The earth is a world of life rich in species, and intelligent life mankind was born millions of years ago. After the birth of mankind, thinking about life has continued, and some wise men in ancient times are also constantly thinking: How did life come about? How did humans come?
Due to the lack of scientific guidance, the ancients attributed the origin of life to gods, so there are many myths and legends about the creation of people, such as the legend of Nuwa in our country. With the continuous development of human civilization, we entered the path of scientific development hundreds of years ago. At this time, some scientists began to explore and think about the origin of mankind. Among them, Darwin finally put forward the famous theory of evolution after constant travels and discoveries.
Darwin’s theory of evolution believes that life on the earth develops through continuous evolutionary evolution, and that human beings have also evolved from the initial low-level life, after a long evolutionary evolution, and finally become intelligent life. It can be said that the theory of evolution has pointed out the direction for us to study the mysteries of life. Scientists follow this direction, continue to explore and research, and have achieved many major achievements.
The core of life development is evolutionary evolution. In theory, every kind of organism is undergoing evolutionary evolution all the time. Seeing this, many people may say: If this is the case, then why do we not feel the evolution? This problem is not complicated.
We have to understand that the promoter of the evolution of life is nature, which competes with the sky, and the law of survival of the fittest is urging life to evolve in different directions. Four billion years ago, the earliest single-celled life was born near volcanic hot springs in the ocean.
These primitive life evolved continuously in the marine environment, and the types of life were gradually enriched. The last part of marine life went to land. In order to adapt to the natural environment of the land, the talent of marine life was abandoned and evolved into various organs adapted to terrestrial life. And organization.
The natural environment of the land is more complicated, and each region has its own different ecological environment. After the terrestrial organisms prospered, they began to spread all over the world. In a new environment, nature has prompted these life to complete the evolutionary evolution of adapting to the local environment, so the original species differentiated into multiple species.
Although these species are different in appearance, they have a common origin. The same is true for the origin of mankind. Millions of years ago, some apes walked out of the forest and began to live in the plains. In order to adapt to life on the plains and survive better, nature chose to allow these apes to evolve toward wisdom.
When these apes embarked on the path of intelligent evolution, they did not all gather to survive in one place, but chose to survive in different areas. Due to different living environments, they have evolved into different intelligent races on the path of wisdom evolution.
Therefore, among the intelligent species on the earth, the ancestor of human beings, Homo sapiens, is not the only one, and in millions of years, there have been multiple intelligent species. However, in the subsequent continuous development, only Homo sapiens finally developed and evolved into modern humans. All other races became extinct and became the dust of history.
Scientists have found that the brain capacity of Homo sapiens tens of thousands of years ago was almost the same as that of modern humans, basically close to the same. So many people think that human evolution may have stopped long ago. Is this really the case? If you think so, you are wrong.
In fact, the evolution of mankind has not stopped. It has been going on from a million years ago to the present. Even the human beings more than a thousand years ago and the current human beings, if you study carefully, you will find many The difference. For example, human Fabry bones have disappeared for a long time, but since modern times, scientists have found that since the last century, the number of people who own Fabry bones has been on the rise, and has now grown from 10% in the world to 39 today. %.
The rapid increase in the number of Fabry bones also shows that human beings have been constantly evolving. This situation is actually very normal. As we said earlier, the driving force of biological evolution is nature. As long as the natural environment is constantly changing, the evolution of life will not stop.
The faster the ecological environment changes, the faster the evolution of life will naturally be. After mankind entered the industrial age, the rapid development of industry has an increasingly greater impact on the ecological environment, and the extent of changes in nature has also become greater. Under this situation, although the rate of extinction of life is also accelerating, the The next creatures are also accelerating their evolutionary evolution in order to adapt to the rapidly changing environment.
In addition to the rapid evolution of organisms caused by environmental factors, the impact of human technology on the evolution of life is becoming more and more obvious. For example, nuclear radiation can cause many animals to have obvious characteristics of mutation. This kind of mutation is actually one of the same. Kind of evolutionary evolution.
The reason why we don’t feel the occurrence of evolutionary evolution is because no matter how fast natural evolution takes place, it will take at least tens of thousands of years. This is a relatively fast evolution. Most of the time, it takes at least millions of years for organisms to become another species. It takes a long time for evolution to appear in organisms, so we cannot feel the evolution of human beings.
It’s just that human beings are intelligent lives and have already embarked on the road of science and technology. The power of science and technology is believed to be known to everyone. The mystery of anything cannot escape science, and the mystery of life is naturally the same. After mankind has entered the age of science and technology, various life researches and explorations are constantly being carried out, especially the mysteries of life’s core genes.
The essence of life is where genes play a role. Gene mutations are the essence of life evolution. Under normal circumstances, gene mutations are changes in the natural environment. But after human beings enter the technological era, we can use genetic technology to change genetic mutations or other genetic directions.
The addition of human technology has allowed the evolution of life to make independent choices, thereby accelerating the evolution of life. How to follow the future evolutionary path of mankind, more we will not rely on nature, but use technology to evolve excellent choices. We must know that the evolution of nature is full of uncertainties, good and bad will happen to human beings.
If we use genetic technology to select, then our evolutionary direction can be optimized, inheriting and evolving the good, and discarding the bad. Even in the future, we will be able to transfer some of the powerful abilities of other organisms to humans through genetic technology, so that we will all become superhumans.
Many friends may be worried that if genetic technology is used to evolve, will the future human beings become a monster without being human? In fact, this kind of worry is unnecessary. Human genetic technology has matured. When we choose the direction of evolution, we will also attach great importance to the appearance and characteristics of human beings. We will maintain the appearance of human beings instead of evolving into a monster. .
The completed human life body is not only optimized and powerful internally, but also requires perfection in appearance. Therefore, in the future human society, ugly men and women will basically disappear. With powerful genetic technology, everyone can become Good looking men and beautiful women. Unless someone has a special hobby and actively asks himself to become a monster, we can naturally meet this requirement.
