"in the past, we gained the power to manipulate the world around us and reshape the plant, but because we didn't understand the complexity of the global ecology, the changes we made inadvertently disrupted the entire ecological system, and we now face an ecological collapse. in the coming century, biotech and infotech will give us the power to manipulate the world inside us and reshape ourselves, but because we don't understand the complexity of our own minds, the changes we make might upset our mental system to such and extent that it too might break down."
(Yuval Noah Harari)
Why do we embed our stories in the landscape, in toys, dances, or songs? We believe that every action that you make will have an effect for seven generations. If you are careless or cruel it will cause a scar of trauma that will last through the next seven generations as well. If you want to teach something, you must teach it in a way that would last for seven generations.
