50 – On Evolution (Part II) …
It is incredible to realize our capacity to understand complex issues … to have deciphered the code of the DNA Helix, to have figured out the exact distance to Saturn so we can send little cameras to be captured into stationary orbits and send us back images of the planet, to have figured out that our Solar System is a tiny element in one of the arms of an immense Galaxy, to have opened a window to the world through little screens we can hold in the palm of our hands … and yet we don’t’ understand, nor question, the reason why politicians and religious leaders blatantly lie to us with empty promises of Fairness, Justice, Freedom and Happiness.
Their lies are oftentimes so outlandish that they would be laughable if they were not murderous. They lie to keep us on a destructive path that only serves their insatiable greed completely disregarding the horrible consequences of their obscene egotism … War, Siege, Genocide, Divisiveness, Ignorance, Hate, Poverty, Cruelty, Rape, Starvation …
They use the colossal force of our Hope to deceive us and manipulate us into Conformity. They obscure their contempt for us, and for the Natural World, behind promises they never plan to Honor. Their horrific crimes are absolved by their exclusive “elitist” rights. They aim to obliterate Knowledge by bending the young mind into blind Obedience.
But the Force of our Evolution is bigger and wiser than they are. Although the control of current religious and political doctrines has lasted for many centuries, new technologies are awakening in us the awareness of our capacities to effect change and to begin to see the possibilities of a world without their unrestrained greed. They have the arms and the wealth to try to control us and infiltrate our endeavors to attain Freedom and Fairness, but we have the power of our sheer numbers … billions of us … and non-violence disarms and terrifies them.
Evolution, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary is: 1 – the process by which different kinds of living organisms develop from earlier forms, 2 – gradual development.
Evolution is Continuous Movement, and Movement is Change. Nothing is static in Nature. We are slowly evolving into more interconnected and informed Human Beings. This liberating advance in our evolutionary process threatens the control of the massive religious and multi-national corporations, and this is why they try to restrain it.
Evolution is a Primordial Force that takes us through a gradual and learning process into greater levels of Complexity and Order. Natural Systems … our bodies, our species, our planetary system, our galaxy … evolve from creation to dissipation in stages that are sometimes measured and sometimes accelerated by unexpected events. If the System is successful, each stage is an improvement on previous stages. And once a Stable and Efficient stage is reached, a temporary period of steady development is entered where the System may devote its energy to increasing its complexity. But because the System is vulnerable to external and internal fluctuations, its stability is eventually challenged. The System is then forced to overcome or to be overcome by the challenge.
These challenges are the fuel of Evolution. They create instability and prod the System to find novel ways to adapt. The System is forced … either instinctively or by its own determination … to re-value, to re-consider its development. If the System is able to overcome the challenge, it then re-structures itself to adapt to a new and usually greater level of complexity. But if it doesn’t, the System either goes into a ‘dark age’ … a critical stage of struggling to survive … or it might disappear altogether.
We are entering such a stage in our Evolution: We have grown to unsustainable numbers and are overwhelming the environment in which our lives totally depend. But the individuals making the decisions for us, instead of addressing the urgency of the Crisis, intensify it by stubbornly persisting on perpetuating an untenable economic doctrine of unbounded consumerism and perpetual growth. They don’t know what they are doing or care only for what they believe is best for them, but either way they are promoting a recipe for disaster.
We must start making the decisions for our Future because in their obscene greed and ignorance they are devastating it.
I believe that for us to overcome this Crisis and step up to the next level in our evolutionary process … to a higher and more rational level of Complexity and Order … our challenge is to leave behind this primitive World Order dominated by Lies and Deceit and Destruction and Cruelty and Ignorance, and enter a New World Order based on Peace, and Creativity, and Education for All, and Equilibrium between Growth and Natural Resources, and freedom of religion without inciting division, and advances in technology and health available to every child in the world.
We are not helpless – we are pure Potential.
