ETHICS: THE FIRST WORLD AND MAN’S LOSS OF CALM DIGNITY – the dream of Peace.
DR. JERNAIL SINGH ANAND president, IAE.
[The Original Intelligence [mother wit] which objects of Nature hold has been overlain with Human Intelligence, multiplied by Artificial Intelligence. Have they really been left behind in the race? Man is nowhere near the Peace that reigns the First World. Where is the snag?]
How we look at nature? There are trees, vegetation, animals, birds, rivers and mountains, and the skies. There is the sun, the moon, the stars, and big galaxies. All these things appear to be given, when we are installed here as human begins.
We never mind, and never credit gods, with all these blessings and boons, when they have given us without any requisition.
When a new born baby arrives, he can breathe in the air, he can, after some time, walk on the earth, he needs water, he needs milk, – all these things are available, without a penny.
This is the penniless universe, in which we, the penniwise are installed as human beings.
And the worst thing is: we express no gratitude to gods, to trees, to birds, to waters, winds, – for making our life possible on this earth.
We look upon Nature as a second rate creation. Humanity being the first. And all nature in the service of man. To help him attain heights of intelligence and creativity.
First of all, ethically speaking, whosoever gives us anything without any charge, deserves to be profusely thanked. Which we don’t do in case of nature.
Secondly, we become aware of their value only when we find the things being denied due to our own follies. If winds are polluted, did gods do this foul job? If waters are polluted, did gods establish foundries in our cities? Everything that came from gods was pure, and shining. And as they touched the ground, populated by men, they started losing their sheen. Today, you cannot drink water unless it comes through the RO.
Nature has so much to communicate to human beings. I have taken up only two major things which we can get from Nature.
First, nature possesses a calm dignity. It is not in the active, but in the passive mode. We act upon it, and it reacts gracefully. Cut a tree. Will it take you to a court? Kill a bird? There is no avian judiciary. Throw anything you like in the Ganges, from flowers to corpses, does the water ever show any sense of reaction?
When we use or misuse objects of nature, they do not react as men do, vow no vengeance, unless the assault is too stark. If you set a forest on fire, the life that it will take, will not let you rest in peace. In the same way, if we are polluting rivers, they do not react immediately. But soon, you find how they make your life difficult.
There is a sense of stability in nature. Mentally too they are stable. None of them is physically starved. They may not have mental food as we people have, but they are blessed with an ORIGINAL INTELLIGENCE. A cow, after it eats its fodder, is dutybound to give milk. And it gives. Dogs, who live with human beings, bark when a stranger approaches their masters. Buffaloes, swallows, cocks, peacocks, hens, peahens, – every being of nature, including the earth and the sky – are at work, silently. And know what they ought to do.
Surprising, not one suffers from sexual starvation. As we find it widespread among humans. No rape and no molestation. Such things are absolutely absent from the animal world. They remain sexually satisfied, and therefore, remain in a calm sedate mood. Just performing their duties. A duty performed gives you immense joy.
If you find human race shorn of joy, peace, and even dignity, the only reason is: they have lost the calm dignity of animals, and birds. And their internal Stability. They have lost the sense of duty of dogs. Humans are a sexually deprived and starved race. They can never experience stability of mind, and we cannot expect them to do any good to the cosmos, unless they are free from the needs of their bodies. Men suffer body-wise. Mind-wise, spirit-wise. I wonder if there is any wisdom in this ‘wise’ and ‘wise’. We are in fact too wise and this wisdom has drained us our joy. If the animals and birds possess an Original Intelligence, we have acquired an Artificial Wisdom which keeps us on the rocks. Wow!
Now question is: Who should learn What and from Whom? With our AI, we have left the plants far behind. They have been reduced to emblems and installed in our galleries, with stony shingles in their base, for they do not need water. They are artificial.
CAN THERE BE PEACE IN THE WORLD? NO.
But we are nowhere near perfection in our formulated systems, because so long as its members remain in a disturbed condition, [some are looted, some deprived of their humanity while some are accumulating the wealth of the world], there will be no Peace. Nature knows there is enough greenery and vegetation to support the and the aviary kingdom. If there is scarcity, it is only in human world. And, that too, it is ARTIFICIAL SCARCITY CREATED BY VILLANOUS MINDS.
THE FIRST WORLD: NATURE
Nature is the First World created by God. And we are the second. But our race is fast, and we have outpaced nature in several ways. But, where we have reached? I think we do not possess the ORIGINAL INTELLIGENCE which is in the possession of normal birds and animals.
In ‘Lustus’, we see the great monster trying to destablizie the animal kingdom, by developing a ‘Selfie’ which is a Homovid Vaccination, which imparts human consciousness to animals, who start behaving greedy and jealous like humans. If we did not stop our blind operations, man will destroy nature, and ultimately destroy himself.
THEN, Where is wisdom? In not interfering with Nature. Rather, emulating the original intelligence that we find in animals, birds and trees, – who stand up with dignity, because they perform their duties well.
Peace is missing from human habitations. Simple. We have lost the calm dignity of birds and animals, we are too intelligent, and we deprived not only nature of its space, but also usurped the resources of the earth, which were enough for its born.
We need to go back to Nature, and unlearn a thousand things, before we can dream of Peace.
