So far, I agree with all of the responses. What, imo, constitutes the little bits of the Creator (which we call souls) are not just of this Earth, but
of the universe itself. Everything
is included in the Creator, so how can what is on one rather insignificant dirtball be any more important
when compared to anything else in the entire mass of the universe?
I'd have to do some digging, but I remember reading somewhere that every atom in existence is 'aware' of every other. That's quite a concept. That
awareness is also reflected in humans when we talk about the Collective Unconscious. Nature shows the same abilities and manifest themselves in flocks
of sandpipers doing amazing 'group acrobatics' or the determined works of ant colonies. When we look, we see examples everywhere.
There is more to life than the obvious, of that I am sure.
Life on Earth is forever fluctuating, but, on the whole will attempt to balance itself. Now there are many more humans alive than history and the
fossil record shows. The animal kingdom suffers to make room. When we are culled (love that word
) , once again the animals will replenish
themselves. Nature ensures balance and won't abide imbalance.
If the planet were to be destroyed, the spirit which resides in all things will return to the Creator and be re-created in another portion of the
universe. Nothing is ever lost, and, much like energy, will only change. When the universe is finally destroyed, all of that energy will be re-created
in another universe.
This is a good thread, Icon_xof, and I look forward to the thoughts of others on this question.
I wonder what it would be like to be rock or water and conscious
? To see a world change over millions of years, either from the vantage
point of a mountain peak or the depths of the ocean. What would it be like to be a planet, slowly spinning through galaxies toward the final
destruction of a black hole only to re-appear instantly in another universe or plane?
Maybe we already can 'know' what such awareness is like, but just haven't come to realize it yet. If we ask ourselves, perhaps that which is the
Creator in us will let us know.
