    Default The world is...

    If you had to sum up your opinion of whether or not humanity is headed in the right direction, what would be your choice phrase?

    Please choose one:

    The world of humanity as we know it is:

    A. Headed to hell in a handbasket
    B. Moving along at its pre-destined pace and is unfolding as it should
    C. Meaningless in the grand scheme of things
    D. Not something I care to think about.
    Embrace the possibilities.

    B.

    It's just a vast complex system that is tending toward greater complexity.

    E. Extremely flat.

    I chose to believe that people will be motivated to save collective humanity or we're doomed. I do what I can, and then I have to not concern myself with it anymore or I get very very upset.

    Everything's gonna be fine, but what's an INTJ doing starting a thread like this? That's what I'm pondering now.

    B. I feel sometimes the path we travel down makes us feel like that moment in time is an A...

    It's A. I even knew what A would say before I read the choices.

    There's no 'pre-destined' place for humanity, the future is a blank page (how.very.poetic). Therefore, the answer is either A or B imo. If we manage to change politically, economically etc. before the tipping point, there is a big chance for us to survive and to evolve. Otherwise, it's most likely B.

    (if we accept Lovelock's Gaia theory however, we're already past the bifurcation stage)
