I found this on another forum I frequent, no it's not OWNZ, it's a game specific forum. it got me thinking so I thought I would share it with all my friends here.
You... what are you? Why are you? You are a human, evolution of monkeys, destined ruler of Earth.
Is it that easy? What are we? Why are we?
We were granted life, a flourishing planet. What do we do with it? We kill for food, fun and because we are told to. We rip up the forests for furniture and housing even though we have the technology to create substitute materials of waste.
Every other creature on Earth lives in harmony with each other. Except for us. We take control of an area, multiply and multiply, draining every natural resource in the area.
Is it really a good thing that we were given control? That we were given birth? Are we really as intelligent as we think we are? Are you? Your next? Your last?
Do we deserve this? Deserve what we were given? Look at our history. War... destruction... sorrow... pain... Does the good things we have done make up for all this? What is "good"? What is "bad"? Is war really bad?
During WWII our technological science went skyhigh. Then again, do we need all this technology? Do we need to know wether we are alone in the universe or not? Do we need to know how light functions? Why do we ask questions? Why don't we accept everything as it is?
Einstein said that he didn't know what WWIII would be fought with, but that WWIV would be fought with sticks and stones.
Humanity. We are an incomplete creation. We are fragile and weak. Yet we rule Earth. Proof that the mind wins, it is. The strength of the mammoths, the speed of the sabertoothtigers. Yet we won. We survived the Iceage. How? Why? Is there a reason? Does there need to be?
Most would answer "peace" in a question of wether they want war or peace. But without war, peace would have no meaning. Without pain there can't be pleasure. Without one we can't have the other. Utopia is beyond our grasp. Yet people fight for peace. Oh the irony.
Weapons. Tools of power. Tools of dominance. The Ziggurat of our race. Our pride, our power. We couldn't have survived without them, yet people condemn them.
Hate, love. Feelings. Just feelings... are your feelings important? Someone kills a friend of yours, would you swear revenge? Would you kill for a feeling? The loss of a friend, someone who shared your thoughts, your views and your feelings. Would you kill for the loss of someone like that?
The hate resides in you. Succumb to it you will.
Imperfection. Human. Synonym? Fear the unknown.
Music. Melody. Song. Tune. They wake our feelings. Emphasizing them.
We are all different. That's what makes us human. But difference is also condemned. Most would not kill a human. Most want to make money, get a family, a home, and live their life. Others can't take the boredom. They want to break limits. Humans we all are, yet we hate those who are different.
If ignorance is bliss and we live in the age of ignorance, why is there so much sorrow and pain?
Blinded by religion and opinions. Divided by language. Split by borders and governments. We are still the same. Humans we all are, noone can take that away from us. We are our own masters, wether anyone tells us otherwise. You have to live your life, for it is yours and yours only. Your future is yours to make.
God didn't create humans, humans created God.
what do you think?
