The last paragraph of the Origin of Species

Of course he reads it beautifully – few things in my life have inspired me more than the last paragraph of the Origin of Species by Darwin.

I came across that lasf paragraph when I was 11 and it was the most extraordinary discovery of my childhood. Just to come upon that last paragraph.

But what is fascinating to my work is that the piece that Attenborough reads is from the second edition onward he changed the original edit. In his first edition there was no word for Creator.

He left it out. Fear crept into his mind and he reprinted it ever after with the phrase “the creator in it.” When you understand an aspect of Tesla’s work – that seemingly innocuous edit / by Darwin, it doesn’t seem like much. But that I saw into why he was right in the first edition (where he omitted the word creator).

Why it’s so interesting is because Darwin was from England. The country of Angles.

And what is again connected is that the society that flourished under Parmenides…

The single known work of Parmenides is a poem, On Nature, which has survived only in fragmentary form. In this poem, Parmenides describes two views of reality. In “the way of truth”, he explains how reality is one, change is impossible, and existence is timeless, uniform, necessary, and unchanging.

And Darwin in his first edition he wrote:

The most controversial part was that the last sentence of the summary of his piece, which did not include such a creator anywhere:

“There is grandeur in this view of life… whilst this planet has gone cycling…from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”

Instead of their being a creator everything is part of an angled symmetry that stores, no not just stores, but supports, when we actively get out of the way – an incredible path – this is actually Parmenides greatest line

“The mares that carry me as far as longing can reach rode on, once they had come and fetched me onto the legendary road of divinity that carries the man who knows through the vast and dark unknown.”

Paremenides

And when married with Darwin

““from so simple a beginning endless,

whilst this planet has gone cycling, forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”

There is grandeur in this view of life…

For here the mares that pull us are the driving engines of our longing. A get the managment of that right abscess

Well:

The mares hat carry me as far as longing can reach rode on, once they had come and fetched me onto the legendary road of divinity that carries the man who knows through the vast and dark unknown.”

There is within the mind of the mind a hidden intelligence.

Darwin is right.

Parmenides is right

They are not exclusive.

But the creative imagination- that is what informs the mind the mind / and done right,as Parmenides explained it – it creates abundant ecosystems, economies and peace on earth. When man drops the trauma and the victimhood – and penetrates the soil of understanding, then he can navigate reality confident about his expectations as he is raising no opposition to the status quo.

The key difference is that Darwin took it from being about creative gods (noun) isn’t so important as the creative process. You incubate the mind and you gift it a sense of purpose by how you interact with it and we are it and we change it by ourselves transforming. Parmenides essentially intimates with the first line of his poem the agency called a non resistant mind. Assistant versus resistant.

The acorn of a better understanding is an assistant in the growth of the evolution of our epigenetics – meaning when we trust in a better evolved conscious set of steps for our structuring of priorities then the shifts toward the non reactive self reliance of thriving self sufficient is cultivated. I have found that there is a sort of symphony.

In his splendid essay called “On an Apparent Intention in the Fate of the Individual,” Schopenhauer points out that when you reach an advanced age and look back over your lifetime, it can seem to have had a consistent order and plan, as though composed by some novelist. Events that when they occurred had seemed accidental and of little moment turn out to have been indispensable factors in the composition of a consistent plot. So who composed that plot? Schopenhauer suggests that just as your dreams are composed by an aspect of yourself of which your consciousness is unaware, so, too, your whole life is composed by the will within you. And just as people whom you will have met apparently by mere chance became leading agents in the structuring of your life, so, too, will you have served unknowingly as an agent, giving meaning to the lives of others. The whole thing gears together like one big symphony, with everything unconsciously structuring everything else. And Schopenhauer concludes that it is as though our lives were the features of the one great dream of a single dreamer in which all the dream characters dream, too; so that everything links to everything else, moved by the one will to life which is the universal will in nature.

    I’m sorry , beautiful written as it may be , it is flawed . In that nothing has evolved . Mankind is our greatest proof of this error in thinking . As we are fearfully and wonderfully made above all other creatures . The lack of any noticeable evolution in the last 10, 000 years , demonstrate ates . Because we certainly are no smarter or more capable or better at anything we did then to now . If anything we have gotten stupider . And no animal has given birth to anything. It it’s own kind in 10, 000 years . It strands to reason that at least a few species would be in the middle of a visible major change in its process . But none exist . Let us be Realistic in our understanding
    Nathan Curry replied :
    Ax-el Aequatas Veritas you are wrong. It is not flawed. Not remotely. Not even close to remotely. At all.
    Ax-el Aequatas Veritas replied :
    Nathan Curry it is flawed . There’s no evidence to support that. Nothing but hypothesis as d theory . You are not being still enough in your own mind , to see . You have to slow down a little more and your not looking in the right places . At the right things . If you will but do that you will see that the world 🌍 you think you live in , is not the world your living in . There is a truth hiding right in front of you and your walking right over it
    Matthew Davies commented :
    Many dimensions of infinite universe’s haven’t evolved to support life as the universe that is as we know although the inevitable interaction between everything inside and outside the physical dimensions in common that are part of eternal architecture is incomprehensible as we understand
    Nathan Curry commented :
    Not all of us fall into that trap. One among us does not fall into that trap. He is typing these words.
    Matthew Davies commented :
    Yes I get it
    Nathan Curry commented :
    You are beginning – just beginning,…to get the vastness of it.
    But right now on this moonlit ocean, there is only one sailor. That is me.
    Everyone on earth sees it too. Very quickly. Very soon.
    Nathan Curry commented :
    And no one loses out. No one follows. No herd madness. Just glorious happy families.
    Matthew Davies commented :
    Nice 👍
    Ax-el Aequatas Veritas replied :
    Nathan Curry I’m sorry , lol , this is just drivel . The only place this stuff exists is in your mind . Such as your dissertation about men and women and the orgasm and your antidote for the relationship . You know absolutely nothing about women and missed even mention of where the organs begins for a woman . But in short , you write nothing that a woman is interested in . Your arrogance is misplaced .
    Nathan Curry replied :
    Ax-el Aequatas Veritas apology accepted.

    Nathan Curry Lou reeds wild side and bob Marley ? So … your saying your a pot smoking rebel / cross dresser ? Ok .. I guess.. what ever trips your trigger . It by no means defines you as having reached the enlightened plane of a “ bodhisattva” as you so relentlessly claim . It would explain the hint of flamboyance though
    Nathan Curry commented :
    Hint. Dude we have a whole paint set of flamboyance. A really good paint set too. Hints too. All options actually. 😉
    Matthew Davies commented :
    The Rothschild medical institute of academics conveniened in the 1950’s to propose their intentions and ability to manipulate human evolution by implementing social, hormonal technologies
    Matthew Davies commented :
    Nature is so diverse and all incompassing we have nothing to worry about
    Nathan Curry replied :
    Matthew Davies yeah but it was status and static that ran it. You need the dynamism. Fortunately we have that in leaps and bounds. Happy ones too!
    Matthew Davies commented :
    Agreed
    Ax-el Aequatas Veritas replied :
    Nathan Curry a paint set of flamboyant ? Ok .. look I don’t care if your steeped in flames and have powder puffs sticking out your but . And throwing skittles . Personal desire is your choice . And I’m not here to judge . Paint a rainbow on your but and post a picture And I’ll tell you if you if you look pretty or need to change outfits . That’s really off subject .
    Ax-el Aequatas Veritas commented :
    Oh … yeah .. that would explain why you think your right about evolution and everything else . Cuz thats how you talk about anything. Ok I get it . Your not up to proving and stuff . It’s cool
    Nathan Curry commented :
    Look at a bee. Disregard everything I have to say. Just look at a bee.
    See it for what it is.
    Just that. No more.
    Would you pay another to carry your bitterness then?
    Matthew Davies commented :
    Darwin’s father was a Templar?
    Ax-el Aequatas Veritas replied :
    Nathan Curry shit just say change geArs bro . GeR changed . Would I pay another to carry my bitterness. ? Well , I don’t have bitterness, not your understanding of it . I carry sorrow . Deep sorrow . Not a burden I’d let one carry for me . It’s heavy . Would I want relief ? I don’t know anymore . It was so great and terrible over the years , thT I finally embraced it . I never found the way to ghost it . . But what a novel idea . To pay a pain mule
    Matthew Davies commented :
    The book of Enoch? human origin??
    Ax-el Aequatas Veritas replied :
    Matthew Davies much truth exposed in Enoch
    Matthew Davies commented :
    When Greek academics explored Egypt when they asked who built the pyramids Egyptian museum (curators of history) showed records that dated the pyramids as archilogical discoveries predating the Egyptian civilization
