I do get the feeling that for an intelligent species we are somewhat of an underachiever. Humanity could be so more! We could raise the intelligence
quite easily by inventing ways of making the environment more enriching: as we alter the environment we live in and then it creates us, forces us to
adapt and evolve certain ways. With the right changes worldwide we could become more able gifted people, if only the whole human race could aspire
more.We could be more powerful, in so many ways. However the ancient Greeks were so fit that there rowers had cardiorespitory systems of olympic
athletes. However in th earliest part of the ancient Greeks children with birth defects were left on rocks to die. They were educated, : at this time:
altogether like a boarding school, mostly to fight with poor literacy at this period contrasting with the highly educated later Geeks. It could be
said that there great feats were only balanced by their cruelty.
