Is conservation our attempt to tamper with Evolution and danger it forever?
If Natural Selection theory is treated as gospel then we understand that existence moves from lower to higher level – then by giving the lower organisms – lower existences – a better than natural chance and probability of survival then are we not tampering with the future of our evolution? Are we not guaranteeing survival of the “not-so-fittest”??
On the other hand, if Intelligence and Consciousness is considered true then we have an element of “evolution” or growth – from lower consciousness to a higher consciousness. So as more and more humans replace the animals and other lower organisms, does it not mean that consciousness is finally getting a shot at greater evolution and has at least shifted as an aggregate at a higher “orbit of consciousness”? By encouraging sustained life of animals are we not restraining – artifically – the consciousness to lower levels?
Whatever we have manifested – through our brains and actions i.e.; destruction of environment was part of our involution to start with.. it has merely evolved now. We are not attempting something that was not part of consciousness or a stranger to it anyways!
Personally, I am for conservation but I tried to use these two paradigms to think through the future sanctity of the eternal principles!
