All of the RSA Animate videos are worth watching, here’s one on the differences between the left and right hemispheres. The video has some great information, but one particular item he covers is good to remember: the main function of the frontal lobe - the characteristic that best sets us apart from other animals - is to INHIBIT the rest of the brain. 

It allows us to stand back from the immediacy of experience.

Jeremy Rifkin’s Empathic Civilization.  Man is soft wired for empathy. 

*V  Reintegrating true Rational Self Interest

We are soft wired for empathy, and we are a social animal, so doing what is good for oneself and others around us creates a inner feeling of peace.  Our genetic makeup is to ‘do unto others as you would do unto yourself,’ so true rational self interest must reflect this reality.
