Social theory


img-responsive

Human evolution is motivated by individual human creativity, and is enhanced by human diversity. This is what motivates and promotes cultural development, and - through cultural development in local communities - this is what promotes social progress. When you have both cultural development and social progress you also create opportunities for everyone, and this is what promotes social cohesion and economic prosperity.

There is never any need for any ideology in human evolution, because human evolution doesn't need an ideology. It just is, because the human species just is, the planet just is, nature just is, and so too is the universe itself.

The basis of human life experience

The fundamental basis for human life experience is the felt sense of immediate experience and the sense of belonging in a community in order to be able to share those experiences of the environment with others in the community. What this actually means is that culture and being involved in cultural development is what is central and pivotal to the individual human experience of life.

The process aspect of living

Life is a continuous experience, simply because existence is a continuous process, and this is what makes the experience of life a journey, a passage, an adventure and evolutionary process for everyone. However this same evolutionary process, which is common to all of us, is also common to our community, society and ultimately, our evolution as a species. This can only be developed through an evolutionary approach to culture and cultural development, which gives people constant opportunities to thrive through a continuous process of opportunities for individuation, multiplication and diversification of the species. This can be the only environment in which human beings naturally thrive and which allows us to return to being the natural caretakers and nurturers of other species and the environment itself. This is because we need the constant back and forth, to and fro through the interface of the felt sense of immediate experience with our environment.

The pivotal nature of culture in human society

Human beings are the most socially variant species in the animal kingdom. We have more languages than any other species. More theories and beliefs that any other species. We have developed more ways of raisin our young, forming communities, creating societies than any other animal. But we are also the cruellest, the most dangerous species in the animal kingdom, and arguably the most predatory and virulent. The basis of the human experience is language and culture, and out of this we have beliefs, theories, ideas and a tendency towards ideologies. We are also the only species of the animal kingdom to form compulsions, create addictions and this is usually done on the basis of belief attachments and disorders which can result in emotional disturbances, dysfunctions, personality disorders and mental illness and much of this comes out of a culture and enviroment of cultural decline caused by persistent beliefs which are developed out of individualism.

Individualism is toxic to human evolution

Human evolution is dependent on human creativity, human empathy, a sense of community, compassion and the development of intelligence, insight, and perception of consciousness. These things all bring insight, wisdom and understanding of our environment, each other, and ultimately, ourselves. Individualism goes against all these core human values and needs for nothing more than an addiction to money and power at the expense of everything else.

Conclusion

Human evolution is motivated by individual human creativity, empathy, cultural development and community cooperation. Humans are complex, social, and thrive on diversity. Every single human needs opportunities for individuation, acceptance and a sense of belonging in order to thrive. We come as a whole package and until we learn to diversify and cooperate as a species our chances of further evolution on this planet are non-existent.
