The original species of our genus were supposed to resemble each other in unequal degrees, as is so generally the case in nature; species (A) being more nearly related to B, C, and D, than to the other species; and species (I) more to G, H, K, L, than to the others.
But as the original species (I) differed largely from (A), standing nearly at the extreme points of the original genus, the six descendants from (I) will, owing to inheritance, differ considerably from the eight descendants from (A); the two groups, moreover, are supposed to have gone on diverging in different directions.
And the two or more parent-species are supposed to have descended from some one species of an earlier genus.
It is worth while to reflect for a moment on the character of the new species F14, which is supposed not to have diverged much in character, but to have retained the form of (F), either unaltered or altered only in a slight degree.
In the diagram, each horizontal line has hitherto been supposed to represent a thousand generations, but each may represent a million or hundred million generations, and likewise a section of the successive strata of the earth's crust including extinct remains.
We shall also have two very distinct genera descended from (I) and as these latter two genera, both from continued divergence of character and from inheritance from a different parent, will differ widely from the three genera descended from (A), the two little groups of genera will form two distinct families, or even orders, according to the amount of divergent modification supposed to be represented in the diagram.
When Nampa arrived at the scene, there was a standoff between the two groups who were gathering at the cemetery to pay homage to their fallen heroes, but OTA members were blocking the other group from proceeding to their ancestors graves which they supposed
to visit first before proceed with the official ceremony as per traditional law, but the Namibian police intervened to separate the two groups.
These cages are the lies; unspoken conversations going around us all the time, who we are supposed
to be, what we are supposed
to do, what career path we are supposed
to take, what we are supposed
to look like and what we should be striving for.
