THE Evolutionary's Guide to Changing the World
In his 1955 masterpiece The Phenomenon of Man, French priest and paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin wrote the following words: "Evolution is a light which illuminates all facts, a curve that all lines must follow." Over the course of the past half century since its publication, this prophetic statement has turned out to be true, as evolution has become a defining framework in which we are beginning to understand virtually everything - from biology and technology to the interior dimensions of reality like our psychology, cultural worldviews, and even spirituality.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin goes on to propose in Chapter 3: The Grand Option of his book, which he aptly entitled The Future of Mankind ... "This being so, let us look at the human species and SEE IF we can fit it into the scheme. Because we ate a part of it, because the rhythm of its growth is infinitely slow in comparison with our own, and because its grandeur overwhelms us, Mankind, in its total evolution, escapes our intuitive grasp. But may we not see reflected in the life around us things that we cannot see directly in ourselves? Let us study ourselves in the mirror of other living forms.
WHAT DO WE SEE ?
When THE WAY comes to an end, then change;
having changed, you pass through - I Ching
