>>16942819 Defining evolution as genetic change over time (that is, how science does) then yes. If there should be a near-extinction event, the genetic bottleneck could very well wipe out what we now consider mentally normal. Likewise, if there should be a strong selection against individuals who are mentally healthy (for whatever reason, natural or artificial) then it would be bred out.
>>16942870 There are more living humans now than there have been at any previous time in history. Our farming technology is barely adequate to provide enough food. We're reliant on fossil fuels, which have a limited supply. The only way there's enough to go around is by using up natural resources faster than they can replace themselves. Aquifers are being emptied, rainforests are being cleared, the oceans are overfished. We're hitting the wall. And the population is projected to pass ten billion in our lifetime.
If something considered a mental illness today ends up making a person more likely to reproduce, yes. Though we will start manipulating our own evolution well before natural evolution does much more to us.
The entire modern world has a stable if not declining birth rate, and even shitholes like Africa are predicted to start declining. Though knowing current politics they'll probably start donating all our food and sustaining their birth rate until we're all fucked.
Every biological feature of humanity that is rooted in genetics is part of "human evolution." You are a retard who doesn't have a basic grasp of biological evolution and think it's synonymous with a "ladder of progress."
>>16944104 >Aquifers are being emptied, rainforests are being cleared, the oceans are overfished. And guess who's consuming most of those resources? It's the procentually small America and Europa. >And the population is projected to pass ten billion in our lifetime. Actually 9 billion, but thanks for the scare-mongering.
>>16942819 I have read that sociopaths and psychopaths used to be adaptive and these personality types persisted to the modern day. Now these types hide in pain sight, but the type can backfire easily. some are Ted Bundy others are cutthroat business executives.
>>16944104 >Our farming technology is barely adequate to provide enough food. They pay farmers not to grow food, and buy food just to destroy it, in order to regulate prices. If there was money to be made feeding poor people they'd do it, but there isn't so no one does.
>We're reliant on fossil fuels, For like 30 years now the public has been begging for something else. Take it up with the corporate overlords who don't consider newer technology because the profit margins are too small.
>>16947679 There is a wisdom but it's shortsighted.
A good example is the story of someone asking a crab fisherman why his bucket is so small, and he explains that when one crab starts to climb out the others pull him back in. The only way psychopaths can succeed is with people who trust them. They themselves can't truly trust or help anyone and a group of them left alone will invariably destroy eachother. They hate everyone who has empathy or kindness and even plot killing them in extreme cases, but they need them. So many internal inconsistencies going on i have a hard time believing it's a logical adaptation and lean more towards mental illness.
>>16942819 they are usually just spiritually based afflictions and it's fucked up because the institutions in place to "deal" with the mentally ill usually just hinder them or give them chemical lobotomies and experimental drugs the sort of stuff the Nazis would experiment on people with
>>16947973 ahh...you may want to rethink what you just said, schizophrenia completely alters how you process information and how to perceive your surroundings, the disorder itself alters how your brain works in many ways including information.
>>16948850 No, it alters your perception of your perception. Literally does not change anything else. It's a form of recursive retardation, looking for the origin of all the things you come across rather than contextualizing everything as a fleeting moment in time. Pro tip: Wordplay isn't consciousness.
