Day 39: New technology, the same old patterns

Does technological progress prove that human beings are evolving?
In other words, what type of evolved beings do we want to become?

Inventions and products are all based on human beings. This makes sense since it is built by human beings. Everything that exists had origin in the mind of someone like you and me.
If we look at a computer for instance, it is the exact manifestation of how our mind works in terms of software and programmes that are downloaded, many were already included and will simply be updated throughout time. Just like human beings, we have our DNA and the uploads via education, new languages and other social inputs. Sometimes there is a virus that can manipulate all the activity of the computer and create the caos in other computers of the network, isn’t it?

So if the human mind is consumed and contaminated by the same old thinking, the creation will be the same – of course the materials will change and possibly the size, but the starting point of destruction, competition, greed, control and profit hasn’t changed.

Can our mind distinguish what is beneficial for us and what is destructive?
Enola Gay. By Ted H. Lambert*
If something is done repeatedly as a habit it will be difficult to see things in common sense and putted into perspective...

In 1783 a few men invented the first flying machine, later it developed into airplanes, in 1935 century Sylvia Pankhurst expressed her strong opposition against aerial warfare as a reminder of the danger of future wars and in 1945 the Boeing B-29 was the first aircraft to drop an atomic bomb … Is this the so-called evolution that we should dedicate our intelligence to?

Looking at History, we can easily identify the patterns of money, superiority, inferiority, control, power, degrees of slavery and inequality. Even when the intention is to support our existence here, the idea is soon corroded by the need for survival. 
Each one of us brings a whole baggage of millions of years of human existence accumulated and stored in our DNA, education, books, ways of thinking and traditions. All these patterns have been shaping the human behaviour and until this happen, the outcome of the human action will not change for real.

But do we really need to accept the same old patterns knowing that we have the skills and the potential do create a much better world?

In the end of the day, the human patterns and the human deception are projected into new platforms and inventions:
For instance, amazing computing skills are being applied into terrible products such as “RapeLay”, a video game where women are raped and the players are motivated by revenge.
This game was banned and Japan started to police game makers but the point to look at is the fact that it was developed, there were people working on this project because there was a market and an audience for it. Human beings have to stop themselves from participating is such deceptive thoughts, words and actions.
If we clean our minds of such destructive foundation, there will be space to consider other ways of doing things, that’s for sure.
It is a human responsibility to evolve from such patterns of self-interest and abuse. That is the real evolution, meaning, to change the starting point and the formula of our daily creation. This will consequently change the results on a planetary scale. 

Think about ev-all-u-tion, because what benefits all, will benefit you. An evolution that considers all Life. To create and not destroy; let’s stop creating things that are made to destroy. It is time to use our inventive skills in a totally new direction, instead of investing our brains and creativity in advertisements that simply hide and lie to us everyday.
New technology based on a really new thinking where human development, dignity, health, equality, creativity, discoveries and progress that benefit everyone is the priority. Then everyone can enjoy the amazing creations we are capable of. Life is here to last. We are all born to last.
