I was thinking about evolution this afternoon, and it brought me to this thought in particular:

Human Evolution is us adapting to our environment using parts of us in different ways to what they may have been used in the past, yes?

100 years ago, we had the ability inside of us to use a mouse and keyboard. It's true. We simply didn't have a need for it at the time. Once we discovered that we had the ability, however, we made it a stable part of technological existence.

So does it stand to reason that Evolution is a kind of Back-Engineering?

I mean, we ARE simply discovering idle parts of ourselves and making them realised into the world.

Thanks for reading, and feel free to add more to this idea or burn it to the ground.

The thread topic is off...

Has nothing to do with Back-/whatever, but to do with evoultion

But seens im here i will comment on your "thoughts"/"text"

This may come as a shocker to you but... everything is possible

Why do i say that? well becouse of infinity..

All our future events are going to come without us knowing becouse we dont understand why we are here.

Evolution is real but the missing part or the anomoly is "US"..

In 100 years from now.. what would man be doing? playing on his pc? using ATS to debate?

hehe i think not ; )

Actually, I think you have it kind of backwards.
We do have the ability to use tools.
However, anything from there on becomes learned behaviour.

Even simple things like using a fork and a knife are learned behaviour, and are not built into our being.

Anything that becomes as common as a mouse and keyboard, or a knife and fork become so due to practicality, or social norms.

Mice and keyboards are failry practical, though some people will prefr things like a laser pointer, tablets, trackerball, ect.

Personal preference and what you've been brought up with have a lot to do with it.
