An amazing thing, the human brain. Capable of understanding incredibly complex and intricate concepts. Yet at times unable to recognize the obvious and simple. [Jay Abraham]
The Human - And, The Earthling
By Parwaiz Khan
We are an amazing species! It seems that we blow fire from one nostril and the cool breeze from the other. We are indeed an amazing case-study in ourselves.
All other species have predictable behavior pattern - We know what to expect from an alligator or a hyena or a lion or a baboon or a horse or a pigeon or a dove or, even from a chimp - These animals just follow their natural instincts associated with their respective species and, hence, are predictable in their behavior. The Human, on the other hand, is a contradiction in itself. Even though it shares more than 80 percent (at least) of its DNA with the rest of the animal life, it defies the natural behavioral pattern that would and should have classified it as a distinct and unique species.
We observe members of the Human Family who gladly share their food and shelter with the needy fellows, who are eager to help others, who enjoy the success and happiness of fellow human beings. They don't even hesitate to sacrifice themselves to save the life of others.
On the other spectrum, we see members of the same Human Family who rob and steal the livelihood of their fellow human, who cannot stand the success and happiness of others. They even enjoy torturing, maiming and killing other human - They celebrate their acts of genocidal mass murder.
These two characteristics have no common ground.
How can it be a single species?
The undeniable similarity and Common DNA with the rest of the animal kingdom suggest that the human - this Earthling - has shared an evolutionary path with the other animal life forms on this earth. In physical form, shape and structure it is a single species - The Human. But, still it manages to defy the characteristics of a single species!
May it be that The Human is more than a mere Earthling? May it be that The Human is something more than just the physical form - The epitome of the evolution but still an Animal in form?
There certainly is a compelling case in the behavioral characteristics that are a pole apart.
On the One Side we observe:
The Glorious and The Gracious - The Epitome of Kindness, Generosity and Compassion - Born in pure Innocence - A flourishing fountain of Heavenly Beauty and pure Joy - A Statement of Marvel in itself. The Human - Loving and Caring - Compassionate, Gentle and Friendly - Pillar of Strength - Ready and eager to Help, Support and Protect - Ready to Share and Enjoy the Success of fellow Human - Creative and Inventive - Superbly Intelligent - A Thinker and a Kind Philosopher - The Seeker of Truth and Knowledge - Honest and Pious - Logical, Reasonable and Understanding.
And, On The Other Side we see:
The Fratricidal Maniac and The Vicious Beast - The Embodiment of Ruthlessness, Ferociousness and Jealousy - Mean, Selfish and Self-Indulging - The Purveyor of Death and Destruction - Propagator of Hate and Animosity - Thoughtless and Witless - Eternal Coward - Deceptive and Vulgar - A Cunning Predator. The Human - Unreasonable and Illogical - The Enemy of Truth - The Killer of Honesty, Dignity and Kindness.
These characteristics are completely mutually exclusive and their union in one single species should not be occuring. But, here we have The Human - Breaking the norms.
The Dweller of Two Extremes! We seem to be dealing with a special case scenario where the norms governing the evolutionary pathway don't apply. There are no other life forms that possess such diverse traits that really are two poles apart - A proverbial Angel on one hand and a mythological Demon on the other hand. It seems that the Human species has walked through two completely different evolutionary paths that are at 180° angle with each other! And, somehow, following the curvature of the planet, these two strangers of differing paths collided with each other at some point and fused together to form this contradictory life form!
May it be that we are dealing with a Two-in-One entity - A union or fusion of two separate entities into a single functioning form - Sometimes at odd and sometimes in harmony with each other - The dwellers of two extremes forced into a union. And, the result is what we call The Human - An amalgamation of The Human and The Earthling in reality.
The two extremes of the nature and behavior of this unique being corroborate to the presence of a superbly intelligent entity - a sort of Life-Energy form originating from a world beyond the realm of this evolutionary universe - The Human and, the other, the earthly animal form that emerged at the top of the evolutionary line - The Earthling.
The glorious and gracious nature of the Human points to its origin in a Non-Evolutionary World - The Real World - where the survivalist instinct needed to ride the evolutionary ladder don't come into play.
The Laws, Rules and Regulation of The Real World, in whose tiny cavity this Enormous Universe exists, are beyond the grasp of our brains that are structured to function in this Universe. The type of Energy and its Magnitude, that is the structural source for the formation of The Real World, is accordingly beyond our comprehension.
The heavenly compassion, the originality of thoughts, the wisdom and the intelligence of This Glorious and Gracious Human being points to its origin in, what we may very well call, The Mother World. The Human origin and form belongs there. The source and the type of the energy incorporated in its formation have to be appropriately proportioned for functioning in that World. The structural composition and the shape of its reality is beyond the configuration of our physical brains that have evolved from their animal roots.
A thoughtful study of the two extreme behaviors and character traits of this human-earthling amalgamation provides us the understanding of these two separate entities in their respective individual self.
The Point of Origin Relevance:
The structural composition and the life engine of an organism is configured in relevance with the operational domain that is designated for the functioning and existence of that organism. These operational domains are bound by a system of multilevel energy fields that confine and maintain their integrity. The hierarchical structure of the life form permits the operational functionality at the lower levels but the higher-level operation is denied by way of automatic cessation of existence of the encroaching form or organism.
The entire Universe is, comparatively speaking, just a speckle in a tiny cavity in the belly of The Mother World - And, so is its energy level relative to The Mother World.
The Mother World operates at the level and type of the Energy that is beyond any comparative with reference to our Universe. The life forms originating there have to be configured and structured accordingly.
Unlike The Universe, whose structural integrity is maintained by virtue of the energy-string vibrations and spins, and whose termination is preset by its pullback to The Point Origin by the force of the nucleus of The Initial Energy that provided for The Big Bang, The Mother World enjoys a state of permanence and tranquility.
The Human, though confined and curtailed to function with in the limits of its animal neural structure and form, is an entity of life-energy form that originated in The Mother World. Its characteristics, faculties, capabilities and the form are appropriately configured to function at that level.
The Virtues and The Qualities:
The Tranquil Permanence: The Human, by virtue of its origin, enjoys a state of permanence. The permanence of its own existence bestows upon it the joys of peace and tranquility - At peace with itself; The Human is the purveyor of peace.
In Command & Control: The Human is confident in its own existence and its capabilities. It is in complete command and control of its own faculties and affairs - A pillar of strength - Clear and precise in its thoughts and actions. It is immune to death and destruction - There is no energy or force in this universe that cam harm it. Its form is beyond the need of any earthly nutrition or shelter - Beyond any needs, it feels no competition or threat from fellow Human being or other animals - The Human is comfortable and at ease.
The Creative Intelligence: The wisdom and intelligence are the hallmark of the Human. It is eager to learn and loves to impart knowledge. Its inherent intelligence guides it to promote the heavenly goodness all around it. The Human is the embodiment of thoughtfulness, respect, tolerance, cooperation and preservation. It is mindful of the rights of fellow beings and respects the right of absolute freedom for each and every one. The Human is by its very nature is logical, reasonable and understanding - A joy and a pleasure for the all beings around it - A fantastic companion.
Heavenly Beauty and Eternal Love: The Human is the model of heavenly beauty - The eternal love, kindness, generosity, compassion, truth, justice, piety and honesty. It rejoices the success, progress and happiness of fellow beings and promotes the harmonious coexistence. It is creative, productive and preserving - The environment around it enjoys the goodness and improvements created by its energy and resources. And, humble it is in the knowledge of the greatness of its very origin.
The Earthling, the other part of us to which The Human is fused, is the creation of this Universe. It has evolved on the planetary system - At the top of the evolution chain; it is the marvel of biological life form. But, being a product of a temporary system, it has a limited life cycle. It is an animal in origin.
This evolutionary marvel knows that it has a limited time span assigned to it and the death is awaiting it - There is no escape. Being the most advanced in the evolutionary chain, it has keen senses and a highly developed neural processing center - The fact of unavoidable termination are unacceptable to it. But, as it cannot avoid the termination, it is in a constant state of conflict with the laws that have set, along with the rules for the existence and sustenance of this universe, the provisions for the cessation of its life. On the other hand, it also understands that the same laws, collective called by us as the nature, provide for its very own existence. Naturally, The earthlig's behavior reflects these contradictory realities that controls its life.
The Behavior and The Characteristics:
Insecure and Fearful: The Earthling is aware of its animal origin and the associated vulnerability - It needs food, habitat and shelter - It knows that it can be hurt and can be killed by other animals - It can be destroyed by the forces of the nature. It knows that death is its predetermined destination. The Earthling is always scared and feels very insecure - The fear and the feelings of insecurity are the driving force behind its behavior and actions.
A Selfish and Cunning Schemer - A Predator: The Eartling represents the height of animal evolution. The association with the Human has greatly enhanced its faculties - It has a highly developed brain that can process the given information and instructions at a lightening speed - It can master the tricks like no other species - It has the physical form to handle the objects and to make or destroy the things.
This epitome of animal evolution lacks the wisdom and intelligence of The Human to promote the harmonious coexistence - Its selfish cunningness drives it to grab all the earthly booties for itself. The animal has the instincts of a predatory killer - It has no regards even for its own types - It looks at all others as its enemies who can be devoured as food to satisfy its own appetite and lust - Lacking the originality of thoughts, a plunderer and destroyer it is.
A Vicious and Ruthless Coward: The Earthling is paranoid - It feels insecure and threatened from all directions. It finds safety and security in eliminating all of its potential enemies - It feels compelled to kill and destroy - It feels justified in its right to kill others - Given the upper hand, It maims, smites and kills its perceived opponents - Fearful of its own life, it surrenders and submits to stronger challenger.
Witless and Deceitful: The Earthling, though at the height of the evolutionary process, is still an animal whose fully developed brain has deprived it of its animalistic innocence - It is self-indulging and amoral. Survivalist instincts have programmed it to be opportunist and deceitful. The animal instincts, minus the innocence, direct it to the path of vulgarity and shamelessness. At the end, In the absence of original intelligence and wisdom, it tends to fall prey to its own deceptions - Witless and thoughtless is The Animal.
This amazing being, known to us as The Human, is the amalgamation of these two separate entities - The Dwellers of the two Extremes - The Human and The Earthling. This functional Human being swings between its human origin and its animal instincts.
The Human, by virtue of its very origin, is immensely powerful, intelligent and compassionate. It is of the form of pure Life-Energy - The energy, that promotes life along with all its associated beauty and majesty. The Human energy, even though proportionally curtailed to facilitate the Human's operation in the animal form, is purely creative in nature. The Human-Earthling union flourishes as long as the Human remain in touch with its origin and exercises its creative, compassionate and intelligent authority to promote the heavenly peace and harmonious coexistence.
The Eartling enjoys the elevation to human level by its very association with The Human. The Human intelligence, wisdom and energy have transformed it into a marvelous being - But, at its core, it is still the animal. The Eartling wants The Human to fall in steps with the animal and subscribe to its ways.
The Human, even with all its intelligence, wisdom and the controlling powers, has to remain vigilant to keep in control. The Earthling's life is on the planetary world - It originated here and will end here. There is no other provision or place for it to go. It wants to indulge and maximize its fun and pleasure here - And, with the resources of The Human at its disposal, it can achieve its earthly objectives and fulfill its wishes. The Earthling just awaits for the moment to make the Human fall in step with it and start drooling in tune with it. Once in the trap of the animal intincts, The Human loses its humanity and joins the Earthling - To become A Cunning and Vicious Predator, A Disoriented Megalomaniac and A Tyrant to humanity.
The pity is that it is easy to fall prey to The Animalistic instincts.
