Can we create a perfect world?

Question from the Internet:

“If you were given a chance to create your own universe/world what would be the difference between this to the world we’re living in right now? Vague but for example a world where love does not exist or a world where there is pure equality for everyone”

The beauty is, that a “perfect world” or reality already exists, it is already created for us. So we do not need to invent or create anything. We need to adapt ourselves to perfection.

We live in a dark and hostile world, where true love does not even exist and we can’t even talk about equality, we do not even understand what love or equality actually means.

We live in an artificial “human bubble” that is created by our inherently egocentric, subjective, and individualistic worldview and perception of reality. In this human bubble — from my own perspective — “I” exist separated from and against everything and everybody else. “I” constantly have to fight and compete for everything I think I need and deserve. And so does everybody else.

And we exhaust ourselves through this constant competition and fighting, our only happiness comes when we can succeed to some extent at the expense of others and we can prove ourselves above others.

In contrast, when we look at nature, when we look at our own biological body, we see selfless, mutually complementing coexistence and cooperation between elements and parts that create the perfect conditions for life and optimal development.

We can observe “true love” which is the totally selfless and unconditional service of the whole system, which “true love” is the single most important prerequisite of life.

We can see how “true, relative equality” works, where despite all the elements being different in size, strength, and function, they are all equally important since nature’s integral living system would not work without either of them. And all the comprising parts receive, justly and proportionately exactly what they need and deserve so they could continue performing their crucially important and irreplaceable role and purpose for the whole.

Although we have been developing and stubbornly pushing our artificial human system — that is based on selfish overconsumption and succeeding at the expense of everything and everybody — for millennia, today we have to face the fact that this artificial human system — that is incompatible with nature — is not viable and it is self-destructing.

In order to save ourselves and pave the way for a better, safer, peaceful, loving, and equal collective future, we will have to adapt ourselves to nature’s laws and system consciously and proactively.

And it will be specifically this conscious and proactive self-adaptation and self-development — above and against our inherent nature — that will make us “truly Humans” — beings that become similar to nature, against their instincts through their own conscious efforts.
