How complicated we think we are but we are not.

I over think everything until the thought has nowhere to go, this is a curse and blessing to me. As a person curious of war and love... I always want to find out why (at least humans) have these urges. It dawned on me how tiny this large scale problem/feeling really is, that's single cells. Think of Osmosis Jones, the body goes to war and harmonizes within it's host to protect said host. Red and white blood cells at war, foreign objects that disrupt the harmony of the body are waged against. Then there is cellular reproduction. What happens when there is an over abundance of white blood cells clustered together? Cancer/tumors. Getting too "sciencey"... here is a breakdown.
You get a splinter, this is not something your body wants inside of it... your white blood cells attack the splinter to force it out. Or if your cells are weak, they will succumb to the infection. Thus, the splinter wins this war. Correlation to - the human mind and the way we work. Say there is someone/something coming here to take what is ours, we attack it and if we are not strong enough to win, they take over and we lose the fight (now even BIGGER is the antibiotics science creates) aka, weapons to kill the object in these cases, like IDK... guns? tanks? missiles?
Now to the old reproduction of things. (I am talking about white blood cells btw) an overabundance of these cells also can kill the host. Too many of a good thing can be a very BAD thing. Think of this on our own level of population and population control. We are the white blood cells, the more of us there is, the more of us that need to go before we kill our host, which is EARTH. So there is damage control on this - plagues. The attackers or self attacks. How the environment eradicates us to make sure we don't kill our host well... that's another discussion.
Sometimes I come out with these thoughts and write them down, sometimes I just tell a few people and the next thing I know... something like injecting tumors with the HIV virus happens as it should've been done so long ago. Of course, you will get HIV... but that can boost your longevity over a group of tumors... do you see where the environment is now a factor
There you have it, my giant thought on the tiny things that make up who we are. Overproduction of people, the wars we wage and the way the world works to keep us in check in case we get a little too out of control.
