In 1988, one hypothesis stood out from all others in showing promise as the potential missing theory that would explain human nature. The hypothesis was based on a unique approach to the problem. Rather than explain how human beings are special, it assumed human beings are emotionally identical to the animals until some difference became inescapable.
Over the next few years, this hypothesis was tested and retested by way of thought experiments and observation. Laws and principles were deduced and groomed until they could explain the empirical data without exception or need for modification. Practitioners could even make accurate predictions consistently.
In early 1991, a granting foundation sponsored a think tank to test the ability of this new theory to answer longstanding questions regarding human nature. In 1992, the think tank released a treatise entitled The Theory that Explains Human Nature.
Note: “The Theory” was registered with the US Trademark and Copyright Office in 1998 (File #TXu 848-169) with the title “The Theory that Explains Human Nature.”
With astonishing ease, The Theory that Explains Human Nature answers life’s most perplexing questions. We now understand the emotions experienced by all human beings and why individuals respond differently to them. We understand why people have different occupational and recreational interests, why we vary in our sexual preferences, why what we think strengthens or weakens the immune system, and the secret to retaining a youthful appearance.
We know how to increase (or decrease) sexual desire on demand, how to overcome depression without drugs and how to beat the emotional component of addiction. We know how to achieve long-term success in romance and why only some people are peak performers and how to become one. We know why our social institutions are in disarray and how to fix them, how to achieve social harmony and much more.
Is Humanology® real science?
Humanology® meets the definition of a real science. (1) It is a body of knowledge that has been systematically arranged. (2) Hypotheses are formed and tested by way of experiment. (3) General laws and principles have been deduced. (4) The general laws and principles explain the data and allow practitioners to make accurate predictions consistently.
Note: Practitioners of Humanology® are called “humanologists.” However, everyone will benefit from adopting the central theory of Humanology®, including psychologists.
Note: We challenge the American Psychological Association (the APA) to a debate in a national forum. If the APA can demonstrate (1) there is no gaping hole in Psychology, (2) psychologists are not applying pseudoscience and (3) the central theory of Humanology® is incorrect, we will make a public apology and shut down this website. However, if we win the debate, henceforth, we expect respect, accommodation and the deference warranted.
