Imagining a time where primitive animals and humans could communicate as equals and were respected as such.
They were magical and exciting but harmonic times.
They knew the language of all the animals, they felt the vibrations and messages of the plants, majestic trees.
Even understood the whispers of the elements through the wind as a perennial messenger.
But one day someone among the hominids who liked to create stories a little bunch of them imagined a different new story.
They proclaimed the existence of a god over all gods which was theirs making them unique, special, and superior to the others.
Therefore, they had more rights to the places and fruits of the land, rivers, lakes, oceans, and even the giant mountain ranges with their majestic peaks almost touching the stars, where many believed, the gods lived.
But this story attracted his peers because of giving them the delusion of believing themselves as different and superior beings.
And so they began to fight with the other animals over the land and declaring their possessions and exploiting it with massive devastation.
Transforming the once full of life and beauty, into inhospitable and smelly garbage dumps. As one of their new creations.
They grew in number, overpopulating the earth- like their biological cousins the rodents- subjugating the other species, dispossessing them of any right to coexist in freedom and enslaving them for their absolute benefit.
They invented symbols and writing and through this both in stone and fiber of papyrus and paper they printed for supposedly immortality all these self-proclaimed beliefs.
Turning them into their exclusive and progressively, violent myths.
To the point that they fine-tuned it and then directed it against its own kind, inventing races among them.
Generating horrible, brutal rapes and murders with a massive imposition on a large number of their fellow men.
Now devalued as inferior and worthy of control and possession.
As if they were consumer goods on a par with pets but with the exception of not eating them.
They truly believed themselves omni-potent above all others, inside and outside their species.
But one day, a holocaust came from outer space in the form of a comet, spilling a deadly virus.
With this hominids began to die en masse and curiously, those considered inferior could adjust much better and survive the extraterrestrial disease.
Those who had been in control were massively devastated
and only a few million survived.
These were left with a mutation that affected their brain function with massive inhibition of their thalamus and amygdala, making them much more rational.
Capable of discounting and dismantling the dogmas of the past and turning them into beautiful documents of brotherhood and humility with nature as their mother and father.
From there they embraced their congeners now the majority, in peace and brotherhood, as in their primitive origins and developed the wonderful rehabilitation of the entire planet.
Where all species were respected as equals, thus generating a perfect balance with incessant flourishing of resources and fruits everywhere.
They achieved such a degree of development that they relearned to communicate with animals and plants much earlier.
And they discovered the origin of the world kept secret until this moment of absolute humility and earthly brotherhood.
Perhaps one day not too far away they will contact their brothers from other worlds, expanding the innocence that they had lost but recovered with that stellar comet.
Some of their scholars suspect that perhaps it was a gift from them, but we won’t know that until we contact them.
Until that day, they dedicate themselves to enjoying life on this beautiful planet, now everyone’s.
They have learned that in the end, the fable created by a group of hominids turned out to be a fabled dogma that crashed and pulverized against the plain and simple reality, the one that we are all included equally in the Universe.
By creating differences between species to proclaim themselves superior and from there to possess and control others.
It is a perverse human delusion that can cost them their extinction, if they fall into it again.
Therefore, identifying as part of one with the whole, and thus exercising Universalism, is the best medicine against human delusions.
Now and hopefully always, we all proclaim,
We are One with All.
