Time of changes

In the world history there's never been a time in which so many changes have been going on as it is right now. The acceptance towards change, the reflexive search of alternate futures is key to the survival of civilization and maybe human beings. Ours is the first generation that has been raised with the ideas of Sci-Fi.

Carl Sagan - "Broca's brain" (Page 104 in the Spanish edition)


Carl Sagan


We are in a really important time of our evolution as species, we need to adapt as well as possible to all the changes we have been living for a while now. The Sagan's quotation I've wrote before is from his book "Broca's brain", published for the first time in 1974. Already then he managed to notice all the changes coming to the human society. Today it's obvious. How the day of tomorrow's going to be depends solely in how we do things today.

In my humble opinion, we're fucked, although time to time we can see some hope. We've got lot to improve, and a lot to do.

I think the most important thing is not to accept changes, but to let them happen.

Ain't that kind of the same? by accepting them you are letting them happen.

Actually, accepting them goes further than let them happen. Acceptance has the extra action of adopting them to the way you live; while just letting them happen might be that you don't fight it, neither adopt it.

That's the way I see it those definitions at least :)
