These are part of the evidence for asserting that humankind, today, doesn’t adequately comprehend itself. Millions of sems are reported about “human nature”, but there is no significant effort to synergize this information to counter our dangerously false intuitive myths about ourselves that is leading us over the cliff.
One of our most troublesome problems is our deep belief in the primacy of the individual (and/or “consciousness”), as great among the most educated & competent as among everyone – but each with their own diversity We must not give into the MOB, but must UPLIFT scientifically and with spiritual empathy to nu personal competencies in a distribution of diversity where humanity functions as a “whole”, analogous to how our complex bodies/minds function when healthy.
This is our challenge, gifted to us by Gaia, to uplift the emergence of human systems coupled with their created semfields (information liberated from being embedded in matter/energy systems). HUMANITY will emerge as an intricate cyborg between (1) synergized human personal, social, and societal systems and (2) their technological infrastructures and semfields (imagine a radically transformed Internet). This emergent cyborg, humanity, will develop nu, healthy relationships with Gaia (eventually seafing the uplift of Gaia).
That our individual mind/brains are not equipped to work with massive conceptual schemes, “Big Pictures”, or extended time frames is not necessarily a negative, any more than the fact that none of our individual biological cells are omnipotent to do everything. Our attempts to continue imagining the NORMAL human contributes to our difficulty. Our diversity is our strength and potential, but we must better comprehend our diversity and function in terms of this enhanced comprehension.
Of equal parity with our obsession with ourselves (radical individualism) is our lock-in to the transformation paradigm of social/societal change. No amount of perceived failures at reform or “transFORMation” move us to consider alternatives.
[[[Attempting again.]]] For five decades I have been exploring/developing an alternative conceptual scheme I label UPLIFT to Societal Metamorphosis. That this conceptual scheme is “bigger” than the conceptual scheme “Surviving Climate Change”, the findings at the beginning of this essay may explain part of why I have had difficulty sharing this conceptual scheme with others to a level of comprehension that would lead to their being motivated to participate.
