Imagine, if you will... Humanity suffered a "fall from grace". In Atlantean times ,where we fell to the dark depths of lower consciousness in that our minds separated in terms of awareness from the conscious and subconscious.This pattern of "sleeping" and "waking" are phenomenon of the procession of the equinoxes over huge tracks of time in a cosmic cycle. The Fall and the Garden of Eden are perhaps an indication of that, perhaps metaphorically. If you consider that the more consciously aware we are, the more alive we feel and the more unconsciously we live our lives the less alive we truly are. If you also consider that , according to some scientists, that we can only presume when we, or others, are actually truly conscious. How can consciousness e proved? If what we consider "reality" to be what our senses tell us, how are we to take consciousness as an absolute? Our senses, as compared to other animals, are very limited. Yes, it is true that our species is in fact highly "advanced", if you consider the form and function of our bodies, and the human brain. With billions of neurons running through our rains, we are ale to hold countless experiences, call on memory at the flip of a switch. Every detail, of every single day, is stored within our minds. Every color you see, every shape, and every smell, taste, etc. Everything is stored on the hard drive that is our brain. Just imagine, though, what if there were senses we were without? Or perhaps a sense that was somehow "damaged"? There are many things that may be visible to us, yet our missing and/or damaged senses, forbid this. but how/why could this be? Anything I state here is mere speculation, of course. And some of my figures may be lacking. Yet the question remains: Are we TRULY how we are meant to be? Could there be more? Sorry, this is very random, I know. But the mind is a wondrous thing. Random things like this just come out of thin air, it would appear. I can't shut my mind down for even as moment. Even during times when I am fairly busy, things just jump in the way. And no, I am not insane... or so I do not think anyway.
