“We did not evolve up from matter; instead we devolved, or came down, from the realm of pure consciousness, spirit.” — Michael Cremo.”
Longtime Vedic scholar says humankind did not evolve from apes, rather, we devolved from a higher plane of consciousness into matter, as described in the Vedas, and how Alfred R. Wallace, whose theory of evolution by natural selection was published with Darwin’s, got co-credit until he later suggested that evolution was directed by cosmic intelligence. Where did we come from? Drawing upon a wealth of research into archeology, genetics, reincarnation memories, out-of-body experiences, parapsychology, cross cultural cosmology, and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, Cremo provides a refreshing perspective.
Obligate symbiosisis when two organisms are in a symbiotic relationship because they can’t survive without each other. Facultative symbiosis is when the species live together by choice. Human beings do not have ANY naturally occuring sybiotic relationship with ANY other life forms on Earth. This fact is proof that human beings did not “evolve” on Earth. Humans are an “alien” species. For more details, study the definitions of symbiosis here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbiosis
The video below demonstrates a NATURALLY OCCURRING symbiotic relationship between native species of life forms on Earth: ants and acacia trees. There are billions of such relationships between life forms that actually “evolved” on Earth, but none exist with humans. In fact, humans do not provide a mutually beneficial service to ANY creatures on Earth, with the possible exception of intestinal bacteria common to all omnivorous mammals.
If the human species disappeared from Earth today no other life form would be harmed: they would flourish!
The earliest records of vegetarianism come from ancient India and ancient Greece in the 6th century BCE. In the Asian instance the diet was closely connected with the idea of nonviolence towards animals (called ahimsa in India) and was promoted by religious groups and philosophers. Among the Hellenes, Egyptians and others, it had medical or Ritual purification purposes.
Vegetarians tend to have lower body mass index, lower levels of cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and less incidence of heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, renal disease, metabolic syndrome, dementias such as Alzheimer’s disease and other disorders. Non-lean red meat, in particular, has been found to be directly associated with increased risk of cancers of the esophagus, liver, colon, and the lungs. Other studies have shown no significant differences between vegetarians and non-vegetarians in mortality from cerebrovascular disease, stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, or prostate cancer.
