Our Aggression Could Destroy Us

Laitman_727Opinion (Steven Hawking, English Theoretical Physicist, Cosmologist, Author, Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge):

“’The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression. It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or a partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all,’ Hawking answered her, according to the Independent. ‘A major nuclear war would be the end of civilization, and maybe the end of the human race,’ he explained.

“Not only does human aggression no longer serve an obvious purpose, but technological advances, such as nuclear weaponry, have made it so that an incredible amount of damage could be done with very little effort by a small number of people. Hawking isn’t the only prominent scientist to have made this observation; Carl Sagan was outspoken against the development of nuclear arms during his life.

“[He was also asked] which human traits he would like to see more often. Unsurprisingly, he commented that he would like to see more kindness and understanding.

“’The quality I would most like to magnify is empathy. It brings us together in a peaceful, loving state,’ he replied.

My Comment: This opinion is obvious, but how can we reach empathy to others, like to our relatives, our children..? – This is what the wisdom of Kabbalah explains!
