a Monkey

So the story goes, we all evolved from monkeys. I believe it, but still it seems practically impossible. While so many other species out there have evolved over just as long a period of time, and can’t even make a decision outside of instinct, how is it that people can question whether we came from monkeys? How is it that people can question anything at all? Dogs are pretty smart. They don’t question what they evolved from. Maybe they’re even smarter than we think and just decided to leave well enough alone…a concept that monkeys and people haven’t really been able to embrace. I think it’s a good thing though that we haven’t. We’d probably be living in a communist world with no real feeling of being free to chase our dreams. Here’s a good question: why are there still monkeys? Why, after millions of years, didn’t any of them evolve into any other more “intelligent” monkey-like creatures? Maybe it wasn’t a fluke…maybe something was tampered with…maybe monkeys are and always were just monkeys and we just came from something that just happened to fit the “monkey evolved” mold. Monkeys are cool.

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
