I've always thought of how we process informations using our five senses. It had occurred to me that if you looked at the pattern from the smallest insect all the way to us that in some form those before us are also limited by their senses. An example would be fish in the ocean which has no way to describe why they are able to move in a three dimensional plane and has no way to describe the medium they reside in (duh, they don't have the capability or the comprehension). But, how do we know we are not restricted by the same concept. We always believe that we are a intelligent specie. Yet, we only have to look at the scaling life form in our planet to grasp that there is a pattern that start with the lowlest life form to us humans that brings a resounding message which sees life form with different perspective and complexity as it climbs the evolutionary ladder. We cannot expect ants to see colors nor texture of their surrounding. Our intelligent is proportional to the senses we have. But, what makes us think that we are the end of this ladder and have been granted a whole Universe for ourselves. How do we not question if our senses really captures the medium we reside in?
Another thing that came to me is when I read a quote that goes along the line of... "A proof cannot be obtain within the system." This got me thinking (thinking...seriously) of the most obvious system: The human body. More specifically, the white blood cells (red if you don't like white blood cells) which kill invaders from making us sick. The white blood cell destroys invader. However, lets imagined that they are able to ask themselves..."why the hell are we doing this?" An answer would not appear as they would have to zoomed outside the human body to see the system they work for. Their senses are limited to their intended purposes. Yet, we also cannot leave out the possibility that we might be a collective virus threatening the very system we reside in. Damn, wheres my red pill :steam:? Thoughts?
