Desmond Morris Syndrome (DSM), where story-telling that incorporates evolutionary theory is better accepted than the basic principles of biology and levels of biological organization
without human pheromones we would not survive long enough to develop genetically predisposed hormonally controlled preferences for the visual appeal of other people
It is olfactory/pheromonal input that is responsible for the sensory drive and species diversity of Cichlids and the diversity of all species.
social priming doesn’t begin with a visual stimulus or a hormone like oxytocin in mammals. It begins with gene activation by a sensory stimulus
There is no direct link from visual or auditory stimuli that would explain any likelihood that spectral stimuli could classically condition the response to nutrient chemical associated with food odors.
“The findings also provide a framework for understanding fascinating evolutionary questions, such as why humans of different ethnicities have distinct facial features and how these are embedded in our genome.”
