It seems that today world is in chaotic state that is true but look from this point of view. There are cycles in this universe most developed ancient civilizations were in the state of order but when they reach the highest level of development chaos takes a place big wars occur between them. Some of them left planet earth because they have advanced ships to travel into the universe and inhabit others planets in different galaxies. But rest stayed on earth and fight almost to extinction. Their weapons for war has highly developed that earth almost has destroyed.
On the modern satellite images of some specific places on planet earth are pieces of evidence of massive craters which are leftovers from nuclear explosions and wars of ancient civilizations.
Some of the ancients survive and when the wars finished earth has polluted with radiation and atmosphere badly was damaged, their DNA mutated and damages occur in DNA helix. Earth went through a dark age but somehow managed to recover together with the rest of living beings. We are leftovers of ancients and we carry their DNA. Currently, earth and all living beings going and progressing from chaos to order.
When humanity reaches an end of a cycle and maximum level of development and order, chaos will take place again and downfall.
If we want to better understand the nature than we must research the phenomenon of cycles and seasons because they are in a core of everything that exists.
