Are ants superior to Humans?

Question from the Internet:

“Are ants considered superior to humans in that they cooperate with one another, whereas humans don’t? Ants let other ants merge into the main line of traffic, whereas on freeways and roads, people do not allow others to merge, tying up traffic.”

On the one hand, ants and other animals that cooperate and exist through selfless, mutually complementing cooperation are superior to humans, simply based on the fact that they will survive — being compatible with nature’s laws and evolution’s overall direction towards integrality — while humanity is heading for self-destruction and extinction.

On the other hand, the mutual integration we observe in nature is “unconscious”; it is blind and instinctive since all elements in nature — except humans — are automatically arranged and governed by nature’s developing and governing forces.

Human beings were “created” by nature with an “unnatural,” inherently selfish, egocentric, and individualistic nature — acting and existing like cancer — so we could achieve the same nature-like mutual integration and mutually complementing cooperation ants have by our own efforts, completely purposefully and consciously.

As a result, human beings can become nature’s only fully conscious, seamlessly integrated, and at the same time independent “inner observers” and equal partners since we achieve what other elements of nature have instinctively, in full awareness, above and against our inherent nature.

This is how human beings will truly become the “peak of natural evolution.”
