Our brilliant minds possibly carry the inherited seeds of our potential end.
Human conscious cognitive process is limited by design to crystallise its new neural paths ones a certain number of repetitions have past. This is a finite , greater than zero number.
Like new paths on virgin theritories, the more people use the same road, the clearer the path will become for future explorers: some tend to follow the crystallised paths while some will adventure to explore newer ones, unsatisfied by the mere existing ones.
Even if it is a trivial comparison, we act accordingly regardless of the construction of our roads: within our minds or physically defined by our feet, in the case of physical paths created by humans in virgin nature.
Since our conscious minds are exposed to an ever accelerating number of paths alternatives at any given time, the only natural option for us to instruct the conscious mind to go that way or the other way is to decrease the time we allow ourselves to analyse the outcomes of the several options. To trust more our subconscious.
The more we decrease the time, the more “emotional” we become and the more we will transit our conscious decisions to a deeper, more biologically prepared level to handle these higher level magnitude of contextual information.
This means that regardless of our conscious future actions, we will sooner or later live in a world where every living person on the planet will move toward “gut” decisions, like any other living animal around us.
No conscious global therapy will be so efficient to treat our selves before this transition will diffuse globally, partially because will over stimulate a mind already engaged at its peak. Even today, with very small “local” threats (like couple therapies, yoga or dance) it takes months/years to see results on a consistent population fraction.
More over, an ever decreased time to analyse potential future outcomes (our human biggest ability to cooperate) can rapidly create a down spiral effect in which superficiality will be at its peak, potentially leading to a global mind polarisation (every one would like to take its own more appropriate path towards a unique destination) and the time required to conciliate collective paths will be pressed by the weight of our infinite choices. In marketing it is called the paradox of choice.
Allowing our minds to diffuse themselves into ourselves could be our individual crossroad to a both collective and individual existence.
