About the Team
From space missions and medicine to biology and hope, we have invested our careers working toward a better future for individuals and society. While enjoying many successes, nevertheless, we see our efforts to facilitate systemic change as too slow when compared to the problems facing humanity. Moreover, we are concerned that advances in understanding human behavior are not tracking with advances in technology.
To address this, our team of research scientists is presenting a major paradigm shift that employs technology to reveal the underlying uniqueness of human cooperation. This includes describing the fundamental connections between mind, body, culture, and community. Building on a recent scientific discovery that cortisol rhythmicity (normal 60-90-minute cortisol cycles) displays nonlinear* properties, we detail how instabilities caused by stress and trauma affect human cooperation. This has resulted in a coherent theory, explaining how influences affecting cooperation interact—from individuals to the global community. Using these insights, we are developing strategies to further explore and intentionally improve social stability. We see healthy human cooperation as the starting place for humanity’s future.
*Nonlinear means describing how small influences on any level of scale can significantly impact other levels, from the brain’s neurochemistry to individual behavior to community behavior.
