Building a perfect, Nature-like Human society
Question from the Internet:
“If nobody is superior, inferior, or equal but simply unique in their own way, then what does this mean in the latter of hierarchy?”
The state you describe is the actual, inherent state in Nature. Nature is a single, closed, fully, mutually integrated, and interdependent system.
There is nothing superior or inferior, all elements, parts are unique, and regardless of their size or function they are all equally important as none of the elements, parts are obsolete, and all are important for the most optimal function of the whole.
We can observe this in our own biological bodies, how this finely balanced, mutual integration and mutual complementation works, and how even without the smallest part the whole cannot remain healthy.
Since human beings are born from Nature, we exist in and evolve with Nature, optimal Human society also needs to be built like Nature. This is of course opposite to, repulsive for our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic, and exploitative egos, this is why human societies all through history have been built on unequal, oppressive hierarchies.
And this is why history is a helplessly recurring chain of vicious cycles and this is why our own civilization is also self-destructing.
Our next developmental step — our collective survival depends on — is learning how to build a Nature-like Human society above and against our inherent nature through the right, purposeful and practical method. The fact that we have to reach Nature-like mutual integration and by the reintegration into Nature consciously, against our instincts gives us our Human advantage and our free choice that is unparalleled in Nature. And it also makes us Nature’s only conscious, integrated but at the same time independent observers and partners.
