But wait! There's a problem (or a joke, depending on if you get it or not): you don't yet know who you are. Yes you think you know. But you don't. Not really. It doesn't come with the territory.
That's how it was for you and I when all this started. Now it's today, millennia later. And everything we inherited, indeed everything we built from what we inherited, is predicated on one disconcerting fact: that when all this started, and then as we continued building everything we built, we knew not who we are. And the cosmos didn't tell us. It's its wry joke, its wicked sense of humor, its penchant for experiment if you will: it rolled the dice, sat back, watched, and wondered if we'd figure it out.
And for the most part, we didn't figure it out - at least not until around ... about ... now when one maverick called out the emperor for wearing no clothes, so to speak. And given that wasn't available until very, very recently, what we see around us now is evidence of what our world's become after what we created using everything we knew from what we inherited, excluded knowing who we are.
It's tempting to recite a well-established list of all the issues resulting from that telling oversight, then tout solutions. I'm actually not going to do that (and if you want to stay informed, there are many institutions and highly respected individuals who will provide those details). We, as a global family (appreciated that way, or not) do indeed face a plethora of issues, some of which if we don't act on them tout de suite, are slated to soon become insurmountable, bringing a raft of dire consequences.
