Has the agricultural revolution really made life easier? Since 10,000 BCE we have lived in the aftermath of this revolution. Humans existed 3,000,000 years ago, they were hunter gatherer. It wasn’t this stressful, there were no laws, no states, no oppressor nor oppressors, no slave master, no manager and managed and no class division. There were also different cultures that existed, and even if they were aware of each others existence were in no need to change one another. Why do we understand the agricultural revolution to the pinnacle revolution of human society? How did all these cultures become folly to this revolution? Remember Cain (the farmer) killed his brother (the hunter). From another perspective, evolution is completely against “singleness”, and humans are also subject to that law of evolution.
The world will not be saved by old minds with new programs. If the world is saved, it will be saved by new minds—with no programs. This is what Einstein meant when he said, "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Minds = Vision, and vision is the flowing river. Programs are sticks set in the riverbed to impede the flow. The Industrial Revolution was a flowing river. It needed no programs to get it going or to keep it going.
The people of our culture are tremendous bullet-biters. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this idiom, ‘biting the bullet’ supposedly helps one tolerate pain. It is for this reason we work long hours day on end, but never get the outstanding results we desire, we don't spend enough time with family, we even have one eye on the email just before we fall asleep, and we consider this part of our destiny and bite the bullet.
