What is the position of mankind in the universe. We human think we are the superior one in the whole world and indeed, we are I mean we have the power to change the whole world and we have done it so well so far with our knowledge. However the same knowledge makes us both wise and arrogant, with all the achievement so far humankind has ever achieved still we have to go long way to understand the secrets of the humankind and universe.
Beside all the success all our endeavors the real question is not when we going to find all the answers the real question is are we ready to accept the truth and reality? Because it human nature to obsess with past and refuse to give up his preconceptions. Right now, the brain and conditions of humankind is so feeble/mare/ small we need more words to express our existence in the universe. We may be smartest here on earth because we are able to think about our existence and place in the universe and we ended up finding the how vast this universe really is? However, one thing most of us hate to admit that we are nothing in this universe because we thing we are part of something very big (god), and that same preconception resist us to go beyond our assumptions. I found some beautiful lines from Steven Universe “Humans just lead short, boring insignificant lives so they make up stories to feel like they are part of something bigger”. I am not saying to give up our faith on gods (as everyone will give up hahahaha) I am just saying to follow the path of human nature (curiosity) to find the true reality of mankind.
Beside all the hard works, all the research, all the theories mankind has ever accomplished people still believe and god more than science.
As long as we are arrogant we never able to find the true reality. Here is an example, even if SETI (Search for extraterrestrial intelligence) finds something abnormal about the universe will we accept the truth, because we don’t even accept among of us who are deferent in color, age, height, religion then how can we suppose to accept that our very existence doesn’t not makes any deferent in the universe. Some might say, “why not we will accept” but we all know why we already know the reason. Here on earth we are fractional part of Mother Nature we may be able to influence some natural cycle but still our power is still nothing. As I said earlier, “it is our knowledge that makes us both wise and arrogant” based on our knowledge we can change our future for both good and bad but still it will be our future not earth’s future, Mother Nature doesn’t need people. However, that very same thing makes us different from other at least here on earth because we are able to think and thinking makes us curious, and as long as we are curious we will able to survive in this vast cosmic arena, we should be happy because there are few people in this world give their life’s every second to find our position in this universe.
