Technology alone cannot solve our problems — the “user” needs to change first!
Question from the Internet:
“To what extent can the apocalypse that people talk about on the internet be averted through our technological advances?”
Our technological advancement — which at the moment we use for weapons, spying on people, manipulating the masses — will only hasten the predicted apocalypse.
Of course, the same technological ability could help us build a real-life “Garden of Eden” on Earth. But for that the users, ourselves have to change.
If we changed our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, ruthlessly competitive and incessantly, excessively overconsuming operating software/intentions, upgrading, complementing it with Nature’s selflessly, unconditionally mutually integrating, serving software/intention, then everything we have would enable us to actually become the “masters of the Universe”.
By consciously adapting ourselves to Nature’s mutually integrated, mutually complementing template we would become the system’s only conscious, integrated nut independent partners, observers.
Achieving this is our predetermined, evolutionary Human role, purpose in Nature, and we can reach it either consciously, proactively, or as a result of intolerable suffering, as a handful of survivors of that seemingly inevitable apocalypse.
