It has often been a topic of debate, what humans 'are'. Religion often tells us that humans are above animals, science often tells us we are the animals. But one remarkable trait that humans show that is diffrent from their counterpart animals is that they do not have a circle of life ideology. Humans simply destroy or exhume whatever is in their path and move onto another area, they do not balance things out with the ecosystem. Their is seemingly only one organism that Humans share this unique quality with, a virus.

Will humans of the future simply move from planet to planet, as a virus moves from body to body until the source dies and the virus/human moves onto another?

Too much of a good thing can be detrimental for the soul, Mad Max. No more "Matrix" re-runs for you in awhile!

Max - by the time humans HAVE to move to other life supporting planets (soonish) time would of run out.

That sounds like Agent Smith's theory in the Matrix movie.

Your observation of structure is promising. Was it a conscious thought or was an instinct ?

Hard to be balanced when we are in a hierarchal paradigm. We are struggling to create a rounder world. When we realize it, it will get easier by way of identifying our goal.

If we don't morph the structure, probably. The key benefit of completing the balanced capitalist model is not so much in the amount of wealth that can be created and distributed according to more accessable opportunity for each individual, but the greatest benefit is in WHAT is produced and consumed, which is currently supply driven.

What distinguishes us from animals is that we can "fall" and get back up. The animals play within the circle of life based on instinct. We can only do this on conscious thought, which may well be a "back-up" to instinct that we may have lost. In some respects , science and theology (distinct from religion) can both be right.

The script is already written. There is nothing new under the sun.

Max we may be set out of the circle of life becuase of ideology and to science we may be considerd animals but it was an adaptation we were not like a virus and were created to edit or destroy we adapted and it could have hapened to any animal. Humans arnt anything special wewere just like any other animal and were created from the same basic cells(or something like that im too lazy to look so someone tell me if they find anything)however after millions of years of evoloution the basic humans were physicaly less agile and weaker than most of the other animals so the started to learn to observe their environment which eventually turned into mental thought and the consious ability to adapt(please tell me if that made any sence)

Made enough sense, anyways Welcome to the forum Kiyoshi, it is an intrinsic thought that prehaps the virus like nature of humans is simply a natural evolution, however has nature adapted itself for intelligence and cognitive abilities? or has it simply left a good portion of this out of the equation?

That is most definately hippie science, no offense. Animals don't give a F**K about the ecosystem, the only reason they aren't destroying it is because they are all pathetically inferior to us.

IMO, we won't be moving around much at all, maybe terraforming mars or building bases on the moon, but that is probably it for a loooooong time. It is almost impossible to tell, however, as it all really depends as to how research in theoretical physics goes. Our technology will move towards incredible effeciency as we fully realize the necessity of the health of planet Earth.

This assumes, of course, that we last out the next few decades, which is probably up to how succesfull Transhumanism is.

I think personally that animals display various levels of emotion and intelligence and manage to live thier lives on this planet successfully and in harmony with planet earth. When humans appeared from whatever theory you wish to believe they were given the ability to percieve other options than survival and a choice of changing thier surroundings and the way they lived. Unfortunately human beings have used thier enlightenment and perceptions to try and create a controlled enviroment in order to feel safe and comfortable. Maybe if we worked together to keep balance as well as look towards other life in the universe and development of our global consiousness things may have turned out different.

By living in a controlled enviroment with illusion of money and materialism has caused humans to become greedy and selfish. Even though technology and communication has been created to the point we can all communicate quicker and easier we seem to be stuck up our own ass in our own little battle against each other over religion and even the colour of our skin and have managed to destroy the planet in such a small amount of time that i wonder if we will ever be able to put things right even if we tried.

No wonder no other intelligent life in the universe wants to comunicate with us, if we cant even talk and listen to ourselves.
