Laughing At Humans, Part II: The Progression and Dividing of Groups

Posted in Writings with tags , , , , on August 28, 2010 by Eyeless

The ape-men then progressed for some additional thousands of years, until they had evolved into homo sapiens, when they suddenly paused.

Evolution was flabbergasted for just a moment. The humans had no other rivals left. The other apes were now so primitive in comparison that any threat against humanity was futile; not even worth being bothered by. The humans had, with much help from their own inventions, more or less taken over the world. Many other species had done so previously in Earth’s younger days, but none of them were as fully adapted or progressing as the humans.

The only rival now was humanity itself, and humans had divided into groups. Well, they had done so previously in history, and just like now, conflicts would bloom whenever these divided groups would meet. However, in these modern days, their inventions were far more advanced, and great wars were fought when in earlier years simple brawls had taken place.


But the dividing of humanity was far greater and far more complex than two battling sides. It began with a smaller group, surviving in a somewhat harsh world. The need to stick together was important. This group consisted of a handful of families, and each family consisted of a handful of individuals. As the groups grew, and more individuals came to birth, the shorter could these groups stay on each place as each individual meant another mouth to feed.

At some point it would become obvious that the group was to big for one leader to handle, for at some point there must be someone else that rises against this leader, and the strain upon the group would be too great when too many strive for leadership. Those that failed to take over the throne would build their own groups and go their own way. That group would follow the same process, and uncountable groups would build.

As a whole, all these groups would be seen as one; but as already stated, the conflict was great. Each group had it’s conflict in each of the three layers: the whole, the family, the individual. Every newborn meant another conflict was on it’s rise.

Humanity’s vast population in later days created a thought of the self as the only one to trust. Perhaps a brother or a sister or any other member of the family were trusted, but in a world when everyone had to uphold their individuality and separation from the mass; where  sister slay brother without remorse and vice versa, one could never be safe. Better keep a gun inside the jacket. Better to be safe than sorry.

Thoughts Circling Around Depression III

III.

Now, what do you think when you see for example goths or emos, and other “weird” people that you would suspect of being suicidal-depressive? Would you ignore them as the ghosts they are, call them names, harass them? What would you feel in their situation? Imagine. Would you have the strength to fight back by yourself or did you not just show that sign of weakness that is even greater (or weaker) than theirs – the fear of becoming them?

Laughing At Humans, Part I: The Inevitable Beginning

Evolution once pondered the thought of putting the idea of control over life into some species. The most fitting seemed the ape-men. They had already hands with fingers, and feet with toes. These were great at manipulating objects, and detailed ones at that. Therefore, it also seemed this species had the upper hand among other animals; for the others did not feature hands or feet alike that could manipulate with such precision. The apes could grip with their hands; grip stones and branches which could be tossed at hostile animals or used as tools. As they no longer had any natural enemies, they could reproduce fast and well. But many apes meant many mouths to feed, and the apes would have to seek better places for food and resources.

In the search of such places, it was not uncommon for them to stumble upon other apes, some more primitive in ways. These “other” apes had already claimed the territories that held fresh water and fruits, but the smarter ape-men outnumbered them, perhaps tricked them in some way and killed them. They threw rocks, debris and anything else that was hard and blunt.

Evolution laughed. It had brought forth a species which oppressed other species which inhabited the lands that the ape-men desired. And as the other species avoided these apes, they came to grow. They adapted to wherever they were, and at the same time they kept evolving.

Dreaming Days

In a world of blur I stood utterly confused, trying in vain to concentrate on any details of what was before me. An angelic shape in dominating guise held firmly before its silhouetted face a scroll with some fading ancient text or message, and a booming voice echoed in my head: READ. It was a featureless voice, inhuman but not godly, heard but unheard, yet the power in it was immense and was merely tickling the border of shattering my fragile skull. And as I said, utterly confused I tried so hard to read the message; I really gave it the effort of my life, but like a dream it was too hard for anything vaguely human to even figure out one letter in all that blur. The overpowering being was standing amidst turbulent waves of thick white smoke, and a burning light crowned its image. Rays of this flaming light speared its way through several spots in the smoke; as a whole it seemed they were constructing a circle around the being. I could not focus enough to figure how great its wings were, but they stretched far and wide, shadowing parts of the golden light that shone from behind. I could not look elsewhere for more than a second before an immense power turned my gaze to the scroll by force. READ.

II.

Words are bigger than thoughts, action is thrice much more; remember that. To me, your answers to the before stated questions are obvious, therefore I will not cite them here. But you should know that you should be put into those situations just to show you how wrong you are if you disagree. You might actually learn something from it, and the lesson learnt is worth the despair.
