El amor y los sexos

Reproducción, amor, deseo, prostitución, hormonas, afecto, monogamia, placer, poliandria y sexo, entre otros asuntos, se dan cita en este documental presentado por el zoólogo y etólogo Desmond Morris. Producido por Discovery Channel en 1997, forma parte de la serie ‘Cuestión de sexos’, en la que se abordan las diferencias entre hombres y mujeres y se investiga cómo han cambiado sus roles desde los tiempos primitivos.

En este capítulo, ‘Los patrones del amor’, el autor investiga rituales y creencias de lugares tan dispares como Japón, Egipto, Camerún, Estados Unidos, Estonia, India o Turquía y a la vez se pregunta sobre la libertad de nuestras elecciones sentimentales o amorosas.

Un estudio realizado por psicólogos holandeses, publicado en la revista Science en el año 2006, sostiene que esa puede ser una buena estrategia, porque la parte subconsciente del cerebro es capaz de inducirnos a tomar decisiones tan o más acertadas que la consciente.

Contrariamente a lo que se cree y según las conclusiones del estudio, no siempre es buena idea enzarzarse en profundas deliberaciones antes de tomar una decisión. Basándose en datos contrastados en investigaciones anteriores sobre las características del pensamiento consciente e inconsciente, el equipo de psicólogos liderado por Ap Dijksterhuis testó la hipótesis de que las decisiones sencillas —como escoger con qué toalla secarse o mesa en un restaurante— efectivamente resultan mejor después de un proceso consciente, pero las decisiones sobre temas importantes, temas que nos importan realmente —como escoger una casa o cambiar de trabajo—, son mejor resueltas a través de un proceso inconsciente. Conocida como la hipótesis de la 'deliberación sin atención', fue confirmada en cuatro estudios posteriores: con el paso del tiempo, las decisiones tomadas sobre asuntos complejos fueron más satisfactorias para las personas que las habían tomado en ausencia de deliberación consciente, es decir, sin 'pensar'.As everyone knows, and cast the first stone who doesn’t, the most significant decisions involve so many rational variables, that people often feel blocked and stop thinking about them. A study carried out by Dutch psychologists, published in 2006 by Science magazine, argues that it can be a good strategy because the brain’s subconscious part is able to lead us to make as or more successful decisions as the conscious one.

Opposed to what is thought and according to the study’s summary, it is not always a good idea to engage in thoughtful discussions before making a decision. Based on evidence about the characteristics of conscious and subconscious thoughts, the psychologists team lead by Ap Dijksterhuis tested the hypothesis that simple choices —like choosing a towel or a table in a restaurant— are actually better after a conscious process, but decision on important issues, that do really matter to us —like buying a house or changing jobs— are better revolved through a subconscious process. Known as the hypothesis of 'deliberation without attention', it was confirmed ver four different studies: over the time, decision on complex issues where more satisfying for people who had taken in the absence of conscious deliberation, without 'thinking'."

Fritjof Capra is a physicist and systems theorist, founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy located since 1995 in Berkeley, California, which promotes ecology and systems thinking in primary and secondary education.

American born in Austria in 1939, Capra attended the University of Vienna, where he earned his PhD in theoretical physics in 1966. He conducted research in particle physics and systems theory for 20 years at the University of Paris, the University of California, the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, the Imperial College of London and the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. While at Berkeley, he was a member of the Fundamental Fysiks Group, founded in 1975 by Elizabeth Rauscher and George Weissmann, which met weekly to discuss philosophy and quantum physics.

For the past few years, Fritjof Capra has been researching the work of Leonardo Da Vinci —Image Cirone Musi

He advocates that Western culture abandon conventional linear thought and the mechanistic views of Descartes. Critiquing the reductionistic Cartesian view that everything can be studied in parts to understand the whole, he encourages a holistic approach.

Capra has written popular books on the implications of science, notably The Tao of Physics, accurately subtitled 'An exploration of the parallels between modern physics and Eastern mysticism'. The author considers that in the attempt to understand the mystery of life, the human being has followed different paths, including the scientific and the mystical. He puts forward the thesis that the concepts of modern physics lead to a vision of the world very similar to that of mystics of all ages and traditions. The purpose of the essay is to explore the relationship between such concepts, motivated by the belief that the basic themes he uses to compare physics with mysticism will be confirmed —they are being confirmed, in fact— rather than invalidated by future research.

For Capra the two pillars of modern physics are quantum theory and relativity theory, addressed in the first part of the essay. The Eastern philosophies that he refers to in the second part are Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism.

The book asserts that both physics and metaphysics lead inexorably to the same knowledge
