I’ve discovered a very critical gap in human advancement (I’m not referring to the missing link; and please note – when i speak about ‘natural selection’ I am including non-biological inheritance as well; such as perfecting technological processes over time etc. based on existing knowledge and applications/studies of former generations uses of those technologies, sciences and medical practices).
The Natural Selection Gap is inherent (it seems) in all of us. Again; I apologize if I offend anyone with what may be perceived as ‘human bashing’, and of course, these findings are based purely on my own observations (over the years) and opinions.
Part 1: The Clone Wars – Awaiting Order 66
Have you ever just looked at people? The way they behave, the way they speak to other people; have you ever just sat back and observed? I’m an observer. I often find myself on autopilot just analyzing other people from afar.
I struggle to understand what level people are operating on, because many (most) people have very little to no depth to who they are. Many people are the same. They behave the same, they’re complacent the same, and they’re the same kind of boring – which is VERY boring! Even when i meet newpeople; I expect them to be the same (I secretly hope they’re not, but they usually are).
It has been a rare (and treasured) occurrence for me, when i have met people who are truly different – these encounters are special in a way that is deeply moving; especially when you’re expecting that everyone is going to turn out to be the ‘same’. This rant is necessary, because only people who think and behave differently will be successful contributors in helping to close the gap between the orange and blue lines (pictured above).
Part 2: Titan AE – Get the Space Arks Ready
So, as you may or may not know, we are currently going through our 6th mass extinction. Apparently, if this downward trend continues; humans will be one of the first species to perish when a new order of trophic cascade is established – unless we can somehow evolve into extremophiles.
Convincing the vast majority that the environment is just as important as the economy seems to be a bridge too far. So, how about this ultimatum: ask the aliens to intervene in human advancement, to ensure positive progression.
I don’t care whether you’re religious or not, but we have to acknowledge that there are greater powers at work in the Universe. Sometimes things exist and happen to us that we just cannot explain – let alone emulate. I believe in the Universal memory, or Universal consciousness. By this I mean; I believe I can tap into memories of past beings (through dreaming); and have visions of other real worlds and beings existing now (through my ‘imagination’ or getting ‘inspiration’). We are not alone; the Universe sees and knows everything.
Let’s be honest; we cannot recreate life (once it is lost), or if we can (cloning/stem cell transplants etc.) – we cannot recreate it to nearly the same perfection as it has been bequeathed to us by a higher power. We need to shift our morals and values to ensure that the degradation of the environment stops. We can be a lesser deity in preserving nature, rather than a greater monster in destroying it.
Part 3: The Matrix is Real – Unplug
Heard this all before have you? They call it déjà vu – it’s a glitch in the Matrix; and that’s exactly where you’re living; in the Matrix.
The world has evolved in such a way that it has created a trap for the timeline of your life/existence – even before you’re born. You will go through a predetermined sequence of events that the majority of humans face (school, university, a job that takes up all your time which you probably hate) – I would liken this to an ant or a bee; continuing in a pre-programmed fashion for the benefit of only a select ‘privileged’ minority. Welcome to modern day slavery.
Obviously; it is near impossible to change the way the global economy has evolved, and because humans are largely a product of their environment; it would be very difficult to expect the majority of people to shift their morals and values in any direction. I am bold enough to say that I feel this complacency of continuing to live in ‘the Matrix’ is bred out of fear. People will most certainly complain about the Matrix they live in; but they will never implement any pro-active change. Most humans want their security and comfort; and by going against the grain and living outside the margins of established acceptable society; they are afraid of losing something (I’m not sure what, because by living in the Matrix – allowing pre-programmed established society to control you – you have already lost yourself).
Part 4: Skynet – Sinister Intelligence
The nucleus of who we are, and everything we’re working towards; starts with simple morals and values.
It is unfortunate to say; that a lot of people in the world lack these basic building blocks. And no; a lack of education etc. is not a limiting factor of being able to showcase good manners and respect. In certain cases it can be quite the opposite; where someone with a successful title and privileged background gets transported to such a level of haughtiness; they think these basic values and morals are beneath them.
We cannot hope to achieve positive progression as a species if we keep ignoring these basics (which, if employed correctly, should allow us to evolve into the superior beings that we’re capable of becoming). Sure, you probably argue that we already are superior beings, because we are smarter than all other species on the planet. Don’t forget, humans are also smarter at being evil.
I was watching the news one night; and I said to my dad, “It seems that people are the cause of most of the problems in our world…”
My father sat forward on the couch; nodded contemplatively and replied, “Yes, but it is also people who will solve those problems…”
Let’s close the gap!
