I think the reason why you are not the first nor the last to ask "What Are We?", is because we think of ourselves as "One". We are not. We are separate, and can grow into groups, but we can't make a connection that just isn't there. We are born alone, even though sometimes at the same time as another, but that does not connect us.

We form as individual's, we have to be taught on who to be until a certain age, and then we develop our own way. We can be "one" in discussion, agreements/disagreements, good times and bad, love and hate, but if we were to make ourselves "one" then would we not also take the responsibility of the actions of another?

Believe in yourself, your actions, and how you feel about your surroundings and choices, we cannot all do as you do, but can care for one another, and be there. Just my opinion.

Peace, NRE.

No one can say they haven't done one of these things. We talk about peace and love and freedom, but we all live in fear. so back to the question.

Nietzsche wrote "God is dead".

God died in the 20th century and man died in the 21st century.

Man thought he would be free if there were no God...
...but free to what?
...and now who is man?

It is now thought that man invented God and now man does not know who he is.

To be blunt, we are here out of plain dumb luck..

Evolution....

One Asteroid or comet could have changes that as it did with the Dinosaurs, it may still change it.

From a religious stand-point i say no comment because as one race we have to many different idea's on how things should be. It leads to conflicts, arguments and even wars.

I would like to think we are here for more than to occupy this planet and cause it damage. I would love to see the day that all changes..

But i understand part of your statement... i think. Wha the hell are we doing day after day.

We goto work to make others rich, get into debt to make banks and creditors richer, loan after loan, interest ontop of interest.

Tax's, Capitalism, Wars, Conflict, Protest and so much more crap.

What are we doing? I think history it's in our nature to be explorers but now with the world basically conquered in that regard our space exploration is slow to say the least...

We are stagnating and something has to happen to give us a swift boot up the rear end and get us on the right track.

while we are capable of those bad things we are also capable of giving and love....don't forget that aspect of human nature...

Well, what exactly is implied by "we"? Do you mean humans? Do you assume everyone you think is human is? Do you think that I am human? Well, what am I? If I am human, then your question is not answered, as I am what is assumed. If I am not human then your question does not apply to me, and so your question is still not answered.

Ask better questions, and you will receive better responses, earthling.

Some of us are aliens in spirit yet native in flesh, others are both native in flesh and spirit.
It's part of the reason there's differences and conflict. The other 1/3 are the negative entity's that live here. Watch out for them, some are good, some are really bad...

Genetically engineered hybrids, some of us have souls of the original "Neanderthals", some of us have human souls, and the rest of us are basically just derranged mutants with an incredibly advanced behavioural control system in place... And some of us, lets just say, have far more ancient souls.... I'll put it this way - Many people are the normal human, and "we" are the Ape-hybrids, with a hint of lizard. Choose your natural side, and resist the artificial, my friend.

Also of God Nietzsche said "we killed him!"

It can mean many things. Religiously, morally, metaphysically, philosophically, scientifically.

There's infinite ways to kill in the omnipresent. Nietzsche shows us many such deep realities.

What are we...
Seekers of knowledge? Nietzsche speaks highly of these men. It's perhaps part of our task to be these seekers. But Nietzsche is easier read than discussed, and he wrote provocatively for the fact that he was, as he had prophetically noted, dynamite.

Maybe we're unique matter, assembled more mysteriously than any alien technology could predict.

We are, in any case, becoming who we are. Nietzsche said that, maybe under the influence of Heraclitus, and in a different context of course. It applies to a broad set of principles.

you are very right... we war over anything, the land, money, resources, and most of all religion... the cause of the most major wars in human history... we all want to be in control, and there are those with 'god complex' which is just sad... no one is perfect, and humanity is ultimately flawed, thousands of years of evolution, are we better than when it started? highly doubtful, now we harness weapons that could easily remove this planet from existence, ever seen hitchhiker's guide? yeah, the beginning, when the vogons decimate the earth? except we don't need the vogons, we've got our brothers and sisters to do that, with the push of a button... sad times, humanity is crumbling

Yeah well you'd be too if you'd realize we're tumbling on a rock at high velocity through the galaxy around a freaking hot globe of gases! j/k

Every second any human being is just a step away from death which can come at any time in millions of ways, most of the times completely unexpected. That we don't commit mass suicide despite this says something about us.


so back to the question. What are WE. --- WE ARE DEFECTIVE. hope you like my first thread. thank you.

We're not defective; that would mean we would be complete which humanity is not. Until we are we'll always be incomplete beings, some mistakingly believing we are complete. Humanity is just not finished, it hasn't grown up yet, not matured.
