We comprehend very little of our world, yet we purport to understand everything. We look to the stars yet can’t understand what is happening before us on this little rock. We understand what it takes to keep our bodies going, yet we don’t know how we came to be.
We notice the big events in our lives, the successes and often the failures. Ingrained on our timelines are wars, famine, football results. Life on a whole though passes us by until we stop and take stock. Then we start to realise that, unknown to us, we’ve missed huge moments in our lives and take for granted all the technology that allows us to continue our existence. Yet we don’t know how we came upon these moments. Is technology just like evolution?
What a beautiful beginning! The first chapter (The Unknown), in particular, is so philosophical and amazing
