Are We Going Gaga as the Lady Suggests or Are We Evolving?
This week I am going to continue with the exploration of human evolution, this requires walking down some lateral pathways. Last week the pathway we took involved the Yeti, Sasquatch, Big Foot—the hominoids of which there are said to be five species on earth at present. Oh yes they exist!
The Relationship between Evolution and Innovation
People who find the Intersection between cultures—draw upon their experience from two or more cultures— produce creative innovations in cuisine, fashion, architecture, music, art, language and even in the way they relate. The world is providing us all with a smorgasbord of remixes.
Most innovations are small micro changes which are useful to society but are we living in the era of a fundamental revolutionary innovation of our culture, not just an improvement but a contextual change?
The next question that follows on from that is; can we be on the verge of an even more profound change, an evolutionary shift, a mutation of the species involving the physical body and physical environment.
Vindaloo Prawns, Rice and Beer
Also after a brain feeding curry at the Dheli Lamma with Professor Rodney ‘Skateboard’ Jones (see January 25th Post Skateboarding-The Centaur Rides).
As I do not read newspapers or own a Television, I check in once in a while with friends or the internet on mainstream TV led culture.
From the Prof’s inspiration I will be having a look at Lady Ga Ga …can she sing…. does it matter? She seems to know how to hit ‘cultural buttons’ …is she just a product or is she the latest Madonna-esque savy girl-powered celebrity….hmmm…artist, zombie puppet or instinctive psychologist?
Lady Ga Ga is such a phenomenal and sudden success who uses a lot of provocative symbolism in her performance—so I will be having a look at her astrology chart and her videos. (Alison might have something say about this subject?)
Plus Stephen Colbert, Cool-bert, is he America’s first mainstream counter culturist, is there such a thing?
I was first exposed to him in 2008 when staying with friends Scott and Jen in California, I love him, but it took me a few minutes to get where he was coming from. Apparently the stats suggest that a whole chunk of his audience are ‘nod along in agreement’ true blue republicans, who never get where he is coming from.
Here is what he said as he was standing next to W in 2006 at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.
“ I stand by this man. I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things. Things like aircraft carriers and rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message, that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound—with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world”
Another Freakin Crazy Story?
"There were Giants, in the earth in those days." (Genesis 6:4)
Giants, I have been really switched on by the stories of giant skeletons that have supposed to have been found, the consistent data I have read about over the decades suggest 20 foot humans—holy moly!
In regards to fossils what many people do not realize is that “Nature cleans her palette”, meaning the whole evolutionary story is constructed from a surprisingly small about of bones and skulls.
Where nature misses does that institute I mentioned last week clean up the rest?
Check out the Project Camelot interview at the bottom of this post it is over 90 minutes long, but it is only through watching things like this consistently that you can start to see the authenticity of alternative research. Amongst other things he talks about giant skeletons…sensational man but no way sensationalist.
Don’t Miss the Link
A Mammoth looks like an earlier model of an elephant that is the idea of evolution, it’s a good idea an in the development of human intellect, at the moment though it is just an idea.
The Mammoth was more suited to very cold conditions and the Elephant looks like it an adaption of the same animal to different environmental conditions, that’s a good insight, but is that is all it is?
The Flight of the Crow
For now, lets cut to the quick, is there room for individual creativity, adaptive evolution, instant creationism and the intervention of species by other species in the true picture of how we change. I believe so, in which case how do they fit together?
