Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will not themselves be realized.

Not sure how the study could have any kind of reality to its conjectures drawn.  How are humans really involved?  Other than as generality?  Not a very scientific study, and the stats can be made to say whatever...sounds like someone just wants to throw something out there for responses. ..not for real science.  Hope real money that could be going to research to make a difference wasn't being used in this frivolous way.  My thoughts.
