Unity Consciousness & Bioneuroemoción®
When we speak of biological meaning, we start from the function that organs and tissues of the body have acquired throughout evolution to adapt to changes in the environment. These functions range from the most archaic, such as feeding, protecting or reproducing, to more recent acquisitions, such as being part of a social group, establishing links or delimiting a territory. The acquisition of language, the ability to reason, to plan, to be abstracted and to memorize behaviors allowed us to develop, in addition, the symbolic capacity.
The creation of the neocortex and the appearance of language, although they assume an evolutionary advantage over the rest of the species, result in a double-edged sword. While the rest of the world’s animals and living beings act and react unconsciously to environmental changes and stimuli, human beings can become aware of these subconsciously activated patterns of behavior and adaptation.
This gives us, as a species, the ability to modify our response to the environment in a deliberate and reasoned way, by developing behaviors more adapted to the conditions of the environment. While animals and living things in general only have the capacity to survive in a given ecosystem, human beings have the capacity to create new ecosystems, real and symbolic.
This means that we, as a race, adapt to the environment we create physically and mentally. This happens because, unlike other living beings, the human being can, through language, dissociate himself from experience to live his own interpretation. As a result, often our interaction with the environment may not be fully adaptive because the expectations and judgments we make of our everyday situations are often far from reality.
When our interpretation of the rationalization of our experiences generates an answer that does not resolve the conflicts that our unconscious tries to cover to ensure our survival, behavioral and organic changes occur and cover our most basic needs.
In many cases, people often live experiences that, most of the time, only occur in their minds. It is therefore at the level of their perception that changes leading to an improvement in their personal well-being will occur.
The human body is a system of representation. Through which we are able to connect with our origins, with coping mechanisms that have guided our evolution from the simple unicellular organism that sailed on the archaic sea to the complex multicellular organism that is currently the human being . It also connects us with the ancestral roots, with all those beliefs that ensured the survival of the clan. In short, it connects us to the information with which we interpret the environment in which we live.
