It is strange, we seem to label things we don’t like as parasites. But in reality everything that is using something else to survive, is really only trying to live. If you look at it, every single thing in reality seems to be a parasite in one way or another, living only by the ingestion of another form of life, but they are actually not bad at all, only perceived that way.
We look at our crops being “killed” by parasites so we kill them off as if they are not just natural creatures only trying to live, funny thing is they are doing to the plant the same thing we would do to it, taking it in so they can survive, and we kill them for it. We as humans are pretty selfish and label many things as the enemy only for the good of ourselves, as if everything is not here for a purpose. Truth is most things we fight we are only fighting them to benefit ourselves, selfishly.
The spider actually sucks blood, the life force out of beings to survive, how unreal and morbid does that seem? Tics also do the same, all to survive, not to go out of their way to be a dick, but to live more life and not die off. Dung beetles actually live off shit, all of these examples are so wild they would be hard to believe if we had not known and someone told us for the first time, I will explain this more in a moment. Then of course we have us, humans, probably the biggest parasite we can monitor. We kill all life forms to live, plants, natural resources, most all animals, some cultures also drink and or eat blood, and to go strangely further, for “fun” some even parasitically swallow reproductive live organisms. In other words, even not to survive we take life, it is just how this “place” seems to work.
I had some time tonight to get into a meditative state which I don’t often do. A strange thought came to mind. I was reminded of a basic statement I read in a book about a year or so ago. It said something like ” There are always beings below you and always beings above you, “life” keeps getting smaller, and grows bigger never ending. For example, under us, perhaps less sentient are animals, then bugs then microorganisms. And then I thought “hmm, what is bigger than us, what is more sentient than us and where are they?”
Have you heard of an over soul or the idea of twin flames or soul mates? An over soul is the “idea” that there is perhaps an unlimited amount of “beings” of higher knowledge than us. These over souls break into little pieces to form different groups of humans on earth. And the twin flame or soul mate fits in here by meeting another piece of the over soul that broke apart, this supposedly can happen with friends too, people who you just seem to know, or feel extremely linked to.
So, I got this picture in my head of what this over soul could look like. First off, clearly not visible to our eye, second, fucking huge, especially if it branches off into hundreds of people. I also picture it looking kind of like a jelly fish and each tentacle touches the head of a person.
If we go back to the idea that everything is a predator and parasite, what does the higher soul or oversoul ingest or “take in” in order to keep living? What if it takes microorganisms and uses them to create beings, us, and then feeds off us while we live? What if it put itself into us so it could predestine our lives to procreate to create more for it to live off of? Scary? strange? I thought this idea up also because I think this “God” thing we talk about may be more like nature and has to live off something, as we all do. But then the scary idea comes into mind, if it formed humans to feed off of, then we die, our bodies, that would be it, no afterlife no more nothing, we were used for our purpose.
So then when spirituality is discussed and many gurus talk about “us” not being our bodies, what if we ARE actually just our bodies? And the thing that we feel looking over of us and the thing that is in us other than “us” is actually that living higher being? And when it is done with our body it just takes itself back, and we are done?
I like ideas, and even more so I like strange ideas. Everything is a what if to me, but I thought this was a pretty neat way to look at life and “higher beings”. What do you think about this idea? Do you have a similar idea or something that could expand this wild mind fuck??
