This book examines why humans have big brains, what big brains enable us to do, and how specialized brains are associated with eusociality in animals.

But if the global human superorganism survives and evolves, its surveillance
systems and initiatives to optimise ecosystem function raise the prospect of an
intelligent Earth—an Earth that would, through her global human superorganism,
be able to foresee malfunction, instability or other danger, and to act with
precision. If that is ever achieved, the greatest transformation in the history of our
planet would have occurred, for Earth would then be able to act as if it were, as

THE HUMAN SUPERORGANISM Only a fraction of the microbiota that associate
closely with people has been genetically characterized and identified. With the
advent of new technologies that enable characterization of previously
noncultivatable microbes, it is becoming clear that a vastly larger number of
microbial species than previously thought shares a common environment with
the human host.4 People are born with a genome that is almost exclusively
human, but in the first ...

Humanmicrobe coevolution joins the estimated 23,000 proteincoding human
genes with 3 to 5 million microbial genes, constituting a human superorganism, a
vastly expanded genetic universe for probing the secrets of human health and
disease. Genomic medicine based on human genes alone generates tens to
hundreds of billions of dollars of economic activity in the United States,
depending on how it is defined and measured. Human microbiomic medicine,
barely out of the birth ...

Using a medium World Energy Council energy use scenario, and a medium
United Nations Population Division scenario of 9.3 billion people, human
sociometabolism is on course to reach 48 TW by 2050 (Haberl 2006: 94), 32 per
cent of terrestrial GPP and 64 per cent of NPP (Table 8.3). The biomassderived
component of metabolism is expected to rise to around 20 TW, or 28 per cent of
terrestrial NPP (Table 8.3). The human superorganism would be consuming one
third of the ...

While it officially began in the midtwentieth century, a creative reading of
Sonnenberg's and Müller's work suggests that the collapse of the human
superorganism began at least a century earlier. As you recall, hay fever appears
a short time later. Sanitary improvements may have been partly responsible, but
the first changes in H. pylori–associated disease occurred before major sanitary
reforms. Something else altered H. pylori's interaction with its host before sewers
and clean water.

The primary distinction is that we have only one example of human civilization.
This is not true about the systems we have discussed in earlier chapters, with the
exception of evolution considered globally. The uniqueness of the human
superorganism presents us with questions of fundamental interest in science,
related to how much we can know about an individual system. When there are
many instances, we can use information provided by various examples and the
statistics of their ...
