While other species adapt to their environment, human beings have the extraordinary ability to drastically alter their environment for survival. This has been great for our population but our bodies haven’t adapted fast enough.
Over time, every physical pleasure has been abused and separated from its original purpose. Procreation by birth control and porn, nutrition by highly processed food, creativity by low dose dopamine highs, hard labor by modern comforts.
This is creating silent chaos for our species – high infertility rates, rampant obesity, mental health issues, decreased quality of life for the elderly.
Short of a cataclysmic event, there is no going back. Technology will eventually compensate for our lack of adaptation. Until then, to take advantage of technologies in 2020 AD we must treat our bodies like it’s 20,000 BC.
