Interesting post OP. Certainly some food for thought. Some of it is reminiscent of Sleeper's posts on certain things, I take it you've read his
offerings from years gone by?

Earthlings have evolved exponentially over the course of the last 2.000 years. If you compare us to the rest of the beings on Earth, we have in my
opinion gone way past full throttle.
Seeing how other species have evolved over the course of millions of years, yet we achieve something pretty amazing in the short span of 100.000 years
and even more so the last 2-300 years.
I see lots of references to human evolution and progression. Some people marvel at how smart we are.
Have we evolved that
In my eyes, we're only slightly above the animals. We still are driven by hunger, by a need to fornicate/procreate, and by our bases desires. We're
still capable of extremely cruelty. We still wage wars. We are still a race of beings who make a lot of decisions which are influenced by (if not
fully based on) emotional responses, like animals (fear/love/etc) rather than purely logical reasons.
We have lots of technology, but again - primates can use tools, all we're doing is using more advanced tools. And as we use these, exponential growth
will lead to rapid advancements with the next set of tools. It doesn't necessarily mean there's outside influence.
I think a true evolutionary leap would be us transcending beyond our base physical desires and moving to a stage where pure information and
questioning the reality around us is all that matters. I've a feeling the singularity (when and if it happens) will be the catalyst for that.
