Not too long ago we wandered this planet in search of food and sought favor from the gods that surely controlled reality. Since those 8,000 years, we have progressed in our capacity to understand. We can now realize the numerous galaxies in the sky above us are not just the stars they initially appear to be. We have polished the lens of our perception and increased the resolution of our understanding. Our models for reality are becoming highly refined and capable of delving deeply into the macro and micro worlds we perceive.

We are youngsters in this universe and this galaxy. Nearly or more than two thirds of all time occurred before our sun began to shine. Us, the human life form, ways less than one percent of the sun’s existence. Basically, we just recently appeared and emerged out of the the workings of space and time. Somewhere in this universe life appeared long before our sun existed. Life that grew, and became self aware like us. During their millions of years of existence, they developed mathematics, or discovered it to be more accurate. The same for all the physical sciences. Even perhaps, arts and philosophy but certainly the sciences and music. Success, defined as the ability to control energy, depends upon growth and the scope of control. A small animal has limited resources and their scope of control is limited by their size and range. A bigger animal can control more resources, a smarter animal even more. That is where we come in here on earth. We are the smart animals here. We can and do kill every other living thing. Only a few living things kill us. We have mathematics, sciences, and much more to help us define and clarify the reality we find ourselves within. Suppose some other life forms lived a billion years ago or even a million years ago in our galaxy and developed way beyond where we are today. Image how far we have come in 8,000 years and image how far we will be in another million years. If their civilization continued for even 100,000 years they might have developed the technology to travel through space and time without a body. Perhaps it is similar to what happens to us when we use our imaginations to travel to other places and times.

Someday perhaps we’ll meet them, joining with them as members of the club called life, that only exists in consciousness.

Sometimes the challenges we face can be difficult to comprehend and fathom. It is always best to smile, wonder a bit, and then move on with life. Always focus on positive change and develop positive perceptions, even when those around you seek your misfortune. It is through our expressions that we reveal who and what we are. Wink, Wink :-)

Artist's Description

Our history as a species, I believe has passed through three states of being. In this, the third state, we are now capable of communication with those who were in this universe long before the planet earth existed.
