Thank you...it is an honor being your first post
I think there is an underlying hierarchy to life that is not apparent to science--something that we have not yet
perceived. In nature there is evolution, growth, an improvement on the past.
Nature seems to favor this meme...
I think it would be likely that metaphysical nature would follow this same meme as well.That consciousness
would somehow grow, that consciousness is a viable and interactive part of the universe, and subject
to the laws of physics that we have perceived so far.
It could be that we do cease to be conscious at death, but what a waste.
Whew...I get so lost trying to communicate things which defy my ability to describe.
Hard science will tell you that your conscious is nothing more than electrical impulses firing off
in your brain. That your mood is controlled by well understood chemical releases, your thoughts
are the products of stimuli, your creative process is the result of conscious or subconscious
information retrieval reorganized into something new, etc...
But what of the curious nature of why consciousness exists. Why, in this brief span of
30 thousands days we call a life, would each of us somehow well-spring a singular self-awareness
from nothing but a few cells of bio-material...The question is bigger than the answer, and its
implications can only lead me to believe that what is apparent about this life span...is not the
As for aliens seeding or manipulating life on this planet, I have long pondered our SUDDEN rise
in intellectual ability. We humans have been around for tens of thousands of years and our recorded
history is woe-fully short.
I've always wondered why I was never taught very much about human origins in school....history yes,
I know useless dates and names of explorers and landing sites and wars, but very little is ever
said about what we know of our origins....because they isn't very much.
The planet has been around for five billion years, life for 3 billion, multi-cellular life for less than that....
and in the space of five thousand years we have gone from worshiping the sun and believing the
earth was flat to visiting the moon. And in just a few more years we will have succeeded in cloning
and manipulating life on a grand scale, perhaps even learning how to turn of the little clock
in each of our cells that restrict our lifetimes....
....Yes, I think an alien or two had their hand in our human cookie jar.....seems obvious to me....
