What Makes Humans Smart-And so Stupid? The evolution of human intelligence puzzles scientists. We can trace the growth of our brains from the earliest Home Sapiens some 200,000 years ago but no one seems able to explain how we inexplicably had a burst of intelligence roughly 35,000 - 50,000 years ago… The Great Leap Forward began around 35,000 to 50,000 years ago… It was the period when human evolution picked up considerable momentum and our ancestors began to evolve at a much faster pace. Ironically, for the past 10,000 years, our brains have been shrinking by a full 15% today! Susan Jacoby, author of The Age of American Unreason (link is external), says in an article in the Washington Post, "Dumbness, to paraphrase the late senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, has been steadily defined downward for several decades, by a combination of heretofore irresistible forces. These include the triumph of video culture over print culture; a disjunction between Americans' rising level of formal education and their shaky grasp of basic geography, science and history; and the fusion of anti-rationalism with anti-intellectualism." Scriptwriters and TV copywriters are helping in the decline of the English language and furthering the ‘dummying down’ of America. Much of television provides viewers a daily offering of mental mush. People are addicted to shiny objects to the point of distraction…often the nightly news features these folks walking off subway platforms, walking off sidewalks careening into traffic-oblivious to their surroundings making themselves easy targets for muggers and thieves. This mass distraction is uniquely dystopian…every single minute on the planet, YouTube users upload 400 hours of video. Each day, there are literally billions of Facebook “likes.” Schools often no longer teach, but instead entertain. Too often they tell students what to think rather than how to think and frequently overlook the basic three R’s. In fact, I used to conduct workshops on brainstorming and creative thinking techniques for businesses at a major university and throughout the nation and the number one complaint voiced by business owners was their need to offer remedial classes in basic math and reading skills to their employees because schools did not adequately prepare students for the work world. What Others are Saying... “Bruce David approaches the human evolution regarding topics like the ignorance and stupidity from a philosophical point of view, showing how people lives can be affected by them and guide his readers based on pieces of advice and inspiring quotes from successful people to the right sources of information, in order to (re) increase their intelligence and improve their lives. I appreciated that the author’s manner of writing is straight to the point and the fact that even if every chapter was referenced, there are a lot of other inspiring sources for the readers who would like to go deeper on this subject, from another point (s) of view. As I had a positive and inspiring experience reading, I would recommend it to the people who would like to enrich their general knowledge!” Cristina, Chzeck Republic "I like that you included all those helpful resource links....
