There was a time when absolutely ALL of which collective, and most individual Perception could see were
Yes or No,
Left or Right,
Up or Down,
In or Out,
Top or Bottom
Masculine or Feminine,
Right or Wrong,
Male or Female,
White or Black,
Hard or Soft
Difficult or Easy
God or Devil
Goddess or God
Good or Bad
Have or Have-Not
Alive or Dead
Today or Tomorrow
And so forth, etc...
However, there are many other options, many directions, many different ways which reach in, out, through and beyond all the above aforementioned.
Who told you, that you were naked?
Who told you, it is yes or no?
In our times, the Collective & Individual Perception of this Species is finally noticing it is all this very Species' own "made-up/invented" many Belief and Language and their associated collections of this Species' own (again made-up/invented) Values & Ways of Conduct.
Each member of this Species can and may choose to see beyond the binary mediocrity of its traditions, values and ways.
Because there is no peace in the extremes of Yes or No, because today and tomorrow may always modify the Old into the New as it has been doing since the beginning of Time and Life Herself.
Wilful Ignorance or Intellectual Dishonesty cannot shield anything nor anybody for ever, because nobody/nothing can protect you from Evolution.
We all must evolve beyond the economy of our belief and language, we all will move beyond the infantile simplicity of yes or no, happy or sad, good or bad, etc.
We have an appointment with our own Evolution and none of us will miss it because it is inside of us and outside of us and it cannot be avoided.
Remember there is much more than the ghastly confines of this Species many accommodated Belief and Language of choice and their associated Values and Ways of Conduct.
I have no ending for this, so I will simply rest the text.
