Why are we here?
Many human minds have tried to answer this age-old question, and some may have succeeded, but we have no way of knowing for sure. Such are the rules of the game: run on faith or run on empty, because there will never be enough proof to satisfy one’s logical mind.
Buddhists say we are here to learn, Existentialists say there is no reason but the randomness of an absurd universe. New Agers say we are spiritual beings having a human experience; we are the rainbow bridge joining the material and spiritual realms in divine harmony.
Extraterrestrialists say we are ET hybrids genetically modified to be good slaves; we are food left here to multiply by a galaxy-faring race who will soon return to harvest us.
Western science says we’re the product of random evolutionary changes over a very long period of time, adapting to shifting environmental pressures. Problem is evolution explains how we became the species we are, but not why we are here. Science can only extrapolate from evolutionary theory to explain the why, and the answer becomes: there is no why; we are the random result built over the aeons by mechanical self-assembling lego pieces in a clockwork universe.
But that’s not what Darwin was saying; On the Origin of the Species states at the end:
There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.
The “original breath” to which he refers is, of course, the touch of a Creator. Darwin never saw his theory as being in contradiction with the faith, although he was quite aware that the implications of his theory –which he carefully left unspoken in his book– would rile a feather or two as soon as someone figured out what he was really saying. The rest, as they say, is his-story: paraphrasing the Mahatma, first they ignored him, then they laughed at him, then they fought him, then he won. Except in some parts of the US, where they’re still fighting him.
Now, as far as MY theory is concerned, you can jump straight to the laughing stage if you’d like. We can discuss the fighting when you’re done reading.
This is the way I see it: Planet Earth is the location of a galactic hit reality show which is followed by billions of sentient beings in our galaxy and beyond. There is evidence that even Prime Creator tunes in once in a while. The show is called Terra Wrecked (note: this name is invented) and is about these lifeforms stuck in a four-dimensional holographic reality on a planet kept in isolation from the rest of the universe. The primitive conditions of existence on Terrra –including time, decay, death and rebirth– provide the backdrop for raw human emotions that are pure poetry and existential doubts that provide some comic relief (“are we ALONE in the universe?” Bwahahaha!).
The intensity of incarnation on Earth; the pain, joy, doubt, suffering, discovery, carnal pleasures… raw emotions which higher civilizations have long since left behind and yet miss in their intensity. All these they can experience vicariously through the great Planet Earth Show. Tuning in is simple, if you’re an advanced civilization and know how to tap the Void for information. Because each and every one of us is feeding information into the Void in a real-time and non-stop manner, as stated by Haramein in one of the 45 parts of the video attached here (warning: watching 45 videos of Haramein may provoke blog posts). Technically, once in the Void, the information –including but not limited to every thought, word and action of every sentient being on Earth, including the planet herself– is instantly available for download anywhere in the universe, internet-style (royalty proceedings are deposited directly in the corresponding Bank of the Universe karma account).
This is a show for mature audiences. The violence, deceit, greediness, perversion and stupidity is great for the ratings but can overwhelm more sensitive galactic races. Nevertheless, the show is so hot that production is having a hard time keeping UFO rubberneckers off the set. Word has it that the season finale is just around the corner, and it’s gonna be WICKED!
Now, if you’ve been left feeling like lion feed in a bread-and-circus show to satisfy the base needs of the galactic plebe, think again. The suffering may be part of the show, but it is NOT the purpose of the show. The show is actually about transformation and self-knowledge, about finding that door in the sky just like Truman did. The protagonists of the show are the small people that shine like stars every time they laugh, love, give thanks and hold out a helping hand. When these people find the door and pass through it, they are hailed on the other side as heroes (hey! weren’t you in Terra Wrecked? I love that show!) and given a tenured position at the Office of Earth Relations, with a perk package that is out of this world.
We are here to find the door, open it and step through. Seen from the other side, it’ll all make sense, right? Right?
