Lue Elizondo makes many strides towards answering the question “why somber?” in reference to his claim that we’ll feel somber after disclosure to some extent from comments on a prior interview.

My response to this is the following:

Zoo keepers are part of the zoo, technically speaking.

Additionally, as we are evolving as a species, we’re recognizing the worth of every animal, every intelligence, every being more and more, day by day.

That same trajectory of enlightenment that a far more advanced species/civilization/culture would likely follow will extrapolate much, much further.

Benevolence and or altruism is near the top of that enlightenment, though with a certain regard for keeping the wilderness wild.

That’s prime directive territory and zookeeper territory. We might still be the zookeepers, but our managers reign from above us, basically zookeeping our zookeeping alongside likely an untold number of other planets with zookeeper civilizations.

We won’t need many of those institutions after we become much more enlightened over generations upon generations, but we’re still a long ways away from bootstrapping our own enlightenment (philosophic/educational/cultural/technological/epistemological) before religion deprecates.

Religion serves as a life blueprint, an outline for living, for those whom these very abstract, cerebral, and hard to fathom concepts of existence in the cosmos are not well received or palatable.

Laypeople are happy (as the human animal we were born to be) with religion.

It answers the tougher questions with parables, stories, dogmas, orthodoxy that makes it rules based and analogous to human life. It’s understandable, full of imagery, metaphors, and answers to many daily tribulations for humans as the intermediate step between primate to angel.

As we ascend higher in our pursuits, our collective and individual achievements will start to seek the enlightenment that will free us from the need and desire for more earthly religiosity and instead we’ll find the discomfort in the cosmos slowly less absurd and less ineffable.
