A Human society built on consciously achieved balance
Question from the Internet:
“Which social forces shape our existence?”
Our existence is brought to life and is influenced by two opposite forces. IN Nature life is generated, everything is conducted by negative and positive, attractive and repulsive forces.
Our consciousness, perception of reality is sensed between contrasts, constant comparative research between a thing and its opposite.
We can observe the same forces in between human beings, hate and love, attraction and rejection, peace and war, unity and segregation, support and exploitation, and so on. And without one side of the coin, we would never be able to discern, examine, understand the other side.
Human beings are born “imbalanced” contrary to all other elements, creatures in Nature. Although animals for example also have survival instincts, all kinds of actions, different means to cater for their own wellbeing, to cater for their necessities and the necessities of their offsprings, animals never go beyond, disrupt nature’s general balance and homeostasis life and optimal development depends on. Animals leave their natural habitat, break out of the usual “circle of life” only during natural catastrophes, or lately as a result of human interference.
Human beings have the same survival instincts, but our self-servitude, self-justification knows no boundaries, we do not even consider, do not even know, comprehend the Natural balance that protects, facilitates life. Thus we consume, manipulate, destroy everything through our insatiable and uncontrolled selfish, egoistic desire for pleasures, wealth, power, while we also destroy, manipulate and exploit each other for fun, without any actual natural need or necessity.
So in society at this stage, the only forces that shape us are the selfish, egoistic, destructive, and exploitative forces. This is why human history is a helplessly recurring chain of vicious cycles, while our own generation is helplessly stumbling from crisis to crisis while inching towards self-destruction.
We can solve our problems and save ourselves by purposefully, methodically learning, introducing Nature’s balance and mutual integration into human society. With that we could neutralize, balance, complement our inherently negative forces and existence as by birth from humans Nature’s positive balancing force is missing.
When we reach such a conscious, proactive balance and can measure the 2 opposing forces in Nature through ourselves, through the balance we created, achieved through our own efforts — by harnessing Nature’s forces — we finally complete our Human evolution and become the Natural system’s only conscious, insider but independent observers and partners.
This is our actual evolutionary Human purpose in life and the switch from blind, instinctive, “one-sided”, negative development to a conscious, balanced, “two-sided”, integral development has to start in our generation.
