What Makes Children Seem Stranger and More Eccentric Today than ever before to Parents and Adults?

What Makes Children Seem Stranger And More Eccentric Today Than Ever Before To Parents And Adults?

Children today seem strange and eccentric because they are born with preexisting rudiments of the next social state of the world, one that is global and integral.

While this new global integral reality might seem strange to adults today, to children it is completely natural and even desirable.

It is not children who have a problem, it is the parents and teachers who are trying to implement a new method of connection among people, a method offered to them by nature. The adults are still in a transition phase, while the children are already ripe for it.

We are in the midst of a transition from an egoistic, proprietary, individual level – where the relationships between us are self-serving – to an altruistic, integral, and global level, where everyone must be interconnected.

The Psychology Of The Integral Society

The above points were taken from the book The Psychology of the Integral Society by Dr. Michael Laitman and Dr. Anatoly Ulianov.

I have a 21 year old son and have been around enough people from this younger generation to thoroughly agree with the statement and author of this blog concerning the youth. They are on a totally different page and perceive things in life totally different then generations before them. I am not judging whether it’s a good or bad thing. I am just saying it is a very different way of thinking and seeing things. ‘Almost as if they’re from a different planet.

Sorry – I don’t agree.

I raised my children and they are now married and I am now a grandfather. Comparing all the generations (grand child, sons, myself, my father, and grandfather) the childhood to adolescent to adult transitions were remarkably similar, based on the accumulated conversations over my sixty years with my kin. Possibly the children are learning more at an earlier age, but this is only a result of more efficient and available communication. Your question – “Children seem stranger to Parents?” cannot be answered objectively. A Parent is exposed to one set of children for a twenty year period and very rarely is that circumstance repeated again for another twenty year period – so how can you compare your child to other children that you don’t see on a daily basis. I will agree that parents and adults have a tendency to think “kids don’t act like they used to …” – but you just need to read Homer’s IIiad/ Odyssey, the Hebrew Scriptures, or any other classic dealing with inter-generational conflicts to see the more things change – the more things stay the same. We humans are the result of a million or so years of evolution. Technology and the ZOHAR are going to find our biological clocks can move only so fast, and in order to grow and develope you will have to allocate those precious months and years to our children and young adults, no matter how much we wish (or forecast) otherwise.
BOTTOM LINE: I don’t see things changing the way you are alluding to for another 100,000 years or so.

I tend to agree in respect of our little ones born after the turn of the new millenium. My 4 year old Son & my 11 year old inherited autistic Daughter are active examples of humanity’s finer altruistic qualities. My 17 year old inherited Daughter, however, is heavily dressed to the left & monoegoistical . My 13 year old inherited Son often veers from left to right which is a noticeable self correction. I bought this book for my Islamic 17 year old as part of her Christmas present recently, together with Self Interest vs Altruism in the Global Era. Hopefully she will read them when she is ready to follow the middle line,,, in Mutual Bestowal,,, & hopefully she will lend the books to me too,,,
