Is the human species at its base level, nothing more than a virulent virus bestowed with consciousness?
There is no doubt that a virus is smart, very smart indeed, one of the reasons they have been around and survived for so long. However they do have a fatal flaw in their voracious hunger to survive, sometimes they kill off their host and in turn themselves. They can only survive and thrive via a host; humans cannot live without residing in or on our suitably conditioned host planet Earth.
It would appear that consciousness has been a gift that actually doesn’t keep on giving, especially if the organism selected doesn’t really appreciate being gifted such a special gift. On observation, which of course is a solitary and uniquely individual viewpoint, it would appear that we have squandered and abused the special present. In fact we have gone on to blame consciousness, preferring to regard ourselves as victims and superior beings at the same time. The environment, being the host planet, is attacking us, so we must go to war with it, defeat it and personalize it.
Or we are simply just a broken machine, Gods left over elbow skin, coddled together from all other ongoing experiments and thrown out there as the special one with the lot. No matter what we actually are, we beings, the human species, we are what in the world does that.

Observing whats real is becoming increasingly difficult. This site is my view, my perception and my commentary on what I believe to be real, from my own unique position.
