AMAZING ARTICLES #9: WHO ARE WE?
"sooner or later, any valid theorem is going to be invalidated."
"Argumentum ad ignorantiam" means in Latin, "arguing based on
For a few good millennia, Latin was considered the language of science; therefore, the question is: "Why is Latin,
a language dead for about 2000 years, that important?"
Any researcher who has studied Latin has learned the "classic method of investigation"--which is,
"ad fontes" [meaning "historically, from the very roots"]. That is a most thorough type of analysis, because it may identify
many roots/causes hidden into our forgotten past.
Take Latin, for example. We consider it the "reference Culture"
of our Human Civilization--the most advanced that
ever existed--yet the Latin philosophers themselves were researching their past intensively, and they did discover
there incredible . . . past "things" and forgotten concepts. True, they had the great
Alexandria Pharos Library as
source of information, which is gone today, unfortunately, and that is only our fault
. . .

Amazingly, this is article A9 and we are still working on the introductory part of these
Articles. In fact, we suspect we need a few more Amazing Articles before diving into
"the essence of things". It is
possible some readers would feel rather annoyed with the fact that we interrupt
now the chain of pure, scientific articles
to present some philosophical topics. The answer to them is, we had to do it because:
1. we intend to present a clear, Global Picture of our Civilization;
2. if any reader does not agree with, say, 50 percent of the ideas presented in this article, then there is no
need to further bother with the Atomic Universe, the Subatomic, or with the Certitude Factors.
Now, who are we? We are a group of intelligent beings living on a Planet without an official name, in a
System also without any official name. The source of life for us is our Sun: a medium-size star which, again, has
no official name. Our Planet travels around the Sun at a great speed, and our
Sun circles the core of the
Milky-Way Galaxy at even greater speeds. The Milky-Way Galaxy itself is drifting
into space, again, at another
great speed. To an outside observer, our tiny Planet appears to be just a wonderful spaceship traveling through
We, the intelligent beings, have to be aware that the cosmic space is not an empty and serene place.
At any moment our
existence on this Planet could end instantly, and there are very, very many possible causes for that. On the other
hand, we could be lucky, and there may be a few more million years of peaceful development ahead for us.
Now, our society, our Civilization, is not a homogenous one; there are two main categories of people on
1. good people
2. bad people
The color, the shape, the place of birth on our Planet, the number of years spent in official schools and
everything else are totally not important. Good/bad people is the first and the most important natural division of
intelligent beings, and please be aware that things are exactly the same
throughout the Universe, on billion other Planets, in countless other
Some of us are still wondering: "Are we alone in the Universe?" The answer to that question came
by itself when we discovered that our Sun is just another ordinary star, same as
billion and billion others--we are officially
aware of this astronomical observation for about 500 years. However, despite the overwhelming reality, many people
today still believe we are alone in the Universe: that is due, mostly, to their religious education.
Religion has played an important role during the development of our Civilization, and it will continue to do so
for many more (thousand) years to come. It happens that intelligent beings
feel a very strong psychological need for TRUE
SOCIAL JUSTICE. However, people cannot find JUSTICE in society,
therefore they are driven towards religion.
Now. religious people believe that
Life and the Universe are the work of the
GREAT CREATOR. We are the last ones to deny the existence of
our CREATOR, and
we have many good reasons for that: some of them are scientific!
At Corollary Theorems we estimate that about 80 percent of all people on our
Planet believe in CREATOR. Of course,
they use all sorts of names, instead of CREATOR, but that is entirely not important. The truly important
1. the CREATOR is only ONE;
2. ALL intelligent beings on our planet are wonderful creations, and they are
3. ALL intelligent beings in the Universe are wonderful creations, and
they are ALL CREATOR'S children;
4. ALL intelligent beings in the Universe are brothers and sisters, as they have the same father:
5. our Universe is the great, wonderful CREATION of our CREATOR, and we should strive to study it as much as we can.
The remaining 20 percent are people who believe the Creation Process is the work of
We are certain the CREATOR has absolutely nothing against the idea: the naming used is, again, entirely not
important. Anybody could replace the name "CREATOR" with "MOTHER NATURE" and vice versa--it is only the
idea of a CREATION PROCESS that matters.
Believing in CREATOR--or in MOTHER NATURE--is something very nice, and even necessary, but the bad part is, people
use religion to express their devotion. Many years ago, a great Muslim philosopher said: "I searched for God for
years in all mosques in Asia, though I discovered HIM only in my soul." Very nice, and incredibly truthful words!
The CREATOR lives only in our souls; the CREATOR is only in your soul,
and in the soul of the anonymous people
next to you.
It is very interesting that many religious persons promote the idea that we are alone
in the Universe. They say, we shouldn't bother studying science, or the
Universe, simply because we have the CREATOR to trust/believe in, and
that should be sufficient. Well, that is the way some people are, and
nobody will be able to change their convictions--not even the GREAT
CREATOR himself: IGNORANCE IS THE ONLY THING THAT LASTS FOR
Other religious people do want to find out more about our CREATOR, therefore we will try explaining
a few things for them. First,
after creating our Planet, our Planetary System, our Galaxy, the Universe, and then finally us, the CREATOR did
not die, or even became tired of his work. The CREATOR continued, and he continues the work
he started, therefore
very many intelligent beings live happily and they build billions of other
Civilizations in the Universe, close to us, right now!
The second interesting aspect is, the CREATOR has bothered to create ANIMALS and
INTELLIGENT BEINGS. However,
please note this: intelligent beings are built inside an animal body/organism. Why did the
GREAT CREATOR trouble to
create intelligent beings in addition to animals? The answer is very simple; it is: "Because the
wanted to create intelligent beings in addition to animals." Now, we are those intelligent beings, and we
should use our intelligence to discover and understand THE ACT OF CREATION. That is the reason the
GREAT CREATOR gave us
intelligence: we have to use it! Should he not want us to use our intelligence, he could have left us in the
For those readers who do not believe in CREATOR, think that MOTHER NATURE struggled for billions
of years to
create intelligent beings, therefore we need to honor that terrific CREATION PROCESS, also by THINKING. As you can see, in
either case the message is only one: we must think intelligently, and as much as we can. If we do not do that,
then we are nothing better than animals, and it is a waste of CREATOR'S work, or of billion years of natural
Fine! Now we know that we must use our intelligence in order to prove that we are not just animals to the GREAT CREATOR, or
to our dear MOTHER NATURE. The only problem appears to be the fact that we do not know how to use our intelligence! Well, let's take a
first look at
what the animals do:
1. animals eat
2. animals procreate
3. animals fight each other
Of course, we are built just as the animals are, therefore we are able to do everything
the animals do--even way
better! Still, we know we are required [by the CREATOR or by MOTHER NATURE] to use our intelligence. Most of you think,
probably, that is exactly what we do. Well, not quite, if you look at
the Global Picture. There are only two things,
in addition to the actions the animals do, that may seem that we, the intelligent beings, are doing our
without those two things, all our actions end up exactly like animals'. The two things we are referring to are:
work, and we use money.
So, we work in order to get money; next, we use the money to:
1. eat--or to "consume" all sorts of things;
2. procreate--in fact we have an entire "culture" about that "art";
3. fight each other--this one is (socially) more complex, since many
name it "success", "achievement", "accomplishment",
plus many other deceiving terms.
To us (at COROLLARY THEOREMS), it is clear there is not much difference from what the animals do, and we have the feeling
that we do not perform
our job/duty sufficiently efficient to the GREAT CREATOR, or to MOTHER NATURE.
You see, we have been gifted with intelligence, therefore
it is our job/duty to use it at maximum possible. Sure but . . . how?
Things are a bit more complex with this
"need to use our
intelligence" thing but, unfortunately, at this moment in time we cannot
reveal more. It is not just that we should strive to discover the ACT OF
CREATION; most likely, we will never be able to learn the entire story.
However, while struggling to discover reality, and our true nature, we
be rewarded with A NEW STATE OF MENTAL DEVELOPMENT . . . AND EVEN MUCH,
You see, if you learn a lot, very, very much, you may achieve . . . things beyond
your wildest imagination. The door to knowledge is open for everybody,
and we all have exactly the same chance to open it; beyond that common
aspect however, only very
few--if any--of us may discover the GRAIL OF GRAILS. [Though rest
assured that IT IS
THERE! Some of us did get to it in the past.]
Regarding their level of intelligence, people are:
1. specialists, or technicians
Of course, the second instance above is the highest level of intelligence we could achieve, and we are certain
knows this. What is less known is, being an intellectual has little or
nothing to do with the number of years spent in
official schools. We have met very many low condition people having incredibly
advanced intellectual profiles. It
hurt us to see those wonderful yet humble representatives of the Human Species were not even aware of their true
level of intelligence . . .
Let's perform a little experiment: try to discover if you are an intellectual. Things are very simple: all you
need to do is, think of the next highlighted phrase. If you agree with it, totally,
then you are an intellectual;
otherwise, you are a specialist, or a technician. [This test is valid for any intelligent being, regardless of the
number of years spent in schools.]
It is our duty to protect and
to develop our Planet, and the Homo Sapiens
species, at any costs.
If you feel the need to change the word "Planet"
with anything else (say, "my country"), you are
not an intellectual, dear friend. Same, if you honestly feel that instead of "Homo
Sapiens species" it would be
more appropriate to you anything else (for example, "our kind", "my people", "the
believers", "my brothers", or simply "me") then, again, you are not an intellectual.
Now, if you are a specialist, that is not quite a tragedy, because that is, in fact, natural order of things: very
few people are (true) intellectuals. However, if you are an intellectual, then these articles up to here, and further on,
are going to help you very, very much: you may understand!
We have mentioned that to an external observer our Planet is just a tiny spaceship traveling through space. That is the true
objective state of things which defines us all. On our spaceship-Planet people live in various compartments: some live
in the interesting navigation compartment, others in the powerful engines area, while others live in the
dirty cargo bays. We use this
literary-graphic division only to achieve a realistic comparison. Now, some compartments
on our spaceship are easier to
live in, or more pleasing than others; other bunkers are really dirty,
while in some it is quite dangerous to live in. Please do not take the
word "dirt" literally. Dirt means many things; for example corruption,
imposture, greed, lies . . .
The point to note is, our spaceship is just one unit, or one Planet, and dirt in one place is dirt for everybody!
That dirt, or dangerous living conditions, could easily spread throughout our little,
wonderful spaceship. In
addition, to an outside observer--this could be even the GREAT CREATOR--the dirt in
a few places
on our dear spaceship
defines us all, regardless of the actual place we live in.
