Question from the Internet:
“What would a heavily de-globalized world look like?”
I am not sure what you mean exactly under the notion of “de-globalized”, but if you mean severing the global interconnections between nations, people, isolating everybody and reach trying to work, survive, develop by themselves, then such a world would look dead.
Without the crucial global interconnections the life-giving circulation, communication world disappear from the world.
Globalization is not something man-made, I doesn’t relate to markets, businesses, trade or entertainment only. Globalization means global integration, global interdependence, which is an absolute evolutionary necessity without which we can’t survive.
We live in a “globally integrated” Natural system, where everything is interconnected with everything else - through the whole Universe - and each system, subsystem depends on each other in a finely sustained balance, mutually complementing cooperation.
In order for Humanity to survive, we also have to be similar, compatible with this cosmic integration. Otherwise we remain like harmful foreign bodies in the system, and then the system - which is infinitely greater, stronger than Humanity - will reject us.
We already started to feel this rejection in the form of the pandemic, and the spreading, deepening global socioeconomic crisis that is taking apart the present, incompatible and unsustainable Human system.
The problem is that with our inherently egocentric, individualistic, subjective consciousness, perception of reality we don’t even comprehend, grasp what Nature wants from us. Until now we simply, blindly executed our original selfish program which Nature installed in us by default.
And now seemingly Nature wants us to change in a way we have to ability to change. Fortunately Nature also installed in us a unique Human mind, that is capable of critical self-assessment, initiating self-change.
We can - and many people already do - recognize our innate incompatibility with Nature’s integration, with the Natural laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life, optimal development depends on.
And through unique empirical scientists - who have been studying Human behavior, our original program in contrast to Nature’s perfectly balanced, selfless, altruistic system - we also have a special, purposeful and highly practical method that can help us “upgrade” our inherent software to reach the necessary compatibility - to learn how to adapt to Natural Globalization.
