Apparently before the beginning was the void. Then eons ago for an unknown reason there was a theoretical "big bang" after which Nature began conceiving and filling the void with life.
One conception was humanity. Our predecessors began "reaching out the the limits of their capacities, to others and to Nature's God. They continued this exclusive natural activity until they had created our present physical form and realized the potential mental capacity that enabled 'Eve' to ask 'Adam', "Why am I?", the question of meaning, the small bang, that gave birth to humanity.
When 'Eve' picked the 'rose' 'Adam' replied, "I don't know", but having an instinctive fear of the unknown he made up an answer with which he tried to fill the void. He couldn't for "Why am I?" can't be answered. It was the first why and it will be "the last why". Nevertheless, despite the knowledge that has been acquired since, we still have the same realized mental capacity as 'Adam', so we keep trying to fill the void.
Natural activity is 'white', self-creative and apparently, ideal. Unnatural activity is 'black', self-destructive, the antithesis of ideal. To the extent we try to fill the void we restrict "reaching out..." According to the law of human nature we blend complementary amounts of both in our lives thus by individual choices humanity can be any shade of grey between self-creation and self-destruction.
It is obvious we are a very dark shade of grey and getting darker by the day; but if there's time there's hope we can become lighter and avoid any self-destruction. We can't replant the 'rose' nor would we want to, but we can accept the void can't be filled, empty it of the ways we try to fill it, set Nature free and return to entirely natural activity, apparently the ideal reaction to the void.
