The evolution is not over but the race will be over soon. 😅 

I worry about this one too.  My big question is will I die soon enough to not have to go through the impending horror.  Actuarial you’re I’m supposed to live another 30 years.  I’m not sure I want to.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

kinda slower, cause there is no natural selection everybody has babies with who what where when, there is no survival of the fittest human, it's all just a soup of people now. it evloves but going to be more like a buffet of everything

There is still natural selection just the selective pressures are different then the past. Mate selection is also determined by selection pressures of today. However we still have a lot of our ancestral ways of thinking. Look up some evolutionary psych stuff it’s pretty interesting. There’s also a part about female dual mating strategy where when they are fertile prefer mating with people who have better genetics then when they aren’t prefer males with better parental investment. We see this in modern day as well. Remember always get paternal tests kids.

 

If I have the time I’ll dig up some academic articles about it if I have time.

For women maybe. For men, you just need to be filthy rich. No other attributes neccessary.

I personally think you can argue  we are devolving.

 

We are getting dumber, and lazy as a society.

 

There is also is some evidence of this,

True, Homo sapien neanderthalensis actually have larger brain and stronger body(as in stronger bone and bulkier muscle) than homo sapien sapien.

Yes and no. If this were the cause dual mating strategies wouldnt exist. Its a bit more complicated then just resources. I recommend reading more evolutionary psych studies; I assume your mgtow go look up some reading on mgtow and evolutionary psych if you want a more detailed answer. Mate selection is far more complicated then just resources.

Some have argued to at least enforce certain restrictions on people in your society that have clearly proved not to be in possession of enough sanity, for whatever reason possible.... Since I've been playing cities, or other city simulators I have a distinct feeling that all things considered... you do need people for those low grade filthy jobs right ? though the sense of balance seems to be out of hand if you take some countries for example... basing your entire culture upon satisfying the illusion for the working class, like " really? " this can be smarter done! 
different selection factors do now necessarily mean not an upgrade in evolution. Maybe evolution is also not a straight upwards line though yea, if the big monkey is the one that reproduces the most, lemmings are sure to appear on the horizon.... And to be clear, it does seem that females are portrayed as mindless creatures in such equations which to a certain degree holds true but does in no way mean that women need to be treated as such!   

Upgrade is an overloaded term. What is good in one context is bad in another - the T-rex was a mighty killer who dominated its landscape. The moment the landscape shifted, it was just a big, bulky, inefficient version of a chicken that couldn't get enough food to support itself. 

Different selection factors produce different outcomes. 
Evolution is basically just outcomes shifting over time.

We are?  What's getting revolutionaried exactly?  I think technical advances are extremely stagnant since 50 years or so and most "new inventions"  are gimmicks at best.

You uh... you realize that your smartphone has more computing power than a supercomputer from 50 years ago, right?

 

The Guidance Computer on the Apollo missions literally had a 2000 word RAM limit (it had deeper storage for 36,000 words too).

 

So yeah... if you were to say the last 20 years, that might have been reasonable, but 50 years? Yeah no.

That is however not a revolution, it's just tech evolving,  the people back then achieved more with less advanced tech,  nowadays tech is just not very exciting to me,  4k,  3d helmets...  Even smartphones have long plateaued. 

 

Edit: Actually,  if we look at computer tech,  I'd agree, between 1970 and 2000 huge advancements have been made,  but overall I think I was pretty spot on with "50 years"

There have been plenty of "revolutions" in the tech world in the last 50 years. Examples include stuff like 64 bit computing, AI (actual neural net AI), quantum computing, self-driving technology, etc.

 

Additionally, there have been massive revolutions in space technology in particular in the last decade, with self-landing reusable rockets, among other things.

Ah I think revolution just doesn't mean the same thing to us.  

 

Those are particularly slight evolutionary advances to me.  Also I thought space exploration has slowed down dramatically - I'd say the current space station is exactly what I'd call a gimmick. 

 

"self driving technology"  also not revolutionary at all,  and even more a gimmick currently

Yep - it was a cheap way for them to build a supercomputer, and the early versions could run Linux. It was cheaper than building a traditional super computer, since at the time, multi-core processors were incredibly expensive, and the Cell processor was fairly advanced for the time - and it was based on PowerPC tech from IBM, so the software wouldn't require too much modification.

Lol we all go boom soon and it starts from scratch. Sad part is red shift will be so large we wont detect most things in about 10 million years and even before that our universe goes boom so yk keep living dont spend 10 years to make 5.

 

but dont live in no superficial lie we aint here for no reason but no discussion on that.

A bout the only thing on my list you could conceivably call "evolutionary" is 64-bit computing (especially since we've already gone through several similar iterations, including 8-bit and 16-bit computing).

 

But AI and Quantum Computers are revolutionary, period. They aren't slight evolutionary advances in any sense of the word.

The Space Station is also mostly pretty old tech now - from the 90's and early 2000's. Though it does advance a lot of our scientific understanding, since they perform all kinds of experiments there every day.

How so? You can call it a gimmick if you want, but it is most certainly revolutionary technology.

Uhm... our universe (even locally, our galaxy) is going to last a lot longer than 10 million years.

 

Hell, our local sun should last another 5 billion years before starting to die out, and the "dying" process will take millions of years.

You kinda seem to mistake evolution and revolution...

 

A self driving car is the logical continuation of our current tech,  people were thinking and trying this since a long time,  it's the opposite of a revolution how I see it.  A revolution has to be kinda unforeseen to be that. 

 

Something you didn't think was possible... 

 

 

We know self driving cars are possible (and existed)  for a very long time. 

 

Also it's not exciting or anything it's just cringe - and dangerous as heck on top of it

No we're becoming more and more advanced in the space technology in the near future.  Soon we will be setting up bases in space to prevent future missile attacks from Russia/China or North Korea.  Back in the Cold War we were not able to do this.  So the human race is getting more and more advanced.

in only 4 million years we gonna crash into andromeda.

 

That's our entire galaxy - g o n e . No coming back from that.

 

But you know what they say. In i cant say what number years when everything is gone and its all explosive dark energy, we have 0.00000000000016 or some silly number percent of a reaction happening like big bang again.

 

But its infinite energy - its per hundred doesn't count if there's unlimited hundreds. All this will happen again, and again and again. And each time it will be exactly the same as exactly the same reaction and process of events so we will do all this again and again and these aren't even my beliefs and im gonna sign off now...
