Example text

Those that survive into adulthood despite the onslaught of natural forces such as disease, predators, etc. have, in effect, been subject to selection for survival by these natural forces. These survivors are the only ones that are able to reproduce. Darwin described the survivors as ‘fit’ – the survival of the fittest. If those who are ‘fit’ differ from their peers by having some particular physical characteristic that enables them to survive and then go on to produce offspring, then their offspring may inherit the particular characteristic of their parent(s).

They are thus genetically determined and provide ways of knowing about the world. They are considered to have remained virtually unchanged since they developed in our prehistoric ancestors around 200,000 to 150,000 years ago, when the world was a very different place. These faculties are rooted in the neural circuits of our brains and were sufficient to enable the survival of a nonliterate people living in small groups, using their wits and exploiting their external environment for food and shelter.

In many respects, individuals are more similar than they are different. Starting at the most basic level, all of us are composed of exactly the same chemical materials as each other (and every other creature on planet earth). The mixture of chemicals that makes us human is slightly different from the mixture that makes (say) insects or seaweeds. The similar chemicals give rise to similar chemical processes of life inside our bodies and release energy to digest our food, reproduce the species and so on.
