I’ve been talking a lot about how change is a FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF LIFE. Biological entities have DNA which builds our bodies and defines our unique abilities and deficiencies. But more than that, DNA is the mechanism that perpetuates and propels species through TIME by allowing adaptation to changing environmental conditions. The universe is always changing and anything wishing to persist needs a way of dealing with those changes. Biological things, like humans, have DNA to do that very job.
So a main assumption of the Are vs. Should Problem is that change is fundamental.
Another key assumption is that DNA is how we navigate that change – as individuals and as a species.
And my point in Episodes 61 and 62 is to point out a HUGE problem currently plaguing the human race:
We are currently RESISTING change, rather than embracing it.
And, I’ll argue, THIS is a major contributor to MOST of human problems.
From world hunger, to climate change, to our obsession with war. . . . it’s all about NOT understanding the need to change. To react. To modify. It’s literally in our nature. And when you fight your nature, you’re going to lose.
