“there is nothing to fear but fear itself”

The real problem of humanity is the following: We have paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions and godlike technology. And it is terrifically dangerous, and it is now approaching a crisis overall

-Edward O. Wilson

More proper and truthful version of this statement is:

The real problem is that we are stuck in a manner of viewing ourselves as though we are not what we are, that is, as though our emotional states are not what they actually are, ie paleolithic, that are institutions are something other than what they are, ie medieval, and our technology more than it is, ie godlike.

As an Object Oriented Ontology might propose: we are perpetually misunderstanding and misperceiving that actual situation of our objective universal being.
