Were the people in old civilizations like ancient Athens more intelligent than us? If so, what has happened to us? How far will the deterioration go? And how long ago did it start? Our brains are smaller now than the brains of Cro-Magnon people. Were the Cro-Magnons more intelligent than we are?
What will happen in the future? How realistic is the movie ‘Idiocracy’? Will the human species in the future become really stupid, as happened in that movie? How can we turn the tide?
Perhaps you think that we are not becoming less intelligent. Or perhaps you think that we are developing different modes of thought that may be more valuable than the logical thought of the past? Or perhaps you think it might be a good idea to be a bit stupider. We might be happier that way.
