  1. Evolutions continue to be the Leader! Why evolutions are so real and humans do not take serious about it: before only taking serious, to do with weather, by saying nothing we can doing about it. Many times came to my Mind about human intelligence: changing values for the wealth of money, and came o the point. Never enough the quantity some may have: human wealth power and just health, never enough. Was times when we looking for something real: strong like a car with strong bumper, today not even bumps having. The flux was only to produce closes and beautiful one’s: now saving the seeds for health purposes, even so many of them humans, using without any knowledge, just like a monkey, if someone do, must be real good. I love Mind Philosophy: because we may can thinking humans did learn so much, should control own destiny or destination. I think use to be better into appreciate values: inclusive husband and wife was more respected than his now. The world did change from evolutions which human’s wondering why now. But evolutions continue for good and for bad, because both it is necessary special about human’s, because that what make them confused when too much good without one bad. A.Oscar
