Brain Vomit - Grass Weasels and Us by RomanJones Brain Vomit - Grass Weasels and Us by RomanJones
This is a long and rather ugly rant that's been eating away at my brain for a while. Take it or leave it, it's up to you.

AP History has taught me that humans haven't changed much from their days as cavemen

I loved Meerkat Manor, but I can understand how the show terrified you.

It just creeps me out that so much of human behavior is practically the exact same things done for the exact same reasons as lower animals. It just shows how little we care about our own civility.

I don't know... If it wasn't I'd serve it to people I didn't like. Then they'd wander what the horrible meat was, and I'd leave laughing maniacally, them not knowing they just ate the meat of a mythical creature...

I dunna man I don't believe we are above any other animals. I think yes we have developed a lot and definitely haveamazing minds, but theres noone that can tell us animals don't. we don't connect enough with them to be able to tell and they are still amazing beings in their own way and I think we're all equal o them.

But I do remember a show once with videos of African animals and human voiceovers... And then an antelope fell in love with a lion or something.

We live in a world in which being just, honorable and noble more often than not leads to people taking advantage of you, while those who are ruthless end up getting farther ahead in life. As Charlie Sheen once said "the best way to avoid having your heart being broken is pretending you don't have any".

I look at all of this and wonder "where is the Love?". As mt608 said, it is possible to obtain fame, power and respect without stomping others. Cooperation is a more evolved strategy than competition.

Well after reading your "Brain Vomit" I realized I hadn't looked at the fact that after so many years we as humans haven't developed from our basic genetic needs just like animals and still do it today. Thus you have changed my view from thinking humans had evolved to seeing its a lie, just like the cake. lD haha

I personally think that what separates humans from animals is the capacity to obtain all those 3 WITHOUT having to step on others, or in the very least, to feel remorse should we do so unintentionally.
The nice way is harder, but possible.

hurp, this was an interesting read. I remember when Meerkat Manor was on tv, they played it like some messed up Big Brother thing. It was interesting to watch, but I never thought about how pathetic humanity is in comparison because... well, anyone with half a brain already knows this.
Whether they admit it or not, we already know that humanity is pathetic, the entire premise of failblog and other entertainment sites on the internet are an outlet from internet goers that hate humanity but are too lazy to do anything about it.

it's the 'too lazy to do anything about it' that will keep the species from ever getting better.

I remember watching that show as a youngster. I guess, it didn't effect me that much as I've always assumed Humans and Animals are the same in their basic desires to survive and such. :) I can totally see your points here though. I myself want a family and to get a better job (which will give me more power and respect, I guess) But I don't think I'd ever be able to kill or manipulate another to get there. :)

The problem, in my opinion, is that we invent these big elaborate backstories as to why the basic animal desires are necessary.

We build these honor, moral, and social normative systems into out societies so that even if you don't want to behave like animals, the culture demands that we do.

I think you're almost there... once the physical and psychological need for these basic wants is overcome we as a species would be able to focus more on seeking enlightenment: pure, unblemished, happiness reached without the pain or sadness of others. All things have an energy, we operate on different wavelengths: we vibrate on a slightly different level as other people/things. Once it is common practice to cause ourselves and allow others to operate freely at the higher wavelengths of happiness we would then become a species of pure energy and would evolve into a different plain of existence.

WOW! I'm gonna go lie down now :)

Not really, only watched some episodes from the very first series (that's 10yrs ago or more!!). This theory comes predominantly from James Redfields' book The Celestine Prophecy. It's a book with soul. Like when you read The Da Vinci Code for the first time before the movie came out or anyone told you the whole plot, and the ideas seemed so new and amazing

I see your point.

I confess all I want in life is money so that I can draw all day without having to worry for food - and thus not having to deal with people. (I work in a call center)

You're an exception. You've evolved.

I, unfortunately am not. I want respect and fame and sex like the grassiest of weasels, only I'm not mean enough to get any of it.

ah well :)

I guess I'm half asexual.

Depending on whether I'm feeling like Ripper or like the name I was born with, I can get from feeling very human - lust, fury, depression - To total blankness - feeling nothing.

Ok I'm bipolar, mind ya.
