Is there still a Middle-earth beneath the civilized modern world? Or better yet, do we live in Middle-earth? Science plays a key role in understanding the underpinnings for today’s episode.
An interesting article suggests that Hobbits, a diminutive human-like species, somehow survive in remote captivity on the islands of Indonesia. But take it as a grain of salt. We dive deep concerning the issues of social anthropology and the chances of extinction under evolutive processes.
In this episode, Alex and Jason teach a lesson for humanity. The maintenance of lifespan, just like the survival of Hobbits, signals that small changes in evolution can produce life and death scenarios for the course of natural change. Species go extinct if they don’t adapt to the changes of nature. We need to find the reason that they are not here anymore. Alex also mentions the consequence of a butterfly effect, having small changes can cascade into a ripple of massive, transforming events. A single snap of mistake can turn humanity next in the chopping board of mass extinction. Essentially making Hobbits outlive us.
We need to immortalize life and death because everything that lives will come and go. But the Earth will outlive us all. We come to the conclusion that change is the permanent key to survival. You need to adapt in order to survive in a constantly evolving world. The choice is to adapt or go extinct. The existence of Hobbits is a spark of curiosity that begs people to open up their minds for a greater world around them.
Let us join Alex and Jason as they revisit some discussion on Evolution and Extinction.
Show Notes :
1:00- J.R.R. Tolkien is a historic genius gifted with artistic talent to bring life to the fantasy of Middle-earth.
1:19- Let’s get to know more about the hobbits. These are diminutive species of “human” like races dwelling in Middle-earth.
1:43- Science claims “Hobbits” still harbors somewhere in the Indonesian Archipelago.
2:08- How come in the long stretch of existence of human civilization we still can’t figure out how the world works? How come we cannot answer the questions concerning our own history?
2:12- Are we merely out of touch with reality? Alex and Jason share their mutual disappointment to the logical dissonance of man-made science.
2:52- There is no way to approve or disapprove the existence of Hobbits.
3:13- Is there a hobbit? The anthropological findings suggest hobbits as diminutive dwarfs with unproportional limbs and mental capacity.
3:32- Lack of confidence in knowing something simple means you don’t know anything about it. There is too much scientific inconsistency to consider any legitimacy on evolutionary gaps between Hobbits and Humans.
4:27- Science can be prone to speculation without strong empirical evidence. Alex and Jason on the instances of successful scientific studies across the evolutionary geological timescale.
5:01- You have to realize that the earth is an extension of who you are.
5:21- Change is the permanent key to survival. You need to adapt in an evolving world. Adapt or go extinct.
5:48- We need to find the reason that they are not here anymore. We need to immortalize life and death because everything that lives will come and go. But the Earth will outlive us all.
6:12- The butterfly effect in “chaos”. Small changes can cascade into a ripple of massive, transforming events. A simple misstep in human evolution can wipe out the human race.
7:16- We created our own monstrosities through complacency and arrogant confidence that we know everything and are powerful enough to dictate wisdom into our convenience.
8:10- Jason discusses the nihilism of a nuclear armageddon.
8:45- We don’t hold the future for sure. But we have a choice to make today a better world for tomorrow.
9:20- Focus on the decisions that can help you make your life better.
