But we largely misapprehend the nature of humanity because it has been split by a confused language. Language was the metaphysics of the most ancient science that gave us agriculture, cities, and the pyramids but this language became too complex and failed being replaced with modern language. The ancient science and metaphysics wasn't translatable into the new language and died over several centuries but man didn't forget the philosophy; the applied results of ancient science. This philosophy became religion which usurped all the words and concepts related to human spirituality. This spirituality is natural to man but religion turned it into a set of beliefs and took the words away.
Today there are severe problems caused by myriad fundamental ideas and practices. People are trained as specialists and often can't see the big picture. Language leads us to believe we know far more than we actually do individually and collectively. Applied science is centuries behind the times because the vocabulary of spirituality is usurped and because those trained in the sciences tend to renounce anything that can't be shown experimentally. Never mind we know nothing, if God(s) can't be shown then t(he)y can't exist.
We've lost touch not only with nature and each other but with our own spirituality.
