Mumbai terrorist attack, 26th -29th Dec 2008
Millions of people around the globe watched a few young, angry, full of hate men kill Innocent people without any remorse. What was particularly perturbing was the fact that they seemed to really enjoy it. After all they were going to be Hero's for all those who follow the same cause of hate.
These young men were clearly remote controlled through the 60 hours of battle. They were constantly on the phone with their mentors in Pakistan. They were following directions to the T. For the youth had passion but not the intelligence that came with age.
Did they do this because they were promised a glorious after life, I think not. It was their ego that was played with, they were promised a Heroic life. The jaded older men who are so full of hate, used these foolish young men. Maybe they promised the boys that they would come back as Hero's, that their dark world will look up to these men. Clearly they were not prepared to die...they were here to earn a rewarded heroic life.
Hero: Why is it so important us humans to be hero's?? what is it that exists in our genes that makes us desire to stand out and be revered. The animal species only kills either to feed or in self defence. What mutated in our genes that we want to kill just to become hero's? While our brain expanded and grew over 1000s of years it also developed these "feelings" that can be enhanced or played with.
We are the only species that walk the earth, who kills for pure pleasure. Is the very brain that grew in order for the man to protect himself, be the very reason the species might end one day??
Seed for thought?!!
