I am reading a fantastic book called “Sapiens” by Yuval Noah Harari. It is a brief history of humankind.
Here is some of the things from the book I will share with you.
Gave us power
Made us hungry for more
Gave us purpose
Made us deadly
We wiped out the Neanderthals.
They were too familiar to ignore, but too different to tolerate.
Sapiens had the unprecedented ability to cooperate flexibly in large numbers. Ants and bees can also work together in huge numbers, but they do so in a very rigid manner and only with close relatives. Wolves and chimpanzees cooperate far more flexible than ants and bees, but they can do so only with small numbers of other individuals that they know intimately. Sapiens can cooperate in extremely flexible ways with countless numbers of strangers.
That´s why the sapiens rule the world, whereas ants eat our leftovers and chimps are locked up in zoos and research laboratories……
