Surviving to the future means adapting to the risks of the past. Our ancestors harbored vulnerabilities that bounce off of us, and yet our lives are no easier than theirs, because the predators and parasites we contend with have adapted to us, just as surely as we have adapted to them. The predator carves the prey, the prey carves the predator in turn. Our ancestors’ defenses were pitiful by contemporary standards. (h/t Dennis at Commerce)Worth_Reading
