We need to know what evolution demands from us

Question from the Internet:

“Is it important to you, personally, to know about human evolution? Why or why not?”

It is extremely important to know about human evolution, especially what evolution expects from us in relation to the future.

Nature’s evolution is not a random affair, it is a relentless, deterministic process that leads to a most optimal final outcome.

In that most optimal final outcome Humanity plays an unparalleled, highly important part - becoming conscious partners with Nature, as the system’s on one hand independent, on the other hand fully integrated, insider observers.

By learning about this role we need to fulfill we can consciously, purposefully, methodically prepare, adapt ourselves to it instead of waiting for Nature to push us to that state against our will through suffering, blows.
