Vision of the future

Question from the Internet:

“What would be your optimistic and pessimistic visions of the future (in 2050)?”

We are born from Nature, we still exist and evolve within Nature, and as such we have a bright, purposeful, positive future guaranteed by Nature’s deterministic evolutionary plan.

Humanity has a unique, unparalleled, very high role, purpose in this plan and we will achieve that purpose within a relatively short time compared to previous evolution, previous human history.

Perhaps even by 2050 we will see extraordinary changes, we will see a harmonious, mutually integrated, positively, purposefully developing global human society.

The question is — and this is our only free choice in the matter — how we reach our final, most ideal state in our development?

Will we continue to blindly stumble from crisis to crisis, sinking into intolerable suffering to make us change how we exist, how we relate to each other and the world around us?

Or we start consciously, humbly recognizing our inherently selfish, egotistic, exploitative and individualistic nature as the root cause of all our problems, and then start protectively, methodically adjust ourselves to Nature’s laws and evolution’s direction?
