Ants and human purpose

Image

Imagine you are an ant, what do you see? What do you smell? What drives you? Is there inspiration in your ant life?

From an ant perspective, human beings are super giants. The ant – human proportion is like the Empire state building – human proportion. it’s impossible to refer to a living creature the size of the Empire state building because our faculties are attuned to deal with the ordinary human scale.

The longevity of ants depends on function, male live few weeks, the workers live about 2 years and the queen can live more than 20 years. So for a male ant life is a very short term journey, but do the male ant realize it? Probably for the male ant it lives long and prosperous life because all male ants are in the same life boat.

Ants are one of the most ancient planetary species they exist more than 100 million years and evolve constantly till nowadays they represent one of the most intricate social colonies with high communication skills based on pheromones sharing.

If you have read my articles before you should know by now that ants are not my main interest, human beings are and what I am trying to demonstrate in this short article is that our world is narrow and limited much more than the ant world, I say much more because in the human case there is the awareness and consciousness that makes this understanding critical for real life evaluation.

The human span of life is about 29000 days or about 80 planetary orbits around the Sun or about 1000 moon orbits around planet Earth or 0.000023 of the solar system orbit around the center of the Milky Way galaxy. In galactic terms our physical bodies don’t exist or if exists they are unnoticed as the male ant short life span. The male ant is not aware of it as most of human beings are not aware of the limited time span they have on this planet. What differs us from ants is the possibility to ponder about our lives and the choices we have got within our life system to ignore this disturbing question and treat our bodies as the sole marvel of creation.

As ants live in societies so human do as ants have specific rule on this planet so human do, as ants have so limited time to fulfill their mission so human do.

The physical human scale can last for 80 years but its energetic field that can be classified as spirit lives forever and with it the notion that there is a reason for human beings to live on this planet, this reason has to do with a human global energetic radiation that is a feed to this planet, this aim can’t be achieved only by individuals, but by an ant based harmonious society in which individuals share their authentic spirits for personal and planetary development.

 Have magic in your life
