Freedom – Emancipation from Matter

Friday, January 30th, 2009

Both human development and the evolution of life share another significant trend – a journey towards greater freedom from physical constraints.

Some early evolutionary examples of increasing degrees of freedom are the processes by which living systems obtained energy. Evolutionary biologists believe that early living cells used simple fermentation. These bacteria broke sugar molecules down into smaller molecules such as carbon dioxide and water, taking for their own use the energy which bound these molecules together.

Change is occurring faster and faster. It no longer took many generations for one genetic difference to arise. Differences now occurred in every generation, speeding evolution a thousandfold.

In the future, we might expect the same amount of change we’ve seen in the last 20 years to take place in years rather than decades.
