Human society begins to see its hidden pitfalls and many people realize it. All the conflict and pain that is turning around. It gets tough and intense. Questions like, What should I believe or do? What is wrong with mankind? Or how do I fix this?, might rise up.
For long periods of time social norms were the ideal way of seeing life, treating life and living your life. Now the coronapandemic is touching everything there is in society all the old-dated social norms become more obvious. The old-dated social norms are mainly driven bye fear, survivalmechanisms and ways of keeping certain structures together. Out of this way of thinking comes the ideology that we have to solve every problem there is, that we have to solve conflict bye installizing more securitychecks and harder punishments, that we have to make sure nobody does something that might be dangerous and that life should be mainly focused on attacking and defending your opinion.
The focus in society now is to make problems so big that politics has to take them into account and solve them right away. The only thing that misses here is that society cannot solve every problem immediately. Most solutions take time and don’t happen over night. Quick solutions for a problem might create only more problems in the near-future.
What happens today is that the problem gets highlighted bye the media so that it becomes obvious and visible and everybody can see and understand it. The danger in doing so is that when no real solutions are brought into place, everybody is left alone with a problem that only soakes them in and keeps them stuck.
Then questions arise like, How do I get out of such a problemhole? How do I get out of the loophole of problems, fears and quickfixes?
I think that Albert Einstein stated it rightly and that is that you cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it in the first place. So to translate it to ourselves it’s the task to rise above the problemhole and think clearly and creatively so that the highlighted problems can be truly solved.
When humanity realizes that most problems cannot be solved bye quick fixes we will start to focus on true solutions. History shows that every timeperiod there has been, the world problems were solved bye succeful scientific and technological advancements. These advancements were not brought up in one day, but more over a lifetime of thousands of different scientists, thinker and engineers. The breakthroughs were created bye people who thought about one problem for such a long period of time that one day when nobody expects it they transform whole of society. We should do the same with our problems today, to think patiently, clearly and creatively to tackle problems of mankind more completely.
Possibly someone is thinking about something that becomes a breakthrough in our near-future? Don’t forget that only a hand full of people shaped the basic building blocks of the world we live in today. So this will not be the end!!!
