Embedded in a Society


Our parents, if we are fortunate, train us in “right and wrong”. They do it because they are embedded in a society - and they know that we, too, will be embedded in a society. We are not separate; we are in society. And, to be outside of society is not a good thing because we are evolved, designed to be social, to communicate, to think, and to learn. We come into this world with bodies programmed by millions, billions of years of evolution. We are born into human cultures with thousands of years of collective learning. That is our inheritance. Now to use it wisely.
