Something I threw together from last Saturday. So much fun, and I did almost die…. or fall off the waterfall.
Are some people content with not achieving great things? If giving the opportunity who wouldn’t? Many of us settle with what we can get by with. Is that because his or her dreams seem to far away? Is it the way a person is raised from a young age, or the environment they’re born into? Are some people just more naturally driven towards success and power while others are happy with what life gives them. Perspective is everything, I could wake up each morning and be happy with the food, comfort, and security that many of us desirer so badly. But even then unless I am a monk or an removed from society, that wouldn’t satisfy me or most people as it appears. Does this show us a glimpse of human nature? That if a person knows what is possible economically then he or she won’t rest a day till they are satisfied. But in early agrarian civilizations I think it is known that people didn’t behave this way. Or perhaps whoever grew the most wheat got the most women? Since our physical needs are accommodated so easily in modern society that it allows us to be creative and competitive. Then why aren’t all of us driven the same way as other? Is it television’s fault? Maybe a person does believe he or she is doing great things and that alone is enough for that person. In that case what is the determining factor between that person and any successful figure that has worked their way to the top. Where I arrive at now is that people are different, interest and what makes them happy. We are all born with different skill and ability, therefore what makes one person happy does not have to apply to the next. Why and How? If you believe in destiny then I know your answer. Or is that just what makes humans so successful, interesting and beautiful creatures. We vary more than any other known species, but we know that our genetic make up only differs by less than 1%. So it has to be our awesome brains then. It is true that some people are born with higher intelligence than others, but does that cross over to drive and competitiveness. Are others just more animalistic which causes them to want to out do his or her neighbor.
If you live in America you were told that competition is good, a sort of laissez faire mentality; and in sports it is completely necessary. But perhaps we have reached a point of interconnectedness through the internet, that if something is good people are going to find out about it. The reason we have a hundred different brands of toilet paper is because someone thinks that it is profitable to sell it. Lets say we got ride of every single unnecessary company and job and only kept business that sold a good product or service at a fair price, and anyone else was told to go home and do the thing they love. Perhaps you wouldn’t need a job, perhaps for every Facebook like you got was worth a bit coin or some sort of adjusted currency that if you were to express yourself online and when people like it it would be profitable. Maybe you had to work a real job that people in a functioning society depends on i.e. construction worker. work as that for till a certain age then if you feel ready you could stop and pick up a hobby or do what ever it is you love. There would constantly be a new body of employees ready to put in there time. If it turns out that working in a restaurant is what makes you happy you would be free to do it for as long as you liked, obviously earning more than you would as on the peer rewarded retirement so to speak.
I’m going to end it there, my point being is, I think there is a better way to run a society, who knows what the future will hold for us, with nano technology and such, where are we going on this crazy ride.
We must look where we’ve been to get a sense of where we’re going. The first peoples to create civilizations and worship Gods always casted nature as a female figure. The term Mother Nature is still widely used today. If we understand where we came from we can have a better idea as to how we can exist peacefully on this plane., The root of human nature is deep within the bounds of the universe. Suppose this was the case…..
Lets apply Male and Female genders to the key components of the known universe. Male being all energy and Female being Nature and universal laws, such as gravity. These two forces are at battle with one another, male always trying to expand and conquer, and female is trying to constantly harness and ground him. They are codependent on one another as most binary systems are, both intelligent forces with crafty ways of working. The universe is the battlefield upon which energy and nature are in flux. Small wars take place all over space; some within stars and black holes, but most of all planets are theirmost creative fight. They draw parts form one another in effort to fool it’s counterpart. The female laying out the drawing board and landscape, energy thus provides motion and life. Energy provides the spark or firing of a gun at the start of the race. Energy creates the life but nature can shape it’s path, she can use her external forces to influence the walking, crawling, flying, slithering, and swimming energy. Energy influences nature to evolve it’s creations with what nature can throw at it, thus potentially benefiting energy over time. The longer time goes on the more energy is dominating nature, but nature can still fight back whenever she wants. The energy that is formed and designed to conquer nature is still shaped by nature herself. Energy life forms land on a spectrum of means of conquering on one end and peaceful existence with nature on the other. No one energy form is bound to either one; at any moment nature can pull a form of energy toward her goal of stoping energy, or show it something that makes it going sprinting back the other.
The fight will go on for ever forever in some part of the universe. We are the product of creativity from which the universal battle of energy and nature is exercised through our finger tips.
