What is Humanity?

With all of the wars and political unrest in the world today, humanity needs to come to some sort of understanding. This war, between East and West Germany, was a battle between civilizations, in a land without a continent. Yet mankind has attempted to cross continents and destroy each other on countless occasions. Now that the two nations have reunified, they are bound to work together to ensure that humankind can live in peace.


Humanity’s flaws have been exposed through history, but those events need to be addressed so that humanity does not continue down the path of destruction. One such flaw is that of mankind’s self-interest. Humans have created technology which is superior to everything else on the face of the earth, including itself. This creates an illusion for humans that they are in control of the entire universe, when the truth is that they are one mind, and part of a complex organism which controls the earth and its environment. If humans would stop looking up at the stars and down at the ground, they would realize that they are part of a much bigger picture.

Another flaw humanity has is that it tries to regulate itself through laws and force. Humans need to evolve into something more than violent animals, as they are the ones who created the violent planet we call Earth. Through the laws that humans have made, they have tried to control their society and their environment, which only creates more problems. Humans need to look for other ways to live.

There are other species in the universe which share our interests, which will help us better adapt to life on Earth. One such creature is Chimpanzees. These creatures have shown a greater interest in objects than humans, which has led to the development of science. Humans are still stuck in their old ways, trying to figure out how to use the universe they are living on to make themselves and their civilization survive. This is a big problem that needs to be solved if mankind wants to continue being a part of this universe.

There is another problem in existence, which is mankind’s attitude towards their neighbors. Many times, neighbors will do things that are negative to our interests, which leads us to war. We need to change our way of thinking before we start wars. Since the beginning of time, people have been fighting among themselves, which causes even more deaths and damages. If we want to have peace in the world, we need to change the way we look at others and the way we look at ourselves.

It is said that all of the greatest minds to have existed in history have one thing in common, which is that they were all great intellectuals. In order for mankind to move forward, it needs intellectual leaders. The first step to doing this is to become aware of the problems that mankind has created in the past, in the present, and in the future. In doing so, one will be able to look for solutions for these problems. Then, mankind can once again emerge as the dominant species that it deserves to be.
