When does a species become invasive and when should a race be kept uninfiltrated? Or is it the other way around, that our species become stronger and more tolerant when we mix things up to create a more colorful result?
I talked to a couple of horses today to hear their opinion. They have certain things in common. They are all coming from Europe and sturdy in their shape with a calm and stable temper, suitable for this environment up north. But they do belong to different races. They share power but have a tiff now and then. Most of all though, they eat the same food.
My favorite horse growing up was a mix breed between Welsh pony and Gotland Russ, which became a good combination of qualities, especially for children. Arabic horses may be very beautiful to look at, but everybody knows that they aren’t very cuddly and very nervous, whereas a Shetland pony can pull a cart through the darkest of caves loaded with coal, an Icelandic horse has its own trot and a Thoroughbred will without a doubt run faster than most other kinds of horses. Which purpose do we value most and for whom? Does it matter where we live? Or should we see these different competencies just as valuable for all of us?
Like with our food, what is chemically manipulated and forced together seldom becomes nothing but a stressed result lowering our immune system, while allowing natural migration according to curiosity and wellness, fulfilling our needs and ensuring a natural selection taking place will produce combinations that make us grow more resilient into a positive evolution, just like how the wind can carry a seed and decide where it should grow roots.
Mother Nature doesn’t move, but we can.
