Diogenes

Sorry - upon a second reading this "rang an alarm":
"...we might conclude that maybe the evolutionary experiment (or accident) which gave rise to us wasn't such a hot idea after all."
Had to reach back 40 years, but I used to read Koestler and this popped into my head:

"The disastrous history of our species indicates the futility of all attempts at a diagnosis which do not take into account the possibility that homo sapiens is a victim of one of evolution's countless mistakes." The Ghost in the Machine

I used that possibility as the basis for a paper required in applying for some scholarship or grant money back then.

I didn't get that money - go figure.
