The human race is splitting. Again.
During and after the first evolutionary split, 250 to 30 million years ago, some of the people evolved into humans. The rest of the people devolved into apes.
This second split is evidenced by the historically high degree of divisiveness our world is experiencing. The divisiveness is apt to wane and resurface, at various geographical locations. But each time, the total world division is enhanced. More and more people get caught up in it. Some are evolving. The others are devolving.
At the end of the split, there will again be two species, the evos and the devos.
Do you know how long it took for you to become the person that you are now?
Over 200 million years!
Evo, the entity, was there.
Early in the book, you'll find this idea: Modern-day humans - you and your family and your friends, the people you know and interact with - did not evolve from apes. But you and apes both have the same remote mother.
Evo, the book, is based on archaeological findings, beginning way back in time and ending on the day you open the book to read it.
Evo will tell you stories about the pre-humans of early days as they evolved through that horrendously huge amount of time - the luck, the correct decisions, the persistence - to end up with the you that you are.
This book is about your heritage.
And, as you'll find out, it is about your destiny.
Evo was there. Evo is here, now - perhaps looking over your shoulder to see what decision you will make after reading this book.
Read about the first laugh.
Read about what happened to the primitive evolving civilization of your ancestors when flint was discovered.
How do the actions of ants remind a child of the hit-or-miss changes of evolution? What would make a long-ago female walk away from another in an ancestral huff?
In essence, evolution is change. It has no intelligence and no consciousness. It is not an entity. It is mindless.
Environmental changes, or changes in survival requirements, precipitate "devolution". Aspects of biological entities atrophy when no longer needed or used.
Evo talks about that.
Your ancient biological history is here, beginning before your ancestral family split (with the other side of the split evolving into the apes.)
Your future is alluded to.
You see, there is another family split in progress. It is well along. People are actively aligning themselves with one side of the split or the other.
Evo describes a way to make it more likely that you and your descendents will, in fact, end up with the side you prefer.
