@Partisan good point. Love is a choice and not a feeling or instinct in my opinion.
I like this post but I don’t think that all supernormal stimuli has to be negative. When it comes to advertising products much of the time it is. Also much of the distractions like Facebook and sitcoms can be negative or misleading supernormal stimuli. I think that humans with free choice can choose what they believe and can also choose to use certain supernormal stimuli to make them selves better and stronger. For example we have superheros and supermodels we aspire to be and to mate with. While we may never accomplish these goals it is incentive and motivation to improve ones life…

This is amazing. You are really talented. I love your description “Now armed with questions rather than answers”

Awesome post. And I had so much more appreciation for it after watching the video, I like how he is doing his own independent thing with so much ambition and intent to educate about important topics. Kudos to Stuart!
