GONE FOREVER: HOW LONG BEFORE WE ARE EXTINCT AS HUMANS

“And then it was us.”


DISAPPEARING

Species of living creatures have been rapidly declining over the planet. As a matter of fact, 99.9 percent of every living things has already become extinct. So the fact that there are so many people on this planet consuming so many resources that we haven’t run out is a miracle. But one reason why we as people are able to sustain is because of scientifically modified crops and livestock. Unlike any other species, we are able to engineer food for ourselves. But with technology increasing to scale, everything around us is shrinking, meaning smaller populations. So man will hit a point where our numbers will begin to decline. But will we vanish completely before the big asteroid hits us or the sun envelopes the Earth.

HOW DO WE LEAVE

One obvious way in which we vanish is through war. Now, the reason this quickly gets ruled out is because the world powers would immediately step in to keep that from happening. Now that leaves a few other scenarios. One of which is extraterrestrial, and I strongly disagree with aliens taking out the human species from space through an invasion. But there are some viable ways that humanity could become extinct.

  • FAMINE
    • An extreme shortage of food could lead to the end of mankind. Especially if we get to a place where people start to consume like Americas. We would need at least four planet Earths if everyone lived like Americans. There have already been initiatives to save lives of people impacted by famine in places like the continent of Africa, or other times in history whether it was in Latin America, Europe, or the far east.

  • VIRUS
    • This is the next deadly end of humanity. And might be even more detrimental than famine. And it’s because we have no cures for viruses because viruses are so similar to the host cell membrane. That means that a lot viruses could very well have been ancient illnesses that man escaped some how in the past reintroducing themselves now. HIV, Herpes, Ebola, and Hepatitis B could have been around going back during our strong evolutionary stages. Just imagine if HIV were to adapt and become contagious like the cold flu, the trouble man would be in on this planet.

  • CHEMICAL
    • We never really think of a chemical end, but look at what happened in Chernobyl in Russia. That whole entire area is so radioactive that it will take many many years before humanity can live there again. Depending on some nuclear material, people have to stay away from certain places for 3,000 – 20,000 years. You’re talking a massive amount of time where you don’t even know that humans lived here.

  • CLIMATE
    • The climate shift could put us in a weird position as humans. Because polar ice is already melting causing sea levels to rise. But also, there are believed to be ancient illnesses locked in the ice that predate man. These could be set free triggering a problem bigger than the AIDS epidemic. Also, you’re talking animals that we depend on as a source of food could die off from the unpredictability of the climate or drinking from diseased waters.

  • ASTEROID
    • The last of the disasters could be the big one. The one that we have always been afraid of, and that is the big rock. This would kill everything, not even bacteria could survive. You’re talking the end of Earth as we know it, forever. These are leftovers from the original big bang, including meteorites and comets. And they can vary in size to very tiny to hundreds of miles across.

WHAT DO WEN DO

So what do we do, well, the answer is nothing really. The asteroid is the most helpless event that could happen. If it hits that’s it, we’re done. But the others we have some sort of control over. It is not too late to stop dumping chemicals, keeping the climate in alliance with where it should be, protect ourselves from viruses, and decrease famine. The choice is ours, and with the direction we’re currently going, we are becoming a more conscious human species. Only thing is, will it last.

TRUE IN MY MIND: HOW THE MIND EVOLVED TO MAKE US THINK ALL FEELINGS MEAN SOMETHING

Related image

“It was put there, must mean something.”


INTRODUCTION

We all have feelings, that is not ground breaking to hear, but what about the meaning behind the feeling. Just because we as humans have evolved to have a feeling does not always mean it should have a purpose in society. There are so many feelings that we have as people that should not present themselves in life. And you would think I was talking about the crimes that some people commit. No, I’m referring to how we view the world around us. No one wants to think that how they feel means nothing, so we all have our individual ways.

PROCESS OF ELIMINATION

The way in which we sustain a civilization is being able to decipher what feelings in our society mean something. Because feelings are one thing, but there need to be a logical view on how the world should operate. Because feelings change on a daily, but there need to be something more resolute in the way we live. Meaning, if we create laws that will benefit the masses, it is intended to be a rational decision. If feelings come into play, then what you will have is an emotional society, which causes chaos. So you start with the most important aspects of life, then scale back from there.

WHY WE HAVE THEM?

A potential reason why we have feelings is to make us compassionate toward our own species for our survival. We have more respect and love when it’s toward something we see ourselves apart of in life. So we see another human hurt it brings about this humanity. And from that humanity we help because then again, we would like someone to do it for us. These feelings we have are real, not saying they aren’t, but were we given them to hold against each other in society, or was it something else. Because as much as I said before about them having meaning, we need them. We need compassion, but too much feeling ruin a civilization. Which is why I think America could be in trouble because everyone’s feelings must be taken into consideration. And if that’s the case, with 323 million people, you are bringing into the consideration a skewed view as well.

AGE OF DEPRESSION: HOW THE MORE WE UNDERSTAND SELF THE MORE UNHAPPY WE BECOME

black-and-white, depressed, depression

“In an era of technology, we are more connected, yet very much detached.”


In a world where we are more connected than anytime before, you would think it would make us happier. Yet it has not only made us happier, but the more we learn and understand ourselves the more depressed we become. And I don’t mean know ourselves like knowing me as an adult. I mean knowing us is it pertains to our existence on Earth. You would think with the advent of technological innovation and scientific breakthroughs, we would have a much higher level of enlightenment that would make us happy. But what that heightened awareness has done is give us the complete opposite effect. But should we digress because of this unintended effect?

View of Tourist Resort Well, let’s first look at what makes us depressed in today’s society. There are many different reasons why people tend to be unhappy. For starters, you are able to see up close your reality. And what I mean by your reality, you can see where you stand financially, socially, academically in the world. For example, you can Google image luxury, and see a world that is beyond your world just by typing it into a search engine. When my mother was young, an opulent life existed, yet you didn’t quite know about it. Clear Wine Glasses in a RowPeople were either born into wealth, or it was something you stumbled upon. Not today, today, you can actually see how little you have relative to someone else. And what’s crazy, you might have a socioeconomic position that is supporting you and your family. Yet you can’t enjoy because you are comparing yourself to someone way above you.

Why do we do it? Why do we look to someone that is far beyond us? Well, at times, that person is our age. No matter your age today, there is someone that age doing something on a more monumental scale than yourself. When I was in college, I was broke coming out, yet guys my age were signing multi-million dollar contracts to play sports. Comparing yourself to them and not appreciating what you have, even when what you have is adequate to live, robs you of gratification Image result for comparison peopleand the ability to live a fulfilling life. Meaning, you might want to make $50,000 in a year, but someone tells you, you should want better. Now you can’t enjoy what life you could have had with what you wanted because you’re chasing something you may not even want just to satisfy other people’s perspective. And with our lives being inundated with so much imagery, we still have another aspect of our lives that make us unhappy: our own existence.

Coping with our existence is tough for so many. And I don’t mean existence in the context of waking and going to work everyday, coming home, and sleeping. I mean the fact that we are here, on Earth, living and breathing. The fact that I was not born a lion, tiger, bird, or a house cat, but a human is hard for many to cope with in life. The simple existence that is me, a carbon based life form that has Related imagetaken forever to evolve into what I am, is hard to accept. And a lot of it comes from increased scientific understanding of ourselves. Here is where religion may have aided us in living on this planet. With the idea that there is something greater once we die, it gives us hope. As time progress in society, more and more people are becoming awoken to our existence. So awake, we are unmotivated to do anything. So now we become depressed with the idea that this is all that is here for us.

You would think that feeling this way would give people a sense of urgency, yet it’s having the inverse effects. The closer we come to figuring out why we are on Earth, the more we become detached from living. Maybe not knowing, is what’s best at times. Because in the end, unlike any other species where nature dictates how they behave, we are given conscious. We are given the ability to say yes or say no. We are endowed with the ability to make sound decisions. And that very conscious that gives us that ability also makes us aware of our situations in life. Some people make the best out of it, and others can never cope. And for those that can’t cope, it leads to further depression; leading to substance abuse or even suicide.

“He who increases knowledge, increases sorrow on the land.”

CRACKING THE AGE OF MAN: WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT

Image result for oldest HUMAN found

“The interesting look into the human species.”


Scientist have recently found the oldest human remains in Morocco that date back some 300,000 years ago. Up until now one of the oldest sites was in present day Ethiopia. And there are a lot of questions being raised that go back in time. But I now have a few theories of my own regarding ancient history of humans. And my theory is maybe we didn’t just evolve in Ethiopia and spread out over the world. Maybe we were evolving at different parts of the world and we all share a common DNA link. Because would this mean that life for humans originated in present day Morocco. Because the bones in Ethiopia are 100,000 years younger.

And if this is all true, what does this say about human evolution. I wonder will anymore bones be found that go back even further in human history. Or will we find out that the Earth may be older as well. We as people have so much about the world that we don’t know about. We’re so wrapped up in Image result for oldest human foundthe constructs of what man has created, that we lose sight of the nature aspects of life. Nature aspects such as how we managed to figure ways to populate ourselves. Sexual procreation is something we know and just do. But did we know that then. How expansive was our human minds? Or was it something that nature put in us to just do and we didn’t think to understand why. Kind of like any other species. They don’t know they are procreating they just do it.

But, I have another question regarding the age of man. If scientist keep finding remains that are older and older, what will this do to the faith base in society. See, the belief in a deity is from faith. There is nothing tangible Close Up Photo Of Holy Biblethat points to anything spiritual as the creation of man. Yet science has always been the obliteration of religion. Because the more we learn about our human existence, the less religion has relevance in society. For hundreds of years, there has been a clash between the science community and the religious community. And this is a fight that does not look to be slowing down anytime soon.

In the end, the findings of scientist have left us as humans baffled for centuries. And will continue to leave people baffled the more we find out. I read somewhere one time that asteroids carry cells made possible for life to evolve. Could it be that we find out that humans are the real aliens. Maybe this planet was not mean’t to support us. That in itself would have so many implications as to the age of man. Because asteroids are leftover rock from the Big Bang, which is believed to have created our universe. Maybe, just maybe there is life in another universe. But, the more we research the more we will learn.
