THE NEW US: IS THERE A SPECIES STILL EVOLVING THAT WILL RIVAL US IN TIME

“We fight now, but might need each other later.”


evolving

The debate is open on human evolution. But what is more intriguing to me is what if there is another species evolving later, like now. What if another species is evolving and we could potentially be competition for them. How would humanity fair in a world where we are now the hunted and something else or someone else is the hunter? That would mean that we are now forced to come together to fight something that we have in common that is a detriment to our species. How would this likely effect us even if we were to be able to defeat the common enemy?

cooperation

Man ventured out and over time reintroduced ourselves not knowing how we left to start with in history. Meaning when man left Africa into Europe, once the two sides met again, one took on a totally different look than the original. So to the opposing sides they were hostiles, but were really distant family. Problem with another species competing with man, is that all that we have ever experienced must be set aside for cooperation. How do you cooperate in a world that made you feel as if you were fighting each other over something important. So, we would actually be prey for a while before we realized we were being hunted because we have fought each other for so long.

forms of evolved species

We seem to think that species has to be human in form to overtake us. But we are in a different form than the food we consume. So maybe the form of the species could potentially exist in a form of something close to us, a family pet. It all sounds sci-fi, but we are here why not anything else just as dominant. I guess I am thinking about this because man is not a special as we think we are; there are more powerful forces. So to think about one being the prey to a greater predator is not far fetched. Maybe not in 100 years or even 1,000 years, but how about 100,000 to 500,000 years into the future? But you’ll never get that through the minds of people until it’s too late.

QUID PRO QUO: HOW BARTERING CAN AID IN GOOD BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY RELATIONSHIPS

Image result for quid pro quo

“I will gladly pay you tomorrow for your services today.”


The quid pro quo system goes back as far as we can remember as people. Another name for this is the barter system. And if applied the right way, quid pro quo can be a very productive measure of conducting business. But it involves a lot of cooperation and people must for the most part be on the same page. Because a great system of trading goods and services can easily get quite messy. This method of business can be very beneficial to a poor community where the community does not have many resources. You might have a loaf of bread and your neighbor might have a gallon of milk. You guys could trade slices of bread for this person to make a sandwich, for a certain amount of milk so this person can bake. Now, could that work in today’s society like in the past?

And my answer to that is absolutely it could. But like I said before, you need cooperation and like minded people. If you have these similar character traits then you’re going to have a pretty productive environment. Because now, money is not the only precious commodity in our communities. If you are trading goods and services for other goods and services, then the good and service is valuable. And for the most part, people are trading for things outside of housing expenses and not household. What do I mean by housing and not household. The housing expenses are priorities such as rent, mortgage, utilities; whereas the household expenses are bath soap, toothpaste, lotions, deodorants to food and beverages. This is how everyone in the community will be able to live and work together. Not only that, but if I can only pay rent, but I can provide a service to you in exchange for food, I don’t have to worry about monetary expense.

Meaning, let’s say after I pay my rent and utilities, I have a hard time feeding my children. But I can provide a service to a neighbor in exchange for food. You give me what a babysitter would get paid in food. So let’s say a babysitter charges $15 per hour, I will babysit your child for four hours. In exchange, you give me close to $60 worth of food. Because the babysitter may not have food, but could babysit for the person who has food, but need a babysitter. You will do each other such a service by operating in this fashion. Another action that will take place is a close nit community that is based around people helping each other. But inevitably, in our today’s society this does not work.

And in the end, the reason why quid pro quo has a tough time being implemented is because you’re going to have someone not repaying the favor. You’ll have someone not giving the equal value of product and service. You’ll have people who always want more than someone else. So the human conditioning is what keeps the barter system from working. And what’s said is that the poor communities in America could use this means of trading. If implemented well, no one starves or is forced to sleep in the street because they don’t have a roof over their heads.
