Optimists will be glad to note that things have never been better. Pessimists can take heart however, for conversely things will not get any better. We’re talking human evolution here. We are as good as it gets. London, 2008, this is it chaps. According to Professor Jones of UCL, as the human race becomes homogenised, our chances to evolve any further decrease. For it is variety and dissimilarity which generate the possibility for change and mutation. And we have cheated natural selection of its pickings, as life expectancy rates are higher then ever. So enjoy. The professor doesn’t intimate as much, but if we are about to peak, devolution can’t be far behind. Og.
