The Evolution of Text Recording Devices
The world is changing every second, thanks to evolution. Evolution is something that has been occurring, on every object that exists in the world. During the process, the changes may not be obvious within a very short period of time. However, the changes accumulate and the species gradually modified to become a new one1. So, in the long run, the change could be and is usually magnificent. As a modern person, how could we know what things were like in ancient times? Thanks to the increasingly convenient and advanced recording devices, we can easily get access to understanding the Darwin’s theory of Evolution by visiting a library or simply by browsing the Internet. From books to articles to be read online, we can see that the text recording method is undergoing evolution throughout the decades as well. The evolution of text recording devices mainly includes from crafting on bamboo and wooden slips, then writing onto papers, typewriters and then to using computers. In this article, the evolution of text recording devices is investigated and explained with the five characteristics, suggested in the theory of evolution by Charles Darwin, one by one.
1. Reproductive Potential
2.1 On Living Organisms
In the process of evolution, reproductive potential is one of the characteristics for sure. Every species of living organism needs to have reproductive potential so that when one generation becomes mature, they can reproduce and give birth to a new generation so that the species would not extinct and disappear from the earth forever. Their offspring are very similar to themselves, but there are still some differences, large or small, maybe in the appearance or habits etc.
1.2 On Non-Living Organisms
As for non-living objects, they do have “reproductive potential” as well. It is not that the objects will reproduce, get pregnant and give birth, but that they are able to initiate the production of a new...
