Children are the Beginning of Our Future: Love determines coincidence- Part 2

In the previous article, I spoke about how various personalities make up the human society and about how the diversity of personalities and abilities, both varies for each individual.

These children, with vast differences in individual personalities, are the very citizens who will grow up to form the future society and support it in many ways. No matter what happens, there are always people who will be able to survive through all of the diversity. It is for this purpose, that diversity is so important. In addition, I believe that it is the amazing strength of the human race where those with strong abilities and weak abilities can come together and construct a culture or a civilization. The incredible highlight of the human race seems to be that those who are ill, those who are hurting or even those who are born with physical or emotional challenges can come together by helping each other.

The genes of many mothers and fathers have been passed on throughout history and have contributed to the evolution of mankind. In turn, each of these genes has contributed to the heterogeneity of each person. Of course, there is even the possibility that the same gene is existing in people who have no relation to each other at all.

It is important to remember that genes are always being combined and re-combined to develop new combinations of the gene. These heterogeneous genes become tangled with the biological information that provides the basis for the diversity of human beings. Eventually, the children's personalities are formed and each child begins to show the uniqueness of their own characteristics (note 1).

Each child grows up to become an individual who has varied abilities by fostering the genes given to him/her by his/her parents and ancestors. They have a very big responsibility of passing their own genes and their culture onto their offspring and creating a new culture for the next generation.

The power to make culture and pass it on to the next generation is based on the biological strength of people. This is made possible by the information contained in the molecule called deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), genes and chromosomes (note 2).

Each couple makes different combinations of genes through their love, and that combination can only be made for those two particular people. Through this interesting characteristic of "love", unique to humans, people choose to ultimately get married after nurturing their feelings for each other.

Love is a feeling that only humans can experience. The emotional beauty and preciousness of life, burning in one's heart, has been depicted in many ways through literature, music and art. Love gives each party involved, the energy, to mutually overcome difficult challenges that may lead to greater love.

The emotions associated with love may be unique to the human race where sophisticated emotional processes are involved in selecting a partner. This process of generating new genes and combining genes seems to be a necessity for fostering culture and bringing about fresh changes to that culture.

(Note 1) Phenotypes, such as appearance, abilities, personalities, and other morphological and physiological characteristics, are originally the guideline for biological classification. Since Mendel's theory of heredity, we refer to phenotypes as the expression of the genetic process.

(Note 2) I refer here to the diffusion of DNA. It accounts for the most part of biological heredity.
