“People and animals come together in herd-communities with their own kind exclusively to a single end. Each individual strives to preserve their own genes but achieving that alone can become extremely difficult or even impossible.
It is easier to find a partner for the realisation of the basic instinct as a member of a herd and so ultimately, the prime principle in play is still the Law of Gene Preservation. It is easier to defend oneself from a more powerful enemy as a member of a herd. A pack of hyenas, for example, can face down a powerful predator like a lion, whereas an individual hyena would have no chance. In a herd it is easier to hunt and gather large sources of food, which it would be impossible for a lone animal to find. This is the case for lions, wolves and all other herd predators, including mankind.
The unification of human beings into ever larger communities, beginning with tribes and clans in prehistoric times, then nations and states in the Middle Ages, continues today in the process called world globalisation. The reason for globalisation is the same as it was a thousand years ago. It provides the best conditions for preserving one’s own gene.
However, the communal existence provided by the herd develops a code of collective behaviour among its members which is required for this type of coexistence to be possible, namely, mutual support and assistance, as we saw in the examples of the elephants and dolphins.
The human collective behavioural code has acquired a particularly complex form but despite all this, the species preservation instinct instantly disappears when it is no longer necessary or when it conflicts with the Law of Gene Preservation, which remains the dominant factor in any set of circumstances.
Usually the entire herd serves to preserve the gene of the dominant family, helping to raise its offspring. But as soon as a non-dominant male tries to realise its own Law of Gene Preservation and approaches the harem of the dominant male, it will be immediately expelled from the herd or even killed by the dominant male, who fearing the intrusion of a foreign gene into his harem first and foremost perceives a threat to the preservation of its own gene. Young sexually mature males tend to drop out of the herd, exercising their own right to gene preservation. No herd can prevent them doing so, however strong their bonds.
Here you can see, that the Law of Gene Preservation is primary, and the species preservation instinct is secondary.”
