The Roles of Humans and the Relationship between Humans and Earth
Thanks to all participants! I thought posting this topic would provide a chance to see different opinions, views and perspectives. I think each opinion enriches this discussion because it represents one's own unique experience and understanding of life. (perhaps like many different plants would grow on a land that is watered with the exact same water - though healthy plants would need the right nutrients and access to sunlight, I think?) I could have replied to each comment and say 'I think this is good" or "I don't think this is good", but It was never my intention to impose my opinion. Thus, I'd like to ask you to think of the questions as an invitation for one (everyone including myself) to think and to state one's own answer. (There won't be gladiators or judges in this discussion. Everyone is welcome.)

The Roles of Humans and the Relationship between Humans and Earth
4. How do you describe the nature of "sinning"? This is while considering that: - the body, on its own, does not commit sins because it has no free will (I think?) - the soul's nature is beyond our knowledge - "The body" is described as "alive" when it has (or it contains) a "soul" and it is described as "dead" when the "soul" leaves it. A "dead" body is no longer any different from any other object like mud, chairs, mountains or sand. After death, "the body" slowly decays to basic elements and returns to earth. - There is a constant conflict between "the self" and "the mind". "The self" seeks to boundlessly fulfill its desires, even if it harms itself, while "the mind" keeps restraints (in the form of principles and beliefs for the individual human, or in the form of laws for a community) that ensure the safety of the individual human. (Also, what do you think the role of the 'heart' in this process is?)

2. If you agree with the belief that all angels and all beings in university (heavens and earth) worship God, and angels in particular worship God tirelessly, and considering that humans live on earth (so far, and until they die) and that the human body is not specially tough, physically, and that humans get tired quickly and they need to constantly meet certain basic needs (they need to sleep and eat etc) what do you think "the nature" of the role of humans on earth is?

The Roles of Humans and the Relationship between Humans and Earth
1. What do you think the primary roles of humans are? This is with the consideration that there may be a special relationship between humans and earth. (which is that human body is originally of dust and water, or mud, and that humans live all their (earthly'?) lives on earth and when they die the body - just the body, perhaps - becomes a part of earth.)

Man is the subject of all major religions. Why?
I think humans were given all that is needed (lifespan, resources, body, knowledge, etc) for them to perform the roles they were assigned. Humans (and all other creatures and objects) are also assigned different amounts of power or authority. I don't know about other creatures, but many humans abuse this power. Sometimes they have to deal with the consequences (and pay the price or reap what was sown) right away, sometimes later. Many humans may neglect their role(s), may deny the knowledge (in the Book(s)), or may misuse the resources they were given, but no one (human or other) misses (or escapes) an assigned point for each (and all) of them when it is no longer possible for them to personally change their "resume". There are assigned laws which ensure keeping (and restoration of) balance of life of all objects and creatures in the universe and of the universe itself. Many laws are mandatory, but it is optional for humans whether to enforce some of them or not. Again, the consequences must be dealt with right away or later. That is what I think according to what I know (so far), which is very little. (Also, I'm fully committed to my beliefs, especially my religious beliefs.)

What is the something you learned as an adult you wished you learned as a child?
Why would I want to change the past? I could think of myself as the experience of an action, that's possibly an intentional choice whether it's learnt or instinctive, happening during a specific context of life the existence of which is built of the actions, and choices, of all the living and material objects in the universe. This experience, the experiences that led to it and the experiences that resulted from it are all fated, nonrandom and determined to happen. The creation of all the objects within the contexts, including all the contexts themselves as objects is all by Allah's will. This experience and the current context and the consequent context may change according to the actions and choices we make, but we may have this kind of ability (of being able to choose) only until a certain context occurs when we part from the container we had and we are no longer an active part of this context. According to the previous description of the "moment", I think there is no point in trying to make a "redo", "apply changes" or "undo". It would be just like trying to deal with a new different context, which is what we are all already busy and fully committed to doing while adapting with the flow of events of the context of what we call "now". Of course this is all just my poor opinion according to my inferior thinking, my very limited field of view and my very limited knowledge. Also, my intention of trying to say something "good" may have affected my judgment and my choice of words. This means I may be mistaken at any or all that I said or may say. (Still, I'm fully committed to my beliefs, especially my religious beliefs.) Others could have a different description according to the context they are a part of. === (or perhaps I simply couldn't think of a good answer to your question at this moment even though I tried.)
