pat omalley Posted over 1 year ago If the cure for mortality is found within your lifetime, would you go for it and become immortal? I was kinda with you until you hit the 'only children can' thing. Actually, humans kind of 'evolve' in spurts. We are not in a big push right now, we are fine tuning what we have. Last big push was probably from 1860-1906. Everything we have today grew out of things developed then. Heck, one of the reasons I am so bored is that there hasn't been any really 'new' music in about thirty years, no really 'new' literary or visual outputs. Human phenotype hasn't changed in thousands of years, we are just better at keeping healthy what was healthy and preventing what isn't healthy so we are taller and live longer. Better diet, medicine. You could say the average person is more intelligent but 17th century man had access in his lifetime to the amount of data you consume in a day. Access to more of anything does not equal evolution.
