The Real Enemies of Enlightenment Progress

According to Enlightenment ways of thinking, real progress is impeded by thoughtlessness. Thoughtlessness crosses all boundaries, religious, political, cultural, moral, etc.

Awareness, thoughtfulness, and reflection are the conditions for intellectual growth.


Enlightenment progress is only one form of progress, however, and a very limited and skewed one. Real progress is ultimately spiritual, either towards God or away from Him, and this progress is impeded only by sin.

Nevertheless, awareness, thoughtfulness, and reflection are still conditions to grow spiritually and avoid sin through the exercise of prudence.
