The Power of Women over Men

The Evolution of Empathy and Women’s Precarious Leadership Appointments

Abstract

Glass cliffs describe situations in which women are promoted to executive roles in declining organizations. To explain them, some authors suggest that people tend to “think crisis-think female.” However, the root cause of this association remains elusive. Using several subfields of evolutionary theory, we argue that biology and culture have shaped the perception of women as being more empathic than men and, consequently, as capable of quelling certain crises. Some crises are more intense than others and, whereas some brew within organizations, others originate from the external environment. We therefore propose that women will be selected to lead whenever a crisis is minimal to moderate and stems primarily from within the organization. Men, on the other hand, will be chosen as

OCEANS ON EARTH ARE TURNING ACIDIC

Biggest extinction known on Earth result of oceans turned acid by CO2, the main gas driving human-caused climate change.

  Scientists have identified the lethal agency that caused the single most catastrophic event in the history of life on Earth.

The mass extinction at the boundary of the Permian and Triassic eras 252 million years ago was caused by the acidification of the world’s oceans, as a consequence of an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide.

The Permian Extinction – sometimes called “the Great Dying” – seemed to all but obliterate life in the oceans, and perhaps on land. More than 90% of all species disappeared, more than 80% of all genera, and more than 50% of all marine families were extinguished in one prolonged calamity.

All life on Earth today has descended from the few survivors of this far-off episode. Palaeontologists, geologists, climate scientists and astronomers have all speculated on the probable cause.

The latest and most confident analysis is based on a new study of ancient marine sediments and delivers obvious parallels with processes that are – for different reasons − occurring again today.

Scientific Survey

Report: Global coral reef survey highlights climate threat

There has been recent evidence that this present change in the pH of ocean waters (pH is a measure of its acidity) as a consequence of fossil fuel combustion in the last two centuries has already disturbed the behaviour of some fish species, threatened to affect oyster fisheries and coral reefs, and even to alter whole ocean ecosystems. – See more at: http://www.rtcc.org/2015/04/18/ocean-acidification-triggered-mass-extinctions-252-million-years-ago/#.dpuf

The Pale Blue Dot

Shaping a new future for mankind and the species we protect,will test our ability for thousands of years.As we fail time and time again,science and determination eventually will form a sustainable planet.Millions of species will go where no man has gone before.
Space the final frontier is waiting for mankind to lead the way,entrusted with a valued creation.Astrophysicist data gathered and analyzed,reveals evidence of other pale blue dots of earth like class.What if things turn out the opposite? Chances are,extinction of all species is unlikely in a global event,but every specie as we know it, requires our best efforts,at all government levels.Time wasted, is trying to figure out how to set all our clocks,during a time change is a small example of mans genius.

The beginning of a new era for mankind,marks an end to factory farming.

The hell we put these factory animals thru, where we control them from birth to death is hard to justify when legumes and vegetables are much cheaper and more nutritious. Giving life to billions of factory animals just to torture them is inhumane and cruel.

Iris And Nebula

A connection between similarities
An opening to our souls escaping time
Leaving a window for others to gaze
Oh vast as you are
Are we in the centre?
Two ends each in separate points
with a notion of a shortcut in space time.
Iris points of no return to event horizon
Send this message to null infinity
Or the other side with the metric.

Hall of Mirrors

The ego is not the real “you”; it was inherited as part of being born a human. It basically originates from the animal world, and the evolution of consciousness happened through the primitive stages of mankind’s evolution, so it could be said that to seek enlightenment is to recapitulate the history of human evolution.
To undo the ego, one must be willing to abandon this payoff game, with its grandstanding of emotions and repetitive rehashing of data and stories to justify its positions. One will note that the ego milks every wrong and that it has no greater pleasure than to indulge in “righteous indignation.” It just “loves” that juicy positionality that has such a great payoff.

Ego – The False Center

WHAT IS EGO ?

The ego is our self-image, not our true self. It is characterized by labels, masks, images, and judgments. The true self is the field of possibilities, creativity, intentions, and power. We can go beyond the ego through self awareness – awareness of our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and speech.

BUT WE ALSO GET A LOT OF PAIN ,ANXIETY ,ANGUISH ETC.ETC. AS A BY PRODUCT .WHEN A PERSONS PAIN BECOMES TOTALLY INTOLERABLE THEN THE PERSON STARTS  LOOKING FOR THE SOLUTION OF HIS PAIN.EVERYONE EXPERIENCES SOME INTOLERABLE PAIN SOMEWHERE IN HIS LIFE.AT THAT POINT OF LIFE ,WE SEARCH FOR THE MEANING OF LIFE .AT THAT POINT OF LIFE  A  WISE PERSONS ADVICE OR SUGGESTIONS HELP US TO START OUR SPIRTIUAL JOURNEY .THEN WE START TO MEDITATE AND REALISE THAT THERE IS MORE IN LIFE THAN WHAT WE SEE.THE DEEP PAIN WE EXPERIENCE FROM OTHERS REJECTIONS OR HURTS SHOWS US THAT WE ARE ASKING FOR SOMETHING FROM OTHERS TO VALIDITATE US .IN DEEP MEDITATION WHEN WE GET RID OF OUR “I” AND “YOU” WE FEEL THE VANISHING OF THE PAIN  AND IT GIVES US A GREAT RELIEF .FOR THE FIRST TIME ,WE COME TO FACE OUR REAL SELF ,THE PURE AMNESS AND THE PAINS WE EXPERIENCED VANISHES BECAUSE IN DEEP MEDITATION  WHATEVER IS ILLUSION GETS  DROPPED .SAINTS AND THE SAGES EXPERIENCES GIVES US HOPE AND PAVES OUR WAY TO PAINLESSNESS.WE BECOME JOYFUL AND BLISSFUL AND LIFE BECOMES A PLAY .
