Scientists refer to our survival gene which supposedly saves us from self destruction and the dangers that we face in this world . This survival gene helps us live in the world and keep us away from outside threats in a dangerous world full of enemies who want to kill or harm us .
This survival gene is actually not a gene as such but comes from our belief system which tells us that we can die and be harmed . In a sense this is true but it is not our real Self that is in danger but the smaller imaginary ‘ I ‘ which we think we are . We believe we are separate bodies that can die and the body does die, but we are not our Body .
We are not physical beings in reality and the physical world is just an illusion which we have come to believe is real . Our belief system is entirely logical if the world was real and the survival gene entirely plausible .
However our real Self has no need of a survival gene as it knows that it is invulnerable to any sort of harm . Survival is not an issue as it knows we are eternal and this goes for all consciousness .
In reality there is no need for a survival gene as we are at all times completely safe but this is not the case for the imaginary ‘ I ‘ which is in danger . It doesn’t exist and never has, apart from in our Mind .
