Changing Human connections for a better life
Question from the Internet:
“If you could change anything at all in life or for the world to be better, what would it be? Why?”
I think the pandemic is showing very clearly what’s wrong with the world and in general with life today.
While we can see without any doubt that we evolved into a globally integrated, fully interdependent world, we can also see that in our present state we are incompatible with such conditions.
We all try to react to, solve problems individually, naturally, in a selfish, subjective way, knowingly, unknowingly at each other’s expense.
As a result, despite investing billions of dollars into vaccines and other measures, the situation is only getting worse, while the pandemic also highlighted how unsustainable our previous lifestyle — built on excessive overconsumption, ruthless, exclusive competition — is.
The biggest problem is that we can’t build positive, sustainable, mutually responsible, mutually complementing interconections, cooperation with each other. And problem solving ability, facilitating our collective survival in a global, integral world hinges on such connections, cooperation.
But our inherently egocentric, individualistic, distrusting and hateful nature prevents us from forming those connections.
Thus in order to solve our mounting global problems and to survive we will need to learn how to build "Nature-like" mutual integration, cooperation above and against our inherent nature.
First of all we have to do this as we have no other choice to avoid a global meltdown threatening us from all directions.
But when we built such connections we will gradually sense a completely new, qualitatively much higher sense of life, existence as a result of the global “circulation", communication we will feel through our “Nature-like" connections.
Just like the qualitatively much higher sense of life our body provides above a basic, single-cell sense of life, a Human “super-organism" with its collective mind, collective experience will provide us with a new, incomparable life experience.
