The current epoch is a period in human history, which has lasted from the late nineteenth century to the present. It was, as far as our modern era is concerned, an age of peace and progress. However, the people of this century were not able to take part in these things; instead they chose to stay on with what they knew best: the arts and sciences. They passed on what had already been taught to them.
Many people do not know what the current epoch was like before the period which we know as the present age. Because of our tendency to believe that what is happening today must be the same as it was yesterday, many people do not have an idea about the kind of situation in the future world would be going through. In other words, a past epoch is something completely different from a present one. Although the methods which were used in an ancient age may be the same as those which are applied in the present age, the condition of the individual people of those times is totally different from what is happening in the present.
At the present time, this previous epoch is known as the present age. Although a change in technology has made our lives easier, our tastes have remained pretty much the same. Our use of chemicals as weapons is still prevalent, and the future is still being predicted to be one of wars. More people are trying to sell this false scenario to us, even though the current epoch itself has brought nothing but peace and social development.
Another thing which is different from the past epoch is that the rate of natural disasters has also increased over the centuries. But this does not mean that we should avoid doing anything because it is harder to deal with. In the same way, it is important to take care of the environment because it would not be sustainable if we destroy it.
Moreover, we should also understand the character of each and every one of our fellow-citizensbecause we need to take into consideration what will be good for each and every one of us as a particular people. We should be very careful about what we do because we are talking about the well-being of every individual person. What we want is not just good for us, but also for our fellow-citizens.
Of course, we all need to find a common ground. With regard to this, it is important to keep in mind that the current epoch is something that should never be compared to any other period in human history. We should avoid comparing ourselves to the past because that would only lead to being hypocritical.
In short, music is still good and science is still useful and exciting. Therefore, there are still lots of things that we should keep aside. When we think of these things, we will be able to come up with something similar to what we are doing now.
However, the current epoch time is all about producing more in order to create new effects and products for our people. With this in mind, it is important to maintain a human civilization that using this time wisely and for the good of mankind.
