Civilisation 2.0

Now that we've become so smart with our opposable thumbs and our web 2.0, we're probably going to halt evolution in its tracks with unnecessary surgery and/or ostracism of the higher evolved, leading to either suicide, genocide, alcoholism or X-Men style drama.

Then we will regress to the caveman stage in which we don't know how to maaro-pair-pe-kulhaadi anymore.

Then we will evolve back to this stage and repeat the process all over again. 

Rubber-band evolution. Bouncing back and forth, back and forth.

Or maybe the next time around, the cavemen will sprout wings and have green skin so we can photosynthesize. In mid air. So cool.

Now this all makes sense.

Nice blog work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.

Dint like the image depicting a modern day devi. We Hindus should stop denigrating ourselves lest Hussains get emboldened.

reading this reminded of the following lines form adjustment bureau

[after being locked up in am empty studio]
Thompson: Frustrating, isn't it? My name is Thompson.
David Norris: Whatever happened to free will?
Thompson: We actually tried free will before. After taking you from hunting and gathering to the height of the Roman empire, we stepped back to see how you'd do on your own. You gave us the dark ages for five centuries until finally we decided we should come back in. The Chairman thought that maybe we just needed to do a better job with teaching you how to ride a bike before taking the training wheels off again. So we gave you raised hopes, enlightment, scientific revolution. For six hundred years we taught you to control your impulses with reason. Then in nineteen ten, we stepped back. Within fifty years you'd brought us world war one, the depression, fascism, the holocaust and capped it off by bringing the entire planet to the brink of destruction in the Cuba missile crisis. At that point the decision was taken to step back in again before you did something that even we couldn't fix.

Definitely an interesting take on evolution. Never thought it could be so weird and...unbelievable.
