Abstract

Evolution in natural environments has endowed humans with a cognitive system that is specialized in processing information about living things. Yet the presence of living things in the human living environment is ever decreasing, which leads to the underdevelopment of this system. The author speculates that biomorphic architecture or design can counteract this trend, which would have positive implications for various aspects of human functioning and could provoke subtle shifts in certain areas of human thinking.
