    survival of the brainless
    Project: What happened to nature?
    (Homo superstes, prae-construction)

    "Homo sapiens" (the "wise man" or "knowing man") seems to follow the destiny of mold, yeast or lemmings. Population growth is strictly exponential since WW2, and therefore, no real difference of sapiens vs. non-sapiens. Did you ever see your aquarium overgrow with algae? Did you leave toast bread in its plastic bag unattended? Look at humans in that sense... There is always an abrupt end to all this.

    Why on earth have we got brains? To pass school exams? To earn money? To start a family? Or, to control our species' long-term future?

    Biological population control is considered un-ethical. Medicine and pharmaceutical companies have changed the world of H.sapiens. They pay salaries, they make profits. For years! Ethics is a good propellant... However, they will not be able to avoid the unavoidable.

    I would, therefore call everybody to think about this. How to combine ethics and short-term thinking with giving a real chance to Homo sapiens. We have 200,000 years behind us, I wish to have a future... I wish a survival time for Homo sapiens of another 800,000 years... Cheers!
