|MadSci Network: Evolution|
It seems a quality of human nature to want more and to make improvements/refinements. More can take many forms- more financial security, more food, more knowledge, more sex. Improvements too are in all aspects of life- faster transport, technology, fashion etc etc. We seem driven to do these things and are insatiable. We even experience anxiety if our own lives are falling short of our self expectation. Does this insatiability and our restless, unrelenting seeking nature have a genetic component, which has been preserved by a process of natural selection?
Re: About human natures desire for more. Is it genetic?
