Your Personal Reality
With regard to intelligence, brain development and social skills the evolution of hominoid brains was virtually a flat line with little change in brain size and complexity. When cooking was discovered about 80,000 years ago there was an exponential growth in brain size, and most important, social group formation began. In other words, prior to cooking the hominoids didn’t need to associate with other hominoids very much because they just needed to hunt, kill animals, eat for survival. However, group formation and cooking changed all that and in today’s world it is not the need to navigate a physically harsh environment that is needed for survival, rather it is all the skills needed to socially navigate that became essential for survival. Once group size increased social skills became essential for survival and the increasing brain size and associated evolutionary anatomical changes in the brain enabled hominids to socially navigate. Today, the better at socially navigating a person can elicit, the better off he is. The show will discuss and enlighten listeners to pay attention to their personal reality or preality while socially navigating. Shows will always focus on an aspect of what is in the mind of someone when they experience a variety of social interactions.
Your Host, Dr. Charles Pidgeon
Dr. Pidgeon uses the pen name Dr. P. for the show. This is for convenience and nothing else. He has been a scientist for decades and very well published in many different scientific disciplines. The easiest way to view his prior work is to search in Google Scholars his name, Charles Pidgeon. This internet search will demonstrate the breadth of his scientific knowledge. There you will find a significant list of his peer reviewed science papers he pursued earlier in his career. Currently, Dr. P. spends most of his time mentoring high school and college students in neuroscience. Recently, Dr. P. founded the Neuroscience Sensory Unit (NSU) and since then, he has mentored approximately 40 students. This year the NSU will publish four books. He has written and published the book ‘Social Consciousness Pedagogy’ in laymen’s language to communicate to the general population concepts related and important to a person’s personal reality or preality when socially navigating in today’s complex world of cell phones, computers, AI, etc.
