Do you agree ? Nature want us to go Long way to happiness, because this mean you Will make sure that your body, mind,... Survive good. This is stage one, 2021 Stone age.
No, I do not agree. We are not living in the stone age, we are living in the age of reason. We strive to overcome our primal instincts and live co-operative lives as social creatures living in harmony with one another. We restrain our natural self / instinct / id with higher thinking / rationale / logic / superego to not behave as the animals but rather as human beings. If the above is your approach to life, I wish you success and good luck, but for me it is the higher road of humanity and reason...

Learn nothing to look up or down. Ask yourself: if smth. I Look up or down is it even possible to see things as they are ? At 20 energy is up. It is boring full cool or bad.... Nature want : even without knowledge you push things forward. Learn not to see things up or down but as they are... And learn to leave your body and mind alone. Dont talk yourself all the time this or that, people dont realize if you leave things alone then natural state of mind is happiness...
I 100% agree and I want to correct exactly this. As you say, not see things up or down but as they are and learn to leave your body and mind alone. But it is so hard to do this because I think I have been spending so much time letting my mind wander without even realizing it, that has influenced my perception in such a way that I have ended up automating a negative brain pattern. It's very hard for me to just live without overthinking all the time.

It is true that we are not animals but actually sometimes I see animals and "envy" their lack of intellect as they live life without any kind of overthinking. They just live, connected to reality all the time. I think human mind is the greatest but can also become the worst if not used correctly.

Yes, it would be easy living life as an animal, passively living without a care, like the birds of the air. However, you would not have airconditioning, or heat, a roof over your head, family and friends to love you, and you would die a very simple death, after a very simple life. On the other hand, you can live the life of someone who makes a positive contribution to society, has positive influences on the people around them, and you could die a simple death after having lived a very long and fulfilling life! What is your choice? It is your choice, you know, how will you spend your life? Like and animal in the wild, or as someone who will contribute positively to mankind? Your decision...
Best to you,
Ivery

These are general time frames used to describe periods in the history of mankind. Yes, there were cities, tools, and language, but there were also very widespread superstitions and we had not learned rational and logical thought patterns (at least they were not very widespread) We currently live in an era described as the age of reason, where we use scientific experiments and logical reasoning to explain our surroundings. With the advent of social media it may seem that we are digressing back into an era of popular belief makes something right (as when the majority of the people believed the earth was flat and orbited by the sun), but for true insights we still look to logic and reason for solutions...

I love your talented perspective, I think you should write an article about this and publish because it is a valuable-creative idea really. :) I'd write with you an article, however, I am not sure much about your background. :)

I am not sure if we are in same page... Science says for example heavy metal, like it is used to produce spoon or computer parts was made by exploiding stars like sun. Would you say if you wacth fireworks some emotion, feeling happens in you, and if you are looking the spoon like 100000000x more of the same emotion ? Intelect make you go Just so far... And then are more... Stone age was using intelect primarly and we are still in same principle mode.... We Just survive better with more luxuries... Better stone age. Dont be sonmuch in Love with time of reason, we are still half alive Mans... Because we want to survive, not expirience Life in more deeper level.
