Our weaknesses as drivers of humanity
Arent our weaknesses the real drivers of our evolution and of what we are?
we replicate / find partners because we die.
we have legs and arms since we need to constantly move to find food.
our brain evolved for making a model of the world / predicting the behaviour of things and therefore getting more food / more (male) or better (female) sexual partners.
so our brains got bigger and the development of human childs had to go one after birth, so humans different than some animals are dependent on the support of their parents. isnt that the reason that love emerged, as a tool to build partnerships between man and woman to raise a helpless child and between woman and child to guarantee the survival of the child? could that be an explanation of the high divorce rates after some years of being together?
friendship as a tool to connect people, since communities are stronger than individuals.
so all our achievements, intelligence, love, friendship, are just tools for social species like us that improve the probability that the species survives.
