Who Am I – A Baby Boomer's Search
One of the characteristics of Baby Boomers is the incessant search for who am I. Where do I come from? Am I evolved from the lower primates or Am I a creation of a supreme being? For the last 300 years, perhaps longer, science and theology have been at odds over this question. Was my great granddaddy a Neanderthal, Is Lucy my long lost sister? Let’s take a brief look at the latest understanding from Science as we peer deeper than ever into the universe and ask “who am I”
When we ask “Who am I”? The short answer is what Gregg Braden states, “we’re not what we’ve been told and we’re more than most of us have ever imagined!”
Carl Sagan once said “We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.”
This kind of limited thinking, promoted by the scientific community over the last 300 years, has led us to believe that we’re unimportant when it comes to life in general, the question of “who am I” and also separate from the world, from one another, and ultimately, even from ourselves.
“The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein”.
I am at a loss to understand biologists’ widespread compulsion to deny what seems to me to be obvious.” — Sir Fred Hoyle (1915–2001), Cambridge University, British astronomer; formed the theory of stellar nucleosynthesis.
Where did we come from, Who Am I
We (modern man) appeared on earth approximately 200,000 years ago with the DNA and the advanced brain and complex nervous system that set us apart from other forms of life already formed and functioning. Note the use of the word “appeared” is intentional. There is now ample evidence to suggest we did not evolve from lower primate but coexisted with them on this planet.
We appear to be a species unique unto ourselves, with our own simple family tree, rather than being a variation of pre-existing forms of life traditionally shown on an increasingly-crowded family tree.
The DNA that makes us unique is the result of a rare arrangement of chromosomes, which are fused and optimized in a way that cannot be identified as random.
We’re here with the bodies and the nervous systems that afford us the abilities of compassion, empathy, intuition, self-healing, and much more. The fact of their presence within us suggests that we’re intended to utilize—and master—the sensitivities that we arrived with.
The Neanderthal Infant
In 1987, a paradigm-shattering discovery was made in the Caucasus region of Russia, near the border between Europe and Asia.
Buried deep in the earth, in a place called Mezmaiskaya Cave, scientists discovered the remains of a Neanderthal infant—a baby girl that lived about 30,000 years ago! For reference, the last ice age ended about 20,000 years ago, meaning that this baby was alive during the ice age.
Her remains were in an extremely rare state of preservation, and scientists were able to determine her age as somewhere between that of an unborn seven-month fetus and a two-month-old infant.
In the year 2000 researchers at the University of Glasgow Human Identification Centre published the results of their investigation comparing Neanderthal DNA to that of modern humans. The results of their study were shared in a way that made sense even to the most nonscientific reader. And the meaning of what they found could not be dismissed.
The conclusion of their report was shared in the peer-reviewed journal Nature and directly stated that modern humans “were not, in fact, descended from Neanderthals.” Scientists generally agree that Anatomically Modern Humans (AMHs) first appear in the fossil record approximately 200,000 years ago and mark the beginning of the subspecies Homo sapiens—the term used to describe the people living on earth today. Scientists now believe that the AMHs are us, and we are they
It would also mean that the extraordinary abilities available to us today, such as the ability to self regulate vital functions that include our immune system and heart rate variability, to trigger self-healing, our access to deep intuition on-demand, to super learning and more, appear to be part of our original “blueprint” rather than abilities that developed slowly and gradually over a long period of time.
The DNA that make us unique, the lack of fossil evidence documenting the transition from one hominid species to another, and the lack of common DNA between humans and less advanced primates all suggest that we may not belong on the same tree with the early hominids commonly shown in the textbooks. In fact, they suggest that we may not belong to a tree at all!
Late in life, Crick risked his reputation as a scientist by publicly stating, “An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle.”
The evidence is overwhelming. We humans were designed and put here on earth. Who or what did the designing is still the purview of theology and I will not argue it here. The conclusion is obvious to me. You reach your own conclusion.
