Boundaries, flags and conflict.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

First there were animals with territorial boundaries, then there were humans with territorial boundaries who later added national flags. Both territorial boundaries and national flags create the mentality which makes the weakness of conflict flourish.

  1. Alex Jones says:

    Strife is the reality of the universe, be it between stars, animals or mankind. All animals and plants need energy to live, grow and reproduce; they create a territory and an authority over that territory to gather enough energy for their purposes of existence. Often other plants and animals infringe upon the territory of others so then there is conflict. The universe makes no allowances for fairness or defending the less able to defend their territory.

    I agree Ian, it’s not that the universe makes no allowances, it’s that we have the power to be better than that, and we do it because we know we are better than the system as it is naturally, and in that sense we are still of the universe, but have become better than it too.

      Hi and welcome to this place!
      To clarify my point without denigrating yours let me quote Jesus in this instance:”You are in this world, not of this world.” My discoveries are in my writings and concurred.
