If Media Survives Humanity Thrives

We humans are born the most incapable of all mammals. We can’t walk, or even open our eyes. But how did we end up building this giant global civilization? Media is one of the crucial ingredients that make it happen.

We are born highly inadequate because we are born relatively early due to the size of our brains. If we waited a bit more, our heads would be too big to get through the uterus. This ends up causing two things: we are underdeveloped and our brains are still very plastic after birth. This ends up being a great combination. Our lack of capabilities at birth makes us very dependent which pushes us toward improving socially and that is only possible with the plasticity of our brains.
