The human identity in evolution

We humans are born into a world of change. There are so many important things that are communicated towards our brain and our identity. We take those things and developments for real. We think this is the world. Although this is nothing else than a certain part of time the world is actually in right now.

We take so many things for granted. Things like borders, languages, images, technologies and such. We do think that at least by applying conspiracy theories we intellectually cover the actual world in its entirety. By doing that we do not take into account that e.g. secret services are also run by normal human people and not by super heroes. Just because: Super heroes do not exist. This imagination is about ourselves; it is about our wishes, our inner longings and our inspirations. Finally it is about evolution. This very term and process that created our brains, our thoughts and each and every thing we do.

Neuroscience discovered that if you open one’s head and begin to manipulate the electrical signals in the brain, the person that is being manipulated thinks he or she is actually doing what she or he wants to do. Those scientists were really happy about their discoveries. Yet, they did not think about two things: 1st: If you open one’s head and manipulate it, this is a process that takes away the “entity status” of the treated person, so that one cannot consider this person as being an independent individual anymore (probably this is the very basis of the Hippocratic Oath). And 2nd – and even more important in this context – the people that open the brain did not consider themselves as tools, as algorithms or mechanisms that are used as objects as well.

Even today scientifically educated people differ between nature and culture. People think the so called “culture” began when the very first intelligent human being entered the stage of earthly developement. Only very few people take into consideration that maybe all of our importances are just an expression of a supertemporary piece of code that appears in time and in evolution on a supertiny perceptive basis – and that in every way and in every time “culture” is only a tiny and temporary part of the ongoing process of nature.
