The human arrogance

As usual, it all started with an exchange on Facebook.
Someone wanted to know if I believed in fate. This got me going.
Aren’t human beings the most arrogant living beings on this planet?
We seem to think that the entire universe revolves around us – the
tiny speck of 7 billion or so who inherit a planet called Earth
which is a miniscule object in the galaxy. We seem to think that
someone out there is patiently keeping track of our doings,
generation after generation, taking care of us (just us), minute
after minute and also spends time predetermining our course of life
person by person before we are born, thus drawing our fate, all
while, either completely ignoring everything else that seem to fill
this universe, or managing all of them just as well as we are being
taken care of, about which we as human beings don’t care much
about, because we are after all the center of everything. Ha. I
tell you….The human arrogance!


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there! Note: All views expressed in this blog are mine alone and have got nothing to do with my company Cogent IBS, Inc., its employees or any of its affiliates.
