    If the ultra-Elite achieve quasi-immortality as in “Zardoz” and “Mr. Nobody.” they would lose interest in sex. Or sex and reproduction would be separated from randomness, as in BRAVE NEW WORLD." Or everything goes wrong, as with the Eloi and Morlocks..My theory is: The Elite don’t want to work with their hands, so they either build robots or encourage a despised lower class to do the scut work. They provide the upper lower classes with cheap comforts and neat toys. The Elite encourage simplistic thinking in the lower masses that can be manipulated to keep themselves in power. .I wonder when this will happen?

    Lots of animals breed much faster than humans, but we overpower them anyway. Don’t sweat it.

    Did you read EVOLUTION, by Stephen Baxter? If I remember correctly, he portrays life on Earth 500 million years past the decline of Homo sapiens (not too far into our future).

    Stupidity is a self-limiting problem for which natural selection already provides an answer.How I lived this long, I will never know.

    Intelligence is a recessive gene (which means the world is indeed getting dumber- even with the population increasing).
