How will we humans evolve in a new and future age of technology?
We live in an age of great technological advances. In the future, historians may argue that the 19th and 20th centuries were the days of technology and science. So here's the question. As we flow into a 'brave new world' of science how will we evolve a a human race? Our current evolutionary state is that of hunting & gathering, territorialness & fighting, tools & weapons. Come to think of it, not much has changed. So how will we evolve with the current flow of things? will we progressively have longer fingures to type on computers? or eyes than can adapt to the brightness of a computer screen? Any thoughts.
