Technology: a human tool but for how long?

Brain-Signal Proteins Evolved Before Animals Did (Quanta)

Introduction LO: This is another piece of evidence of the Blueprint in Life, Nature and in the Universe. If my assertion holds then it's nearly impossible that we are "alone" in the Universe. Apparently, the brain has been looking, throughout Evolution, for the most suitable candidate. This also implies that the brain will not stop looking for an even better suited...
