At present we are “prospering, succeeding” like cancer
Question from the Internet:
“What are the people gaining, and what is the world losing?”
At the moment nobody is gaining.
Our usual, selfish, subjective gain as we succeed at each other’s and Nature’s expense is the short-sighted gain of cancer, as at the end — which end is getting closer each day — we all lose as we all die this way or that way.
Since we exist in nature’s fully integrated, interdependent, single living system, we can gain only together, when we all learn how to act, prosper through mutually responsible, mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation, when we all make calculations for the benefit of the whole collective above any selfish, individualistic calculations.
In such a way — that unique, empirical, natural scientists call “mutual guarantee” — we all receive everything we need for a natural, modern, healthy life so we could all most optimally fulfill our unique,. the irreplaceable role, the purpose for the whole system.
Then we will become a human society that adapted itself to Nature’s strict, unchanging laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life depends on.
