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 got it on its way. Evolution is Intelligent … it learns from experience … and because it came innately endowed with the Capacity to Self-reflect and Self-create … to look back on itself and learn from the past … it cannot have been Unplanned. So when or where or how did Evolution begin? We are a part of it, yet because it is so huge, and so ancient, and so encompassing, we may never be able to know.

But since we are one of its creations there are some Facts we may deduct:

  • The Force of Evolution is adaptable and innately driven towards complexity.
  • The Force of Evolution is Self-generating and Self-perpetuating.
  • The Force of Evolution is paradoxical: It must create by destroying. It must guzzle up energy sources to feed and re-generate and perpetuate its ongoing process. As much as we want to disguise it, we kill and eat other forms of Life … though nicely packaged … to feed and regenerate and perpetuate the evolutionary process in our own bodies.
  • The Force of Evolution can be Violent, and Destructive, and Cruel, and Chaotic, and Ugly, yet it can also be Tender, and Kind, and Creative, and Organized, and Beautiful.

The Force of Evolution is the movement of Life as it flows toward higher levels of Complexity and Order. So whenever or wherever movement toward Change begun, Life begun, or vice versa. Nothing learns to change and re-create itself with a relative degree of freedom in adaptation without being Alive.

Life is ancient. We are just one of its truly astonishing and highly complex manifestations. We are just a momentary spark in an evolutionary process that has been ongoing for billions of years and that will continue, as everything else in our Universe, until it comes to an end. So who are we to define what Life is, and when it begins and ends?

When Charles Darwin was developing his Theory of Evolution, he was afraid of the repercussions of his discovery because he knew he was going to challenge the pillars that sustain our arrogance. And with all the irrefutable proofs we have today of our own evolutionary process and animal ancestry, most of us are still fighting it. There is an ingrained stubbornness in us to want to believe, against irrefutable evidence, that we are what the Universe was created for. This stubbornness is especially strong in men because our awareness of Life’s evolutionary process 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 more aware of  Life’s primordial flow within their bodies because they strongly feel it in the process of Procreation … the creation of new Life within their bodies, its nurturing, its struggle, its birth …

Mammalian Life made transformative leaps in the evolutionary process when we were able to move out of the water and when we were able to thrive with the demise of the dinosaurs. And at the level of the Human Species, Life’s evolutionary process has made and continues to make transformative leaps; as when we were first able to walk erect and free our hands, when we were able to invent and roll the wheel, when we were able to put our language in writing, when we were able to print books and spread knowledge, when we were able to live longer with the invention of Medicine, when we were able to look at the stars and galaxies with the telescope, when we were able to move faster from place to place with the invention of mechanized transport, when we were able to see peoples of the world on television, when we were able to communicate with the entire world through computers.

Evolution is a Learning Process. It is successful when it reflects on the past and avoids repeating the same mistakes; it gets into trouble when Self-reflection is overridden by the chaotic causes of reckless power. This is what is happening to us today: We have lost the capacity to Self-reflect and learn from our own mistakes and the mistakes of already extinct civilizations; we have no Vision for our own Future other than Unlimited Growth and Unbounded Consumerism amidst an environment with limited and dwindling resources.

Like a human being with no direction in Life and assailed by ignorance and hate, Humanity is running blind driven by greed and divisiveness.

How do we turn this around? Any ideas?

A consensus of all Nations on a Realistic, Humane, Dynamic and Far-Reaching Vision for Humankind … a Vision that would lead us, not into War and Hate, but into a New World Order rooted on Equilibrium and Knowledge and Self-reflection and an increasing degree of Freedom in adaptation … could be a good and attainable way to start!

We have come a long way and are slowly beginning to understand that we are instruments for change in Life’s evolutionary process and that our every action – whether instinctive or premeditated – influences and is influenced by the flow of Evolution.
