Before i begin i can not identify where this belongs. So i am putting it up for discussion here.
And i do not think i am the only person who has said this either.
But this thought... this saying... and how i keep coming to it just terrifies me the most.
If you think about your eye sight for a moment.... try to imagine how the eye was created.... how it evolved.... how does life know and understand
light if you can not see it to begin with....
It is this very basic seed that i put into my own mind... that question.... how did life forms understand, and figure out how to perceive light
entering an eye. How did it know what to create? We can see several millions of different species here on earth possess eyes. And each of these animal
have different setups for eye sight. But it is at that very core... how did the eye come to be?
But this isn't the most terrifying thought. Now think about the amount of time spent completely alone on this planet. And with everything that exists
in the cosmos.... how did everything get to where it is? Out in space there exists an infinite amount of planets and.... well matter.
I don't think this planet of "life" being alone in space is the scariest thought either. But somehow it contributes.
Now try to imagine what technology will be like, not just hundreds or thousands of years later... think of what technology could achieve millions of
years from now. For me, it is finally being able to connect an electronic device to the nerves in our eyes.
This is where the scariest thought began to consume my mind. That seed i planted in earlier began to grow. And what sprout from it was something that
bewildered my mind....
And it is not technology taking over, and enslaving humanity.... but rather.... our next evolutionary turn, or path.... would have us become more
Part of the thought is knowing that existence is meaningless.
And the other part is knowing that our entire body, and all of it's different molecules, doesn't want to die.
But it is that jump in evolution, where a great risk has to be taken in order to advance our life form, is where this thought has its root burried in
It reaches so far into my mind that it causes the sensation of fear and relentless anxiety to push forward, while at the same time something is
What would we become if a human body began to understand how our created technology works and evolved itself to create something new? Where as our
minds could be better at remembering almost every single day of our existence, but at the same time continued to exist indefinitely? What if we could
unlock and decode evolutionary mutations? And what if these new mutations that we created... lead to extinction? Where as the entire human race
mutated into a new life form millions of years from now.... and it ultimately lead us down a path where we could no longer survive?
Like a cell phone without a charger.... waiting to die? Or couldn't charge. Or for what ever reason.... just stopped without any warning sign? No
hacker virus... it wasn't dropped. And certainly was not a brain aneurysm of any sort, nor was it attacked.... just.... even if our evolved state ate,
or consumed energy it just didn't work what so ever. And everything stopped.
What if we are actually procreating inferior mutations as a whole? What if everything on this planet is begining to revert backwards.
And the scariest thought that comes to mind.... quickly leaves as soon as it enters.... like a needle hitting the back of your head and quickly
What if we are truly running out of time on this planet, with no where to go to continue existing?
It is hard to explain the thought in words.... but thaat is where it strikes me.... i can't word it correctly but the thought is there... and every
time i try to recall everything that lead me to the thought... as soon as the thought is remembered... it dissappears....
