Explorations in Human Consciousness
This paper explores the birth, evolution, and future human consciousness and how humans have interacted with the environment over the course of their existence. In the birth of human consciousness, it explores the awareness of death as another critical factor in human development. In the evolution of human consciousness, three periods of development are explored: domestication and agriculture, empires and industry, and the accelerated technology of today. In the future of human consciousness, the paper advocates for a shift in consciousness towards interdependence and social justice to achieve a healthier human-earth relationship.
