Sapiens 1

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.

Fire

Gave us power

Farming

Made us hungry for more

Money

Gave us purpose

Science

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……

Love, Health and Diversity
