The Evolution of the Human Face
The human face might make a huge transformation in the future. Nickolay Lamm, an artist from the U.K site MyVoucherCodes.co.uk worked with an expert in genomics to create pictures of what the human face may look like in 20,000, 60,000,and 100,000 years from now.
There are two possible scenarios concerning the evolution of the human face. The first scenario is humans having control over of the human genome. As a result genetic traits can be selected and genetic disorders can be eliminated completely. The second scenario is that natural human evolution will continue and facial features will undergo a change.
In 20,000 years from now it is believed that humans will have a larger head to accommodate a larger brain. Aside from that no other dramatic changes will be made. In 60,000 years the head may grow even larger in addition to the eyes. Humans will also have thicker eyelids and darker skin for protection against UV rays and in 100,000 these features will become even more pronounced.
Overall, it is believed that the human face as we know it will undergo a very prominent change as centuries go by. Although far from understated these changes will help to protect humans from harsher environmental conditions.
