(Photo illustration by Jonathan Payne) In contrast to "every man for himself" interpretations of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, Dacher Keltner, a UC Berkeley psychologist and author of "Born to be Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life," and his fellow social scientists are building the case that humans are successful as a species precisely because of our nurturing, altruistic and compassionate traits.
from Exo-Psychology by Dr. Timothy Leary Ph.D The egocentricity and geo-centricity of larval philosophy has over-estimated human intelligence in relationship to other forms - in particular the DNA code and the atomic nucleus. The ultimate question is: what is the end point of biological evolution?

Neurologically it could be said that the emergence of each new neural circuit involves a "death-rebirth."
