Poetry

Love Eternal Kamal José Canção

It is the case That we commonly synthesize Charles Darwin’s origins and evolution of the species In the phrasing of “adaptation, competition and survival of the fittest” Then we tell the story, as history, Of how Darwin was in competition with another Who had a similar realization but who published too late (This person as a consequence is now mostly forgotten) Our systems of education are not too different and have contributed to both this outcome in history and our way of interpreting the results For here is Charles Darwin who as a child had a profound Love of poetry And who in his writings describing the evolution of life uses as one of his Most prevalent terms, the word: “Love” How strange that we most haven’t heard this. Perhaps we missed something that could make the threshold of life more interesting and worth learning about. Perhaps we’ve seen a picture of the evolution of species that is too simple, that the culmination in our moment of being human has confusion from an omission about what it means to be something, and to have self-value Maybe there is a threshold of evolutionary condition that we’re missing. Maybe even there is a threshold that marks the emergence of heart as the seed around which human beings would eventually blossom first as a single cell vibrating with Love, then as embryo, as children and so on we are continuing. This is all science.
