“Survival of the Fittest” — Fact or Illusion?
“Survival of the fittest” is a phrase that originated from Darwinian evolutionary theory as a way of describing the mechanism of natural selection. So before I start, please don’t pick on me about it, because I’ll do this with a little bit of harshness and humor, just to make a point … and because I like it that way!
So … do we really need to be selfish, egocentric, controlling and always ready for a fight - to take whatever we need for ourselves, with no empathy for other human beings nor for animals? Is this a norm, how we need to be on the top from everyone else, be “better”, posses more material things, deceive others for our own personal gain and all the bullshit we as people have created in this outer reality. Is this really normal biological, animalistic fact about human drive to survive, or is this just an illusion we were taught for the time we spent in primary schools, so that now has become a perfect mind controlling mechanism for global slavery? To make us fight for what we possess and what “we are”, to keep the false identity alive - just to justify all the crap we project onto others, to feed the Ego consciousness in order to bypass dark shit we want to avoid in ourselves.
There’s a lot that is fed to us as a truth of science and is actually just bs. It’s a collaboration that ensures the harmonious system in nature, but man chose to focus on competition. And so called The Selfish gene, which states that we are all inherently selfish bastards.
I don’t want to get too much into a psychological view of this men, who was separated from his parents and sent to English boarding school, at the age of 4. We can have a sympathy, but that doesn’t mean we need to accept his bleak view on humanity. However there are also other sources that imply on Darwin who concluded that survival depends more on the ability to co-operate and to help other species than to dominate. So from that point of view the survival of the fittest is a propaganda. He also did conducted those experiments solely on animal and not humans.
We are hardwired for love and collaboration and when we will come back to this place inside ourselves, we no longer think that abuse, exploitation and greed are acceptable. I think that is what they are afraid of, which is why they promote the selfish, competitive agenda and call it “Science and Truth”. And it is not a secret that today’s media, for example, are using a lot of primal human instincts to mask agenda behind it and play with those bloods cards, but we have forgotten that we hold a trump card in our hands!
It seems that it’s just an idea they invented - the idea of hierarchy, that one person is of more value than another. They did this to motivate people to work, so they make a profit for themselves. The reward was to move higher up the hierarchy and to be considered more important. Hierarchy is a human invention, as everything else is. A men made mind concept. So this is then manifested as a final belief that we can’t escape from being a human animal. Only the fittest genes survive to go on. If your genes are no good, you die and don’t get to procreate. Because that is obviously the most important and the only thing a human being has to achieve on this planet right?
We are biologically designed to shit everywhere, but we don’t. We are biologically designed to fuck everywhere, but we don’t (although that would be a great proposition now and then). Those are examples of humans transcending genetic programming. And we have plenty of those. But it’s our destination to transcend certain patterns and to move forward evolutionary. That’s why we are here. We don’t do things as we did many hundred years ago and which are normal to us today.
Around 17th century the western world split all the old philosophical questions into two categories; Questions of the inner world and questions of the outer world. They gave the inner world investigations to the church and outer world investigations to the science. Over time, the west and science forgot to bring this two investigation back together, so we are left with the idea that truth can only be known by studying the external reality. And also that we are only physical beings and that religion or spirituality is a load of nonsense (which of course can be and it has become in some fashion). In another words, we have all become separated from our inner experience, which is the original one, but because we have created collective unconscious as well, it is now presented to us as our primal fear to be faced with what’s inside.
The science denies this inner experience and the most dangerous example of this is artificial intelligence. The idea that we can be physically modified to be “better” and to transcend the limitations of our genes in that way. But our genes do not control us, because we are not purely physical beings.
Not to get into a lizard stuff conspiracy (it’s another topic), but I believe that all of this was influenced by a reptilian brain programming. Reptilian brain part is the oldest of the three (reptilian, limbic and neocortex) and is responsible for involuntary functions as a beating of the heart, the workings of our organs and our breathing. So one part of the brain can dominate and thus far it has been the reptilian brain. It is also very easy to manipulate and control this part of us, because it is very primal and contains a lot of aspects from everyday routine we live in and can be easily mixed up with and be manipulated with certain functions that operates deep inside our psyche. It can make us more territorial, greedy, hungry for power and wanting to dominate. Just look at how this mind controlling agendas has influenced our systems; government, society, education, politics, sports, business etc.
So the only way there is, is to reconnect with our inner world and places inside of us and not to perceive just what is “out there”. And yes, the shit will start to fly around again. But that is the only way. We even don’t want to know what other options are.
And at the end it all depends on the story-teller. Just because some rigidly disturbed people create and promote their stories, doesn’t mean it’s true. Just think of how much suffering they had to go through themselves to feel so much drive to publish their theories. Every theory is just a belief. And every belief is a vibration! That’s why we resonate with something based on how we feel inside. But we have to take into consideration that there are layers of the psyche, so the truth can be covered with something that make us feel better in that particular moment - for as long as we need, to become conscious again.
