Some might disagree on this and some might feel proud but please hear me out or let’s just say please continue reading and be open-minded 🙂
We all know that men and women are different creatures but can’t leave alone without the other. Majority of the species here on Earth requires both sexes to procreate and one of the goals a species carry is to thrive and continue its line. Most species in the animal kingdom are polygamous for that same reason – to thrive and become the first to dominate amongst other species.
As a human species, we are just the same as the rest of the majority in the animal kingdom. Despite our position or level in the food chain and intelligence we still thrive for our advancement. Complex species like us don’t have the full control of our body, the brain has more room than what we can imagine. If you think that everything that we do and everything humans did to the world and to the future is part of what the brain does, well actually the brain is just a factory/office of the real thinkers that do more than we have done in the past and the present as a human species. It is so advanced too that it’s now “thinking” about the future and it is inside each one of us.
The Cause of Polygamy
I think there’s one single major organ somewhere in our body (could be in our brain that handles all the transactions; it’s like if the computer is the brain then it’s sort of a CPU). This “CPU” dictates the future of our species and this is also the basic and oldest organism who lives on Earth. Though this could not really be an organ but maybe it’s the DNA, after all, DNA can store 215 petabytes per gram of DNA according to the published method known as DNA Fountain by Yaniv Erlich and Dina Zielinski of Columbia University and the New York Genome Center. So imagine how much space DNA can store and room for processing.
Anyway, let’s go to the point of why male species are genetically polygamous.. It’s because it’s embedded in our DNA at the very first day we landed or live or exist on Earth. The goal is simple, and that is to procreate to evolve and to survive. That’s why we see male species have multiple hetero partners in his life. It could be one at a time or simultaneously because their DNA dictates the ancient goal.
Once we are born we are stuck to what we have, there could be some evolution happening along the way but the slate is already formed. It’s like a smartphone version, the first version may have 1 camera at the back and the next version has 2. So, if you are the 1st version then you’re stuck with 1 camera for the rest of your lifespan as a smartphone though you receive multiple on-air updates and become powerful smartphone you are limited with the current hardware that you have as a version 1. The DNA manufactures the next version of our species by gathering data from your environment through your reactions to it physically and chemically, it’s like there is a research and development department inside your body. However, because of our version’s limitation, our DNA cannot test the hypothesis so it created instructions to every version that it creates to seek for ways to procreate and as much as possible as many as it could for a faster turn over. The DNA’s memory does not die and it contains the very first version’s information and instruction up to the present data and it already might have theories for the future that are ready for testing and at the same time deployment.
Once the DNA moved to another cycle or shall we say created a new version (in layman’s term your child/children) the new version will have a different set of testing variables and information gathering using the passed theories and formula from the previous version while your current DNA still continue the research and development until the day you reach andropause because as long as the body can still create a new version it won’t stop creating that perfect version.
Why male, how about the female?
So, why I’m focusing on male species and not to female? Well, females have an important role too, however, only the males reproduce fresh and huge amount of sperm constantly and it’s important for a research and development team inside the human species because that means every iteration in their “database” or laboratory can be deployed immediately. In Information Technology and Agile project management perspective: one sprint of sperm creation takes 64 days and iteration can be done within that time frame for that sprint. Sperm is only a carrier of the information, it’s like a box, so the creation of the box is 64 days in total but the male body has so many of it that it can be ready to deploy daily (no need to wait for the sprint to finish). So if we are not as intelligent as we are now, besides from “eating” the other activity that we all know is have sex every day.
If the males create the formula and hypothesis data, the females are the check and standard at the same time the hardware manufacturer of that masterpiece/experiment. For example, both species gather the data that the Earth’s carbon dioxide level increase 5% every decade, the male species DNA anticipated this pattern and creates a formula that can withstand the increase of carbon dioxide up to 10% per decade but during the manufacturing, the female species might deactivate this formula because based on it’s current data gathering from her vessel (human body) there’s no dramatic increase yet of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, thus it will only activate the standard formula that can handle the current range of carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere.
Men are created to be polygamous for the survival of the species …
As an intelligent human, we had created social standards, norms, religion, and culture that limits or augment our capabilities as a human species. As Christian and as a Filipino we don’t prefer the polygamous relationship. There’s a debate out of entertainment if men are really polygamous by nature. If we look at the basic of life and if we disregard our knowledge influenced by the environment we live, we can say that men are created to be polygamous for the survival of the species. I just wanted to be clear that I am not promoting polygamous in a way that you are hurting anyone else, let’s be an intelligent human being here. If you think it’s your duty and responsibility to procreate and procreate for the sake of your species then make sure there’s a mutual agreement between parties envolve and at the same time as a man you should be able to feed your children and provide their needs as modern human beings. This could be a race but as a human, we are still at the top of the animal kingdom’s pyramid, so chill and stop acting like a wild animal.
