Our Sense of Wellbeing
The Origin and Meaning of Our Behavior
Understanding human behavior – what is it?
Inquires into questions about life – who are we?
Below are excerpts from the upcoming book, “Our Sense of Wellbeing – The Origin of Behavior.” These writings are not about final truth or reality, they are hypothesis which will hopefully untangle our antiquated, unbridled, helter-skelter intellectual inferences, and lead toward more logical discovery. These are propositions, not of how our cognitive systems work, but rather a search for and explanation of what drives human behavior and what our seemingly multivarious behaviors are – the what and why.
