Are we evolving into a NEW type of human?

Are we evolving into a NEW type of humanBy 2050, a completely new type of human will evolve as a result of radical new technology, behavior, and natural selection.

This is according to Cadell Last, a researcher at the Global Brain Institute, who claims mankind is undergoing a major ‘evolutionary transition’.

In less than four decades, Mr Last claims we will live longer, have children in old age and rely on artificial intelligence to do mundane tasks.

This shift is so significant, he claims, it is comparable to the change from monkeys to apes, and apes to humans.

‘Your 80 or 100 is going to be so radically different than your grandparents,’ Mr Last says, who believe we will spend much of our time living in virtual reality.

Some evolutionary scientists believe this age could be as high as 120 by 2050.

Mr Last claims humans will also demonstrate delayed sexual maturation, according to a report by Christina Sterbenz in Business Insider.

This refers to something known as life history theory which attempts to explain how natural selection shape key events in a creature’s life, such as reproduction.

Mr Last predicts that by 2050, humans will live significantly longer, robots will replace unskilled jobs, women will have children older and people will have more time to engage in cultural activities

It suggests that as brain sizes increase, organisms need more energy and time to reach their full potential, and so reproduce less. Instead of living fast and dying young, Mr Last believes humans will live slow and die old.

‘Global society at the moment is a complete mess,’

‘But in crisis there is opportunity, and in apocalypse there can be metamorphosis.

‘So I think the next system humanity creates will be far more sophisticated, fair, and abundant than our current civilization.

‘I think our next system will be as different from the modern world, as our contemporary world is from the medieval world.’

‘The biological clock isn’t going to be around forever,’ he added, and said that people could pause it for some time using future technology.

And as well as having more child-free years to enjoy leisure time, Mr Last believes artificial intelligence will offset the need for low-skill jobs. His views wrote a paper, titled ‘Human Evolution, Life History Theory, and the End of Biological Reproduction’ published Current Aging Science

The change is already happening. Today, the average age at which a woman in Britain has her first baby has been rising steadily stands at 29.8.

In the US, just one per cent of first children were born to women over the age of 35 in 1970. By 2012, that figure rose to 15 per cent.

‘As countries become socioeconomically advanced, more and more people, especially women, have the option to engage in cultural reproduction,’ Mr Last added.

And as well as having more child-free years to enjoy leisure time, he believes artificial intelligence will offset the need for low-skill jobs. We may also spend a large amount of time living in virtual reality.

‘I’m not quite sure most people have really internalized the implications of this possibility,’ Mr Last said.

His views are detailed in a paper, titled ‘Human Evolution, Life History Theory, and the End of Biological Reproduction‘ published Current Aging Science.

HUMANS WILL COMPETE WITH DROIDS FOR JOBS BY 2014, STUDY CLAIMS

By 2040, cabs will be driven by Google robots, shops will become showrooms for online outlets and call centers will be staffed by intelligent droids.

That’s the scenario depicted in recent research which suggests robots could be taking over our lives and jobs in less than 30 years.

The competition for work caused by a rise in the robots population will see us heading to surgeons for ‘additional processing power for our brains’, they claim.

We may also be requesting bionic implants for our hands that will make us able to perform tasks as fast as any machine.

Futurologists, commissioned by global job search website xpatjobs.com, say workers will have less job security and will work more unsociable hours.

Those who take these risks and innovate with their own bodies will be the biggest earners in 2040, they claim.

However, the study added that workers may be left with poor eyesight, smaller sexual organs, and constantly-furrowed brows as they struggle to keep up to life in the 21st century.

The study predicts that by 2050 a typical male worker, aged 35, will have red eyes, a smaller penis, a larger brain, advanced language skills and bioimplants to improve their performance
