Behave today the way you expect people to do in 1,000 generations, if you really want to consider yourself enlightened.
Will eating way more than you should, pigging out, or solving your problems by hitting and killing people - will these things serve as "enlightened" behaviour akin to what we can expect the most wise and successful descendants of ours to live like in 1,000 generations?
Will putting your feet up, having easy jobs or mindless jobs in which, during meltdowns, you overwork - will this be what we expect that enlightened society in 1,000 generations to be full of?
People are usually concerned with what they are called and not what they deserve to be called. The reverse is more intelligent (to be concerned primarily with what you are entitled to be called or entitled to be seen as).
