Thanks for the thread OP & everyone else that open-mindedly entertains some variation of this possibility. It should go w/o saying that there are
countless mutations that we could conjure based upon present scientific knowledge & creativity, but I too favor some type of evolutionary human
being(s) & inter-dimensional and/or time-travel explanation. I bet this isn’t our/their 1st hamster wheel either.
Psychologists are always confronted with the conflict between free will & out-of-balance nature/nurture predispositions. A lot of inconclusive
research has been done to try to correlate intellect with brain size. For what it’s worth, here’s a bastardization:
There’s no replacement for displacement—kind of, as far as the brain goes, research is able to correlate the link between generational increases
in IQ (the “Flynn Effect”) and abstract problem solving and generational increases in neuronal networks and glial cells.
Essentially, glial cells fuel neurons & activate synapses. The more we think & process generationally, the more we mutate generationally. Our brains
are getting larger (or fatter) & although that doesn’t mean we take full advantage, or that our cranial V-8 truck is going to outrun a 4-cyl. Lotus,
it does mean that an increased performance potential exists within the V-8 that will never exist with only 4-cylinders.
The large-head/extremely delicate & potentially unfused skulls or non-calcified skeletons seem like a reasonable adaptation for a being that really
only uses its brain & may not have to deal with gravity. The huge pupils, Vit.D deficiency, & lack of a pinky finger seems plausible, so why wouldn't
they have bigger heads for their bigger brains?
For what its worth, here’s a link for some light reading: www.sfn.org...
