Our Crazy World 20102019
My very personal thoughts on the world we have inherited for our use.
This time in English for no obvious reason.
As I see it our world is becoming more and more absolute but yet full of contradictions
Lightning fast communication makes our world smaller, not bigger.
And we start more and more living in a world of absolutes.
Strongly opinionated dogmatic minority groups try to impose their absolute views on the silent majority by often physical public actions.
Thus, by way of the Renaissance, the epoch of rationality after the Middle Ages with their mystic and absolute belief (at least in Europe) we have arrived at a cross roads, one leading to far advanced purely scientfic research, the other to postscientific absolute belief where not evidence but feeling or the majority of votes determines what is fact or nonfact.
Public space is for all but paradoxically does not allow for any intrusion into our private part of it.
Moral right is absolute right
Which means that everything else is unacceptable.
For everything else would be immoral and so wrong.
So moral right has in fact the same value as religion which is also absolute truth based not on evidence but on belief.
Science and scholarship
We do not derive our knowledge from personal observation but from belief in the personal experience of our ancestors and their history which is embedded in our dna.
Thus each of us is unique and different and our dna defines who we are to the exclusion of all others.
Equal rights does not mean equal opportunities
But the existence of rights does imply the existence of duties as well.
Things and concepts exist because their opposites exist.
Evolution is a series of unfortunate faults in reproduction which lead to new species able to face the developments in the building of the world.
Man’s intelligence contains his own potential destruction.
Reproduction at higher speed than nature’s recovery allows, by better food better medication and better control of nature, will lead to the eventual destruction of nature and consequently of Mankind.
But, as always these are merely the most personal reminiscences of a simple layman unhampered by controlling computer models.
