The difference between change and progress

Question from the Internet:

“In human sciences, how does one differentiate between progress and change?”

Change simply describes a difference between a previous state compared to a new one.

Progress is chain of purposeful changes, when we can identify the cause and effect processes behind the sequential changes.

Our problem with the present Human sciences is that we don’t know the purpose, we can’t identify the cause and effect processes behind that changes we go through.

This is why history is seemingly a blind chain of recurring vicious cycles, while in our lives we also blindly stumble from one crisis to the next.

This is why we need a unique, purposeful and practical method that can teach us our overall, evolutionary purpose and explain the cause and effect chains behind everything that happens to us.

Then we can change a blind, instinctive process to a conscious, purposeful one.
