    In the long run, the ability of a species to evolve is more important than anything else in determining its competitive success. This is true almost by definition: given enough time, the ability to adapt and improve will overtake any initial disadvantage.

    Nice article. Reminds me of Asimov’s robot novels where he asserts that the longer lived humans became less dynamic because they had more to lose from taking risks. This seems logical to me, a more dynamic human with a shorter lifespan may very well supplant a longer lived but less procreative society. Its happening now in a way, India, Latin America the Muslim world and China (to a lesser extent because of draconion population growth laws), are far outpacing the so called first world in population growth. Clearly in a few generations the population will be evolving in its make up.

    But I still want to live for a long time.
