How can we explain our deeply emotional and irrational behaviors?

“I co-create a world of 

peace, safety, and love 

through joyful expression and service.”


“There has never been a practical handbook for being human. In my latest book I explore and decode what all 8,000,000,000 people on the planet have in common.”

I retrace the development of life and brains to expose the powerful instincts shared with other animals, as well as the recent and bizarre overlays that make us such a dominant species.
Our hyper-social natures and the need to polarize into tribes are both the root of our success and the force that has brought us to the brink of extinction.
Ash begins seven years of PhD work in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science at the University of California, San Diego - leading to a lifetime of decoding human behavior:
