Humans are adaptable critters. Or perhaps the Lemming should say "adapting."
For example, although they've got top-rate color vision and see well enough to avoid trees at twilight, humans are most sincerely not nocturnal. But instead of accepting a role as day-dwellers, they keep developing new ways to stay active: no matter where a sun is relative to the local horizon.
They do, however, seem to like feeling "in control," even when the actual work is getting done — and quite well — by their tech.
The Lemming recalls a time when a train's "driver" didn't tell the train's AI that he was stepping out of the vehicle — and ran after the train as it left without him.
