On Awareness

From lactose incompetent:

Homo Sapiens Sapiens, the scientific name for the human species, translates roughly as “we’re aware that we’re aware”. We understand the concept of time, of past and future, but I wonder if that’s really an advantage and not some sort of evolutionary fluke, a defect in our intelligence. It deprives us of so much joy in life, the ability to live in the now because we’re analyzing and replaying the past and worrying about the future.
