WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?
To these WHYs, we search the answers.
To many HOWs, we rummage the spaces.
To many WHATs, we analyse the world around.
We quest for these questions and more, all our lives, to make it more meaningful. But why is it so essential to find meaning? Why is it that in the multitude of millions we seek our individuality? Why is it that so many persons are moved and motivated by different goals? Or are we ultimately aiming for the same?
Is life a mere enactment for entertainment?
We are born into a world which is way beyond are comprehension and gregarious in its functioning. So, while we are at it... while we are still a part of it, we try and make sense of this discombobulation. Where does this curiosity arise from? Does every living organism apart from homo sapiens have this same sense of curiosity? Is it possible for them to have feelings too? Maybe, they have feelings which are so contrasting that they are out of range from happiness, sadness and anger. Who are we to say?
The world around us involves innumerable elements, species and phenomena. Some may remain unacknowledged forever. Yet, we show compassion only to fellow humans and sometimes not even that. Human evolution has managed to sideline the rest of the world. Our insatiable thirst for innovation and comfort have driven us to create technology that absorbs even the most redundant appearing rock and making it a resourceful raw material! In the race to reach the utopia of luxury, man is robbing the Earth of its treasures. While the rest of its inhabitants scamper for protection, many disappearing into oblivious extinction, we jettison into the future with zeal and ignore the famine created by our own hands.
"Survival of the fittest..." as Darwin theorized seems demonic in nature when thoughtfully reviewed. Is it always about the stronger? Is it always about the sharper? Is the competition of life indefinite? Does that imply that the meek and submissive are not meant to survive? Were they just aberrations in the continual experiments and trials of evolution?
Then, maybe, the stronger "Superior" beings are supposed to crumple the conquered under their toes. The world is supposed to serve its masters! But who decided this rule?
Humans march forward to turn their imagination into reality; to bring into existence the dreams of an alternate reality. Emperors of the Earth... haha.. Was everything on this planet created to serve humanity and its ulterior motives?
We do not have the right to abuse our power in this manner. We do not have the right to alter reality to our own taste because it can only lead to one destination.... DESTRUCTION. Power knows no master once its unleashed!
Laws of nature are not to be meddled with. Our fore fathers worshiped the forces of nature not without reason. The fact that even today, our confined intelligence has not succeeded in grasping the inscrutable power of Nature indicates who we really are. We are but a product of Nature and not its masters.
We harm, hurt and kill creatures not human; air, water, soil are polluted regularly; land is reclaimed and water is harnessed; this is the life of a normal human being. Then, by some surprising surge of benevolence and guilt, we realize, we are crossing certain boundaries and need to make amends. Its never too late! How easy it is to underestimate the resilience of Nature. When the torture nears barbarism and actions are sans ethics, Nature's wrath spares no one. Rightly so!
The power that we have maybe strutting misguided souls along circumspect paths but ultimately, it will reach its end. Maybe, then the inglorious masters will let sense and sensibility dawn on one and all. Maybe, then there will be harmony, not only among the many races of humans but also, between the worlds hidden beneath our greed, surviving untarnished.
