As human beings, civilization has fulfilled its potential. We have not evolved in the past 10,000 years from the indigenous functions of our ancestors. From discovering fire to soaring 40,000 feet in the sky, it’s no secret that we are quite an amazing species. The routines that we endure through our daily lives are mostly innovated through the achievements of the technological revolution, that constantly grows at a rapid pace. The future holds limitless possibilities of inventions.
With that being said, it is now time for us to manifest past the stimulation of primal desires to a higher consciousness and realm of thinking. We have defined ourselves between the limits of our 5 senses and the material self which is transitory. We can’t hear the high frequency of a dog whistle of the low vibrations of a whale singing. Nonetheless we are confined to detecting between the slender spectrum of infrared and ultraviolet light. There are animals out there that can hear and see what we can’t. That’s where the deep question follows; what is out there that we can’t see, hear, or smell? Also knowing that we only use 10% of our brain; (of course some people use less) the thought comes to my mind “how much of this planet, galaxy, universe, are we missing out on”?
I avoid watching the chaos that’s displayed daily on social media and television because I know that there is a deeper meaning to existence then what is being exposed. Us humans have more capabilities that we give ourselves credit for. I’ve came to the conclusion that we are all living in an illusion on a psychological basis. From our emotions to our social standards of living and thinking, I feel as if there is more to this, and when I say this I mean existence.
At the apex of industrialization and colonialism, despite the bad rap human kind gets; I believe for the most part we are a galvanizing mixture of inhabitants. When there is a natural disaster, there is an arbitrary impulse to help one another, which keeps my faith in what’s in store for the future.
I am in my 20s and the time that I’ve been in this universe I’ve realized that our minds are mainly based on our environment and experiences; other than that we are all the same. We are all shuffling through life on the same journey. Rather we are temporary blobs of atoms endowed with consciousness or spirits trapped in matter, we are all one in the same.
Nevertheless, I have gratitude for my ability to maintain open mindedness. I’m also thankful for my family, friends, and all of the past relationships that I’ve ever had, because those people mixed with the series of events that I’ve encountered with is what makes me who I am, Nick F. Hawkins. Yet I still feel like I’m in the process of awakening so I consider myself waking up on the wrong side of the universe, where sleep is not virtues.
