Actually, not how some of our common evolutionary metaphors would have us believe. For instance, it's species, not individual organisms, that adapt to produce evolution, and genes don't "want" to be passed on -- a gene can't want anything at all!

How it is possible for primitive life forms to spawn the millions of different creatures, that exist today.

By using visualizations, infographics and appealing characters, the viewer is more likely to understand it the complex information.

Not this kind of fitness, but evolutionary fitness. Evolutionary fitness can be generally defined as an organism's capacity to survive and reproduce in a given environment. Let’s break this definition down a little further. First, fitness starts in the genes. It is the fitness of genotypes and phenotypes that determine the survival of a species, or rather, the survival of certain genes within that species.

    Evolution has provisioned the human brain with four basic parts, reflecting our evolutionary ancestry: our so-called Reptilian Brain, Old Mammalian Brain, New Mammalian Brain, and Advanced (prefrontal cortex). Learning our brain's "creation story" helps us have compassion for ourselves and others, owing to the social, emotional, and substance challenges that ensue from "mismatched instincts" that are no longer in sync with today's cultural conditions. This understanding offers enormous practical assistance, too, in working through relational troubles, PTSD, and addictions to food, substances, internet porn, and romance novels.

Let’s break this definition down a little further. First, fitness starts in the genes. It is the fitness of genotypes and phenotypes that determine the survival of a species, or rather, the survival of certain genes within that species. When we talk about survival it is not necessarily the fastest or strongest that survive, but those with the best advantage in that environment Examples include traits like camouflage to hide from predators, acute night vision for hunting prey, and even sleeping with one eye open to stay alert, like the dolphin. But this is only half the story, the ability to reproduce and pass those genes on is just as important as survival. This where sexual selection traits come in. Examples include traits such as feather or coat color for attracting a mate, mating songs or dances, and also physically competing for mating rights. So again, fitness deals with both survival AND reproduction. If you have one but not the other, genes will not likely be passed on. And that’s it.

Be sure to check out my other videos and if you have any questions, throw them in the comments or check the link in the description. Thanks for watching, I’ll catch you next time. -RIP Harambe-

Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard advocated the “cognitive process” as the best method of educating and developing minds. He called for an approach that would be “lived, practiced, and actualised” rather than becoming an end product in itself. Education would become a cumulative, continuous process that transformed the “whole of an individual's life.” Learning would be life-long. Pedagogues, best described as professionals specialised in the developmental care of young children, are a prime example of how cognitive development can be initiated in the earliest years. Pedagogy is a career that is specific to Denmark, and requires a 4-year university degree and a specific curriculum that combines different behavioural sciences. While Danes usually brush off global surveys that rank them as the happiest people in the world, a visit to one of these centres sheds light on the lasting impact of early cognitive learning on individual development. Hylet has been the starting process of lifelong learning for generations of Danish children. While UNESCO's themes of Right to education, Quality, Inclusion, Access and Equity focus on reform oriented measures and concrete goals, Lifelong Learning (LLL) has been adopted as a means of bringing together all the themes under one umbrella. LLL shapes education as an evolutionary process that should be honed, perfected and made universally accessible. From early childhood to the elderly, lifelong learning strives to incorporate a larger picture of education as a means of self-actualisation. This includes affording further learning opportunities for those who are already in the workforce or to help bridge their career goals regardless of age or vocation.

Evolution has provisioned the human brain with four basic parts, reflecting our evolutionary ancestry: our so-called Reptilian Brain, Old Mammalian Brain, New Mammalian Brain, and Advanced (prefrontal cortex). Learning our brain's "creation story" helps us have compassion for ourselves and others, owing to the social, emotional, and substance challenges that ensue from "mismatched instincts" that are no longer in sync with today's cultural conditions. This understanding offers enormous practical assistance, too, in working through relational troubles, PTSD, and addictions to food, substances, internet porn, and romance novels. It offers special insight into the enormous challenges of adolescence (as the prefrontal cortex "rewires" for independence and the biological drive to find a mate) — and thus the importance of adult guidance and mentoring of youth. Barlow and Dowd introduce playful illustrations and terminology for the four parts of the brain: "Lizard Legacy" (Reptilian), "Furry Li'l Mammal" (Old Mammalian), "Monkey Mind" (New Mammalian neocortex), and "Higher Porpoise" (the newest brain add-on: the prefrontal cortex that gives us impulse control and the ability to commit to a higher purpose).
