The Experiment


Methodology:
Six billion people
Randomly placed on
Land masses
Separated by
Mountains, rivers, oceans and
Ideologies
Allow movement and contact.

Variables:
Leadership
Religion
Political beliefs
Difficult to control
Ever changing

Observations:
One: Fear, hostility, aggression
Two: Curiosity, compromise, sharing, strength

Results:
One: War
Two: Peace

This bears further investigation. Notably: can the results be skewed to favour War or Peace by the introduction of other variables.

I often feel that the human race is just someone's grand experiment.

Very nice take on the prompt.

Love it! I often think about this, too. It takes off in conspirascy-theory directions at times and sometimes to less scary ones.
