First, I would like to thank the contributors to this thread for being so honest and gracious in their contributions. The subject in itself as stated
by kushin about the average Joe, is quite the truth. And, I might add, the result of organized institutions influences throughout the history of
mankind. For my own personal viewpoint, I feel today's institutes are not instituted to liberate the mind but rather to control it, hence my deep
rooted iconoclastic view point.
The reason I chose to place this thread in "Origins & Creation" forum is because I am one of those who truly believe humanity is actually a duality.
Not quite completely a human animal and not quite a divine spirit, but a wonderful, exciting, diverse, imaginative, and creative oddity when compared
to other known life forms present on this planet. And at the same time we display something not present in the animal kingdom, that of choice. In
its basic form, we above all the other animals, can choose how to act in any given situation. We can choose to follow our animal instincts, or we
can choose to act like civilized human beings. We even have the choice to lay our own life down so that others might live. If you take the time and
look at the world in its entirety, you might come to the conclusion that it is humanity itself that is the real "alien".
As I see it, there are two great frontiers ahead of us, and both will lead back to the origin, our origins. One is the long way that will take eons
to complete while the other might be called a short cut, or as Todo in the movie "wizard of oz" discovered, only takes a pull at the curtain to
reveal the hidden truth. You got to love Todo
Walk in's, where do they come from, who are they, what do they want? Lets keep the game interesting!
Can anyone offer some input?
