Every path needs a leader

Those who do not lead themselves to their summit end up being lead through someone else’s journey.

Evolution of survival

The following is the fundamental idea which lead my change in focus over the last few years and is why I am writing to the aether.

Looking at the evolution of how mankind’s survival has developed over the ages is quite intriguing.

Survival of the fittest is how it all started. Every man/woman fending for themselves or clan: hunting and gathering. With farming, our ancestors have been able to collectively set down their hunting tools and pursue something other than filling our stomachs on a daily basis.

Likewise the industrial revolution saw much of us flock to cities and into factories and provided everyone with more freedom to earn and the energy to pursue ones dreams which lead to advances, and even the creation of many other industries.

All of our advances have allowed us to unite in so many different enterprises which have all lead to the world in which we live in. The have provided us all with the opportunity/illusion that we can be who and what we want to be. Survival rates of just about everything are increasing. We are on the verge of prolonging life eternally, yet we seem to be stuck.

The idea that I am am finding hard to grasp is, why after so so much evolution does the majority of the population still hunt and gather for a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly sallery?

Is this how it has to be? Are we all fulfilling our life’s purpose? Can we do better? How can we all change the status quo?
