One Cells To Now
How did life evolve from single celled organisms to what we have today?
One theory is kind of like the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup origin story.
A commercial way back in the day.
A guy was eating peanut butter, and he bumped into a lady eating chocolate.
A new candy was invented.
They suspect this may have been how single celled organisms turned into multi-celled organisms.
One bigger single celled organism tried to “eat” a smaller one.
Or wrap itself around the smaller one and, like the Borg, tried to assimilate it.
But for some reason they worked well together.
The smaller one had some functions that the bigger one didn’t have.
The bigger one provided some kind of protection.
And the smaller one provided some kind of functional utility.
This is how things like “co-evolution” take place.
Bees and flowers evolve to work together to benefit both.
Of course, flowers and bees are essentially biological robots.
They don’t have any idea what they are doing and why.
But over the long course of natural history, they are much better together than they are apart.
This is, more or less, why molecules form.
Molecules are stabler than the individual atoms that make them up.
A very strange, and little understood example of “co-evolution” is humans and our gut biome.
We have tons of organisms living inside our digestive track.
These are NOT part of “us.”
Our DNA does not create these, any more than a flower DNA creates the bee.
We have a naturally evolved, overlapping benefit between our gut biome and us.
“We” give them a safe place to live, and “they” help us stay healthy.
Plenty of studies show the relationships between our gut biome and health.
Why or how this evolved is anybody’s guess.
So, what’s the point of all these biology?
We humans kind of have the same relationships with each other.
At least we WANT to.
Just like a couple of atoms are better off together than apart, we humans are better off in groups or pairs than alone.
With the right mindset, interacting with other humans is pleasant and enjoyable.
Just a friendly conversation with a strangers if friendly and enjoyable.
If you never get their name and never see them again.
But when you interact with a friendly stranger and both of you suspect there IS a potential for overlapping benefit, that’s much more pleasant.
And much more enjoyable.
It all starts with a simple mind shift.
To STOP seeing everybody as “separate.”
And to START seeing everybody as part of the mysterious expansion of life.
This is easy to do with a simple, daily meditation exercise.
One that will slowly eradicate all anxiety.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
