The Bible separates man from nature.
Wake up. Have the humility to work with nature and the world, not against. Humans are brilliant, but we shouldn’t be under the illusion that we are the masters. And remember that it is by cooperating that we have survived, even when we compete. Imagine what would happen to the world if faced with a much deadlier pandemic or an immediate climate crisis? The Coronavirus is sounding the alarm bell for the planet to wake up and cooperate. We are experiencing firsthand how interconnected we all are - one big family on the same earth. Humans have separated from nature and the world (god in the image of the human, science all knowing) - we are now faced with recognizing that the whole is bigger than us, and having to reconnect with our environment and with each other as one, as part of a larger, continuous stream.
Humans have found endless ways to dance with nature, sometimes giving the impression that they lead, but let us remember: its nature’s dance.
Don't try to stop the wave of regression and rolling back progress. Look beyond. Just like you can't stop winter, but you can prepare for spring.
Are gene editing and artificial intelligence augmenting humans the path of natural evolution?
All is Biological. All is Nature: we are, the universe, all species, all technology and inventions. Even algorithms - they come from somewhere and live somewhere - in our case from our biological brains to living on our hardware and software, or any new platforms that will follow.Nature is a protagonist in every chapter of the book of life It is with nature that you turn the pages of the chapters of life.Life is to be experienced - hard to put in words. It comes from nature.
Is the future going to be artificial and algorithms-based or biological and natural ? The answer is probably that it needs to be the combination of both.
Solutions to humanity’s great challenges need to be human - that means emotional, cultural, philosophical and moral, not just technical, even if technology is used to address them.
Where do we go after western modernism - beyond the all tech world we are headed towards? What is the life of humans? How do we marry humans, technology and nature ? In both children and in older people, we see our fundamental roots in us humans: our basic physical and emotional needs.
When natural disasters occur it is interesting that the concerns are mostly about human made structures, forgetting the damage to natural beauty which is often irreplaceable. Humans need non digital stimuli- those that come with experiencing and feeling with one's senses without electronic help.
Human experiences are still about the physical world and people not just digital experiences - survival is about the physical not the digital.
To help the planet start with fixing humans. Humans have worshiped and found meaning first in nature, then God and rituals, and now in technology as our ultimate mastery of the world. Where from here, when technology questions the future role of humans and who the master is ? In 20 years assume most children will be created in vitro. How do feel about that? Your children will be healthier and more intelligent but less natural in the sense of (less) undisturbed biology
It took a long time for humans to make nature work for them - now the challenge is to not forget where we came from.
In antiquity man and animals were combined - now again man and others - machines - are combined.
We have had crises and chaos in the past, but this is the first time in human history that we may have created one that will escape our control, like climate.
Don’t judge too fast... all humans have qualities if you make the effort to see them, and all have failings. That is our nature.
