Ecce homo! Seeking the relationship of man and God based on the directions of the today religions

1. Creation of man and other living creatures, and relationships between them.

Officially accepted theory: Evolution as a natural process, just like the rest, must be dependent on First Cause. In addition The First Cause and her rights are responsible for the development of the baby in the womb. God created us not only as a species but also as individuals. This applies to all living organisms.

Human is the most developed form of living being. Still, he is still an animal and he comes from them. Both humans and other species have awareness, emotions, interest  in the world and are able to think. The type of thinking and the degree of advancement are different for each species. Same with emotion. All this is dependent on brain structure. With the development of science we discover how much we are similar to other animals. Man is distinguished above all by: body building enabling the development of civilization of our specie, the need for the development and improvement of tools, advanced communication enabling the transmission and understanding of complex messages. Thinking (mainly abstract) and emotions are common traits of species, but humans are best developed. Most of these features are good developed because of frontal lobe of the brain. After its damage often occurs morality disorders, behavioral inhibition, emotional disorders etc. It is said that man becomes ” wild “.

  • “Free will”

This is commonly referred to as making a free choice without being restricted to anyone. In monotheistic religions explained as the choice between good and evil.

Does man have a free will? His behavior always depends on his perceptions, personality traits, emotions and control over them, and the patterns of subconscious.

Do other animals certainly have free will? They are aware, perceive, analyze, make decisions. There are acts that are difficult to justify goodness or evil. The fact is, however, that they more often surrender to the group than their own good.

Here are examples where animals show their will to act:

For every animal species, each behavior has its motive – most often it results from perception, comfort or mental discomfort, and even from brain disorders (mental illness).

The free will does not exist. It is a product of humans and results from the observation of developmental constraints of other animals.

Animals have smaller needs and opportunities, so we think they cant make the choices. But the above examples show that it is completely different.  I think that The First Cause had its purpose to create such a creature like a human, if the theory of evolution is true. Our qualities have helped us dominate other animals and allow us to know the universe. Human reflects the purpose of nature (its purpose is development, ours too).

So why The first Cause needs a human ?

Hypotheses – we are the result of an experiment of evolution (though in nature everything seems intentional); The First Cause needs us maybe to discover / do something.
It is possible that our species is not the final form. Perhaps evolution will create an even better animal.

  • The soul

Characteristics of souls (according to previous religions): immateriality, consciousness, mind, destiny, energy of life, element of good in man. The First Cause fulfills the whole universe and therefore is also present in us. By virtue of its action our organism lives. First Cause has reason, so the part of her which we have inside us , must have it too.

Does the soul described above have some connection with our consciousness?

Awareness is a mechanism for processing and integrating stimuli, analyzing them, and generating responses.  There is also the awareness of one’s own existence and thinking of “I”. The first type of consciousness is conditioned by the biology of our brain. The other is not sure. If science does not find the location of” I” consciousness in the brain, it can be assumed that it is part of something more, perhaps a being called a soul . Then the brain can be called an adaptive mechanism for the soul. 

If consciousness” I” has no connection with biology so it is part of The First Cause, but since we do not feel force majeure, this part must be somehow separate. Our soul would be independent and have free will, but with a biology-dependent, or First Cause’s way of perceiving. If consciousness of” I” is related to biology -> we exist thanks to First Cause and we are its creation, and the part of the First Cause , which is a soul present in us, has no relation to our consciousness. We feel independent thinking, so in this case we also have free will while limiting dependency and perception.

The above statement applies to every living being.

  • Communication of our consciousness with First Cause

The above theories can not exclude this. Officially, however, the impact of consciousness on matter has not been confirmed. Some people think they can manage events around themselves or their own bodies, others do not. It is known, however, that one can change one’s attitude, and through it and perception, so we can feel the impression of the bad luck or happiness. Thought also affects hormones, and these affect emotions and internal organs, helping to develop disease or increase immunity (psychosomatics). Other theory – Activation of 100% of our brain would allow us to control matter.  The direct effect of thought on matter beyond our body is impossible – we do not have a neuronal connection to the environment; Adding to such a feature would cause chaos.  However, it is not possible to exclude mutual communication with First Cause. Question: HOW? Will the thoughts alone suffice? Do we only care about unaware fears and needs? Should we enter into a trans? There is no certainty in this area yet.

  • Destiny/fate

The theory does not exclude it. No research in this field has ever been conducted (it is not known whether they can be carried out), so it is hard to conclusively state the existence and the rules of functioning of destination. Subjective evaluation is also difficult because psychological mechanisms must be taken into account. The sense of destiny itself can be a mechanism for the need for safety and avoidance of problems. As a psychological mechanism, each of us would use destiny for other purposes – some of us as motivates for action, another – calms down.

Definition of destiny – the way of life in which we can satisfy our desires, which is based on actions that are in accordance with our predispositions (both visible and hidden), which affects our development and which brings total satisfaction in life. Destination can be the whole stage of life or process, leading to one particular event.  By nature we differ from each other by the characteristics of personality, interest and skill. We have a chance to see them and nurture them. Indirectly The First Cause determines the destiny of each of us. Because we are independent in thinking, we can not expect that anything will do for us by itself. Through his vanity and false visions of the past religions, man has become passive and expects God to give him everything for free. The reality, our experience and our ancestors show that the destiny- we have to reach by ourselves.

Nature glorifies units of deed. Action activates faith, hope, sense of power and sense of providence of force majeure. It can be called a normal mental mechanism. But how else would First Cause show his concern if not through mechanisms known to our brain?

Summary: The existence of a destination can not be ruled out. Destiny is the way of life that will give us satisfaction and which will be in accordance with our predispositions. Everyone has the chance to see it, but only by acts we can reach it. The greater the commitment, the greater the support of the High Being. (The law of nature – the strongest, the most active wins, passive – will be more secure, but always subordinate and dependent).

  • Life after death

It is impossible to tell what happens after death. My concept assumes various possibilities: reincarnation, union with First Cause’s consciousness, eternal nothingness (unnoticed). Intangible consciousness refers to the first two theories. Biological awareness to the third( it will be difficult to feel if the brain will disappears).

Having no certainty of living after death, we should engage more in the present. Time to end the epoch of death, in which human potential devoted to the preparation for “eternal” life. Instead of dreaming of paradise, let’s create it here by raising our awareness of being part of the universe, about relationships between people , with nature – rational and responsible use of its benefits.

Daria Anna

My name is Daria. From birth I live in Poland. I study psychology at the University of Lodz. My interests are focused on the problems of people, observation of relationships between them, getting to know the spiritual sphere and also their views of life. I’m interested in the influence of culture and religion on human life, its role and place in the world.
In my free time I train archery and write novels and essays. Since childhood I have liked writing poetry, short stories, which were published then. In 2015 I wrote my first book entitled “The natural order of the universe, that is the story of True God”, which is a philosophical treatise containing an attempt to answer the following questions: What should be the humanity aim? What is the meaning of our existence and other entities? How can we reconcile science with religion?
