What if, a long time ago the race of men and women existed outside of Earth? According to the habitable zone, Venus, Earth, and Mars all fall under that category within our Solar System. Well, at least at one point in time, I’m sure. Considering that we are just a tiny particle within this vast Universe, time for us moves a lot slower. Like, really slow. We’ve only been around for about 6 million years (according to my bing search (don’t judge)), and the Universe has now existed for over 13 billion years. If you’re familiar with the book Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, by the author John Gray, he writes about how communication and how we are emotionally between men and women are as if we were from different planets. So, let’s take things in a more literal way. What if men were from Mars, and women were from Venus…? Let’s find out!
Have you never wondered why women are typically colder than men? Maybe it goes back to Venus, since it’s much closer to the Sun. Sometime millions or billions of years ago Venus was habitable (just like Mars). Women ruled that world and men didn’t even exist to them. And because the average temperature was much higher than here on Earth, women didn’t have to deal with cold weather. But now because of evolution of time, Venus can no longer obtain life that we know of. But what caused the second planet in our solar system to no longer be habitable, is beyond me.
Then there were men. Who once lived on Mars way back when. Back when Mars’ gravitational pull was much stronger and had a thicker atmosphere. And being that Mars was much further away from the Sun than Venus, men could survive in colder weather. I cannot say the same for women (because I don’t know), but maybe male ego was the reason why Mars lost its’ gravitational pull and atmosphere. Why we can hardly agree on anything, thus leading to a potential nuclear war (at least Mars’ version of a nuke). And just like that, there goes the neighborhood.
However, we can say that there are incredibly intelligent people among men and women that the one’s that made it out of Venus and Mars, found Earth. As in they Christopher Columbus’d space, which led us to where we are today. Men and women together, still figuring each other out. Which is unfortunate, because I thought by now we wouldn’t be discriminating each other based on gender, and not just for that matter. But the color of our skin and how we look. It is sad that we judge one another based on just what we are. It doesn’t define who we are. Every person within this world is unique in their own ways. Just have to listen and learn from each other. Greatness starts with you.
