    Evolution is a powerful thing. Change in our external surroundings affects our genetic makeup over time. Humans have adapted over millions of years by dropping our tails, standing upright and acquiring language. Nature’s way of making sure only the strongest traits, functions and cells survive dictate how we interact and sustain ourselves every single day. Appendicitis? Not to worry. We don’t need that organ any more (well, that debate isn’t over – but that is for a different blog). Today it is all about survival of the fittest (or most useful).

    Tools evolve over time as well. Partially due to the evolving humans and animals that are creating the tools, but also because of the different challenges we face as time marches on. Can you imagine a scientist in 2015 utilizing the same tools as one did in 1915? Or even 2000? Our technical tools aren’t necessarily net new inventions, but they are evolutions of existing ones. Aircraft is a great example. Orville and Wilbur Wright’s core invention is still the backbone of any global flight today. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is very different from their first 600 lb. flying machine, but not completely unrelated.
