CAN WE LEARN FROM THE PAST?

 

What is the future for man on Earth?  As the only truly intelligent species on the planet, can we learn from our mistakes - or are we out of our depth?  It's an important question, because as masters of technology and the dominant life-form we have the ability to annihilate other life forms and the environment that supports them as we plunder all that around us in the name of profit.

 

What happen when we've used up all our aces?  When the oil runs out.  What happens when the tide turns against us - a tide that we've helped to create with poor energy management leading to global warming?

 

We could plan to plunder or colonise other planets as predicted in many science fiction stories.  But is that really practical?  Could a series of flat-pack space stations contain every species on Earth, like one giant Noah's Ark, with energy and food supplies to guarantee survival of mankind.  If that were possible, and the limitation is here again our natural resources, would it actually yield an energy or materials profit, or perhaps put those astronauts at considerable risk during a journey into the unknown?

 

 

 

Homo Sapiens - Out of his depth?

 

 

Man evolved over millions of years to be a hunter and problem solver.  His female counterpart is a nest maker and socialite.  Surely, with a combination of these skills and a good dose of common sense we might join hands as nations united to solve a common problem, instead of constantly fighting each other for political brownie points.  We should perhaps respect each others beliefs and accept each others right to hold such beliefs dear as a prerequisite to achieving environmental stability.

 

 

 


 

 

Many agree that our biological roles are no longer relevant in this day and age, where anyone with ability gets the lead role and indeed, the gentler sex, with their multi-tasking brain possibly has an advantage when it comes to communication.  It is a biological fact that men cannot multi-task with their brains, simply because they are wired differently in order to fulfill their primary function as a hunter - a lunch chaser.  

 

Women are hard wired to communicate and monitor the nest, which requires them to be able to monitor several activities at once.  For this reason the female of the species has wider peripheral vision, the male's focus in dead ahead, designed to focus on the kill.  A woman's brain has many more connections between left and right lobes than a male.  It's a bit like a computer with two hard drives, left and right.  The male computer has one ATA 130 ribbon cable linking hard drives, the female has two serial ATA cables passing information between drives.  This is not myth, this is now proven scientific fact, made possible by real time brain scan studies.

 

Fascinating though this is, understanding the differences in our make-up will not save the planet................
