I have a theory; nature has a way of pushing us back to where we started. This concept is my version of “The Circle of Life”. Not sure of the reason but the concept has somehow shown itself to me in various forms over the last few months.
Think about it, we’re going back to basics. We as a race started with natural foods, processed it to the maximum, realized processed food isn’t good for us and now we’re going back to what the nature intended – back to the basics, back to natural produce – no additives, no preservatives, anti-insecticides and pesticides. Pretty counter-productive, isn’t it?
We made our life so convenient that we don’t need to get out of the bed anymore, for anything, only to realize that we actually do need to include physical work in our day-to-day lives so we started running aimlessly on the streets, on the treadmill. Went from running for food as hunters and gatherers to running for nothing.
We created boundaries by geography, race and color to lay the foundation for communities before we realized we’re too divided for our own good and so we started protesting it. And, now we want to go back to no boundaries?
We went from a race who invented monogamy, practiced it, even preached it and then evolved into a generation who now promotes the right to live life the way they want- remove the stigma from divorce. Well, there wouldn’t have been a problem if we had not introduced the concept of marriage and monogamy in the first place!
Ever wondered, maybe there wasn’t a point to anything we did as a race? Just some food for thought!
