“We are luminous beings. We are perceivers. We are an awareness. We are not objects. We have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We or rather our reasons, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in a lifetime. We are perceivers. The world that we perceive though is an illusion. It was created by a description that was told to us since the moment we were born.” ~ Don Juan to Castenada
We are everything biology is, plus technology, language, politics, philosophy, art, so forth and so on. So suddenly human beings become important, not mere cosmic witnesses, to a meaningless cosmos, but the cutting edge of a cosmos that glories in order and is moving towards higher states of order and at the present moment, we are the carriers, once it was the volcanic processes that shape this planet, once it was the life of the early oceans, once it was the great dinosaurs, but today Humanity represents the cutting edge of complexity and this process of moving towards complexifacation. What is mans purpose?
To advance and preserve novelty, this is an ethical position, it means you don’t replace rainforests with pastures, you don’t censor books, you don’t lean on people to make gender choices different from yours. No, the purpose of being
a human is to complexify reality even more, to hand on a more diverse, more complicated, more multifaceted seeking universe to our children. Terence McKenna ~
