You don't have to go to school to learn.


I know that. Many things are learned by interaction with people. Not definitons. Of course I do well to know that. I live alone inside outside and my instincts want to search for people to be with. Both close bonds and other types or whatever. Cannot type much with my shoulder at the moment. Sorry.

Humans are stupid as a group, but smart when alone. We exaggerate and escalate everything, seldom learning from the past we can't see due to having never lived in it. We build bigger in order to feel that way, but the idea fails when we realize that all of our efforts are straying away from a fundamental truth about the quality of life being in health and happiness with emphasis on family values and appreciation of friendship.

We are stripping this world of its vitality due to having a badly unbalanced population in comparison to available resources plus a constant fear of inadequacy when compared to other nations.

The human character has become sterilized and weak with modernization and the pathetic corporate ladders all the cubicle inhabiting cattle attempt to climb. There is no value in individuality from the perspective of the movers and shakers except for themselves.

We have lost sight of the naturally intended way of life, and society has done nothing but teach people how to fail utterly.

Before I go much further, I will leave my opinion here with this final statement; humanity was never meant to become self-aware, for it confuses self-awareness with delusions of grandeur or pitiful self-deprecation.

There is one word that can sum up the inequality of man. Can you guess it? It's a debatable and ambiguous answer perhaps, but the word I'm thinking of is simple and absolute. Let's look at humanity's treatment of others. You have societies where the murder and rape and burning of huts is allowed to be done to other groups of different background, nationality or belief. Atrocity to be committed by the upper castes of society on the lower castes. In fact there is so much of these occurrences and atrocity and unequal justice, that there is the need to stage and feign mock trials just to appease the watching eyes and press of the international community. One word.

Oh what were I thinking when posting this thread. I get this high and my ideas are just flowing out. There is no particular reason for it. When people can be together and help each other, things moves in the right direction but everyone have an own ego. That makes us split apart doesn't it?

- Turning a blind eye

- Underestimating one another

- Influence

Those are some i can think of right of the bat that create a vicious cycle or a downward spiral.

Something like that. A Christian teacher has said to me before that 'to serve God you must die to self.' Now, let me explain. This means that to serve you must get rid of your ego, or sense of self. Whether who you serve be God or man. For a nation or any group to truly prosper, humans must serve each other and not themselves. Putting the group above the individual, so to speak. Well, this is just my opinion anyways. Perhaps I am wrong, and the ego isn't the main problem.

To ask a person to not be self serving is to ask a person to stop being human. Self preservation is the law of nature.

- I can be stupid all by myself, I promise! I mean it's nice that everyone wants to be stupid with me, maybe...eh.
- I'm trying to cut back on exaggerating to less than a billion times a day, but I can't help it, it's so fun.
- Learning from the past shouldn't be necessary. Why not learn from fiction or by simply playing out situations in your head? To say that we learn from past mistakes means that mistakes are necessary, and they really aren't.
- My Little Pony fans everywhere will tell you all about how they still appreciate friendship.
- I'm really hoping that the naturally intended way of life is for me to take over the world.

USA were governing themselves for a few centuries. Look how it flourished.
While other civilizations that existed for thousands of years (and still exists right now) keep fucking themselves up. (e.g. S vs S relations)
Then, the same civilizations ask the USA to aid them handle their internal/external disputes.

It should be the other way around. The young bro should ask elder bro for help. Not the elder bro ask young bro for help.

Put in big perspective why has this world become like this?



Because we are now deep into what the Bible calls " The Last Days "

^ This.

But I would change it slightly: To ask a person to not be self serving is to ask a person to die. It isn't just humans that are self serving. It is all life. Life has to be self serving or it will not survive.

Take a pack of wolves and put them in a restrictive area with a smaller amount of prey. Unless the prey can reproduce faster than the wolves kill and eat them, they will die out entirely. Then the wolves will die out of starvation. They wolves aren't going to set up a preserve for the prey, so that it doesn't go extinct and can continue to provide food for the foreseeable wolf-future. They are going to eat them, because they need to eat to survive. The pack will fragment, and they will start killing each other over the food when it starts to become scarce. This is a pack animal. So, if a pack animal is self-serving, then why be a pack animal? Because, being part of the pack provides security for self and family. All living things are the same in this regard.
