The Evolving Monkey

  1. Are you special? And does thinking you are destroy your life?

    • First answer.
      • No and yes.
      • But the answer can also be: yes and no.
      • It depends on what you mean by "special".
    • You are not special.
      • In almost all possible ways, this is true.
      • No one, including you and me, are special.
      • We, you, are no more special than the squirrel in the backyard, or the rock in the ground, or the ground itself.
      • This does not mean you and I do not matter, we do, only that we are not special.
      • The squirrel, rock and ground also matter, but are not special.
      • On a universal scale, nothing is special.
