impulse | human instinct

noun \ ˈim-ˌpəls \

In this book, this term describes a human instinct—a sudden, involuntary inclination prompting to action, which is the result of pre-programmed connections in our brain. There are three human instincts (impulses):

  1. An impulse to know what others think. This instinct distinguishes Homo Scientius from his predecessor Homo sapiens sapiens.

  2. An impulse to improve and perfect both ourselves and the world around us. This instinct is a distinctive feature of the Masters.

  3. The impulse to change the way we think, live and work with others. This instinct is a distinguishing characteristic of the Ludens.
