In my previous piece, “My Real Issue is Human Development” (reviewing my own thoughts as expressed in my “Lefty Parent” blog) I called out that human development and the evolution of consciousness towards a “more evolved” state are what I consider of paramount importance and worthy of continuing discussion. One of my fellow blogging comrades on Daily KOS, “Cassiodorus”, challenged me on this with a thoughtful difference of opinion…
I would recognize life as a progression of qualitatively different states, with new realizations and burned energies each step of the way… You have cycles: birth, life, death.
Perhaps a more pragmatic, less metaphysical take on our species and individual existences than my own.
My comrade posed a provocative question on what in fact I meant by “more evolved” and what exactly did I see the human species developing towards?
So in the spirit of what I see as an important ongoing dialog… here goes!
