You are an animal and so I am!




You are an animal, do not look at me like this. You are an animal and so am I. All humans are animals, and in some cases, we should apologize to the animals for being the same family. You probably know we belong to the order of primates, that is, of monkeys, to the family of hominids and to the class of mammals. There is no possible discussion about it.
And now you can tell me not without some reason:
- You have spent eleven podcasts talking about the wonderful product that human being is and now… you release this? That we are only animals?
And I answer you:
-Politeness does not eliminate the brave. It is true that we are an exceptional product in the universe, it is true that we have an incredible equipment about we know almost nothing. And it is also true that we do not know how we function. But we are animals. And I'm going to tell you something that you may not like:
«We are predatory animals»
What?
Yes, that is! And due to the incredible equipment we have, we are the worst predators of all, capable of extinguishing other animal species, even sometimes not by hunger but by whim, fun or ambition.
Nor is there any discussion about it. All you need is taking a look at the planet we live on. And here you can start thinking that we are shit.
Do not! Stop! We are still wonderful beings, but we are animals and we are predators.
I make a clarification: almost all animals are predators. That is, every living being that is not capable of producing its own food must feed on other living beings. And that makes it a predator. On this planet, except for most plants and trees, everything else is predatory.
Do you feel a little comfort?
Then let's continue.
As we cannot do anything but depredate and we have an extraordinary equipment that we do not know how to use, we have become unconscious predators. That is, a baby with a grenade (those that explode) in the hand.
What is the solution? Make us aware. How is it done? Waking up. How do we wake up? Realizing that, we are not our mind and training her to obey and occupy the rightful place, that of secretary and not boss. And who is the boss?
If you want to know, I invite you to read the other posts of my website.
And here perhaps you could ask if waking up we would stop being predators.
No. It is our nature, but we would look for ways to depredate respecting the balance of the planet. We have such a sophisticated mind for doing it.
And now I'm going to go a step further. I want to enter personal relationships of individuals of our own species. Because maybe you do not feel like a predator. Perhaps you are a person who tries to be nice and get along with everyone. You avoid conflicts, you are polite and courteous because you have been taught that way. Then, I will tell you something that you would not like:
If you are not a predator, you are a victim, you are a prey.
That is because human being, as a global predator, also depredates its own species. I'm not telling you anything new, it's enough to read a little history and watch the news. And this predation is not for eating, it is for satisfying ambition, the desire of power and hatred ...
Today, although thousands of people are still killed every day, it is not usual for someone to go down the street murdering. Predation methods have been sophisticated so that blood does not run, but they are still ways in which human animals that know what they want, use other humans to satisfy their needs. In this way there is an emotional, physical, labour, economic and even amorous depredation.
Think about it! If you are an animal that seeks to please, that seeks recognition, that believes necessary demonstrating how good and friendly you are, you are almost certainly food for predators.
It's not your fault! Surely that need was created when you were a child and supported by a huge number of predators to whom it was convenient that you would be like that.
It is told by someone who was a prey, almost all his life. In the eagerness to please, to be kind and conciliatory, we, the preys, put ourselves at the service of others over our own interests and needs. And those needs are as valid as those of any other.
The predator does not care about conflicts because their interests are ahead of everything. That's why in general they do not have them. The other predators do not see them as possible victims, maybe as rivals, but not as victims. And almost always achieve their goal either because there are thousands of possible victims or because they have fewer obstacles and difficulties to overcome.
That is why it is important to accept that we are animals and that we are a predatory species. From there we can become aware and awake predators, who know what they are and try to use their intelligence to achieve their goals without being destructive. Or remain predators without control, scruples and limits and continue to devastate the planet and submitting others of the same species.
If you have discovered that you have been, or are a prey, a victim, meditate on the fact and change! You do not have to prove anything! You do not need to be servile to be helpful, you do not need to be a victim to be loved, you do not have to sacrifice your happiness for others to be happy.
Be the animal you are and realise about your capacity to depredate! And then use your equipment thoroughly.
