Here is a fact:
If you were alive 200 million years ago you would have
been a dinosaur and not for a day but for about 140 million
years while they ruled the Earth.
Can you imagine being a dinosaur for 140 million years.
That is the Reality we exist in.
There were no people back then.
We are the descendants of the dinosaurs.
Doesnt that blow your mind?
No, it doesnt.
if youre a dog, you dont know youre a dog.
If youre an insect, you do not know
if your a cricket, you dont know
nor a tree, or any other creature.
Of course there a verying degrees of intelligences distributed amongst the animal and vegetable kingdoms, probably with apes, dogs, amongst the most
emotionally evolved, but emotion, is not the same as cognition. Cognition necessitates self consciousness, which no creatures other than human beings
possess. Thus, you would be unconsciously, a dog. You would definitely be alvie, except the question of being alive wouldfnt matter, what would matter
to you are the basic behavioral traits unqiue to your species. So, if i was a dinosaur, id probably think like a dinosaur, which wouldnt be anymore
interesting to me than being a dung beattle. Both are equally 'unconscious' of their own existence, and so the question is moot.
As for humans being 'the descendants' of dinosaurs.
Um, no i do not subscribe to that insanity. Its much more likely to me that humans come from a different galaxy, as opposed to being descended from
dinosaurs, as evolution surmises (being, a theory, and not a fact. Various people have objected to evolition on very good grounds. Im not completely
against it, though i do think if it is true its connected to a parralel spiritual evolution responsible for what we call evolution on the physical
level). And in the end of the day, what wer dinosaurs descended from, and before that, and before that? and than you arrive at the prime cause, the
ineffable infinite light, responsible for all of existence and reality. Dinosaurs even if they are a physical in between are not any more relevant
than the belief that man are 'apes'. To me, theres hardly a difference between an animal ape and dinosaur. They are both completely unconscious.
Think about the drastically different experience of reality, humans have, and what dinosaurs and apes have. You have apes today, and dinosaurs
millions of years ago. And us, just 5771 years ago, developing civilization, technology, going into space.
We are clearly two different classes of creature, only resembling in a physical sense and not a spiritual sense. The difference is as enormous as any
quantum leap. An area is not a line, but more than a line. A line doesnt produce anything very interesting, besides 1 pount here and 1 point there. An
area is a drastically different dimension of existence. The above analogy is cognate to the difference between humans and animals. Animals are a line.
I see something my instincts desire, and i go for it. Humans are an area, i see something, than i THINK about that said thing, and than i act. Like an
area - a 3 dimensional reality. Dinosaurs and and all animals, despite being millions of years apart, are of the line - 2 dimensional reality group,
whereas Humans are 3rd dimensional, an 'area', and we have just become relevant in a 'time' sense, just 5771 years ago, with the beginnings of
civilization at Sumer.
So.. It would be pretty crazy if this idea ended up being true. It would change our understanding reality drastically. Spiritual, abstract dimensions
projecting into this world as physical objects. Time is one mysterious mofo.
