Early hominids such as Homo Habilis made their own tools. Take a hammer, which was constructed using a sturdy stick and sharpened rock. This simple (compared to modern advancement) technology, among many others, was used for millions of years and there was little or no improvement of the hammers. Eventually Homo Sapiens came along and as we progressed, over thousands of years, our rate of progression increased. Only 100 years ago, we were not dependent on computers/cars. Now, 100 years later, we are. In only 30 years (i believe), scientists were able to send the first man to the moon. Is it possible to quantify our progression? Why are we progressing faster and not slower? Is this evolution in action?
