IS WORLD UNITY AN IMPOSSIBLE DREAM?

Is world unity really an impossible dream? Is there a mystical resolution that can address all of the world’s challenges? Recently I read an article about an adult self-help seminar. During the course of the sessions of the seminar’s rigorous routines, there were several enthusiasts and there were several skeptics. However, in the weeks following participation in this seminar event, it seems everyone, both enthusiasts and skeptics, reported favorable changes in their lives. It also turns out that the majority of the participants were mostly concerned with managing their lives’ daily events. Only one person seemed to want to change the world and wanted to make personal changes to connect to that goal.
There is a saying that goes like this: “people who are crazy enough to change the world are the ones who actually do change the world”. The doctor who wanted medical students to wash their hands after they had worked in autopsy, and before reporting to the birthing ward, was ostracized and persecuted so severely by his contemporaries in the medical field that he dropped out of medical practice – even though infant mortality rates dropped a dramatic 50% after he insisted on hand-washing.
The man that was assigned with fixing railroad schedules proposed that “time must be standardized”, but needed officials to agree on this as a routine practice across the nation. Apparently, the mayor of one town vehemently protested this proposition, saying that ‘standardizing time would be a revolution in our time, and would deeply disturb people’s traditional notions and convictions about everything’ – – Imagine that !?! Could we possibly be any more disturbed while we are just trying to manage the personal priorities of our daily lives ??? Does the average person know that without an atomically regulated clock in their computer or cell phone that neither would be capable of existing? Yeah, yeah, the algorithms and configurations of 0’s and 1’s in your computer devices are devised in conjunction with the precision of atomic time. But if you are unconcerned with the development of the whole world, all this means absolutely nothing — even though the crazy people who bothered to change and improve the world made it possible for each of us to have a computer, cell phone and HDTV.
Now, to finally get to the heart of this blog and this particular entry – is there a means of world unity that people can converge upon that will be palatable and favorable to everyone regardless of their beliefs, personal priorities and cultural convictions?
Okay, so here we go again…
What would be the one thing that people can universally and unanimously agree upon, which would and could emphatically influence a significant shift in beneficial human progress, specifically, a shift that is superior to politics, economics, philosophy & religion, or cultural agendas? — and why do these means fail to qualify for making significant changes in human progress? Well, the answer to that is simple. There is just too much discord and disagreement upon these issues.
Let’s look at an overlooked area of human development that is commonly dismissed as a means for world improvement, and even self-improvement for those who are less concerned with world improvement. Here are the universal premises that most people can most unanimously agree upon:
–CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE
–THE PRESCHOOL/EARLY YEARS OF LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT CONSTITUTE THE FOUNDATION FOR “EVERYTHING” IN LIFE
–EVERY PARENT WANTS WHAT’S BEST FOR THEIR CHILD(REN)
–THE HUMAN BRAIN PLAYS A COMPLICIT ROLE IN “EVERYTHING” WE DO
–AS MUCH AS 90% OF THE BRAIN IS DEVELOPED BY AT LEAST AGE ‘5’
**Therefore, the only truly available platform for a united humanitarian front dedicated to significant world change would be to prioritize human child brain development as the foremost agenda and activity for advancing human progress and establishing the basic building blocks of problem-solving that lead to genuine diversity, peace and prosperity.
Yes, people have different ideas about how children ought to be raised, taught and disciplined, but this problem is easily solved when people actually learn what early brain development really consists of. The difficult part is asking people to put their beliefs aside. If people could realize that the real reason we all have so many incoherent belief systems is really because we lack an understanding about real brain development – and it is “beliefs” that have filled in these gaps. When people have the opportunity to comprehend the natural elements of brain development, then people could easily sacrifice their beliefs in favor of children’s best developmental opportunities. The brain was developed long before any belief systems developed, so unless people love their belief systems more than they love their children – which I’ve never heard anyone proclaim – then there should be zero problem resolving this problem.
If EARLY CHILDHOOD development is the FOUNDATION FOR EVERYTHING IN LIFE, then what is stopping us from USING early childhood development to FIX THE WORLD ???
