than physical sex appeal. In The Survival of the Sexist, Dr. A.I. Strong of the MultiCore proposes that our “sexiness” package now includes material possessions, wealth, and technology as well as looks and behavior, and a number of heritable, universal personality traits deemed attractive by most everybody. There are six “sexy” ones, the “sexy six that we find most attractive, and these are common to most every culture.
We display our “biological fitness through our sexiness” which includes our potential parenting and teaching skills. Our mutual exchange of our displays influences our selection of the “sexiest” for friendship, co-workers, potential mates, future extended families, and entire cultures and societies. Such sexual selection arguably becomes the most powerful modern evolutionary force.
In Survival of the Sexiest, we learn about our inherited capabilities and dynamics, how they are shaped by our experience, and then use that to work towards a positive, respectful, and meaningful style of life. We use this knowledge to improve our relationships and achieve our other desired outcomes. We must be “sexy” in many different formats, to be attractive and agreeable to many, and to be good parents, and to play out our roles in other social roles.
Survival of the Sexiest tells you what you must consider when perceiving and displaying various forms of sexual and parental fitness. Survival of the Sexiest becomes “Proliferation of the Successful” in a modern day competitive and cooperative planetary free-for-all. Survival of the Sexiest is your ultimate guide to Humanity. Arm yourself, get your sexiness on, and good luck!
The Power of Sexual Selection: PBS Video “Why Sex”
“Sexy Chimp Darwin” hypothesis: Likely high concentration of zooplankton to feed on. Result: Party: Massive sex orgy, males jump out of water, called “breaching” to impress females, then proceed to swim them down for sex, which taxes 60 to 90 seconds. (I timed it once). “Jump high and fly and get the babe strategy.” “Watch this Breach Babe.” Breaching proves biological fitness. We would expect mostly the males to breach, according to mate selection theory. You don’t jump and fly if you are sick. The females chose the high flyers to mate with while they chow down on a little zooplankton to get them in the mood, and fatten them up for their pregnancy. Wow, isn’t nature wonderful. Whoops, the Manta Rays are becoming endangered……
From wiki: mating can be a little rough, females get a few scars….
Mating takes place at different times of the year in different parts of the manta’s range. Courtship is difficult to observe in this fast-swimming fish, although mating “trains” with multiple individuals swimming closely behind each other are sometimes seen in shallow water. The mating sequence may be triggered by a full moon and seems to be initiated by a male following closely behind a female while she travels at around 10 km (6.2 mi) per hour. He makes repeated efforts to grasp her pectoral fin with his mouth, which may take twenty or thirty minutes. Once he has a tight grip, he turns upside-down and presses his ventral side against hers. He then inserts one of his claspers into her cloaca where they remain for sixty to ninety seconds. The clasper forms a tube which channels sperm from the genital papilla; a siphon propels the seminal fluid into the oviduct. The male continues to grip the female’s pectoral fin with his teeth for a further few minutes as both continue to swim, often followed by up to twenty other males. The pair then part. For some reason the male almost always grasps the left pectoral fin, and females often have scars that illustrate this.:8–9”
