Time itself brings to light the essence of things
Maybe evolution is due to an ongoing search that we are condemned to do. We are lost and seek, we seek to find something but do not know exactly why. And in this path where we travel from birth until we die, there is always someone with us, sometimes imperseptible accompanying us.
