Hello OneHuman! Awesome thread you have here!
I saw a couple replies, commenting on how we have no idea what we have here on our home planet.
I have to agree totally. We have no idea all the diversity and depth we have right outside our doors and, in many cases, inside our homes too.
We have all seen articles, threads authored, and even asked ourselves what might aliens look like? Would they be intelligent, would they be bi-pedal?
Could they communicate with us in a way we would understand, would they be violent, peaceful, technologically advanced, or primitive to our standards?
To answer those questions, we need only look into the vast assortment of life, created by Mother Nature and nourished by Mother Earth.
There was a good thread recently on ATS that posed a challenge to humanity. The author of that thread suggested we should understand and develop our
compassion and use it to see through the eye's of others. Not only through the eyes of other humans, but through the eyes and consciousness of all
identifiable life forms.
Using compassion this way suggested we may be able to understand the characteristics and actions of other life forms, in a way we have yet to
We do not need to develop super high technology transportation or fantasize about other life in the cosmos, because we can see creatures that are
absolutely alien to our way of thinking each and every time we step out into nature.
I believe there is something connecting us humans to all the other life forms on Earth - not just animal life, but also plant life as well - and
allowing us to sense the emotional state of mind each being of life is currently in.
Although we can not engage in verbal or visual communications with other life forms here, we can most certainly understand their body language and
actions they display through their instincts.
This communication allows us to sense assess the threat level of the confrontation, react appropriately to ensure our safety, within a matter of
seconds. Although this 'inter-species' language can be agreed on as a fact of reality, could there be a deeper communication taking place that we
have yet to identify?
Could there even be a more intelligible form of communication used by different species in the wild, one that we as humans can not detect? I think it
is most definitely a possibility.
I have developed my own opinion on what the bond of communication, tying all living creatures together, consists of.
My idea/opinion is that Love is an emotion experienced by all life on Earth, though it may be demonstrated in vastly different ways from one species
to the next, and it is Love that bonds us together.
When you are loved by someone, you feel the love they give you. When you love someone, they can feel it as well. When you truly are in love with
someone, there is no doubt of an incredibly dominant emotion that is felt when the object of your love in thought of. In many cases of those who are
In Love with someone else, it is hard to identify a period of time where your loved one doesn't infiltrate every single thought you have.
I believe when Love is given to one person and the person receiving the Love reciprocates the feeling, they establish a line of communication, based
entirely on the Love they share. Identifying their traits and personality, coupled with Love, allows for an incredible connection with a much higher
standard of communication than a pair of people who are not in love
We can sense when our loved ones are sick, happy, sad, mad, etc - when we can not do this easily, or at all, with acquaintances we have no Love for.
It is hard to tell at all, but I suppose it could be possible that certain species of the animal kingdom have developed their instinct for Love to a
much higher level, compensating in part to the inability to use audible language. Establishing a Bond of Love, communication may be advanced to a
level where one animal can convey their feelings to another animal of the same species (similar to spreading a rumor), even though that connection is
originally between 2 different species.
This could clearly be identified as a conscious communication between members of one species. It could also be theorized that this type of
communication does indeed span across several different species and that humans can simply not relate to, or connect to it on such a detailed level.
If this is ever confirmed, then Pandora's Box of the animal kingdom may be opened. Communicating with love, as fact, would no doubt raise questions
about what other emotions can be present in different species.
Identifying the loss of their human friend, using Love, may have led to a emotional state of mourning.
Maybe all emotions humans experience are also experienced by many other species, but on a different level of comprehension and expression.
