Toward a Unified Field Theory of Human Behaviour (Global Cultural Evolution)

Marcus Abundis

Abstract


A model of human consciousness based on Earth's geologic history of mass-extinction & recovery (evolutionary dynamics). Five Earthly dynamics trigger within humanity's adaptive psychology an “adverse relationship” with environment – a Paradox that sparks human consciousness with intellectual and spiritual questions of unity vs. diversity (Earth/Mother vs. humanity). Humanity adaptively mirrors Earth's five evolutionary dynamics with five gender-based archetypes (bio-cultural dynamic) that unfold in a mythologizing of natural adversity as foundation for all human knowledge.
The intellectual lineage used to develop this model includes:
• Evolutionary biology and Earth systems science establish an overarching context for this study – answering Chalmers’ “hard question,”
• Paleoanthropology defines the circumstance of humanity’s emergence from Gaia,
• Psychology monitors humanity’s shift from animal-self to modern creative-self, using work of Hegel > Freud > Jung > Joseph Campbell > Arnold Mindell as a new structural psychology,
• Fractal geometry then offers a holographic design for modeling consciousness,
• Memetics, finally, presents a tool for measuring humanity’s conscious traits, with a variation of the Hall-Tonna values inventory.
This work presents a “general hypothesizing model” of human consciousness, in attempting a science of consciousness.
