I was thinking about
all of advances in technology and things like stoves and air
conditioning. But now we have an advanced, maybe irreversible climate
problem most likely caused by these advances, so I don't know it was
such a good idea to become so advanced.
There are several
theories out there that hypothesize that the more advance a species
gets, the closer it gets to the “Filters” that will prevent it
from advancing to much.
One of these
“Filters” is that civilizations Destroy themselves when they
reach a certain point. For example once they learn how to build
Nuclear Weapons, it only a matter of a few hundreds years before
someone decides it is time to end it all and thus pave the way for a new species to climb the ladder to the top.
Killer epidemics could wipe out the entire human species before a solution is developed,
paving the way for a new species to climb the ladder.
force world leaders and politicians to come up with a plan to cull
the herd. Your average citizen would have no idea what is happening.
There is actually
some speculation that the Covid virus was deliberately created to
cull the overpopulation problem and get rid of the old and sickly
people, since they are more of a drain on finite resources instead of
adding ideas, and labor to earth’s diminishing resources.
Are we at that point
in the scale of approaching one of those filters?
You tell me. From a
high of 70,300 active weapons in 1986, as of 2019 there are
approximately 3,750 active nuclear warheads and 13,890 total nuclear
warheads in the world. Many of the decommissioned weapons were simply
stored or partially dismantled, not destroyed ---------meaning that
humans still have access to them.
Considering how some
countries armed with Nukes, hate each other to the max, like India
and Pakistan, it wouldn’t take long for ONE OF THEM TO START
SOMETHING and then the whole world join in.
“Filter” would be the same thing that happened to Dinosaurs,--a giant meteor or a possible storm of Asteroids struck the planet earth and wiped them
all out, leaving room for a new species to rise to the top of the
