What is the next stage of human evolution?

Quest9184  What is the next stage of human evolution?  20181227

The following two ideas may help us to see the coming of the next stage.


We are not the ones we can see on the mirrors. We are not young and old faces on the mirrors. All that you can see from a mirror is but images. The real thing is not here for our external eye to see. The real thing is what we have done.

Anything seen from the mirror is perishable. But the deeds you have done are not. Deeds were real and  not perishable. As deeds are the real essence of a thing, we call it human kind. It is not known whether human kind is perishable too. We cannot foresee the outcome of human kind, but anyone could see the outcome of a single body. It is perishable and would be gone sooner or later. But all deeds would remain a reality to constitute the total effect of human beings on the planet.

By the term perishable” we meant decomposable. Materials will not be gone. They remain in the planet. And the planet remains in the Universe. We shall all be decomposed, but our deeds will not. All deeds are composing into something. You must have done something in the years of your life. They are eternal.

If we start a war, the effect of the war is not perishable, though we are. We will be decomposed, yet the deeds we had done will be composing, it will grow up into something. The meaning of the war is not to win or lose, but that it has a force to push ahead something, and that is not for the war starter to foresee.

Every deed is not perishable. If you smile to someone, the smile will not be decomposed.  It could be forgettable, but not perishable. The warmth of the smile is eternal. The temperature of the Universe is changed by this warmth.

In this sense, the unlimited pursue for earthily happiness is meaningless. One can never drink or eat endlessly. Happiness lies in the creation of deeds. Do something and you will be happy. When we feel that one day, we are feeble and weak, knowing that we are going to be perished, we may still aware that the deeds had already carried our souls into the future. That, is a simple reality, and that is the needed understanding we need to have. If we are agreed on this simple idea, we will see what we are and know where we are.    


All the wars and human efforts in history were of one purpose only.

It is to find a better way to organize us human beings into a total body.

It may be the next stage of our evolution. We shall grow from individuals into a total being.

Now we are mostly separated and not connected. We were all like sands in the beach. Every one cares about himself more than others. You are a perfect individual, yet you are a sand. Some of the lucky ones would have the protection of a family, while the country would produce some external care for you. And there is a very limited help any country can produce. Anyone cannot avoid the nightmare of loneliness.

The real question is can we organize ourselves into a whole body like a big tree? Everyone is one part of the tree of life? Then we can produce a better effort for our planet.

We call our organization a “country”.

Some would argue that one kind of country system is better than the other. And sometimes it is the needed pretext for a war. If you are not democratic enough, you may expect a strike from your enemy, yet some of the fierce despots were under protection of the most democratic presidents.

If we can look back from one hundred thousand years later, we shall find it funny. Most of our organized countries were but external constructions only.  We were bits and bricks put together to form a country. We are not leaves and roots to live” in a tree. That means we are not a total life. Our country is not a living thing. It’s only a lifeless structure. We are put together externally to live in a place we call our country. The country will not care much about you. The country is more or less like a big commercial organization.

Why do we need a better organizing method to organize our countries?

Human wisdom was wasted in an external form of government construction.

If we can be organically organized, we shall achieve much more than now.  

This could be the next stage of human evolution. We will be evolved into a whole body, to handle all our future adventures.
