We are mammals with a unique intellectual capacity and composition that comes pre-loaded with an innate sense of imagination.
An imagination that allows us to suspend the world we have, and to envision instead a society we want. That vivid imagination paired with the unrelenting curiosity about nature’s truth and reason allows us to predict what is most likely to happen next. A fractal of discovery subsequently recursively expanding the fringe of human ingenuity and capacity.
How we have developed such a skillset is by natural selection. For those who can predict the future more accurately have a better chance of survival and procreation.
