In regards to aspects, is the Sun always the superior planet or always the inferior? Or neither?

Today I read about superior/inferior planets for the first time, which makes aspects (especially squares) make a lot more sense. If you're unfamiliar, a planet is superior (in terms of significance) to another if its orbit is larger than the other planet, in regards to the sun. So in terms of Earth: the planets Mercury and Venus are inferior because their orbits are within the Earth's orbit and closer to the sun, while Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are superior to the Earth. Interestingly, Pluto is considered superior to Earth as its orbit is so large, which makes a lot of sense in terms of Pluto being the subconscious planet, where things that affect you even if they are small/unknown.

Anyway, this is significant in the square aspect, where typically the energy of the superior planet will put pressure on the inferior planet, as opposed to a trine or sextile where the energies are mutually flowing and harmonious.

So my question is: how does the Sun fit in this equation? I want to assume its superior to the others due to its significance, but technically it is the body with the smallest orbit (in regards to our solar system, it has no orbit as it is what the other bodies orbit around).

For example, in my chart I have Sun in Scorpio square Moon in Leo -- in this case, is it my Sun squaring my Moon or my Moon squaring my Sun?? Which planet has a leg up on the other, so to speak? Or is it neither?

Let's have a thought experiment: How would society look like if we had a 2nd human species (mentally inferior, but physically equal) on our planet?

Can't sleep, and this question popped into my head.

Maybe some definitions:

  • With physically equal I mean that they are as strong, quick, enduring, etc. as normal humans. That doesn't say much about their statue, but let's assume they're not much taller/smaller than we are.

  • With mentally inferior i mean:

    • They can learn and perform simple tasks, such as assembling, cleaning, etc.
    • They could learn simple maths. As well as reading/writing (maybe a simplified alphabet). But it would take a lot longer than it would so with any human.
    • They cannot grasp complex concepts of engineering, higher maths, physics, law or philosophy.
    • They obviously have self-awareness.
    • They have obviously basic emotions like joy or fear.

Now my question is, how would today's society look like? Knowing Human Nature, I have no doubt we would "rule" them. But how?

Would we hold them as slaves?

Would we use them as soldiers to fight our wars?

Would we get them to do all our menial/dirty tasks (think assembly workers, farmers, trashmen, etc.)

Would religion be any different?

How would we keep them content?

Would we, as the "intelligent" species, have advanced technology (space exploration, energy generation, etc.) further than we have today?

Would there movements/discussions go give them equal rights?

I view most humans as inferior to all other animal species on this planet

Does anyone else feel this way? I mean nearly all species that reproduce on this planet do not have developed enough brains to overcome instinct.

However human beings do. After all, having the highest brain mass to overall body mass ratio allows for this. Being able to comprehend and contemplate the consequences of your actions is what separates us from animals.

However, so many people choose to act on their lizard brain as opposed to the neo cortex. And it is for this reason the fact that most human beings ESPECIALLY TODAY WITH THE INTERNET still do not contemplate their actions that I look down on them.

They are worse than the animals that lack the capacity to weigh the pros and cons.

Reddit discusses discovering an 'inferior' race of beings on a new planet

I know this post is kind of a stretch, but I needed to get this off of my mind.

So I found this post on my frontpage this afternoon:

http://www.np.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/1cq554/if_we_were_to_fly_to_a_planet_with_an_inferior/

Looking at the title, I knew I would find typical redditor entitlement and a sense of smug superiority, but going inside left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

>I dont know, lets ask the native americans.

...and the thread already starts off with drawing a parallel by using the 'Native Americans' as an inferior race. The amount of comments that mirrors this opinion shock me.

>Remember Northern American circa the 1400s? Sorta like that.

Oh yeah! Remember the Native Americans? They were sooooo inferior to us scholars and gentlemen! It's not like they were part of the same species or anything....

> We would be civil with them as long as they don't have any resources that we want/need. If they do, we would require that they move so that we can consume it. If they refuse, see Native American history.

We can't help it guys! We would just have to exploit them because they are inherently what we perceive as inferior!

Thankfully, there are a few comments calling the entire premise of the question as labeling things as 'inferior'.

It just shows what kind of a mentality we still hold as a species that despite all the atrocities that have been committed with the premise of racial superiority, we still can't identify what is inherently wrong with even asking what to do with an 'inferior' species, and that subjugation of what is perceived as inferior is inevitable.

Disgusting.
