When there are certain changes in the environment, the adaptability of species also changes, just as the changes my life has gone through as I moved between different cities, from a life more akin to the primitive nature to a more urbanised one. In most cases, such urbanisation is a source of unrest for me, as it renders life increasingly monotonous. When human and other species are under unfavourable circumstances , the only thing they can do is to change themselves to adapt to the new environment, for example, growing longer hairs to keep themselves warm, or choosing to degenerate some body parts to make themselves comfortable. Evolution or devolution, the nature of such changes cannot be easily judged. The changes maybe just fitting to rise to the occasion, something you can hold on to at the moment. And one can only realise full potential when one feels in one’s own elements.
