Evolution is the phenomenon of reproducing organisms changing through genetic mutations and the most successful kinds of organisms (as decided by some selection process) outreproducing others and hence becoming relatively more prevalent while the least successful tend to become extinct. The fluctuating environment and the competition for survival/reproduction and a limited of resources selects for those organisms which best resist and adapt to changes, outsmart, overpower and dominate others and most effectively extract resources. In very K-selected and socially complex species such as humans, investment in the offspring and in social ties are crucial for survival and reproduction (at least they were before welfare), meaning quality is more important that quantity in such species. Moreover, organisms depleting their food sources go extent, and overly aggressive ones are at greater risk of self-harm. This explains why animals do not always make as many babies as biologically possible, and why there is sometimes peace and harmony.

How evolution works[edit | edit source]

Hydrothermal vents may been the hotbeds for the first self-replicating molecules that initiated evolution[1]

On planet Earth, evolution was likely initiated inside a 'primordial soup' near hot shorelines or oceanic hydrothermal vents.[2] Molecules in such hot and reactive conditions are in constant random motion and spontaneously assemble in random structures at a high rate. Waiting long enough, a self-replicating molecule will emerge that can copy or clone itself. Such self-replicators require a construction plan, a genetic code, which is called a genome which is also copied. Since molecules wiggle, the copied genome will contain a few mistakes (mutations) which means the decoded physical structure (the phenotype) is also changed. This allows new structures to be 'discovered' which may win out in the race for survival and hence become more prevalent. Since mutations are small, it takes many generations (the cycles between replications) for meaningful change to occur.

The ecology exerts selection pressure on the evolving structures to become adapted to it. Evolution in animals requires a large population of at least around 4000 individuals so as to maintain a high genetic variability which allows to adapt to environmental changes and avoid genetic defects from inbreeding. Below that minimum viable population size, the population risks becoming diseased and ultimately extinct.[3]

Most animals have sexual reproduction, meaning their individuals do not simply clone themselves like many plants do (asexually), but they combine the genomes of two individuals through sex, i.e. the transmission of the genome from one to the other individual. The offspring will inherit a 'patchwork' of the parent's genetic codes each about equally represented, though without the overall functional order or length of the genome changing very much. It is believed that combining genomes speeds up evolution and makes the resulting animals more resilient to parasites as the parasites will have difficulties adapting to a changing 'patchwork' of different genomes.

Since there are many different ways of surviving and different foods and conditions present in different ecological 'niches', there is an effect of speciation, meaning that organisms specialize on particular niches and become very different from another to the point that they cannot breed with each other.

To summarize, evolution only needs three ingredients: A large population of individuals each of which has a genome, any kind of mutation of the genomes, and selection. Details like sexual recombination of genomes, how the genome is exactly organized, how it is translated into a physical structure, and how selection occurs, are only secondary or optional and are themselves subject to evolutionary pressures (though some basic structures like the ribosome stay unchanged and seem have no good alternatives 'nearby', but they may have evolved initially[2]). A species can be imagined as a collection experiments, each trying out different adaptations and the best adaptations spreading across the entire population (becoming 'fixed') over the curse of many generations such that the population becomes more adapted to the ecology, i.e. has a higher fitness, which means it has a greater expected representation in the future. Fitness can be imperfectly measured by reproductive success, imperfectly because reproductive success does not say anything definite about the future. Under circumstances of very low ecological harshness and selection pressure, normally unfit individuals may reproduce more and hence achieve a high fitness which can have a dysgenic effect for the overall population viability.

Evolutionary psychology[edit | edit source]

Evolutionary psychology concerns evolved behavior, especially behavioral propensities, wants, preferences and emotions. That behavior can be genetically determined is a rather obvious fact in the animal kingdom. Most animals do not have a general intelligence as humans, yet they clearly show emotions and tendencies to act in certain ways. Since humans have evolved from animals, it is highly plausible that many human behaviors are, too, determined by evolution rather than only being the outcome of cognition and social construction. The extreme opposite view, social constructionism, assumes that most such behavior is socially constructed.

Human behaviors that occur universally in all cultures are promising candidates for evolutionary adaptations. In 1991, anthropologist Donald E. Brown published a long list of such universal behaviors which is reproduced in reorganized form below.[4][5] Additions are referenced.
