I recently had an interesting discussion with a philosophy professor at my school. He was talking about some wierd idea of "human cyborgs". Human beings, who are addicted to internet sex have allowed their machines to become apart of them. It got me to thinking, what other types of behaviors that normally would have been repressed or an alternative would have been forced on a person in the past presently exsists outlets for what might have been an evolutionary pressure that under older conditions would usually reduce fecundity. For example, my friends mother is allergic to wheat gluten. Now there are many substitutes for wheat based food. However, 100 or 200 years ago, unless she was very rich and her family knew what was wrong with her, she probably would have died soon after weaning since she couldn't consume bread and other wheat staples, at the very minimum she would have been ill most of her life and had difficulty buying food since her selection would have been limited. In the reverse a trait that might have in the past,not mattered when it came to fecundity, now because of relief which now allows a trait to be expressed instead reduces fecundity. For example, if an individual has difficulty forming relationships with other people and relishes in fantasy relationships from literature or pornagraphy, might have 100 or 200 years ago had been forced to form relationships because there was no alternative or an alternative was not available to them (being unable to read escapist literature due to illiteracy). Or someone who was homosexual might have in the past, in order to make up for their inablity (due to societal pressure) in the past to enjoy a mate of their sexual preference, might have married someone of the opposite sex anyway since social pressure would have made an open homosexual relationship impossible. Today some of that pressure is largely not present and someone who might have reproduced naturally may not (note this does not account for artifical inseminations). Any thoughts on this?
