Small Scale Evolution

July 24, 2007 at 3:13 am (Uncategorized)

I meant to do this a long time ago, but what the hell! Better late than never!

I’m one of those people who loves just sitting around and just taking in the world, if you know what I mean. It was when I was doing this once that I began to reflect on what I like to call “small scale evolution”.

The specimens under study presently are European girls.

Between the ages of zero and four, there are no worries, no issues. Everything takes care of itself. You just have to sleep, eat, and grow fat.

From four to about twelve or so, there are a few things to take care of, but not enough to make you go crazy. The thrill you get from swinging high is as far as it goes. It’s a great time…

Between twelve and twenty, girls begin to care too much about how they appear to others. This is the age when they get a little quiet. The noisy and boisterous girls that they were a few years ago are dead.

Before they know it, they’re young mothers, caring for their own young.

I probably didn’t bring out the effect properly, but I observed all this when I was sitting in a park. I was able to simultaneously watch the behaviour of people in different age groups, and it struck me how huge changes are brought about in people in such a small time.
