From Insect to Human and Beyond
Going from "This is me and I am in this." to "I am this and this is in me"
EVOLUTION OF CONSCIOUSNESS
If you examine the hierarchy of intelligent life, you can see that progression of intelligence equals progression of forms of awareness.
Insects generally operate as a hive mind. They all work for a common cause to help perpetuate their community. Dogs and cats are not aware of
themselves as being separate from their environment, yet they generally work for themselves or their immediate family for their survival. Humans are
aware of themselves as being separate from their environment and they work for themselves or for their immediate family for their survival. Humans
also have the ability to work for things other than survival.
If nature is telling us something it is that higher intellignece means higher sentience and the higher the sentience, the more diverse and creative
the fruits of their labors become. I think the point of it all is to demonstrate how various forms of awareness allow for higher levels of creative
work. Basically, this implies that we are becoming Creator Gods.
If there is another step in intelligent evolution to where we gain another level of awareness, logic tells us that sentience and indivdual awareness
is the ultimate goal. So how could we become any more sentient than we already are? Because we are becoming THE one. Are we aware of ourselves as
being THE one? No, but if the progression towards sentience tells us anything, it is telling us that any further progression in sentience amounts to
that. So how would it be possible for us to be THE one? Well, I would literally have to be you and you would literally have to be me.
Notice how the Bible says we fell from grace. We fell from the collective, hive-mind awareness of the insect towards the sentient awareness of the
human. The next step in evolution is an inversion. We fell from a collective mind towards sentience and now we are headed back to a collective mind.
Except this time, our awareness is not going to be the insect awareness of 'this is me and I am in this', it is going to be the Creator God awareness
of 'I am this and this is in me'. We are becoming more sentient, but with this sentience is also a collective awareness. We are becoming God.
so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
1 Corinthians 12:12
Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:27
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his
body, which is the church.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

We were created AND we evolve.
