Here is the critical knowledge that will help us survive and thrive. Our human brain has entered a super-mature stage of development that provides us the godlike power to create and destroy. Suddenly, the specialized qualities of the cerebral cortex make us responsible for our survival. The mysterious ability of the human brain to transverse physical and mental (non-physical, spiritual) borders empowers us to influence our own destiny. By the use of symbols to make ourselves interpretive creatures, we elevate ourselves from an immoral to a moral species. We add a spiritual self to our physical self. Our collection of assumed values becomes the moral system that guides our thinking, feelings, and actions.
To the degree we discover knowledge of the universal laws of cause-and-effect, what we otherwise call common sense, we enter into the super-maturity stage of development. To the degree we passively obey authority, we will remain servant to fate, circumstance, culture, and any dictator we allow to dominate our assumptive values. The process of reaching this third stage of development, beyond immaturity and maturity, is called by various names that include super-maturity, becoming our own person, mental freedom, and self-mastery.
