I hate to think
that there are 9.2 billion different ways
to perceive the same event.
slightly different realities
all going on simultaneously
on this spinning rock of ours.
I recently heard a world renown evolutionary biologists
Say that there is no way we would’ve evolved to see anything like an objective reality
He says we’d evolve to see whatever reality we needed to in order to survive
Evolving to perceive a reality we need
And not the one we have
Creating time and space
And all of the other structures of the world we play in
Just so we could adapt to survive
That’d be a trip
Adapting to a reality that is also adapting to us?
Is that what it means?
If we are evolving in all sorts of ways
And one of those ways
Is how we perceive reality,
Is it our perception that is changing
This is one I will need to put at least three days
Of thinking into
Probably while in the shower,
Or in traffic…
I just need to scroll up
And reread my first two lines
To figure it out
I just hate to think that though…
Now I’ll need something new
to play with
while driving to work tomorrow
