We human beings know a lot yet know little. Because language has evolved in our species to - I suspect - to the level of sophistication it is today, and because we learned how to record thought so it could be passed onto others, even across the generations, some of us think we're the 'ants pants' when it comes to being a God-made creature. We rule the earth! We don't rule well, unfortunately. You could even say we're a bit despotic.
We revel in our knowledge. Fair enough. We have a right to be proud. Just as long as we are not vain. We do know a lot, yet we know very little.
We don't understand and know the languages of birds, fish, insects or even other mammals. We might be able to generalize a bit, but we do not know how to communicate with the others species that share our planet.
We have discovered that our senses are limited. Our eyes, ears, sense of smell and taste and, most importantly, our sense of personal space, is limited by those senses. So our REALITY is only a part of something which is so limitless we cannot even get our minds around it. We have some ideas as to what goes on in certain limited ranges beyond our senses but not much.
One of our biggest problems is non-belief. If we can't see it, measure it, weigh it, et cetera, then it cannot be. It cannot exist. We used to say that about radio, and television and computers and... Until it is discovered or invented it cannot exist.
Of course we're not the 'best' as humans. We're still evolving. We haven't reached the end of the road in self-development and understanding. Of course there are other intelligent, sentient beings in this huge illimitable universe...maybe I should make that plural: illimitable universes. Common sense tells us there will be creatures not as advanced and more advanced. How could we possibly be the 'best' when we're still so primitive we can't even control our emotions?
But we are marvellous. We are grand. We are a part of God Herself, Himself, Its Self. As is everything and everyone and that would include those advanced creatures from planes beyond our ken. It is the God part of ourselves that enables us to ask such a question: "Are we the best?"...
