The Conscious and The Unconscious

ID and ego

As we can see, of the two regions of the mind, the unconscious is the largest and a true representation of the person – except in the case of the rationalist. The conscious (ego) is simply a “rewiring” of the unconscious and through which one perceives the physical world. We can think of the unconscious as soil and the conscious as a tree that grows on the soil. The tree, the fact that it emerges in adulthood, owes its growth and strength to the soil and although it is prominent, it ultimately, is serving the interest of the soil (unconscious).

Freud and Jung often presented the conscious (ego) as a separate entity but to me, it appears to be an extension of one entity – whereas one region has to do with the inner world and the other the outer. Rationalists concern themselves with only reason and therefore the conscious, and they reject the supernatural and therefore the existence of unconscious. But the unconscious is very powerful, we owe all our mental energy to it. In fact even the ego, no matter how large it is, owes its energy to the unconscious and is easily crashed when it loses the backing of the unconscious. At one time, Freud retorted: “More people believe in the existence of the virgin Mary than in the existence of the unconscious mind.”

A collapse of the unconscious spells the end of one’s life. Of course, most people now believe in the existence of the unconscious but the delusion here is that, because the unconscious is difficult to understand the fact that it communicates in symbolic language, they believe the conscious mind is actually in charge. Yes it is, but only superficially. This scenario reminds me of a local watchmen who, whenever his boss is not around, posses as the boss and often succeeds in deceiving and taking advantage of young female visitors….but it’s only a matter of time that the true boss will be known.

Holes In The Theory of Evolution

I’m speaking here of the idea that humans and other mammals evolved from a common ancestor. This common ancestor is not always named. Once upon a time it was “Lucy”, then came Homo erectus, after that, “Turkana Boy,” followed by Neanderthal and now we have a new South African neighbor called Homo naledi (That sounds like na lady?). So are….are we gonna have “na gentlemen” in the near future? ….Very funny mind games!

Secondly, there are questions that I want answered by evolutionists. Kindly note that the core concept of evolution, including natural selection, was based on Darwinian principles and according to Richard Dawkins, Darwin was completely wrong about genetics and hereditary. So this leaves us with his classification simply based on anatomy. I have faced many objections from proponents of evolution saying that the theory was not based exclusively on similarities in anatomy. So what new evidence do they have?

Questions:

(1) If evolution is a fact how did the human heart evolve, since all locomotive mammals and possibly other organisms must poses a heart from the moment of existence.

(2) If evolution is a fact how did the sexes of animals originate? Since micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, protozoons and even trees are asexual.

(3) Evolutionists have consistently failed to show us all the “missing links” between chimp and human, fish and bird, amphibian and reptile, cockroach and spider etc. Please show us all the missing links.

(4) Every organism, even of the same parentage, has a unique immune system (please don’t confuse it with antibiotic resistance) that, after first infection, automatically gives the organism a lifetime immunity from the disease. Will you say such a specialized system evolved or was designed?

With this unanswered questions, I think I have punched four holes in the theory of evolution, case closed. Evolution is even more of a philosophy than a science because it is not immediately observable. DID anyone see one organism transform into another? DID Darwin see it? DID you see it? If no, case closed.

All The World Is But A Playground

All the world is but a playground,

Like the play of a young man and a maiden,

Like the play of a child and a balloon,

Like the play of kittens and puppies,

Like the play of a serpent and a mongoose.

All the world is but a playground,

Only to awake at the sight of our grave.
