There is a lot of talk about the Draco being the evil ones. But how can we really make that assertion? Granted, there's a lot of talk about
serpents and other vile creatures in the Bible, but why is the snake the evil one?
Going back to basics is actually a "alien" concept to
many now a days lol lol, But if you want your answer you may want to do just that.
For those who are waiting for "proof" of this or that, you may just end up missing the boat. Use your own mind to consider everything you are
shown, draw your own conclusions, but above all else, look for your own "Proof". If you are sincere and honest with yourself you may eventually
Starting with the term "Evil", what is it?
Evil is profound immorality. In certain religious contexts evil has been described as a supernatural force. Definitions of evil vary, as
does the analysis of its root motives and causes. However elements that are commonly associated with evil involve unbalanced behavior involving
expediency, selfishness, ignorance, or neglect.
For now Ill just stick with the first meaning, immorality. Evil is not following the morals, or our self induced rules to live by. We seem to have
trouble with this because we always try to assign these rules to life forms that do not follow our rules of conduct. Evil is not following the rules
by which we "Human Beings" live by.
There are two basic types of life on this planet, and two sets of rules (moral code) to guide them. Mammals, and Reptiles. Reptiles do not use
"Morals" and therefor can not by their very nature be "Evil". Reptiles may eat their young, they may eat human beings or a host of things we
perceive as evil. The reptiles code of conduct was written to highlight their individual survival while the code for human beings was written to
highlight the groups survival. Morals are our survival code.
To go a little further, reptiles were on this planet first. It was the world of "Rule of Jungle". Might makes right, reptile eat reptile (Dog eat
Dog). The best and brightest would survive while the lesser forms would fall to the way side. The most cunning and subtle would survive. To
today's standards, it was hell on earth.
All life originated from the reptile and its original survival code. This is why you find a "Reptilian" brain at the core of our own. We human
beings can not escape our most primitive code of self preservation. But being human beings we are given the choice to follow the original core
programing, and start eating each other and be viewed as evil, or live by morals and survive as a species.
Rapaille subscribes to the triune brain theory of Paul D. MacLean, which describes three distinct brains: the cortex, limbic, and reptilian. Beneath
the cortex, the seat of logic and reason, is the limbic, which houses emotions. Camouflaged underneath those is Rapaille's theorized brain—the
Rapaille believes that buying decisions are strongly influenced by the reptilian brain, which is made up of the brain stem and the cerebellum. Only
accessible via the subconscious, the reptilian brain is the home of our intrinsic instincts. It programs us for two major things: survival and
reproduction. Rapaille proposes that in a three-way battle between the cortical, the limbic (home of emotion) and the reptilian areas, the reptilian
always wins, because survival comes first. This theory has become the basis for his thoughts on what a product means to consumers on the most
Rapaille’s mantra is “the reptilian brain always wins.”
"Rapaille’s mantra is “the reptilian brain always wins.”" Always? Until you figure out it is there, and you can control it.
As far as "Smart lizards" being real, and real evil, well, all the biblical and ancient scripture must of had some genesis in the past. I just hope
no one has to be Eaten alive, to prove a point. That, would be just pure evil
