Evolutionary Baggage

Play Video

As a father to two teenaged boys, I decided long ago to teach the lessons of the world to them from two different and distinct perspectives.  As an example, whenever I show them anything, I ask them two things:

  1. What do you see?
  2. What is its origin?

The first question is universally simple.  All 8 billion human beings alive right now can easily describe what they see.  But the second question here, what is it’s origin, is extremely difficult.  That’s why I pose it.  All viewers either do that already, or you will one day.   I want my two sons to go beyond describing what they see, to being able to explain the origin of all things.

Never mind the social disasters we see in front of us.  What are the invisible evolutionary components that causevthem? And why?  Everyone SEES the same thing, but almost no one UNDERSTANDS what they’re seeing.  And that’s fine, except when it now poses a clear danger to the very survival of a paralyzed, frightened and blameless humanity.


I speak now for all human beings alive on Planet Earth.  Our species has reached an existential curve in the road.  At this juncture in human evolution, right now, all 8 billion of us have arrived together to a place that feels and looks far less promising as we were taught to believe.  You don’t need me or Noesis to tell you that.  We’re not here to tell you what you know so well.

You need us to tell you this.

Humans learn more about our universe in one month than we learned in the last century.  We’ve learned everything we can get our hands on, from the geology of the Earth we live on, to the discovery of almost 10000 exo-planets that orbit distant stars.  We’ll be able to be deduce life on distant planets anytime now, perhaps a decade or two.  The wonder of our existence on Earth will likely occur to us, just in time for our species to clock out.   Why?  We know everything about everything, but we know essentially NOTHING about ourselves.

Our unwillingness to even get a glimpse of who we are has only Oblivion as a destination.    Because Noesis says so??   No?  We don’t understand what is now knowable, the many evolutionary components that combine to make us whole.  That reality places our species adrift.

Noesis isn’t here to speculate on the end of Humanity.  We’re here to warn of the mathematical certainty of what need not be.  If so, I also justified the very reason why Noesis MUST EXIST. The current human trajectory, while accelerating, is also derailing.  You know it.

Noesis doesn’t exist to call it as we see it.  Everyone does that.  We’re here to forestall what need not be, and the information is there.

About this Video:

In this video, we quantify the totality of evolutionary influence upon modern day behavior.  We can easily understand the general idea that all modern day behaviors have evolutionary triggers.  We now need to consider the IMMENSITY of that influence.  We tell ourselves that we’re each born as a “blank slate”.   An inconvenient fact must intrude on that interpretation.  Humans are in fact saddled with 200,000 prior generations of ancient ancestors that came before us.  It’s our ownership and not our denial that will allow sustainability.  Only a being that understands itself in great detail can plot its next point of arrival, and then create a vehicle of education that would best ensure our arrival to sustainability.
