No one is one-dimensional because all of our experiences and stories are their own dimension (time, place, space.) Although we have been programmed in some ways to obey, do as we're told, conform, brainwashed, but through modernity we have expanded our freedoms. People make money online, or have little shops to get by, and some make it rich if the idea is crazy enough. But, this could also create a sense of anomie--where there is too much freedom for some, and not enough freedom for others.
Then this evokes the idea of inequality and the
division within society, or even the conflict of society that drives
change. We see that throughout history, our world is constructed of
dialectical relationships, where there are opposites of the same side.
There is a yin and yang quality of life, where opposites are
complementary and interconnected in the natural world. We're
interconnected in that we all have the same needs. For example, we all
need affection, love, connection, integrity, well-being, but not
everyone is the same in the ideas we project, or the projects we
ideal...because we come from different standpoints.
female are not opposite and sex is complementary! We play the role we
were born into, and we are socialized to act, dress, talk, think a
certain way thus like a self-fulfilling prophecy. We have a chance to
change with the little time we have on Earth if we want to. In this short
amount of time we have, there exists the concept of death, which we
fear more than anything. We fear death of ourselves and others closest
to us, so we create institutions around truth, justice, medicine,
education, science, research, language, and everything else that
encompasses the industrial, surveillanced, capitalistic arenas. At the
end of the day, we were meant to die, because if you were born and so you will die. But this doesn't necessarily have to be a negative aspect, because you are part of the universe and peoples and animals and plant life before you that have lived and died. Our biologic value on this
earth is to procreate and sustain life in our society and natural
environment. It is our abstract life that we create symbolic meaning and
value to things we cannot see or that we created like science, math,
language, symbols of religion/philosophy, etc.
this cycle repeats where there is conflict in our ideas within science,
religion, philosophy, language, etc. But humans are unique that we seek
the truth. We are an investigative species seeking the truth through
the different standpoints we've been given. We can be fooled or foiled
in the information we've been given, so we do our best to understand
with which we have been equipped.
all made up of particles from the universe. We share the same elements
as the plant and animal life, rock life, soil, and others in the
atmosphere. We have been life for billions of years, and humans for
hundreds of thousands of years giving feedback to one another and
creating language to create other institutions of life, to search for
the truth of who we really are and why we're here.
