Understand our evolution, understand ourselves
Updated: Feb 29
We were the longest of longshots- and we hit.
Don't try to duplicate and track the following times with a stopwatch unless you are extremely patient. It took approximately 13.7 billion years of universe, 4.6 billion years of Earth, and 3.5 billion years of evolving life, one billion Species dead ends, 60 million years of mammals, 20 million years of the great apes, 2.5 million years of ancient pre-Humans as hunter and gatherers, and about 200,000 years of modern Human hunters and gatherers to get to a critical point about 11,000 years ago.
Humans took advantage of the last 11 millennia of accelerated Human social evolution due to the advent of agriculture and larger and often warring populations. We transformed our environments into over 700 billion Human brains mapping perceptions, thoughts, and imagination to create cities, states, nations and sophisticated infrastructure and technology and walk on the moon.
Whether you believe in God or not the true story of our evolution is miraculous. To be Human and to be alive is nothing short of a miracle and we should be thankful and appreciate it daily.
But we have more than a few problems to overcome, and arguably the biggest one is not pollution or famine or war by themselves but the underlying cause for all of our major problems. We parlayed our miraculous ascent into marvelous achievements but also created killing and plundering machines. As we “advance” the risk for catastrophe advances with us.
