I don´t need to travel back to one of my past lives to be thankful that I´m a cat.
You human beings always remind me how good I´ve got it.
The two of us are very thankful.
We cats lead relaxing lives AND we “think” for ourselves. We´re not fond of being told what to do.
I tried to flick through that science magazine you had lying around the other day but I didn´t get far reading it. My paws kept slipping on the shiny paper and I didn´t want to puncture a hole through the middle of it in case you would be annoyed.
Still, I did manage to read a caption from a US biologist; Gerald Crabtree was his name, where he had proved that you human beings have apparently, lost a little bit of your intelligence to solving simple problems. Your brains need a little longer (50 milliseconds) to digest and process information as oppose to times past.
Without being too rude, I´ve noticed this fact for quite a long time – and without having to do any experiments like Mr Crabtree had to.
That´s why I´m glad I´m a cat. My brain is still super efficient and my instincts are all intact.
Your smelly, moving machines now drive on their own and park themselves automatically. You can navigate your way around with your gadgetry instead of having to think where you are. In fact, from what I´ve heard, modern humans are literally glued to their devices 24 hours a day.
You have to wade through a flood of information everyday and I suspect that most of it is useless garbage. Gadgetry seems to be so time consuming.
And you´re never free. I thought freedom was so important for modern humans. You´ve always got your mobiles switched on. I´m glad I´m a cat and don´t have to carry one of those things around with me all the time.
And what about your politicians. They´ve got an easy time with you all because very few humans seem to be able to “think for themselves” these days. Most human beings appear to blindly believe the propaganda which is served to them.
We do seem to have the habit of conveniently switching our brains off. Perhaps you´re right and it does have soemthing to do with the fact that we have become too reliable upon our machines. We seem to have become disconnected with reality and our environment.
Or modern humans have forgotten (thank goodness?) what its like to live difficult lives with REAL problems because most of your seem to have become sick on your prosperity of the last 50 years or so. It´s such a shame because I thought the human race had something going for it.
The real life is out there and not to be had by addictively consuming your time by using modern gadgetry.
Afterall, how many cats have you seen running about the place with a box and antenna glued to their ears?
We cats worry about you all you know. 🙂
