do you believe you are the top of the earth?
    #3805545 - 02/20/05 02:43 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

wether or not you believe in evolution, or creation by divine force, whatever, do you believe you, as a human, are rulers of the earth? above other life such as rats and birds, more inteligent? more powerful? more meaningful? more evolved?

discuss.

Well, All forces are infinate, they don't cancell each other out, they change each other. Energy is never destroyed. It simply shifts. Energy is not the ability to do work, but it is change.


If I swing a pendulum, it will go back and forth pushing air and the pendulum will stop by the air. But the air will carry the motion till it is absorbed by something else. And so the energy travels eventually effecting the planet, then the solar system and continues to effect (on a TINY scale, but it does) the equation of the whole cosmos in throughout time, spreading the chain reaction of change for ever and ever.

Your statement is not incorrect about there being always a stronger force. There are infinately stronger or bigger changes happenning as there are infinately smaller ones as well. Each change is a ripple through the whole cosmos effecting things on an immesurable scale. It is infinately macro as it is micro. In such an exsistance, there in reality is no end and thus no measurement. There is nothing for anything to be able to be compaired to. Thus everything is infinately equal or annother way to say it is "everything is equal in it's infinity"

All things infinate and thus equal. I may be able to shake matter with my voice, but who says that we aren't microscopic being shaken by humungus forces so big that we don't feel them in our time frame? Also, it is important to know that all things are one and would not exsist together if they were separate. There is certainly one universe and that one is infinate, so the number one doesn't even exsist. This is why I see God as exsistance itself and why I Love the puzzle of exsistance, because it is fun.

no

we have our place, but we are as special and as full of meaning as anything else.

In some ways we hold power and charge of stewardship - we aren't doing too well so far though! We all need each other and life itself is the magic, not humanity. Life will throw up new hominids just like that if need be.

Well it looks like I'm alone here when I say that yes, I belief earth is simply a place for humans to reside. Existence without humans is a futile, asinine existence. The earth exists for us, the universe exists for our exploration. We are the only truly conscious beings and therefore we are at the top.

Don't get me wrong, I love animals. But in 300 years animals are going to be viewed alot differently, esepcially once any or all transhumanist events happen. Animals are nice but they are not neccesary. That doesn't mean I want to kill animals ( I don't even like to hunt) but I seriously believe they have no use. They are just fragments on the hard drive of life, waiting to be defragged.

We have certainly accomplished much, as just one example, were the first organism to make it to space. I would say our intelligence and cooperation allows us to do great things, but I wouldn't say we rule the world. We may think we do :wink:
