definitely. evolution is not a process that goes "Right, I'm done. Time to knock off..".. it is ongoing. Continually, every single day, every hour,
every minute. It is slowly happening.
But now we've altered the landscape so completely, we see how it actually does shape us. technology has removed our need to survive in harsh
conditions. Our need for knowledge is so satiated that we don't even bother to learn any more. Everything is at our finger tips. Food is at the
corner store, communication is at the press of a button.
Social animals like humans are losing our ability to be social. Now we are observers of simulations and competitors in virtual reality.
We dont eat food any more, we eat food like products, manufactured to last an eternity, nutrition a second thought. Cancers and degrading quality of
health will continue to plague us, but we will patch up and carry on, living longer.
too much sun giving you skin cancer? no problems. Heres a skin we made earlier. Liver falling out because of excessive indulgence? No worries,
here's one we grew from your snot. Heart giving up because you are too obese to move? Have this piggies heart, and a bacon sammich. And now, lets
give you a gastric band..
Depressed? take this depression causing pill. It will make you feel funny. Like a clown.
Blood pressure ? Oh no! take this pill. It has a picture
of an apple on the box.
we're evolving into parasites. we wont be able to survive at all on our own soon enough. In fact, Id say the majority of human kind right now would
perish within weeks if put in an environment without a phone, a macdonalds, a walmart and wifi.
It wont all be bad. We will have wonderful things. Technology guarantees that those of us alive to see it, will have pretty good stuff. But to them,
it will be normal. So they will also look to the future, further down the bio-technical evolutionary path we have cut out for ourselves.
we are borg. resistance is futile, evolution is inevitable.
