Humans as a dead branch: Part I

Humans were lucky to be the first species to evolve to a point from where they could easily wipe out the remainder of planet’s fauna, including their own kind. In the life long battle of species , raging on our planet since primitive bacteria. Animals who are unfortunate enough to share turf with us on dry land have nothing but nails and teeth to fend off full metal jackets, arrows, pikes, forks, traps, nuclear winter and, of course, steel cages.

This one slipped through into my top 100 greatest inventions

Our own human teeth and nails gradually became obsolete. We can manufacture tools as a substitute. The incredible reality is that we still have them as if nature predicted our technology will eventually abandon us and we have to survive as did our earliest ancestors. Next time you catch yourself biting your finger nails, think about the loop your brain created to cover up for one subtle ancient instinct.

Humans pushed up to food chain ladder and now they sport only temporary lead. So what to do when every other life form being the mad king of every life forms fate? Chronologically arranged: killing for food, for fun, or for no reason at all. Noticeably, there is little to no option there that involves no killing.  From the viewpoint of a conqueror, raw power is due for display. We are not advertising our brain capacity but the fact we could wipe out things into oblivion.

Animals are stupid, otherwise they would have hated us for being so much smarter than them and time-fold more brutal at the same time. We are a fine example that intelligence and complexity of brain size and capacity increases proportionally with violence. If animals traded places with us, they’d realize killing weaker species has nothing to do with being the smartest chap on the planet. What fucked up chip we had lodged in our brains and by whom?

Ah, powers of our minds, why no understand? With our current mental load as species, we could have already made an evolutionary leap. Easily saving ourselves thousands of years of painful ‘natural’ evolution. We did it before – steam, electricity, quantum power, cages.. Currently, we only just touched the phase where technology produces undeniable idiots.

One the flip side, even dead branches are not completely useless. We could be used for something, like food for the greater species who fucked monkeys to create us, and who will vist is eventually again. Like a farmer who checks on its crops. Until that happens, we remain purposeless. Just lying around in the back yard of the Universe… covered with moss and red ants.

Killing all life and plant forms as we carve our path in history of the universe. Deserve to be dead branch, toss that in the fire and listen to the sweet cracking sound.
