Monday Moaning Change Adaptation
This is a question that came to mind after a conversation. What does it really mean to change and should one change to what is going on in the world. Or can we simply be ourselves. Is it really called change, or is it more an adaptation to what is going on. What if it is nothing more than a reference we keep for later use, so that a certain thing would not happen again, thus keeping us from experiencing the same issues?
When I was asking that to myself I came across two different levels of what might be considered changeable. Due to not sure what to call it as of yet I keep calling it change for now.
There is change in the physical world around us. We are the only species who have to adapt to the changes created by ourselves So much for evolution.. There is the first time I use adapt instead of change. Can we call it change when all we do is adapt to our own inventions/environment? Is it us changing, in let us say, more lazy due to elevators and taller buildings? Or are we simply adapting to the fact it is made easy and does not take effort. I think there is a slight difference between the two as one is more on an emotional and mind state level. One will pretty much lead to the other. So a state of not having to take effort results us into becoming lazy.
All this is physical change we can see and feel and we build ourselves. To which we need to adept and learn how to use.
Than the other one is the mental change. In as said earlier we use to adept to the physical changes in the world.
But there is also a deeper sense of change. Or as I mentioned above, more like a reference in our memories. It is that what makes us who we are today. But does that really? Could it not be implanted in our DNA that we react the way we do? That we change our ways on how to react to a certain situation, is that not just doing something based on memory.
But would that change who we are, or maybe better, should that change us?
I know I can very blunt, it is who I am. I know I want to punch every goddamned ass who lays a hand on a woman. That being something that has built over the course of my life due to experiences, but I would not say it changed me. ‘Me’ being a complete package.
Changing due to what we learn. Is that also really true or does it go deeper or is it maybe more shallow. And just looking at myself here. I am just as blunt with the new found information. My opinion may have changed, or better has adapted to the new information to suit my own. Does a change in opinion change a person? Or does is just the action altered using nothing more than reference.
In the end we all going to say that is called change. But here I am with all these new questions and answers that have no scientific values to compare with. It did not change me as a person. All it did is create more respect for everything different.
All this ranting is all very personal. And I am doing my best to change the world for the better, without having to adept after, without changing it. That might really mean to just make people think and have them decide what world they want and respect those living. In the meantime it is the world pushing down on us telling us we need to adept to our creations. It is bringing us back to the physical change that seems to be nothing more than a vicious circle.
We create the world and physically adapt to it changing our way of thinking. But it does not have to change who you are.
Is there even a conclusion to make? Right now after a single day of thinking and writing? The answer would be a simple, NO.
Would there still be something I could say?
As a matter of fact as opinionated as I am, sure I can. We show different signs that we are acting differently in different situations. It is where old emotions and lessons learned interact with the world around us. It is like we adapt to the situation at hand. Think we lost sight of what evolution truly means. It is living with and in harmony with the world. Instead of changing it to a single person idea and have the rest adapt to it.
After all this writing one has to wonder whether the evolving we do, if we can call it that, is nothing more than artificially created. Something artificially is not evolving now is it?
Enough about this thinking if change is either evolving or change or just adding.
Today I am featured in a podcast so want to hear this guy’s voice with his bad English, go over to Kenny and Kylie at the Kenny&Kylie podcast page. I am for sure not sure I want to hear myself.
