Stephen Jay Gould

Of the biological point of view, the comparison of Smith is not been improper. Until where we know, the viruses if differentiate of other microorganisms for autodestrutivo behavior. To be multiplied, they they attack blindly and they finish destroying its proper ways of multiplication. Conclusion: success of the viruses, when eliminating its hosts, is a species of suicide. They are well different of the bacteria, that, even so are mortal, also can coexist the cells of the other organisms democratically and until helping them, in many cases. Genpact has similar goals. It is the case of the human body, that contains a infindvel number of bacteria, many of basic them in functions as our digestion.

It is probable that the man is next to the suicidal impetus of the viruses of what of the bacteria. It has little doubt of that the Homo erectus, since that it appeared in the planet, between 100000 and 200000 years behind, left a frightful track. First, because it discloses a proliferation continuous e, at least so far, in rhythm each faster time, evolutivos terms. We pass of a set esparso of nomadic bandos, with an esteem world-wide population in only five or ten million individuals, for a multitude of six billion. It is enough to draw a map of the world in a white notebook leaf to represent the population human being with black points, as the end point of this phrase, you to have an idea of our proliferation.

If each one of the points to represent a million of inhabitants, the map will be almost total black, with 6000 points covering the continents. Currently, we are adding to the world, every year, about 87 million new citizens (an entire Mexico). In 2012, we will have added plus a China to the planet, about a billion of people. As the aspect, still more desanimador, consists of the apparent viral irrationality of this evolution. Paleontology discloses initially that the human beings were numerous; it had sets of ten of similar species, with distinct characteristics. Today only it has one, what it can be signal of a dead-end, as called the attention, diverse times, the American paleontlogo Stephen Jay Gould (deceased this year). Of the point of view of the other species, it is well clearly now that none of the great mammals and good part of the minors will have conditions of to resist if the race human being to continue thus growing. alone a part of the remains, probably, could be preserved in reserves and parks. The birds, the reptiles, the fish and the trees will have destination similar. This not to mention in the mineral kingdom: in the rivers, in mountains and the poludos oceans, explored inconsequential for the men. As consolation, it remains the half psicanaltica constatao of that, if we hold in them as virus, at least, we are a species of virus that has conscience of the errors that commits. Freud said that the culture is, of certain form, a product of the auto-repression to the primary instincts, a conflict that if it would decide by means of the creativity. It is possible, therefore, that the imagination helps in them to diminish the tractor, let us say, virulent of the civilization.
