During the end of 2010 I thought it necessary to gauge the everyday person’s point of view on spirituality. We too often consume ourselves with elaborate philosophical arguments that may or may not actually represent the real times threats and potential of the subject. While it is typically considered as a irrelevant to the broader philosophical arguments on spirituality, I felt it necessary to ask everyone I could: Why? Because these are the people who carry out spiritual missions (relief, revolts, etc.)
Why is spirituality so valuable. I needed to know from everyone else, “what’s the point?”
It turns our that the point is, according to about 2400 people so far, “to connect us all“. I’ll call it “connectivity”.
Approximately 29% of people think that the point is to provide a “design for life”, and another 20% have “other” understandings.
Per my latest book, I’ll present a logical economic model which suggests that it is not. Further, I think it is necessary to understand that all of the acceptance and tolerance within human and technological ability with not create pervasive harmonies for our species and those that we govern.
