Evolving Primates

Ever been in a social context, and just looked around and thought of everybody as primates? (Kind of like we’re one small stage for the evolution of humans)

I mean we have our physical features that resemble monkeys, and then we act like animals. There are so many people that behave on instinct. Some examples are we have men trying to be the alpha males, and both sexes trying hard to attract the opposite sex to mate. Straight up animal kingdom.

It just baffles me sometimes that we’re experiencing one TINY fraction of history. Kind of like how there were tons of cavemen and monkey generations before us, and how there will most likely be many more evolved generations after us. We probably look so primitive.

It’s true. We’re still evolving though, so why not go out and do something to affect that?

Yes, I found myself doing this for a while. The thought intrigued me so much that I began to approach more and more situations like this. At first it was unsettling, then I started finding it funny, for one reason or another. I found myself scanning the environment, forming a smile and laughing to myself about it. Maybe a weird thing to do but then again we’re all a little weird. so I guess weird is the norm.

@fadingfootprints, It is unsettling, i’m still at that part of it. But I find myself giggling too sometimes. Just cause we think we’re so advanced because of our iphones (which I do not have). But I one time was observing how me and my group of small friends attracted like another group of small friends one time and they just started mingling and talking and I just couldn’t stop thinking about the Sims game, and how everyone was just blowing hot air out their asses hahahaah

Haha, it’s funny how some people don’t believe in evolution, what are they blind? Laughing always sounds so monkey to me.

Oooh yea, i do this all the time. I work in a supermarket so I see all kinds of people coming through, I just love looking at their behavior, how they react to (or ignore) other people how they get sucked into specials and so on.
@trek79, Laughter and screaming are monkey as! So are quite a few things that we do, it’s kinda cute. People forget that we are animals, that there is no such thing as “just animals”.
