Session 3: The Biological Imperative

Biological Imperatives represent the needs of living organisms that are required to perpetuate their existence, to survive. This drive is fundamental in manifesting resilience. The imperative applies to the needs supporting an individual’s survival, controlling among many other functions and behaviors: heart rate, respiration, our need for water food, and other behaviors sustaining life. In the presence of threats. a structure within the brain, the amygdala, coordinates a an imperative-derived protection response. The biological imperative is present within all organisms, from primitive bacteria to humans. It also represents the organismal drive to reproduce, maintaining the survival of the species.
