Question: If we analyze the evolution of our desires, almost all scientific discoveries were made in the middle of the last century, and recently we have not revealed anything new. From the mid-20th century until the crisis in 2008, the desire for wealth began to develop again. The cycle repeated.
Does this mean that the next development of desires will not lead to wealth, but to power? And then back to knowledge? Or is it not a cyclical process?
Answer: I don’t think it will happen again. I want to believe that this will not happen.
I hope that we will begin to develop at the next level of the cycle, striving to understand what is driving us forward. We will want to understand the common universal law of nature, which leads us to embrace all of nature in the volume in which we can feel it today and in the volume in which it actually exists—hidden from us.
I believe that the actions of nature over us, such as the coronavirus and other problems that it will bring to us, are precisely global problems: droughts, hurricanes, swarms of locusts, etc. They will work over the entire globe, and humanity will have no time to engage in power or anything else. It will look for how to survive! This is the most important thing.
We see a small coronavirus has arrived, and what has it done? Nothing wrong. A small number of people died, less than the number of people who usually die when we were not sitting at home, but were working, walking the streets, and running to different places.
Therefore, we cannot say that the coronavirus threatens the extermination of humanity and that something totally terrible and threatening is happening.
But look at how it changed the world, the nature of society; how people calmed down, the air and water cleared, and the climate became a little different. We see how much nature needs us to stop using our dirty, crass hands to get into its structure
