Variation in Creation; An unresolved Question
Why does existence make so much disparity, so much variation in this creation? Is it really a variation or an illusion to our eyes? From a simple structure of Amoeba, to a complex structure of Human being existence contains everything. Does existence play a game of permutation and combination or it has some purpose to do so?
Scripture tells that there is a supreme authority that is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. Even a leaf cannot shake without his approval. Now this philosophy contradicts the good or bad. I would say it totally abolish this fact that something is good or bad. How? If god is doing, deciding everything then if someone is killing, robbing or raping, it cannot be without the approval of god. We are just medium to do god’s work. So there is nothing like good or bad. If there is nothing like good or bad, then what is significance of past and next life?
Now, some philosopher argues that men have ability to choose. Yes! It sounds quite logical as we can feel the sense of choosing. If we can choose something, at the same time can decide not to choose that thing. Now, if the concept of past life is concerned, I am here due to my past life. The deeds, I have done have let me a new life in this mortal world. Now If I can choose, what is the significance of my past deeds? Assume I was destined to live happily for25 years due to my past deeds, I go and stand in front of running truck; Am I not capable to change the effect of past life? If I am capable, I am not finding any significance of past life.
So these theories are not acceptable for describing the variation in creation.
Existence creates you as an individual with unique identity, biologically unique genetic structure. It does not create carbon-copies. But when we see, we observe the things in the projection of our thoughts and start judging things, like he is beautiful, as he is fair; he is ugly as he is dark. Beautifulness becomes projection of two opposites, fair and dark. If you see a man as an individual, without judgement, without any prejudices we can catch a glimpse of the scenery that is observed by existence while creation. This same thing is applied in interspecies. We make our opinion like human species is the most intelligent, most powerful. But intelligence and power are human’s word. This is our projection of thoughts in which we feel superior but no one knows about other species. Every species has own uniqueness, so no reason to comparison. If you understand it, then you would again say that all the fingers of hand are not same but not with the sense of hierarchy of some finger over other, but with the sense of uniqueness.
Just imagine your body; millions of cells (remember! Cells have life) form our skin, blood and bones. This whole combination lets you feel that this is your body, a feeling of self. In the same way it may happen also that all the living things like human, birds, amoeba and bacteria; all the dead things like soil, rock, air which are confine into this infinite galaxy, feels a sense of one being (in a same way as we feel about our body that this is my body). To my mind, this is GOD (existence).
