 About the Book 

Evolution aint what it used to be Via the process of redefining reality, humans have succeeded in transforming evolution from a Darwinian biological process to a Lamarckian intellectual exercise. Further, as a result of this change, humans have profoundly redefined their relationship to nature. Whereas the fate of most species is determined by environmental constraints, humans have transformed their former master, Mother Nature, into their servant. Rather than submissively living within the limits of natures bounty, super-adaptive humans have learned to tweak the biosphere in order to demand whatever they please from it. Of course, this transformation has not been without its problems. Day by day, humans escalate the stresses that they impose on the biosphere. Consequently, if humans remain hopeful of creating a better, brighter future, then they will have to push their Lamarckian survival talents to altogether new heights. To quote Einstein, The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. Now, more than ever, human survival will depend upon Homo sapiens unique ability to elevate its thinking by redefining reality.
