The Origin Of Mind

The mind is both, internally and externally driven. In the past, we were able to live with our clan-like families and be one with nature. This grew our minds and caused the evolution of more mindful humans. Clans were developing together and passing on experiences to the next generations. In tribes, everybody was diverting to the median to stay as one. There was slower, yet shared progress. With individualism, the differences between the variety of humans became obvious. Some advanced more while others were lagging behind. The mind was getting internalized as mindful bonds between nature and individuals were diminishing.
