I was thinking about Spiritual growth and how it is we look inwardly to the Christ Spirit for guidance and values and the thought occurred that the nature of nature is sociopathic. If it were not sociopathic it could not survive. This notion is reinforced by the ancient symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake or dragon consuming its own tail. This world survives by consuming itself and regenerating. Plant life gets its nutrients from soil, soil is made up of decomposed matter, flesh and plant. Animal life survives by consuming other animals and or plants, as does the human animal we are imprisoned within. If you think about it, if by nature all creatures had empathy, and compassion, could think to put themselves in the shoes of the creature they were stalking for food, would they continue to hunt, No, I don't think so. Would the cycle of "life" as they say continue? No it wouldn't. This is what separates the human from the animal we inhabit and the animal kingdom in general. Sociopathy is the Demiurges world and law, dog eat dog. It is a base existence. Our escape from this 'life cycle' is the Truth through Christ giving us conscious, empathy, compassion and love through His word raising us above the base existence to life, true life which is Spirit and Soul together as one in Christ. Without the sociopathic thinking being by nature the norm for the animal kingdom life on earth would not continue to exist. This is why once a person finds the Truth they stop procreating and are thankful to the Ineffable Father for the hope of salvation through Christ. Any thoughts on this?
