I've been thinking about life and mankind and where we are as a species. I'm not sure if this is the right board for this thread, but here are a few of my thoughts. I imagine the human race to still be children learning how to live effectively. We have various religions, and philosophies that attempt to help us grow, but until we look at life itself, and remove ourselves from our fantasy worlds, I'm not sure we will ever grow past superstition. For me, the goal is to coexist peacefully with all living things and/or to be caretakers over the earth. The question is how? What will it take for mankind to grow up? Life can be harsh, and we often times disconnect ourselves from what we need most, "reality". With that being said, how do you propose we go about growing past our destructive natures. How do we change our world. What would be the best, most effective way to change our world for the better? Can we solve the worlds problems, or are we destined to remain as we are?
