Why do humans exist?
The youth of the Damanhur Middle School interviewed Falco for Qui Damanhur Ragazzi, a self-produced journal made by the students themselves. Here is the first of a series of their questions and Falco’s answers. Enjoy!
Demetra (6th grade): Why do humans exist, and what purpose do they serve?
Falco: Each world that can be inhabited operates based on a principle of evolution. Various species are developed, a little by chance, a little based on ability, a little by luck. For example, it seems that if it were not for a large meteorite that fell to the Earth sixty million years ago, there would be no humans here, and there would still be dinosaurs. Maybe in this room, there would be dinosaurs instead of humans, and so on. But species are developed to create, to give power to a principle, which is called complexity: that is, things don’t get more complicated, but more elaborate. Why? Because in this way, something else, which is called the soul, a fundamental principle, has a way to evaluate itself, to act in the midst of everything. If there were no humans, this would not change: there would be other species that would have taken our place.
When a species becomes sufficiently complex, then it hosts something called “soul structure” or “divine spark,” that is, something that allows one to go much further than the principle of life, and can even allow what we call reincarnations, missions, transitions from one world to another, etc., because like this, life evolves further and becomes increasingly complex.
Humans are here for this reason, but if there were no human beings, other species would have taken our place. And if we are not able to sufficiently move forward in this program as a species, we will disappear, and other species will take our place.
