A long long time ago the animals ruled the earth after developing large brains, in a fashion that we do now. They took advantage of the world's resources and plundered nature until it could not hold them anymore. Then the animals made the decision to lower their brain capacity as this would reduce the cost on the Earth. The animals now are in their natural state in the wild (or as pets).

Though obviously fake, this story could relate to the human race. If we outstrip our resources, decreasing brain capacity would be an option to let the Earth Recover, though highly unpopular.

I'm not saying we should make ourselves retarded to save the Earth, but I just find this interesting to think about.

Woah! Sometimes I've though that! We're obviously meant for each other.

P.S. The first part is actually true.

That has to be one of the most retarded things I have ever heard.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

At first I thought this was some dumb evolution theory.

Moar.

My thoughts are generally as follows: The wolves used to be the masters of the Earth, more powerful than humans. However, their influence was destroying the earth, and they thought they couldn't save the earth. In order to save the earth, the wolves destroyed all evidence of their greatness and took away their intelligence. This created a power vacuum and the deer became intelligent. The cycle repeats itself, and we humans are next in line. Unless we do something about it.

Yeah, for some reason I think of plots for books and stuff a lot.

I don't mean to be harsh... but no one will read that tripe... unless you specifically target it at 11 year old pagan girls... but even then.

I know. My brain spins out an idea; I play with it for a little while, then decide it's not good.

Most of my ideas for books are crap.

Why not just be smart about it and not outstrip your own resources? Seems like it would be more indicative of low intelligence to outstrip your only resources.
