New Monkey

INTRODUCTION

Homo Sapiens have come a long way from where we first started as apes. We are the smartest of all the apes, with our big brains, complex linguistics and extensive technology.

It is indubitable that we have used our gifts to reach remarkable heights. From the depths of the Mariana Trench to the edges of the solar system, Homo Sapiens has left its impact. So the question is, can we evolve any further? Of course, we will always continue to innovate, but can we evolve into a New Monkey? We already are. While physical education might feel like it has stopped, our money minds continue to explore, discover, create and adapt.
