First of all a big 'thank you' to all who will read this.

I have an assignment of writing a story on the topic What if there was no calculation'. Its such a stupid topic. Wouldn't we still survive? Any ideas are welcome. And the one whos answer would be most helpful will get 150 points. hehe:P

~Thanks in advance!

We probably would, but if there was no calculation we'd probably be stuck in the stone age. No calculation means no addition, subtraction, multiplication or division (forget about anything higher). There might be other systems of getting stuff done, but I'm not sure how it would work.
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.

Well, here's something.
Humans would've evolved to overcome the calcualtion-disability but if there was no calculation, the current technology will be completely unheard of.
Unless, they evolved at a rapid rate to become species that didn't have to rely on calculations (Which still is difficult, because, math is that base of EVERYTHING. Like how would they ration food? Or how would there be a sense of belonging to a community? Or how would there be distances measured without calculation?)

Well, that's my point. >.<

EDIT-Oh wait, it's old. Anyway, :)
