From ancient times to the present, mankind has had a great dream, that is to fly. People in ancient times saw the birds flying freely in the sky, I believe they were very envious, because being able to fly in the sky has too many survival advantages. With the ability to fly, not only can we better avoid the attacks of some beasts, but more importantly, the place to survive is much wider.
The ability to fly allows us to ignore the influence of various terrains. For example, the land we live on cannot survive. If we want to move to a more prosperous place, we may need to climb over mountains and even cross the ocean. Under such difficult circumstances, it is naturally difficult to achieve migration, but if we can all fly, it will be much more convenient. The reason why the wild geese can continuously migrate from the south and the north every year to avoid climate change is precisely because of them. Has a powerful flying ability.
Although human beings are intelligent life and the overlord of the earth, nature has not given us the ability to fly. This is a regret for mankind, and this regret has allowed us to feel the feeling of flying in the sky after mankind entered the era of science and technology, through the power of science and technology, created a tool that can fly.
Although we can fly with the help of aerial tools such as airplanes, there is still a big difference between this kind of flying and the free flying ability of birds. I believe that everyone in modern times expects to be able to wave their wings freely like a bird and to fly freely in the sky. Although this will give us an extra pair of wings, I believe many people will be very willing.
So how does the flying ability of birds come from? In fact, it is natural evolutionary evolution. The evolutionary evolution of life is a very miraculous existence, and there are countless possibilities. It is believed that the ancestors of birds also evolved through the continuous evolution of terrestrial organisms that could not fly. Since there are terrestrial organisms that can achieve flight through long evolutionary evolution, can humans also do it?
Someone once asked the question: If humans continue to wave their arms back and forth, after millions of years of evolution, is there any hope of flying? We all understand that the bird’s wing itself is also an external organ tissue, and the choice of biological evolution direction is one of the changes in the natural ecological environment, and the other is the embodiment of the biological activities.
Let’s take human ancestors as an example. If the roots are traced back to hundreds of millions of years ago, there were no terrestrial life on the earth at that time, only marine life. Afterwards, the ecological environment has undergone tremendous changes. In order to survive, some marine organisms began to develop continuously to the land. At this time, these marine fishes evolved fins.
Fish fins allow them to move on land, and as time goes by, the evolution of fish fins becomes more and more obvious, becoming stronger and stronger, and finally evolved into the limbs of terrestrial organisms. In other words, the ancestors of today’s terrestrial organisms actually evolved from marine fish, and the ancestors of human beings also evolved from marine organisms.
So how did apes evolve into humans? In fact, changes in the ecological environment have forced some apes to step out of the forest and start living on the plains. For survival in the plains, the requirements for the hind limbs are more important, so these apes use their hind limbs more often. The forelimbs and hind limbs continue to differentiate, and finally they learn to walk upright.
Darwin’s theory of biological evolution also tells us that the environment plays a very important role in the evolution of a life. When a creature often uses a certain organ, the organ will become more and more developed, which will speed up the evolution process. . By the same token, if some organs are not used frequently, they will continue to degenerate in the process of evolution and eventually disappear.
All living things will constantly improve their bodies in this way, and eventually evolve into a new species, and pass this species down from generation to generation. A bird’s flying wings may have been just a prominent external organ a long time ago. Because the ancestors of birds often used this organ, the evolution of this organ accelerated, became stronger and stronger, and finally evolved into a pair of wings. , With the ability to fly.
Therefore, theoretically speaking, if humans constantly wave their arms, their arms will become stronger and stronger, and they will continue to evolve. After millions of years, it is possible to evolve a pair of wings. There are too many such examples in nature. For example, giraffes have so long necks to survive and to eat higher leaves. The ancestors of giraffes often craned their necks and kept pulling up their necks to eat leaves. This organ of the neck became stronger and stronger, and it also evolved in the direction of constant lengthening.
Of course, in theory, although humans continue to wave their arms back and forth, it is possible to evolve a pair of wings after countless years, but according to the research of scientists, this possibility is very small in reality. The reason is that there is no organization on the human back for the evolution of wings. If we wave our arms back and forth, after millions of years, our arms will evolve to become stronger. It is a fact that there is no doubt.
But to evolve a pair of wings, it may not be possible to rely on the power of nature. Because in the direction of the evolution of nature to humans, the gene sequence of a pair of wings has not evolved. If this is the case, does it mean that humans will never have the ability to fly freely in the future? Of course not.
Although nature does not endow humans with the ability to fly, powerful technological forces may help us achieve it. We all know that the essence of everything in the world cannot be separated from science, and the mystery of life cannot escape the scope of science. Birds have wings to be able to fly. Fundamentally speaking, they are supported by genes. Birds have genes for flying.
After mankind entered the age of science and technology, he began to explore the mysteries of biological genes. In the future, it is also a high probability event that humans will continue to transform themselves through genetic technology. At that time, perhaps we can implant the genes for birds to fly, so that humans can grow a pair of wings and have the ability to fly like birds. .
Someone might say, didn’t we become bird people at that time? Although the term Birdman is not very popular, I believe that no one can resist the temptation of a flying ability. Moreover, with the continuous advancement of science and technology, in the future, if human beings want to gain the ability to fly, they may not need to have wings. Maybe we can do it without wings. In the world of science, in the world of genes, everything is possible.
If in the future genetic technology can allow you to obtain a pair of wings and thus have the ability to fly, would you be willing?
