Id like to start up a discussion with anyone who is interested: Id want to present a few of my ideas on how our society evolved to its point, and how drugs play a role.
I think most of our society is based off of the raw aggresion for males. Looking at it by operational conditioning, if a male is aggressive for its family, it is rewarded with having food that was killed by the male, or rewarded with good feelings from all. I think a society based on agression is doomed to fail, i believe we are doomed to fail, to kill ourselves off since we have have no natural preditors as of right now. Drugs help us to remember and explore societal ideas that arent based on agression, since thats the mode of thought we would have normally. What do you guys think?
Also, in terms of an alien infestation ( i know random ), i believe that drugs are windows into other forms of perception, but what if the very drugs we used were actually alien species that werwe carried here by a asteroid years ago?
just interesting to speculate.
"Human suffering has been caused because all too many of us cannot grasp that words are only tools for our use, and that the mere presence of a word in the dictionary does not mean it necessarily refers to something definitive in the real world"
--Richard Dawkins, "The Selfish Gene"
"It is the mind which creates the world about us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours."
"Without a firm idea of himself and the purpose of his life, man cannot live, and would sooner destroy himself than remain on earth, even if he was surrounded by bread."
your thread is so simple, it has been overlooked. when you talked about aggression in males, this to some extent is a natural process, we must kill to eat, and eat to survive. It has been impurified in today's society, we are not in our natural environment anymore, think of it as the rainforest being torn down, every animal will eventually die. the rise of ego ( fall of the rainforest ), from a philosophical standpoint is a slow process that can still be corrected, our inflated ego's have caused this now unatural aggressiveness in males and is reflected in the physical battles among us ( war ), and unless everyone realizes and corrects this, bang!
