Scissor Dance: Ain’t No Mountain

aint no mountainAin’t No Mountain High Enough, 2003

As sub-insignificant specks in a vast and indifferent Cosmos, can we afford a sense of proportion?

As artists and thinkers, maybe, maybe not. As living organisms subject to natural selection, a sense of proportion is not a survival trait.

On the other hand, if, as a species rather than as individuals, and if a species were collectively capable of a sense of proportion, it might be a good thing for human culture to acquire that sense. Stretch our collective giraffe neck in an act of Lamarckian cultural evolution, proportionately.

As a species, are we that fluid? Maybe not.
