What is the ultimate drive of humanity?
Originally, me and my friend hypothesized that the main drive for humanity was love. Love is too vague of a term though, the broadness of the term and various context of which it can be associated with, cannot fully describe the drive for humanity. Yes, love for an individual’s interests and what makes them happy is a drive, and without love for these things, passion and initiative would be lost, thus, impeding humanity’s progression. After further contemplation, we reconsidered our original thought, we looked for the ultimate love of humanity, if love is a very powerful drive, then the strongest love of humanity must be the main drive. We then concluded that the love of knowledge is our ultimate love, we are all on a quest for knowledge, we just decide on different topics to gain knowledge in, it is the thing we love and are most prideful of. This conclusion led to the thought of, in our quest for knowledge we create opinions and beliefs, and we all share the want to spread our own belief, because as we spread this we gain power often times, and this power is what feeds our ego the most. So the ultimate drive, must be, as Nietzsche said is the will to power
