All Irrational Behavior the Result of Damage

All the rest of human behavior and feeling except these three big categories—the genius-sized flexible intelligence; the zestful enjoyment of living; and the loving, cooperative relationship with others—all the others, all the repetitive mistake-making which is so characteristic of adult behavior, all the terrible ways we feel so much of the time, and all the perfectly terrible relationships that pass almost for standard in our culture (if you haven’t looked around lately), all these seem to be non-natural, non-inherited. These are acquired characteristics. These are the results of damage, of something going wrong.
