This post started with much sarcasm, cynicism and angst but has since been edited for your reading pleasure; enjoy.
This is not a new idea or concept, hardly anything is new when it comes on to thoughts, perceptions, projections, it’s all a regurgitated cycle of brain farts. What is new however is you and that is the point of this post, you are unique. Your uniqueness is as an ongoing process of a long chain of events leading up to this and continuing from this moment. Scientists have spent millennia figuring out the wonders of the world (various sciences and models). All of this is trumped by human nature, we are the most destructive force on the planet without a doubt, probably the
only species that would willingly wipe itself out.
Which brings me to my point, you ain’t shit. I haven’t studied psychology or sociology or *insert whatever you think is relevant here*, however I know selfishness makes us feel better. Right? You think that despite everything, I am a person too, I have needs, I am a person. I don’t know why we think that because we have a perceived state of consciousness that we must be special. Let’s not even
go into the aspects of religion or “personal development” lessons that also give us a false sense of being unique.
So why in heaven’s name should one be selfish? We have this innate need to be selfish, to be self indulgent, to express free will and do what you want. Yet we are small organisms feeding on a small planet in a small solar system in a small galaxy as part of an infinite and ever growing universe. Let that soak in. Seems kinda crazy to me.
The next time anything happens just remember it is really of no consequence whatsoever.
This is all meaningless because humans were never meant to be alone. It’s why we have families, communities, towns, cities, regions, countries. Humans are nothing without each other. Yet we all strive to be independent of each other. The fact is we are all very much acheter viagra dependent on each other and this selfishness is driving us all to extinction. If we don’t die as a species the definition of being human, the heightened state of consciousness is being lost. We are led by companies instead of leaders, we subscribe to media that satisfies perceptions vs. what is real, we are consumed with ourselves versus seeking true enlightenment.
I want to compare it to encryption. We each have public and private keys that we can use to make our unique mark, we all have to play a part to unlock the chain of life. Because life isn’t about existing, life is about actually living, enjoying, sharing, helping, improving. But destroy your key or keep it to yourself and we will never know what could have been. You ain’t shit.
