The First…..

The first always the brave, the strong

The followers, lambs, reflections

The first to danger, excitement, adventure

By choice. The followers to danger by fear

The first always the brave, the strong

The followers, lambs, reflections

The first to danger, excitement, adventure

By choice. The followers to danger by fear

The first loved, admired, lauded, applauded

The followers forgotten, pitied, ignored

Perception of the first, flawed, exagerated

We are all the first, the only, unique beings

Underrated.

Superior?

We humans are an amazing lot really aren’t we? We’ve built machines that allow us to fly like birds, others that allow us to swim under water like dolphins and still more than give us the power to move faster than cheetahs. We believe that we are superior to animals in every way, to the point that we enslave them, devour them or simply watch them for our own amusement.

Maybe our sense of superiority stems from the fact that we have working memories which allow us to learn and therefore develop. Many scientists believe that animals have only short term memories and are therefore unable to retain the information necessary to increase intellectual capacity….

Perhaps we credit our superiority to our emotional capabilities; again, some scientists believe that animals are incapable of experiencing complex emotions such as gratitude or love…….

It could be that we feel that we are at the pinnacle of evolution because we have developed the ability to feel compassion and empathy for others……..

It maybe that we feel superior because we have such a sense of self-awareness: we think therefore we are….

Perhaps we put it all down to our superior intelligence….

What do you think? I’d love to hear from you….
