The improbable and history PDF Print E-mail
Life – Consciousness

Fall of Warsaw in 1939The 'improbable' is the 'neutron' of history, that critical factor which totally permeates human nature and its mass peak-points. And yet, we never become conscious of the improbable in the course of its realisation as long as our consciousness is alienated by daily routine.[1]
Everyday life is a catalytic state of the rapid spread of the improbable and its neoplastic forces over people.

Were we not on holiday in 1 September 1939? And yet it was then that the most savage of wars, which led to Hiroshima, started. Did we, humanity, when the Nazis came to power with Krupp money, understand what was going to happen?

Now, however, when the neutron (the neutronium bomb) has awakened, we have to realise that the improbable 'World Accident' is closer than we can imagine, because in neutron the History of the Universe is summed up, and because in viruses and small life lies the History of Life.

We cannot allow neutron to be ruled by our palaeolithic - from an ethical and psychological point of view - civilisation. We cannot entrust, through our indifference, the history of the Universe to the economy of greed and to the political play-acting which dictates chance and the morass of the passions as the supreme factor.

The 'improbable' does nor relieve us of our responsibility. Suffering will visit us, however much, with masochistic blindness, we now fail to realise it, for every one of our moral errors.[2]
