The universe ordained that egocentrica mammalia exist as a unique species within the natural order. Long before the development of his egocentric identification, homo sapiens simply survived. He ate when hungry, drank when thirsty, copulated in season and died in ways similar to all other animal species. The unconscious drive to exist is the ultimate goal of existence in the universe and is pressed deep within the fatty gray matter of all sentient species.
Yet, unlike all other species, the universe also ordained that egocentrica mammalia live with full awareness of his future non-existence or âdeath.â
One could easily imagine the very moment egocentric mammalia located a âselfâ in his head and proclaimed,âaha! Itâs me!â the next thought mustâve been, âbut, I donât wanna die!â
Indeed, egocentric mammalia is the only species that is consciously aware of his eventual demise, which could happen at any time in his busy schedule. Hence, this results in a serious interior conflict subsequently magnifying the survival drive as a means of diminishing that conflict by short-circuiting the death drive. But, alas, to no availâ¦.
Inheriting an instinct to survive, while knowing he could drop dead any moment, has not allowed egocentric mammalia a momentâs peace since the very moment he discovered a âselfâ mulling about aimlessly in between his ears. All ego-centered brains were inadvertently cursed with centuries of unnecessary suffering simply because its egocentric ancestors, upon discovering a âselfâ flopping around in their heads, failed to inquire with âwhat the fook am âIâ doing in here?â Instead they became a chronically copulating tribe of selfish paranoid schizophrenics filling up their lives with abstract trivialities to avoid the brute fact of death.
Subsequently, modern egocentrica mammalians can do absolutely nothing to extinguish either one of these inherited circuits and both electrochemical currents reciprocally reinforce each other; survive-die, survive-die, etc, etc, etc, on and on, back and forth, ad nauseam.
This dualistic conflict has resulted in all sorts of mental and behavioral dysfunctions. Where in nature do you find âaddictions,â the problem of âobesityâ or the symptoms of âneurosesâ? Does a three-toed, tree sloth ever get âdepressedâ? Where in the natural order do we find a species that does not kill for food, but to terminate ânon-believersâ? Apparently, the âdie-surviveâ brain circuitry has resulted in egocentrics unconsciously rushing to their death by destroying the very habitat their existence requires, all the while believing it absolutely essential to do this to increase its chances of surviving. Die-survive, die-surviveâ¦
While the rest of the natural world simply lounges around, eating when hungry, drinking when thirsty, copulating in season, egocentrics scurry about engaging in the most spurious and meaningless activities to pack it all in before the reaper comes a knocking. Egocentrics even worry that they donât copulate enough and have numerous studies to prove it!
In addition, theyâve devised all manner of concepts for which to support their frightened hustle and bustle, all to give their brief and precarious existence âmeaning.â This serves to deny that everything that ends in death is meaningless simply because of that fact alone. Hence, the death instinct unconsciously motivates egocentrics simply because, if egocentric mammalia was forced to consider his finite brief existence every day, what would be the point of doing anything at all? What would be the point of pursuing happiness? Why not just lounge around, eat when hungry, drink when thirsty and copulate when the spirit moves you?
The chief role of egocentric mammalia in the natural order is to consume everything he can in the short time allotted; simply as a means to deny awareness that his allotted time is so obviously short. It seems apparent (except to egocentrics) that all the useless sheit they feel they must constantly do actually does little more than make their short time a total hell on earth. For instance, does nature worry about making constructive use of its time by implementing effective time management strategies?
Yet, itâs easy to see how the alternating currents of death and survival (or what some call âlifeâ
must result in the invention of all sorts of symbolic meanings. Egocentrics demand that the âself,â mulling around aimlessly in their heads, mean something to the universe, different from cats, dogs, chickens, goats, horses, tree sloths, etc, etc. As egocentrics see it, the natural world means nothing to the grand scheme of the universe, else why wouldnât the rest of nature not also have a âselfâ mulling around aimlessly in their heads, gritting and grinding over the lack of time to engage in useless activities that have no point?
Nevertheless, it does seem that these other species quite fully sense that they mean nothing to the universe, since they arenât running around obsessively copulating as a means to pursuing happiness. They arenât gnashing their teeth over the injustices of the universal order of things, demanding the "freedom" to make useless choices that only pile on more suffering. They arenât inventing vacuous empty concepts to give their lives meaning, simply because the universe has not provided them the grey matter for such tasks.
Egocentric mammalia has a billion meanings in his head, most of which tend to cancel out and contradict one another, resulting in a helter skelter hodgepodge of tenuous truths, supported by dubious justifications and easily smashed to smithereens with barely any effort at all. Nevertheless, this constant train crash of meanings makes the egocentric world look rather mad (except to an egocentric) in comparison with the rest of the universal order of things.
The rest of the natural world appears to have accepted the fact that it has no free-will, which seems to allow it a sense of peace and harmony with the natural order of things, even in the face of painful death and natural disasters. Egocentrics must anxiously grit and grind over the unending need to protect, at all costs, their highly symbolic, but hilariously brief, existence, because they believe they can control and direct the natural order.
Egocentrics demand freedom of choice, in complete denial that the universe has totally denied them free-will from the very moment they were conceived since, obviously, their conception was not up for a vote and neither will they vote on their death. What was provided to egocentric mammalians was the delusion of choice and all the suffering that attends it and they did not vote for their suffering either, but constantly complain that they want less of it which, paradoxically, seems to give them more.
So they invent concepts like God, karma, sin, morality, commandments, laws, rules, values, governments, compassion, peace, love, etc, etc, etc, to increase suffering by reinforcing, not only their choices, but their âGod given rightâ to make choices by asserting their âGod given free-willâ from a universe that clearly does not give a ratâs arse about what any individual egocentric wants or desires.
Nature has never experienced free-will. But the universe provided egocentric mammalians with a highly advanced nervous system for which to delude a âself,â into allowing the continual invention of symbolic meanings that provides an illusion of free-will, causing egocentrics to actually believe they have âcontrolâ over the destiny that the universe provides simply by allowing egocentrics to exist in the first place.
As the ancient parable states, like a drop of water in an ocean, egocentric mammalia has lost awareness of the ocean and believes he has the free-will to direct his own individual course, while the ocean simply takes him wherever it will regardless of his delusion of having control.
Egocentrica mammalia proudly proclaims, âI did that!â in complete ignorance of his place in the natural order of things.
Can you hear the universe laughing?
Yet, we cannot forget that the free-will delusion of egocentric mammalia is universally ordained as well. Try this little experiment:
Allow the subjectivity of your identified egocentric âselfâ to becomeâ¦
Bet you canât do it.
But it does seem there are a few who can hear the universe laughingâ¦.
