The Evolution of Technology

Footwear_5179

”Humans don’t evolve their bodies to adapt to different environments. They utilize technology. Instead of adapting their skin, they make clothes that can protect them from sun, wind, rain, frost and mosquitoes. They don’t have to wait a million years to evolve feet adapted to different types of terrain. They create footwear to walk in mud, climb mountains, tread through snow, hike across a desert, slam-dunk a basketball or glide down a catwalk.

Improve their vision? They can already see beyond the stars, to the depths of the oceans and into the tiniest secrets of the body.

We have come so far that we can manipulate genes. We can do in minutes, what evolution needs tens of thousands of years to do. The power to manipulate genes shows clearly that we are not slaves to the dictates of biology.”

from the book System Humanity

 

“The human brain weighs about 1400 grams,
but can hold tons of confusion.”
