TOO MANY HUMANS?

Personally, I don’t think there are too many human beings on this planet> I think there are not supposed to be ANY Homo Sapiens on Earth.  In spite of religious and scientific propaganda that says human “evolved” on Earth there is NO PROOF that this is true.  In fact ALL the actual evidence demonstrates that the species Homo Sapiens suddenly appeared on Earth without ANY biological forbearers.    The exact date is unknown.  Modern Homo Sapiens certainly did not exist on Earth as recently as a mere millions years ago.  A million years in the biological and geological history of Earth is staggeringly SHORT period of time: the blink of an eye.

Sharks, for example, who have an average life-span of about 60 years, like humans, have existed in the archeological record for at 400 million years or longer. They existed BEFORE dinosaurs! There is no disagreement that scales found during the Silurian Period, aged 420 million years, are from sharks.  Shark scales from this period have been found in Siberia and Mongolia.

So, why are there Homo Sapiens on Earth?  Where did they come from?  One thing is certain:  humans on Earth are NOT and accident of evolution or conception.  Someone, somewhere, sometime, CAUSED it.

HAPPINESS

Hemingway-HappinessThe Pulitzer Prize winning American writer Ernest Hemingway (1899 – 1961) said “Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know”.  
At the end of his life Hemingway was being chased by the FBI and IRS because he lived in Cuba and was a friend of Fidel Castro, a communist, who opposed the Rothschild international bankers ambition control of the world.  Understandably, Hemingway, also a long time alcoholic, became depressed and suicidal.  His wife sent him to a mental hospital where they gave him dozens of electric shock treatments and heavy drugs to “cure” his depression.  Two days after being released from the hospital his shot himself in the head with his double-barreled shotgun! Hemingway was super-intelligent, but unhappy.
Hemingway is an example that Intelligence, alone, is not the “key to happiness”.  I remembered what Krishnamurti said:
Jiddu Krishnamurti“…you have the idea that only certain people hold the key to the Kingdom of Happiness. No one holds it. No one has the authority to hold that key. That key is your own self, and in the development and the purification and in the incorruptibility of that self alone is the Kingdom of Eternity….
You have been accustomed to being told how far you have advanced, what is your spiritual status. How childish! Who but yourself can tell you if you are incorruptible?  I am not concerned, nor with creating new cages, nor new decorations for those cages. My only concern is to set men absolutely, unconditionally free.”
 
It is interesting that Krishnamurti uses the words “development, purification and incorruptibility” to describe the “key” to happiness.  Perhaps this  describes the path we have can follow to discover the truth and happiness.  
Perhaps it is not as important to be “happy” as it is to see the truth and not become corrupted or depressed by it.  Maybe our “development” and “incorruptibility” demand and require that we become “depressed” sometimes as part of our “development”.  And, as part of our progress toward Freedom, which is an essential part of Happiness.
