*natural human: as the name states, they were born without the "spark" of light a.k.a "soul" their primary goal in life is to reproduce, and thrive no
matter what the cause. they usually form packs and are easy to manipulate and control. they do not question or even ponder their existence. almost ALL
psychopaths and murderers are considered natural humans or "empty shells" as well as roughly 97% of the population on earth. a natural human will do
what ever it takes to climb the social hierarchy. when a soul moves on and no longer reincarnates..a natural human is born..basically a baby with no
soul..a.k.a "empty shell" they are strictly molded by society and their upbringing. when an empty shell dies, nothing happens..same as if a jellyfish
or ant dying..nothing happens.
I agree with you about some things, and not about other things.
I do agree that most humans are easily manipulated, controlled, and used as pawns by someone else for their own benefit. This is plainly evident.
However I do not agree with the idea that they are lacking "a soul", which I will assume to mean a consciousness that is eternal.
From a certain perspective, especially if you have incarnated on this world for a very long time and have gained a certain wisdom, it is easy to start
tinkering with the idea that others who have not lived as many lives are less than you in a fundamental way. In fact I think one has to explore that
avenue of thought to "advance" beyond it.
But when you start differentiating beings on a fundamental level, such as one has consciousness and one does not, it becomes an expression of the
deadliest "sin", Pride with a capital P, and can stall your "evolution" if you become stagnant in that particular mental framework that places you
above others in a fundamental way.
Sure, it can be rationalized by saying "well its all OK, we all have our place (except my place is infinitely better, obviously)
something similar, but its still an exercise in Pride.
Everything has eternal consciousness, or "soul", like you and I. All animals, all plants, all minerals. Just because they express that consciousness
in a dissimilar way from you and I, does not mean they do not have consciousness at all.
Even those "empty shells" have eternal consciousness. Their expression of their consciousness is simply not as "refined", so to speak, as someone
whose had perhaps thousands of functional years to develop and fine-tune that expression in a way that they find most pleasing.
I like to use the analogy of this being a gigantic game on a server called "The Universe" (one server of many). The "empty shells" are the noobs in
this massive game. They recently joined the server, and dont really know what to do, or even what they WANT to do. But every lifeform has a basic
template for a consciousness to follow, as sort of a guide for basic behavior. Some templates are more rigid (mineral), others are more malleable
(animals) and allow for more character customization, basically.
But when you first join a new server running a new game youve never played before, and theres definitely no tutorial nor manual, theres little else
for one to do but follow the basic character template of the life form you are assuming, and go from there. Many choose to play only a little bit;
some of the more "hardcore" gamers choose to play for very, very long periods of time, life after life after life, and in that time, refine their
technique and behavior to levels that the noobs cannot even imagine attaining themselves.
It can also result in great frustration for the long-time players when having to deal with the noobs, because there is such a massive disparity
between their levels of practical experience with the game, that their behaviors, actions, thoughts, expectations, etc, are completely different, and
if they happen to be the same at some point, they are the same but for reasons that differ.
"Occupied humans", are those hardcore players who have been playing this game a very long time. Their perspectives on things are more often than not
highly refined through massive amounts of practical in-game experience.
"Empty shells" are those players who just started playing, or havnt been around that long. Their perspectives are simple and lack depth due to a
dearth of practical experience.
there are very few of us "occupied" humans.. some reside here on this website and they feel it deep down that they are completely different
than the rest of the empty shells..i have felt it as long as i can remember since i was around 3 years old.
I do agree with this statement, with the meanings of "occupied" and "empty shell" modified to simply mean those with long-term practical experience,
and those without. And certainly you will know, if you are a long-term player, who else is a long-term player, and who just joined the server, so to
And they really are quite few and far between. Just like very few are motivated to put 1,000s of hours into an earthly video game, few are motivated
to put 1,000s of years in this "real" game, at least in the same form. Those who have though, have the experience to see the fine and subtle aspects
of the game, and their depth of understanding of that game to its core is virtually unfathomable to those who have less experience.
But think about this: what if your time here is almost up? What if you are bored of this game, tired of its core mechanics, and weary of its now all
too familiar character options? What if you find yourself just repeating themes over and over again, and want something new? You could always find
another game to play.
But then, to the entity who has been playing that (to you) new game for an eon already, all of a sudden you
are the "empty shell" without a
soul, looked upon with subtle scorn.
There are always the pride-filled douche bags in every game, who think they are intrinsically better than others because they have been playing the
game longer. That is simply, as far as I can tell, completely unavoidable.
But the thing that is avoidable, is becoming one yourself.
