The Genus Homo
Transcript of The Genus Homo
Now lets look on some theoretical evidences of Evolution...
200,000 years ago
If we could know about
some more evolution
And now, the best part.....
How could we forget environmental preservation....??
Homo futuris- The FUTURE of
the genus Homo
JUST IMAGINE !!!
BRAND NEW CHARACTERISTICS !!!?
OK, not all that
easy too imagine.
Natural selection still exits.
Some eminent premonitions :
A documentary says that the cerebrum part of the brain of the future humans will be 40 times of our present one but at the same time their cerebellum part would be decreased that means they would be very very extraordinary but there would not be any kind of body structure and rigidity i.e. they are a big extraordinary meat ball that cannot loco mote.
A philosophy known as transhumanism sees humans taking charge of their evolution and changing their biological limitations via technology. Transhumanism raises a spectacular array of possibilities, from supersoldiers and new breeds of athletes to immortal beings who, having had their brains scanned atom by atom, transfer their minds to computers.
If we had spacefaring people who went on one- way voyages to distant stars, that might be enough to trigger speciation.
Wisdom teeth are beginning to disappear. In fact, 35 percent of people are already born without wisdom teeth. Many others are born with just one, two or three wisdom teeth. When a trait is no longer necessary, evolution tends to favor the elimination of that trait to save on the unnecessary energy expenditure it takes to develop it. Thus, humans of the future may lack wisdom teeth entirely.
Breeding now regularly occurs among people whose ancestors may have originated from opposite corners of the planet. One result of gene flow is that genetic differences between populations tend to disappear. In other words, racial differences are likely to blend together. Humans of the future may look a lot more alike than they do today.
Clothing, along with modern technology such as air conditioning and heating, has made the insulating properties of body hair obsolete. It is likely that humans of the future will have much less body hair than they do today.
There is currently a sufficient selective pressure in place to make humans of the future better adapted to heavy diets, and thus more resistant to these diseases.
One trait that is a top candidate for elimination is our physical strength. Humans no longer require robust muscles to perform feats of strength. We now have machines, and other tools of our ingenuity, for those tasks. In fact, studies have already shown that we are much weaker compared to our distant ancestors. Future humans may therefore be more petite than we are today.
For similar reasons, future humans may also have weakened immune systems and be more susceptible to pathogens. Modern medical te
hnology and the discovery of antibiotics have greatly increased our health and life expectancy, but they also mean our immune systems need to do less work to keep us healthy. Biologically speaking, our immune systems are less necessary than they used to be. Therefore, humans of the future may become more dependent on medical technology.
