Why should the cosmos, or God or the universe's energy or evolution have taken such pains to create over a million years on planet Earth the incredible, sophisticated human species with a beating heart, a thinking brain, the will to live and to reproduce, if it was not to be a constructive element of the evolution on that planet, a building block of it? We were not created for our mere enjoyment and satisfactions of our current, selfish, materialistic society.
We must therefore rethink almost everything in terms of what God or the cosmos really expect from us, as our contribution to the further evolution of planet Earth.
Astrophysicist Eric Chaisson and Nobel prize winner biologist Christian de Duve show us the way: on any planet in the universe on which there is life, one species in the long run attains an almost complete knowledge of that planet and of part of the universe. When this happens the further evolution of that planet will depend on that species, on its values, beliefs, objectives and institutions. If these do not pay attention to the further evolution of that planet, it will be the end of the evolution of that planet.
We have reached that critical stage on planet Earth. Perhaps these 5000 ideas and dreams might be of some help in defining and pointing at the required new values, beliefs, objectives and institutions of the human race. So help us God.

Illusion is probably the most commonly shared human virtue, but it is not very often expressed and made an ideal worth looking up to.
