Despite being from the SQ+ve community, which trusts more on intuition than reasoning, encrypted, metaphorically loaded symbols than language, meditation than plain introspection and changing the self rather forcing the change outside for solving a problem I admit that man has definitely gone through a phenomenal transformation over last 5,000 years and especially in last few hundred years. Needless to say, this has happened because of his capacity to use this magical tool called mind. The mind can be a great tool but this much revered, sought after tool in this “Sapien” is also the root cause of anxiety, division, competition, jealously, anger, hatred, selfishness, wars, focus on profits… and, the new millennia disease, stress!
I have no objection in agreeing to that fact that what makes an animal a man is mind but I would like you to ponder upon, what elevates and transforms a man to human. What makes a noble man out of a man? It is something else. It is definitely not the mind. This something has kept the human race going or else it would have gone by now. The Homo Sapien survived through the countless millennia because it was sapien enough, wise enough and being wise is not just being intelligent … it is much more than that.
