From an Anglo-Saxon MS. We read in the Vision of Perpetua: The old views are, as a rule, preserved but transformed. There is nowhere an absolutely new start.
Basically, how are we Good vs evil story make sense of human behaviour, specifically the dark side of human nature? And, more particularly, can we humans ever become truly moral beings?
Wilson has put forward in his theory of Eusociality, but the psychosis-addressing-and-solving, real explanation of it. Are humans good or are we possibly the terrible mistake that all the evidence seems to unequivocally indicate we might be?
Even in our everyday behaviour, why have we humans been so competitive, selfish and aggressive when clearly the ideals of life are to be the complete opposite, namely cooperative, selfless and loving?
In fact, why are we so ruthlessly competitive, selfish and brutal that human life has become all but unbearable and we have nearly destroyed our own planet?! Firstly, it overlooks the fact that our human behaviour involves our unique fully conscious thinking mind. Descriptions like egocentric, arrogant, deluded, artificial, hateful, mean, immoral, sinful, alienated, etc, all imply a consciousness-derived, psychological dimension to our behaviour.
A brief description of the theories of Social Darwinism, Page 66 of PDF Version Sociobiology, Evolutionary Psychology, Multilevel Selection and Eusociality that blame our divisive behaviour on savage instincts rather than on a consciousness-derived psychosis is presented in the What is Science?
And nor are they derived from warring with other groups of humans as advocates of the theory of Eusociality would have us believe.
No, we have an unconditionally selfless, fully altruistic, truly loving, universally-considerate-of-others-not-competitive-with-other-groups, genuinely moral conscience. Our original instinctive state was the opposite of being competitive, selfish and aggressive: How we humans acquired unconditionally selfless moral instincts when it would seem that an unconditionally selfless, fully altruistic trait is going to self-eliminate and thus not ever be able to become established in a species is briefly explained in the above-mentioned What is Science?
The answer begins with an analysis of consciousness. If you can remember past events, you can compare them with current events and identify regularly occurring experiences.
This knowledge of, or insight into, what has commonly occurred in the past enables you to predict what is likely to happen in the future and to adjust your behaviour accordingly.
Once insights into the nature of change are put into effect, the self-modified behaviour starts to provide feedback, refining the insights further. Predictions are compared with outcomes and so on. Much developed, and such refinement occurred in the human brain, nerves can sufficiently associate information to reason how experiences are related, learn to understand and become CONSCIOUS of, or aware of, or intelligent about, the relationship between events that occur through time.
Thus consciousness means being sufficiently aware of how experiences are related to attempt to manage change from a basis of understanding.
Basically, once our self-adjusting intellect emerged it was capable of taking over the management of Page 67 of PDF Version our lives from the instinctive orientations we had acquired through the natural selection of genetic traits that adapted us to our environment.
HOWEVER, it was at this juncture, when our conscious intellect challenged our instincts for control, that a terrible battle broke out between our instincts and intellect, the effect of which was the extremely competitive, selfish and aggressive state that we call the human condition.Good versus evil Nick Smith, Grade 8, Seymour Technical high school Short Story Everything was dark.
The landscape was a mountainside in West.
A young boy was camping with his father. There was a rustling in the bushes. Dark shapes darted in and out of the shadows. This is so well done. I’m like you and don’t believe in completely good vs. evil.
I love the twist in this one!
Kept my interest. I hope this is part of a bigger story. If God is all-powerful and all-good, it would have created a universe in the same way it created heaven: with free will for all, no suffering and no evil.
Books shelved as good-vs-evil: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling, Harry Pot. His story has never been simply “good vs evil” and his characters have never been black and white. It’s a story with a line of grey we don’t often see in fantasy stories.
We also know George loves to take typical tropes in said fantasy stories, and twist them.
Of course this album is good its KRAYZIE BONE for god sake, in my opinion the best hip-hop artist in existence.
But the problem is that I always have SUCH high expectations when he releases albums that I cant help but be a little dissapointed.
