    A slowly dawning Awareness that we Are members of A LArger group
    Project: Polytopia









    Human history can be viewed as a slowly dawning awareness that we are members of a larger group.Initially our loyalties were to ourselves and our immediate family, next, to bands of wandering hunter-gatherers, then to tribes, small settlements, city-states, nations. We have broadened the circle of those we love. We have now organized what are modestly described as super-powers, which include groups of people from divergent ethnic and cultural backgrounds working in some sense together — surely a humanizing and character building experience.

    If we are to survive, our loyalties must be broadened further, to include the whole human community, the entire planet Earth.

    Many of those who run the nations will find this idea unpleasant. They will fear the loss of power. We will hear much about treason and disloyalty. Rich nation-states will have to share their wealth with poor ones. But the choice, as H. G. Wells once said in a different context, is clearly the universe or nothing.

    with respect to the idea in the quote, I would like to suggest that enlarging the circle isn't the future I am looking towards. In fact, it isn't a matter of present past or future. We need to break through the tought of a perimeter defining our sense of who we are. We need to become the thinking intelligently emoting specie that leaves behind the 'group' bonding concept and embrace ourselves as non allianeting intelligent beings. But i will support the banishing of nation based order:)

    thanks Fast T for your remark. it sure pour some light on the impossible possibility of change.
    I would like to add that the task of - "to break through the tought of a perimeter defining our sense of who we are" - demands, as i see it, such a shuffle in the Image of Man, such a transformation in the way we "read" ourselves, that we should never know where it might come from ....
    We might not exclude also the possibility that out of a constant motion of enlarging the scales a non-linear state will be awakened. May new panoramas bring upon totally new perspectives, new perspectives liberate the old sense of "who we are", so that a turning point in the life of the known "image" will yield in the appearance of something actually unpredictable? ...
    I can find some naivete in this description.. -)) but it 's worth dreaming ..
