Animal-Human

As described at Animal-Human-Angel, humans have animal roots and angelic wings.
The thing is that humans have not only forgotten their core angelic self (see here) but also have disconnected from their animal self, their Animal-Human.

Humans see themselves as separate from animals and Nature.
We look down on animals (see here) and ignorantly exploit nature.
God is dead, Nature is our slave and Technological Man or Transhuman is the future.
We are supremacists believing ourselves to be the Master of all.
We invent new ways to improve on nature and yet so often they are disastrous.

Our intellectual hubris or greed or ignorance has caused so much damage: manmade climate change, disastrous modern birth practices, glut of processed food, drug culture, pandemics and the deification of technology.
Meanwhile our emotional and spiritual maturity is neglected.
Like Icarus, we fly to the sun on flawed ideas and risk the extinction of all.
Perhaps we need to accept and reintegrate our Animal-Human as we ascend to the Sun? We need to remember that as long as we are on Earth, humans are partly animal?
At the peril of all things, we disown the part of us that is animal or nature...

So, humans have decided to go it alone without God or Nature.
So, we make the natural powerful forces dysfunctional.
We disown them (natural medicine; intuition; God).
We neglect them (natural birth feared; ignore messages from emotions; move so little).
We forget them (our Mother Earth that we are busy destroying; who kills their Mother?).
We corrupt or pervert them (competition seen as superior to cooperation; sit rather than squat on the toilet!; educate so unnaturally).
We are overwhelmed by them (sugar, drugs, porn, tech).

One way back from this precipice of extinction is to remember and reintegrate Animal-Human.

Animal-Human is a human being that tends to use their instincts and skills in ways that Nature intended. We birth instinctively. We breastfeed. We attachment parent. We educate naturally. Our health is known to be deeply connected to the health of Earth, and we embrace a natural health system. We form little tribes where things are easily shared. We live simply. We move. We sing and dance, tell stories around the fire. We are still within the mystery of Nature, the Stars and the Sun. We care for all things.

Instead, humans have developed such great material and technological power, capable of destroying humanity and possibly even the Earth.

When will we learn that the Way of Nature is usually better than the Way of Humans?
When will we work on or harmonise with our animal (and spiritual) selves?

At the moment we see ourselves as separate from Nature.
But what if we are partly animals and thus part of Nature?
That we are one system?

What it means is that - whilst we continue to exploit animals and Nature - we are practising self-hate and self-harm. It means that we have enslaved our very own selves!

Our potential, on the other hand, is that we will respect ourselves, be kind to ourselves and care for ourselves - by caring for Nature and animals.
This is our power, to transform from brutal exploiters to caring custodians.
This is the Way of Nature, of remembering and reintegrating Animal-Human.

Related Quotes

We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves.
(Andy Goldsworthy)

Everything we do should be predicated on keeping nature intact. Otherwise, if you’re destroying nature to make money or to provide even things that are important, in the end you’re going to have a bigger bill to pay than if you kept nature healthy and functioning and robust. (Jim Robbins, 23m18s, posted 2 April 2020, accessed 14 April 2020)

...we are one with life. Contemporary thinking will not work well with this concept. We have grown used to the idea that man and nature are separate entities. We see life in terms of stratification, hierarchies and evolutionary levels. Needless to say man is on the top in each case. Like adolescents we imagine we have outgrown our parents and that we are now quite able to manage this life estate. (Julian Barnard, Patterns of Life Force, p.27)

Man's attitude toward nature is today critically important simply because we have now acquired a fateful power to alter and to destroy nature. But man is a part of nature, and his war against nature is inevitably a war against himself.
(Rachel Carson, 1963 CBS documentary; see here
)

Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Man does not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web he does to himself.
(Chief Seattle)
