The Twenty-Third Prasad, of “The Great Reveal” by The Planetmates

The Twenty-Third Prasad

Such traits in newborns as non-expression of needs – i.e., non-“fussiness” or non-crying – were selected over traits of expression of needs. Traits of “appeal,” “cuteness,” smiling more as opposed to less, or anything that held even slightly the prospect of the fulfillment of the fully growns own early deprivations, through the newborn, were selected for.

This last meant that if fully growns could see a dim hope that they could get the nurturing – from their own newborns, now – that they did not get from their own fully growns when they themselves were newborns, they would feel more inclined to extend caring to such newborns and increase their survivability over other newborns.

What you call “love” towards your children was at first simply the desperate hope that these newborns would eventually grow up to become the fully growns – “parents” – that did not care for them…did not “love” them sufficiently…when they were small.
