Born to do Math 68 – XX/XY

Born to do Math 68 – XX/XY
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
July 15, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: That seems to me like one half of the signification. If people are looking for the short-term partner, depending upon the reference there, which appears to be innate.

Rick Rosner: …People are just looking for easily understood because they are babies at knowing what they want.

Jacobsen: I think that is the same, functionally. It is based on innate hardware. Over time, men statistically do not change their preferences over time. Women do. Women look for different signifiers of status, resourcefulness, emotional stability, and so on, rather than the symmetries and signifiers of health that you were mentioning before.

I think there are various aspects of that. People like to say men and women; others like to say spectrum, but it is more a bimodal distribution along XX/XY.

Rosner: You can bring this back to sociobiology with eggs expensive and sperm cheap, and knocking somebody up is expensive. In high school, most people are not much into raising a family. They don’t take that into consideration.

Later, that may become, depending on how your society is structured, more important to women than to men. Also, men masturbate more than women. So, men are constantly going back to the things that help them have orgasms.
