(Natural News) In the 1960s, a scientist named John Calhoun created a “mouse utopia” where populations of mice would enjoy everything they needed, essentially without effort: Unlimited food, water, living space, population growth without predators and so on. It started with eight mice, who began to reproduce quickly, enjoying their newfound “utopia” with unlimited resources. Within 4 years, however, the population had become extinct through self-annihilation even though all the resources it needed for survival were readily available, including ample space to live.
What happened to Calhoun’s mice? He repeated the experiment multiple times using mice and rats. Each time the outcome was the same: Extinction within 1588 days. (Populations began to collapse at around 560 days, for reasons discussed below.)
What we are witnessing in the world today, right now, with the self-inflicted annihilation of humankind, almost perfectly reflects observations from Calhoun’s “mouse utopia” experiments. Except now, it’s happening in the world of humans.
Filmmaker Mike Freeman has even made a film about these experiments. It’s called Critical Mass, and you can learn about it at CriticalMassFilm.com.
A bioethicist named Jan Kuba? has written extensively about this on a site called PhysicsOfLife.pl. There, on a page dedicated to Calhoun’s experiment, he describes the Calhoun experiments as, “one of the most important in human history,” and he delves into the meaning of all this for humankind. On this page, he describes the phases of live and annihilation through which the “mouse utopia” passed. Here’s a summary:
