r-Evolution  [i] 
by befo reou reyes 

there is a r-Evolution taking place on planet earth, and, as always, is happening right before our own eyes.

humanity is splitting into two variations of homo sapiens: (1) homo-ostriches and (2) homo-awarenoids.
  • homo-ostrich: a near-sighted, fearful, reactive human. easily swayed and fooled.  short attention span.  prone to cult behavior and worship.  dependent.
  • homo-awarenoid: a proactive, understanding, independent human.  has long-term vision.  a critical thinker.  doesn’t believe “blindly.”  contemplative.  resourceful.

the homo-ostrich (due to over-indulgence in sedentary, mindless practices and pharmaceutical influences) is losing the capacity to focus, to analyze, and to clearly differentiate between reality/truth and pure bullshit.

the homo-awarenoid tends to move (away from the tv, cell phone and computer screen).  s/he engages in mindful practices to fine-tune he/r awareness.  s/he has the capacity to logically link facts – in a way that results in critical thinking and rejection of bullshit theories.

it appears as if humans are at a critical point, whereas individuals have the capacity to evolve in either direction.  based upon genetics and experience, each will flow/evolve in his/her own way.

it doesn’t look good, here in 2017.  humans who spend more and more time with media are believing (more and more) in sound-bite lies.  lacking the capacity to think for themselves, they blindly follow the charismatic, elder-statesman [or clergy-man] who pretends to know the truth – but is, in fact a homo-ostrich.  like lemmings, his followers blindly bow (in worship).

…but there is hope.  a new generation of information savvy, free-thinkers are using the tools of media to become more (not less) aware.  they are engaging in mindfulness practices.   

they are challenging their bodyminds.  they don’t believe something (including this post) just because somebody says so.  they have the capacity to read, and they read from a wide variety of topics.  they have the capacity to focus, to pay attention, and (therefore) to learn.  they are less likely to turn to their cell phone for an immediate answer to a perplexing question.  they are the future…

…unless, of course, the homo-ostriches bury their heads in the sand, allowing big-power and big-money and big-influence to control, exploit, battle, and metastasize.

(in case you are wondering, i'm a bit of both, and, day-to-day,
i could flow toward r-Evolution or d-evolution.)

the gd news… is that we all have the capacity to r-Evolve into homo-awarenoids.
