DANGEROUSLY SMART: THE MORE EDUCATED WE BECOME THE MORE PROBLEMS WE CAUSE

black-and-white, blackboard, business

“We get smarter, and we get more dangerous.”


learning to scale

The more educated we become the farther away from ourselves we get as people. You would think that the education would make us better. But what we have done is become more aware, yet distant at the same time. Our educated minds create technology meant to bring us closer together, yet it’s the mediums that binds us.

doing more

Are we not doing more with our learning? We send our children to schools to learn, but what. What are they really learning? Are they genuinely learning material that will have a positive impact or negative one? They able to used smart devices better than their parents, but are we not utilizing their abilities to its full potential. Should we be doing more are we doing enough?

negative externalities

When what we learn is not utilized in the appropriate manner, we worsen society. When the more learned and understood of the masses ignore morals and principles that have aided us thus far, we lose a piece of ourselves. For example, we educate ourselves in this new tech space. But now people are creating dating apps that break conventional dating norms. And what it has done was create an impersonal for of communication.

growth

Our brains will grown because we are constantly evolving and trying to make sense of the world around us. But the more we learn about ourselves the more educated we become the more we become slaves to our own vulnerability.

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.

HUMAN REPRODUCTION: HOW DID THE FIRST HUMANS KNOW SEX LED TO MORE PEOPLE

Image result for human reproduction

“How did we figure it out?”


reproduction

Upon ejaculation the sperm enters the vagina and sticks to the walls. There is no guarantee that the sperm will get her pregnant, but for the sake of the topic let’s say she does. Of the millions of sperm that make the destination, only one will fertilize the egg. And once that happens, over the course of 9 months a baby is born into the womb of a woman. Then, when it’s time, a child will be brought into this world. That child will grow and most likely give life, thus the continuation of the human chain of existence. Now my question is, how did the first humans manage to make it happen?  How did the first people manage to know that sex would create a human? What was the thing that they attempted which made them engage in sex.

accidental intercourse

What if we found out about sex by accident? Maybe we were trying to figure things out as humans would today, and stumbled upon procreation. The discovery of anything has come by way of accident. Human arousal is the same as any other mammal. And yet we tried numerous ways to cope with this sense of arousal. As with a monkey placing a stick in a hole to try to worm out ants, that is an accident in itself. You see this being of the opposite sex, not understanding why we feel a certain way, we test things out. The sense of touch has aided man in figuring out a lot. But once they figured out that intercourse not only created humans, but brought about pleasure, it became paramount to our existence.

in the know

Once we became aware, it was time to expand beyond our borders into other areas. Because the curiosity about ourselves became more important. Also the numbers of us grew into greater amounts, so we moved out from which we initially dwell. But putting ourselves in the know does not only aid us in the past, but also in the future to come. And what’s crazy, there are families we will never know their existence because they didn’t figure it out and died off.

TOO MUCH SELF AWARENESS: ARE WE BECOMING TOO IN THE KNOW

anatomy, biology, eye

“We were made to learn; but this much, really?”


INTRODUCTORY 

The more we become aware of who we are, are we starting to see humanity become more and more depressed? Are we hitting this point where we are so in the know that it’s bringing people down? Because if you are a science buff, then you have reason to believe that people are not going anywhere special after death. And if that is to be held as factual over time, then how will that fair with man knowing that this is it? Or, are we going to see the complete opposite? People may become more empathetic once we fill that this is it for us on Earth.

EVIDENCE

Graphical chart

The chart below shows the science of the way in which humanity has evolved in the mind over time.

The chart was made using the information found on the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

The information above was found from the → Smithsonian website regarding how the brain has evolved over time. The independent dots represent the different stages of human evolution, while the dots attached to lines shows what happened between that time years ago.

  • At the highest point we are at 4 – 6 million years ago when scientist stated that brain size increased giving us the ability to walk upright and make simple tools.
  • The second point shows where the brain and the body increases with respect to each other about 2 million to 800,000 years ago. At a time where we also ventured throughout the globe and came in contact with many different ways of life and survival.
  • Then the third point is represented by the lowest point; and this is where we experienced the climate change and how we as humans adapted to our surroundings as well as our interactions with each other. A time where life was unpredictable and the brain had to adjust; 200,000 to 800,000 years ago.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

All of this information we have and will have in the future means that once we continue to experience shifts and changes in climate and our relationships with each other grows, so will our brains. And once you get in the know it’s impossible to go backward. But will it make people more depressed and more vulnerable? So far, we have lasted this long on Earth and we have learned and continue to learn every step of the way. So being too in the know is only scary to generations who have lived a long time on Earth and watch drastic change from when they were young. We aren’t knowing too much too soon, you are just getting old and can’t handle it, and you’re rejecting new information that you believed for so long to be false.

MENTAL EVOLUTION: IS THE BRAIN STILL EVOLVING

Related image“Is there still room for growth?”


We as humans have been evolving for millions of years. But have we hit a wall and are now devolving? Because when I look at how we use technology and how we communicate, I’m starting to see this weird trend. It’s almost as if people have this amazing technology, but they are using it to push us backward instead of forward. We argue, we fight, and we use it to kill. Now the few chosen people who use it build will always grow. But what about the rest? Or, maybe I’m just being paranoid because we are living in real time.

COULD IT REALLY BE THAT BAD?

Because living in real time, everything seems bad, until we look back in time. But let me ask you a question, do you feel that life is going backward? Or could it be that also we are in the testing period of all this great technology. In the testing period, we appear to be going backward, but really we’re working out all the kinks. What we could be seeing are the defective people who are using technology in the wrong manner. And it is causing us to appear like moving backward is real. But are we really?

IMPOSSIBLE TO GO BACK

Now, if you know anything about science, you would know, it’s not possible to digress. And the reason being that once you open people’s minds to the possibilities, you can never go back. It’s impossible to go back to eight track tapes once you see the magic of digital. It’s impossible to go back to life where women were forced to be at home now that women have a position in our workforce. And with that said, the mind continues to expand, especially the more we build and the more we challenge ourselves. The mind can’t stop evolving because every generation is looking to outshine the previous.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THOSE WHO DON’T CHANGE

For the regions of the world that never shift, you’re going to have a large demographic of people stuck in limbo. And one reason is because as science and technology shifts, their beliefs don’t change. And the evolution of the mind of these places are going to get left behind. But like I said, we don’t digress with the human brain. So what will happen, those who refuse to change won’t have to worry about enemies, their own youth will fight back. Then you’ll be stuck in a decision to fight them or deal; and to continue the civilization, you will have to deal.
