7. i think the things we other ppl over r taught, but i think the tendency to divide ppl

into us/other is inherent. and sadly necessary. good from bad is important info.

it's the part where there get to be stereotypes, and where we dont judge ppl as individuals where the bullshit starts.
carl sagan likes to talk about the human tendency to 'remember the hits, and forget the misses'.
aka cognitive dissonance. perception is so sketchy, and reality so complex.

here's a biological fact, tho. babies whose mothers, whose early life, is full of stress, grow up to be the kind of people you need to be to live on the edge. fast twitch muscles and big amygdalas.
well cared for mothers and babies grow up to be poets and artists and thinker. and accepting. w greater development in the so-called 'higher' regions of the brain. and fine motor control.
it also helps not to beat them, and give them tbis.

it all comes down to how well we care for the next generation. always.
