TO BE ALIVE IS TO BE UNIQUE
Imagine the "SUPERIORS," beings with capabilities we only can dream of.
The Superiors are gigantic and move through interstellar space as if it
Let us imagine that the Superiors discovered us, the humans. It would not
be a surprise if the Superiors saw us as instinctive beings almost identical
to each other, as beings that understand the world from a kind of simple,
The Superiors do not ask themselves ethical questions when using us in
ways most useful to them... like guinea pigs, food, clothing,
But, here on our small planet Earth, we know that it is from an "I" distinct
to everyone and everything, that each human interacts with the world. A
sunny or a rainy day is a unique experience for each one of us.
Science says that, like all animals, humans are the result of a development
from elementary forms of life. It is then not illogical to conclude, that the
sense of "I" in a stream of consciousness already existed in those
elemental organisms from which it gradually developed - and it did not
appear suddenly or by chance in humans. Thus, each living entity senses
its own form of "I".
To be alive is to be unique.
Without that individuality of being alive, there would be no drive to survive and reproduce.
We, humans, tend to behave like the Superiors.
