It could very plausible that for many many years, starting from the initial habitat that included present day humans, individuals of those early
civilizations spent much time pondering their existence.
Undoubtedly, they were stumped on the more philosophical and metaphysical mysteries surrounding their existence as individuals and the universal
environment they live in.
I think it could also be plausible that, out of these sessions of deep thought, the un-answerable thoughts that plagued the masses would eventually
turn into obsessions and eventually torment a large majority of people at that time.
Out of a need for truth and fulfillment came one of the most important necessities ever realized by our ancestors.
Where there is a necessity, there is a person willing to fill that niche and answer the most troubling questions of that period - for some sort of
financial or social status gain, of course.
A respected, but deceitful, member of that community could have worked at great length to create an explanation to account for many of those mysteries
- similar to a modern day TOE (Theory of Everything)
If this is indeed something that took place during that time, then it is also plausible that the individual drew large amounts of attention and
established a formidable following. Understanding the teachings of this innovative leader, many of the followers may have seen fit to continue his
As most everyone here has learned, the stories passed down from elders to newer generations would probably vary from the original telling. Eventually
the original stories could have been embellished and expanded to a point that may not even resemble the original stories. Continuing for millennia,
these stories continued to morph until they became what we know today as Gd and spirituality.
I will be the first to admit, I have no evidence to back this up and have not really thought about it long enough to say a large percentage of my
opinion supports this idea. It is a plausible possibility and could account for some of the things that remain mysteries today.
Studying the way we question and reform the old philosophies today, we can see how our manipulation of the ancient stories could be very similar to
the way the original teachings morphed over the years.
It could also be a product of something else. I am building a thread on Collective Consciousness now, so I won't go into great depth on it here.
Many have speculated that, if enough people think the same thing, we can manifest the thought of our combined desires into reality.
I will say it's possible we have an unidentified sense for collective consciousness. If the majority of people are questioning the same thing and led
to a common conclusion, then maybe we have sensed the collective will of those who believe in a higher power.
This may push us to find evidence or proof of a Creator Gd that would cease relentless speculation from the Collective Consciousness and allow us to
advance into a further state of comprehension and awareness, where even more baffling questions may be exposed..
