Have you ever wondered why a sparrow gets aroused only when seeing another sparrow and not a crow? In fact I don’t think a sparrow can recognize himself in a mirror. He does not know how he looks. No body showed him a mirror and said ” Hey! This is how you look honey!”
He does not know how ‘sparrows’ look like. But even then, he likes to mate only with another sparrow! Does n’t it sound incredible? (I know that some of you might think I am completely insane.. I don’t mind though! ;-))
Actually, this holds good for all animals except humans. They all mate with only the opposite sex of the same species – though most of them cannot recognize themselves in a mirror! But humans always like to break the laws – including the laws of nature!
I do enjoy wondering about such unbreakable laws of nature! I wonder how such things came. Who framed such rules? How were they programmed so accurately into everything? How Jasmine smells like Jasmine? How a cow produces only a cow-calf and not piglet?
Science has gone so far to be able to tell that there is such a rule inside the chromosome which instructs living beings to be as they are: Jasmine to smell Jasmine and cow to reproduce only a cow calf. It has discovered some equations which explain how things happen but it has not gone far enough to give explanation for ‘why such an equation came into place?’ or ‘On what basis was the equation created?’. Science has made only discoveries. It has not invented anything as such!
There are so many things to wonder like these. Take our own body.. How would it be if the eyes were placed somewhere at the bottom? How would it be if your nose is where your ears are now? What if there is no hair? How did such a thing came in place? Who’s engineering brain is that to create something with so much perfection? Human body is itself an incredible engineering! It would take many life times to understand what it is first of all – forget the why questions!
It is at these times, my reverence and love for nature overflows like a fountain! 🙂
