When The Engine Goes Haywire

Dr. Michael LaitmanToday we discover that all the problems lie in our ego. Evidently, if we change, upgrade it, in so doing we will rise to the next degree.

In essence, this is the path human development always takes: Initially each new phase seems to be something wonderful, bright, convenient, and progressive. Each shift of social formations promises a new, beautiful life. And then, after we’ve gotten acquainted with yet another formation, having lived in it for a while, we discover that it’s not quite so wonderful. Subsequent development reveals negative sensations, facts,and states. And although we keep advancing, all the negatives keep accumulating, and at a certain point we can no longer bear it.

Then, for want of any other option, revolutions erupt, wars are waged, or we manage to come to an understanding and achieve great changes at the bifurcation, that is, breakthrough point. Thus we are transformed, arriving at new values and a new life philosophy, and starting development at the next phase.

Evidently, today we stand before one such transition. The former state has become a negative one, and we see its problem, our ego, which demolishes all our foundations. Not one of the elements from our former life is working. And this clearly means that our today’s nature demands change.

Herein lies the uniqueness of our new state. After all, never before have we changed human nature. Each time we have simply shifted onto a higher degree of development, like switching gears to accelerate. But now that we’ve reached the fifth gear and are going at max speed, the engine has suddenly gone haywire. And we can’t keep driving further with it anymore.

Accordingly, we must change the paradigm, the values, the goal, the fuel, the engine itself. This is what makes our current situation and the new period we’re entering special.

We must change human nature, this egoistic engine which has always pushed us to develop, consume, feel, understand, and discover something new. Today it doesn’t work anymore, it cannot drive us forward. And that is why we must change the natural force of development.

Unification Is Always Beneficial

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from Scientific American): “Human populations have faced bottlenecks over time that put them in peril. Evolutionary biologist Mark Pagel believes that humans overcame these forces by banding together in larger groups, which may have propelled their brain capacity to greater heights.

“In Wired for Culture, Pagel proposes that humans learn best through imitation. Aggregating into larger clusters allowed social learning to truly flourish, ultimately leading to the formation of societies, technology and culture.

“Humans are unique among other primates, however, in that they did more than simply pick up the latest spear technology by observing and mimicking their peers. As they developed more complex communication skills, they were able to adapt and pass on these tactics to the next generation.

“Yet this collaborative spirit did not extend to make humans altruistic, Pagel concludes. As a species, we join forces only with those whom we trust and whose actions we anticipate will be similar to our own. In fact, he proposes that thousands of different languages exist in the world because we are inclined to promote trust within our own social circles but confusion among outsiders. Language allowed us to pass along individual cultures as much as it segregated, and even protected, us from different ones.”

My Comment: That’s why today, because of the integrality of the world community, there is a need for a single language and culture. But in any case, unification led to evolutionary development, both quantitative and qualitative.
