Article on the necessity to explore, study the cooperation through the animal world…because it seems to be as or even more important than the competition mode…

Since Darwin published is evolution theory, every one in our occidental culture tends to make believe to every one that the stronger is the winner and making so, focusing on the competition behaviour like it is the only one really effective in our societies.

This behaviour works but it generates a lot of stress  and only few of us are really healthy and fully alive, because only few of us are at the top of the pyramidal system created by the competition culture…Chiefs are statistically (analyse of there physiology (blood analyse)) in better health than there subordinates: the higher on the social scale, the less stress …This phenomenon is also remarkable with the baboons who tend to live in societies, communities very hierarchical, like human kind, and shows that the male are very aggressive between them and often fighting and have poor consideration for female…Studies have pointed that also for the baboons the higher in his community, the less stress they have…

Stress on long term is a killer of dopamine in the brain, which means a decrease of pleasure and loss of memory capabilities that can lead to stupid behaviour…because of focusing on what is vital and forgetting the whole view of a situation.

So the competition culture makes happy only few of us, and the majority of us are not happy if not insane or not healthy because of the stress…

To escape from this unique way of thinking: competition over competition, we have to look the way of living in the animal world: the cooperative way, which is today underestimate by most of us.

Each one has to act for the well of all others…This behaviour is known has commensalism or mutualism: in ecology, commensalism is a class of relationship between two organisms where one organism benefits but the other is unaffected and mutualism is one where both organisms benefit. Some examples are: development of free software, wikipedia, micro-credit…

Again among the baboons, observing a community where all the dominant male died due to toxic food the rest of the group developed a cooperative way of living, with the result that the prosperity of this group is better now than it was with the presence of the dominant male…and nonetheless each new coming baboon in this group is educated by older to this new culture of cooperation…

So baboons have succeed in transforming there culture, can the mankind do the same way?

We have to try for the sake of us and our planet…
