Emergence of man

The emergence of man has brought about a profound change in the evolutionary development of planet Earth. The oldest recorded abstract art dates back 72000 years. Although it is a far cry from our modern perspective, it is this ability to assimilate abstract thought that has set the human race apart from any other species. This creative capacity has also  given humanity the ability to acquire immense technical knowledge. Collectively, as a species, we hold great power to either nurture or devastate. Create or destroy. As individuals we possess infinite potential and it is our combined efforts that make up the collective human presence.

Every single person is special in their own particular way. Each with a unique perspective of the world, adding to the immense diversity of human culture and expression. In every individual lies the key to further understanding the nature of humanity, it is in the essence of human nature that one finds compassion and love. We all have our own unique perspective and identity, but as a species we are all essentially the same. There are certain crucial, somewhat primal instincts that drive each and every one of us. At a subconscious level our desire to find a mate or our fear of death may control the decisions we make on a daily basis. But ultimately, our greatest desire is to be loved, before we inevitably surrender our mortality to both time and space.
