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

“What if we weren’t around?”
I sometimes think about what life would be like if people disappeared from Earth. My intrigue sparked when I first saw the television show on the Discovery Channel Life After People. It was a one hour show that would explain what happens if people were to vanish from Earth. The show talked about the animals would reclaim the land, and how long it would take for the building we built to collapse. Almost immediately, grass and trees would grow into the buildings and engulf vehicles. What’s the most interesting is how long would it take to cover up any reminisces of our existence? Will that time ever come where people won’t be here on Earth? What would an Earth without us look like?
As time progress, in a few billions years the sun is suspected to swallow up Earth. My question is, will there be people on Earth when this happens? If so, can you imagine the hell they’ll go through when this happens. But, if you know anything remotely about the science involved, people will be dead long before this happens. Well why, why would people be dead long before this happens? It’s from the fact that we only have a limited room for growth and only so many resources that contribute to our quality of life. And because the Earth is a living breathing organism in itself. So it can’t last forever, yet it’s traveling through the cosmos to God knows you where. But speaking of God, that sounds like an interesting theory. Could religion possibly be right, or maybe not?
Or, what if people die out here, but the evolution starts over once again. Maybe, because after the sun engulfs the Earth, other planets will eventually follow suit. Then the universe will reach a point where the universe can no longer expand, then we will have yet another big bang. The universe will sustain back to its original state and expand once again. Then there will be yet another ability for evolution to take hold. Could that possibly mean as human die off, we will reemerge. Or is it possible that the universe has expanded beyond capacity before and we are leftover from some previous universe?
In the end, a world without people is hard to comprehend to us, but not in the universe. We are very small in the grand scheme of things. Humans on Earth are like a grain of sand on a beach, and Earth in the universe is a grain of sand on an even bigger beach. So our existence or nonexistence is small, but my intrigue is open nonetheless.
