A SPECTRE IS HAUNTING IMAGINATION
9/7/2005 7:27:21 AM
THE SPECTRE OF SELF-EXTINCTION

IT OVERSHADOWS SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST MANKIND!!!
WITH FANTASY BEWILDERED, WITH PSYCHE IN STRAITS--IF NOT AT BAY--SURVIVAL OF HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS IS AT STAKE.
(THE AMOEBA, THE COCKROACH, THE WHALE, THE COELACANTH...COULDN'T CARE LESS, PERHAPS.)
(BUT PITY SOMEHOW THE DINOSAUR, THE DODO, THE ? ? ?.)

* * *

LIFE ON EARTH IS, AS FAR AS WE KNOW, THE ONLY INSTANCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS WITHIN THE MIRACLE...MOTHER AND FATHER OF ALL MIRACLES--FROM BACKGROUND NOISE TO LIGHT MATTER
TO OUR SELVES.
(CONSCIOUSNESS WITHOUT THE MIRACLE???  HAH! AND SEE BELOW!)

* * *

IMAGINE THAT "MOMENT" WHEN "MIND" WOKE UP!
"What?" "Who. . .ME???" "WHYYYY????"
WE NOW KNOW A LOT OF THE "WHAT!" AND A LOT ABOUT "WHO!"
AND SINCE FIRST BEGAN THE "WHY-ANSWERING" MYTHS WE HAVE MADE UP MANY, BOTH POLY AND MONO THEISTIC. THESE MYTHS HAVE SET US APART FROM EACH OTHER, SET US AT EACH OTHER,
SET US UPON EACH OTHER,
SET US OVER OUR EARTH,
SET US AT RISK AND SEEMINGLY BEHIND TIME FOR SURVIVAL,
AND--PERISH THE THOUGHT--SET US UP FOR EXTINCTION.

WE ARE HERE! NOW! SINCE THE ICE AGE!
(NOT VERY LONG, HUH!)
AWESOME POSSIBILITY, POTENTIALITY, RESPONSIBILITY. . .
MUST WE SQUANDER IT?
DOES IT REALLY MATTER "WHY?" WE ARE HERE?

***

THE MIRACLE AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT THE MIRACLE!!!
FAITHING IT IN OR OUT WITH MIRACULOUS HEROES AND MEANIES
ONLY MAKES IT MORE SO.
RATIONALIZING IT MAKES US FIGHT ABOUT IT.
JUSTIFYING IT MAKES US FIDGET ABOUT IT.
LET IT BE! PRAISE IT! ENJOY IT! LIVE AND LET LIVE! THEN LET GO!
WE ALL KNOW THAT WISDOM, PERSONIFIED IN LOVE, IS ALL WE NEED TO
SAVE OURSELVES FROM, BY, AND FOR OURSELVES,
FOR MIRACLES' SAKE!

* * *

CONSCIOUSNESS BEFORE THE MIRACLE???
YES, THERE ARE MANY POLY AND MONO
MYTHOLOGICAL ANSWERS TO "HOW" WE GOT HERE,
BUT THEY ARE IMAGINED FROM INSIDE OUT AND ARE SKIMPY ON THE DETAILS
(ALONG WITH OUR FUZZY SCIENTIFIC CALCULATIONS).
WE NEED NOT NECESSARILY RELY ON HISTORICAL MYTHS;
SALVATION DEPENDS ON CREATIVE IMAGINATION HERE AND NOW
...FOREVER.

LET'S ENCOURAGE MANKIND--INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY--
TO TAKE A GOOD LOOK INTO THE MIRROR AND HAVE A GOOD LAUGH AT
INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE HUMANITY...THEN A GOOD LAUGH TOGETHER.
AND AFTER WE HAVE ALL TAKEN OUR BEST MEDICINE,
LET'S FORGIVE EACH OTHER OUR HISTORICAL IGNORANCE AND STUPIDITY
AND SET TO THE INTERNATIONAL STRUGGLE TO ENSURE THE SURVIVAL
OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE SURVIVAL OF OUR SPECK OF DUST!

(Shouting aside!)
