Evolution has taken a toll on us,
Technology has made us weak without it;
Made us less of the species we are
From the strong and fierce hunters and gatherers we were
Now only a few still possess these strengths
And even fewer pass these down to the next generation.
In our quest of technological advancement outside of ourselves
Outside our immediate flesh and blood
We grow weaker in all forms; while we depend on it.
As we surround ourselves with machines and devices
That do all the “hard work” for us
The thinking, the building, the movement; actions in all shape and form
We forget how strong we were;
How fierce we were, hunting mammoths and other giant beasts.
Now we only show this power forth in Sports
And civilisation calls those that physically have this always as savage
When we pause and take a look back
To increase ourselves
Rather than shift our increase to the machines that aid us…
Why build protection around a soft cocoon?
When the cocoon can lose this protection?
Why not infuse the cocoon rather with this protection;
So the protection cannot be removed or lost?
Survival of the fittest has always been the case;
Survive or be eliminated;
Evolve or devolve with external protection;
Evolve, in oneness, to survive?
The choice is ours.
