What differentiates us from other animals is our developed brain. With the complexity and current structure of our brain, it allows us to process
stimuli picked up with our sensory apparatus by using reflected consciousness. As we live our life, events trigger memories of experiences and provoke
thoughts and feelings, similar to what has gone before. This is an evolutionary advantage cause it helps us to compare past experiences to current
ones and allowes more choices to respond to situations.
We have an advanced capability to self-reflect, partly owing to mirror neurons in our brain, of which complexity is missing in other species. The
world that we observe is changing and dynamic in nature but unfortunetly we are too stuck in our old habitual self-centered ways. The damage that we
see in our world today is party the result of human activity and decisions. When we stop thinking mainly for "ourselves" and start caring for the
whole entire planet, that's when we will evolve as a whole planet. As ONE. This is where compassion comes in. We lack empathy and compassion for our
fellow human and animal species. We can't climb on the ladder of evolution and turn back and kick our fellow human brothers and sisters down. That's
the path of the ego, we need to do this TOGETHER.
