When someone says to me ... that I am out there or different or have a unique way of looking at "stuff" I know I am making progress as a human being.
I often feel I am surrounded by zombies repetitively going through the motions of life. Politics reminds me very much of how ignorant we all are. I also am a zombie .. yet I am not limited to just that role and nor are you.
I look at my life and OUR lives as human beings and I personally completely understand how inferior we are to nature. Both as parts and as a whole, humanity is an enigma.
WE humans are so caught up in the race to avoid death that we forget how to live, and even worse we do not understand the value of life.
Not our lives .. but all life.
Organisms that are not self aware as we humans are ... are genetically grounded on instincts.
WE humans are fixated on ourselves.
Imagination and fact are melded in our thought processes.
We invent roles for every single human being and we all play numerous roles simultaneously.
The concept of post-humanism therefore is naturally appealing and intriguing to me
How would I evolve given the knowledge and time to do so?
OUR mind allows us to simulate the future in many respects ... we call it imagination .. but I've always believe that what we can imagine is possible and can be conceived.
I believe life surrounds us .. not our house or our nation or our planet ... but the universe is full of life that surrounds us.
Proximity of other life forms is not a limiting factor and given our crude measurements as human beings my belief is founded in OUR scientific knowledge as of today.
One can also extrapolate that superior life forms exist.
Yet we are far sighted and cannot see the superior life forms that surround us and that have lived far longer as species than we humans have thus far.
Instead of learning from that life which long preceded humanity and exists today .. we are destroying it.
WE humans are the product of the very thing we are destroying. Nature.
Reinventing yourself is simple. It is a state of mind. It is a state of consciousness and self-awareness.
The beauty of being human is the ability to enjoy ourselves ... and each other.
Yet instead of benefiting from that ability we destroy one another instead.
Humanity can never be any better than the least capable among us.
When we ALL rise we will make progress.
