The paper examines the origins of human behavior and human society. This is done through the lenses of the novel sDAIRA analytical model of human behavior, defining a behavioral act as a sequence of steps: signal(s)-Detection (D)-Appraisal (A)-Intent (I)-Risk analysis(R)-Act (A). A review of components of the sDAIRA model allows us to conceive that human behavior results from an evolutionary evolvement of behavioral phenomena, which initially concern the "functioning of matter," then develop to the "functioning of organisms," and subsequently extend to the "functioning of minds." Consequently, interconnected behavioral models are theorized for different domains of nature, i.e., matter (inanimate matter), life (animate life), and mind (mental phenomena). Furthermore, it is contemplated that society is not a unique attribute of Animalia or humanity but rather a general framework for the existence of all forms of nature. In this way, a material substance represents a community of atoms.
