• So we evolved to the point where we have consciousness. Every member of our kind posses it, perhaps in various degrees.
  • In various degrees? That seems a bit exaggerated I must say, knowing in advance why you made this ironic assumption.
  • Most of those people are preoccupied with just their basic needs like security, an income, intimate relationships, friends…
  • That is correct, consciousness emerged from an evolutionary stand point for us to be able to adapt and react to the changing environment in order to survive. So this rudimentary behavior it is easily explainable.
  • But gladly, there are adverse, side effects of us having consciousness that actually do not make evolutionary sense at all.
  • You are talking about the inquiry of the state of things, the curiosity and desire to find out and to explain; the fact that we conceived such a thing as a telescope.
  • Yes, despite that our brain mainly evolved in order to make sense of the world at a scale comparable with out bodies, some of us transcended this impediment.
  • But this curiosity driven inquiries that we have conducted had beneficial effects upon the overall population. Because of the fact that we have acquired a deeper understanding of the world around us, we managed to construct air plains, cars, computers in various forms as laptops and mobile phones, medication.
  • That is not all. As an example, with the use of computers we managed to defy our condition, by being able to make calculations on astronomical numbers among others. We are able to intervene now, to influence the state of things; we are no more free falling under natures supervision.
  • Shortlty, we are sophisticated; at least some of us.
  • Maybe this is not the case. Maybe we ended to be capable to develop the telescope in order to see Mars, and with the means of technology to colonize it in the future because earth wouldn’t be a place where living is possible anymore. It was a necessity in the long term.
  • So still, indirectly, in the name of survival… I deny that by repeating my self, saying that we are simply sophisticated.
