Choong Yu Jun Posted over 1 year ago Biology vs. Technology: What's your opinion? Ok, just a simple chain of questions here regarding evolution of the human brain... 1. During ancient times, did people count as fast as people living in post- modern societies? 2. Can you multiply 5 digit numbers by another set of numbers with the same number of digits under 20 seconds? Or will you rely on the calculator to do it for you? 3. Regarding question 2: - If you can do them with your brain, then your brain has evolved to deal with complex calculations. - Solve it with a calculator? Then your brain has just experienced devolution, or it hasn't evolved to that stage at all.
