Our progress is the world's [en-es]

in Proof of Brain10 months ago (edited)

I have noticed lately that our evolution in the world, throughout our history, has brought about some small incidents involving agents outside of our own uncontrolled evolutionary plan.

As we have improved our condition of life, we have thought that these changes have only affected our condition. We have become self-absorbed, thinking that the world is not part of our habitat, as if everything around us wants to kill us or hinder us. we have thought that we are special and that we have a gift that makes us superior to everything that lives with us. But we are not.

The rest of the animals do not even reach our ankles in imaginative capacity, it is true. That led us to believe without a doubt that we are not part of this nature that we avoid, that makes us uncomfortable and puts barriers in our progress. That is what we have thought.

I remember that on a certain occasion I told one of my students, I don't remember the reason, that we are all animals and he stared at me as if looking for the smile on my face that denotes the joke. I didn't know he was as animal as a dog. And I am talking about a boy of about 13 years old.

Now, in these times we have seen the achievements that our intellect has guaranteed us and at the same time the problems that nature imposes on us. It seems like a war. But there is a small detail that either we have not seen, or we do not want to see. To win this war is to lose it.

The lion that kills to eat will never be able to eat so much as to put his food at risk. There are not that many lions, and their prey reproduces in sufficient numbers. It is a balance that we have understood for a long time. However, we do not obey this rule. And that gift that "glorifies" us also excludes us.

It is because of this curious separation between us and the rest of the beings that live here with us that we have seen our world at risk.

Let's think about this. We hate the virus because it takes advantage of its host to reproduce and live, not caring if in doing so it kills the host. We hate them because we do not see them, and our pride is destroyed knowing that we were not killed by the tiger or the lion or the snow or the drought, but by the ghost that seeks us. That poisonous ghost that closes our eyes and leaves us in the room. But we hate them because being so weak, so helpless, so illogical, they do so much harm. And finally, we hate them because we discover a small detail: they are like us, and we hate the irony that this involves.

Evolution does not belong to our species, it should never belong to us. Each of our achievements must be the achievement of the rest of the life that accompanies us on this planet and especially of those who help us directly. We should not take advantage of the world, but make it evolve. Because by improving it, we improve ourselves. It is not to maintain the balance, it is to be the balance, because it seems that, nowadays, when the human improves, the environment around him gets worse; and, little by little, the world will make him balance downwards, it will pull him by the feet so that he does not go so far.

If we are going to live, we should not live far away from what life gives us. We have done so many stupid things on our journey that it would be even more foolish to continue doing them. We must improve the world, not fight it. Cure the world so that it does not make us sick.

He notado últimamente que nuestra evolución en el mundo, a lo largo de nuestra historia, ha acarreado algunos pequeños incidentes que involucran agentes ajenos a nuestro propio plan evolutivo no controlado.

A medida que hemos mejorado nuestra condición de vida, hemos pensado que esos cambios solo han afectado a nuestra condición. Nos hemos ensimismado, pensado que el mundo no es parte de nuestro hábitat, como si todo lo que nos rodeara nos quisiera matar o ponernos obstáculos. hemos pensado que somos especiales y que tenemos un don que nos hace superiores a todo lo que convive con nosotros. Pero no lo somos.

El resto de los animales no nos llegan ni a los tobillos en capacidad imaginativa, es cierto. Eso nos llevó a creer sin dudad que no somos parte de esta naturaleza a la que esquivamos, que nos incomoda y nos pone barreras en nuestro avance. Eso hemos pensado.

Recuerdo que cierta ocasión le dije a uno de mis estudiantes, no recuerdo la razón, que todos somos animales y se me quedó mirando como buscando en mi cara la sonrisa que denota el chiste. No sabía que el era tan animal como un perro. Y hablo de un muchacho de 13 años aproximadamente.

Ahora bien, en estos tiempos hemos visto los logros que nuestro intelecto nos ha garantizado y a la vez los problemas que la naturaleza nos impone. Parece como una guerra. Pero hay un pequeño detalle que, o no hemos visto, o no queremos ver. Ganar esta guerra es perderla.

El león que mata para comer jamás será capaz de comer tanto como para poner en riesgo su alimento. No hay tantos leones, y su presa se reproduce en cantidades suficientes. Es un equilibrio que tenemos entendido desde hace mucho tiempo. Sin embargo, nosotros no obedecemos a esa regla. Y ese don que nos "glorifica" también nos excluye.

Es por esa curiosas separación entre nosotros y el resto de los seres que viven aquí con nosotros, que hemos visto nuestro mundo en riesgo.

Pensemos en esto. Odiamos al virus porque se aprovecha de su huésped para reproducirse y vivir, sin importarle si al hacer eso mata al huésped. Los odiamos porque no los vemos, y nuestro orgullo se destruye al saber que no nos mato el tigre ni el león ni la nieve ni la sequía, pero si el fantasma que nos busca. Ese fantasma venenoso que nos cierra los ojos y nos deja en el cuarto. Pero los odiamos porque siendo tan débiles, tan indefensos, tan ilógicos, hacen tanto daño. Y por último, los odiamos porque descubrimos un pequeño detalle: son como nosotros, y odiamos la ironía que eso involucra.

La evolución no es de nuestra especie, nunca debe serlo. Cada uno de nuestros logros debe ser el logro del resto de la vida que nos acompaña en este planeta y en especial de los que nos ayudan directamente. No deberíamos aprovecharnos del mundo, sino hacerlo evolucionar. Porque mejorándolo a él, nos mejoramos. No es por mantener el equilibrio, es por ser el equilibrio, porque parece que, actualmente, cuando el humano mejora, el ambiente a su alrededor empeora; y el mundo, poco a poco, lo hará equilibrarse hacia abajo, le halará por los pies para que no se vaya tan lejos.

Si vamos a vivir, no debemos hacerlo lejos de lo que nos da la vida. Hemos hecho tantas estupideces en nuestro recorrido, que sería aun más tonto seguir haciéndolas. Debemos mejorar al mundo, no combatirlo. Curar al mundo para que no nos enferme.
