A single planet with a single and mutually integrated Humanity

Question from the Internet:

“If it were up to you, what would you prefer, one planet with no countries or borders and all the people living together as one, or the way it is now?”

With all due respect, this does not depend on what we prefer.

Humanity is an integral part of Nature’s lawful and deterministic system.

Nature is a finely balanced and totally and mutually integrated system. This whole system is a single, living organism, where each element has its irreplaceable and crucially important part to play.

Our human segregation, humanity being broken into competing and ruthlessly fighting nations, regions, fractions, religions, and different ideologies, is simply an illusion our inherently egocentric, subjective, individualistic, and exploitative consciousness and perception of reality created.

And now, we can see how we “fare” and “succeed” in this egocentric and self-justifying illusion: we are on the brink of self-destruction.

Humanity’s problem-solving ability and our short and long-term survival depend on adapting ourselves to Nature’s system, living according to Nature’s strict and unforgiving laws that govern the general balance and homeostasis life depends on.

If we do not achieve this wisely, willingly, and proactively, then increasing and intolerable suffering will force us to adapt.
