Thank you, Cicerone Imposter
To me the organism of nature without human intervention of any kind, is the most perfect thing I know. This impression has grown over decennia. I want to know more about it but my brain is the obstacle itself. I have to throw a lot of education over board, get rid of truths taken for granted for so long.
Ten years ago I was looking for something I could trust. So I came to nature. The fact that it existed long before homo sapiens was very important.
Nature has always been depicted as lovely..., but when she causes collateral damage, she is the enemy and vengeful... lately more than ever because of the extreme floods, the extreme droughts...
I don't mean the brains physically, I mean the way it functions, its productions, the consequenes of our thinking, the inventions and/or adaptations and applications.
I'm trying to explain why I think it can't be part of nature. I can't explain it in a few sentences because there is so much:
- the fact of language, speech,
- the way we procreate,
- the way we organise our community (village to country, to alliances between countries) hiërarchically
- why cultures contradict each other (ethics, moral,...)
- the consequences of patriarchal leadership (did matriarchal communities exist much more than we think?)
- why we need religion
- why we drug ourselves (alcohol or otherwise)
- one reality or more, and what about virtual realities?
- economy for the people or people for the economy
- citizenship or consumership and why
- why do humans deal with pain and suffering the way they do (torture,...)
- why are mystical, spiritual elements mostly located in space?
Perhaps some of these items will be brought to attention and then, of course, I will explain. The list itself is not finished.
An overall explanation is : we destroy nature and/or disturb the balance wherever we intervene (at the exclusion of small communities living the way they have lived for thousands of years). Most people are afraid of wild nature (a park where you jog every day has nothing to do with nature, even if the birds are singing in the trees).
If we want to know anything about nature we have to have labs, microscope, statistics, methods of study...even then we fail to see the connections between most plants and most animal species... there is no overall vieuw.
We also maintain the illusion more than ever that we don't need nature at all.
So all that, the way we think, the fact that we think doesn't belong in nature. Where it belongs, where it came from, I don't know.
Sometimes I think in ways of a big joke, that a young alien had to do some homework and was sent to earth. By mistake he injected something in one of the living creatures... the whole thing got out of hand... Since that happened they are watching from a safe distance... a big joke.
