Sharing Economy: Historical perspective

When our forebears were given the great gift of Self-reflective Intelligence, distinguishing them from the other animals, some 25,000 years ago, they would have become aware of the Presence of the Divine, of the Ultimate Source of all energy in the Universe.

But what were they to make of this experience? Mapping human ontogeny onto phylogeny, they were like infants in adult bodies, having no distorting beliefs preventing the dazzling light of Consciousness from radiating brilliantly through them, but also not having concepts that would enable them to understand what was inaccessible to the physical senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste.

In the event, it was not until the invention of the stored-program computer and Ted Codd’s nondeductive logic that we humans had the opportunity to make sense of all our experiences, from the mystical to the mundane.
