THERE ARE NO DARWINISTS:

Human Brain Has Nearly Ideal Network of Connections, Research Shows (Robert Preidt, July 15, 2015, HealthDay News) 

A new study examining why the human brain evolved the way it did could lead to new ways to treat brain disorders, researchers say.

The brain developed into its present form to speed transfer of information from one region of the brain to another, so people can perform at peak capacity, according to Dmitri Krioukov, an associate professor of physics at Northeastern University in Boston, and colleagues.

The investigators found that the brain's structure contains an almost perfect network of connections.

Sublime.
