mark and bill,
well i was just being analytic. i think if we are going to use this analogy and look at things from a biological point of view... then we are not only one body... but all of us came out of one single cell...
i always had a problem with the darwinian model (way from the past ), although i have no problem, but only respect, for charles, because if it wasn't for his hard work we would not have such a rich fossil collection (not to mention a change in creation philosophy of the western modern world). my problem, as many other scientists and amateurs point out, is all the missing links of evolution... for me, the fact that cell division transformed to cell fertilization for evolutionary and survivor benefits, does not explain when and how exactly the switch occurred. we all began as one cell dividing into two, and so on... then the switch... and from then it was two cells that create new life... obviously not far all creatures... but we are focusing on humans. so it is rather backwards... and it is our kids that contain both parents within the singular being... this is why i always say that one can always make two and two can always make one...
thus the solution/resolution is that using such analogies is rather pointless if we don't know how we really got here
the past is both, behind and ahead of us... we observe the furthest regions of the universe as they were billions of years ago, yet here on earth we are not able to observe the past in such a matter...
this is why i keep pushing forward the idea of "the ripple effect." if we would be going from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and then again 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, then we would be following a linear pattern... when obviously it all happens in a contraction/expansion matter, and thus the ripple effect and thus the water like attributes that the source field/force contains.
ha, sorry boys, i went on
love and light,
