My distant ancestors before me spent more than 100 million years as non thinking, hunter/gatherer mammals. Then in the last million or so, these ancestors of mine began to think, struggle, evolve, organize, create.
For this? All of this I see around me?
I guess I just expected more.
My ancestors crawled out of the ocean grew limbs for walking then evolved hands for climbing, grasping, survived the ice ages, conquered the plants and animals and the harsh elements, harnessed the laws of nature, created a civilization, a society.
All for this?
I don't know. I'm looking around. I'm not impressed at what I see.
