    yes, but the variables of what is fittest are changing considerably....like middle, upper-middle class advantaged educated young women with means are choosing not to reproduce. maybe they've moved the goal........

    maybe psychology needs to be reviewed and revised to keep up with these rapidly changing times, and given a complete make-over.

    my former doc said "the goal of the brain is to reproduce." i responded, "the goal of the brain is to make more brains?"

    the brain is going to change rapidly, along with the way we use language, and consequently how we think, hence our wiring and pathways, and this will change the structure of the brain itself, in conjunction with this technological computer revolution.

    it will evolve in the same way species have always evolved, like those little land critters who liked climbing trees and jumping off the first branches, to the ground, possibly even as a way to lay in wait for food, and also because it was fun, and those
    who more adept at doing it, and got better and better, also slowly morphed into what we know today as the creatures we call birds with wings and feathers, most having the capacity for flight.

    i believe it's two opposing forces working in conjunction with each other, both coming from within, and without. a mutual desire. sort of like the slow evolving reunion of broken parts....
