Tell me

6 08 2011

Tell me about the shame of being a young father who can’t sustain his family;  and then tell me about the rest of young fathers and mothers bringing children to this world having no sense of shame for not being able to tell their descendants why exactly they were born ?

 
Tell me about the wonders and thoughts when people meet kings and royals.  And then tell me about staring at stars, knowing that we failed to detect life on everywhere we looked in sky up to distances of 13.2 billion light years .  Tell me about being alone in this insanely vast universe, and how’s that provokes no wonders to most of people.

 

Tell me about the growing need in an adopted child’s chest to discover the identity of his real parents; and then tell me about our current world’s population that has no real history documents older than 2500 years. Why don’t we want to know where we came from ? Why are we talking, debating and are interested in things happened from only 2500 years while this planet is 4.54 billion years old ?

 

We live in present, we live in this tiny little point of time called “present”, and no matter how we pretended otherwise, we’re truly not interested in anything happened before or happens after.

The facts are strange… humans are not the less.

the fact that our thoughts are limited in short time frames is due to the survival needs.Conditions on earth developed a creature responding to dangers for survival in the rate of their occurrence : seconds,days, seasons …but not nano seconds or billions of years .

During this evolution process an accidental adaptation module was developed in brain : the conscience. from an urging need of building stable reasoning models for changing environments.with conscience humans are out time frames.

Wondering is another mechanism of raising the priority of some thoughts and questions, in order of reshaping the instantaneous model and a quick change of plans.

Models have gaps (range of facts contradicting the model), AKA paradoxes.
better models have fewer gaps.Fermi paradox is one of the modern consciousness sturdy gaps.even stronger than all ghost stories .

the answer to this paradox will probably reshape humanity, more than any religion or any technology known have done yet.

the reason that most people are not interested, is that the gift of building elegant models -by posing questions and pursue answers- is time and force consuming, like most of gifts: painting, composing … .if all humans got this, they will be more vulnerable, prone to dangers, and their survival chances fall. a limited portion is the balance for survival equation.

when talking to a strong model builder individual (Philosopher), one can distinguish two separate individuals : the thinker and the old animal . it is not matter of pretending but a matter of knowing which part is taking control every time.

i hope this tells you 🙂
