49 – On Evolution and Man’s refusal to accept he is a part of it …

Evolution is an ongoing and transformative natural Force. But as all natural Forces, Evolution must have had an induction – something or someone that thrust it on its way. Evolution is intelligent; it not only learns from experience, but it is innately endowed with the capacity to self-reflect and self-create. So when, where, how did Evolution begin? We are a part of it – it is in us, and we are in it – but we have a difficult time accepting this because it is so huge and so ancient.

But there are some Facts proving that Evolution is in us and we are in it:

  • – Evolution is adaptable and innately driven towards complexity.
  • – Evolution is self-generating and self-perpetuating.
  • – Evolution is paradoxical because it destroys in order to create. It consumes energy sources in order to re-generate and perpetuate its ongoing process (as much as we want to disguise it, there is no way to disguise the fact that we consume other forms of Life … though nicely packaged … to regenerate, and perpetuate the evolutionary process of our bodies).
  • – Evolution can be violent, greedy, destructive, cruel, chaotic, and ugly, yet it can also be tender, nurturing, kind, creative, organized, and beautiful.

Evolution is the movement of Life as it flows with a degree of freedom toward higher levels of complexity and order. Life begat movement, and vice versa. Nothing learns to re-create itself with a degree of freedom in adaptation without being alive.

Life is ancient. We are just one of its truly astonishing manifestations. We are just a momentary spark in a process that has been evolving for eons of time and, as everything else in our Universe, will continue to evolve until it comes to an end.

When Charles Darwin was developing his Theory of Evolution, he was afraid of the repercussions of telling us that we descend from simians because he knew he was going to challenge the pillars that sustain our arrogance. And even with all the irrefutable proofs we have today of our animal ancestry, most of us are still fighting it. There is an ingrained stubbornness in us to want to believe that we are what the Universe was created for. This stubbornness is especially strong in men because the awareness of Life’s evolutionary processes in our own bodies is extremely limited – we barely sense it when we see our face reflected in our progeny – women, on the other hand, are keenly aware of Life’s primordial flow because they feel it in the process of procreation – the creation of new Life within their bodies, its development, its struggle, its birth.

Evolution is a Learning Process. It is successful when it reflects on the past to avoid repeating the same mistakes, but it gets into trouble when self-reflection is overridden by reckless greed. This is evident in what is happening to us today: We have lost the capacity to reflect and learn from our own mistakes and those of already extinct civilizations; we have no Vision for our Future other than Unlimited Growth and Unbounded Consumerism.

How do we turn this around? Any ideas?

We have come a long way and accepting the fact that we are, not only part of Nature but Nature itself, will help us understand that we are instruments for change in its evolutionary processes, and that our every action – whether instinctive or premeditated – influences and is influenced by the flow of Evolution.

A consensus of all Nations on a Realistic, Humane, Dynamic, Far-Reaching Vision for Humankind – a Vision that lead us into a World Order rooted on Equilibrium, Knowledge, Self-reflection, and an increasing degree of Freedom in adaptation – is a good and attainable way to start!
