What if humans were born fully functional?

Top Comment

People would have less to strive for...so it wouldn't be good.

Some people might outdo themselves and surpass previous records...but there is only so much people can do...

And, then, would degeneration also set in at an earlier age? Like, who wants to be subject to arthritis at the age of 20?

It would even be cool if some people would be fully functional by 25!

It should eliminate the single mothers with children issue. Half day of school and a half day of work for everyone from birth on. :)

Or... what about if we came into the world from the grave... as old people... then we slowly got younger.. and with each passing year we lost our ailments and our health improved.... we got better looking day by day then had our 21st birthday to look forward too. Then finally we reached childhood so we no longer had to work and could just have fun... then finally ... it was back to the womb (hehe)

It would create more problems than it solves. While being born "fully functional" that would actually only encompass motor skills and perhaps speech. It would not encompass the necessary life experience needed to deal with the world and other humans.

You mean could fly and breathe under water? Using close to our brains capacity, and having ultimate sight? Then we would be (Jim Carrey The Mask) "A SUPER-HERO!!"

No, fully functional as in not having an extended childhood.

Extended childhood? I didn't have an extended childhood. I had to grow up fast as did a lot of people.
