Humanity feels itself as living in a certain space. What we exist within, we call our world. This is the surrounding nature, its inanimate, vegetative, animate levels, and humans.
Our world is governed in some way and lives according to its own laws. We study these laws and try to find some connection between them, how they affect us, how we can affect them, the properties of nature, and how to subjugate nature to make it profitable and comfortable for us to exist in this world.
As a result of our development, which has lasted many thousands of years on Earth, we come to the conclusion that we still know little about our world because events that we cannot predict take place in it and there are forces we cannot control. They affect us in a terrible way, scare us, and put us in situations that make us feel small, petty, and miserable.
Despite the achievements of science, we do not know when there will be an earthquake or a hurricane and what their impact might be. In general, there are enormous forces of nature that are developing, causing us great trouble, and we can do nothing about it.
We can do nothing with our lives, we cannot create a good society, correct interactions between spouses, children, and parents. We can do nothing about the fact that we are limited in our life, weak in the face of nature, in the face of ourselves. We are helpless in the face of life and death, and we find this very depressing. Subconsciously it humiliates us.
In general, we live in a world we know nothing about.
Question: Are there certain algorithms that nature develops us through, but we do not know them?
Answer: Even if we knew them a little and we gradually came to know them, it would not help us in governing. Humanity’s development leads only to the fact that we somehow protect ourselves from nature’s negative influences, but nothing more.
A person finds himself existing in the system of forces that govern him at all levels. We can do nothing in the field of economics, family relationships, relationships of state, or in the sphere of ecology, in anything. It is in our era, when we have achieved such prosperity, such strength, and such understanding of nature, that we only become convinced that we are very weak and do not know it.
