My passion lies within the boundaries of the human species and its development as a superorganism much like how the cells within our own bodies form our own individual identities.
What does the evolution of the human species entail? The traditional Darwinist perspective focuses mainly on the passing of and acquisition of traits whilst leaving behind ones that are no longer applicable, and that such a process occurs over many generations gradually. But this perspective of evolution needs to change.
As the world has grown smaller with the human population growing larger more and more of the traits traditionally deemed as worth keeping are shifting from the realm of the biological to the realm of the social. We are no longer evolving biologically. We are evolving socially. If anything we are reversing the trends of biological evolution through the advancement of medicine, which allows those that would previously perish to survive.
The future of social evolution entails that the preservation of life becomes a primary goal meaning cooperation will begin to exceed competition in the biological sense. Where competition will shift to is the social realm.
I am most interested in the future of humanity as a collective being and how cooperation will change the way we evolve and develop because it will allow the true potential of humanity to flourish.
Some people might be surprised that I am a good cook but not such a great cleaner. I also love to write music, play video games, watch films, and create things. I am a creator.
