Far greater than I ponder this

less in fact, than all combined

when espoused upon at length


Far leaner am I to bandy this

to and fro with specious design

then caroused about with strength


Near winded am I; saving that

knowing simply, not at all

amazed with no real direction


Near blinded am I? There's that

guessing before the silent fall

amused by unnatural selection

thought provoking read

There are certain amount of serendipity involved in unnatural selection. While I'm having trouble fathoming your meaning, I have often written that at the time we stopped hunting and gathering, our species stopped improving with natural selection, and embarked on using technologies correcting genetic deficiencies like myopia and hearing loss, creating a continuing degeneration of the human species by passing on more and more flawed DNA to the next generation. While there are still those with genius, overall human intelligence may be much lower for humans than it was at 10,000 BC.
