Who, my friends, is superior to Death?
Only the Gods live forever under the Sun.
As for Mankind, numbered are their days;
Whatever they achieve is but the Wind!"
If you are searching for whatever actual proof which does exist of our vast intelligence, I recommend a book entitled 'Ancient Inventions: by Peter James & Nick Thorpe; 1994, Ballantine Books'. A short quote from this thick volume puts things rather simply; "– there is no evidence that the human brain has evolved at all in the last fifty thousand years at least. Modern people are merely benefiting from thousands of years of accumulated knowledge and experimentation, not from increased intellect." Sheesh... I could not have said it better, thank you gentlemen.
Therefore it is not what one actually thinks up, but is instead what one remembers from some long ago, forgot time. We, as human beings, are simply meant to be the caretakers of this big blue marble of diverse life, not its exploiters and rapists. Yet there are sadly so many who would ridicule this simplistic fact, prefering to madly run around with thoughts of the sky falling on their heads due, in large part, to the greed of a few as they themselves also dip into the same explosive cookie jar as those they oppose.
We must admit to ourselves that there are more energies on this planetary body than what the common folk wants to realize and acknowledge. There is no destined World Destruction because of this honest fact. However, we are closing in on ourselves through reproduction with nowhere to expand without hurting Mother Gaia, although each extinction of a species is sickly thought of as a form of expansion. It is slowly being realized by more and more peoples in this day simply because of the Age of Communication and Enlightenment. We must continue to become one with not only our Self's but also with our own surroundings and eradicate the hate and stupidity, as well as illiteracy and hunger, not extinguish the diverse energies of life which are all too fast becoming faded memories. It is not impossible nor is it out of reach, each one of us does make a difference.
We are finally beginning to progress in world recycling, nuclear dis-armament, in world military police (thanx Sadam), planetary exploration instead of exploitation, environmental awareness,.... In what other areas can you think of which needs positive thought and energy? There are still quite a few, how about world polution, higher education- particularly in the United States, hunger in Africa and elsewhere, or peace in the Middle East, perchance freedom of religion in Northern Ireland, the Serbian Conflict… Sound to good to be Tru? If so, you're one who is holding the rest of us back for "-if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Get with the program, whilst retaining your seperate individuality" An unknown quote that I feel sums this paper up quite nicely.
