Buddhism And Dinosaurs

As long as there are only two explanations for life on earth, there will be conflict. Controlled opposition that promotes beliefs causes more problems, and is used to distract, ensuring that people do not think too deeply. As Lenin said, “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”

If you ever wondered whether there was another possibility other than creationism (God create us) and evolutionism (we evolved out of the swamp), the following view may be worth considering.

Nature works in its own way – it always has. In an infinite universe, life didn’t start with this planet, as nature is eternal. The physical universe works its own magic, as conditions arise from previous conditions and life adapts. The destruction of one system is the energy for another. When conditions are right, sentience is attracted. The universe is full of sentient beings; even on Earth, with 7 billion people, it is unimaginable how many other sentient creatures are here. The universe is a big place, but the code to life is very simple.

The code to remember is:
Consciousness never changes.
Everything else does.

And how does evolution take place?
Consciousness never changes, but it clarifies.

Through our propensity (our karmic make up) consciousness (for that is what we are) is attracted to this or that. All the while, consciousness is one eternal continuity that has never changed throughout our life.

When the body wears out, consciousness continues with a store of karmic potential. This is the blueprint, and consciousness takes on another body with latent tendencies.

Consciousness is animate nature which instills or gives inspiration to life, and manifests in the right conditions. As we are unenlightened, we merely go round in cycles and experience birth and death. That is nature – it works like clockwork.

On Earth, primitive consciousness was attracted to primitive micro-organisms 3-4 billion years ago. For these to thrive, there must have been consciousness of some sort. Through attraction, consciousness evolved, over time, into specific forms such as cold-blooded reptiles, and if food was was plentiful, larger reptiles developed, which led to dinosaurs.

Nature came into play, making way – around 252 million years ago – for warm-blooded creatures that attracted an appropriate consciousness.

Gradually, humans evolved, ready for the journey to enlightenment. Looking around, however, we are not all the same sort of humans, as some of us are still very aggressive 😀 while others ponder the meaning of life. In these ways, we evolve to higher realms.

We are born with certain traits – where did these come from? If consciousness leaves the body, it stands to reason that it can enter a body (some say at conception).

We don’t have to accept this whole scenario, but just consider it. It may answer the question of the meaning to life for some, but not for everyone.

There’s a bit of a dinosaur in us all 🙂 It’s called ‘reptilian’ or primitive brain – fight, flight and freeze.

This is merely nature at work:
we desire, fear, and are indifferent.
The wise know the essence of these negative responses to be wisdoms.

There is no higher evolution than enlightenment.
The alternative is that we continue squabbling, while on autopilot.
