Accidents and treasure everlasting

A key part of evolutionary theory is that 'accidents' underlie the evolutionary prospect, most especially as these interact with environments to increase (or reduce) the likelihood of successful reproduction: this is natural selection.

Tonight I'm listening to classical music. These deep works call to us from the depths and have power to bring glory to hell. We still know too little about creativity to understand how such works are produced, from whence they come. But they arise in our minds and resonate in the spirits of creatures whose bodies, minds, and souls are--at least at one level--not the result of a plan, divine or otherwise.

But the treasures we produce, the glories we discover, are everlasting.
