Are you aware that humanity is still in a state of reversed comprehension pertaining to emotional concerns with regards evolutionary theory and extinction?.. No need to answer, thought I might just attempt to prompt your scientific interest in an idea you are aware of probably. Such is a trickier notion to navigate successfully.
