no us.... the rest is guesswork as to the actual composition of dark matter and dark energy... They aren't made of atoms, that's for sure
you can't make us or matter for that matter, with neutrinos or particles.... so in fact,
it doesn't really change anything I wrote......
K: you want there to be a superior/inferior because it pleases your ego and you, Oh please
like most people think you are superior to most people.....playing superior music
is an accidental trait, not a substance... like having white hair or being 5 foot tall....
I can juggle and so what? it doesn't make me superior to those who can't juggle...Yes it does... at juggling. And no, it's not always accidental, sometimes it comes with hard work and practice.
there is no difference being able to juggle and being able to play music and play
video games... they are all accidental traits.... people can have or not have and it
doesn't change their basic nature, which is they are matter composed of atoms....
everything else is just details about that human form they are in this lifetime...
Most people don't need us to be made of completely different substances to be able to say some are superior to others.
K: if you read me closely, noticed I said, my atoms will be recycled into something...
what they will be recycled into is chance and luck and random.... I could be a tree or
a plant or a dog or another human being or part of the air or water... given that my atoms
will come back in some form at some time, I would like to come back to clean earth and
clean water because it is less work, less trouble to come back when the oceans are
clean then when they are dirty... I am thinking about my next recycle and I want
it to be a nice, clean experience and things like Obamacare will help that and
environmental regulations.... anything I can do now that will make my next recycle
easier and smoother, I should do now.....

I am superior because I was born this way is different then I can juggle better
then you and so I am superior then you.....you are mistaking an aspect of
doing something as a mark of being superior..... so what if I can do something
better then you... it doesn't make me superior to you.. it just means I can
do something better then you and every single person on planet earth
can do something better then someone else... I can juggle better then
billions of people and hundreds of millions can juggle better then me...
there is not superior in that and billions can do math better then me,
it doesn't make anybody superior to anyone else....whereas you guys are making
this superior thing an aspect of part of being born whereas it is an accidental
aspect, something we can do slightly better then someone else, not an aspect
of who we are, as an essential aspect of who we are.....by birth, I am superior to
you... you are part of the heard and I am superior to you and that is just nonsense,
or as I like to called it, ego masturbation... it makes you feel better about yourself,
THINKING you are superior when that is all that is, thinking, and not actually
superior......there is a difference.... and when you can tell the difference,
you are officially, mature......
