Darwin overlooked the fact that we had to originate as babies in his On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859). Surely we all know that babies are in no condition to survive on their own. Babies are not “fitted” to “survive” in any “Struggle for Existence.” That means that we Homo sapiens had to have originated as the first human babies of our hominid parents. I propose that we originated on the basis of my new theory of evolution in Lectures VI and VII above. Those hominids loved us and cared for us, and that is how human babies survived. But there has never been a theory of our origins! Or at least there had been none until my The Origins of Homo Sapiens (Xlibris, 2008). In Lecture VI I newly present my theory of evolution, and in Lecture VII a theory of our special human origins. I write origins, because there must have been many small groups of hominid survivors of my proposed holocaust whose young women then gave birth to those first Homo sapiens babies. How all of this took place is the subject of those two lectures. If you wish you may go directly to them, for each lecture stands on its own. Louis Carini received his doctorate in Experimental Psychology from Clark University in 1955. He is the author of The Theory of Symbolic Transformations, Three Axioms for a Theory of Conduct, Spiritual Humanism, and The Origins of Homo Sapiens.
Through his researches with adolescent and adult male schizophrenics Carini realized that our brains contain powerful symbolic propensities that even invade our visual percepts. His "The Theory of Symbolic Transformations," (Acta Psychologica , 1969) delineated the course of symbolizing in the perceptual developments of those persons. Realizing, however, that the theory was limited in the range of percepts which it explained, he published a corrected and expanded theory in 1984: Three Axioms for a Theory of Conduct. That book established the theory as a human science that paralleled physics. Spiritual Humanism derives from his latest version of the theory, the Theory of Anththropomorphic Optics, which attributes human qualities to our eyes. The theory establishes the basis for a nondogmatic faith in humanity's consciousness from which our sciences, our arts, and religions were created by our enspirited thoughts and values. Spiritual Humanism aims to provide a nondogmatic faith in humanity's enspirited nature.
