Currently civilization is poised for another cultural upheaval. Recent revisions in science are profoundly revising four flawed “truths” upon which our culture is built. I refer to these old beliefs as the Four Myth-Perceptions of the Apocalypse, misperceptions that are contributing to the demise of our civilization (More is in “Spontaneous Evolution”).
Myth-Perception 1 – Biology is controlled by matter-based Newtonian mechanics [Revision- Biology is controlled by invisible Quantum mechanical forces]
Myth-Perception 2 – Genes control life [Revision- The new science of epigenetics reveals that environment controls genes]
Myth-Perception 3 – “Survival of the fittest” drives evolution [Revision- Cooperation drives evolution]
Myth-Perception 4 – Evolution is a Random Process [Revision- Organisms evolve to conform to environment]
When these fundamentally new scientific insights replace our currently limiting cultural myths, the ashes of our current civilization will give rise to a more magnificent version of the human Phoenix.
Refer to yesterday’s post: Does human civilization resemble the fate of the Phoenix?
