Dedicated to Charles Darwin

 

 We see Charles (D)arwin, with a monkey’s face, drawing himself as he looks out of a television screen. In this way, he effectively brings himself into being as a reflection of independent and self-sustaining evolution, which produced humans from hominids.

He thereby draws attention to himself and his ideas !

(Sometimes, we might question how far we really have evolved when television - and now social media - have become principal pastimes and means of communication for our species.)

The title welcomes reflection on the notions of creationism and intelligent design, both of which oppose Darwin’s theory.
