I find the work that you do, incredibly interesting. I think this field of evolutionary psychology is fascinating and and I hope I said it before but I'll say it again. I feel like neuroscience and evolutionary psychology are judging towards one another and it's only a matter of time before. They emerge in some formal way. I mean there is the work for instance on polygamous versus monogamous Prairie voles and levels of these oppression, but it's a big leap to go from vasopressin and a prairie vole. No disrespect to that beautiful work. But to humans and say oh vasopressin inhaler are going to make you monogamous or something. I think that's a probably got the direction the effect wrong, but you get
the yeah. No. No, you're absolutely right. And and I think it will happen. I think it's starting to happen and and it will happen because getting it the neurosciences. At the underlying mechanisms that are driving the process. So, you know what an evolutionary perspective brings to Bear is evolve function and ultimate explanation. The Selective forces that created adaptations the functions of those adaptations and the Neuroscience brings. Well, what is the underlying Machinery that these mechanisms are instantiated in, would
be wonderful to collaborate someday? Maybe we'll do a brain Imaging study on jealousy or something in I don't throw it. You're the psychologist. He would come up with the beautiful experimental design.
