When did we stop being a part of the universe, and start living inside it instead.
When we compare an aspect of nature with another, such as a tree to a plant, it is obvious they are two varied parts of the same whole, nature.
It is in this nature of things that i believe the entire human race is bastardised, and i have very strong feelings about this.
We do not view ourselves as parts of this vast universe. We live in it, sure, but no man would hold up his hands and admit that his entire lifes work surmounts to an inconsequential sequence of events and happenings in a system bigger than himself, and his wife would not look up from her newborn baby's face and say to him, congratulations your DNA has been reproduced.
Don't get me wrong, we need to see things for what they arent to see beauty within things, but to a certain extent its dangerous.
Have you ever been told by a conspiracy nut that your just a statistic, just a number to the 'man'? Have you ever been told your ACTING like one? I mean seriously people, ive been watching you all, and your scared, soo scared that golden delicious aren't as tasty as granny smith. TERRIFIED of pc failing and leaving you with the taste of apple, PETRIFIED of your inabilities to try new things, so you all stick to the same brand, the same place, stay there until you have a comfortable rut and never change. THAT is how the machine knows where you are and where you are going to be, its not because of the cctv or gps tracking, its because those systems know you never go anywhere else.
Anyway, i rant and digress.
My point is we, at some point, saw the beauty of the universe and invented a god to give it all to us. Therein lies problems with atheism, We may have shaken the idea of god, but did we give him back his gift to us as a leaving present? No we kept the human idea of the universe being ours, and continue to dig up, reshape, destroy and massacre the earth, and spill oil and pollution out into the air and sea.
You, you unconscious evil vile putrid machine, i see you. Your eyeless cameras watching the un-movers. I will not let you eat me, not without an upset stomach.
We have strived to break free from conformity, at a stabbing attempt at individuality. Human nature seems to make us want to be individuals but still fit in with groups, we want to have Nice shiny things and yet not appear greedy or spoilt. We want the world but not the disasters?
Did ANYONE ever grow up and truly realise you cant have your cake and eat it.
/ end rant.
