The Garden of Life

Getting by day to day is and always has been a consuming effort for all life forms. Our own history, given the advantages of physical configuration (as opposed to say bottlenose dolphins, ravens, or pigs) and complex communication skills accelerating creativity (as opposed to limiting evolutionary tangents like chimpanzees), has been one of exceptional development in dealing with life's challenges.
