In recent blog posts I’ve written that the ‘Beyond Humanity’ subtitle to XaW Files, my seventh published book, and third of the new self-proclaimed genius (self-parody) but ignored by British society and hence the world (not parody: a la Turing and Tesla being largely ignored in their lives [double link to my previous blog about my genius on the greeenYgrey3 blog, and current Tesla car company CEO and recent blog post star Elon Musk in one sentence!] ) concept of fantasy travelling by web maps and information, inspired by my world travels over thirty years, had a social side (beyond modern history culture) and personal side (me beyond politics and monotonous bickering, tit-for-tat political decisions by each government keeping the status quo rather than progressing society).
3rd Dimension of a Trilogy 3rd Book Subtitle
The third side of the trilogy subtitle is that of the cover star, the sun, and the protagonist, the greenYgrey, which are both beyond humanity in space.
The greenYgrey exited into space in the last episode of XaW Files, which also contained this very a-musing piece of philosophy, that as I remember entered my mind late in the day, rather than at a time of coffilosophy (like now!), after hearing of the I.S. destruction of old pagan temples such as Palmyra, and the beheading of a local who tried to defend them, as well as the genocide of the Yazidis:
‘I.S. destroys humans and their temples because they only have human powers themselves. They will never reach the sun and moon, and other stars and planets, which are the only constructions that really matter to life on Earth, and our planet itself. The universe began billions of years before their sect, and life on Earth millions; and they will live for millions and billions of years afterwards too. The sun and moon will always rise and set, and the stars will always sparkle at night.’
I.S. seemed in the ascendency then, but have since crumbled in Iraq and much of Syria, although others like them are still a threat in the region and elsewhere in the world.
The sun is not totally beyond humanity, as we can see and study it, and we’re supposed to be sending a probe to the sun’s outer corona next year.
However, the sun’s beyond our control or destruction, unlike our planet. That fact seems to anger some humans: those who think humanity should be all powerful; often those who think they are God’s chosen creation, creating God’s image in their own, replacing the sun and other deities.
Humanity Fights for Locality, not God or Existence
I don’t know if the sun has any spirituality, but I do know it’s our star, creating life on Earth, which orbits it, and it is more visible in space than our planet, which is itself beautiful; our planet in space is more colourful than the sun, but not as important, maybe like a ring compared to a watch.
The trilogy of our place in the known universe is even bigger and better than my greenYgrey one (self-parody!):
- We are in a solar system, one planet circling our star:
2. Our sun is one of billions in the Milky Way (named by us! Chocolate named after it!!):
3. The Milky Way is one galaxy of billions in the known universe:
While holy fighters such as I.S. and the Taliban think they are dying for some great cause that is much bigger than themselves or humanity, or at least 72 virgins in paradise, in reality they are usually just evidence of the human brain shrunk to its minimum philosophical thinking level by brainwashing.
While that could be said to be true of most societies and cultures, and ideological indoctrination, most have more freedom of information and choice; with Islamist brainwashing starting straight away with their superiority asserted through bestselling in their cultures atrocity videos; and therefore opportunity for the human brain to develop, analyse and choose.
British Society and Culture
Admittedly, the choice for most people is limited, and most choose their local ideology, either because they believe in it, or it’s the easiest way to live. I’m not against locality or the military, just against brainwashing and mindlessness. While in my youth I looked for a utopia, in my middle-age I’m just trying to avoid dystopia.
I don’t know if that’s just the normal way it works, and the country doesn’t look as bad to youth as it does to me, or better or worse than the country did to me when I was a youth!? Ironically, youth are said to be the ones wanting more openness and immigration, but they seem the ones most at risk, from grooming and gang violence; as well as losing their country and environment.
Or is it that more of the youth don’t feel that risk, because they feel out of harm’s way in the more politically active higher classes; or they are willing to take that risk, because they feel the positives outweigh the negatives: freedom over safety, drugs over domesticity.
The difference in ages probably is a factor, with youth having more energy, and desire to move and wander, while older people are more settled and defensive of their property. I remember being the former and not really understanding the latter, but now I’m older and feel in the greenYgrey middle I think I’m perfectly positioned to know it all!
