Ep 6 Diving into Deep Nature Not 42, The REAL Meaning of Life the Universe, and Everything

    • Philosophy

If we evolved, we must be animals. But what kind of animal?

All animal species have their own genetically predisposed pattern of behaviour. In other words, each species has its own "Deep Nature". In this episode we look at the behaviour of a small number of animal species to work out how and why each animal behaves as it does, so that we can go on, in future episodes to discover what kind of deep nature our own species might have.

This episode includes adult content.

The ideas in these podcasts do not belong to me, that’s why they are ad-free, and I don’t make money from them. I have followed reason and the best available science to construct a story about our universe and what it is to be human that I think everyone should hear. Have I missed anything? Have I got anything wrong? Someone cleverer than me might find that I have. If you think these ideas need to be disseminated more widely so we can find out, have your own say, or just want to know more about the ideas, please check out my YouTube Channel, website, blog page, Facebook page or follow me on Twitter/X.
