Survival and reproduction are epiphenomena of life, reacting to mortality, and physical limitations.
This establishes mind/body dissonance that may develop into resentment and nihilism.
The driving impulse is Faustian: a desire to access objective spatial possibilities and convert them to subjective probabilities.
Space = possibility.
Matter/Energy = probability.
Desire – Eros – that depends on excess energies, accumulated out of need – Ananke – to organize the world in accordance with oneself.
Power – in the Nieatzchean context – expresses freedom, i.e., ability to perceive and realize ones potentials, i.e., inherent probabilities.
Power is to be able to choose what options one becomes aware of, so freedom is a tautology.
Intelligence is to be able to perceive options; wisdom to differentiate which ones are realizable, attainable; power is the measure of what can be attained, i.e., expansion of choices that can be chosen.
Omnipotence is the idealized ability to choose from an infinite amount of probabilities, presupposing omniscience. It is to say that one is absolutely free.
As such the physical, the body, is a constant reminder, to a conscious mind, of its body – past manifesting as presence – i.e., its inherited limitations, powerlessness, inability to perceive all options and, worse still, to attain what is perceived.
Nihilism's "solution" is to dismiss the physical – nature, past – as entirely illusory or insignificant.

Freedom, rather than survival is the driving impulse of life.

This is rather strange coming from Dutton...
So called "cuckoldry" is already part of the human manimal nature.
Marriage and monogamy were imposed ideologically - memetically - so as to incorporate as many males into the social system as possible - making them investors in the system rather than indifferent free-radicals that destabilize the system.

We notice such behaviour in chimpanzee social groups where females routinely sneak away for a "quickie" with a beta males so as to gain their allegiance and social aid.
Females mate with the dominant male - alpha - but are also impregnated by beta males, broadening their genetic investment.
Monogamy is the technological intervention, based on an ideological, moral, foundation, invented by males - paternalism - as to gain numerical advantages over their enemies.

In my essay "A Tenuous Defence of Monogamy" I get into my positions on when and how females are naturally inclined towards monogamy, not intentionally, willfully, but necessarily.
Synoptically...  
*Females are naturally inclined to be attracted to males which display superior genes - physical and mental superiority - in relation to the average within a given group.
*Females are socially oriented, their pragmatism, their genius, is social, so in-group relationships are all they think about.
*High I.Q. females will find it difficult to find a male who is their intellectual equal, let alone her superior. The higher her IQ the more difficult it will be, so if she is unable to compromise she will remain childless.
If she does find a male who is superior, or, her equal, she would be loyal because of the odds against finding a male that may offer her an equal or better alternative.
*Given the fact that females are prone to settle or make socioeconomic compromises - see how they often willingly settle for the beta - and given her proclivity to sperm sample, so as to not invest herself in one genetic lineage, a female that is unable to reproduce in her lifetime - given the ease of doing so - is usually a female with additional psychosomatic issues.
These factors may force her to come to compromises she is emotionally, egotistically, unable to make.
Mind/Body disparity leads to unfitness. High IQ low physical attractiveness, for example, leads to the necessity for compromises the mind is unable to make.
This is somewhat true for males, as well, and the so-called "incels"...but these are a very small minority with a pronounced feminine side.

Cuckoldry is more common among females of average ro low IQ.
Among physically and intellectually mediocre females compromises are easily made, and most often, they aren't compromising but indulging her natural hypergamy.
The beta provider becomes a basis from which she could exercise her sexual options.

The psychology of the male who tolerates being cuckolded is an entirely different subject.

Most modern humans have a Disassociative mindset, which represents greater concepts like Mind-Body Duality (Dualism), Blank-Slate Theory, Abrahamic Nihilism (self-annulment), Born-Again Christianity, Christian Apologetics (abolishment and 'forgiveness' of Sin), etc.

I interpret this as a stunted mentality which maybe genetic. Many people simply do not have the capacity to be "self-reflective" or self-conscious. They don't know what their "thinking-thing" inside of them is. This causes the phenomenon of people believing that "god speaks to them" through their subconscious and unconscious mind. Most simply don't understand how "their own" cognition works, because of this Disassociation or "mental block".

This also explains why and how most people are Disassociative when it comes to personal responsibility, accountability, and causality: innocence & ignorance (of Self). They leave 'judgment' to higher (moral) authorities, like religion and state, hypothetically. People act as they are instructed to, for the most part, but are surprised by themselves when they act not as they should, as they expect, and cannot reconcile when they think and believe not as they are intended or instructed to, resulting in cognitive dissonance.

In short, the average, normal, modern 'Human', is not in control of "Him/Herself", because the 'Self' is owned by another, a foreign entity, a Deity, God.


"Secularists" only pretend to be separated from the Abrahamism that spawned and conditioned their mentality over the course of centuries and millenniums now. They never gained 'freedom' from this system, in the distant past, so why would they now, in Postmodernity, suddenly and spontaneously, as-if they were capable or willing to do so?

People want to differentiate between two "Selves", the "real me" and the "ideal me".

The way I am, versus the way I wish the world and others would see me.

People then lie to themselves about this difference, and usually cannot reconcile or merge the two, because it requires an above-average intelligence with other factors, like humility, to understand, accept, and "move forward" from the fact that a person's position maybe very low, socially, average, or very high. Average and below intellect, cannot imagine how those of higher intellect perceive or judge him/her, because the Rationalization is far greater.

The average and lower person, cannot understand a Higher Moral Standard applied to himself.


This is why Morality is hierarchal, and requires levels of intelligence to understand position on such hierarchies.

For example,

A very intelligent person has a very high Standard of application. This could be applied to ...Science, or Art. But when it is applied to other people, then it becomes Moral and Ethical. Those who cannot consider many factors, or the very simple-minded who can only understand basic concepts, attuned more toward children (which is why Pop music and art are popular), do not have the ability to understand that higher Standard, and even more so is ignorant of any "Highest" Standard.

This is the mechanism by which hierarchies form, in any biological system or genus.


Authority is passed 'upward' until, hypothetically, somebody understands the highest Standard which appears 'Divine' to those at the very bottom....

Root of self-deciet and its necessity.
Brief overview.

-A female must overcome her flight/fight mechanism to allow a strange entity to penetrate her body.
To achieve this the female must become erotically - hormonally - intoxicated; she must become aroused or inspired/stimulated to enter a state of erotic intoxication.

-When and if ejaculation is successful the spermatozoa find themselves in a threatening environment. The vagina is a toxic place - the first line of defence - which has evolved a chemical defence against any foreign DNA., e.g., viruses, bacteria, etc.
If and when the spermatozoa reach the ovum - speed is of the essence because the female body is triggered to expel all intruders - the race is to enter the ovum before they are exterminated.

-Once inside the second phase of self-supression of autoimmune defences begins. The female body's automated defences must be chemically deceived to tolerate the multiplication of foreign cells.
As the foetus grows, combining two DNA strands - one known and the other unknown - the female experiences the usual affects of being infected. Morning sickness, for example, is a symptom of wanting to expel unwanted toxins from the body.
Self-deciept cannot fully deceive the body's autoimmune responses.
Here is the root of krypsis as a parasitical survival and reproductive strategy; a method of infesting a foreign body by intoxicating and synthesizing with it.
Genes<>Memes

-If and when the alien DNA is too contrary to the female's then the body aborts the foetus - depending on the female's ability to self-repress - deceive - her own automated defences.
More intoxicating, self-deceptive, chemical processes will successfully endure/tolerate more disparate genetic variations. The female's femininity, her eroticism, would indicate her inherited levels of self-intoxicating and self-decieving potentials - her reproductive fitness.

-The foetus is tolerated only long enough to reach a level that can sustain itself outside the female's body.
Gestation is externalized to be finalized, in more sophisticated species, because the female body is unable to tolerate alien cells from growing inside if her; the female form is unable to sacrifice its physical proportionality that facilitates other survival functions - so a foetus cannot exceed a certain size before it must be externalized to complete its gestation via weening.

Self-deception is part of the female specialized reproductive agency.
This is transferred to memetics - ideologies - adopting the feminine method in the form of linguistic intoxication and self-deception.
We also find memetic adaptations of krypsis: self-destroying ideologies concealed as self-promoting via the semiotic synthesis of incompatible motives in the form of obscurantism and mysticism.
Nihilism defines the most pronounced synthesis of contradictory motives as self-comforting, self-flattering, dogmas and ideologies. These are "gestated" in the mind by compartmentalizing disparate world-views - Orwellian newspeak - when two contrary ideals are simultaneously maintained in the same mind, just as when two different genes are synthesized in the same body to create a new organism.

The divide of right/left would be in alignment with the divide between masculine and feminine dispositions, determining what levels of self-deception an individual will produce to endure and to accentuate its performance.
Social integration requires self-repression, facilitated by self-deception.
The larger the group the more self-repression is necessary for harmonious integration.
As human groups grow - increasing in numbers and in heterogeneity - feminine dispositions of erotic intoxication and self-deception are made necessary - Feminization of Man.

Nihilistic dogmas/ideologies are the epitome of mind/body dissonance, requiring a degree of rejecting - repressing, deceiving - the body (brain) so as to tolerate negative ideologies/dogmas to exist in the mind.
The mind becomes a womb protecting a partially alien ideological foetus to gestate - this is compartmentalization, manifesting a feminine schizophrenia where cohesion is impossible - feminine mystique is feminine irrationality, Dionysian madness, from the perspective of a Apollonian male.
Linguistics is how it is externalized.

The reason the feminine is closest to existence - nature - is because the female represents these ordered/chaotic interactive (flux) energies.
The male mind struggles to order - to create cohesion, harmony - what the feminine intuitively accepts as existence - accepts the chaos as a necessary part of existence.
The male's struggle to create and preserve order seduces the female - intoxicates and triggers her to self-decieve, as a necessary aspect of her reproductive role.
Eroticism requires deception. The male presenting himself as more than what he is; the female presenting herself as less than what she is.

From Heraclitus ...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

...to von Clausewitze
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

...all is agon, struggle. Correction: Politics is war by other means since war is a given and politics is a human adaptation of this given state of becoming.
All is flux - interacting, conflicting.
Society is an extension/expression of biological struggles. Therefore, social constructs are nothing more than methods of reacting to this existential struggle to maintain and expand life and its options, i.e., power.
Example: gender is an extension, expression, of biologically determined - naturally selected - reproductive and survival specialization.
Evolution promotes mutations that offer an advantage, from the lowest to the highest, form, the less to the most sophisticated - from fight/flight binaries, following the paths of least resistance, towards more complex behaviours incorporating multiple motives and following paths of more resistance as a method of outperforming and competing.
Evolutionary Psychology offers explanations for psychologically evolved dispositions, degerming behaviours, choices, interactions.
Ideologies are extensions, projections, of these motives, movements - ideas given logos; ideas, concept, ideals projected, represented, shared, communicated semiotically Ideas are a synthesis of external/internal stimuli - body interreacting with world, existence; self relating to other, organism interacting with environment.

Memes = ideas, ideals, concepts - ideologies - memories represented semiotically, words/symbols/numbers.
Genes = experiences, interactions, events, - genealogies - memories represented by nucleotides, DNA.

Mind/Body = synthesis of experiential and inherited memories - first- and second-hand memories.

Becoming Disgusting
Fear/Anxiety is not disgust/repulsion, although the two are intentionally and methodically considered synonyms, so as to construct the victim psychology identifying all threats by describing them with their own feeling of fear, e.g., homophobe, xenophobe, and with their won reaction to a threat which is hate, e.g., misogyny. Here the defensive method is one of projection, inverting the relationship – knowledge of oneself is projected to make another comprehensible, using antipathy rather than sympathy.
Similarly, repulsion is an act of power rejecting what is judged as being toxic, or dangerous... or simply undesirable, unwanted, unnecessary, but the inverting method can also be used to repel a threat by making oneself toxic, undesirable, unwanted and unnecessary; self-preservation via a defensive strategy that utilizes the threat's own strength, preserving purity of motive, i.e., innocence, since the actor does not repel but makes itself repulsive. Its own fear/anxiety is projected as the threat's fear/anxiety which then repels it. The threatened one projects its vulnerability by becoming toxic or by imitating toxicity.
The pretence of being more dangerous, more toxic, than what one really is has become a common defensive strategy – imitating the markers that display danger, e.g., colouring, size, or toxicity, ugliness, deformity.
Self-Handicapping in nature is actual handicapping, displaying the individual's theoretical fitness. Disproportional antlers contradict the rule of symmetry and proportionality so as to outperform a competitor; sacrificing functionality for the sake of self-replication. Such displays are not faked. A peacock tail and deer antlers are an actual burden the male may not endure for long. We can then say that self-handicapping by becoming ugly, unattractive, useless, or toxic – genetically and/or memetically repulsive – would not be faked but would have to actually sacrifice fitness to preserve identity long enough to pass-on its genes/memes, and its unique reproductive strategy.
Survival of individuals is not nature's concern. Individuals are means to an end, viz., passing on genes or memes, before the inevitability of death erases them.
I can think of one group that has adopted a repulsive meme and has learned to thrive by being hated and victimized. Its greatest threat is being accepted and assimilated into another genetic and memetics group. Here being ideologically assimilated is similar to being physically consumed, therefore to prevent this it must make of itself toxic, repulsive, unpalatable. It lacks the power to repel so it must trigger the gag reflex in others – their fear/anxiety of concealed hatred must become a defensive accusation so as to cause a reaction that would consolidate its numbers.
Example: a woman who has suffered the disempowering violence of rape may adopt the behaviour of making herself repulsive, unattractive, or may adopt a very aggressive, angry disposition, as a way of preventing further aggression, knowing that she is too feeble to prevent it otherwise.

Disgust is one of a few immediate reactions to Fear.

The body recognizes the weakness and vulnerability of Fear, and leads to disgust with itself as-if a virus has invaded, because it provokes the same biological response.

Queasiness, creepiness, chest pain, paranoia, loss of bowel control, is directly related to Fear.

Females and emasculated males are more interested in maintaining stable social systems within which they can improve their status through manipulation, seduction, undermining, or feminine competitive strategies.
Masculinity is served by thinking outside the box, in this case the dominant socioeconomic system - the institutionalized establishment.
This is also why males are explorers and inventors that expand or alter convectional world-views, and females - including feminized males - are not.
Autism is hyper-masculinity due to some genetic or hormonal factor during gestation.
The absence of a feminine energy makes such males challenging to every kind of order, excluding their own - McGilchrist would say a psychology dominated by the left-hemisphere, Apollonian. Its inability to relate or to adapt to social systems, its inability to establish and maintain human relationships - alliances, sexual, friendships etc. - manifest a masculinity with no feminine balance.
Hyper-Femininity would be a psyche dominated by the feminine - emotion, intuition, instincts, neurosis - with no masculine order, no reasoning, no rationality, no ability to build and maintain systems, ergo feminization of man - postmodernism - signals the decline and end of a system, in this case of Americanism.

Vulnerability and how an individual deals with threats establish the two psychological dispositions.
a female's sexual role, making her vulnerable during intercourse and gestation, has adapted the feminine psychology.

Women saying they want a kind, nice, guy is bullshyte.
Feminine sexuality needs to be triggered by some degree of anxiety.
Intimidating males make her..."wet", despite what they think or believe or say.

A woman dreams of a brute - a stallion - she can tame, she can control, she can...ride.
Her sexual fantasy.

Why are they attracted to African, or Arab immigrants?
Because they remain masculine in a way the emasculated Europeans - castrated and lobotomized after decades of Hollywood and Americanism - has not.

It also should let us know that many of them could care less about whatever genetic legacy they might hold, they are willing to throw it all away to settle with a Black. I got criticized once for pointing out the disloyal nature of women compared to men and got told about White male/Asian female couples, which i rarely ever have seen in my times in the Northeastern and Southern US, but i have seen plenty of Black male/White female couples especially in the military.

Now that i think about it, most of the race-mixed couples Ive seen were disproportionately Black male/White female.

Why is the species homo sapient prone towards superstitions and magical thinking?
Why is this species the only one that can suicide, or is prone to self-annihilate, deny that it exists, and reject itself altogether?
Where does this god, spirit, agency come from and why does it develop into a world-wide conviction?
Why is man the only species that denies its own agency?

Self-Consciuosness is the source.
Nihilism is how a defensive attitude, attempting to protect the ego - lucid consciousness - from itself.

I give my brief explanation [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
It needs fleshing out, but the skeleton is there.

Definitions...
"Addiction" = "any repeated behaviour, substance related or not, in which a person feels compelled to persist, regardless of its negative impact on his life and the life of others..."..."compelled," as if possessed by a demon, an external force, a foreign agency.
Back in the day they would call this being possessed by evil spirits, or demons, or the devil himself.
We see here why free-will, to any degree, must be rejected.
The "victim" is taken over, cannot do anything about it, cannot resist, cannot control himself/herself.
All the negative consequences have to be unloaded upon an-other, even if this contradicts the idea of no-free-will.
The accusation is placed upon an ambiguous concept, an idea....call it spirits, god/Devils....or universe, or absolute order.
Auhtority...an absent father comes back as a redeemer, an ideology, a concept.
The lost child gives itself to it - surrenders to it.
The individual could not have not behaved, chosen, judged, as he/she did. Fatalism.
It was all inevitable, part of some cosmic plan, yet these same psychotics never fail to find someone to accuse, something by which to feel victimized, unjustly wronged, made to suffer.
They are "compelled" to do so as well. The accused does have agency, it is free-willed, somehow, otherwise why accuse it?
Victims.

Addiction is to body what obsession is to mind.
Here is how the vid separates the two:
"...the question is who is in charge, the individual or the addiction..."...the mind, and its willful ego, or the body and its impulsive needs/desires?
Genes or memes?

The "individual" here refers to the lucid conscious self, the ego. It is the only acceptable willful agency.
The "addiction" refers to the obsession, the behaviour which cannot be controlled - the impulse, the physical, the body.
But if there is no free-will how could it be "stopped"....the individual is not truly an individual, it is entirely impulse, obsession/addiction...and it is all part of a inevitable cosmic plan.
Recall the Platonic model of the charioteers.
Reason, the rider, is entirely under the control of the passions - the black and white stallions. It has no control over the passions.
The reigns are not in his hands....there is someone else behind him...a ghost, a spirit. He is tied by the reigns by an invisible hand. He is one of the stallions, either/or...either the white/good one, or the black/evil one.

Some individuals are more inclined to be addictive/obsessive - yes indeed.

"Emptiness" is the void that has to be fulfilled with the addiction the obsession. An addict fills the void in himself/herself with the chemical, the object of his obsession/addiction.
"Dysfunctional childhood" = no emotional connection with the parents. "Parental absence." Present, but emotionally not there.
"Abnormal development of cortex".

Individuals become obsessed/addicted to an icon that fills in the absence of an "attentive parent"....like Nietzsche who gathers all the lost boys across this postmodern desert...where the chosen still wander. Any icon/idol will suffice as long as it fills in that inner void.
Anti authoritarianism is typical, consumerism.
Sexual fetishism.

So, in a no-god, no-free-will existence, the living are addicted/obsessed with life, and the only solution, the only escape from a meaningless existence is death.
But those who are too afraid to die must make excuses, or convince the world that it also wants to die, and this, ironically, gives their life meaning, indefinitely postponing what they cannot bring themselves to do for themselves.
Nihilism.
For a nihilist life is an addiction they cannot shake.

Let's connect the two.
Need is to body what desire is to mind.
Pain is need that has not been satisfied for a period of time that exceeds the individual's constitution - tolerance.
Ennui is is desire that has been ungratified for a period of time that exceeds the individual's constitution - tolerance.
Tolerance of lack and tolerance of excess - both stressing the individual psychosomatically.

When an individual cannot fulfill a need it feels discomfort. The discomfort increases until it becomes unbearable.
When an individual cannot expunge its excess energies it feels discomfort. the discomfort increases until it becomes intolerable.

Failures correctly identify the source in their own past certainties, so they dedicate themselves to destroying all forms of certainty, once more failing to identify the cause of their failures.

Man's innate, often irrational, fear of darkness hints at the reason why many modern men are attracted by the occult.

During the first two decades of life we absorb beliefs and habits, spending the next decades testing them by putting them into practice.
The last decades, if we are wise, are spent revising them.

Back to Schopenhauer...as stress declines excess produces madness and dysphoria.
Body/Mind - the brain evolved to facilitate the needs of the body.
As needs become easy to satisfy the mind is liberated from this task. The ease by which the body can gratify needs - product of flux, i.e., interaction, existence - determines the degree of excess energies the mind will enjoy or need to expunge.
This 'need to expunge excess energies' - libidinal energies - is differentiated from the body's need to replenish energies being constantly lost due to existence.
The term "desire" can be used to differentiate.

Excess energies - libidinal - are redirected towards self-replication. The organism gradually evolves the ability to store these energies as stress to expunge them suddenly, increasing tis probability of survival - these explosive reactions are fight/flight.
Another evolution is sexual reproduction using another so as to increase the probability of survival in an everchanging environments.
Synthesis of two genealogical codes multiplies mutations and combines two continuums of accumulated mutations.
This makes it more likely that a combination that may offer an advantage within fluctuating circumstances will emerge.
Basic stuff.
So, these excess energies are now held on standby to be redirected towards the energy demands of sexual reproduction - particularly for females.

Therefore, when sexual gratification is not gratified via expunging these energies, and the environment is so safe and predictable - manmade -that fight/flight is also unnecessary, what happens?
These energies stress the organism, causing it to become neurotic, acting mad. The brain is overwhelmed.

Art is an alternative.
Art is a method of expunging said excess energies.
Creativity, in general. Redirecting these energies, via the brain/mind, outwards, via a medium.
We see this in famous philosophers who never married and had no children yet produced works of art, extraordinary philosophical works, essentially impregnating minds rather than bodies.
Meme reproduction, or transference of memes from mind to mind.
Memes are extensions of genes, so the individual's genealogy was incorporated into his art, his creation, his philosophical work, in the form of language.
Others use other forms of art to achieve the same effect - expunge libidinal energies, and impregnate, through symbolic intercourse, their genetic qualities as these interact with environment, into another mind.
As with all forms of fertilization the transference is mutated through the process and when it finds a mind to fertilize it gestates there, synthesizing with the receiving mind - acting as a memetic womb - to produce something else.
This is why different kinds of art, different kinds of philosophical work, produce different effects in different minds.
The product, once more, is evaluated in relation to the environment it is born into. Therefore, genius work when finding a simpleton to fertilize may produce garbage.

K-selection is most refined and obviously expressed in humanity.

Not only are babies & infants weaned for an extra long period of early life, but so too are interpersonal and romantic relationships in adults. For example, most mammals fight over mating-rites during the Spring breeding season. But in humans, these mating periods may take multiple years, perhaps decades. This applies to long-lasting, more impactful and significant 'friendship' as well. Humans have decades to spare, while common mammals do not.

Then the extension goes longer, beyond one's own lifetime, and into the next generations. Philosophers speak across the Ages to one-another. Now, communication and "solidarity", fraternity and eroticism, may span across countries and centuries. Does not a man or woman appeal to those in the distant past, as well as the distant future?

Does not Aphrodite seduce men today, as she did two thousand years ago? Does not Athena grant her wisdom to those willing to listen, as she always had?

Fitness = is not about muscles and speed and strength. It isn't even about symmetry/proportionality - beauty.
These are physical markers of fitness, exhibiting the real essence of what fitness means - adaptive probabilities/potentials.

Adaptation is fitness.
Adaptation is about judgement and is expressed via choices - actions, interactions - so it implies some degree of free-will, otherwise what is being "naturally selected" if all is determined?
Predetermination is prejudice. Belief that all has been predetermined is an expression of prejudice...irony of ironies.
A hunter's quality is the product of his ability to "read" the prey - empathy - and the environment/circumstances, he and his prey will interact - objectivity.
Subjectivity corrupts the outcome either overestimating or underestimating the prey - the hunted - the environment or oneself - the hunter.
Its consequence is success or failure.
Chance - chaos - may also play a part - we call this factor "luck," or "fate," or "chance", alluding to the unpredictable, the imperceptible, the unknown, the incomprehensible.
Whether it be due to complexity - alluding to the quality of mind evaluating - or to chaos - random factors that can never be foreseen.
Adaptation deals with this by continuously adjusting the actor to fluctuating circumstances.
A dynamic process of mind reacting to reality - will, intent focusing no an objective in real time.
The speed and accuracy of the adjustments determine the potential - probability - for success, without ever guaranteeing it.

Triad, triangulation
Empathy = not sympathy or antipathy = objective understanding of other
A hunter must empathize with the prey if he can accurately predict its reactions.

Self-knowledge - Know thyself
A hunter must accurately evaluate his abilities, at the moment of the hunt.
Neither under- not over-erstimating himself in relation to his prey.
Self-control - mind & body - is an important consequence of self-knowledge.

Environmental Awareness
A hunter must be aware of the circumstances, the environment both he and his prey will be interacting in.
Environment can include other hunters, other prey, climate, geography etc....but also cultural factors, social factors etc. when predator and prey are of the human kind.
Metaphor for sexual pursuits.

When a female evaluates a male's attractiveness she may first be drawn to his physical symmetry/proportionality, exhibiting his ability to adapt in real time to his environment.
But this is not enough for a female because she has more riding no her choice.
I've already explained why heterosexual copulation is an aggressive act of intrusiveness necessitating specific attitudes, types, psychologies, of body and mind.
What is more important is how this inherited potentials - genetic - has been cultivated and reacted to the prevailing environmental circumstances - genetically and memetically.
Physical symmetry/proportionality is a first indication. Because we are a hunter gatherer species the visual is decisive.
Mental proportionality/symmetry is much more important, because the mind displays a real-time adaptation to environmental circumstances - an evaluation of a man's free-will.
Here any mutations, corruptions, traumatic events will be revealed via humour, demeanour, intelligence, balance, fetishes, tastes, movement, grace etc....all words describing mental symmetry/proportionality.
An imbalance will be displayed as obsessiveness, addiction, mania, neurosis, schizophrenia....and on and on.
Anything that hints at a disproportional reaction to events in real time; anything that displays flexibility of spirit/mind via language....etc.
