Progression from Childhood

Young generations initially recognize only the current circumstances of their local surroundings. Their vision of reality covers just what is within their reach. They tend to accept it by default, and rely on it for practical purposes. As long as the current environment is stable and fairly predictable, it is not necessary to keep focusing on factors that underlie it more profoundly.

Over time, however, local correlations turn out to be uncertain. Unexpected circumstances tend to cause great surprises. This is why it becomes critical to understand logic on a broader scale, beyond locally known correlations. In order to do so, an ever broader spectrum of world events must be pursued.

While growing up, youngsters encounter unexpected events fairly often. Each time they confront a new event, they must update their overall understanding of the world. Experiencing a sudden earthquake, for example, can totally reverse person’s general conclusions about reality at large.

Whenever a new puzzling event takes place, it needs to be analyzed, and its root causes must be incorporated into the most major concept of what reality is all about. Having acquired a broader spectrum of reality, people are able to understand, predict and control a greater range of events.

It makes them superior with respect those who focus only on smaller and more immediate surroundings. To remain independent, it becomes necessary to keep making deeper observations and reaching further conclusions time after time. Doing so steadily amounts to broadening one’s overall concept of reality.
