The earth is a world of species-rich life. In addition to intelligent life humans, there are more than millions of various creatures. Humans are also mammals in essence, and mammals are the mainstream of the animal kingdom and occupy an absolute advantage in the biological chain. This is just like 65 million years ago when the mainstream creatures on earth were dinosaurs.
The dinosaurs 65 million years ago were the absolute hegemons on the earth. They dominated the earth for 160 million years. After the extinction of dinosaurs, mammals rose, and finally humans were born through evolutionary evolution. Although dinosaurs and humans were the hegemons of the earth in different periods, they depended on different to dominate the earth.
Dinosaurs rely on their powerful physical strength to stand at the top of the food chain and become the hegemon of the earth, while humans rely on advanced wisdom to stand at the top of the food chain and become the new hegemon on the earth. Human wisdom allows us to understand teamwork, learn to make and use tools, especially after entering the era of science and technology, human beings have a variety of powerful weapons. In front of these powerful weapons, no powerful beast can threaten us.
I believe that many of my friends have been to the zoo. In the zoo, we saw a lot of powerful animals, such as tigers and monkeys, etc. These animals can be called under one person and above all animals. In the animal kingdom, they are the king at the top of the food chain, second only to humans. Of course, we also know that humans cannot beat tiger monkeys if they fight with their bare hands.
Someone might say, didn’t Wu Song’s fight against a tiger defeat a mighty tiger with his bare hands? In fact, this is just a plot in a novel. Have you ever heard of such a thing in the real world? Humans want to defeat tigers, if they do not use weapons, unless the tigers themselves are too hungry or have suffered serious injuries. In this case, humans have a chance to defeat the tigers with bare hands.
Seeing this, some friends may have such an interesting question: If you do not use any tools with your bare hands, what animals can an ordinary human be able to defeat at most? This question is very interesting. I believe many of my friends would like to know, as the overlord of the earth, where human beings can rank in the animal kingdom completely relying on their own physical strength?
If you think that human body strength is not the highest in the animal kingdom, but should be ranked in the middle, then you are wrong. If we talk about physical strength alone, humans are really not ranked high in the animal world. If they are calculated by weight, humans can rank in the middle of the animal world, second only to mammals such as elephants, bears, tigers and lions.
But if it’s about combat effectiveness, then humans are ranked relatively low, perhaps at most the middle and lower. I believe that many friends like to watch boxing matches. Boxing contestants with different weights should be assigned to different groups. Two contestants with very different weights are not allowed to box. The reason is simple. Under normal circumstances, the size of the weight directly determines the size of the strength.
The same is true in the animal kingdom. Larger animals tend to have stronger combat effectiveness. The reason why elephants can be called a terrestrial overlord is that their weight is much higher than that of other animals. Compared with the weight of elephants, tigers and lions also It’s much worse. Therefore, a tiger lion alone can’t beat an elephant at all, and a tiger lion can dominate the forest and grassland mainly because their weight occupies an absolute advantage.
So with human body weight, can you defeat an animal of the same weight as ours with bare hands? The answer is very difficult, and ordinary people simply can’t do it. Even master fighters who have received strict professional training can hardly beat those beasts of the same weight as themselves, let alone ordinary people.
For humans, if we want to defeat the beasts with our bare hands, we can only choose those animals that are lower than our weight. So how much lower do we have to hope to defeat? For ordinary people, the most we can hope to defeat is the beast equivalent to 40% of our body weight. Why didn’t you even have half of it? Is the human body so weak?
Although this result disappoints everyone, it is true. The most we ordinary people can defeat is the beast equivalent to 40% of our own body weight. Here we have seen the most. In actual battles, even if the weight of some animals is one-third or less of ours, we may not be able to defeat them, especially cats.
Felines are believed to be familiar to everyone. Tigers and lions are felines. These animals are very powerful, with sharp teeth, sharp claws, and a very agile body. I believe that many friends like to raise cats and dogs. If you have cats and dogs at home, I believe you have seen cats and dogs fight.
If hunting and dog fighting are in an open place, who do you think will win? I believe that many friends will answer that it is a cat. That’s right, don’t look at the weight of a dog several times larger than a cat, but in a real fight, a dog can’t beat a cat. The weight of cats is usually around 8 kg, and some fat cats may reach 10 kg.
If the cat’s weight is not about 8 kg, but it grows to about 20 kg, do you think humans can beat the cat with bare hands? Estimated to be very difficult. This is several times the weight of a human being, but we can’t beat a cat. Such a similar example has happened in reality. The leopard is also a cat and has a very agile body.
In 1896, when zoologist Karl Ackley was collecting animal specimens in Africa, he was accidentally attacked by a leopard. At the beginning, he injured the leopard with a weapon, and then fought with his bare hands. Although he eventually defeated the leopard by relying on his weight and strength, he was not injured slightly.
According to later records, the leopard weighed about 36 kilograms, while the zoologist’s weight was 80 kilograms. With such a huge difference in weight ratio, and with weapons, it was finally defeated at the cost of injury. Leopard. But if he had no weapons at that time, everyone could imagine what the consequences would be. At that time, it might be the leopard defeating him.
Through the above examples and analysis, you can see that although human beings are the hegemons of the earth and stand at the top of the food chain, we only rely on wisdom to dominate the earth. Without tools and weapons, we can only rely on our hands in nature. Survival will be very difficult. From this we can also see how difficult it was for the ancient ancestors of mankind to survive at that time, no wonder they almost disappeared several times.
Human beings dominate the earth solely by wisdom, which is obviously not in line with the identity of human hegemony. What we want is not only a complete crush in wisdom, but also an absolute advantage in strength. Only in this way can human beings be regarded as the real hegemon on the earth. It is a pity that the natural weak heat of the human body may be impossible to achieve by relying on the natural evolution of nature.
Fortunately, human beings have entered the age of science and technology and have already begun research and exploration of genetic technology. With powerful genetic technology, we can artificially optimize our genes, so that our bodies have powerful strength advantages. I believe that in the near future, humans do not need to bring tools or weapons to go to the field. They can ignore those powerful beasts with bare hands, and can easily fight tigers and lions with their bare hands. We look forward to the arrival of this beautiful tomorrow.
