As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic hastening, sharpening the imminent socio-economic crisis which was inevitable with or without the pandemic, Humanity has reached unique crossroads — together with unprecedented thinking time to ponder where to proceed to.
The pandemic and the subsequent global crisis situations following will hammer home the message that evolution has locked us into a single, fully integrated, global world, where problem-solving and survival requires global, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation.
On the other hand, our inherently egocentric, subjective, and individualistic nature keeps pulling us towards isolation, uncoordinated, individualistic and nationalistic reactions, success, and survival at the expense of others.
Thus we have two choices, paths ahead of us.
One is the so-called “path of suffering”: stubbornly trying to continue our way of life as before until the recurring and worsening crisis situations will force us through intolerable suffering to yield and start cooperating in order to secure our collective survival.
The other option is a conscious, wiser path: proactively learning the fundamental, “iron laws” of Nature’s integral system keeping the crucial balance and homeostasis life and optimal development depends on. As a result, we will understand the system, its developmental plan driving everything — including Humanity — towards the most optimal integration. Then we will be able to adjust, adapt ourselves before the blows, preventing the forthcoming crisis situations, and elevating ourselves to a qualitatively much higher, collective Human existence.
