More > unexpected field – computer science. Delicate living systems and bulky computers, according to a growing body of research, are both information systems engaged in the storage, transmission, and processing of information. This shared characteristic of life systems and our information technology devices gives us an opportunity to study human evolution using concepts from computer science. Such analysis points to the existence of an important ‘invisible’ adaptation in human beings. This ‘invisible’ adaptation is the reason we evolved to be cultural beings, who are altruistic, who value equality, and our aging elders. www.altruism-evolution.com< Less

More > our impact on nature. He explains how they account for some of the environmental evils of our time, with suggestions as to how we may be able to alleviate them. The civilised, or rather, self-domesticated humans managed to do away with nearly all the usual factors of natural selection.

Then learn from our mistakes and faults, forswear our crimes and attempt to atone for them.< Less
