Humans are most closely related to the great apes of the family Hominidae.
This family includes orangutans, chimpanzees, gorillas, and bonobos.
Humans and gorillas share 98.4 percent of their DNA.
Of the great apes, humans share 98.8 percent of their DNA with bonobos and chimpanzees.
Read the above lines again – let it sink in. * see notes
Now – try explaining to a chimpanzee that a building was built by humans.
You will say, use sign language… I know.
The important part is – is the Chimpanzee interested? Can s/he focus? ** see notes
Next, imagine a human being, in place of the Chimpanzee.
Let’s assume AI in fact is the next evolutionary “being” on planet Earth – with limitless processing power, access to all of the planets information and a massive memory.
And imagine the next evolutionary organism (AI?) trying to explain to the human –
How the Universe was created and what lies beyond
What does the 4th, 5th, 6th dimension contain
There is no soul and Gods are 5th dimensional beings
Will a human 3 dimensional mind with limited range of vision, limited memory, limited focus and limited processing power be able to understand?
This – is what is coming. Whether you like it, or not, no one cares.
Did humans ever ask the Chimpanzees about their likes before destroying forests?
The fortunate part – you, the reader, will be long dead before this happens.
The audacity of human beings is in assuming that we are the supreme planetary species.
None of us pause to reflect for even a minute that we are just a blimp on the timelines of this universe.
