human ancestors do not include monkeys
who humans the species are has nothing at all to do with your list of reading material
you are essentially a hybrid composed of a soul and a body. the above is addressing the soul.
You look really cute. I love meerkats LOL. thanks for the share .
What you say I am essentially composed of is what I assume you apply to all humans.
One of the two of us know much less of what we are talking about than the other.
Okay right there is a good place to start.
That mind, soul, body connection.
Who you are, your existence as it unfolds is intimately bound to your body.
Beautiful, or ugly, healthy or mangled and all the shades in-between.
All we know and think is intimately bound to what we can touch and feel and taste
first interacts with your body and what its projecting and what it’s open to.
We are today the sum total of all the days that came before,
and this reaches way beyond our individual lives,
down through our blood line and the evolutionary stream to beyond when blood even existed.
Our living body is a constant exchange of molecules and neural signals, then we die.
Okay fine, you could say,
Energy doesn’t disappear but only transforms itself,
Our spirits are released from the bonds of our bodies,
free to float up into eternity and for some the gates of heaven.
But, then what are you going to do without your body?
What are you going to do without a brain to process incoming stimulation and information?
How are you going to relate to your loved ones who neither possess a body?
Weird little mysteries like that once to start thinking about them pile up until your heaven story is an avalanche of nonsense.
It’s easy to cling to such things, the child needs it’s security blanket and many humans never outgrow their childhood.
Nothing even wrong with it,
but for God sake at least be grown up enough to acknowledge that it is your particular security blanket
and not some self-certain totalitarian dogma.
