THE FILTHY EXCESSES

Life is all that exist: real and abstract. The life, as it is known, consists of numerous worlds. In the real and living life, there are worlds of human, insects, animals, microbes, plants and those unknown. In the abstract and non-living life, there are worlds of jinn, angels, galaxies, celestial system and its millions/billions of planets. In the modern world of human race where what is provable is central to belief, the world of jinn and angels are put in contestable perspective. Of course, the belief of existence of angelic world would be polarized among human because its claim of existence was brought about by religions; just like the story of life of departed souls. However, the world of jinn would be less contested as human has proved it with diabolic science in the performance of magic. Each world is unique: performing specific role; aligning towards specific direction and set to achieve specific goal. Though each world is unique, all the worlds are complementary. In a broad sense, the real and abstract life’s are one entity sustained in a delicate union. A human, nurtured by earth, is a unity of soul and material. The earth is living on the sustenance provided by the sun. The sun was borne by a galaxy, and the trend extends on. Therefore, material and spirit is life.

Here identified are four features central to all living worlds. Three of which are striven for and symbolized the ingredients of survival of the fittest. Two of which are for the attainment of goals set by the Creator of the worlds as the essence of life.

The first of these features is nutrition. The animals, including human, move about day and night for food. Every living thing- young or old, male or female- needs food. The human community as organized, sophisticated and advanced as it were, did so, whether consciously or otherwise, to have food on the table in order to keep material body and spirit soul together. Food, water and air are the ingredients of nutrition. Living things strive for appropriate food; air is abundantly available freely. Human endeavour may have diverged from the fundamental agriculture and diffuses into crescendo of medicine and astronomy, quality appropriate food defines longevity of life while advanced health delivery improves quality of life. Of course, many have died young in the hand of most advanced health delivery. A living entity can only lay claim to food eaten as truly its sole property, except in peculiar case where worm share the food and general case where feaces returns to the mother earth. The estates, money saved and other properties claimed are materials which belong to the material world indeed. We may claim their lordship for a period of our sojourning. For every living entity, what actually belongs to it is what it has eaten, and that is what it needs to sustain life.

The shelter comes in second place. After food, the next is where to live. Every living creature needs a home. The shelter may include home to live in; cloth to wear; and vehicle to drive. A home is only necessary to be a bit larger than the living creature to live in it. Even if a man has a thousand houses in a housing estate; he can only sleep in one room at a time. A car is its owner at that particular time of driving. The same thing can be said of other elements of shelter. A man with countless units of elements of shelter needs only a unit of each at a given time.

The third of these common features of living creatures is reproduction. Reproduction is of whose benefit? The Creator carefully, systematically and scientifically propagates its creation through sexual conjugation. The sexual gratification- a bait but mutual in nature, is the pull that sustains reproduction system. This feature is fulfilling a purpose of creation for the Creator, however the creatures may not be oblivious of it. Religiously, the Creator created the heaven and the worlds. The heaven contains the Paradise and the hell. The worlds are the galaxies. His intention, accordingly, was to fill both the Paradise and the hell with humans and jinn, but created Adam and then Eve- two human beings. He then installed the reproduction system in them as replicating science. The creator masterfully designed the anatomy and physiology of the living creatures, that at some point, their physique serves as template for sexual attraction. In human female, for instance, the protruded breasts and extruded buttocks are platform for sexual gratification- pre-reproduction dazzling. In plant, the female bears beautiful and attractive flowers which categories of dispersals visit and contract fertilization unconsciously while seeking food. This reproduction strategy is applicable to all living creatures- the birds, the beast, the lower and higher animals etc. After brief sexual intimacy enjoyment, of what benefit is reproduction to living creatures? The hen would incubate its eggs; brood the chicks and then weaned them. The weaned chick forges its path in life. Of what benefit is the weaned chick to the mother hen? Think of goat and its kid; elephant and its calf; dog and its puppy; pig and its piglet; horse and its colt; monkey and its infant etc. Of what benefit are these young ones to their parents? Of course, nil. And human being? Human is the most advanced of the higher animals with the most developed brain. Then, of what benefit is a child to man? After the brief sexual acclimatization, what next? The mother would need to endure trauma of pregnancy and labour, while father and/or mother run around for means of livelihood. The parents would go all out of their convenience to ensure the child gets maximum care and protection. Eventually, the child lives independently of the parents after years of maximum sacrifice. In the advanced economy, the system is in place to take care of individuals: job, medical, economy, social, education, and so on. If a parent would need assistance of his/her child, then it would be emotional support or excess materialism. It is of less importance to give me what I do not lack. In the developing economy, the child starts his/her own family much earlier, busy seeking means of livelihood. In some cases, the parent/s still care/s for the family of the child. A careful circumspection of the reproduction system would reveal that sexual acclimatization is the only exclusive enjoyment for the participants while the products (young ones) are for the realization of the Creator’s goal.

Death is sacrosanct. The creature had eaten to sustain life. It had sheltered self for protection. It had unconsciously involved in reproduction for the will of the Creator to be done. The life it had passionately admired would be taken without its knowledge. At this point, the ocean of wealth- money, houses, descendants etc would be of no use for both its earthy remains and the departed soul. Religiously and scientifically the life would come to an end. Scientifically, the life on earth would cease when the sun goes out of its fuel and becomes gigantic red. Then the force of attraction that keeps the planets in place will yield. And then the planets, including earth, would vie off into the outer space and frozen out.

If all is oblivion of the fact that our fundamental needs, which are adequate for a living, are food and shelter; and others are mere filthy excesses, the greediness that is leading the human into destruction would have been less puzzled. Now let all know that the amassed wealth through corruption is truly not yours- it belongs to material earth. Then corruption can lead you into worldly chastisement, may be in the life after death too. LET US ALL SHUN CORRUPTION.
