Given that evolution has taken millions of years to bring people where we are now, what is the biological function of laziness?

If you have ever seen a nature documentary, you should have noticed that predators are a very large part of the time.They rest and save their energy for when they really need it. That is an extremely efficient strategy. Nature does not tolerate energy waste. An additional advantage is that you do not damage yourself as long as you rest. Injuries are, in nature, deadly quite quickly-think of infections.

Laziness is a normative notion and has a negative significance.So you are socialized, educated: laziness is bad. You should be productive. But believe me, the world is almost at the bottom of all that productivity. You prove the world a tremendous service by doing nothing. And so it was also meant: after the hunt, after the food gathering (and for propagating): inactivity. The idea that a man should work eight hours a day is fabricated by factory directors and other slave floats. But we have now strayed so far from our very nature that we think inactivity is ‘ laziness ‘. Our educators, teachers, factory directors use the word laziness to give you a feeling of guilt: you are productive anyway, you are very useful…

My idea: Be lazy.And be active if necessary. Your boss thinks it’s necessary to work hard. Stop. Switch to ‘ smart ‘ work. And be lazy the rest of the time. The world would be grateful to you.

In nature, food is scarce.A population of a species will increase until the food sources become so scarce that the animals are on the brink of malnutrition. Any further enlargement irrevocably leads to starvation of part of the population. For people, hundreds of thousands of years were the same. In order to survive in such a situation, you have to try to be something more hasedly than the rest.

This means that you don’t have to waste energy.As an individual, you need to do the essentials and save your energy. You should also eat as efficiently as possible, so things with a lot of calories. This is why we still find sweet and greasy things.

Laziness and gluttony are therefore useful survival mechanisms.These traits are in our genes and in the mere 10,000 years that we have an agricultural economy and laziness and gluttony to the cardinal sins do not disappear.

That is a misunderstanding about evolution; Not all properties present in an organism are useful.

Evolution arises because organisms transmit characteristics to their offspring.These are characteristics that they have received from their own parents, but also spontaneous mutations.

It is really not true that only useful properties are passed on: it is enough if the property is not bad enough to help the organism to soap before it has the chance to reproduce itself.And it may also be that things were once useful, in an organism older than we are, but no longer useful in mammals, for example. It is not difficult enough to select from, so it is passed on, but that does not mean that it is useful.

There are heaps of physical disorders that are really not useful, for example, but they are passed on.That is because they are not lethal and do not affect fertility. Often these diseases are passed on before one even knows that one has that disease.

So you simply cannot argue that BECAUSE a characteristic is present, it must THEREFORE be useful.

Laziness is a survival mechanism that reminds us that we should not hunt so hard.

Unfortunately we do not listen but we have to have more 鈧?on accounts.But you can not eat them.

Nature is itself lazy; It always follows the path of least resistance.

Laziness is strangely one of the seven so-called main zondes instead of an eighth virtue.There has even been iig one culture that pursued laziness as much as possible. Was for them a philosophy that as much as possible ‘ be lazy ‘ was good.

It also has countless benefits (especially for molluscs incidentally).Mr R Ziel told the tip of the iceberg.

Toma una siesta..

A human is not supposed to work for 8 hours at all and that seven days a week.There is no man on Earth for whom 8 hours of work is secretly not just two hours long. Preferably we all work a little less and secretly prefer to watch a movie while we are lazy on the couch. So We are actually living against our nature and therefore people are becoming physically worn out or touching a lot of people, in the case of those who do more theoretical work, quickly subjected to a burnout or other mental complaints. Naturally, like all animals in the animal kingdom, people are a little lazy. Laziness is survival-technically good for a number of issues.

  • Your body is optimally resting on efforts.

In the case of our ancestors this was the hunt or a long journey.

  • The mental condition is positively influenced by rest.
  • A man thrives at rest! No one has ever become happy with too much hay on his or her fork.

  • You save energy for the times when it is needed. So think of the hunt, self-defense, escape from danger and also not entirely insignificant; Sex.
  • Your body is not subject to excessive stress on the joints ergo; Your body wears much slower than anyone who bukes, lifts, supports and pulls all day, for example, car parts.
  • And finally, the main reason why I think that laziness is in our system; Man is originally from Africa.
  • Africa is a very hot area. Our ancestors had to be lazy for the same reason why lions and Jaguars lie almost 80% of the afternoon lounging under a tree or near a stream. That is because they will otherwise overheats what death can cause in warm places like Africa. Therefore, in countries where it is hot, you also have the phenomenon that Siesta is called. That’s a moment of some hours of rest at the time when the sun is highest in the sky and so is the hottest moment of the day. In The Netherlands, however, we have a little less to laziness In this respect.
