38 – We are facing a Crisis as Humanity has never faced before …

Our most fundamental function, although we do it mostly unconsciously, is the constant transformation of energy into mass and mass into energy. We cease to exist when we can no longer do it. As organic systems, we require a steady supply of energy sources … oxygen from the air, nutrients from food … to fuel our development, growth, motion, existence, and are therefore totally dependent on the environment.

It is the same with the species as a whole.

The most fundamental function of the human species, although it is mostly imperceptible from individual experience, is the constant transformation of energy into mass and mass into energy. The species will not exist without a steady supply of energy sources and is therefore totally dependent on the environment that provides them. But although this is incontrovertible, we continue to perceive ourselves as independent from Nature.

We are stuck in a Paradigm that discourages our capacity to introspect about what we are in the scheme of the natural world, while encouraging instead the destructiveness, cruelty, divisiveness, and irrationality of our economic and religious doctrines … my ‘god’ is the true god, the measure of my success is how much more than others I can consume. These doctrines lead us to negate the devastating impact we are inflicting with our constant conflict and exponential growth on the environment that allows us to exist.

It took us eons of time to evolve the skeletal structure to stand erect; it took us millennia to become aware of our own awareness and start making tentative conjectures about Reality; it took us centuries before we could accept the fact that it is our planet that circles the sun. These facts undeniably demonstrate our capacity to alter the way we are and the way we perceive Reality, and yet, although intellectually we know we are just one manifestation of Life’s evolving processes, emotionally we still think that we are Life’s zenith.

Life is primeval, self-generating, self-perpetuating; it is the transformative Force that, in symbiosis with environments, experiments with myriad manifestations of existence … of which we are one … implanting everything with the urge to adapt and self-generate, so it can perpetuate itself into greater complexity.

Unlike any other creature we know of, we can purposefully fashion our neuronal connections through sensory perception from our internal and external environments: This is how we have developed the highest capacity we know of for introspection and rational thinking; it is how we can conceptualize the possibilities of the human potential; it is how we are capable to comprehend the clear signs of a species in crisis; it is how we can foresee the impending and life-threatening changes we are bringing about. But we are not encouraged to reflect upon these facts because they threaten the domination of irrational beliefs and an unsustainable economic doctrine.

As we incorporate and transform substances from the environment to substantiate our development, our exponential growth is dramatically changing the chemical composition of the planet’s atmosphere.  It is thus we are facing a crisis as Humanity has never faced before: Like a human being who is unable to accept the devastating impact of destructive excesses on his/her own body, the negation of the impact of our destructive paradigm has taken us to a point where we are irreversibly tipping the equilibrium of the narrow planetary band in which we can exist.

If we are unable to overthrow the domination of our dark, irrational, and destructive Paradigm, we will lose the amazing opportunity of delving into the knowledge that we are the creation, and co-creators, of a Primeval Order that not only builds our self-generating bodies out of microscopic cells … step by step, deftly, thoughtfully … but endows us with a mind that can discern that Order, and affect it.

Share the knowledge.
