But... you said it yourself. If they don't belong with us or are part of us. We annihilate them.
We are the aliens. Just, almost only to ourselves that is..
Our everlasting search for these higher, older, alien ideas are the spark that drives us further on becoming our imagination.
I can imagine 20.000 miles under the sea was a spectacular read a century ago.
This will also explain the gaps in between the advancements of our societies and technologies. It seems we are unable to imagine something without
some sort of previous understanding or idea to build upon.
Even ancient scripture tells about us being able to make our imaginations reality, if we work together that is...
Our not so ancient ancestors remembered a catastrophic event. One big enough to wipe out the world as they know it. They also remember a time where
man was united before. Capable of realizing their imaginations.
There imaginations left them with a tower. But their world got corrupted. We have similar problems today. Our imaginations actually took us in the
heavens this time but it seems corruption will stop us again. Maybe next time the people have a short way to obtain the standards we know today and
they will add a next step to our evolution as a species.
What is there so unbelievable about a civilization before us that started the way up ?
It is only logical for us to start over completely the first few tries, others failed. Got them extinct even, or replaced by the next wave of what we
now identify as human.
A lot of natural events and happenings occur in some sort of repeating or circular movement. I think this is also a factor in our development as a
species, as a society, from generation to generation. We still make the same mistakes our parents did. How many times do we need to repeat this circle
and finally pass it behind us. ?
Our technology is what binds us and keeps us from falling to far back. Just like agriculture never was forgotten...
It is intriguing to observe this phenomena in reverse.
When couples get old and unable to participate in life as they used to. Their world narrows down and at the very end it happens that they only
complain about everything available to complain about. Making a problem of things they would never even have noticed a decade before. The thing is...
It is all they have left. Some like it others not and some never even realize it occurring to them as well.
Continuously circling the same over and over again until we learn and grow or fail and start again a few steps back on track.
With all are limitless knowledge and understanding about stuff we know so little of... We keep telling ourselves we know it all or a lot or more then
Still we have not learned to understand. It seems we are not ready yet to advance.
But... ! What do I know... :p
Sorry about the whole sharing my thoughts part, but I thought it was relevant for some to, learn, think, seed some perception. Well, mine that is
