ECOLOGICAL SIN AND THE SCIENCE OF MORALITY

"The church must introduce in its teaching the sin against the environment. The ecological sin."

ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI’ OF THE HOLY FATHER FRANCIS  “ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME’  June 2015

The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the soil, in the water, in the air, and in all forms of life.” (P. 2)

 “Authentic human development has a moral character” (p.6).

 “WE NEED TO DEVELOP A NEW SYNTHESIS CAPABLE OF OVERCOMNG FALSE AGUMENTS OF RECENT CENTURUES.” (P. 90).

How Culture Shapes The Human Brain

The power of Touch the Future’s Academy is its ability to create relationship. A dramatic illustration of this synergy is in the relationships between four interviews:

(New) Joseph Chilton Pearce on The Death of Religion and Rebirth of Spirit

(New) Darcia Narvaez, PhD on Neurobiology in the Development of Human Morality

(Now indexed w/tanscripts) James W. Prescott, PhD on Sensory Deprivation and Brain Development and

(Now indexed w/transcripts) Jean Liedloff of the Continuum Concept on her experiences with stone age tribes in the Amazon.

This constellation began with our discussion with Darcia Narvaez exploring her and neuro-scientist Allan Schore’s new book on the relationship of neuro science and morality, something James W. Prescott has been describing for years. What is morality? Our capacity to be kind to others. Indeed, this capacity is innate; however, like all capacities it must be developed and this cycles back to nurturing or its absence in early childhood with what we call nurturing directly impacting how the brain forms structurally and functionally.

Neurobiology in the Development of Human Morality, Evolution, Culture and Wisdom is about trying to shift our imagination to remind us that our human nature is different from what we see today and the way we raise children can be different also and they’re linked to what we think is human nature and what we think of as normal human adult behavior is not normal.  We are very abnormal.  But unfortunately the people who are abnormal are the ones that are spreading their view of the world all over the world as if that’s normal, to be selfish and always thinking about what you can gain for yours
