associated with the mind. This transition will not be easy as our cognitive development has only
been at the infant stages within its development. It’s as if we are adult children wondering whywe still crave snacks, buy cars we don’t need, or eat snacks late night. Although, there arethose in whom we call patient who delay’s their instant gratif
ication; how can we define virtuousbehaviors if the information on the subject is barely at the subsurface?
Thiroux & Krasemann authors of Ethics “Theory and Practice” write
about thedevelopment of the good or virtuous human being.
This sentiment hinges on Aristotle’s
Nicomachean Ethics in which implies that the basic act of human beings is to reason; which isdescribed as a virtuous activity. So, the choices that leads to a moral and virtuous behavior deals with the quality of your character, the development of your mental state and theattainment of a whole and complete life. As human beings attempt to incorporate this state of
equilibrium in their lives; they must not forget that it takes time and it won’t happen overnight. I
think this may be the gap that needs to be closed between reason and impulse; the gap thatshows the different intellectual patterns of development within each individual.Overall, we need to get over our vices and begin to strengthen our resolve as a planet tobecome more virtuous. I think it can happen and will as global shift moves this planet intounexplored levels of psychological reasoning and mental development like never before. Self
discipline will definitely be a prime catalyst for the morality of mankind in centuries to come; asthis wave of technological information will usher in levels of understanding into the behavioralpatterns of mankind.
