A user wrote that, "Darwin's law of survival of the fittest comes to mind....lol"
and i get the joke of course and i think we are all used to hearing or even making such a joke - indeed, life is war and survival is paramount, but what i seek is not some utopia, free of conflict, but rather a certain demeanor in fighting.
what goes with this code?
mercy and humility go with this code, especially to our fellow man and to all organic life really.
Indeed it was this very conception that set me down the path, it was this Tone that allowed me to find the Way.
let him who has understanding find nourishment in these lines.
for this is manna and nectar:
it is our destiny to become steward over organic life in the universe and to, like taoist gardeners, using humble means, construct a garden utopia within this universe.
i do not say this looking for followers, for what are all followers worth? (if you would seek followers: Seek naughts) a warning to all systematizers.
i get the joke though.
I guess I am just inescapably fascinated by the notion that the joke may be on us ...
Survival of the Fittest: for what is, given that we can never know really what is best or what shall prove useful against prevailing circumstance, fittest? is it not the height of arrogance for man to say to those humans who are born what defines fitness? what does it mean to be human? shall we ever believe that some synthetic definition should over ride the chance to realize one's full potential? at any rate, i have drawn my sword on this account, it is for the future i fight, i will see every human being born given the chance to reach their potential and i will crush without mercy, all those who deny the future this right.
