To understand who we are, it is important to go back to where our kind began. I was immediately drawn to the displays that demonstrated the evolution of Earth's landmasses. All around the room, different globes were placed, outlining how the earth looked 2, 5, even 10 million years ago. With each couple million years, earth's surface moved and shifted, leading to major changes in the ecostystem and all of those living in it. Watching my planet evolve in a sense took me out of my everyday life and gave me a much needed sense of perspective. Every shift and change was a result of random sequences of events, and each one had huge effects on the world we live in today. To realize how arbitrary our entire existence really is in the grand scheme of things was not only a wakeup call, but also a glance into the rich history of the planet we call our home. How we got lucky enough to where all of those random events fell into place exactly the way they did, no one will ever truly understand. I became more aware of the majesty and mystique of our world, and while the logical elements of how we came to be were presented, I feel even more intrigued and mystified regarding the world around me.
