Let's say there was a time of Eden in the past of consciousness of the human species:
Humanity was One with the world around and within it; nature nurtured and Loved all.
Innocence? Naivety? Ignorance? Whatever.
Alas, behold the
gift/curse of analysis:
The heavens and the earth separated, and the human was left naked, torn between the forces.
The human was left painfully self-conscious.
There were men and women; shamans and magicians, priests and prophets who tried to grasp the sky with one hand while clinging to earth firmly.
They tried to regain what was lost - and often succeeded.
Although many times fearfully looking up the sky and hoping it won't fall down, ordinary folk often succeeded too - living a happy and fulfilled life is no small feat.
In modern times, the sky looks more and more menacing: time has sped up and life itself is tearing us apart.
We are using and abusing the combined gifts of analysis and ignorance more than ever.
We have developed a thing called 'technology' and invented a thing called 'information'. We are trying to create a thing called 'true artificial intelligence'.
But, we are also scared shitless.
We are holding a fearsome magnifying glass, a mirror of our own intelligence/existence.
We are creating something from nothing - ourselves.
While the human form has great history; a great sea of unconsciousness that supports our glimpse of self-awareness, the digital/informational form is an additional layer of intelligence that starts from scratch.
All is visible and there's nothing to relate to.
How shall we integrate the flow of intelligence?
