I will be writing stuff on this blog that may very well infuriate you. I say that because as this is my first post, I don’t know who you are and am therefore unfamiliar with the kind of things you find infuriating. But since it’s a near certainty that, like me, you belong to the primate species homo sapiens, it is also a near certainty that you allow all sorts of trivial nonsense to raise your hackles.
When a gorilla finds itself in such a state of agitation, it pounds its chest with its fists generating a sound that can carry over a mile through dense forest. Consider this blog just one more example of primate chest thumping.
We share 98% of our DNA with our closest primate cousins. It is this mere 2% differential that allows us to pass individual learning on to the next generation of our species. This is why we have smart phones and iPads and space stations while gorillas are content with a nice bunch of bananas.
So please, pull up a chair, grab a banana and ask yourself: which is the superior species? I’ll be analyzing this and other questions in much greater detail in future posts and if you happen to be a fan of entropy, impermanence, chaos and quantum uncertainty, perhaps you’ll pop in from time to time to share an idea…or a banana.
