Masters (Retroactive)

We are not our own masters, we’re not even close.  The reason we exist as I have said before is the need for smaller organisms to survive, in a harsh environment.  Imagine astronauts in a spacecraft heading to some planet in a future.  However, living in a spaceship is risky, its not natural, it doesn’t come in contact with nature, and if it breaks in the slightest bit the people inside are doomed.  So what’s more important than an organic spaceship, with the ability to be easily healed by those inside, and easily protected from other more harmful organisms that may bully you.  In your organic spaceship, the most necessary processes for the life of the ship and those living in it are the factories which process the food and necessities you seek from the outside.  If all conditions are right, the needs move beyond food, even with enough food, water and shelter, the organism may form its own sense of existence.

The selectiveness of things inside the spaceship and outside bond to seek something greater. Much like when you’re poor, all you can think about is where your next meal is coming from and survival.  When you move on you seek greater things, we seek greater things, and desire feelings which allows the motivation to continue to seek the basic necessities of survival.  What need need now is to know where these limits bring us.  Dinosaurs probably grew much too big, and required too many resources, but at the same time brain function and desires much too low.  The lack of intelligence did not help the species of dinosaurs survive major catastrophes and protect its passengers.

Humans however, are on to something.  To protect our passengers who clearly want to survive, unlike our Panda mammal buddies, we use our motivation to seek, to innovate, to create fear, to predict the utmost worst disasters that can happen, but at the same time risk our lives to make life easier.  We can debate, we can feel, but that’s because over millions of years, we’ve reached the evolutionary point, that the planet needed.  However, we are also at a point where we are harming our planet, forgetting our original goals of helping it and ourselves.  Wither our planet will keep us or not is up to us.  Wither we survive or the planet waits another million if not billions of years for another intelligent being to thrive and bring the life stream of Earth abroad is up to our evolution, our intelligence and our ability to survive for the sake of our masters.

Your non-disappearing existence

Wouldn’t it be great if after your death there remained no trace of your physical existence.  It would almost feel like you had never died.  Your physical works would remain, and in essence with the complete absence of bones and flesh, it would be like your so called soul would exist until your works vanished forever.

The fact our bones stick around forever, is the greatest proof that we’ve lived and died.  It’s a little painful to think about sometimes, sometimes I wish we could just disappear after death.  However, our biological routes and our extensions are all made up of our mother Earth and the resonance that developed within use during our experiences.

I guess we can always just think of our bones as minerals, like rocks, ashes and dust.

Why top down, why not bottoms up!

Many wise people believe in religion, because it gives people a piece of mind knowing that all their lives work and experience don’t go to waste at the end of their long lives.  Some religions believe in reincarnation, so that we can forego the vanity we all feel when we’re about to pass away.  Others choose to believe to live now, and change the lives of those around them, without worrying about the afterlife, karma, retribution, hell, or anything proven or unproven.  The fact is no matter what it is we all see ourselves as below a greater being or equal to the greater beings.  If that’s the way we see life, aren’t we purposely blinding ourselves to the other possibilities that may exist?  By not looking at any other lifeforms, or other animals like us, we’ve already subjugated ourselves to the belief that nothing from below can control our behaviour or what we are.  In fact, I feel that we work to satisfy those who don’t really know we exist as a conscious being.

Think about it this way, being a single celled organism, and being able to survive, thrive, by feeding off what’s around in a comfortable environment doesn’t really create a need for change.  However, once that food source of comfortable environment has moved on, it is up to the natural genetic make up of the creature to survive.  It survives by building itself a “ship” or a comfortable, safer environment where it can travel and find a source to feed itself and thrive.  Mold spores, pollen, winged ants, human space stations, and many other examples are some examples that are all similar.  Some methods are more organic, others reliant on the environment.  Humans aren’t the only creatures who use the environment to build themselves a way to move on, aquatic life use rocks, shells, insects use leaves, and wind.  Then you have to think.  What is using us?

A recent article about ants who are possessed by a type of jungle mold caught my attention, as well as another article about a virus in cats that can pass to humans.  The mold controls the ant, even in death to walk to the forest floor where it can flourish.  The kitty virus uses mice and makes them reckless so they can get caught and spread up the chain all the way to humans, making many cat owners, in theory, more reckless than dog owners.  We eat, we live, as other insects and animals do it for mother Earth, who sustains us, we pollute and hard this Earth.

Many animals who lose their values become extinct, unless they learn to live apart from the Earth.  Certain fungus’ can live without air, light or water, and if we abandon the Earth will we be the same or sterile?  Insects break down waste and allow plants to flourish, plants take in Carbon dioxide and turns it into air, which many insects and animals use to repeat the cycle allowing everything to live in harmony.  One creature keeps another in check to keep them from overpopulating and disrupting the cycle.  We seem to have many plans, but the most important one right now is to protect our Earth.  If we don’t then we have to flee.  The Earth out of balance will encapsulate itself in extreme weathers, ice, heat, high dust, or radioactivity.  It will eventually happen, even with we’re out of the picture.  Once this is in order then we will continue to focus on ourselves again.

So again, what is controlling us from below?  Our cellular make up, our organs, and everything thing about us is working in synergy to keep us alive, and once in a while cells will go Maverick and threaten our lives.  In most cases however, humans are able to adapt and survive.  We must survive to keep most of us alive.  Even the bacteria that lives with us needs to keep us alive to survive in our gut.  They’re comfortable, they’ve been comfortable for hundreds of thousands of years within our ancestry.  To keep us happy they will work to do their best to ensure proper function.  Once we’re happy, they’re happy.  If they’re unhappy, so are we.  We have the last say with modern technology, but since ancient times they’ve been the ones keeping our body in balance.  So if things are out of balance we die or suffer horribly, or in some cases adapt, and evolve.

One day we may evolve out of our dependence on our bodies ecosystem.  We may be more android, but in that sense, our biology will eventually fade out, and we’d be that Ghost in the machine, that makes it think about why its living, and who it is living for.  So I believe we’re not the driver’s, but the car in this world.  The ones that drive us are well hidden within us.  They may make up what many believe to be a “soul” but in essence its not different than us and animals managing the Earth.  Will we one day evolve to become the driver’s or the souls or something else?  For now, we’ll follow the instincts that so many believe to be free will.  However, we’re still a bird in a cage.
