    Post Coffee-Coloured Race to Take Over the Planet

    Coffee-coloured race to take over planet

    Rashmee Roshan Lall, Times of India, 17 Oct, 2006

    LONDON: Racial profiling will be a thing of the past – not soon, but only in the year 3000 – when a coffee-coloured population, split into two sub-species, 'gracile' and 'robust', inhabits the planet, according to the newest thinking from evolutionary biologist brain-boxes here.

    The latest view of tomorrow's human condition is put out by Dr Oliver Curry, a theorist at the aptly-named Darwinian centre of the London School of Economics.
    Unsurprisingly, in a world run by just seven basic storylines - rags to riches,
    the quest, voyage and return, tragedy, comedy and re-birth - Curry's new theory sounds alarmingly like the vision sketched out by H.G.Wells in his 1895 novel, The Time Machine.

    Curry said on Tuesday that he felt reasonably sure human evolution would result in humanity splitting into two sub-species in 100,000 years. These would include a genetic upper class, tall, slim and quick-witted humans, he said. The other would be a squat, dim-witted underclass. The two classes would be distinct by their physical attributes with the 'gracile' humans characteristically tall, slim, healthy, attractive, intelligent, and creative. They would be a far cry from the "underclass" , who would be dim-witted and goblin-like.

    But Curry's most interesting projection, which may interest the darker-skinned swathes of the world's population, is that the human race will evolve away from racial difference. Everyone, will be coffee-coloured and the potential brown master race will be akin to Saira Mohan, observers told TOI.

    Mohan, the 28-year-old luminous beauty who is of Indian, Canadian, French and Irish descent, appeared on the cover of Newsweek magazine almost exactly three years ago, with the lead headline "The Perfect Face."



    At the time, Mohan's so-called "cultural and ethnic ambiguity", born of her
    Punjabi father and French-Irish mother, was thought to symbolise the magazine's quest to understand its extraordinarily far-sighted tagline, "How a global standard of beauty is emerging and what people are doing to get it".

    Now, Curry appears to suggest that the Mohan model may actually be the prototype for the masterclass within our genetic descendants.

    The newest theory has not been swallowed whole, with at least some biologists saying it might be "a tall story" because of its bizarre predictions on the age span (120 years) and predicted height (6 ft 6 inches on average).

    Curry predictions include the view that humans will evolve in 1,000 years into
    giants between 6ft and 7ft tall. Tomorrow's men, he predicted, will have
    symmetrical facial features, look athletic, and have squarer jaws, deeper voices and bigger male organs. The women will have lighter, smooth, hairless skin, large clear eyes, pert breasts, glossy hair, and even features. The uniform coffee-coloured race will inter-breed, he said, to the point when sexual selection causes humanity to divide into sub-species.

    A bit more on this:

    The future ascent (and descent) of man
    The Times, Sec. Home news, p 28 (17-10-2006) By Mark Henderson

    Within 100,000 years the divide between rich and poor could lead to two
    human sub-species, writes Mark Henderson

    Humanity could evolve into two sub-species within 100,000 years as
    social divisions produce a genetic underclass, a scientist said
    yesterday.

    The mating preferences of the rich, highly educated and well-nourished
    could ultimately drive their separation into a genetically distinct
    group that no longer interbreeds with less fortunate human beings,
    according to Oliver Curry.

    Dr Curry, a research associate in the Centre for Philosophy of Natural
    and Social Science of the London School of Economics, speculated that
    privileged humans might over tens of thousands of years evolve into a
    "gracile" subspecies, tall, thin, symmetrical, intelligent and creative.
    The rest would be shorter and stockier, with asymmetric features and
    lower intelligence, he said.

    Dr Curry's vision echoes that of H. G. Wells in The Time Machine. He
    envisaged a race of frail, privileged beings, the Eloi, living in a
    ruined city and coexisting uneasily with ape-like Morlocks who toil
    underground and are descended from the downtrodden workers of today.

    Dr Curry also said that today's concept of race would be gone by the
    year 3000, relationships between people with different skin colours
    producing a "coffee-colour" across all populations. With improvements in
    nutrition and medicine, people would routinely grow to 6ft 6in and live
    to the age of 120, he said. Genetic modification, cosmetic surgery and
    sexual selection -whereby mate preferences drive evolution -meant that
    people would tend to be better-looking than today.

    Otherwise, humans will look much as they do now, with one exception: Dr
    Curry also suggested that increased reliance on processed food would
    make chewing less important, possibly resulting in less developed jaws
    and shorter chins. Ten thousand years from today this effect could be
    compounded as human faces grow more juvenile in appearance. This effect
    -neotony -is known from domestic animals: dogs resemble young versions
    of wild relatives such as wolves.

    Dr Curry raised the worrying possibility that reliance on technology
    could erode social skills and even health. As deaths from genetic
    diseases such as cancer are prevented, the genes themselves might become
    more common, no longer being "weeded out" of the gene pool. Increased
    use of medicine as a means of treating disease could lead to the
    deterioration of the body's immune system.

    Dr Curry's predictions were commissioned by the television channel Bravo
    to celebrate its 21st anniversary on air.

    "The Bravo Evolution Report suggests that the future of man will be a
    story of the good, the bad and the ugly," he said. "While science and
    technology have the potential to create an ideal habitat for humanity
    over the next millennium, there is the possibility of a genetic hangover
    due to an over-reliance on technology reducing our natural capacity to
    resist disease or get along with each other.

    "After that, things could get ugly, with the possible emergence of
    genetic 'haves' and 'have-nots'."

    ======================================== ================================
    ==========

    This is the shape of things to come for mankind Daily Telegraph (UK),
    Sec. News, p 009 (17-10-2006) By By Nic Fleming Science Correspondent

    HUMANS will grow to an average of 6ft 6in, live to the age of 120 and
    all have brown skin by the year 3,000, an evolutionary expert suggested
    yesterday.

    Dr Oliver Curry, of the Darwin@LSE research centre at the London School
    of Economics, said our species will evolve to be taller and live longer,
    and that racial differences will become less and less pronounced, thanks
    to trends in nutrition, medicine and migration.

    Further into the future, Dr Curry predicted, humans will decline
    physically and lose key social and interactive skills thanks to an
    over-dependence on technology and medical interventions.

    By the year 102,000, mankind will have split into two distinct
    sub-species - the "genetic haves'' and the "genetic have-nots''.

    The analysis of technological, biological and environmental trends
    suggests HG Wells may not have been too far off the mark in his novel
    The Time Machine in which mankind splits into a frail, wealthy genetic
    upper class and a downtrodden, ape-like worker class.

    Dr Curry, who was commissioned to carry out the study of how man would
    evolve over the next 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000 years by the TV channel
    Bravo, said: "The future of man will be a story of the good, the bad and
    the ugly.

    "While science and technology have the potential to create an ideal
    habitat for humanity over the next millennium, there is a possibility of
    a monumental genetic hangover over the subsequent millennia due to an
    over-reliance on technology - reducing our natural capacity to resist
    disease and our ability to get along with each other.

    "After that, things could get ugly, with the possible emergence of
    genetic 'haves' and 'have-nots'.''

    Dr Curry believes humans will reach physical peak around the year 3,000,
    with improved nutrition and understanding of the human body. Men will
    reach average heights of between 6ft and 7ft. Physical features will
    evolve to emphasise features valued in the opposite sex by men and women
    looking for potential mates.

    Men will therefore have more symmetrical facial features, squarer jaws,
    and deeper voices. Women will have lighter skin, large clear eyes,
    firmer breasts, glossy hair, more symmetrical features and smooth,
    hairless skin. Variations in skin colouring are expected to be smoothed
    out, with most humans moving towards a brown tone.

    Further into the future the outlook is less rosy, Dr Curry argued, with
    humans declining physically thanks to excessive reliance on technology
    and medical interventions.

    By around the year 12,000, he believes communication skills and
    emotional abilities such as love, sympathy, trust and respect will have
    diminished, eroding the abilities of humans to perform in teams. The
    increased eating of processed foods will mean humans do less chewing,
    leading to less developed jaws.

    Immune systems will deteriorate due to hygiene and reliance on
    medicines.

    Infants will be larger at birth, forcing mothers be rely on caesarian
    sections. Humans will be able to replace faulty stretches of DNA thanks
    to advances in genetic engineering - potentially leading to more genetic
    uniformity and vulnerability to disease.

    Dr Curry predicts that 100,000 years from now mankind will be divided
    into two distinct sub-species with a genetic elite moving in ever more
    exclusive circles. The genetic upper class will be increasingly tall,
    thin, clean, healthy and creative, while the genetic underclass will be
    short, stocky, asymmetrical, grubby, unhealthy and less intelligent.

    Re: Coffee-coloured race to take over planet (Times of India)

    The idea of a coffee coloured race taking over the planet is totally ridiculous.

    How could a coffee coloured race create an imperium?

    Not every race, existing separately is even capable of creating an fully integrated imperium anyway, and even when they do - the imperium is likely to fall apart.

    Miss Spain looks much more Asiatic than the half-Indian girl, she looks almost Mongoloid, very strange looking.

    Re: Coffee-coloured race to take over planet (Times of India)

    How can we become "coffe colored" when one third of the worlds population is chinese? And what's with Mendel? He does speak of interbreeding, doesn't he?
    Would be quite far fetched to attest every isolated population to make the same evolutional steps though.
    "Nothing is more disgusting than the majority: because it consists of a few powerful predecessors, of rogues who adapt themselves, of weak who assimilate themselves, and the masses who imitate without knowing at all what they want." (Johann Wolfgang Goethe)
