The process of identifying myself as a white male went as far as looking down.

Cavemen

shitmystudentswrite:

How does a caveman really look?  Does he have nappy hair, dirty oily skin, and big monsterous feet?  Or does he have long luxurious hair, clean glistening skin, and small petite feet?  Only way to know the absolute truth is to travel back in time to 400 BC.

The human brain treats rejection in a similar way to the way it process physical pain
A scientific study conducted by the University of Michigan Medical School has shown that the brain uses a similar reaction to ease the pain of social rejection as it does to deal with pain caused by physical injury.
When the body experiences physical pain, the brain releases chemical opioids into the empty space between neurons, which “dampens” pain signals.
The team asked 18 adults to look at photos and fictitious personal profiles of other adults. Each selected some who they might be most interested in romantically. Afterwards, when the participants were lying in a PET scanner, they were told that the individuals they found attractive were not interested in them. The brain scans of participants who were experiencing this form of social rejection showed highly active opioid systems, meaning the brain was releasing its natural painkiller.
