A new modernity awaits humanity, defined by hyperconnectivity provided by technology. Upon its arrival, this new age will spark into existence an enlightenment of our species. A moment of realisation and understanding of what will soon be deemed as the basis of our being. The truth about humanity's reality begins with analysis breaching the traditional confines of our internal environment, turning head and focus to our external existence--the Universe. It is only with this shift in perspective, prompted by elements of enlightenment such as the realisation of our species' commonality and purpose, that will provide us with hope. Otherwise, without correction of error of the fundamental embarrassment of our age defined by false conflict, will humanity stand a chance of survival and be truly safe from threats to our existence such as by artificial intelligence and alternate life. The dawn of enlightenment is upon us, embrace it, realise it, share it. Otherwise the near-generational future of our species will be inevitably death. For our enemies lay as our friends, but for our fate ourselves will be to blame. It is our choice whether we continue to waste humanity, or whether we embrace the beauty of our being and move forward towards a brighter future. The light of the enlightenment awaits us.
