greatest human achievement?
    #1622952 - 06/10/03 04:03 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

In your opinion, what is humankind's greatest achievement thus far? Is it the creation of art, languages, mathematics, alcohol?

I believe music demonstrates our capabilities as human beings. The fact that we can arrange various noises to create something pleasing to the ear, as well as express emotion through a "universal language" is quite impressive.

your right with music... I believe one day a person will be born.. who can attach images to their voice when they sing.. then communication will reach the next level of evolution... imagine a voice... that transfers emotion.. laguage.. and images..

just imagine

reality is the part of the imaginatio we all agree on

Quite hard to say. I would like to say the achievement the Buddha had; enlightenment, yet it wasn't a achievement as a whole. I would say dance, it is a universal type of language, and is a sort of meditation in itself. Almost all cultures have their own variation of dance.

writing is the greastest human achievement in my opinion, without it we'd be nowhere. if there was no documentation we would not be able to study anything or keep any kind of accurate records.

i tell you what, fuck any and all achievements, until we achieve the one big goal we are all here to accomplish, which is peace.

other than that, a good achievement was the founding of marijuana, LSD is cool too, but the world aint shit without pot and everybody knows it.

So until we accomplish peace, we should not drive our cars, enjoy a hot shower, eat cooked food, take medicine, wear clothes, play with our toys, communicate via telephone or the internet, etc.

Now I SEE where you are coming from. It is all clear to me now, brother KM.

well, we have what is called free will.  So if thats what you would like to do with your life, go for it.  If you think you see where im coming from, you have to look with your heart, not your anus. :grin: :grin:

I think the evolution of language and the invention of the transistor are the two most amazing things we've done so far :smile:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

and here i was thinking that space travel was one of our greatest achievements. this will gradually become more and more important as "we" degrade this planet further and further.
