250,000,000 years. That's where the stories in this book come from.
Imagining our ancient ancestors during their unthinkably long evolutionary trek through millions of years to get to the present — and what may be happening to our present civilization.
Let this book be a treat for you.
Evo, the fictional entity, was there.
Evo, the book, is composed of information and stories based on archaeological finds and imagination.
This book is about your heritage. And your destiny.
Early in the book, you'll find this idea: Modern-day humans — you and your family and your friends, the people you know and interact with — did not evolve from apes. But you and apes both have the same remote mother.
Evo, the book, is based on archaeological findings, beginning way back in time and ending on the day you open the book to read it.
Evo (the entity) will tell you stories about the pre-humans of early days as they evolved through that horrendously huge amount of time — the luck, the correct decisions, the persistence — to end up with the you that you are.
So, yes, this book is about your heritage.
And, yes, as you'll find out, it is about your destiny.
Evo was there. Evo is here, now — perhaps looking over your shoulder to see what decision you will make after reading this book.
Pick up the book and read about:
The first laugh.
What happened to the primitive evolving civilization of your ancestors when flint was discovered.
How do the actions of ants remind a child of the hit-or-miss changes of evolution?
Read. Find out. Discover lots more.
In essence, evolution is change. It has no intelligence and no consciousness — it is not an entity. Evolution is mindless.
Environmental changes, or changes in survival requirements, precipitate "devolution". Aspects of biological entities atrophy when no longer needed or used.
Evo talks about that.
Your ancient biological history is here, beginning before your ancestral family split (with the other side of the split evolving into the apes.)
Your future is alluded to.
You see, there is another family split in progress. It is well along. People are actively aligning themselves with one side of the split or the other.
Evo describes a way to make it more likely that you and your descendents will, in fact, end up with the side you prefer.
