Understanding the behavior of living creatures, both in one's body (viruses, microbes, and cells) and in one's environment (insects, animals and people) allows one to achieve a much greater sense of integral harmony as a living creature oneself.
creatures, from the simplest which is a virus, to the most
sophisticated, which is a human being, have the same five primal
motivations. These five motivations develop from The Singular Divine
Motivation, which is To Be. Or as God tells Moses,
"I Will Be What I Will Be."
The motivation To Be, the assignment of value To Being, logically
necessitates The Creation of The Self. The Creation of The Self is the
First Dictate of the Divine Will To Be. So the first primal motivation
is To Be By Creating One's Self.
This is manifested in the most primitive creatures by some means of self
reproduction, the reproduction being an imperfect duplication of The
Self. The imperfection of the duplication, in primitive organisms as well as sophisticated creatures such as human beings, is caused by genetic mutation of various degrees and severity. The overall
purpose of mutation is to create Diversity, Diversity serving to
enhance the survival potential of The Greater Self, which is first The
Genus, then The Species, thus striving to guarantee for growing numbers
of individual organisms, the ever continuing manifestation
of The Singular Divine Motivation, The Eternal Will To Be.
The Eternal Will To Be becoming the Divine Imperative,
"I Will Be What I Will Be".
The maintenance of the singular yet dynamic identity of The Self results
in Preservation. The Self is singular because from microbes to human
beings, no two organisms are exactly the same. The identity of the Self is dynamic, because The Self itself, changes as it matures and finally decays. The Preservation of The Self is the Second Dictate of the Divine Will
To Be. The Maintenance of The Singular Self is a finite process that
ends in dissolution, this dissolution serving to supply nutrients and
assets to other and newer organisms, which need them for The Creation
and Preservation of Self.
The Accomplishment of Preservation of Living Entities, from the
species to the individual organism, is first attained by the sustainable
acquirement of the nutrients and assets, necessary for The Creation of
The Self. And then by the removal of toxic waste products on a regular
basis, as well
as the continual removal of contaminants from the environment, that
threaten to infiltrate the organisms of the species and cause infection.
disease and decay. If these actions of maintenance are diminished or
ceased, the very existence of The Self is put in question.
The Creation and Preservation of Variations of Diversity on The Theme
of Self, necessarily lead to The Third Primal Dynamic Motivation,
which is the Motivation To Multiply or Expand. As God says in Genesis to
all living things, by saying it to man,
"Be Fruitful and Multiply."
For man is a composite of the same constructive mechanisms contained in all living organisms, the chemical and then organic mechanizations of DNA. The Wills To Be, to Maintain and Preserve, to Multiply and Expand are Divine Dictates embedded in the DNA of all
living creatures, anywhere DNA is the primal building block of Life,
which is probably, Everywhere Life of Any Kind Exists. This because DNA
itself is the consequence of the Universal Laws of Physics and Chemistry
which govern the nature of the basic elements as these relate to each
other and become ever more complex compounds and finally organic compounds, DNA, amino acids, and proteins.
While mutations in DNA might appear superficially
to result randomly as a consequence of environmental influences such as
radiation from different sources, toxins, viral infections,
fluctuations in environmental acidity and the availability and nature of
sources of nutrition, the overall consequence of such mutations seems to conveniently serve the overall
outcome of the ever greater ability of Life to Create, Maintain and
Preserve, Multiply and Expand, an ever more sophisticated and complex
array of Living Creations, a True Dynamic Harmony of Diversity that
ever more profoundly manifests the Original Axiomatic Divine Intent
expressed in God's saying to Moses,
" I Will Be What I Will Be!",
That Being All
The Living Creatures whose natures are determined in their propensities
by the structures and sequences of their genes, as created by the four
building blocks, Adenine (A), Cytosine (C), Guanine (G), and Thymine
(T), in their DNA.
King David speaks of this when he writes in Psalm 145:
15. The eyes of all living creatures look to you,
and you give them their food in due season.
16 You do open your hand;
you satisfy the divine intent of every living thing.
The logical and natural consequence of multiplication and expansion
of a species is that individuals in that species and the species itself,
encounter impediments and barriers to that expansion. Impediments to
expansion can exist within the individuals of a species wherein their
internal mechanisms, limited as they are by the propensities of their
DNA, limit their ability to overcome obstacles due to the lack of any
means to change the nature of said obstacles and remove them so that
expansion can continue. When a species can no longer expand due to
internal limitations and there is an absence of beneficial genetic
mutation designed to reform the species capabilities to overcome the
limitations of its nature, deterioration and decay will
encroach on the quantity and quality of life of individuals in that
species, causing contractions in both quantity and quality. The very act
of living produces waste products that are toxic, and without an
increase in controlled territory that allows for the disposal of toxic waste products, the species will eventually possibly poison itself into extinction. Toxins will infiltrate the living space of individuals, causing disease and death to an ever increasing number of individuals and finally The Greater Living Entity itself.
Another kind of impediment to expansion is when territorial gains of a
specific species, race, tribe or extended family encounter an exterior
barrier that prevents the increase of controllable space available to that entity.
This circumstance manifests The Fourth Primal Dynamic Motivation
which is The Divine Intent to attack barriers to expansion by
annihilating them, causing them to flee, or changing their nature so as
to create some kind of a symbiotic relationship, the last resulting in
some degree of mutual influence and cultural transformation of both
parties. Which solution is adopted depends on the calculation of self
interest inherent in that solution. The first and second solution, are
those always manifested by those species more primitive than homo
sapiens, with home sapiens demonstrating what might be considered a
biological quantum leap of consciousness wherein Humans are capable of
Mastering not only The Elements of Nature, but all the Kingdoms of Life, as Divine Custodians.
It is in this regard that Moses writes,
"And God blessed them, and God said
unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and
subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl
of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."
To replenish the earth is to preserve its many different species by allowing
and enhancing their self creation and preservation and governing their
expansions so as to maintain a dynamic balance and harmony between the
diversities that dwell on the face of the Earth. To subdue "it", is not to annihilate, but rather to cultivate.
This for the mutual benefit of Different Kinds of Humans, as Divine Design Manifests as The Evolution and History of Life.
As a logical and natural consequence of the multiplication and expansion of one species, another will
find itself attacked and its living space encroached upon. This
circumstance brings about the manifestation of The Fifth Divine Primal
Dynamic Motivation which is The Divine Imperative To Defend One's Self
from annihilation or the need to flee, particularly when there is no
space or territory to which one can escape. Defense always entails a
change in the nature of existence for that which needs to defend itself
(not always for the worse), otherwise it is not Defense, but rather the
innate necessities of Maintenance and Preservation.
The first strategy of Defense is to reallocate
assets and resources so as to acquire the means of changing the nature
of the attacker into something benign and manageable, and if this is not
possible, to annihilate it in its present identity. The need for the
of assets and resources upon the perception of danger, is itself the
manifestation of The Divine Imperative To Defend One's Self against
encroaching external influences, that threaten the very Nature of The
Identity of The Self, and therefore The Self's Existence.
When unable to flee and unable to gain domination over the perceived
and adjudicated enemy, the only strategy of self defense is to reallocate
assets and resources so as to acquire or create the weapons of not
only self defense, but those necessary to attack the aggressor in its
own territory and living space, until a permanent change in its
aggressive nature is achieved by destroying the aggressor's assets and
it's means of utilizing resources so that there is a revolution in its
aggressive identity and it acquires and assumes a new self definition
wherein it adopts a policy of cooperation and mutual symbiotic growth
with its territorial and ideological neighbors.
This is what the Allies did under American leadership to West Germany and Japan and what The Soviets did to East Germany.
The inability of a species or subspecies, Race, Nation, Country,
Tribe, Extended Family, or Business Corporation, and to some extant any
Living Individual Entity, to Manifest these Five Divine Primal
Instincts will inevitably result its extinction, demise or death.
On the other hand, the ability to Manifest these Five Divine Primal
Dynamic Motivations ensures the continued survival, growth, development
and inevitable eventual evolution of any Living Entity that so succeeds,
towards ever more complex and sophisticated manifestations of The
"I Will Be What I Will Be."
When these Five Divine Primal Instincts are distilled down to the Basic Abstractions of Divine Will that they are, these are:
Create, Preserve, Expand, Attack, and Defend.
Or perhaps Poetically Put,
SEX AND WAR.
The first three Imperatives are The Consequences of THE SEX INSTINCT which among mammals produce some kind of an extended family.
The last two Imperatives manifest as The Activity of WAR, needed to
guarantee the survival, growth, development and inevitable eventual
evolution of all living entities, from the Genus and Species to the Individual Living Entity of Identity.
Fortunately, as mankind develops, it will
evolve an ability to wage war without the necessity for physical
destruction and annihilation of those who impede expansion, in the case
of the Fourth Imperative, or Those whose perceived attack on one' own
Integrity of Identity, is of an Ideological or Cultural Nature.
As the means of communication grow ever more complex and
sophisticated, and the quality and effectiveness of human communication
develops, VIOLENT WARS will become a thing of The Past AND CEASE.
As the Hebrew Prophet Isaiah said " And
he shall judge between the nations and reprove many peoples, and they
shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning
hooks; nation shall not lift the sword against nation, neither shall
they learn war anymore."
So Help Me God.
