Twitter and bisted...........

Interesting thought........

When a pathogen (virus or bacterium) infects a host organism, the host protects itself and tries to destroy the infection.

However, if the pathogen is particularly virulent, it multiplies, spreads and produces toxins that harm the host until that host dies. And this then actually kills the pathogen itself as there is nothing to thrive off.

Think natural disasters, famines, pestilence and disease.

Think global warming, population explosion, pollution, toxic waste etc etc etc.

Think human 'intelligence' as a genetic variation akin to a significant antigen shift on the influenza group. Potentially deadly. Humanity existed in harmony with it's environment until we developed 'intelligence'.

Herpes sapiens anyone???????

Hunter-Gatherer: Mass Extinction(s)
Barely Upright: Mass Spreading
