Of men and mice - how we're all prewired for growth

All living organisms are initially wired to proliferate to every ecological niche they successfully can exploit, no matter if we are talking about a petri dish of bacteria or a group of mice. As humans, we are initially wired the same way, but we have options.


The little devil in our head that wants MORE

Coming Soon: why we are wired for growth like all living organisms..This article shows that all life strives for more resource consumption until an equilibrium (or a downside event) kicks in. Also, we explain how our brain chemistry plays into this looking for more status, novelty and rewards - and how, with the ubiquitus availability of energy, these brain processes have become wired to physical resource consumption. Ultimately, we explore how the same positive triggers can be used in a more beneficial way.
