Animal and Man
I was walking down the street with my girlfriend when I saw an alley cat that was about to devour a pigeon.
As my girlfriend stood there watching, I immediately stepped forward to save that poor pigeon from the cat`s mouth.
While I was doing this, I heard my girlfriend say:
"Let the cat eat the pigeon."
Not paying attention on what she said, I jumped immediately to the scene, kicked the cat out of the alley and approached that pigeon. That poor bird was badly hurt.
I carefully lifted the pigeon and went to a shop nearby to get a bag, put the pigeon in, and headed home to heal it.
On my way home my girlfriend said : “Nature created the cat to devour smaller animals to feed itself, why did you interfere?"
My reply to her was, "Nature also created the human being not to allow such things because he is human."
Later I brought that bird home, healed his wounds, fed it, and after a week or so, I put it on my window`s pane to let it fly whenever it wanted. Days passed and suddenly one day it flew away; but to my surprise, he came back to my window`s pane the next morning staring at me as though he wanted to thank me for what I did. That gave me such a good feeling that I have no words to express it, as well as a lesson in wisdom.
If the wild animals would give up their ways to kill other animals to survive, perhaps their brain would develop to find different kinds of food. Thus they would evolve with a larger brain that would be able even to communicate and be like us; in other words, to humanize. But we as humans have a long, long way to go.
Only when we stop killing each other, and end all the wars, then I believe we would evolve to be super or divine-humans.
