Evidence that animals cannot evolve
to become humans

 

HUMANS

 

A human has accurate mental models of:
†††††
o††† self
†††††
o††† environment
†††††
o††† relationships between self and environment
†††††
o††† relationships between self and others
†††††
o††† relationships between others and environment
†††††
o††† relationships between others and others.

In a human: all these mental models are linked together
to form one, big, unbroken, organically structured,
mental model of everything, with few fractures.


ĎOrganicí, here, meaning:like a spiderís web
with the most important bits in the middle.


Itís the most efficient arrangement.
Hence it evolved into being
in us, and in God (God built himself, evolved).

 

1)††††††† Your mental model-of-everything:
†††††††††††††††††††††† is organically structured
†††††††††††††††††††††† with few fractures,
††††††††††† both of which make your mind more efficient.

2a)††††† The fabric of your mental model-of-everything
††††††††††† is made of:

†††††††††††††††††††††† Memories:
†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† of sights & sounds (e.g. words)
†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† smells, tastes, & touches,
†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† of this temporary universe
†††††††††††††††††††††† that youíve taken in,

2b)††††† The framework of your mental model-of-everything
††††††††††† is made of:

††††††††††††††††††††††
Phrases & concepts, also made of words,
††††††††††††††††††††††
that youíve built inside yourself.

†††††††††††††††††††††† That the mindís framework is made of words
†††††††††††††††††††††† makes your mind even more efficient.

 

.

 

To conclude:

††††††††††† 1) and 2b)
††††††††††† increase the efficiency of
††††††††††† our mental model-of-everything.

††††††††††† This increased efficiency
††††††††††† of our mental model-of-everything
††††††††††† then causes
††††††††††† our high applied-intelligence.

ANIMALS

 

Animals, unlike humans,
do not each have:
††††††††††† one, big,
††††††††††† mental model,
of everything they know.

Instead animals have:
††††††††††† many, small, disconnected,
††††††††††† mental models,
of everything they know.

 

This is because an animalís behaviour
is based on only pain & pleasure:

For example:

††††††††††† At a water hole
††††††††††† an animal sees a dead member
††††††††††† of its own species.

††††††††††† It starts to learn the scene.

 

††††††††††† But, the more it realises
††††††††††† that death & decay are its own destiny also,
††††††††††† the more frightening, mentally painful,
††††††††††† the scene becomes.

††††††††††† As it operates on only pain & pleasure
††††††††††† it stops learning the scene.

 

††††††††††† After a drink, it wanders over the hill to a lake
††††††††††† with logs floating in it.

††††††††††† This new scene is ripe for inventing the dug-out canoe.
††††††††††† But this new scene must first be learnt.

††††††††††† The animal is hesitant:
†††††††††††††††† It knows it once found a scene
†††††††††††††††† that was so frightening, so painful,
†††††††††††††††† that it had to stop learning it.

†††††††††††††††† Is this another one of those scenes?

 

††††††††††† The trouble is Ė it doesnít know much about
††††††††††† the first frightening scene
††††††††††† because it was too painful to learn it properly.

††††††††††† So it doesnít know whether this new scene
††††††††††† is another frightening scene or not.

††††††††††† But it does know it was able to learn a little
††††††††††† about the first frightening scene
††††††††††† before it got too frightening.

 

††††††††††† So, even if this new scene is another frightening one,
††††††††††† itís safe to learn a little about it.

††††††††††† But only a little.

 

††††††††††† So, the animal learns only a little
††††††††††† about the potential dug-out canoe scene.

††††††††††† Indeed, it learns only a little about all scenes.

††††††††††† But, unfortunately, it needs to learn about a scene fully
††††††††††† in order to visualise inventions,
††††††††††† visualise the changes that need to be made to the scene.

 

.

 

††††††††††† Even if an animal does not, itself, experience this,
††††††††††† it will have inherited this reaction/response
††††††††††† from those that have experienced it.

.

 

A TECHNICAL VERSION OF THE ABOVE

 

An animalís behaviour, and therefore also thinking,
is based on only pain & pleasure.

††††††††††† So it finds mental models of its own temporary nature
††††††††††† disturbing, painful.

††††††††††† So it becomes less observant at death situations.

 

††††††††††† So it records only poor mental models
††††††††††† of death situations.

††††††††††† So it possesses only poor mental models
††††††††††† of death situations.

 

††††††††††† So it cannot tell
††††††††††† which situations are death situations
††††††††††† and which are not.

††††††††††† So it cannot tell
††††††††††† which situations to become less observant at
††††††††††† and which not.

 

††††††††††† So it becomes less observant
††††††††††† at all situations.

††††††††††† So it records only poor mental models
††††† ††††† of all situations.

††††††††††† So it possesses only poor mental models
††††††††††† of all situations.

 

††††††††††† So, it possesses only:
†††††††††††††††† many, small, disconnected, mental models
†††††††††††††††† of all the situations itís experienced.

††††††††††† Does not possess:
†††††††††††
††††† ††††† one, big, organically structured,
††††††††††† ††††† ††††† mental model-of-everything,
†††††††††††††††††††††† with no breaks/fissures
††††††††††† ††††† ††††† & with its framework made of words
††††††††††† as we humans do.
