In nature, everything takes a path of least resistance. Call it "lazy" if you will. Now, things that happen in nature commonly reflect things in our "modern" society. If you look at the way traffic moves for example, it looks like blood flow in an organism, even more so in the night because the lights on the back of cars are red. One might think we have become detached from society in terms of intelligence, but everything else in our biology and instincts we are still very much part of our monkey ancestors. I was thinking the other day, why people especially males, masturbat. Why is it that we jack off to other people having a fuck? Well it's our animal instincts right? telling us to procreate as much as possible so our species doesn't die off. Well then, if we are very much a part of nature instinctively then things we do are linked to these instincts, and if a natural instinct of society is to take the path of least resistance, we will also take the path of least resistance. If you look at society now, we have become very apathetic and indifferent to things that can very much destroy us. We idlely sit by and ruin the planet to support an unsustainable economic model just because it is the easiest thing to do (path of least resistance), how will we suddenly break out of millions of years of evolution to do something that requires more effort than the easiest thing to do?
