Collective problem-solving and a new level of consciousness
Question from the Internet:
“Why do we have difficulties finding more accurate and constructive ways to address issues?”
We exist in a globally integrated and fully interdependent world. All the issues we are facing — it does not matter how local, independent, or isolated it seems at first — are global and integral.
At the same time, our inherent consciousness and perception of reality are 100% egocentric, subjective, and individualistic. We examine and compute everything through a very narrow and distorted — 100% self-serving and self-justifying — “pleasure/pain” software.
Thus inherently we are not built to comprehend or solve complex, global, and integral problems and issues. We simply do not have that ability as long as we remain as we are born.
Comprehending and solving complex, global, and integral problems is possible only through a unique “collective consciousness”, and “collective intellect” that we have to build consciously and proactively — it is not going to unfold by itself.
In order to create this “collective consciousness”, we need to build a single, mutually integrated human “super-organism”, in which we all become healthy, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing cells, all of us existing for the sake of others and for the sake and wellbeing of the whole system — above and against our inherent nature.
This contrast — achieving a state and existence above and against our original state and inner software — is the key. It is not enough that through this practically built collective existence and “computing” we will easily recognize and solve all our problems and prevent new ones. Succeeding and surviving in the physical world is simply a positive “side effect”.
Through this collective co-existence and collective consciousness we rise to a qualitatively much higher sense of Human existence. As we liberate ourselves from all the inherently egocentric, subjective, and individualistic limitations — like time, space, and motion — we gain a tangible and viscerally felt sense of existence that is beyond the boundaries of time, space, and even beyond physical life and death, since we will no longer associate our existence with our personal feelings and understanding, we won’t exist bounded to our biological bodies.
Instead, we will be “uploaded” — through our selfless and unconditional mutual integration for each other’s sake — into a non-physical and timeless “cloud” or thought where we can exist independently of anything physical or corporeal.
This has nothing to do with mysticism, religion, or utopia. We can achieve this here and now, even while we seemingly still exist in our biological bodies in this world, through the right, purposeful and practical method that is open and available for all.
