||Human SentienceOkay, another sleepless night, another blog filled with strange but interesting ideas (at least <b>I</b> think they're interesting).|
This blog will have several controversial ideas in it, involving sexuality, marriage, evolution, etc. so, if you are easily pissed off and have a closed-minded view of the world, please kindly go away.
Are they gone? Good, now we can begin.
Human sentience is an interesting concept, is it not? The ability to go against our primal instincts and to ask "why....?" makes us different from every other species on this planet. I've been thinking about several things our species tends to do that REALLY goes against our primal instincts and really makes you think about what we truly are capable of.
SEXUALITY: This one is a doozy, because, not to sound homophobic or anything, but from a purely biological point of view, homosexuality, bisexuality, and even asexuality are "unnatural," simply because our bodies weren't designed to be used in such a way. It goes against our survival instincts. Yet, there are some who choose to be with someone of the same sex for the rest of their lives. When I say "choose," the choice could either be subconscious or conscious. I still think it must be a choice, in one way or another, simply because, according to the animal kingdom, that's not what we're "supposed" to do. Now I'm not saying gay people should go and change, nor do I think they even <b>can</b>. All I'm saying is that the fact that women/men mate with other women/men, knowing full well that no offspring will come of it, is a very "human" thing to do.
MARRIAGE: Quite a flip of the coin there, don't you think? Well, yes, marriage is unique among us humans. The decision to mate and have kids with just one person also goes against out instinct to keep the human race going.
Both the ideas of marriage and of homo/bi/asexuality stem from the very human concept of love, which I'm not even gonna get into. Love requires its own blog, I think.
THIS BLOG: Yes, this blog. The fact that not only am I asking "Why...?" but I'm basically asking "Why do we ask, 'Why....?'" drives me absolutely bonkers. I know this could lead to questions such as "Why am I asking 'Why do we ask, 'Why...?'' bjut they all have the same answer.
Because I'm human.
Do you think I'm Crazy NOW!?
