What is the next step of human evolution?
Since the emergence of the homo-sapiens from the tree of life, I have not been able to find much of a difference between generations. Aside from the creation of language, assimilation to countries, the agricultural and industrial revolution, we as a species have not changed. Yes, these do seem like drastic changes, and they are; however, biologically and psychologically have we changed? I would say no we haven't. There has always been a leader of the tribe, some form of greed arguably stemming from the accumulation of wealth. All people have these desires even with the proliferation of religion. In thousands of years our human nature has not changed. I am not sure if we are destined to fail as an organism or we have greater feats ahead of us. With the technological innovation of genetic modification and designer babies, maybe our desire for greatness can in fact, change the course of evolution and rewrite the pages of Darwinism. Quite possibly we may diverge into another branch on the tree of life and be part machine. The biology of our body dictates we can't live forever even with drugs. The only thing that continuously exists is energy, which our brain waves exist as. Maybe down the road technology will give us the capability of existing forever which unfortunately is in the back of many peoples heads. Death us the ultimate fear which drives many decisions. With that being said, i may be completely wrong or just impatient to see what we as a species can turn into, good or bad.
