first of all, i have only just now read this thread so i'm responding to several things
whoever said we are conglomerations of earlier hominids is wrong. The biggest theory involved in that was we were part early sapiens, part
neandrathals, they later proved through DNA research that this was not true, we were just evolved sapien sapiens, nothing else.
No, we dont use only 5 percent of our brain, the person that said that we only use that amount at a time is closest to right. We use 100 percent of
our brains over our lifetime, we only use 5-10 percent of of it at a time, we dont have any hidden areas of the brain that can be used, we can just
use it more efficiently
yes, AI depressed me as well, i was very sad, i had to go search for a happy movie to watch after that sad tale.
we have over the centuries gotten progressively taller, anybody ever been to pompei? you would swear that all the people were children. i haven't
heard the thing about wisdom teeth but it seems logical as well, personally i had to have them taken out, count yourself lucky you didn't, i
couldn't eat anything for a week, wasn't fun
I tend to agree with whoever said we wont evolve much past this state physically other then getting bigger (i wonder how tall we will end up?) I
think the only evolution we will do will be technological. i dont think we will ever evolve past our ability to understand our technology as a
society, we're already close to the point that individuals can't understand every piece of technology they use (actually most of humanity is past
that point) we will just continue to specialize...personally i see a rather bleak future in which we involve into somethin similiar to the borg on
star trek, except more destructive and more individualistic
