"I am he, as you are he, as you are me and we are all together..."
I am the walrus
I look at one chimp-like creature in particular with intense curiosity and her eyes return my gaze. I see the potential of the whole of humankind in her eyes. The artist, engineer, economist and executioner of nature, natural selection, then moulded, over 4 million years, that creature within its changing environment. The pelvis is tilted and broadened causing the creature to clamber onto her two legs and its brain to expand and deepen; tools are forged and culture is created......until I face myself in what that creature has become.
This is our heritage and the source of who we are; our resilience, adaptability, skill and determination; something we can call upon in our struggles and everyday life. We are the front line of this evolutionary change but we build upon the efforts of all our ancestors.
