There are two basic categories of human philosophy, where philosophy is the study or creation of thoughts and ideas about basic things concerning the nature of existence and how we perceive (think about) the knowledge that we gain through the experience of living. Our personal philosophy of life influences how we think about ourselves, about others, and about the world in which we live. These two basic categories are religion and science. Religion is the most persuasive and dominant of the two because it deals with our unique sense of hope.
Humans have the unique emotional ability to hope unlike any other life form that exists. We have classified ourselves as members of the scientific classification, Hominid, which includes all other great apes. Other members of our family, chimpanzees for example, can be and are scientists in their own right, where science is the study of the nature and behavior of things found in the environment and the knowledge that a life form obtains about them. One of the many examples of this is the way in which chimpanzees use sticks and grasses to extricate termites from mounds that are inaccessible in any other way. Chimpanzees, and many other animals of higher intelligence, study the nature and behavior of things in their environment and learn how to utilize, change, and control these things for the animal’s specific needs. But there is no other life form, of any kind, that hopes. Therefore, only humans allow religious ideologies to develop that fulfill the human emotional expectation that hope creates.
There is no other life form, of any kind, that smiles as a result of hope fulfilled. There is no other life form, of any kind, that laughs from a sense of humor as a result of unexpected hope fulfilled. The misinformed might argue that a chimpanzee smiles. They do not and cannot. Animals can be trained to create or mimic the physical expression of a smile, but their smile is not a result of hope fulfilled. And no other animal, of any kind, has a sense of humor that causes other members of their particular species to laugh.
“Hope” is the deep-rooted measure of our humanity that uniquely separates us from all other life forms. “Hope” is that which we feel can be possible in spite of the improbabilities that seem to be part of our present experience. This feeling (our hope) is greatly affected by our personal philosophy of life. For this reason, religion has much more dominance and persuasion over our personal philosophy than science. Science does not offer any hope. The best human scientists have been able to determine is that somehow (and science has only produced theories about how) humans became the most intelligent and dominate life form by evolving from a lower life form. Scientists have concluded this, not by studying human nature, but by studying non-human life forms. When Charles Darwin developed his personal philosophy (Theory of Evolution) and wrote his Magnus Opus, “On the Origins of Species” (1959), his study and observations were primarily about every other animal and plant, except human beings. When confronted by his peers of this obvious neglect, and because of expected harsh arguments about his theory from religionists, to save face, Darwin applied his personal theory to humans and later wrote a few books specifically about them: “The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals” (1872) was one.
Once he had made up his mind, once he had formed his personal philosophy from his study of basic things about the nature of existence, the cognitive filter in Darwin’s mind was firm and impenetrable by any other thought or idea. Darwin had to protect his ego. If his principle theory of evolution was wrong, then everything that he published that was based on this theory was also wrong. He made his money and his honor in the world solely based on his personal theory.
This book will present evidence and knowledge that will prove that Darwin’s theory is irrefutably wrong. But this book will also present evidence and knowledge that every religious belief, spirituality, theory, principle, concept, tenet, and anything associated with the concept of faith (believing in something unseen based on feelings without any empirical evidence) is undeniably wrong. We will present evidence and knowledge that every human that has based his or her personal philosophy on religion or science is profoundly wrong … EVERYONE!
Everyone thinks, at least hopes, that their personal philosophy is right, and that anyone who disagrees with them has to be wrong. We have coined and legally registered a term that defines the premise of our information: Everyone is right. Which makes everyone wrong.®
It’s very hard to admit when we are wrong, especially when our personal self-worth and value—the reason why we exist—is based on our personal philosophy. Wars have been waged over who was right and who was wrong. The war and destruction of innumerable humans didn’t prove anything. Regardless of who has the power over humans and can control their outward physical actions and destroy them, no one and nothing can destroy the individual human ability to think, reason, and determine for oneself what one’s personal philosophy of life should be. Chained slaves controlled by whips and guns still held their heads high in their own minds as they held on to their personal philosophy about their own existence.
The human world is on the brink of destruction. Not only are we killing ourselves through wars of egos and uprisings and revolutions against economic disparity, our advanced civilization of technological achievements are destroying human life and Earth’s natural environs. If we are not killed while fighting each other, we are being killed at unprecedented rates by sickness, disease, cancers and other physical ailments that are a result of the unnatural way that we live our lives compared to how other members of the Hominid family live theirs. For one of many examples, there is no other animal upon Earth that cooks its food before it eats it. Humans have no concept, nor does science or religion teach it, of the devastating effect that heat has on the natural substances that Earth provides us for nourishment. Because humans, unlike other animals, eat for emotional satisfaction instead of instinctual necessity, cooking food will not go away easily.
It’s these human emotions, these feelings we have, that generate and are responsible for our personal philosophy about life; again, where philosophy is the study or creation of thoughts and ideas about basic things concerning the nature of existence and how we perceive (think about) the knowledge that we gain through the experience of living. Religion is mainly responsible for the wars that we wage against each other. Science is mainly responsible for the technology that is destroying our natural world and causing sickness, disease, cancers and other physical ailments that kill us. And both religion and science are responsible for the economic inequality that divides us and causes us to envy, hate, and want to kill each other over material things.
Nothing we have learned over time is helping the human race save itself, not from religion or from science. What we have learned from the philosophies that we have allowed to form and manipulate our personal view of others and ourselves is destroying us. Our only hope for salvation is to first accept that we are all wrong in how we perceive others and ourselves, and then learn things about our existence and our world that will benefit all human beings equally.
Perhaps the human race shouldn’t exist, if who and what we have become is demonstrative of what humans do when they become (regardless of how they became this way) the most dominant life form upon Earth. Perhaps the earth, the animals, the plants, and the very forces of nature are waiting for us to destroy ourselves so that they can continue living and repair the earth as it was meant to be, naturally, unimpeded by human domination. Perhaps we don’t deserve to exist. But we do exist as a life form of the greatest compendium of matter found anywhere in the universe.
This book is an Introduction to our main book* that will detail everything that we need to do in order to save the human race from self-destruction, and planet Earth from human destruction. We are only introducing an overview of what we have discovered about humans and the details of our past and present that have led us to this point of “hell on Earth” for most, and have caused humanity to teeter on the edge of self-extermination. If our introduction of these concepts is rejected, and the prevalent views of science and religion are more preferable to humans than new concepts and ideas that WILL lead to our salvation and indefinite human existence upon Earth, then the human race doesn’t deserve this intelligence. It would be better that we do nothing to save the human race. It would be better that we do nothing to improve human life upon Earth, because there would no longer be any hope for humans. If our book fails to gain readership, when offered free of charge, without any one of the book’s authors receiving any accolade or gain from its publication, we have no hope for the human race, or for Earth.
Science and religion have caused all of our problems. We cannot hope that the cause of our problems will also be the solution. If humanity has no hope in something new outside of the philosophies of men mingled with scientific publications and religious scriptures, all of which are responsible for the state of our current world, then nothing we propose, no matter how profound and irrefutable, will do any good.
If humanity has lost hope, again where “hope” is the deep-rooted measure of our humanity that uniquely separates us from all other life forms—that which we feel can be possible in spite of the improbabilities that seem to be part of our present experience—then we have no hope either. If this Introduction fails to gain readership and intellectual traction, we will not publish the full book, *The Dream of Mortal Life, Understanding Human Reality—A Final Warning To The Human Race.
Read this Introduction to our concepts and proposals. Humble yourself enough to consider that you might be wrong, that science might be wrong, that religion might be wrong. Consider that, obviously, none of the philosophies that we currently embrace, that protect our egos, are making the world a better place.
Consider what we know to be true:
Everyone is right. Which makes everyone wrong.®
