Awareness and knowledge are good characteristics to seek.
My eyes blur out when reading. Sometimes I hear voices.
We are a species of habits, rituals, routine, and seeking. A species of seperation. A species of reason. A species of thought. And a species with instict, yet reason tends to over-rule intuition. A cognitive species. A species that relies on memory, often I feel more than needed.
A species with dulled awareness. Unlike our cohabitants int he animal world, their life depends on awareness and instinct. A species of creation and ingenuity. A species of punishment and reward. And species in discipline in which we closely relate to mother earth in her discipline of the moon and the seasons.
A species of breeding, for tradition not for the neccessity of species preservation.
