An excellent quote which begs an answer.
This is what we humans are all about - we ask questions!
I believe that DNA tests have proven that 250,000 years ago our Hominid(n) ancestors had 48 chromosomes, the same as the apes at that time. Yet our
next generation after the Hominid(n), (Homo Sapien, had 46 Chromosomes whereby the 3rd and 4th Chromosomes had been fused together. Our lifestyles
changed also from Cavemen to Hunter Gatherers. Then, 10,000 years ago, DNA has shown that 9 of our 23 pairs of Chromosomes had altered in a way that
scientists suspect could not have happened in an evolutionary way. (Here you have to imagine the the theme music from "The Twilight Zone"
mysteriously begins to play in the background). At the same time we appear to have developed agricultural and constructional abilities that even today
defy belief as to how and why they were built.
Whereas the above quote states that there is no need to 'act on the awareness', surely the question has to be asked as to how did this happen. It is
intriguing to say the least and not easily answered.
Someone once put it in 'layman's' terms by saying that you could put horses and cows in the same field for million of years but they will not
'evolve' into 'Hows' or 'Corses' nor will they 'evolve' into anything else.
With humans it is a matter of 'knowledge' that led us to become what we are today. The question is did that knowledge 'evolve' or was it put
there? Either way there is also the little matter of different skin colour, language and religion. Hardly something that could have 'evolved' from
one man and one woman.
The thick plottens folks!
