       What notions are most viable as memes
       On which to found a fit philosophy
       To realize our species’ fondest dreams,
       Making of us the best that we can be?

       This is an urgent question to be asked
       Because we’ve grown so capable of harm,
       And that propensity means we’re now tasked
       To cease our hostile habits and disarm.

       It’s concord we most need to cultivate—
       A loving, caring, sharing attitude,
       Devoid of envy, anger, pride and hate,
       With amity and happiness pursued.

            We sapiens have still to realize
            Our full capacity for growing wise.
