Technological Wonders & Economic Cancer

Hearingaid5_7047
It takes tens and hundreds of thousands of years to evolve new abilities: sharper teeth, stronger claws or longer horns. With a few blows of a stone against a stone a hominid smashed through the conditions of evolution and a created a knife that could outperform teeth, claws or horns.

Humans don’t need to evolve their bodies or skin to adapt to different environments or changing climate. They make clothes that can protect them from sun, wind, rain and frost. They don’t have to wait a million years to evolve feet adapted to different types of terrain. They have footwear to climb mountains, tread through snow, hike across a desert or glide down a catwalk.

They have glasses to overcome the shortcomings of their eyes and filter sunlight. They have telescopes that can see to the end of the universe and microscopes that can see the elements of life. Aided by cameras and screens they can look in on anyone or watch whatever is happening anywhere in the world.

We are technologically enhanced biological forms and evolve our technology to perform ever greater wonders. Unfortunately, we are socially diseased with economic cancer and will probably die out before we can learn to live with the conditions of nature.
