Evolution Through Comprehension or Functionality:A Question of Physics or Human Nature
Can we actively participate in our process of evolution or are we just mere observers of the cycle of life?Ask yourself if Biology has anything to do with morals, ethics, and spirituality. Does photosynthesis occur due to a moral standard, or, is it the result of countless evolutionarysteps?Why would we, the human beings,
 function
differently? We can interpret everything inas many ways as we can, but when it comes to functioning, do we organically functiondue to a spiritual, moral, or ethical set of standards, or, every process that takes placewithin our body is the result of countless evolutionary steps?The greatest error humans have been making ever since we know about ourselves - in a"conscious/aware" sense of the knowing - is that we have been obsessively trying to
humanly comprehend 
all matters related to our nature and to the universe around us,rather than functionally exploring and experiencing the phenomena within and aroundourselves.A simple example is one of doing push-ups. We can all discuss and analyze push-upsuntil we comprehend everything that there is to know about it, yet, if we do not actuallytrain and do the push-ups, we have no experiential knowledge of them. Just because wecomprehend everything about push-ups does not automatically imply that we are physically trained to do fifty of them in a row.Although it may seem a lot more complicated than that, it is very much the same with theway our brain functions. There are countless books and theories available, and countlessmore appear almost every day, about the nature of the brain. We can all discuss andanalyze how the brain, consciousness, the mind, and the self work - until we comprehendeverything that there is to know about it, yet, if we do not actually actively access the processes at work in our brain, we have no experiential knowledge of them.Humans have taken the road of comprehension - which is an interpretative process -rather than pursuing the way of experiential learning. This paradoxically happened because of our brain's ability to create what we call the mind through a process we refer to as consciousness. From generation to generation, the human species became more andmore addicted to its own image and lost in the interpretative process.
