In my extreme example, creature X would die.
Let's look at creature X in a different setting, where he's got a small
hill to jump off, but he still thinks he's a ground hugger.
If he takes that leap, then look at what he's gained. And if he has to
fall over and get brusied a few times, is it worth it?
Relate this to human achievement (example... artistic endevour)

A small minority of the worlds population die due to classical evolutionary
pressures. Instead they live or die depending on the pressures put upon them
human creations (nations at war, famine).
We're not that far removed from animals, but the evolutionary pressures we
now contend with are.
