Valter Tucci

The Evil’s genes

Mind is a biologic process. The activity of group molecules in the brain guides all our practices, good and bad ones. The idea of the evil has old origins, it integrated with men history on Earth. And now we do have the tools to treat evil as a biologic phenomena. We are able to identify specific portions of DNA that influence our worst behavior. Though, genes constitute only a part of a complex process in which epigenetic mechanisms are involved. It is a biologic richness that survived many generations, allowing us to direct this planet. The achievement of an accurate knowledge of biology of our behavior is one of the priorities of our species.
