Homogenised Humans

If we were all meant to be the same, wouldn’t we all look the same like robots?  There is a phrase “all things being equal .....” which is used when someone is looking to define something, to box something and label it.  How long it takes to get from one town to another, for instance; how tall humans grow; how much food or calories we need to eat for a certain weight. 

Statitstics are great at homogenising us, making us feel that we belong if we fit into those statistics or like freaks if we don’t.  The point is we are not equal and nor do we want to be.  We know that.  Some people want to be leaders and some people want to be led.  Some people like to have time alone, some people love to be busy with other people all the time.  Some people are natural workers, some are not.  Within the human species there is a hierarchy, just as there is in ants, bees, lions, elephants and all other species.  All things being equal is an impossible premise and should never be used for the basis of any discussion or presumption.  The only thing that we can rely on in this world is change.  Our genes love to mutate and evolve.

We all want to belong.  To what?  The human race?  I listened to a talk on Radio 4 in the car some weeks ago.  It was about a woman with a genetic spinal disability who wanted to have children.  Because she needed fertility treatment her case went to the ethics committee.  There was one doctor who was consulted, a member of the committee, who also had the same genetic condition.  What this woman, the doctor, said was incredible and will open the minds of anyone who judges who and what we should be.  She said that she had loved her life, loved who she was and would gladly invite children into the world who could share the kind of life that she had.  Just because she was genetically different, mutative, perhaps even more evolved (certainly with her thought process) than those without obvious physical disability, does not in any way mean that she is not entitled to a life experience.

We are all different.  We are not a homogenised group of people, as psychology and therapy would have us believe.  We are not here to make people like us, or to be do-gooders.  Some of us are even here to be selfish, to show how our own need to survive will help others to survive and mutate.  These people are doing an incredible job and should not be judged by their self-absorption.  When my sister begged her teenage son to be considerate as she had attempted to be all her life, I just had to tell her that he didn’t have a considerate bone in his body and just let him be. He’s a lovely kid and doesn’t need to be conditioned away from his real self.

The “homogenised” world is where we have to follow certain rules to conform, standards that don’t suit us all as individuals and force us to negate our truth so that we can all be “labelled” – bi-polar; attention deficit disorder etc.  The more we become what society wants us to be the more controllable we are – and if we rebel with ADD, the only way to let the teacher know that it is just not possible for small boys to sit quietly behind a desk, we are given suppressive drugs.  Our mind becomes our ruler as we are always watchful and alert for danger signals in case we are not behaving as we “should”.   Living who we “are not” can never make us happy or fulfilled.

When we can acknowledge that we are all different then we can belong to our race, our species, because we will be accepted for whoever we are.  Right now, particularly in the Western, over-educated mind centred world, we only belong if we fit into the correct parameters.  Otherwise we are labelled and sometimes institutionalised.
