Dissuading Consciousness

How the primer of life is sick and it’s showing.

Faith has no bearing on if we endure as a species, but it does have an impact on if we don’t. Belief is an arrogant default, distorted, misdirected void of reality, deceptive and skewed observations in favor of overreaching abundance and waste—this latest brand of hominids imagine great and unprovable things.

Somewhere in our past a neuron misaligned or is being used in an untoward affect—a synesthesia or other genetic misfortune hooked to ego and fear, then egotistic salvation and false-worth bred complacency—no one is coming to rescue us.

Unless a change is made the earth will one day be void of the chatter of men, void of human beauty and love—millennia’s of blank pages to be rediscovered in our fossil record by the next batch to rise aboriginal in the resilient and resurgent pools of DNA—life.

Consciousness transudes (1) from the living earth and directs DNA to build hospitable, organic environments driven by various levels of its potential—each one mapping out a resemblance to its capacity. Once an entity is no longer hospitable, the consciousness must leave the organism and death of that body occurs (this is easily observed). Equilibrium and the collage of consciousness recycles itself again and again, often shelved for myriads of time, dissipated into the atmosphere and elements—stored until conditions for organic life are met. Genetic epidemics like autism, cancer, and diabetes bear this out when skewed conscious determination maps a new life into forming with polluted potential.

Now the earth is overflowing with inhabitants struggling over a fixed amount of consciousness, with the dominant energies depleting the earth of its nature—not in its danger, but inflicting ourselves within this delicate, yet massive earth that will once again absorb its most acumen (2) nature shortly after our own bodies are no longer a suitable host to carry its potential—as we change our environment to become inhospitable to life, it will take millions of years to restore the balance for the rise of the next species.

While searching for the meaning of life outside of ourselves has been futile for thousands of years (and worth abandoning) through every rise and fall of hominids, one thing observable is true—the physical earth perpetuates and nurtures lifecycles—but only within a specific balance. We are sickly and getting worse. Is that any wonder?

Phylogeny tells us many lines have existed before. Human-like remains from the late Miocene period and the Pliocene era (7.5 and 5.3 million years ago) are not likely our ancestors, but different lines of hominid civilizations that appeared and disappeared, materializing at different places and times all over the globe—then gone. We too will be fossilized then followed by a resurgent, autonomic force that eminates from this unique speck in the galaxy. With some care we can make this ride last as long as we want—or not. Sapiens 2.0 may get the opportunity sooner than later.

(1) Transudes—to pass through a membrane or permeable substance 

(2) Acumen—ability to reason, keenness, depth of perception, discernment, or discrimination especially in practical matters.

    1. Then how would you explain the lowing IQ’s? More information than ever before, less intelligence and less knowledge. A very few select minds are driving this ship and the rest are along for the ride. Yes? No? Sorry I forgot to reply earlier.

  2. Faith has no bearing… but religion has certainly been a tool for promoting reproduction. In fact the first anti-gay laws (aka buggery laws) were born in an era when Europeans wanted to increase reproduction rates in the colonies.
    The idea of increasing the size/strength of the tribe (obviously coupled with early indoctrination) is directly connected to religion.

    1. It’s outlasted it’s usefulness. Numbers help for a while, outnumbering plagues and wars, only to spawn more plagues and wars. Would be nice to have a little balance.

    2. The more lives religions force to be born, the more money they expect to make. Homosexuality and abortions cost the churches millions. Of course they preach against them.

  3. Yes, I understand. It seems like we are the very “virus” and the Agent Smith describes humans in the Matrix. However, we have children and grandchildren to whom we are leaving this mess. It is completely derelict of our responsibility to them. Just imagine the world which they will have to learn to live in and for what? Oil? Coal? Petrochemicals? We (the collective “we”) are allowing a very few amount of privileged corporate micreants to run us right off a cliff and we’re following them like lemmings.

    1. I agree JZ. The game has gone on for a long, long time. Am I just voicing the inevitable? As with most things I would think the only thing holding us back is the lack of unity. Divided we are certainly doomed. If we all join Jesus and his ostriching minions we could end it in our lifetime.

      1. Sounds like a plan.

        Reagan was a mess, but he was right about saying an alien threat would evaporate our differences and unite humanity. That, or we need to get off this rock and into space permanently. Let me go check the budgets and progress on those 1,000 interstellar generation ships…

      1. No kidding Mary. We have a few samples millions of years old. Finding something that old probably is just scratching the time line of hominid life. Things were much more advanced and different than we can imagine—several times.

  4. There is so much to think about in this post! I recently read another blogger talking about how while we may be in the middle of a mass extinction event, people are probably going to be fine. I think he vastly overestimates our survival chances. Science honestly doesn’t know much about the phenomenon of extinction but what is known suggests we are in a very precarious situation — perhaps because of some of our uniquely human characteristics. Like everyone else we are confronted with climate change, depleted soil and water resources, etc. But we also know that when humans are stressed we often see some counterproductive tendencies: like wars, denial and escapism. Our technology provides little buffer. For every thing that might help us there are always unintended consequences. Air travel, for example connects us but it also allows viruses and disease to travel across the globe at phenomenal rates. There is certainly room for hope but blind faith in anything: religion, science, technology is terrifyingly misplaced. What we need to do is start fixing our mistakes.

    1. What little we know about extinction is not too hard to imagine other scenarios— like what happened in the America’s with a few viruses, as well as the major world plagues of the past. I would venture a guess that some climate change could spawn even different pandemics. Tweaking the climate may be the epitome of unintended consequences of lines we’ve never seen or thought of. Humans are pretty sickly anyway. Combine a couple of bacterial mutations and who knows? Life is a delicate balance we take for granted.

      1. We really ought to approach this with some humility — if not out of respect for the life around us then at least out of self interest.

  5. I agree natural selection doesn’t always get it right, especially in the short term (which can be millions of years) but in the longer term (billions), I think it evens out.

    We think of our own destruction and death or our species or planet, but maybe total destruction of the this entire universe (there are probably others) is just the way it is. A huge cycle of birth, death and rebirth in a purely natural non supernatural way.

  6. Excellent post!
    Thoughts…. Seems you can’t have both
    Man as a species is intelligent, self aware, creative (think music, literature, arts), sometimes caring and kind ( think groups that help people in need, animal rights, environmental activism etc.), smart (think medical and technological inventions that serve us well) and more I’m sure.

    But this is balanced with the ever persistent greed, corruption, selfishness, dishonesty, cruelty, racism, religious intolerance and killings, destruction, wars, hatred, apathy and on and on.

    So nature and evolution will take care of this dichotomy in time. Humans, like us, will probably never evolve again here or on any other planet unless it’s strictly a natural means to become that which destroys to make room for what’s next.

    What we are in the midst of may be fully natural, even though it seems to us, horrific.

    I can only hope there are other planets out there full of life and incredible beauty like here, but minus a human like creature that spells destruction.

    1. Im not so sure natural selection always gets it right or has a motive. But that is an excellent comment. I lean towards the few trying to protect the masses from themselves. The other way hasn’t worked and breeds contempt for human longevity.

      1. Part of humans very self destruction is driven by religion and belief in fantasy and nonsense. If this were to occur on other planets in any form, the same fate would eventually follow. Religion does one thing well. It divides and brews up hatred and intolerance….a recipe for disaster.

  7. Or there may never be a sapiens 2.0, or whatever number we are, +1. So-called “intelligence” may easily be seen as a “been there, done that” process and cast aside as useless. I mean, exactly what did we accomplish?
    We hated others of our species, we used other species, we enslaved every species including our own. This is intelligence? We invented beings who do not exist (gods, vampires, zombies, and Santa Claus), some of whom we put in charge of our lives. This is intelligence? We dirtied our own home, destroyed the land that grew our food, and took things out of the ground that contaminated our air. This is intelligence? And we made our lives full of stress to the point our health and our sanity suffered perilously. This is intelligence?
    Pretty much we took everything good about our world and turned it into unreasoning garbage. This is NOT intelligence, this is INSANITY. But did we stop, even when we saw where our insanity was taking us? No! This is NOT intelligence. When we saw how technology was outstripping our ability to control it, how human consciousness became more and more separated from greed and power, and hatred, did we do anything to close the divide? This is not intelligence.
    Evolution plus chaos work together to test many things, and if those things don’t work, they are dropped by the wayside. We humans are about to be dropped by the wayside. What will come next I have no idea, but I sure as life hope that intelligence, human style, is never tried again. If we even leave a world for it to be tried on…

    1. True. I get you your point but in this context think of intelligence as aptitude, capability, dexterity, capacity and perception. We have all those things as well as their opposite traits. Restraint we be a nice development but greed is king. Everyone wants to save the earth as soon as they get what is theirs. No style, no class, just get in line and buy now… Great comment sir! Well said

      1. Thank you, Jim. Good post. I can think intelligence in all those traits, but I see very little will to use them intelligently. Some of us try, certainly. but we are not allowed to succeed in numbers. Occasionally, one at a time, but not on a large scale.
        Three years ago I knew we would succeed. Now I am sure we will not survive.

  8. Christopher Hitchens used to describe how 99.4% of all the creatures that ever walked the Earth are now extinct. Animals that roamed the Earth for hundreds of millions of years are gone – as opposed to Homo Sapiens that have been here for the proverbial “blink of an eye,” perhaps 100-150,000 years. Ironically, our passing will have been brought upon us as a result of our own action (or, inaction) and much faster than many of our predecessors. And more ironic still, all while pondering the “meaning of life” and our role within some larger context of collective meaning.

    1. I don’t think most people realize the battle that wages on constantly for homeostasis and equilibrium. It’s a very narrow window conducive to life. A .1% swing in pH upsets the entire organism and leads to early death and alters our chemistry significantly. The atmosphere is an incredibly thin protective layer we have no problems abusing while we contemplate meaning, meanwhile killing ourselves and more.
