Yes, evolutionary psychology offers one way to understand it, but is not in
itself the Fount of Meaning. No single person, organization, system, or
body of information is. As you have discovered in other realms of
experience, careful attention to direct experience does help one gain an
understanding. Evolutionary psychology will only take you so far. Like the
rest of the sciences, it describes but does not prescribe.
