We like to believe that we human beings have accomplished something by recovering from World Wars and making some changes in our world.
We have unified the world!
We have educated the world!
We have connected the people!
We have mechanized our work!
We have …
We have DONE IT! Yay!
I even hear echoes of,
“Everything has been discovered.”
“Everything has been invented.”
And I get this notion that all amazing accomplishments have come about in the last recent few hundred years.
Have we really? What if, our present knowledge is phase two, post the big flood – the one all cultures remember.
What if the Ramayana, Mahabharata, and the Greek mythologies were recorded history? Assuming success while still discovering the past histories, is so premature. Isn’t it?
Who is to decide that all correct historical information is written? Or, written in your or my language.
I think we are fooling ourselves clutching onto what we know or find believable, as the whole truth, nothing but the truth.
For example: There are so many ways to be a parent. Books tell us one, institutions another, cultures a third. Opposition in individual and institutional relationships build on sensation and that continually puzzles people. Assuming we have figured out the best way, we make all these laws and punish people? It seems premature and foolish.
I believe that standardized education has built too many criteria to judge people, judge systems, and judge what we decide is inferior to us. Is this what we have accepted as the pinnacle of human potential?
It is time we start looking for other unique ways to refresh and change, rather than hold onto 21st century standardized. Still waters, I believe, must be headed towards stagnation. At present, these muddied waters, reek of an emerging sick society.
Seek change or accept sick change? Choose.
