Anyone who says the male peacock's feathers and a Ferrari are "exactly the same" have never experienced the handling of peacock feathers. It sucks. No fun at all. And it`s zero to sixty is horrible.

Our instincts for survival of the species are no longer just barely satisfied like in most other animals, but are met and even highly exceeded, its caused us a lot of problems as a species, and for the planet itself. Oh, and ofc problems for a lot of the other species too, since so many of them are dying out nowdays.
We overindulge in those instincts, and our species/planet is going to die eventually, due to that, if it doesnt change.
We cant really stop overindulging in them either, since by definition, as instincts, they are hardwired into the species.
So the question is, are we going to overcome them, are they going to be replaced by new instincts, or are they going to be the end of humanity?

There is no question that mankind is still driven by basic natural instincts for survival of the species, just like other species are.
We like the taste of fatty foods or sugar, because they are both high in calories, and our body needs calories to survive. Like every animal, our instinct tells us to stock up on calories, and make sure we dont die of hunger.


But the real question here is:
Is mankind as a species going to be able to evolve past its instincts, or are they going to destroy us?

Since the industrial revolution, we have been able to produce much more than is normally available in nature. It seems our instincts are still adapted to someone living in the forest, instead of someone living in "civilization". And now they are driving us to our doom.
Wars are paid for by diamonds for example, which is pretty much the equivalent to a a rooster's tail Doesnt that just seem crazy if you think about it?

I wish I could say something intellectual and witty to continue the premise of this video, but I can't.

Today`s word of the day was Jew. I haven`t used it yet. So there I go.
