At the start of a new, conscious phase of Human evolution

Question from the Internet:

“What is happening in the world now?”

We are in a unique end-game, as our instinctive, blind human development — driven by the inherently selfish, individualistic, exploitative ego — has exhausted itself and turned self-destructive like the proverbial snake that eats its own tail.

While previously this insatiable, all-consuming, all-conquering, inquisitive ego propelled the extraordinary human evolution above the evolution of other developed primates — that remained virtually unchanged for millions of years — now the ego is driving us towards extinction on multiple fronts — social breakdown, destroying Nature, wars and due to the inability to solve our global problems as we cannot connect, cooperate above the egos.

Nature’s evolution is showing us in different ways, that in the fully integrated, interdependent, closed living Natural system the cancer-like human beings cannot survive.

Our uniqueness above animals is that we can consciously recognize the dire strait we are in and we have the ability to initiate, start the necessary self-changes with the help of Nature’s forces, laws and thus adapt ourselves to Nature’s laws and evolution’s flow.

“Survival of the fittest” means the fittest to integrate, the fittest to become a perfectly integrated, mutually responsible, mutually complementing element of the whole system. But only Human beings can do this consciously, proactively, retaining an independent observer status, ability to actively partner with Nature even after reaching integration.

This is the crossroads we are at now, at the start of a new, this time conscious, Natural truly Human evolution.
