The ancestral origin of the scabies mite, Sarcoptes scabiei, that parasitizes humans and many families of mammals is not known. Likewise, how long ago the coevolution of S. scabiei with specific host mammals began and how this has evolved over time is unknown. However, acarologists and mammalogists using molecular tools and genomic information may clarify these questions in time.
Arlian & Vyszenski-Moher  evaluated the response of all life stages of S. scabiei var. canis to multiple concentrations of 21 lipid compounds that are typically found in or on the epidermis of human skin. They found that a variety of these lipids attracted scabies mites including 13 fatty acids, 5 fatty acid methyl esters, cholesterol, squalene and tripalmitin. The molar concentration that elicited the greatest response varied depending on the compound. A comparison of the different life stages showed that the life stage response depended on the compound and the molar concentration of that particular compound. In some cases, one life stage responded to a concentration of a compound while another did not. Overall, females were the most responsive.
The most important part of Integral Theory is the stages of consciousness - structure and state stages - which describes the levels of personal development all the way from birth through childhood, up to adulthood and even beyond. Through the higher reaches of human nature till spiritual awakening and its refined stages. Finally we have it all in one system. All what psychology and the spiritual wisdom traditions have ever had to say about development. For the first time bringing these together and integrating, finally we have a universal map in our hands and we don't have to be partial, split and take sides. Inside of humans, it is all one. And in the outside world: We as psychologist, coaches, shamans, yogis, doctors, scientists, business leaders, tech people, politicians and change makers, finally we can stand united, and work together more successfully.
has attempted to build full-spectrum theories of human development which follow development from birth through conventional and postconventional stages into the postsymbolic realm and into stages of higher consciousness. - in: (1995) Comprehensive Language Awareness: A Definition Of The Phenomenon And A Review Of Its Treatment In The Postformal Adult Development Literature
After reading more than 300 books on feminism, 300 on ecology, and more than another 400 on various topics such as anthropology, evolution and philosophy, Wilber offers Sex, Ecology, Spirituality: The Spirit of Evolution, a massive 800-page work which is volume one of a planned three volume series. At this stage Wilber has laid the conceptual groundwork for tracing development and evolution, especially human evolution, across all four quadrants. - An overview of Ken Wilber's book Sex, Ecology, Spirituality: The Spirit of Evolution (Shambhala, 1995).
The quadrants also have other big topics connected to them. One is the universal players of evolution, the holons and the 20 tenets that describe them. Out of which the two most commonly mentioned in the integral world is the principle of a healthy stage transition: transcend and include and the description of holarchies as natural hierarchies versus oppressive hierarchies. 2b1af7f3a8
