Fascinating study. I would have to generally agree though.
Our environment happens to be very stressful in much of the industrialized world. 'Third-World' nations do not have it much better as they have to
struggle for survival (food, water, shelter in many places in Africa).
I would be very surprised if our bodies and minds were not
trying to keep up with the times.
Our technology has been rapidly advancing over the past hundred years, so why not us as well?
Evolution is not something that stops after a species evolves into a new animal; the process is ongoing.
Since birth, every single one of us is constantly mutating and trying to find better ways to survive. On a large scale, I can see parts of humanity
rapidly gaining intelligence, while others are on the down slope.
I do not think its based on a racial or national meter, but you can tell when you talk to some people that they are willingly ignorant, while others
wish to change for the better.
We are at a point of Conscious Evolution
. We choose where to go, what to change, and how we are going to do so.
Quite exciting indeed.
When the Earth becomes conscious of itself, (Humans) great times are surely to follow. However, the road will be rocky as we are seeing now. Parts of
the whole do not wish change and will fight as hard as it can to stay the same.
In the end, change always wins.
