The reptilian brain also makes men and women different from each other. There is much more to us, of course, than that animal nature of gender instincts. Just as the reptilian brain is like a primitive software program that runs all our instincts and shows us that the minds of men and women have differences, the mammalian brain is like a somewhat more advanced program that runs our emotions. Both men and women are equally gifted at having a capacity to love, since love is scientifically just the passing of positive emotion from one person to another.

Men have a different task in connecting to the universal masculine through their friendships. We can see the reptilian instinct connecting men to their identity in the Battle of Thermopylae. It is the story of the most legendary of Spartan battles, a mere 300 warriors against a horde of 250,000 Persian invaders under the command of the god-king Xerxes.
