- We rule the world because we are the only animal that can believe in things that exist purely in our own imagination, such as gods, states, money and human rights. …
- Sapiens will soon disappear. With the help of novel technologies, within a few centuries or even decades, Sapiens will upgrade themselves into completely different beings, enjoying godlike qualities and abilities. History began when humans invented gods – and will end when humans become gods (Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari).
Question: Are we becoming extinct as Homo Sapiens?
Answer: No, we are moving from one stage of development to the next one. And we cannot understand this transition process.
Everything that is happening in the world seems irrational. That is, it happens rationally, but according to the new rational plan and we have nothing to do with it yet, we do not see it as what it is. We participate in it and it seems to us irrational, somewhat inconceivable, and we do not know how to live with it.
Our mind is not suited to new relationships, to the things that are happening. It is like we are given another degree of development, but we have not matured for it yet. We do not understand it.
Question: Does it mean that we are in a gap between the degrees?
Answer: This is always the case.
Comment: And all the irrationality, lack of logic of all these wars, and events…
My Response: Well, what can you do if we are not adjusted to them yet? We need to rise to this degree.
Question: Where are these events pushing us, in principle? If the next moment is irrational, and the next one is also irrational, can it be that someone will reach for the nuclear button?
Answer: It is not about a nuclear button. These events are going to make us recognize the real world we inhabit today. This world is not about a nuclear button, and it does not matter whether we will be saved from it or not.
This is a completely new world, with new goals, with new attitudes to it. Therefore it requires new people, which we must become. But do we understand this? We do not understand yet. Are we aware of this? We are not aware. Are we ready for this? No. Do we want this? Likewise, no.
And it turns out that here we have four degrees of development toward a new degree.
Question: Are you saying that now the world nevertheless needs to produce new leaders?
Answer: Leaders, of course. There should be certain preparations in society for the fact that we need this. And then rudiments of a new leadership, understanding, awareness, teaching, and teachers will appear.
Questions: In any case, should there be suitable people for these leaders?
Answer: Yes. There must be people who will accept them and elect them. In principle, we have a good future ahead of us. Ahead of all of us. There will be another circle, another reincarnation. It will be better next time.
Comment: There is no great humanism in all this.
My Response: Only if you cannot see. When a small child is punished, he also believes that his parents are monsters.
Comment: Does it mean that we need to turn on “other brains” after all?
My Response: This is called “phase transition to the next degree.” In the end, everything is for the best. Only that we have to mature for this best.
