Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.
I am. I’m gonna go ahead and say that.
It’s kind of a cheesy Jewel quote, but I love it: “What we call human nature in actuality is human habit.”
I’ve seen this post bouncing around on my dash for a while and it occurs to me that people view the human race as somehow static. I think that if you look at the way people thought/behaved in the past, even the recent past, you will find signs that we are changing all the time. Just as the environment challenged the baboons, so too does our rapidly changing environment challenge us. And we are changing/adapting to it.
You might not like what this is doing to us, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening!
