Why can't humanity transcend survival?

@thisintegrated You have orange competitiveness. Now stay mad 


Hark ye yet again — the little lower layer. All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event — in the living act, the undoubted deed — there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike through the mask! How can the prisoner reach outside except by thrusting through the wall? To me, the white whale is that wall, shoved near to me. Sometimes I think there's naught beyond. But 'tis enough

lol

I just have an intellectual mind.  From the outside it may look like I'm "competitive", but I challenge myself more than anyone else.

I also tend to view challenges from others as games.  Makes it more fun.  I'd have a medieval duel with you if I could, for fun, and this is the next best thing.

Speaking of people that talk about green without having been in.

Who me? Apparently, thisintegrated thinks I'm Green, so I obviously must be :P


To balance beauty and complexity so perfectly is a divine mystery.

Nah, I don't think you're Green.  Clearly something from tier 3.

I've no idea what stage you're actually at, but if I had to guess, maybe Green.

@Danioover9000  No separated self doesn't entail experiences are not part of a universe realizing itself.

Survival is implicit in any finite existence. It's not about humans: from atoms, through animals, to angels, survival defines individual existence. It's all about the degree of survival: if you, as a human, survive like a dog, eating, pooping and socialising by pissing around, you don't have to be a human, you can be a dog. On the contrary, if as a human, you die as an animal and survive as a spirit you become an angel/demon, but there's still the need to survive, eating emotions. To transcend totally survival you don't to be enlightened, because you would still survive like Jesus, Buddha, or whoever. Instead, transcending survival means to die forever and ever, and perceive nothing and nothing but pure consciousness. How boring would that be? Would you really want to? No, you don't, otherwise you wouldn't be here as a human already, nor looking for becoming a spirit. The way is looooooong, to not bore Yourself and experience.
