"produced and perfected more and more sophisticated technology, including platforms were large (huge) quantity of information (of various credibility levels and values) are available. "
That's true, and it creates a new, uncharted set of social conditions that hasn't been experienced in recorded human history. Alongside that, increasingly divisive ideologies are becoming more and more prevalent, and this is what calls on us to do whatever we can to shed the old ways and discover and define what it means to reach our next stage of maturation.
That is, not to let our abilities to think and the fruits of our understanding become the things that actually hold us back, keeping us forever locked into some kind of childlike state - or worse, to become the tools we use to destroy ourselves and the planet we inhabit.
I definitely want to challenge the idea that this tribalism is a kind of static 'Human Nature' - only that it has been the most practical means to survival in (and product of) an old, divided world. These behaviours make perfect sense given the millions if not billions of years of years of evolution based on scarcity, and living disconnected and isolated within our own communities.
When it comes to human behaviour, I agree with Robert Sapolsky when he says that our nature is not to be constrained by our nature; that it's "sheer nonsense" to suggest that our behaviours are rooted in biology so much so that we might as well not waste resources or put societal energies towards improvement because certain behaviours are just hard-coded and inevitable.
And the ideologies and guiding mentalities most common to us today don't give rise to us overcoming our old ways, and they definitely aren't supporting of us growing up, so to speak.
That's partly what I'm trying to do here - to contribute something to the growing number of people who recognise that the endless cycles of outdated thinking and the behaviours of the old world can be transcended, and to lay down a coherent philosophical foundation that suggests that it's most likely both practical and wise to do exactly that.
As for surveillance capitalism (nice way to put it) ... I've got my sights set on that too, and it doesn't get off easy.
Thanks so much for your input. I really enjoyed reading your response.
