First, virtually all creatures can inbreed for generations before abnormalities spring up. All except humans. Why would it be that evolution awkwardly constructed one species to have the highest awareness (by far!) than any other and yet have such restrictions in inbreeding, with good probability of issues in the first generation, and high odds in the second?

I believe we debated this in the past. And I still believe now as I did then.
Abundance, is a boring thing.
How many of you would truly be happy being a king and queen of all you see. Oh, you say yes now, but after a few hundred years you would wish for excitement, drama, and the dangers of life. The thrill seekers would not be happy unless their was a mountain to jump off of rather than watching your robot do it.
Is not the Abundance paradigm, a thing of our ancient past? Was it not this very same thing that lead to the "Atlantis" wars? It will eventually lead once again to the haves, and the have not.
You can not force everyone to be happy. Some will always want to wallow in their grief, no matter what it is. Some will always have a challenge that is greater than your system will allow. Some will always want to fight or war because that is what makes them happy. Some will want to do their own work rather than have a bot do it for them.
You speak of a system that can never be achieved, completely. There will always be a new horizon to mount and achieve.
Are most ancient ancestors are "Lizard Hearted" because they would not have survived their own ordeal if they had to love the life form that was eating them alive. And our most recent ancestors that do live in your abundance paradigm, are they not held captive by it?
I disagree, love is the most special attribute in the universe, and to be realized, it must have a price put on it. Otherwise. it becomes abused just like the abundance paradigm of the present day "Global Elite" you are so quick to condemn. They were given everything for free, in a warped and perverted type of love, which is actually greed, on a family level.
The universe is not a creation? There is no "Divine" guidance, above us? Then I would say, your eyes are not open, my friend.

Interesting OP, S&F
Only a couple of problems that I see... Primarily, the idea that anything can be "probably" more true or factual than anything else. That's a fallacy, in my obtuse opinion. There's no such thing as "more true" or "more factual," it's all simply a matter of consensus among the ruling elite at any given point in the history of humankind. What the peasants think or believe is meaningless drivel — it's the elite in finance and politics and academia and religion and entertainment who create your reality at any given point in time.
