Future civilisations are going to be looking back on Earth is its current state, and assessing our greatest technological advances and immortalising those who divided and conquered. Why are all our most memorable stories of ancient times about Heroes who won wars and Kings who ruled over troubled times? On the other end of the spectrum you have great peacekeepers who entered the world of martyrdom for the sake of their revolutionary aspirations.
What happens when we get an Avatar who is versed in spiritual war, aims to introduce a revolutionary model of peaceful existence, and seeks nothing but freedom from corporate enslavement? You get a formula that deconstructs society’s very notion of existence itself. If we removed religious and financial motivation from our evolutionary model, we would be treading ground never seen for thousands of years when all our Heroes and mythological figures flourished.
The moment humanity stops thinking of itself as a business model and starts understanding it is an evolving organism, is the moment in time it stops taking a detour through personal and spiritual corruption. There is a single catalyst that would spark such a domino reaction– a significant motivation stronger than money. Something we value more than our own survival; Knowledge, Truth, Love, Pleasure. Take your pick.
Right now money seems to be facilitating all of this. Even the most avid spiritual practitioners will determine how successful you are as a human being, by how much money you make playing Monopoly. When our level of significance changes to something our soul craves, our lives become something worth living for, as opposed to something worth being enslaved for.
