Approaching the final — conscious — phase of Human development
Question from the Internet:
“Humanity - we - are obviously not able to act from reason and good judgement (judging by the very poor state the world is in today). So from What should we act to be able to improve our situation and put pandemics, poverty and depression behind us?”
This is a very important - very complex - question, which touches the core of Humanity’s problems!
First of all probably very few people world agree with your opening statement, as most would believe that they act from reason, through good judgement. And they honestly believe so!
The problem is that our reason, “good judgement” is inherently egocentric, subjective, where reasonable, “good” means what “I” find reasonable, what is “good” from “my” subjective point of view.
This is neither evil, nor sinful. We are programmed like this by Nature’s evolution, we didn’t have any free choice about this.
Evolution gave Human beings a unique, unparalleled, individual self-awareness, sense of uniqueness, where we all feel -regardless of how aware of this we are - that the Universe revolves around our “self”, and “I” relate to the Universe -including other Humans - as the system that exists to serve me.
This unique Human self-awareness, self-serving, self-justifying individualistic consciousness reached it’s maximum intensity in our narcissistic generation.
The problem is that whole we have reached the peak of egotistic Human development, we also evolved into a globally integrated, totally interdependent world. And both seemingly opposite, paradoxical directions originate from Nature’s evolution!
This is all purposeful.
Contrary to other parts of Nature - that are instinctively, blindly integrated into Nature’s system - Human beings are expected, destined to achieve such integration consciously, purposefully, methodically by their own effort - above and against their original program.
This will give us an unprecedented, total perspective, understanding of Nature’s system in the contrast between our egotistic, individual oppositness to the system and the consciously acquired integration into the system.
So now we need to work towards acquiring a completely new, uniquely collective mind, intelligence to replicate, copy Nature’s “mind”, integrative thinking. Then we will effortlessly find solutions to all present, seemingly unsolvable global problems and will be able to prevent any new ones.
At the same time we will occupy our rightful place at the peak of Natural evolution as Nature’s conscious, objective - selflessly collective - observers ana partners.
