Why am I 100% optimistic about the future?

Question from the Internet:

“What percentage are you optimistic about the future?”

I am 100% optimistic and confident since a positive outcome in the future does not depend on us, it is predetermined by Nature’s evolution.

We will reach the most optimal, unique, unparalleled evolutionary human state, purpose evolution determined for us with or without our consent, the question is only about our participation in this process.

Our only free choice relates to how we will go through the fundamental changes, the unprecedented development we need to take part in for reaching the optimal, final outcome.

We can continue evolving, changing blindly, instinctively, crisis situations, civilizational breakdowns, intolerable suffering molding, pushing us forward.

Or, we can consciously, purposefully, and methodically learn about our role, about the changes we need to initiate, and then we can progress, develop always a step ahead of the blows, ourselves choosing, initiating the next developmental state before we are “beaten to it” by Nature.

This seemingly “virtual choice” is much greater than any of the illusory, personal, individualistic choices we ever imagined for ourselves.

By willingly. proactively choosing, with full awareness of what Nature’s evolution determined for us as next state without waiting for Nature’s forces to push us to it, we can harness Nature’s all-encompassing developmental forces and direct our own changes, upgrade as if we ourselves designed and controlled the process.

This tangibly, realistically makes us the only conscious, partnering elements in Nature’s otherwise fully instinctive, automatic system.
