As I was your age or a bit older, I started to ask questions related to what controls this universe. I read many books, and asked many friends. I jumped between many spiritual, philosophical, and scientific journeys. However, only recently I started to approach this question through thinking of the history of humanity. This letter is my most recent attempt to answer
Just recently it occurred to me that longtime ago and at the start of cognition, there were names to learn. Random sounds gradually gave place to proper sentences. Reasoning followed, so was discovering and understanding the nature’s laws of interactions and communications.
Unmasking different levels or types of awareness started sometime after that. Human became quickly accustomed to the pleasure of these newly discovered states of body or mind. Richness, powerfullness, corruption, wiseness, drunkenness, and many other types of existence sprouted everywhere. Somehow, they polluted or enriched the world of man.
The above is a way of understanding the history of life as we know it. I am sure, you will read or hear many other explanations. Most importantly for me is the fact that all names, languages, laws, ideas, levels of awareness, experiences, and types of existence have been present since the start of time. Human have only been discovering them at different times.
Life has been continuously teaching the human race, that they have bearly scratched the surface of knowledge on their quest for meaning, and that they should expect much more wisdom to unearth.
Some people explain the above events by chances or random occurances, others mention evolution processes, and many believe solely in the cleaverness of our species. Personally, and though I believe that different theories explain different parts of the truth, I am still somehow adment that all are orchestrated by a Creator best known as a God!
