Re: Difference Between Animal & Human

Re: Difference between Man & Animal
   
     The way I understand it from Blavatsky Theosophy 
is that the body is secondary, and primarily we 
are Human monads or spiritual beings, so to 
speak, that USE a body.  So human and animal 
bodies might not be that different, but just 
sufficiently (the subtlty of the brain matter, 
partially?) so that the human-animal body can 
be USED.  In the SD it says that at first the 
human monads Refused to incarnate - "They are 
not ready yet...." - refering to the bodies 
they had to incarnate in.  So looking at the 
bodies is looking at the wrong thing.  So 
what really constitues the human is Something 
>From Above, so to speak, and not just the 
body. There is a different being incarnating 
in them.  One, I think, can maybe even see 
this in the case of brain injuries or 
deteriorating in which the Human soul Leaves 
the body, as when it seems the real person 
you knew is no longer there anymore - like 
in alzheimers, etc.  The real human can no 
longer USE the body, and a lower nature of 
some type is left behind and running things.
  
    I think some dolphins and whales 
actually have bigger brains and frontal 
lobes than humans have.
