Peter Cook focuses on ''Conscious Living'' in his ''Hydrogen to Human'' Project

"It would seem that the human race is at a crossroads, because for the

first time ever, we can see things not just from a global perspective,

but a universal one," writes Peter Cook, a British expat living in Taiwan.

"That should help us to make future choices, but a glance at the long run of human

history shows that we are flawed as a species,

and not the masters of the Earth as we once thought.''

Cook has been working in Taiwan on a project he calls “Hydrogen to Human,”

and which details the self-assembly of everything in the universe, which

includes human behavior.

"Because we can look at all cultures on the

Earth in real time, we can see which behaviors are common to them all," he says.

Cook adds: "Logic tells you this is who “we” are. The other behavior will have

patterns that are the same, even though the behavior is completely

different. This can also be used as evidence to predict what we will

do in the future."

Take World War I and the current financial mismanagement in Europe and

the US, for example, Cook says, noting "You would think that with just a little bit of foresight,

people would have sidestepped these problems, they were so obvious.

However, we don’t see the obvious until the amount of pain we have to

endure forces us to change."

"Why? Because we are still very much animals whose bodies are a

relationship between two interdependent partners, a mind and a body.

Work from basic principles now, they never let you down. The mind

floods the body with chemicals to make it behave in certain ways. This

simply allows the mind to exist (that’s how DNA works, to just exist)," Cook writes.

"The body needs a control mechanism so it can exist. Because human

beings have no bodily weapons, we rely on tool-making and cooperation

to get the better of the animals we share the world with. We are

programmed to conform, not to make calm logical decisions based on the

current philosophical concepts of the day. We react to the chemicals

in our bodies first and think later (test this the next time you are

driving). As the only animal that can do the opposite of what the

chemicals tell us to, why don’t we? It is very difficult to do, as any

addict will tell you. When you fall in love, or hate, it’s all but

impossible to react calmly."

"The moneymakers and warmongers have learned to exploit this to their

own advantage, another universal trait. Good education can teach the

next generation what to do before the chemicals kick in: They can

react to intelligent rules, rather than chemical ones."

"The problems caused by over-conforming can now be clearly seen:

Religion is now ironically the biggest threat to world peace, the

banks who are supposed to safeguard our savings turned out to be the

biggest thieves and looking from a universal perspective, humans on

the Earth are a product of what DNA does, so we could go on

reproducing like a virus until we kill our host."

In conclusion, Cook says: "We do have a choice, and that requires the number of people who are

making intelligent choices to have more influence than those who make

chemically driven reactions. Technology does not make anybody smarter:

If you are making a mistake, you just make it faster. Good education

with logic rather than emotion as an underlying principle gives us a

tool to save us from our own DNA."
