Back to Stone Age !

The Stone Age was a time thousands of years ago, when humans lived in caves and jungles. Life was simple, and there were only two main things to do – to survive and to eat. Eventually, humans grew intellectually and were guided by various philosophies of life on earth, which gradually made humans the prominent beings that impacted the earth by their expression. The exploration of the different dimensions of earth like natural elements, biology, geography and physiology lead man to diverse realities that were logically and precisely reasonable to be perceived, especially by humans. This progressed man’s social behavior and civilization. And so man evolved rapidly by his perception to manipulate or his reality and enhance his survival on earth and hence he civilized through the bronze age, iron age, industrial age and currently, age of information.

The irony of the highly evolved human is his stupidity which arises by the distortion of the basic human psycho-emotional judgments, that are made constantly and progressively by an individual which leaves a trace in the social environment through human communications and applications. So even though the current age seems rapidly progressing informatively and technically but their intellectual control over their psycho-emotional patterns and behaviors has been deterred, even though their perception and awareness of it has increased. A majority has progressed and peaked sciences and pre-applied configurations but on the contrary loses on their intellectual control to make judgements regarding morality and the basic human developmental principles which are purely emotional and psychological in nature.

For, say the sound judgement to judge a murderer with the penalty of death, is the killing of this person justifiable or not? Or is it justifiable to kill an animal or plant for the sake of entertainment? Such moral guidelines and behavioral traits have been passed on through generations which have been strongly shakened and forgotten in the thirst for information and knowledge. And now it is seeming to reach to a point where a majority in this collective society have shut close their emotional and psycho-reasoning temptations or left them to be rest upon the opinions of whoever seems convenient. This has triggered the desire for absolute freedom which in turn has influenced people to respond and fulfill their own convenience and moreover compete at it.

Hence the cognitive ability of humans to handle their psycho-emotional personalities in reality has become tougher even though they have peaked their logical and calculative abilities. This disassociation from basic human social guidelines and wisdom leads to total disclosure of accurate and optimum cognitive judgements and emotional behaviors. We have peaked in our skillful cognition but on the contrary we are degressing in our emotional and psychological cognition, going back to being just like our lesser intellectual ancestors, but this time with sufficient reasonability. Which is idiocracy to be so well equipped with the ethics of civilization but going back to being like uncivilized beings.
