To do that always requires to veer off topic in philosophy;
otherwise new learning is not possible.
Interesting, to me; that no one has brought up the embryonic development of human beings in the similarities that are there between other mammals as well as the similarities that the human embryo goes through in development that mirrors the gills of fish that are far removed from mammals
IN A TOTALLY DIFFERENT
CLASS OF ZOOLOGY CLASSIFICATION.
THAT is most definitely evidence of common ancestry;
and common ancestry, in common sense terms, is evolution; when THAT is associated with totally different CLASSES OF ANIMALS.
Case closed there; as the evidence is clear AND PRESENT, NOW.
HOWEVER; that does NOT, in terms of the eyes of science that is available around 3500 years ago, to use as reference, negate the clues in the Old T biblical text that Humans are made FROM clay. There are no ‘eyes’ big enough to see the dust of outer-space THEN BUT never the less even Carl Sagan comes to the conclusion that we are made of STAR STUFF.
THAT’S BIG PICTURE STUFF. The same big picture stuff of looking all around nature ON EARTH AND SKY AND OCEAN to see all the similar patterns to know we are all one together as part of this whole big thingy NAMED as life, animate and inanimate; and both dirt AND flesh and blood is required for human life.
That truly doesn’t take eyes of science to know in big picture thinking.
To say we come from clay in big picture thinking is the same to say we come from star stuff with telescopes to aid those human eyes of then.
Never the less, above so below , inside outside, and all around applies to philosophy, religion, science, and even politics, believe that or not.
But it requires far more than detail small picture thinking to see THAT big picture.
Poets who write
the bible CAN
picture; but that
the fundamentalist thinking systemizing scientists folks then,
as ‘personality type’ too,
scratching their head, calling fowl;
when what underlies their biology is both fish
birds; in other words seeing leaves and no trees.
Truly that is advanced human intelligence;
wHere the details are more or less, just parts of
trueR FULLER human
To wonder is to live and carry on in joy.
To get stuck in details, is well, from what Einstein terms as insanity; JUST THAT.
AND from a common sense perspective I can show the lonely boys here how to meet girls, IF they only learn how to move in grace; as that intelligence is truly required in non-verbal ways to attract graceful women.
Athletes learn to move gracefully by the requirements of basketball and football and such as that; and with THAT comes greater non-verbal intelligence, where humans respond to THAT at rates of 60 to 90 percent, over verbal language.
To walk in a straight line and never raise one’s arms up is to become just another definition of Einstein, and have a really hard time connecting to the opposite sex; or perhaps the same sex too; although I am not versed in THAT; I will think that it does apply though; with BIG PICTURE THINKING.
ANA, HAS BIG picture thinking; and yes there is great trial and error associated with that and failure; but the successes associated with big picture thinking are beyond belief for detail thinkers as HISTORY
OVER AND OVER
FOR TRULY EVOLVED HUMANS,
IN JUST ONE LIFETIME,
THROUGH the kind of positive epigenetics that are the difference between reproductive success OR NOT;
PARTICULARLY in the world we live in today; where the challenges are GREATER AND THE WILLINGNESS
TO CHANGE TO MEET THOSE CHALLENGES
over the longest term
of existence; that is NOW.
And truly that is both the greatest
big picture thinking
the hardest of most
FOLKS to realize that
NOW IS ALL THAT EXISTS.
WHEN one lives life in THAT way
AWAY from the illusions of past and present; including Standard IQ ways of thinking;
And tHere is a song for that where a young lady decides to get married to the nature of all that is GOD rather than just one young man alone…
To actually feel that connection of
Oneness with all that is
GOD over and above
BE ALONE AND
always be ALLONE.
With BIG PICTURE THINKING
that moves far beyond words alone;
life becomes EXTRA COOL,
ALL THE TIME FOR NOW AS ONE CAN SEE MUCH FURTHER, THAN SCIENCE ALONE IN systemizing ways of thinking in written words, math, and science, alone;
Same as in biblical times; SAME AS NOW; AS BOTH ARE NOW.
The empire is GOD and we all just a part of that butWHOLE AT THE SAME TIME
THAT IS NOW AND never ever lonely when FULLY FEELING THAT beyond words as written,
WAY OF ALL;
and human inventions.
There is classical evolution that occurs very slowly, and ‘epigenetics'; where and when, greater potential of DNA is unpacked and expanded in potential, in just one lifetime,
OR never unlocked and narrowed, in potential, depending on the challenges of the environment, and how one responds in either negative or positive adaptation.
And yes, human culture in all the colors it comes
in from written language to collective intelligence,
recorded as such,
to all the material byproducts of culture,
are examples of either negative or positive
epigenetic measurable effects that exist as is,
per human evolved existence, for now.
The problem in this type of evolution, per epigenetics, in one generation of living, is knowing if the change produced for adaption, is truly positive or negative.
While a person may escape their general anxiety watching TV;
on the other hand, they may lose non-verbal intelligence
in real flesh and blood communication,
by rarely actually going through the flesh and blood
PHYSICAL motions to enhance this type of intelligence,
and of course, the same applies to all ‘screen addictions’.
Regulation of emotions and integration of senses does not happen, unless a person increases their physical intelligence, as a physical body moving through distance and space,
AS THAT IS where emotions and senses
exist in the human condition;
yes, in the physical body.
TV takes one out of mindful awareness to a world directed by someone else and actors other than self in a play of life that is virtual reality input, instead of the output of
developing mindful awareness in the physical intelligence of regulating emotions, integrating senses; and increasing cognitive executive functioning,
additionally, through greater
focus and short term working memory.
And of course, the other examples are myriad,
in either negative or positive effect and impact,
ranging from screen addictions
to free flow of processed sugary and fatty food,
TO THE destruction of the only home we have
that is the environment of the earth, as whole.
Yes, all things culture are a byproduct
of the classical evolution
that through slow process
leads to what we see
as intelligent human beings,
some 12 thousand years or so ago.
Humans are the same in evolutionary terms
to no significant difference, other than measurable bone density losses,
among so-called civilized ‘smarter human beings today’ as compared to their ancestors 12 thousands years ago, and the people who still live a life of movement and challenge in physical intelligence,
to equal that most important type of intelligence that humans are naturally evolved for. But as in all things nature;
BETTER to be able to move freely with multi-directional legs, than have to use a cart with wheels at Super Walmart; but one often sees grossly overweight 30-year old or so adults,
already relying on the cultural wheel that has replaced the common sense of a lifetime; in healthy movement and a ‘foraging diet’ that does not often include ‘all one can eat buffets’.
Humans, are naturally classically evolved for intermittent gratification. Instant gratification is most definitely an overall negative epigenetic byproduct of adaptation to change in just one lifetime; thanks or no thanks to abstract written language, collective intelligence, and back to the byproducts of that instant gratification, in real time, now.
Truly there is nothing new but a mix of what already is, as Nature, NOW.
The problem is, is it positive or negative in epigenetic effect and impact.
Sometimes the greatest so-called luxuries of culture,
can be tainted with metaphorical hemlock to the death of negative epigenetic impact,
over the course of a much shorter potential lifetime.
It’s give or take; sanitation as the greatest
epigenetic invention; and perhaps
home entertainment as an
early nail in a coffin,
per negative epigenetic change
to the adaption of being lazy,
instead of even living life as it
IS CLASSICALLY EVOLVED TO BE,
OF A REST DAY GRANTED
OVER THE NECESSITY FOR SURVIVAL,
IN TERMS OF CLASSICAL EVOLUTION.
To understand how one is evolved by looking to nature and human nature, is the possibility have having a much greater life, in all ways that comes in for now.
To not listen to the innate instinct and intuition that lives within one, before negative epigenetic influences in byproducts of human culture, drive one to an early death;
is the potential of just that;
a shorter life with lower quality of life, overall.
To make life easier with human wheels
is also a potential shorter life,
in ever being all one can be in much greater physical intelligence.
So it truly becomes a matter of be careful what one wishes for.
Sometimes the greatest dreams of now;
BECOMES the nightmares of tomorrow; when fully realized, WHAT THOSE DREAMS TRULY ARE IN TERMS OF NEGATIVE OR POSITIVE, OVERALL, HUMAN EPIGENETIC EFFECT, AND IMPACT, IN JUST ONE LIFETIME, NOW;
THAT TRULY IS WHAT COUNTS ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS; for those who still EVEN HAVE THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND THAT with A REFERENCE POINT OF higher potential human intelligence; particularly, imaginative and creative PHYSICAL INTELLIGENCE, IN STEP ONE OF EVEN LIVING ‘LIVE’, AT THE BOTTOM OF THE hierarchy of MASLOW’S PYRAMID OF HUMAN BASIC INNATE NEEDS, MET OR NOT.
And back to religious terms per new testament text; THE VINE that is described in the NEW T, per original Mesopotamia text, before translated to Greek, means THE TREE OF LIFE; as opposed to ‘The Tree of Knowledge’ in OLD T TEXT; The Tree OF LIFE IS what humans are classically evolved for; whereas the Tree of KNOWLEDGE are the epigenetic changes for adaptation in one lifetime; particularly all the
of culture; again,
ranging from written
human language to frigging nuclear bombs;
Yes, HUMAN BEING culture can be a huge and ever expanding virus of human epigenetic effect and impact
THAT GOES BOOM! POOF!
FOR all we know; there may be another so-called intelligent group of ET beings who at this point in time are about to do something we have no clue about that will end or start the whole Universe again like PRESTO; NOW, FOR THOSE who think they know it all; IN potential, they truly know little to nothing at all;
And truly screen addictions and all one can eat buffets spells the true intelligence of what humans know verseS what they even
frigging are, as evolved animals NOW.
YES; TRULY ‘WE’ NEED TO RE-EVOLVE THE HUMAN BEING FIRST, WITH THE ‘TREE OF LIFE’, AS NATURALLY CLASSICaLLY EVOLVED; closer to innate instinctual and intuitive ALLONE eyes of GOD OF NATURE; instead of eyes of culture, ALONE, IN A FAUX ‘TREE OF KNOWLEDGE’.
So in other words, ‘BEFORE THE APPLE’, IS THE TRUTH AND LIGHT OF HUMAN BEING.
