Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 25 – The Truth and Story


There is a lot of truth in the saying: “Never let the truth stand in the way of a good story.” Sometimes the truth can hard to fathom, and we have to trust and have faith in what we see happening around us.

I was watching a documentary recently about Nature’s Curiosities which focused on creatures who for the most part defied logic in being about to live where they did, or who body transformations left you wondering just how such a creature may have evolved.

Somewhere in the universe, there must be a master conductor, a power that assists the creation of beings large and small.

Some creatures I am sure are Friday creations. You know ones that don’t seem to quite right as if the experiment got away from them and they abandoned their efforts in the hope that come Monday they’d work on it again. The platypus reminds me of such an animal, though having seen one in the wild I find them the most beautiful little animals.

The other creature that fascinated me, and I should say always has, is the Komodo Dragon. The female can reproduce without the assistance of a male. Hard to believe but they do.

In the world, we live in so many crave to be accepted and in striving to achieve this, they want to be like others. They become mirrored replicants of their friends. It’s that sense of belonging we all seek, and some sadly will seek it at great cost.

So my response to the collage is varied, I’m not much of a liar so I may not, therefore, have any truth to reveal. As it is there are plenty of liars in the world, some tell white lies to deceive the ones they love, some tell massive lies and deceive whole populations.

    You bring up an interesting perspective on multiplication in nature. Human beings too, strive to create their own replicas, and it is not just biological. The next step I see is to hold back just a little, keeping some secrets. It is a secret pull towards individuality, which is often seen as, and actually is – vested interest. They actually wanted followers, not clones, but unintentionally did the opposite.

    A common threat from corporate bosses is ‘creating more power centers’ to dilute an employee’s uniqueness or authority.

    It is the evolution from amoeba to a human being.
