A Fish and the Ten Percent's Brain Mystery
I had deep thoughts on man.
Is he God’s masterpiece or a fiasco?
I determined, man is God’s failed handiwork.
The reason being, although God gave man a specially designed brain
that is way superior from all other creatures, man’s uniquely
designed brain is not any better than a mannequin’s brain
attired with the latest fashion dress watching passersby from
inside a show window. The mannequin’s brain is not for practical use
but solely for display.
In the ten percent’s brain mystery,
it is a waste for man not utilizing
ninety percent of the remaining brain. More than a waste,
it is poison because man dips ten percent of his brain
in and out of polluted water ideates nothing but evil.
There was Eden in the beginning of the world,
and in the middle of the garden there was a tree
that will bear God forbidden fruits though it unnecessarily
stands there just like a man’s brain. Man ate fruit anyway—although
the serpent told man’s companion to eat because he will take responsibility,
and became the way we are now. Even if man did not eat, it will not make
a difference in human nature.
If man fills remaining ninety percent of space
with thinking processing media and wholly utilizes it,
man will become god crossing over the God’s inviolable domain.
And that’s why, to humankind,
there is a story about a pathetic fish*
which abandoned water to reach the dry land.
The fish labors on land breathing with its dried up gills,
suffers under mistreatment and all kinds of mockeries men make.
The story sad and grim continues,
the fish, in order to reinstall the good relationship between God
and His creature, he was put on a spit through a bone torn off from
his own flesh stood on the mound of death, the body dried
under the scorching sun, twisting in the boiling air.
How could we survive in this trying world
without this story so sad; yet exceedingly beautifully
fabricated with only ten percent of the brain, man’s mystery.
because the fish with no dazzling color would infatuate
onlookers eyes or is streamlined that enables swift maneuver
in the water, man became not failure but God’s masterpiece.
IXTHUS: is Greek word for Fish and when undo the letters and place in the row with new word begins with each letter it becomes: Jesus, Christ, God, Son, and Salvation. That’s why Fish symbolizes Jesus Christ, as well as basis for the profession of Christian faith.
