Consider: The missing element in every human 'solution' is an accurate definition of the creature. The way we define 'human' determines our view of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and future. Important? Only the Creator who made us in His own image is qualified to define us accurately. Choose wisely...there are results. Many problems in human experience are the result of false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies. Each individual human being possesses a unique, highly developed, and sensitive perception of diversity. Thus aware, man is endowed with a natural capability for enact- ing internal mental and external physical selectivity. Quantitative and qualitative choice-making thus lends itself as the superior basis of an active intelligence. Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall that his other features are but vehicles of experi- ence intent on the development of perceptive awareness and the following acts of decision and choice. Note that the products of man cannot define him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice- making process and include the cognition of self, the utility of experience, the development of value- measuring systems and language, and the accultur- ation of civilization. The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits, customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the creative process, is a choice-making process. His articles, constructs, and commodities, however marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol- atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own highest expression of the creative process. Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual- ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his singular and plural brow. Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural foundation of his environments, institutions, and re- spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien- ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the universe. Let us proclaim it. Behold! The Season of Generation-Choicemaker Joel 3:14 KJV - from The HUMAN PARADIGM
