Recall that one of the thinking styles that is stagnating human evolution the most, is the so-called Pluralist Relativism (presented in the Unplug Course of the Master Program in Integral Human Development of the Vital Learning Platform), which is who believes he has overcome the religious, scientific, technological and materialist vision of the world today... who believes he has the most humane, solidary, or spiritual solutions... who believes that in life everything has justification or everythingis right, and avoids assuming positions or thoughts to avoid conflict or effort.

Do you know that 99% of your thoughts are useless. William James put it best: “A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.” All my life I’ve been obsessed with practical things. Practical philosophy, practical knowledge, practical books, practical work, and practical advice.

For most of us, our whole life is based on opposition, on some act of the will to go against the flow. And we cannot conceive an action without volition, without effort; Our life is based on it. Our social, economic, and “spiritual” life is a series of efforts that always culminate in a certain result. And we believe that opposition is essential, necessary.
