“Wait, evolution is proceeding in the direction of degradation?
“Yes. Scientific evidence shows that the brains of people of our species has decreased. I emphasize that I speak not about the Neanderthals, but about our direct ancestors. Modern Europeans’ brain mass was reduced by an average of 200-250 grams compared to the Cro-Magnons. Do you know what 250 grams? It’s just the weight of the brain of Bonobo chimpanzees.

It will be able to exist within the right integration of these two forces in the middle line.
