Is It In Our DNA?




Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a rare genetic disorder in which seven genes (or some subset thereof) on chromosome 15 (q11-13) are deleted or unexpressed on the paternal chromosome. (1)
Genetic abnormalities in chromosome 15 disrupt the normal functioning of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus regulates many basic processes, including appetite.


People who suffer from PWS tend to exhibit identical behaviors.
Regardless of where in the world they are born, or their race or sex.

These behaviors include compulsive overeating, temper tantrums, violent outbursts, stealing, lying, and obsessive/compulsive behavior. They also have a tendency to be argumentative, oppositional, rigid, manipulative, possessive, and stubborn. 2


Prader-Willi Syndrome proves that behavior can be caused by our DNA.

People who act primarily out of Warrior Instinct tend to exhibit identical behaviors.
Regardless of where in the world they are born, or their race or sex.

These behaviors include:
- Black or white thinking,
- Forcing others to meet their needs,
- Attaching emotional content to logistical situations,
- Awkwardness with intimacy,
- And fear of others who don't think and act like they do.
They also have a tendency to be irresponsible, deceitful, territorial, argumentative, and often physically violent.
They show a lack of emotional depth or remorse, and an almost total lack of guilt.


Is there a mutation in a particular chromosome
that causes underdevelopment in the prefrontal cortex
causing a percentage of humans to be born acting primarily out of Warrior Instinct?

Are these Primitive Survival Instincts the result of genetic mutations?

Look at an ant colony. They have complex social organization and specialized members that do different jobs to keep the whole colony alive and growing. It is the same with bee hives. Are we more like the ants and the bees than we are different?

Does this explain why we don't have villages where there are 200 plumbers, and no one wants to be a barber?


Is there a random, yet consistent, mutation of our DNA that insures that there will always be a balance of the eight Instincts from birth so that we have exactly who we need to do the jobs in our social organization to survive as a species?
