Human Evolution

Filed under: Uncategorized — attaikede @ 7:06 pm

The humans in the movie Wall-E are fat creatures who sit in chairs all day and order their robots to do all their work for them. They have to live in space ships circling the planet Earth because pollution has rendered the planet uninhabitable.

I was thinking .. hmm .. will we evolve into fat blobs engrossed in chitchat?

I hope not. That seems a little depressing.

Here’s my proposal: I think we’ll evolve to be heads. We wont need our bodies anymore because we’ll have a knowledge based telepathic culture. If we have to move from place to place, we’ll just roll our heads around, using our ears like paddles. This could really work! Think about fish .. they don’t have arms! We’ll use our ears like they use their fins. In fact, a ball object is very efficient. It’s such a zen shape.

In this new era, beauty will be determined by the roundness of one’s head. The law of survival of the fittest will ensure that the weirdo square shaped people won’t survive. They won’t be able to roll around!

The one thing I haven’t figured out yet is how reproduction would work. Hmm. Obviously I still have some thinking to do.

  3. Reproduce through saliva mixing! There’ll be this lab where you and your partner go to when you’re ready to have a baby. In the lab they’ll have you each spit in a test tube, extract your DNAs seperatly, split up the double helix and then combine the destructured DNA strands in another test tube and you can watch your baby grow in a fish tank like womb. Test tube babies without eggs or sperms! It’ll be like one of those – ‘just add water and watch me grow’ toys.

  4. Those are great ideas! I think cloning is a bit dangerous.. it would bring evolution to a grinding halt! But i like the salivy mixing one. Mmm.. best way to reproduce is with a little tongue :)
