Humans to "split in two"; very interesting

Evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry of the London School of Economics has some astonishing thoughts regarding the future, that is the evolutionary future, of mankind.

Nobody can say for certain that he is right or wrong, but I must say that I can definitely see reason behind his thinking. From an evolutionary point of view things can change very randomly, but if our self created environments stay as they are now I can easily see his predictions coming true. Some of what he is saying is already happening. Race being ‘ironed out’ for instance.

If I had to give my two cents, I think there is one reason why his prediction might not come true. I don’t think man will carry on as we are. I believe the human population is out-of-control and inevitably we are going to start wiping each other out. Be that through more (but truly global) wars, global famine or disease I couldn’t say.

Elke Heunis is one week old!

Elke HeunisElke was a week old yesterday. It is unreal how time has flown since she was born on the 27th of September. Her birth was an emotional roller coaster to say the least. I tend to get very focussed and quite grim during times of stress, so it was only a day or so afterwards that I could think about the “miracle” of life. But it still doesn’t feel like Elke is our own!

As promised, her are some photos (better than the ones that sent from the hospital).

Lene was an absolute star. I have to doff my cap to her for her courage and bravery.

Sofar Elke is perfectly healthy, but man alive she can scream!! Lene is doing sterling work with her, but it is tiring for her. Elke’s worst times of the day is between 12 and 5 in the morning.

Lene is also recovering well from the birth.

Thanks to everyone for all the support and messages.
