Our place in the Universe Sticky

The initial sequence for Human Progress is, unavoidably, the same as for Humanity itself: 

  1. Cosmos
  2. Earth
  3. Life

Being aware of and knowing to appreciate the harmony and beauty of cosmic laws and forces as well of the magic of life and consciousness, is an undisputable premise to allow for any further Human Progress, since we are no more than just one of the last steps (at least as we know of) in the long chain of an everlasting cosmic evolution.

For those who have not yet grasped this understanding or, on the contrary, want to reinforce this awareness, Human Progress strongly and passionately recommends the following sequence of videos, just for a start ;) Enjoy!

One of Carl Sagan's most pertinent messages for humanity.

Vision and starting point of Human Progress

Ever since the Big Bang originated the universe, all that exists and is, entered in an everlasting Cosmic Evolution: not just life, but also our planet and the universe as a whole. This evolution is characterized by just one constantly repeating event: the continuous increase of existing complexity.

Snowball Earth

Scope: 

Snowball Earth describes a theory that for millions of years the Earth was entirely smothered in ice, stretching from the poles to the tropics. This freezing happened over 650 million years ago in the Pre-Cambrian, though it's now thought that there may have been more than one of these global glaciations. They varied in duration and extent but during a full-on snowball event, life could only cling on in ice-free refuges, or where sunlight managed to penetrate through the ice to allow photosynthesis.

One single man recovers a forest

In India there is a man who singlehandedly and without using any industrial machinery has recovered a forest of 550 hectares (Central Park NYC = 341 hectares), all by himself since 1979. Who's next?
With just 0,017% of human population doing the same, we would recover another Amazon forest!

Origins of life on earth

(3.800 Million years ago: the year 024 on the 100 year time-scale)

The emergence of life on earth is directly related and seemingly stimulated by the process itself by which the planet was formed. Even the oldest known rocks on the planet, of some 3.800 million years old, already show traces of organic impact, proving at least the existence of some form of the building blocks of life.

The Cambrian Explosion

Scope: 

(530 Million years ago - year 89 on the 100 year time-scale)
The first simple life forms seem to have appeared much sooner on Earth than previously assumed, actually almost as soon as the planet became stable enough, with a stable crust and enough water for some primal oceans, some 3.800 million years ago.
However it then took over 2.000 billion years for these simple creatures to evolve to more complex organisms, which suddenly thrived in what is called the Cambrian Explosion, only some 500 million years ago.

Earth's beauty

Scope: 

The beauty of our home planet.

Humanity could simply not live a better life, than in harmony with this only true and natural surrounding for us.

Unfortunately, over many centuries certain forces have made insistent efforts to convince us, and themelves, that mankind is superior to the rest of nature so it is there at our disposal, only to be exploited at our will and always in the name of some abstract superior authority: gods, the nation, the economy.
