Our Emotional-Territorial brain evolved to
1) connect as social groups,
2) determine place in the ‘dominance hierarchy’.

Much of our self-esteem, locus of control, and ability to socialize comes down to the imprinting of the primitive nervous system.

This episode covers the evolutionary purposes of the territorial brain, the hierarchal layer of reality, and how to access the virtues of dominance— both in defending oneself, but also in service to your social groups. Referencing Timothy Leary’s exopsychology model, honor cultures, and the relationship with testosterone.
