Monday Moaning: Frail Superiority!
How is it possible that our sense of superiority is as frail as a cookie. On clench of a fist has it crumble into tiny bits. Our head is up in the clouds thinking we are the supreme race on this tiny planet. Just that we can have great medical achievement and are able to live longer we are still nothing in the eyes of nature.
We are flesh and blood that can drop dead at any given time the change has only grown bigger since our own inventions to make life easier. It is idiotic in real life that we put such great value in our inventions that give us that feeling of becoming almost invincible. Cheating death with medicine.
Right now I am writing this while having a run to the toilet every so often. That is how frail I am, my body is. Eat one thing bad and your done for.
It becomes even more bothersome when e push a gun in someone’s hand. They quickly feel like they are god or close to and can or have been given the right to rule over how dies and lives. And groups do feel this very strongly.
Once you have an army well armed with guns you can quickly hold a world hostage. Well you might start small with just a town but it does grow. On top of that is the frail mind that can be taught any lie as a truth. Our mind isn’t all that strong and can easily be manipulated or tricked.
It makes you wonder what is left standing about all this superiority we have or like to think we have.
Whether you are a wealthy or poor each is exposed to these moments we will feel weak. It is just that with money we can buy better medicines and hire an army for protection. Though in the end we are all susceptible to the same illnesses and same mind tricks.
Could one start to believe that animal instinct that what we have left behind a long time ago makes it all simple. It is or isn’t. We know do and that is all there is to it.
We have our intelligence and it is what makes superior. Again or so we like to think but it is very frail. It doesn’t give us all the answer neither do we know all the answers it is why we keep searching. But what do we look for?
As the directions are most the time about extending life. We feel death is a threat to our superiority. Next to that we create better arms for defense purposes. At the same time we always forget that the mistake is in the fact they can easily be used for attacks as well. In the end if we can protect we live longer.
In the end it comes down to one thing we can’t control. On tiny flaw in our existence or so we like to think. Death. It is what we fear so much.
But I do like to ask then is if we fear death do we have a right or more in the terms of, do we have the privilege to be alive? Yes in the end I do not think it is a right. It is what also creates that insanity of being superior. I have a right there for I can, I will and I have the right to fight a threat. Whether that be another man with a gun or an illness.
It is maybe some insane thinking but maybe more about that next week.
I am going to be sick again and take it easy. Contemplate what cause my body to feel so weak.What makes us so weak and how we need means in our hands to feel strong. How weak are we that we need to rely on what we create rather than rely on what we are for strength.
Maybe one day we can see that we need each and every one of us to work together in order to be strong.
