Is humanity’s advanced consciousness their greatest affliction?
It’s up there but not the greatest affliction. It’s akin to Love. Is the pain of heartbreak worth having loved someone? I think most would agree while the pain is bad and never seems to get easier, it is in fact worth it. Such is life.
As part of “the consciousness affliction”, I think “sheer bliss” is found in the “now moment” as they say we should be living in. While an animal lives in the moment without contemplating it’s mortality it is ignorant of the vast inter-workings of things such as death.
I really like this question. It has made me have a realization while writing this response (had to go back and change my response from “Yes” to “it’s up there”) as thinking about this lead me to realize that humanity not realizing we are all brothers and sister. We are all one family, We are all One. All is Love and Love is all. We are all “All”. Like drops of water we see ourselves as individuals without realizing we are but drops in a vast ocean of water. Without realizing we are also “the ocean” and not a mere separate drop of water.
So perhaps the seemingly “Greatest Affliction” is in fact our ticket to becoming more connect as we advance and grow our individual and collective consciousnesses we will inevitably reach a point where we are able to break down these walls that we have put up to protect “our” drop of water. We will be able to reach a point where we can work in unison like a bee or ant colony. See and feel each others true feelings and thoughts. To connect on the most deepest level peering past the confines of language as a communication restriction and see one’s true heart and feelings. To look at harming someone else as if it wear to harm yourself or loved one.

To a degree, yes. Advanced consciousness gives rise to existential angst and a feeling of being disconnected from the natural world. This can lead to depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues.
