The Laws of Nature and the Meaning of Life

HUMAN BEINGS DO NOT STAND OUTSIDE NATURE; we are a part of it. Ultimately we are made of particles, evolving and interacting according to the laws of physics. And we know what those laws are — the progress of modern science has reached a point where the laws underlying everyday life are completely understood. This understanding lets us draw strong conclusions about the milieu in which we live. There is no telekinesis, astrology, or life after death. What does this mean for our understanding of consciousness, free will, and the meaning of life? Taking the laws of nature seriously opens a vista of possibility, freeing us from outmoded ideas about what it means to be human.

Protams, mūsu izglītības sistēmas mūs nesagatavo saprātīgai un veiksmīgai dzīvei. Pēdējos 20 gados mūsu zināšanas par mūsu izcelsmi, dzīves saturu, vērtībām un jēgu mainījušās par 90%, bet skolas mācību saturs atpalicis.Palicis tajā vietā, kur tas bija pirms 50-60 gadiem. Līdz ar to arī – masu cilvēka apziņa, vērtības, pasaules izjūta un …rīcība.

Visā pasaulē ir notikusi ne tikai masveida bagātības, bet arī – intelekta un zināšanu polarizācija. Vienkārši un nesaudzīgi.
