saddled by our genes…

dune wormSome say, we’re saddled by our tangible, physical genes – fight vs. flight, eat vs. mate, and so on.

Some say, nay, while our evolution continues to include tangible genes, we further evolve to include new intangible, cognitive, nay social memes – identity vs. occupation, spiritual vs. physical, the good of the many vs. the good of the few, and so on.

Some say, our evolution shall further evolve, including even more, new distinctions, while continuing to honor and include our priors.

This feels accurate to me, for now, as much as anything can be said to be accurate.
