What is the uniqueness of our generation?
Question from the Internet:
“How will the world and humanity be in the next century, and in what way will our great-great-grandchildren look back at our times?”
Our great-great-grandchildren will look back at our times as the greatest turning point in human history, when this unique generation went through an evolutionary revolution, switching from the previous, blind, instinctive development — driven by the selfish, exploitative, individualistic ego — to a “Nature-like”, mutually responsible and mutually complementing, collective development.
We can already see, that without purposefully, methodically built, positive co-existence, cooperation we have no right to survive and exist in Nature’s fully integrated, lawful, and deterministic system. Without changing how we relate to each other and Nature we are like cancer, destroying everything around us and destroying ourselves.
Thus the above-mentioned evolutionary revolution will happen without our free choice. Our choice is in foregoing the changes, consciously, methodically adapting ourselves to Nature’s integral system, or waiting for the inevitable, worsening, and finally intolerable suffering that will change us against our will.
