The Future is safe

We as humans are subject to only insights, perceptions or cognitions.  We are constantly fighting for truths of interpretation and cannot take any responsibility for different opinions. Our cognitive intelligence – in the vast majority of cases – is simply too irrelevant to integrate different opinions into our world view. Because of this reason, the world we create is often situated at the lowest level of cognitive possibilities. This concerns our political leaders and at the same time their oppositional rivals.

The true and neutral analysis of social structures requires both – emotionally and politically independent observers. Only then will it be possible to shape the future in a relevant way. Fortunately, in the one-way streets of political developments – when current intelligences reach their intellectual limits – something like a new cognitive horizon always emerges – a new wise way of shaping society.

This means that even if societies reach their cognitive limits, something new will always emerge from the deepest hopelessness and a state of uninspired emptiness. Just think of the young Google or the first Mercedes car in times that were confronted with uncountable challenges. Suddenly people were able to start to find answers in almost no time or to transport goods to the even farthest locations in a fraction of time. Evolution is not stoppable by totalitarism, ideology or stupidity.

So – we don’t have to be afraid of the great stupidity. We do not have to be afraid of untalented thinkers and low-intelligent governments. We can always trust in the future. The future is always safe and certain. It has been safe for 2.8 million years now – since humans created the first hand axe – and it will continue to be safe in the future.
