Where we began..wow I've been mulling that one around for years. Part of me wants to believe that it is mostly scientific or at the very least a really good volatile combination of what happens when you mix logic with intuition and POOF like vinegar and baking soda..we became.. Â
Then another part of me wants to believe that we were once much more evolved and were forced to regress due to all the stragglers refusing to evolve. That theory being that maybe we go backwards to move forwards...but that one I may have come up with after one too many Â Â
What I keep coming back to, and the theory that I am the most drawn to, is one that is very complicated to explain but is quite a simple concept. That being..vanity.
It is possible over time without conflict to erupt into vanity and a lack of appreciation for our surroundings. I do believe that at one time, as a universal consciousness..(don't ask me where that came from..I haven't taken it that far yet)..at some point there was some kind of rift that shook it to the core and it started an overhaul. In my mind's eye I imagined it being broken up and sent spiraling out in an arc, piece by piece, thus creating individual souls. These souls were meant to experience the cycle, to learn everything that they could, and above all to develop an appreciation of self before returning to the source, in an attempt to make it not perfect, but more perfect than before.
I have written quite a bit on this, actually and haven't talked about it in awhile. I appreciate the topic, Leilah.
