Brain at the Top of the World
Algebra, Great Pyramid, paintings, big bang theory and the nuclear weapons... In the modern world, it seems that everything a person needed to know is already discovered, being said, created, built, repeated, written, rewritten and proved all over again. These discoveries made the life of modern people convenient, easy and comfortable. It is hard to think of what might still be discovered, scary even. Certainly, all these creations aside from the earth itself, which were still being debated over, are produced through the powers of mind that came from human beings.
It is weird, living in all this crazy stuff such as technology; people still know how to get worried. They still know what happened during the Ice Age and that people still strives for more comfort, where in fact, the only thing that people should be worried about now is survival. How can a person enjoy all the benefits the world can give if he's already dead? So one of the great things about being a rational being is that having the chance to think of how to best survive and enjoy living. The powers of mind made it possible for humans to survive. And in surviving, people understand other living things and the world. It is surely not a coincidence that wherever humans come from, brain is on top of the head and body. And if there is God, then humans are the real care takers of this world.
Aristotle, Newton, Gandhi etc... Anyone can name people who had contributed to make this world a better place. All of them made an impact but some of them died because of that impact they gave the world. Some invented something for this betterment and some people used it for ghastly goals for the world. No matter what happened to these special people who had served as care takers of the world or just simply bored out of their scientific or high average IQ mind that they discovered that the world is not flat, they are the ones who had proved the true powers of mind. It seems that nothing is impossible except for superman.
Even though aliens, superheroes and extraordinary powers do not truly exist, people should not exploit (in an abusive way) the brain. The powers of mind rely on its capacity and the way a person develops and enhances it. Therefore, even the brain is at top of everything else, the body should also be given a special care for mind to work properly. People don't need to prove that they are the highest form in animal kingdom. People don't need to kill themselves to prove that they have, indeed, an intellectual mind. People don't need to prove that they are rational beings. It is already proven. The only thing that people should be worried about is survival and everything that comes with it. It will not kill people to follow certain dietary tips, exercises, drink lots of water and to sleep enough. Sometimes, when everything gets too tiring because there's just too much in this world, people, which has its sanity intact, should love their mind and body.
