Allegory of the rabbit chase engine and the social engine.

Standard

Summary: I propose that most of our man-made systems are designed with highly desirable but virtually unattainable goals. I also propose that man-made systems based on this rabbit-chase models may be adding more obstacles than we need because we already operate within natural systems based on rabbit-chase models.-.

Peace, the end of hunger, the end of poverty, the end of human suffering, Happiness, Truth, Reality, Knowledge, maximum human potential. Do these sound familiar?

They are the carrots of our social systems. Like rabbits we chase them around in circles (cycles) but we never really reach them.

Why?

Because our social systems are designed in a way that will prevent us from reaching them. They were designed like this because the system architects thought this was the only way to keep the systems alive.

We are like the rats inside the wheel, always running but not really going anywhere – never making any progress. What we are doing is we are acting as the engine for the systems we are performing in.

Our dreams, our hope, our idealism, our optism, our struggle are the fuel of social engine of the systems.

But once we step our of the cave we can see that this reality is created, designed, architected, but in my opinion these designs in our man-made systems are not necessary.

Why?

Because we already exist within a natural system based on a similar cyclycal engine where we struggle for success but never truly acchieve it.

We need to simplyfy our systems. We need to remove false goals. We need to remove false dilemmas, false competition, false struggles.

We need to re-focus on our natural systems challenges. The challenge for human survival, the challenge for peace, the challenge Truth, the challenge of world-wide education, the challenge of world-wide hunger, The challenge of worldwide disease, the challenge of world-wide suffering and injustice, the challenge of true-maximum human potentials.

These are our super-goals. These are the carrots we need to struggle to catch while we know that if we ever do catch it, it will be gone again shortly.
