Human & Nature

Humans, since time immemorial have tried to tame nature or to tame the nature of humanity.

We have tried to placate nature with the most gruesome human sacrifices and we have tried to control humanity by creating fearsome beliefs in the supernatural.

Whenever we have understood nature and learned to harness it, we have triumphed.
Yet wherever, we create a belief system to suppress humanity we failed and create another that supersedes.

The dichotomy of tribalism in humans is both, strength and weakness, because it offers identity and sense of community, and conversely, it needs to detest the “other” tribe in order for it to survive.

These two key factors dictate how humans behave towards each other:

  • We dictate/ (condone, cajole) behaviour among fellow beings.
  • We instil hatred towards the other.

When will this destructive cycle end?

Surely not by our annihilation!
