Modern migration and intermingling of races and cultures has trashed ancestry.
The world has become a mishmash, a hotch potch
as cultures and languages fuse, blend and meld.
Knowing your origin and roots now means very little now
as what was there before, your origins and ancestry, have long gone.
It is so sad to see your old home renovated, or worse demolished.
In Queensland, Australia, many of the old wooden Queenslanders
get transported and sold off in old home parks.
There they are aligned in rows in a plot in park, for sale,
ancestral homes rid of memories and context.
If you are very smart you can trace where your old Queenslander went.
You can go on a trip and see it lobbed into its new address.
Very disturbing, to see your home transported and in foreign hands and lands,
But that is all that is left to do, to trace and refresh your memories.
We expect the past to be just the same as it used to be
like a photograph we expect our ancestry to be frozen in time.
But time marches on trashing the past, insensitive to how we want it to be.
Isolation is what help cultures develop their unique identity
In Australia, there were about 600 different clan groups or 'nations'
around the continent when Europeans arrived, many with distinctive cultures and beliefs.
Most have now gone, now there are fewer than 60,
many, many languages and cultures now lost, forever.
Modern mobility and movement of people means that no new cultures can develop in isolation.
In the past the isolation allowed two human cousin species to co-exist with Homo sapiens in ancient time.
Homo naledi lived in isolated pockets in Africa.
Homo floresiensis lived isolation on the island of Flores in Indonesia.
Now that would be something,
to trace your ancestry back to one of these ancient species.
Humans have stopped evolving through inherited variations
both physically and culturally.
Ancestry is now an endangered species, fossilized.
