75. What do you think?

If the ego factor is controlled in the future and humankind moves on to form an egalitarian society, at the collective level, there’ll still be a lot of questions left for man to seek answers to.

Like we saw earlier, science had understood only 5 percent of the known universe with the rest of it remaining a complex mystery. This goes along with the words of Werner Heisenberg, “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass…

74. What can we do?

The idea of ‘God’ is not something that disappears easily. The reason is that people don’t just believe in Gods based on religions and their scriptures. Like we saw, there are several layers in which the ‘God’ factor acts in our lives.

At a personal level, some people want answers for all their questions about reality and existence; some want hope, some want to feel secure by believing in a higher power watching over them, some want to be…

73. A Hopeful Future

Right now, human life on earth is going through very rapid changes. With stress from the society around us, most of us, the half-thinking generations have started turning towards religions and Gods for relief.

Having gained some knowledge about the reality throughout sciences, religious scriptures seems to make some sense to them. Spiritual ideas about life and reality that were borrowed to form…

72. The New world!

A uniformity of cultures set in at the end of the twentieth century with capitalism turning countries into markets. People were made to believe the economies are more important than their own lives.

Dreams about luxurious lives were (are) spread among people through advertisements, and people began chasing money, leaving behind whatever little was left of their humanitarian values. The economic system influenced political systems and globalisation connected the economies of nations like in a…

70. The Modern World and it’s New Avenues

When colonialism began, and contacts grew between civilisations more than ever before, Gods and religions had attained a stable place in the minds of the weak.

Some of the strong and intelligent progressed forward in the name of science. They had one goal, to explain the reality in a better sense than the religions ever did before. Philosophical discussions grew on the side with…

69. Intrinsic Effects

Culturally and economically, the societies grew in the most complex way possible. Comprehending each and every step in the evolution of cultures is a tremendous task, but it is a beautiful sight to see the steps involved in the changes. True, we can read about them in books, observe their diversity in our travels and so on; but to see how every word of every language influences the thought process of its people and how it shapes up their minds, it is mind-blowing.

Words are powerful, yes, but using one specific word instead of another and observing how it affects every layer of our…

68. Political Control

The Religions were originally formulated to simplify spirituality’s ideas and teach them to people. All religious scriptures explain (spiritual) ideas like karma, the joys and sorrows of life and so on, in a way the common man can understand.

They did so in the language the local communities of the time can understand, and it was done by people who understood these ideas in their essence. Right now, with a whole lot of…

67. Acceptance and Perceptions

Every life form is born in a different point in the space-time continuum; they experience the reality at a different time, with a unique perspective and meet an end in a different point in space-time. The end is mostly an uncertain one!

The energy, in the form of life, goes through these unique experiences not for us to compare our lives with others but to grow and evolve to understand ourselves and itself!

66. Rising Concerns

The thing that created such confusions about of God is that, throughout time, men have been adding up a lot of properties to the entity.

We saw how the societal norms and their reverence were added to the deities, and how the questions unsolvable by men were immediately added to the God’s knowledge. We still use the phrase, ‘Only God knows…’ or ‘Leave it in the hands of God…’ These little actions…

64. Evolution of Religions – 2

In time, man learnt about the connection between the forces of nature, between the mountains and the rivers, between the sun and the trees, and so on. He then started believing in a spirit or a force, connecting all these forces with one another and finally, with himself.

There began animism, with the belief in the intricate connection between everything and the deities were assigned relational statuses. The distinction between the forces of creation and forces of destruction took a firm hold…
