This chapter provides that one of the elements that accord humans power is the ability to think through various life processes without necessarily relying on the great cosmic plan that “gives meaning to life” (Harari 227). It also states that in current times, human beings appear to possess a lot more power than before. For instance, the author suggests that the life of a human being has transcended the idea that little reverence to God would lead to some level of disorder in the world and lead to a social collapse. The author gives a comparison between Syria and the Netherlands. He states that while the Netherlands is majorly an Atheist society, it is far more peaceful as compared to God-fearing Syria (Harari 235). The illustration, therefore, aims to showcase the idea that human beings have developed to the level at which they are more capable of looking into the specific ways in which they can attain order without necessarily paying close attention to the cosmic strength. It has also shown that human beings can manage themselves better without necessarily being exposed to “external supervision” (Harari 236).
