Are there limits to specialisation?
It is clear that there are massive benefits from specialisation.
But do we understand the limits of that?
Are there "diminished returns"?
For instance: do we sacrifice adaptability by adapting?
At what point does deep adaptation(specialisation) put us at risk of becoming too narrowly self-defined to withstand shocks the world presents from left-field?
What are the factors that govern the timespan of specialisation?
How much adaptive specialisation is humanity capable of? And have we already moved out of our league?
