Are we losing our humanity?

Question from the Internet:

“Why are we losing our humanity?”

We are not losing our humanity because until now; we haven’t had our humanity yet.

Human beings are still in the process of development in order to become “truly Human”.

So far, we could say we have been potentially human or “humanoids”, a little bit different and “above” other animals. But we have been existing and developing blindly according to our instincts.

And in relation to that, we are actually worse and below other animals. Human instincts are uniquely “tinged” with the human ego, which makes us inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, subjective and individualistic. Instead of the instinctive integration and “mutual guarantee” that is prevalent in Nature, “humanoids” instinctively overconsume everything, ruthlessly compete and succeed and survive at the expense of other “humanoids” and Nature.

While Nature is based on inherent balance and mutually complementing cooperation, “humanoids” behave like cancer, consuming and destroying everything and everybody until they destroy themselves.

On the other hand, we also have a so far dormant, unique human mind that is capable of critical self-assessment and initiating a unique self-change and self-development that can lead us to become “truly Human”.

Nature’s evolution created us in our originally “unnatural” and self-destructive form, and evolution also gave us this unique human mind to recognize how self-destructive our original nature is so we would develop a desire and need to change and further develop ourselves.

Humanity reached these unique crossroads in our generation where our self-destructive tendencies brought us to the brink of extinction, while the previously dormant “human mind” recognizing the root cause of our problems in us awakens in more and more people.

We are at the threshold of a completely new, this time conscious and purposeful phase of human development where we can learn what it means to be Human and also how to become Human above and against our original “unnatural” form.

We have the necessary, unique, purposeful and practical method that can help us in this self-recognition and observe and study Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system so we can adapt ourselves to it. We can also learn how to find and harness the necessary developmental forces in nature to help us change and upgrade ourselves.

This process that leads to finding our actual and true “Humanity” has already started.
