Yet, this is not the end of the story. The progress in modern biology, complex system, nonlinear science has drawn another humanitarian epic narrative (Wilson, 1999), out of the Darwin jungle one — indeed we are stardust, but we are also children of the sun: “Human social existence, unlike animal sociality, is based on the genetic propensity to form long-term contracts that evolve by culture into moral precepts and law. They evolved over tens or hundreds of millennia because they conferred upon the genes prescribing their survival and the opportunity to be represented in future generations. We are not errant children who occasionally sin by disobeying instructions from outside our species. We are adults who have discovered which covenants are necessary for survival, and we have accepted the necessity of securing them by sacred oath.” --- Artificial Intelligence and Humanities in Measure, Manifold, Learning, and Optimization: A Theory Of Neural Networks
I found loneliness, I found the solitary pain that gnaws the heart, But also peace I do find. Sorrow is knowledge; they who know the most Must mourn the deepest over the fatal truth. Yet, the tree of Knowledge is also that of Life. It reveals Love as our Nature, and Reason is our Blessing; Ethereal can weave with Mundane, and Peace Lies in Making. Now, Old yet still Young I have known you. And, knowing you, I have found both ecstasy & peace; I know the rest. After so many solitary years, I know what Life may be, though I may still not know Love. Now, if I could keep moving, I see Possibilities. I shall Sail, As if I am still Young.
