The Science

A well-structured thesis is based on a foundation of scientific understanding in order to support all future arguments. In discussing the science behind innovating business through the study of war and conflict we need this presupposition in order to move forward. Understanding why things are irrevocably linked within nature; indeed the fundamental laws that bound the workings of the universe, we can see how connections are possible and implement them to other sectors accordingly.  All good arguments have a foundation based on logical and reasonable conclusions derived from a scientific perspective.  This is the foundation for War Is My Business.

Life and Evolution

How does life and evolution build humanity?


Since we are focused on human endeavors, we would be amiss to skip past how humanity came to be. Additionally, the conditions that shaped our species have led us to perceive everything in a unique way, which, in turn, shaped the nature of our endeavors.

The Human Domain

What in humans shapes war and business?


Humans have a complex sensory system that feeds information to the various cortices in our brain.  Our brains use this information to infer the nature of the world, and we shape our endeavors based on these inferences.  This leads to unique characteristics human groups which, in turn, lead to humans influencing each other.
