Is Humanity progressing or regressing?!
Question from the Internet:
“Is humanity on a progressive or regressive trajectory, or in a state of flux?”
We are constantly in a progressive developmental process. After all, we are born from Nature, we still exist in Nature and we are still integral subjects of Nature’s relentless and deterministic evolutionary process.
The question is now whether we keep on evolving and progressing towards some more and more optimal future state.
The question is if we are conscious about this process if we actually learn how to purposefully and willingly participate in this process as partners, or if we are blindly shaken, pushed and pulled by Nature’s forces and its evolution, helplessly lurching from one extreme to another, stumbling through vicious historic cycles and crisis situation, always waiting for intolerable suffering to force us to grow and change.
Human beings are the only elements of Nature’s system who received the chance and ability to consciously and willingly recognize who they are, where they are and to purposefully adapt themselves to Nature’s developmental flow in full agreement with their own proactive efforts.
It is our unique generation — that is also standing on the threshold of potential self-extermination events — that can start this completely new, conscious and proactive phase of Human development, taking out fate and the completion of Human evolution into our own hands.
