I yield quite unpopular opinions, and those with unpopular opinions tend to get brutally shunned by the rest of society. Also, those who behave drastically different from the general norms and practices of a forum or other human social group are often brutally shunned.
Well, I hope that doesn't happen here. I hope to be welcomed by the fellow human beings at this forum, as I'm giving humanity one last try before just giving up, and moving on to a full life with those who do not despise me.
I have been reading my ass up on feral children, yes, sort of like the fictional Mowgli in The Jungle Book, and it amazes me that this kind of thing happens to real, actual people. But the stories about them living with the animals aren't sad so much as they actually make me quite happy. It seems the animals who took care of the human children loved the human more than other humans loved that same human. It makes me really start to question this society's complexity and whether it's really as good as we think it is; were we happier in a more primitive state? It seems to me that the more complex our society gets the worse it gets, global warming, huge animal populations getting killed off by us, millions of fellow humans getting oppressed, social grouping, etc. The animals might be less healthy, yes, but they have the blessing of not knowing any of the things we know, thus leading to a life without real complex cruelty.
My first unpopular opinion is that the future being any different from any present in the human sense might just make things worse than they already are. Does "superhuman" really mean "superdiscriminatory" which is equivalent to "supercruel"?
Personally, I would love humans if they loved me, but they don't. I LOVE learning about history and human creations (art), but truth be told, most of the people I read about would not enjoy my presence or my existence. Most other animals seem to take very kindly to me, however. I know the noises that get their attention, for example, and they give me what I want, which is love and affection. I have a job that allows me to work with animal species on a regular basis.
I'm writing an entire book on humans raised by animals or being with animals and mimicking their behavior, using citations from external sources to support the stories and my theories. I just think many of the feral children should have been left with their animal families. Oftentimes as I read I find many cases of children who are chronically depressed and miserable because they were taken away from the animals they've lived with for all their remembered lives. I think that a raised wolf is a wolf, whether or not they were born wolf. Mentally, they are a wolf, because they've become a wolf. In the wolf pack, they can live in peace, love, and affection, while in the human society, they live in the constant misery of being differential to everyone else and having to be constantly neglected, abandoned, discriminated against, and never truly loved. Love is simple: it just happens. People rarely allow it to "just happen", so it doesn't. Why do you think human husbands and wives have disagreements so much, for example? Answer: Complexity. Since the animals live simple lives, they do not discriminate in such complex ways and thus can find simple happiness with each other. I've learned that, as a human, the more complex you become the more likely it is that you'll be so different from everyone else that you can hardly relate to anyone anymore. And creating superhumans? That just means even more complexity which means even more division and even less love.
Of course you're throwing rotten tomatoes at me. Why? Because I'm just another human who you don't like because I threw out some unpopular opinions at you, end of story. Bottom line: I'd rather live with a pack of wild cats than here. The cats can appreciate me just for being nice to them. I most closely identify with felines, dogs, wolves, snakes, raccoons, and capuchin monkeys (interesting fact, one of my best friends is a white-faced capuchin monkey).
But I don't know, maybe one or two of you would accept me like the animals can. You never know?
