Quote from Canute Why? And what does 'superior' mean? You're entitled to hope, but you're not entitled to assume. In what way can one form of life be 'superior' to another? My concept argues that all life has evolved for the purpose of producing a species (currently the human species) capable of hosting our consciousness. Our consciousness being the reproductive cell of a higher species. This is a radical concept but I am entitled to argue it and put it forward for critique. I get irritated in the extreme by those who do not recognise a property in consciousness that is not present in single cell organisms. If people do not want to place any value on humanity (or do not recognise a property in our human consciousness that is not present in bacteria) then that is their business. But let them speak for themselves and not the rest of us.
