You buy a computer but you don't read the manual, same with a car or a DVD player. Yet you know how to use it. Isn't it strange we can use all this technology without manuals but the one thing (ourselves) we really need a manual for, we don't have. That is because humans are unpredictable and so diverse, no manual could possibly be sufficient. Or it would have to be millions of pages and impossible to follow.
Some say this thing called the Bible is a manual, but look where following that *human* book gets us; wars, intolerance, ignorance, abusiveness, racism and many other failures of human nature. I think it was an attempt at some sort of guide book but it's just so outdated and was written by people that understood A LOT less about humanity than the typical person knows now. Yes this post ended up being a crack on Christianity, but I'm sure you won't mind Qualeshia.


Doesn't bother me.

If only we came with instructions when we were born. If only we knew our ultimate purpose in life, then it would be easier to understand our lives, and live our lives by that purpose. It seems like society and culture tries to bring a purpose for us. But not everybody can fit in and follow it. In the end, trust your human instincts and learn from it.

I would love it if humans came with a instruction book.

I get what people are saying but understanding how humanity works is challenging. What makes it worst is that we are still learning about ourselves.
